#22 West Virginia Mountaineers – 13 @ Marshall Thundering Herd
Friday, September 10th
7:00 ET, Joan C. Edwards Stadium, Huntington, WV
Marshall got off to a rough start to their season as the sacrificial lamb to an Ohio State team that will contend for a national title in 2010. The Thundering Herd managed less than 200 total yards of offense against the Buckeyes and their only score was a blocked field goal return for a touchdown in the first quarter. Marshall couldn’t move the ball through the air (155 yards on 35 passing attempts) or on the ground (44 yards on 21 carries). Marshall doesn’t catch a break either, battling tough in-state rival West Virginia. Last week, QB Geno Smith and the Mountaineers looked dominant in their 31-0 win against FBS Coastal Carolina. Smith completed 20 of 27 passes for 216 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in his first season as a starter. Superstar RB Noel Devine also put together a nice game, carrying the ball 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown. Expect West Virginia to make short work of Marshall behind the legs of Devine on Friday.
Prediction: West Virginia 34 Marshall 10
UTEP Miners +20 @ Houston Cougars
Thursday, September 9th
10:15 ET, Robertson Stadium , Houston, TX
Heisman Trophy candidate QB Case Keenum got off to a fast start this college football betting season against lowly Texas State. Keenum completed 77% of his passes for 274 yards and five touchdowns against two interceptions in his quest to become the NCAA’s all-time leading passer. Keenum and back-up QB Cotton Turner did a good job in getting everybody involved as 10 Cougars caught a pass over the course of the game. UTEP received much more of a challenge against their FBS cupcake Arkansas-Pine Bluff. In their game, the Miners only had a four point lead at half, but pushed the game out of reach in the third quarter thanks to the rushing combination of Joe Banyard and Vernon Frazier. For the game, the two running backs combined to carry the ball 25 times for 183 yards and four touchdowns. Although Houston should certainly come out of this game with a victory, expect the Miners to keep it within the number.
Prediction: Houston 38 – UTEP 28
