C-USA Football Roundup: Week 3

Written by Bob McCormick on 9/19/2006 06:02:00 AM

A topsy-turvy week for CUSA ...

Georgia 34 UAB 0

Georgia is #8 in the nation, and this score shows why. UAB had a tough time doing anything against this Georgia squad on the road.

East Carolina 35 Memphis 20

A surprise. ECU has been down the past couple of seasons, but multiple mistakes in the 2nd half by Memphis' offense did them in.

Southern Miss 37 NC State 17

An upset for those who aren't watching over a BCS team. Apparently NC State wasn't ready for this one. They should have been - Southern Miss is a perennial CUSA power, and it shows with this score.

Kansas State 23 Marshall 7

Another tough loss for CUSA.

South Florida 24 UCF 17

In this battle of "middle Florida", the CUSA team comes up a little short at home.

Houston 42 Grambling 22

The family and I went to this one. Grambling is a Division I-AA team. It was not as close as the score indicated (Houston had a 42-7 lead in the 3rd quarter when they started putting in the 2nd stringers). Halftime was memorable, and is worthy of a blog itself. In the meantime, you can check out a video of it here and here.

Tulsa 28 North Texas 3

Tulsa (last year's CUSA champ) does what it should against a Sunbelt conference team.

SMU 45 Sam Houston State 14

SMU also does what it should against a Division I-AA team.

Tulane 32 Mississippi State 29

Another shocker, given the pasting Tulane got last week against the Coogs (45-7). With MSU being a BCS team (SEC), I wonder how long their coach will remain employed there. Good bounce back, Tulane!

Texas 52 Rice 7

Texas takes out their frustration of being knocked out of #1 against the Owls. It doesn't get any easier for Rice next week - they go on the road against #17 Florida State.
