I hope Troy beats WKU…the SunBelt doesn't need anymore press about losing to a not full-fledged 1-A (FBS) division team.

Well Troy will likely win now…

Just 3:43 to go and Troy now has the ball…

Good point about losses to non 1-A teams BTU remember we were there before and that win over MTSU was brilliant!!!    :D

I'd like to see Troy lose one it's supposed to win, so they know they are human.

Troy won 21-17 but WKU won all the stats EXCEPT Turnover Ratio - WKU threw 2 INTs and lost 1 fumble compared with Troy's 1 INT thrown.  WKU lost the turnover battle thereby losing the game.  But all other stats WKU prevailed except the scoreboard.

Troy is still seated atop our conference with a nice-looking 7-3 overall record.  If MTSU can't beat them then it's up to FAU to dethrone them.

Honestly, I really don't know the chances of either MTSU or FAU defeating the Trojans at their house.

But ANY GIVEN SATURDAY!

GO OWLS!!! Beat Florida, too!    ;)

Troy's remaining schedule:
MT
FAU

FAU's remaining schedule:
at UF
at FIU
at Troy

Troy has about 10 days to prepare for both of their final games, which are at home. They are in an ideal situation. Even if MT beats them, we must beat Troy to get to a bowl game. As long as we beat FIU the Troy game will decide who goes to New Orleans, even if Troy loses to MT.

MT lost to ULL today which eliminates them from contention.

BUT with extra preparation also can cause a team to lose their timing as can be seen from our ULL game after the bye week.  Tonight (thank goodness) it wasnt an issue so much against ASU.  The 3rd quarter was the only ugly one for FAU.

But Sitting out on a bye week can affect Timing which can cause at least the 1st quarter or 2 to play out badly for the "extra-prepared" team.

The extra time has it's pros and cons.  Big layoffs can definately hurt a team….ask the Colorado Rockies.  Troy has been on a pretty good roll so far this year, sometimes you can lose something during time off.

Anyway, I just hope we get out of the UF game healthy and beat FIU so that Troy game is for the title.  At that point, how we have made these games hard on ourselves and how Troy has dominated most SB teams doesn't really matter.  It'll be about one game and anything can happen.  Should be fun…hope everything else plays out as planned.

Or of course we could just go beat UF…having that win on our resume could be enough to get us a postseason bid.   ;)

Omar was hurt (ribs, pulled muscle or something?) and the backup QB and offense went very conservative.

WKU played its heart out on Homecoming before a packed house with the first I-A school to visit.

Troy loves to play down and does it very well. But it also plays up and gets up for the big games it must win.

The Sunbelt finale should be a great one. 'Hope to see lots of Owls there. And if you need any Troy info or help, let me know.

Not only was it great to hear MTSU got beat but the second coming in their Freshman QB Dasher was apparently pulled for Craddock sometime in the game.  BYE BYE Blue Raiders  ;D

GO OWLS!
