Troy Trojans @ Bowling Green Falcons - Thursday September 3rd

The Sunbelt Conference's best team the Troy Trojans will show the MAC why they are the 2 time reigning champs as they roll over the Falcons.

Troy 31 Bowling Green 20

North Texas Eagles @ Ball State Cardinals

Another MAC vs SBC matchup only the Sun Belt will not be so lucky in this one. Ball State wins their season opener and UNT loses for the 22nd time in their last 25 games.

Ball State 35 UNT 28

Western Kentucky @ Tennessee

The Hilltoppers make the jump from 1-AA and won't find it easy in week one as Rocky Top is eager to get the Lane Kiffen era started.

Tennessee 52 WKU 10

Middle Tennessee @ Clemson

Blue Raider fans will represent their school on the road but unfortunately a sea of purple and orange will drown them out and the Tigers will pull away in this one.

Clemson 41 MTSU 24

Florida Atlantic @ #24 Nebraska

Nebraska fans are excited and the program is back in the top 25 as the Owls from FAU come to town. Everyone in the stadium will know who Rusty Smith is when its over, but the Cornhuskers will still win the game.

Nebraska 49 FAU 31

ULM Warhawks @ #2 Texas Longhorns

Texas is still seething about last years National Championship Bowl snub and will make it a long day for the Warhawks.

Texas 45 ULM 21

Southern Jaguars @ ULL Cajuns

The Cajuns lost the core of their skill positions players but it won't matter in this one. QB Chris Mason will get his feet wet in a home victory.

ULL 35 Southern 10

Miss Valley State @ Arkansas State

Get extra light bulbs ready for the scoreboard as the Red Wolves will score early and often in this one.

Arkansas State 63 MVSU 14
