WKU vs Florida Atlantic What’s Going To Happen

WKU is off to play in the Conference USA Championship if it wins this and Rice beats North Texas. Either way it’s in a bowl game, but Florida Atlantic is fighting for its bowl life – it needs to win to get in.

The Owls got bombed on by Middle Tennessee in a 49-21 loss, but that was on the road – this is a totally different team in Boca Raton. It’s 1-5 on the road – that one win was down the road at FIU – and 4-1 at home.

WKU’s offense, though, will be too explosive and the three takeaways from the D will will be enough to hang on in a fun back-and-forth fight.

FAU is 5-0 when keeping teams to under 24 points and 0-6 when allowing more. WKU was keep under 24 points just three times.

Auburn vs WKU How To Watch

Venue: Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, AL
How To Watch: SEC Network
Record: Auburn (4-6), WKU (7-4)

Why WKU Will Win

The passing game is going to make this interesting.

The Hilltoppers are fourth in the nation through the air averaging 336 yards per game with a whole lot of midrange completions. Auburn has a decent pass rush, but that’s negated a bit by the style and quickness of the WKU attack.

Mississippi State has a slightly different offensive flow, but it was able to hit Auburn for 357 passing yards, Georgia was effective when it decided to throw, and Penn State’s Sean Clifford was deadly accurate.

The Tigers are 1-4 when allowing over 200 yards through the air. WKU has failed to hit 270 just once, but …

Bowl Projections

Why Auburn Will Win

The program perked up with Carnell Williams in as the interim head coach.

Things might have started with a loss to Mississippi State, but it was a good fight with the running game rolling. Last week it ran for 270 yards and the defense pitched its best game of the season in the 13-10 win over Texas A&M.

So how does AU deal with the WKU passing game? It runs and keeps on running.

Time of possession doesn’t matter to the Hilltoppers, so the Tigers should take advantage by grinding, keeping Austin Reed and that dangerous O on the sidelines, and more than anything else, getting good tackles out of the secondary to keep the short throws from becoming big plays.

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Indiana had to hang on for dear life in the 33-30 win over WKU, but it came up with the win. That was the only time the Hilltoppers dealt with a Power Five program.

Auburn can’t turn it over like it has over the last few weeks – five in the two games under Williams – and WKU takes the ball away, but the SEC running game will make up for a slew of mistakes by pounding away for 250 yards.

WKU will get its passing yards, but a few late drives won’t finish with points.

Rice vs WKU Game Preview

Why Rice Will Win

Everything is fine when the Rice passing game works.

There was a loss to Houston after bombing away for well over 300 yards, but that was the only misfire when the passing game rolls for over 275.

The running game is okay, and the defense hasn’t been bad, but everything functions better around QB TJ McMahon and whether or not he’s on. That’s big, but against WKU it’s more important to hold down good passing attacks.

Rice is second in Conference USA allowing just over 200 yards, but …

10 Best Picks Against The Spread

Why WKU Will Win

The Hilltoppers passing game is too dangerous top stop. Rice might be able to hold up in shootouts against good quarterbacks, but it’s 0-3 when allowing 249 passing yards or more.

WKU and QB Austin Reed have cranked out more than 270 yards against everyone but UAB – and won.

Everyone focuses on the offense – it’s fourth in the nation and the best in Conference USA – but the defense is showing up. It’s good on third downs and it’s the best in America at generating takeaways.  That means …

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

WKU is 6-0 when it comes up with multiple takeaways and 0-4 when it doesn’t. Rice has turned it over two or more times six times in nine games and in three of the last four.

Both passing games will have fun, but WKU will be a little sharper at home as it pulls away in the second half.

WKU vs Charlotte Game Preview

Why WKU Will Win

Are we really supposed to believe this is Charlotte now?

Can the team that still has the worst defense in America after the 56-23 win over Rice hold up against the WKU passing game?

Probably not.

Even in the win last week it allowed 218 yards and three scores through the air. WKU might have that in the first half.

The 11th-best passing attack in America hasn’t always bombed away – and the Hilltoppers are sometimes better when they don’t – but there shouldn’t be any problems. Charlotte doesn’t have any pass rush to be a bother, but …

Breaking down the CFP Top 25 rankings

Why Charlotte Will Win

The 49er offense works.

The defense might be a problem, but the D came up with one of its best performances of the season against Rice, and the O rolled for over 500 yards and might be able to do it again.

Chris Reynolds threw five touchdown passes, and he should be able to bomb away on a defense that gave up over 200 passing yards in six of the eight games. The Hilltoppers are 0-4 when allowing more than 270 yards through the air, and the 49ers average 272 yards per game.

Schedules, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

This should be a whole lot of fun.

WKU will throw for 350, Charlotte will get its own offense moving, and it’ll go to the road team thanks to three takeaways.

The 49ers didn’t turn the ball over against Rice and good things happen. Before that they gave it up three times or more in the previous four games.

The Hilltoppers have generated 18 turnovers in the last five games.

North Texas vs WKU Game Preview

Why North Texas Will Win

The running game fun might have chilled out for a game but it’s about to come back strong.

The Mean Green were rolling with 775 rushing yards over a two game stretch before stalling in last week’s 31-27 loss to UTSA. Now it’s about to hit the 200-yard mark again against a WKU defense that’s fine, but had problems in the win over UAB and the loss to USTA.

It’s this simple for North Texas, though – can it slow down the Hilltopper passing game? The D isn’t special, but it can generate a pass rush and hold on  for a few drives while the offense takes over.

For all of the fun with the WKU attack, it’s not great on third downs and doesn’t push the ball down the field enough to matter.

NFL Expert Picks, Week 8

Why WKU Will Win

The Hilltoppers aren’t bad against the run overall.

The goal is to get that passing game going early to force North Texas to start throwing and get it out of its gameplan. It can do that with a few good early drives.

To be fair, WKU leads Conference USA against the run because everyone throws against this D – and because few on the slate so far can grind – but North Texas doesn’t power up like UAB and UTSA do. It’s more about getting playmakers in space, and WKU can slow that down.

Keep the Mean Green from ripping off yards in chunks, come up with a few takeaways, and …

– Game Previews, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

These two teams have plays a whole slew of fun games this year, and this should be another one.

North Texas, though, is is 3-1 at home, 1-3 on the road, and that one win away from Denton came in the opener against UTEP.

WKU showed last week it can win even when it gets gouged by a good ground game, but it took four takeaways against UAB to get that done.

The D won’t get that many, but it’ll come up with two to help out the offense that will control things with the quick passing attack.

UAB vs WKU Game Preview

Why UAB Will Win

Steady, UAB just keeps rolling along with a passing attack that’s going to be good, will throw well into the 200 yard range, and with a ground game that can balance things out a bit.

There aren’t any big problems with turnovers – the team is 0-2 when giving it up multiple times and 4-0 when it doesn’t – and WKU’s defense doesn’t do enough to force a ton of mistakes.

On the other side, the Hilltoppers are good for at least two giveaways and UAB will happily force that to happen – the Blazers are +5 in turnover margin.

The pass defense hasn’t been destroyed. WKU will throw and keep throwing, but UAB has yet to give up more than 215 passing yards this season. That’s partly because …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 7

Why WKU Will Win

UAB hasn’t faced anyone who can really bomb away other than Georgia Southern.

WKU is going to throw it 50 times, rely on a run defense that doesn’t get gouged, and hope it all works from there.

As good as UAB is, it hasn’t faced a Power Five team, the schedule has hardly been a killer, and it’s 0-2 away from home. It has an okay pass rush, but it’s hardly dominant. The passing game is consistent, but it’s not the type that’s going keep up in a shootout.

– Game Previews, Predictions CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Can the Hilltoppers rise up at home after a strong road win over Middle Tennessee?

Can UAB prove it can get the job done away from home?

WKU will pull out a fun win with a whole lot of passing and help from the run defense that will keep the Blazers in check.

UAB has rushed for close to 600 yards over the last two weeks and for 230 yards or more in every game but the loss to Rice. WKU will give up 200 yards, but it’ll throw for 300.

WKU vs Middle Tennessee Game Preview

Why WKU Will Win

The Hilltoppers keep on winging it around.

They might not be as fun as they were in the Bailey Zappe days of last year, but they’re third in the nation in passing, the offense averages close to 500 yards per game, and Middle Tennessee will have to press to keep up.

The biggest key against Middle Tennessee is the ability to keep the mistakes to a minimum. The Hilltoppers don’t have a massive turnover problem, but as long as they’re no worse than -1 against the Blue Raiders they should be fine because …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 6

Why Middle TennesseeWill Win

The Middle Tennessee defense brings the pressure throughout.

It’s among the best in the nation in sacks, it lives in the backfield with a ton of tackles for loss, and it forces takeaways in bunches with 12 over a four game stretch before failing to come up with one in the 41-14 loss at UAB.

Even with all of that the pass defense isn’t great. However, the Blue Raider passing game can keep up – Chase Cunningham won’t have a problem hitting the 300-yard mark if this gets going.

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

Both teams are going to throw it, and WKU does it better.

Can it limit the turnovers? There will be two, but Middle Tennessee needs to force a few more. The biggest Blue Raider problem will be consistency of the pass rush – it won’t be quite as effective against the quick-hitting WKU passing game.

Expect lots of points, lots of yards, and a fun game with a good finish.

WKU vs UTSA Game Preview

Why WKU Will Win

The Hilltoppers are back on track.

The Roadrunners are struggling in the secondary. They got bombed on by Middle Tennessee, Army – yeah, Army – hit the 300-yard mark, and it starts with the lack of a steady pass rush to be a bother.

WKU might not be as potent as last season, but it’s still able to crank up the passing attack with close to 900 passing yards and nine touchdown passes over the last two weeks.

The defense has its moments, it’s not bad against the run, and …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 5

Why UTSA Will Win

UTSA has the ability to move the ball however it wants to.

It might have lost to Texas, but the win over Texas Southern was nice and the 45-30 road victory over Middle Tennessee was big.

Frank Harris and the passing game are going off, the defense held up against the run last week, and the ninth-ranked offense in the country is more than capable of keeping up with the WKU attack.

The Hilltoppers aren’t moving the ball like the 2021 version did, the pass defense isn’t a rock, and they’re good for two turnovers.

They’re not perfect, and UTSA isn’t the 2021 version either, but …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

The rematch of the Conference USA Championship – a UTSA win – won’t be quite as entertaining, but it’ll be good battle of offenses trading haymakers.

It’s just the second home game or UTSA since September 3rd, and it’s about to play at a different level.

Sort of like last week’s 34-27 loss to Troy, WKU will come up with its yards, but it won’t be able to do enough to stop the Roadrunner attack in key moments in the second half.

Troy vs WKU Game Preview

Why Troy Will Win

The Troy passing game is dominating.

It leads all Sun Belt teams and is tenth in the nation averaging 343 yards per game, rolling for 321 yards in the strong win over Marshall, the running game worked a little bit, and now it gets to go against a WKU defense that struggled in the one game it played against a team that can throw – the 33-30 loss to Indiana.

The Hilltoppers have an offense, but it’s not great at coming up with third down conversions, it doesn’t control the clock, and …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 4

Why WKU Will Win

The team is great at keeping the mistakes to a minimum.

Penalties aren’t an issue and the six turnovers were spread out over the four games.

The passing attack rocked FIU for 480 yards, but this year’s version of the attack is more balanced – the running game is avenging over five yards per pop.

For all the strong things the Troy offense is doing, it’s not great at keeping things moving, there’s no rushing attack, and the defense has a hard time getting off the field.

However …

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

WKU beat Austin Peay, Hawaii, and FIU – it’s not like it dealt with a slew of killers.

Troy wasn’t bad against Ole Miss, it had Appalachian State beat before the Hail Mary, and it got past Marshall. It’s more battle tested.

This will be a fun back-and-forth fight, but WKU will get that one extra takeaway to finally take a little bit of control.
