Football: Around the Belt - Nov. 22nd


Here are the game in the Belt Conference.

North Texas (0-5) at Middle Tennessee (2-3) - 3:00pm ET
The not so Mean Green are still looking for their first conference victory while the Blue Raiders will be ready to climb back to a .500 conference record.  North Texas just isn't a very good football team, that have shown some they can score points, but this will not be the week they pick-up a conference win.
The Blue Raiders defense will create points off turnovers to wrap this one up.
Prediction: Middle Tennessee

Louisiana-Monroe (2-4) at Florida International (3-2) - 7:00pm ET
The Warhawk just has not been able to make anything good happen this season, even thought they pulled the BIG upset of Troy a few weeks back, it has been a downward spiral for 'hawks.

The Golden Panthers on the other hand have been the surprise of the Belt and feature the League's top all- around threat, in T.Y Hilton, who has 27 catches for 777 yards, averaging 28.8 yards per catch.  And have something to play for, it may not be a Conference title (even if there is still a slim chance it can happen) but a chance to qualify for a Bowl game, something Panthers fans never dreamed would be possible at the beginning of the season, find themselves right in the mix's of things.  A victory move them closer becoming bowl eligible.

The Golden Panther have to much to play for to let this game get away.
Prediction: FIU


Louisiana-Lafayette (4-1) at Troy (4-1) - 7:00pm ET Watch Live
The Conference game of the week.

This game will have the most impact determining how the race for the conference title plays itself out.  The winner will be in position to win the title out right.

It seems that every year someone stumbles down the stretch and the Ragin' Cajun did just that last week against the Owls, looking nothing like a team that was previously undefeated in conference play.  Now find themselves licking their wounds heading into Troy, a place that the Trojans have pretty good success defending their home turf.

The Trojans also find themselves licking some wounds, after a fourth quarter melt down against LSU, then again LSU is still a formidable SEC opponent for most FBD teams, even in a down year.  How will it effect the psyche of the Trojans after such a disappointing letdown.

It does set-up an interesting game, two teams licking their wounds.  Who will be able to stand up above the shortfalls of the previous week?  Who wants it more?  Who will have the most fight left in them?

A lost could be a devastating blow to either team, calming the air in the sails both team possessed not too long ago.  The Cajun's, however probably have the most to lose, they where not expected to be in position, to contend for the title.
Prediction: Troy

no championship… we can still make a bowl, just need 6 wins. We have to beat FIU and we just need the other bowl bound SB teams to lose so we are favored.

ULM is over FIU 21-3 half (this is good)
Troy over ULL 17-3 (this is good too)

Yeh we need to slow down and think.  Everyone is running for the exit but we are not out of it.  We can finish 6-6 and if FIU loses today (which they are losing) they could be on the way out of eligibility.  Also I think we should be rooting on Troy from here on out for the title.  If they finish the season at 8-4 they will be a good representative for the Sun Belt.

It is a long shot for us owls but not hopeless.  A 6-6 season, even without a bowl, would be dissapointing only considering the pre-season hype.  When we consider the caliber of alot of our opponents 6-6 ain't bad.  We just need to make sure we show up for the FIU game.
