Cincy @ Miami (ohio)

Rice @ Houston

Umass @ Temple


Here are my picks. I hope I'm wrong with Tulsa.

I just don't see it happening at all this year. The P6 AAC is simply too far superior to the Mid-Major G4. 07-coffee3

Good point. Upsets can happen though.

Temple hosts UMass this Friday. I am not full of confidence that we will win.

Toledo will be favored over Tulsa, so that is the obvious choice.

Me too, but its a toss up game, tulsa's offense seems fine but the defense is struggling.

Temple vs Umass could be a concern but i think temple gets the win.

Cincy looked better, hopefully they handle business.

Houston better win.

Temple will be fine in this game. I wonder how long Umass stays in D-1 without a football conference?

Toledo doesn't have the necessary defense to sustain Tulsa spread style offense.

QB's who play in said style offenses rarely often get sacked even worse when QB's scrambling abilities are breath taking.

Tulsa by 2 touchdowns

Could happen... but if the ULL game was any indicator? Toledo will score... a lot. Which means Tulsa will have to score 2 whole more TD's than "a lot." And Toledo is a pretty good team at home OOC. Toledo has one OOC loss at home in 5 seasons and that was 2014: (11-3 SEC East Champs Mizzou 49-24). The Rockets have beaten ISU, Navy and UC at home in that stretch.

Whoa. Care to make a wager? I need to win money back after SLHNavy took me to the cleaners.

Toledo could upset Tulsa, it unlikely but that is a possibility. The other mid majors on the list are just not good enough to pull upsets

Toledo will more than likely be favored Saturday...The Rockets play well at home, and usually steps up their game when highly respected competition visits the Glass Bowl...04-cheers

I'm thinking Tulsa and Cincinnati both have good shots...and if I'm honest, being a UT employee, I'm pulling for them.

They'll probably be up around 25,000 for this one. Typically the OOC non-FCS games get about a full house. Especially with it being a night game and Michigan and OSU playing in the day, I would presume it'll be close to a full house. Toledo normally averages in the mid-20k's/game every year and this season there is a lot of hype.

This Toledo game concerns me. They have a veteran quarterback and our defense has not looked good against veteran quarterbacks so far.

The GB is a cozy little stadium with a capacity of 26,200...
A good night for football, I'm thinking 26,000 ... We had over 30,000 when Boise State came to town several years back...
