The C-U-S-A-P-O-D is back and we have a real, live football game to talk about! We also preview each week one match up and give some overdue thoughts on each team in the West.

  • We mercilessly roast Rice after their awful showing against Stanford on ESPN last night (0:45)
  • How have our expectations for Rice changed following the blow out loss to Stanford? (5:00)
  • The Butch Davis era starts at FIU with an in-state match up against UCF (7:30)
  • Why does EMU play C-USA schools so often? Anyways, Charlotte will try to create a path to bowl eligibility at the Factory this week (10:45)
  • All eyes will be on C-USA for Lane Kiffin’s debut at FAU. Can the Owls take down Navy? (13:05)
  • Could we see multiple quarterbacks for ODU as they take on Albany? (19:15)
  • Is Miami (OH) a make-or-break game for Doc Holliday and the Thundering Herd? (21:40)
  • Can EKU pose a threat to WKU as the Tops break in a new head coach? (25:00)
  • MTSU gets Vanderbilt at home to start the season. Can their defense make enough stops to claim a P5 victory? (26:30)
  • #TheReturn is nearly here as UAB hosts Alabama A&M. How many wins is a fair amount for the Blazers this season? (29:25)
  • UTEP has no hope against Oklahoma this week... right? (34:31)
  • Southern Miss has an opportunity to make it two straight wins against SEC competition with Kentucky coming to down (36:40)
  • Will Mason Fine shut down any talks of losing his starting QB spot against Lamar? (41:50)
  • La Tech should have an easy tune up game against Northwestern State (46:45)
  • Is UTSA vs UH the C-USA game of the week? We’re not sure, but it’ll probably be the most fun to watch (52:15)
