Underdog Pawdcast - 2018 AAC Week 1 Preview

Let’s finally talk about actual football games.

NCAA Football: Connecticut at Central Florida Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 of the American Athletic Conference begins tonight and #JoeTalk is here to break down all the matchups inside the AAC. Here are some the topics we discussed this week:

It’s only fitting that the defending national champions UCF get their season started tonight.

Tulane is a considered a sleeper by many, but we’ll see if that translates on the field against Wake Forest.

Rice barely beat Prairie View A&M. Houston should win large and is one our ATS picks this week.

Plenty of action between AAC teams and FCS opponents in Week 1

One of us thinks this is ECU’s one shot at picking up a win this season.

The SMU vs. North Texas game should see a lot of points scored.

Hawaii was impressive in their Week 0 win and that should scare Navy.

We end the show by making our predictions for which team scores the most points this week.
