C-USA Football: Games for Week of 11-22-14

Post




Lone Star State rivals UTEP (6-4. 4-2) and Rice (6-4, 4-2) square off in Houston with a nationally-televised Friday night contest to open this week’s action. The Owls, who had a six-game winning streak snapped at then-No. 21 Marshall last week, have won the last three meetings over the Miners, who became bowl-eligible last Saturday. Rice can remain in contention for the West Division title with a victory.
 
No. 18 Marshall (10-0, 6-0), the fourth team in C-USA history to open a season with 10 consecutive victories, visits UAB (5-5, 3-3), a team one win away from bowl-eligibility for the first time in a decade. Expect big plays in this game, as UAB leads the FBS in plays of 70 yards or longer and Marshall leads in plays of 20 or longer, 30 or longer and 60 or longer.
 
WKU (5-5, 2-4) will be seeking bowl-eligibility when it hosts UTSA (3-7, 2-4) in a matchup of opposites. The Hilltoppers offense is averaging 50.2 points per game at home this season with 251 points in five games. The Roadrunners rank second in rushing defense and scoring defense, while placing third in total defense on the season.
 
Louisiana Tech (7-3, 6-0) returns from its bye week hoping to build on its current five-game winning streak when it faces Old Dominion (4-6, 2-4) for the first time. A Bulldogs victory will clinch the West Division championship for LA Tech.
 
Middle Tennessee (5-5, 4-2) returns home trying to become bowl-eligible for the third straight year on senior day as it prepares to host Florida Atlantic (3-7, 2-4).
 
North Texas (3-7, 1-5) hosts FIU (4-7, 3-4) in the Mean Green’s home finale and the Panthers final game of the 2014 season.
