1.East Carolina (3-1)
There's so much to like about this East Carolina team on the offensive side of the ball, starting with Shane Carden at QB, who is the best quarterback nobody is talking about. Going into this week the Pirates are sixth in the nation in total offense as well as first in the AAC in scoring offense.
2. Cincinnati (2-1)
Ohio State was just too much for the Bearcats last week in Columbus. This week the Bearcats jump into conference play as they take on Memphis at Nippert.
3. Temple (3-1)
Matt Ruhele has this Owls team playing hard. Will be back in action against next week against Tulsa.
4. Memphis (2-2)
Month of October will be favorable for Tigers as they get Tulsa, Houston, and SMU. First things first is a date with rival Cincinnati on Saturday in Cincinnati.
5. South Florida (2-3)
While Bulls are still anemic on offense as well hit or miss on the defensive side of the ball, South Florida gets a reprieve as they take on an awful Tulsa team next week.
6. Central Florida (1-2)
Golden Knights get back in swing of things against Houston tonight.
7. Houston (2-2)
Cougars bounced back on September 20th with a win over UNLV in Houston. Should be a fun tilt against Central Florida tonight in Houston.
8. Tulane (1-4)
In back to back weeks the Wave have shot themselves in the foot regarding their play by making careless mistakes in all facets of football.
Sadly Benny Hill isn't around to make fun of it.
9. UCONN (1-4)
Huskies get bye week before heading to New Orleans to face Tulane.
10. Tulsa (1-3)
Although Tulsa is 1-0 in AAC play, this is a program that is dire straits.
11. SMU (0-4)
Being a Saints fan, I spent all 2012 clowning the Atlanta NFL team and their fans for scoring TWO points in a playoff game.
Maybe SMU should hire Mike Smith.
