Either the USF game just got easier or nothing happened because the Wave has been beating the Wave mostly.

Tulsa rushed for 217 yards against USF and led 24-10 heading into the 4th quarter. Their QB was 6 of 21 for 79 yards and they still should/could have won.

So help me, if we get down by one TD to USF in the first half and freak out like against Cincinnati and abandon the run and start playing pro-style pocket passing with McMillan, I'm calling for Fritz to be fired after the game.

Fair.

NB to be compliant with the rules you would need to word it differently.

Lines FINALLY added. Anyone want to talk about UCF only favored by 4.5?!?

Already went up (at least I saw higher on TV a bit ago), but yeah, that's way too low. I'd probably take UCF -14 and be happy to get it that low.

You may still win your bet but at end of 1st qtr: UM 17 - UCF 7


That's why the oddsmakers do this for a living.

PS, I'm rooting for UCF for obvious reasons.

30-14. Memphis has scored on all 5 of their possessions.

Good for the Knights. As bizarre as it sounds, Tulane can still do lots of damage now in the West as Temple beat Navy. Let's make it happen starting next week against SMU.

This really is the year of AAC East. Three undefeated ranked teams going into the third week of October.

My daughter is with us at Epcot; she was refreshing her phone every 45 seconds to see the UCF score (she is a freshman there). I have never seen her ever as excited and anxious about a sports score.

I will suggest it to her; however, she has never been very interested in sports until this. She rolls her eyes when I watch players hit into the pine straw I traversed on number 13 in Amen Corner. When my son puts on NFL pregame shows at 7:15 Sunday mornings and bemoans the length of our priest's homiiies, she doesn't respond. I don't think she ever had a reason to get it until now. She has already told me she wants to go to a big bowl game if they make it; she is hoping for Rose Bowl (might as well shoot high, even though it is unlikely), but would settle for any of them.

Last Fall I got a hint that this would happen; she began to watch a game and asked me to explain the basics- downs, yards to go, penalties, etc. Who knows, might make a sports fan out of her!

AO— the rose bowl literally isn’t possible this year. UCF could either play in the playoff, Fiesta, or Peach Otherwise a smaller bowl

I thought so, was not sure with the way the playoff and choices go. Just commenting that it was her first choice. Atlanta isn't too far; even my wife would enjoy a trip there, as long as we are not too far from Lenox Square (I know about the Georgia Mall, but the restaurants near there are ones she likes)
