C-USA Football: Games for Week of 10-15-16


Four conference matchups and two non-conference games comprise the six-game schedule for week seven, with all games being played on Saturday.

The action begins with the long-time rivals separated by 100 miles of highway, WKU at Middle Tennessee. Points are likely to be plenty in this matchup of high-powered offenses.
 
Charlotte plays a school from the Sunshine State for the second straight week, this time hosting FIU. The 49ers are coming off their first-ever conference victory, a dramatic triumph at Florida Atlantic. The Panthers are seeking a third straight win under interim head coach Ron Cooper.
 
Marshall returns home for its first league game in Huntington when Florida Atlantic visits. The Thundering Herd have won all three meetings since the Owls joined C-USA.
 
Fresh off its record-setting win over Southern Miss, UTSA makes the short trip to Rice, which is coming off a bye week. The Roadrunners are seeking a second straight win over the Owls.
 
The only non-conference games of the week feature Louisiana Tech looking for its third straight win when it travels to Massachusetts, the Minutemen’s third game against a C-USA opponent, and Southern Miss playing at LSU for the first time since 1994.

The Defensive Player of the Week honor went to FIU senior LB Anthony Wint, who tied a career high with 13 tackles in a victory at Charlotte.

The Special Teams Player of the Week award was given to WKU sophomore K Skyler Simcox, who scored a career-high 14 points, including the game-winning extra-point in a win at Middle Tennessee.

They are playing really bad football teams. Us, UTEP, & Charlotte.  Arguably 3 of the worst in the country.  They play La Tech this week. If they play well against them, and then they have something.

Agreed Mark, 100% agreed!

But the bottom line from OUR point of view is they acted, changed and have a 3 game win streak while WE are stuck in a 6 game losing steak (last 4 vs. BAD football teams).

"After catching 12 passes for 326 yards and five touchdowns"…that has to be a record?


Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

That reminds me of when we played that NAIA school a number of years back in basketball, Northwood maybe? They had a kid who lit us up for almost 50 that night, I'm screaming from the stands, "JUST COVER THST GUY, HES GONNA GET THE BALL!" 

How do you let a guy be THAT open all night?
