Last week, the rest of the country really found out that the Arkansas Red Wolves were legit when they beat down the Golden Panthers at ASU Stadium. Now, the world is going to find out that FIU can indeed still play ball in spite of the fact that it lost to the Red Wolves, and that the Sun Belt might not be the worst conference in America this year.

We give a lot of credit to QB Wesley Carroll and WR TY Hilton for their incredible senior seasons. These two are well on their way to posting fantastic seasons and getting All Sun Belt honors, and both might find themselves playing on Sundays next season. However, we can’t forget about this Florida International defense. This unit has kept four foes in the teens this year, and though none of them are all that impressive offensively, just pulling off the feat is impressive.

Meanwhile, Troy is a shell of its old self. The Trojans just can’t get much going offensively this year thanks to all of its players that were booted off of the team at the outset of the season. QB Corey Robinson looks nothing like the man that threw for nearly 4,000 yards and 28 TDs a season ago, and as a result, the Trojans look nothing like the team that has dominated in this conference for a number of years either.

Let’s also throw into the mix that the Golden Panthers really have to have this game if they have any aspirations of going to a bowl game this year. They aren’t catching Arkansas State, which is clearly the best team in the conference, and they have already lost to Louisiana Lafayette, likely the second and final team to make it to a bowl game as of right now in the Sun Belt. FIU takes this one going away, capitalizing on last year’s big win in Alabama against the Trojans.

Week 9 NCAA Football Pick: Florida International -6.5
