A small slate of games still packs a good punch. UCF and Memphis meet for the first time since the thriller in the AAC Championship Game last year. You can bet that Memphis had this game circled ever since the loss, and hopefully were in store for a ton of points. The other three games may not be as anticipated, but there will still be a ton of points produced.
Game of the Week
#10 UCF (-4) at Memphis— Saturday, October 13th 2:30pm CT
Ever since the 2017 AAC Championship Game concluded, fans have been waiting to see how UCF and Memphis would be this season. Many were hoping that the rematch would garner the same hype as last year. So far, UCF has done their job. Memphis has slipped twice already this season and has killed some of the hype in the process. Still, the Tigers have shown enough glimpses into what they are capable of offensively. We want to believe that it will come down to which defense will make a stop, but it will probably be which offenses slips first.
Michael: UCF 48 Memphis 24
Joe B: UCF 56 Memphis 42
Eric: UCF 45 Memphis 35
Joe S: Memphis 45 UCF 42
Rest of the AAC
#23 USF (-7.5) at Tulsa— Friday, October 12th 6:00pm CT
Tulsa may be in for a letdown after keeping things close against Houston. USF just put up 58 points against UMass behind Jordan Cronkrite’s 302 yards rushing. The Golden Hurricane have yet to show they can stop or even hang with a high powered offense, so this one could be a blowout quickly.
Michael: USF 31 Tulsa 21
Joe B: USF 38 Tulsa 21
Eric: USF 42 Tulsa 24
Joe S: USF 35 Tulsa 21
Temple (-6) at Navy— Saturday, October 13th 2:30pm CT
This might be a game that bettors stay away from, given the nature of both teams. Temple has been playing better as of late, but can they keep that up? Navy beat Memphis, but has struggled running the ball since.
Michael: Temple 34 Navy 20
Joe B: Temple 28 Navy 24
Eric: Temple 24 Navy 21
Joe S: Temple 30 Navy 28
Houston (-16) at ECU— Saturday, October 13th 6:00pm CT
ECU reverted back to its old ways last week against Temple, giving up 49 points. Houston’s offense is light years better than Temple’s, so this could get ugly fast if the Pirates defense plays the same way.
Michael: Houston 48 ECU 21
Joe B: Houston 56 ECU 27
Eric: Houston 49 ECU 24
Joe S: Houston 45 ECU 21
