Given all of the bye weeks going on, Saturday's Sun Belt Conference action will be on the light side of the spectrum.
Here's the three game lineup for Week eight, October 23rd. Teams in bold are the desired winners for the Owls.
Florida Atlantic (1-4) vs Arkansas State (2-5) @ 1:00 p.m. - Sun Belt Network (CSS 32 Local)
Two teams will battle it out for the right to continue towards the post season. The question to beg: Who will be on the losing end of this tussle? Not the Owls. FAU conjures up enough needed production offensively to thwart the Red Wolves - on the ground.

Louisiana Monroe (3-3) vs Middle Tennessee (2-4) @ 4:30 p.m. - ESPN3.com
The Blue Raiders have had a rough go of it for the first half of the season. When star QB Dwight Dasher got involved with an old card shark, things quickly went from conference favorite, and potential upset opponent, to "maintain face." Up until now, they haven't.
But Dasher is back, and they should cash in on Saturday against the Warhawks while picking up their second win in league play and sparking some competition at the top.
Dasher aims to make most of 2nd chance
Western Kentucky (0-6) vs Louisiana (2-4) @ 5:00 p.m. - UL Pay Per View
Can the Toppers shake a dreaded 26 game losing streak? Possibly. The line is just six points, proving that despite home field advantage, UL is not a clear favorite. In Bowling Green, the game would be even. And that is just how we see it. Keep a watchful eye on this one in the fourth.
