Pretty meh early games on Saturday, but good stuff starts at 2:30PM and a great UGA@Bama game late.

-A lesser version of Wednesday's Sun Belt matchup


Friday Night
#17 SMU (-6.5) at Tulane 6:00 PM ESPN
#14 BYU (-3) at Houston 9:30 PM ESPN
-Pretty decent matchup of lower conferece undefeateds. I could see either game Friday being an upset.

UMass will play their first game of the season Sat afternoon against Ga Southern Sat at 4 PM EST on ESPNU. UMass decided to reverse course and play football this year on Sept 21. The Minutemen will receive $60,000 to play Georgia Southern, accounting for "roughly half of the travel expenses" incurred for the away game contest.

Ga S. rivalry game against App St this Sat was postponed due to Covid outbreak and was looking for an opponent. They had had to cancel a game with Louisiana on Oct 7 due to nineteen players out. With a bye week last week and the App St postponement would not have played anyone for a 21 day period.

First of all, I just want to say I really appreciate this post every week YJ. I literally follow it Saturdays to know that I should be watching. Reps.

Second, I Love the fact that when Lion first started making this weekly post, Cincinnati was sort of a meme joke that he would throw in for selfish reasons... now they are a top 10 team. I understand the circumstances, but still nothing but respect for them coming back without the big east/P5 to help them.

Finally, speaking of Cincy and also BYU, I would wager this is the first time two top 10 teams playing unranked/non P5 teams are both less than touchdown favorites in the same week. Cincy seems criminally low, maybe Lion can shed some light on that. BYU seems right (although I think it actually has gone up to -5.5), especially after last week against UTSA.

Ditto. YJ has mastered the formula.

It's a combination of UC's offense not progressing as they should have from last season, and Tulsa being a pretty good team. Capable of scoring points on offense, and they have a legit defensive front 7 that specializes in pressuring opposing QB's. That's how they upset UCF two weeks ago.

UC's offense is an issue. Desmond Ritter is turning the ball over at an alarming rate, and the offense in general is plagued by many of the same operational issues under Denbrock's leadership that plagued ND when he was coordinating the Irish offense. Plays taking way too long to get in, lack of creativity on early downs, lack of creativity on behind-the-chains downs, and not doing enough to set up the deep shots they take.

Lines are going to be low for UC until the offense breaks out, but they should at least continue as favorites in every game they play based on Fickell's defense.

Thanks DONTH8. I, like you, and most CFB nuts, always like looking ahead to plan Saturdays lol. I told Lion he can jump back in any time he wants :-).

I think a lot of folks have a little love for Cinci, and was thankful for Lion when he always included them. Had a cousin that played FB for them. Hated them in BBall though lol. Definitely my fav non-P5 FB team. And I'd love to see a non-P5 upset the CFP applecart one day. This could be the perfect storm for that to happen if they can get their O together. Long shot I know, but I can dream.

Lion knows a lot more than I ever will about Cinci, but I'll just add that the D looks legit. BYU is really interesting this year too. They throttled Navy and beat all but one team by 30+ this year. Houston is pretty decent though, so should be a good little Friday night game. If BYU gets past Houston, very good chances they go undefeated IMO. Another potential long-shot party crasher. Always like cheering for the INDs and little guys.

I could be totally wrong but I think BYU is really good. Like 2012 ND good.

They've been playing woefully overmatched opponents, but watching them has been like watching a throwback, smashmouth team almost. Them boys like to hit. Even their skill players on offense have been delivering punishment.

**** BYU, though.
