The other big game this week is Georgia and Tennessee. Neither team is as good as they've been in the past and both teams enter the game with one SEC loss. The loser of this game can probably kiss their chances of playing in the SEC Championship goodbye, even though there are no undefeated teams left in the East. The rumors of Tennessee's defense have been greatly exaggerated. They don't have one. Georgia should win this one.
Week six of Sun Belt action features a pair of intriguing non-conference match-ups, as well as a set of great conference games.
In non-conference play, the Big East's nascent superpower, South Florida, travels to take on the best Sun Belt team in Florida, Florida Atlantic. The 3-2 Owls aren't likely to top the Bulls, but they could keep it interesting for a while if Jim Leavitt's squad comes in overly cocky with their newfound Top 10 ranking.
There is another Sun Belt school is hosting a conference leader as Virginia travels to Middle Tennessee State. The 4-1 Cavs have been hot since getting destroyed at Wyoming and MTSU is coming off it's first win of the season, defeating
FIU last week. One never knows what to expect out of UVA, but they should be able to handle the Blue Raiders convincingly.
In conference play, the struggling Mean Green of North Texas travel to Louisiana-Monroe in a battle to see who can be first to win a game this season. Florida International's bad start is likely to continue as Omar Hougebook and Troy come to town. Look for the Trojans to win this win handily.
In the final Sun Belt showdown of the week, Arkansas State returns to action a week after completing one of the greatest comebacks in NCAA history. This week the [Mascot Redacted]s are taking on 0-4 Louisiana-Lafayette. A-State should take this game, as they appear to be one of the best teams in the Sun Belt, but their inconsistent history says that an upset by the Ragin' Cajuns is not out of the question.
Utah State @ #16 Hawaii
Not even 5 interceptions could deter Colt Brennan and Hawaii from winning their second straight conference game. The #16 Warriors bring in Utah State this week, a team that’s only scored six offensive touchdowns, but has 18 touchdowns on defense. Still, the Aggies are letting up over 400 offensive yards a game, and at 0-5, Utah State is in desperate need of a win to reverse course. After Brennan scorches them for 5 touchdowns in the first half, Utah State will be on the way to 0-6.
