Tulsa vs Old Dominion Myrtle Beach Bowl Preview

6-6 teams that had to win out to get to a bowl game tend to try harder.

There’s no lack of fight in a Tulsa squad that came this close to knocking Cincinnati out of the College Football Playoff picture, and then won its last three games to get here.

There’s nothing fancy about what the Golden Hurricane like to do. They want to run if possible, hit a few deep shots down the field to take a few chances, and then hope for the defense to take the ball away to make up for all the turnovers.

Tulsa has enough offensive firepower and balance to keep up any pace, but the attack was among the worst in the nation at turning the ball over. However, Old Dominion made almost as many mistakes.

This is a fun Monarch team that roared through the second half of the season with five straight wins after a 1-6 start to make this a wonderful first run – after not being able to play in 2020 – under head coach Ricky Rahne.

Turnovers are a big, big problem for Old Dominion – more on that later – but the downfield passing game is great, the special teams came up with a whole lot of big plays, and now the team is playing with house money.

Old Dominion vs Charlotte Game Preview


Why Charlotte Will Win

Can the 49ers actually close the deal?

They’ve been on the cusp of bowl eligibility for the last few weeks, but they’ve lost four of their las five games even though the offense is working.

The passing attack has hit 245 yards or more in four of the last five games, there’s just enough of a running game to control the clock, and considering the problems with consistency, forcing takeaways would be a big deal.

For all of the good things Old Dominion is doing, it has a turnover problem with two or more in seven straight games before last week’s win over Middle Tennessee – which, strangely enough, came against the nation’s leading defense in takeaways.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why Old Dominion Will Win

Old Dominion has been red hot.

It was a lost season with 1-6 start, but that’s okay. The program didn’t play in 2020, it was going to take a while to get everything going, and then things started to cluck.

The passing game was good, there was a nice balance, and from out of nowhere came a four-game winning streak to get in a position to make this a special season.

The defense has been great against the run, and …

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

Charlotte’s defense can’t stop the run.

The winner of this goes bowling. At home, Old Dominion will complete the phenomenal turnaround to its season by running the ball without a problem against the porous Charlotte defensive front.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Old Dominion vs Middle Tennessee Game Preview


Why Old Dominion Will Win

Who’s the hottest team in Conference USA?

It’s WKU and UTSA, but all of a sudden, Old Dominion has become a player with three straight wins with a stunner over Florida Atlantic. Now the team can get bowl eligible with wins over Middle Tennessee this week and Charlotte to close.

What is it doing right? The passing game has improved, the defense has been solid, and to be obvious, the schedule has been easier. FAU was a great win, but all six of the losses were supposed to happen.

Middle Tennessee kicked its own offense back in against a miserable FIU team, but the O is struggling to get to 300 yards on a consistent basis. However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Middle Tennessee Will Win

After taking a week off in the blowout loss to WKU, the defense cranked up the turnover train again.

The best in the nation in takeaways, the D forced four FIU turnovers last week and came up with 21 in the the last six games – and that’s without coming up with any against WKU.

Old Dominion is doing a whole lot of things right, but it also turns the ball over on a consistent basis with two or more in each of the last seven games. It’s going to give it up at least twice in this and …

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

Middle Tennessee QB Nicholas Vattiato appears to have settled in. In place of injured starter Chase Cunningham, Vattiato completed 20-of-24 passes for 147 yards and two scores against FIU – and with no picks.

He gave up five interceptions in the loss to WKU, but Old Dominion doesn’t take the ball away. As long as the Blue Raider running game can work a wee bit against the solid Monarch defensive front, and as long as there aren’t any forced throws, the D should be able to take care of the rest to get the team bowl eligible.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Florida Atlantic vs Old Dominion Game Preview


Why Florida Atlantic Will Win

The Owls can get bowl eligible with a win, but there’s more to the season than that. They need a Marshall loss after losing last week, but if they win this and beat WKU next week, the Conference USA East race gets really, really interesting.

The defense has been among the best in the conference, it has a way of coming up big when it has to, and it’ll lock down on the downfield passing game – Old Dominion doesn’t really have one.

The Florida Atlantic ground game has been great, the offense has been balanced, and overall it’s strong enough on third downs to maintain control of the game.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Old Dominion Will Win

The Monarchs are on a two-game winning streak and now want to make a huge statement.

The running game has been terrific at times – rolling for over 200 yards in two of the last four games – to do a nice job of controlling games and converting on third downs.

Florida Atlantic’s defense might be great, but there isn’t enough of a pass rush to matter, the offensive line isn’t great in pass protection, and it’s a fast attack – it doesn’t control the clock.

The Owls aren’t going to come out and hang 50 on the board. The ODU defense should be just enough to at least keep this close.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 10

What’s Going To Happen

Just how good is Old Dominion?

It was able to push Marshall and UTEP, and it’s been more than competitive enough to give Florida Atlantic a fight.

The Owls have been a wee bit inconsistent, and they’ve mostly been beating the mediocre to sad teams on the slate. This should be close, entertaining, and it’ll come down to the final drive.

Florida Atlantic takes the ball away, and Old Dominion doesn’t.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Old Dominion vs FIU Game Preview


Why Old Dominion Will Win

The Monarchs are overcoming issues with enough takeaways to get by.

The defense has been good enough to keep the team in games – there was close loss after close loss before finally getting over the hump with a win over Louisiana Tech.

The run defense has been outstanding, and it should be able to stuff FIU to a dead stop. The Golden Panther offense has failed to hit 300 yards in each of the last two games as the season keeps getting worse.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 10

Why FIU Will Win

FIU has to overcome its problems with lots and lots of takeaways.

Old Dominion has turned the ball over two or more times in five straight games and has yet to win the turnover margin. There’s a whole lot going right as the team is starting to play better, but it all goes away if it makes a slew of mistakes.

FIU doesn’t generate turnovers with just four takeaways, but the defense can get behind the line and there are just enough stops against the mediocre attacks to potentially be okay.

The passing game will push the ball down the field, Old Dominion has no downfield attack, and the hope has to be for the O to be more explosive.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

Can Old Dominion make it two in a row? It’s playing a team its own size without the defensive toughness to hold up. More importantly in this, FIU doesn’t take the ball away enough to matter.

It’ll be close, it’ll be entertaining, and it’ll come down to Old Dominion being better than third downs and in the final moments.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Louisiana Tech vs Old Dominion Game Preview


Why Louisiana Tech Will Win

The passing game is a whole lot of fun.

It has to bomb away to keep up, and it didn’t do much against UTEP a few weeks ago, but it got to well over 300 yards in two of the last three games and three of the last five.

Old Dominion is good at keeping scores low – for the most part – and staying in range, but it doesn’t have a consistent downfield passing game and turns the ball over way too often. It hasn’t been great against the decent passing games, giving up close to 400 yards two weeks ago to the WKU air show and close to 300 yards to Marshall – Louisiana Tech will get to 300 yards, but …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

Why Old Dominion Will Win

Louisiana Tech doesn’t have enough of a pass rush to bother the Old Dominion backfield with just two sacks in the last three games and ten on the year.

Old Dominion has enough of a running game to potentially slow things down, and if the passing game can be a balance and not force anything, it should dominate the time of possession battle.

It has GOT to stop with the giveaways. The Monarchs have turned it over two or more times in each of the last four games and ten times during the stretch, but …

College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

Louisiana Tech has turned it over eight times in the last three and is hit-or-miss on takeaways.

If the Bulldogs can force the four turnovers – or close to it – like they did against UTEP, they win. The can win with three takeaways. Anything less than that, and Old Dominion gets the first win over an FBS team in the Ricky Rahne era.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

WKU vs Old Dominion Game Preview


Why WKU Will Win

Enough is enough.

WKU fixed the offense that was so mediocre last year, Bailey Zappe has been a blast of a quarterback who’s doing exactly what he was supposed to do coming over from Houston Baptist, and …

0-4 against FBS teams. The O has worked, but the team keeps losing shootout loss after shootout loss. There’s a reason, though – at Army, Indiana, Michigan State, UTSA.

Now the Hilltoppers get an ODU team with a passing game doesn’t push the ball down the field, hasn’t been great against the teams that can throw – but it’s been fine overall – and all of Zappe’s production should be too much for the Monarchs to overcome.

Week 7 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Old Dominion Will Win

It’s going to be a work in progress, but there are signs that the program is getting stronger. It might be losing, but it’s competitive – don’t blow that off.

The Monarchs didn’t play last year, head coach Ricky Rahne is getting his feet wet, and there are improvements. They lost to Buffalo and on the road to UTEP and Marshall – three teams that will likely go bowling – all by a touchdown or less.

The defense has been solid against the run and has yet to give up 300 passing yards, the ground game cranked up over 200 yards in two of the last three games, and …

Week 7 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

How good has Zappe been?

He’s hit over 400 yards in four of the five games and threw for 523 yards and five scores in the loss to UTSA. He’s hitting over 70% of his passes, he has only given up three picks, and finally, it’s all going to lead to a win over an FBS team.

Why Old Dominion Will Win

Didn’t you used to be Marshall?

The Thundering Herd looked like they were back on track with a 2-0 start by a combined score of 93-17, but the turnovers, the turnovers, the turnovers.

The weren’t an excuse for the loss to Appalachian State – there weren’t any – but the Herd gave up three in each of the first three games and last week totally melted won with six in an inexcusable loss to Middle Tennessee.

Old Dominion hasn’t been bad – it suffered close losses to Buffalo and UTEP over the last two weeks – helped by a strong performance from the secondary. But …

Week 6 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Marshall Will Win

The Old Dominion defense isn’t taking the ball away. It has yet to come up with an interception, and Marshall could desperately use the break.

The turnovers have been everything to the season so far, but if it weren’t for them, things would be going okay. The offense is moving the ball, the pass rush is dominant, and the pieces are there to roll through a still-emerging Monarch team.

But …

Week 6 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

How much do you trust Marshall to not screw this all up?

Old Dominion’s defense isn’t strong enough to hold up even if it does come up with a slew of takeaways. It might need six like Middle Tennessee was able to get last week, and that’s not happening.

Marshall will give it up twice, and that will be good enough to get by.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Old Dominion vs UTEP Game Preview


Why Old Dominion Will Win

The Monarchs aren’t bad.

They might be 1-3, but there’s no shame in losing to Wake Forest or Liberty for a program that’s just getting up and going again, but pushing Buffalo in a 35-34 loss is a nice step.

The ODU running game has been great – the young combination of Elijah Davis and Jon-Luke Peaker are averaging over six yards per carry – and the offense is showing the potential to be dangerous with more time logged in.

UTEP isn’t going crank up the O and put this away easily. It’s bad on third downs and turned it over ten times in just four games.

Week 5 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why UTEP Will Win

So what are the Miners doing to get to 3-1? The running game was great in the first two games, the passing attack was solid over the last two, and there’s real, live offensive production – that’s not a given for the program over the years.

It’s the other side that’s leading the way to wins.

The Miners are hardly a brick wall, but they’re holding up reasonably well – allowing under 350 yards in three of the four games, all the wins – and they’re dominating on third downs. Teams are only converting 19% of their third down chances.

Week 5 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Can Old Dominion QB DJ Mack do enough with the passing game if UTEP continues to bring a strong run D?

The ground game might work. The Monarch offensive line is strong in pass protection for an attack that controls the clock for long stretches. Which team will turn the ball over less?

The Monarch defensive line will get in the backfield. UTEP’s won’t.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Buffalo vs Old Dominion Game Preview


Why Buffalo Will Win

The Buffalo offense keeps things moving.

Old Dominion’s defense hasn’t been all that bad so far – considering it had to deal with Wake Forest and Liberty – but it hasn’t been able to get off the field. The third down stops aren’t there, and that’s where UB should be able to shine behind an O line that’s fantastic at keeping everyone clean.

Even with games against Nebraska and Coastal Carolina to deal with, the Bulls have yet to allow a sack and the ground game hasn’t been bad.

Old Dominion is struggling with its passing efficiency – the downfield plays aren’t there – but …

Week 4 College Football Expert Picks

Why Old Dominion Will Win

Again, at least statistically, the ODU defense hasn’t been all that bad.
UB might not allow sacks, but the Monarchs should be able to bring a little bit of pressure and should hurry things along – the Bulls aren’t getting big things happening down the field.

For all of the good things Buffalo has done so far, it’s not taking the ball away. Old Dominion doesn’t have giveaway problems – it has to be +2 to get pull this off at home.

Week 4 College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Old Dominion hasn’t played anyone its own size yet. The win over Hampton wasn’t a problem, but Buffalo will be a good test to see just how far the program has to go.

Buffalo will grind it out with the rushing attack and try to play around throwing against the ODU secondary that’s playing well. It won’t be a thing of beauty, but the MAC side will take it.
