So... We crushed Tulsa, Tulsa crushed Houston, and now Houston is favored over a hot, top 25 team? Wow, okay.

Was thinking the same thing. That and Tulsa only being favored by 6 over UConn.

The sec uses this type of logic to claim dominance.

Memphis scores 42(!) in the 2nd half and wins. I can't wait to never have to face Riley Ferguson again.

In the first half I thought to myself that a Memphis comeback would be a benefit to us. Id rather face them after an emotional comeback win than after a disappointing loss.

I agree about Ferguson.

BYU at ECU (6, CBSSN, BYU by 5.5)


interesting slate, as usual. Tulsa-UConn could be a sneaky fun game, Temple and their new coach need a win after last week but Army is at home, UCF-Navy should be a blast, SMU and Morris need to get back on track, and someone has to win between BYU and ECU.

There are a million adjectives I could pick for a Tulsa-UConn football game and "fun" would not cross my mind.

How in the world did Tulsa crush Houston last week, amidst the train wreck their season has been?

Short week away games, match-ups and motivating players. Speaking of which how many times over the last decade has Alabama played a short week away game. It's amazing how well prepared you can be when you play most of your games at home never on a short week and have the budget to have a dozen analyst break down other teams for you.

UCF wins. We now control our own destiny for the West. And if USF wins the east, we control our own destiny for hosting championship game.

SMU wins in overtime at Cincinnati after converting a 4th and 27 in the waning moments of regulation that led to the game-tying FG. Cincinnati's defense is baaaaad. Of course, so is FIU's, so we shouldn't count those chickens. But more than anything, this result shows me SMU is on the "beatable" list for sure.

Meanwhile ECU knocks off BYU. Man, BYU has collapsed.
