Football: Around the Belt - Nov. 8th
Louisiana-Monroe (2-3) at Middle Tennessee (1-3) - 3:30pm ET
This game has no implications on how the conference title will be decided and will feature to struggling team.
The Blue Raiders will again rely on their defense to keep them in this game.
The Warhawks is a team finding new life, just a little too late and should be able to take care of the Blue Raiders and move to .500 mark in conference play.
Western Kentucky at Troy (4-1) - 3:30pm ET - ESPN Game Plan & ESPN360.com
While this is not a conference game, the Hilltoppers find themselves facing a team looking to bounce back after the Trojans deflating lost to the Warhawks last week. Talk about wrong place, wrong time for the Hilltoppers. They will find themselves hopping back home with a not so pleasant afternoon in Troy.
UTEP at Louisiana-Lafayette (4-0) - 7:00pm ET - ESPN Game Plan & ESPN360.com
The Conference leaders play a pretty good 'Tep team and this should turn out to be a pretty good game.
Right now the Cajuns are hitting on all cylinders and with Desormeaux & Fenroy providing the horsepower on offense, they shoud keep their perfect home record intact.
Arkansas State (2-1) at FIU (2-2) - 7:00pm ET
This is the only game in conference play that does have an impact on how the title might take shape, at least if the Red Wolves win, if not, then it more then probably ends the red Wolves chances.
Florida International on the other hand looks to right the ship. They started out hot with two straight conference wins and have played themselves out of contention with two straight losses. Both losses however have come at the hands of the Cajuns of Louisiana & the Trojans of Troy, the two toughest teams in conference.
The Red Wolves usually don't play well on the road, but will have to find a way to do so if they want to continue their title quest.
This will be a tight game and will favor the home team.
Prediction: Florida International
