Tulsa Golden Hurricane (-7) @ East Carolina Pirates
Sunday, September 5th
2:00 ET, Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, Greenville, NC
This is clearly a case between a team that is on the rise and one that is on a freefall. The Golden Hurricane were quite possibly the best 5-7 team in the land last year, and they are still an incredibly feared by the opposition. QB GJ Kinne is a great dual threat, throwing for 2,732 yards and rushing for 399. He totaled 27 scores against just ten picks. Tulsa's problem last year was winning close games. Four of the team's seven losses came by ten points or less and all but losses to Oklahoma and East Carolina came by two TDs or less. On the contrary, the only game that was won by less than two touchdowns was the season ending game against Memphis. As for East Carolina, there are a ton of major issues. Skip Holtz has left for South Florida and QB Patrick Pinkney is gone as well. There are a number of major defensive players that have graduated as well. Bottom line: This isn't your daddy's East Carolina team. The Golden Hurricane should blow into the Carolinas and come out with a 'W'.
Prediction: Tulsa 41 – East Carolina 23
SMU Mustangs (+14) @ Texas Tech Red Raiders
Sunday, September 5th
3:30 ET, Jones AT&T Stadium, Lubbock, TX
Be very, very careful, Texas Tech. The start of the HC Tommy Tuberville era might not be a good one if the Mustangs can sneak up on the Red Raiders. The offense for T-Tech is still very much so up in the air, as Tuberville is going to be asking players that have gotten used to the Air Raid assault to run the football a bit more. That's great news for RB Byron Batch, but might not be such great news for Texas Tech backers. As far as SMU goes, we know that HC June Jones is going to ask QB Kyle Padron to throw the pigskin all over the place, just as he did when he threw for 460 yards in the Hawaii Bowl last year. The Mustangs are looking to get back on the right path towards Conference USA glory, while it seems like the Red Raiders are going backwards in a hurry. This could be a Texas-sized Lone Star State upset. Taking the two TDs on the NCAA spreads is a great idea.
Prediction: SMU 34 – Texas Tech 30
