The schedule this week features a lot of good teams, and a lot of bad teams. There is a mix of FCS teams, ranked teams and then just eh.. teams. The game that has the most implications (and is winnable) is when South Florida heads to Reno to take on Nevada. This game can set the stage for a possible BCS run for Nevada.


Shutdown Fullback on Week 1!

However, in saying that so can Air Force if they can upend Michigan at the Big House. This is less likely just because Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson will be able to make plays with his feet and (sometimes) with his arm, causing defensive issues.

Wyoming taking on Toledo and what we do know is that they gave Arizona all they can handle in a 24-17 loss in overtime. They look to be a balanced team on offense, but their defense looks shaky as they gave up 387 passing yards.

Even with all the hope and might that I am willing over to help Fresno State win against Oregon, it is highly unlikely that it will happen. Oregon's offense is just amazing with De'Anthony Thomas is averaging a touchdown once every seven carries in his short career. Even though Oregon gave up over 30 points to Arkansas State, their defense is possibly the best they have ever had.

New Mexico vs. Texas will be on the Longhorn Network, so unless AT&&'s uVerse is available to you, or you some how get Verizon Fios you can see the game. Texas will be too much, but this will be a good measuring stick for the Lobos to see if they can avoid getting just obliterated against a good opponent.

San Diego State taking on Army could be interesting since the Black Knights utilize the triple option running attack and will challenge the Aztecs defense. Also we will see Long use his 'chart' which back fired against him against Washington.

The rest are FCS games and should easily be won.
