Tulane 13, #8 Auburn 38
Ouch. Tulane was overmatched in this contest.

East Carolina 38, Southern Methodist 21
ECU is sneaking up on people - ask SMU.

Rice 40, UCF 29
Rice is sneaking up on people also, although defending East Divsion champ UCF is nowhere near last year's form.

Marshall 31, UAB 24
A battle between two evenly matched (albeit poor) teams.

Houston 34, UTEP 17
The McCormick family had a previous engagement at our church's Oktoberfest, which didn't allow us to go to this one. It is the first UH home game I missed, and I regretted it as I suspected I would. UTEP is not up to last year's form, and they were not playing this in El Paso this time. The combination favored the Coogs, although they apparently struggled in the first half with play reminiscent of their previous 3 loss streak.

Virginia Tech 36, Southern Miss 6
Ouch #2. I expected a closer game than this from Southern Miss, but I guess playing this on the road was the difference.

Tulsa 35, Memphis 14
Two teams headed in opposite directions. Tulsa looks to be in good form for at least a bowl game while Memphis still misses DeAngelo Williams. Results are as expected.
