C-USA Football roundup: Week 4

Written by Bob McCormick on 9/26/2006 09:55:00 PM

Tulsa 24, Navy 23

Tulsa pulls out this squeaker in OT by blocking Navy's extra point (up in Annapolis).

Rice 7, Florida State 55

This game looks like a leftover from the Bobby May/Ken Hatfield days. Rice should not be scheduling these kinds of games, and the results show. Fortunately, this is the hardest part of their schedule, as they now will start into C-USA.

Misssissippi State 16, UAB 10

UAB could have been the 2nd C-USA team to beat Mississippi State, but it was not to be, as MSU wins this one in Birmingham in OT.

Marshall 7, Tennessee 33

Marshall takes on the #15 ranked team in the nation, in their stadium, and the results show (particularly in the 4th quarter).

West Virginia 27, East Carolina 10

East Carolina hangs fairly well with the #4 team in the nation at home but falls apart in the 2nd half.

Texas-El Paso 13, New Mexico 26

UTEP travels north to New Mexico, but spots the Lobos a 19 point lead before getting their act together. Without spotting them the lead, this might have been a better game. Oh well ...

Tulane 7, LSU 49

Tulane's win against Mississippi State last week does not carry over to Louisiana State, as the #10 Tigers scored early and often against the Green Wave.

Arkansas State 9, SMU 55

The Mustangs have a flashback to days of yore as they paste the ASU Indians.

Oklahoma State 25, Houston 34

I took the wife & kids to this one at Robertson Stadium. It was a fun one, as a near-sellout crowd (about 25% local and travelling OSU fans) showed to see the Coogs beat the Cowboys. The game ended in the rain - certainly something we wouldn't have seen in the old Astrodome days.
