You have to have the ECU UConn line wrong. ECU can't be a TD favorite against anyone right now.

It's already moved to 6.5, but it was 7

I see UConn -4.5-5 on ESPN and USA Today score pages. Either way, I'm not watching that game.

Matt. I see that now too. ESPN had that game blank earlier today and I had to get the line from some random website. I'll update it now

Temple just can hold onto the ball. Getting ugly fast.
Another interception ...
Temple has given up. Not the same team they were in the past two years.

usf is full of flaws. For a top 25 team at least. Thought it could be early season jitters, but man, they should be up 62-0. They cannot pass. And run game is average, qb running helps extend plays. They commit a ton of penalties. This team to me is not top 25 so far. That's just my opinion. They're still 4-0, and 2 blowouts on espn.
As for temple... yikes.

Exactly, USF is not showing much. Temple is just that bad. One positive in this is the USF Cheerleaders -

Temple has yet to look good this year. USF gets criticized but they've TCB'd the last two weeks.

ECU at UConn (11, ESPNU, uconn by 4.5)


The big blemish is that crazy low score & loss for Tulsa. Are they being Blankenshipped again? Big statement from UCF, who has a chance to build a shiny record.

New Mexico figured out that Tulsa's O is rushing, not passing and they don't pass very well. So they stacked.
Tulsa will have played 2 option teams in a row prior to us, so that may make it tough. But darn we need to beat them.

ECU beats UConn 41-38. UConn missed a 33 yard FG, apparently as time expired. Each team had 596 yards of offense.

ECU found some offense vs UConn, and that continued vs USF but they can't stop anyone.

UCF has looked tremendous. Did they have a lot returning? Would you'll agree that Frost will be a hot name if this continue for the entire year?

Frost has a sophomore QB running his offense and he's probably recruiting pretty well, otherwise. Time is on his side. He doesn't have to jump on the first offer and he needs to think hard before taking the Nebraska job, when and if it's ever offered to him. I'd take the jobs at Texas A&M and Tennessee before I take the Nebraska job. I'm not sure the Nebraska I grew up watching can ever happen again.
