C-USA Football: Games for Week of 10-13-18
We are at the midway point of the 2018 football season and six conference games are on Saturday’s schedule in Conference USA.
Florida Atlantic will be off, but there are still some important match-ups to take in.
Leading off Saturday’s action is UAB making its first trip to Rice since 2010. The Blazers arrive in Houston coming off an important victory at Louisiana Tech as it looks to make it four straight wins against an Owls squad that continues to show improvement under first-year coach Mike Bloomgren.
West Division rivals Southern Miss and North Texas meet in Denton. The game will feature two of the league’s most productive passers in Golden Eagles sophomore Jack Abraham and Mean Green junior Mason Fine.
Marshall will look to rebound from a tough loss to Middle Tennessee when it visits Old Dominion Saturday afternoon. Two of the conference’s top defensive lineman will be on display in Herd DE Ryan Bee and Monarchs DE Oshane Ximines.
Both teams rested from their bye weeks, WKU will make its first trip to Charlotte. These East Division rivals are two of the youngest teams in C-USA this season.
Louisiana Tech travels to UTSA looking to bounce back from a tough loss to UAB last week, while the Roadrunners are aiming for a fourth straight victory at the Alamodome.
Middle Tennessee, winners of its first two conference games is on the road for the second straight week, visiting FIU. The Panthers are coming off their bye week looking for a 2-0 start in conference action for the second time in three years. Two of the league’s leaders in TD passes square off in MT’s Brent Stockstill (10) and FIU’s James Morgan (12).
