Army not looking so good so far, so I'm feeling a lot better that Michigan will be able to get a lead and control the game against them. Rice is probably better than they were last year, but they'd be fortunate to finish in the middle of the CUSA standings and similarly had an early lead on Houston last year.

If it's a TV competition, UT doesn't have much to go on.
Ha!  You might wanna double-check your facts.  From the B1G, last year only Michigan-Ohio State beat out the top-ranked Texas showing.  Did you suddenly become a Michigan or Ohio State fan while I wasn't watching? :86:

Not sure what you mean by blacked out. You later clarified as not on television. But I'm confused. Michigan is obviously on television tomorrow.

Not on my TV. *shrug*

I first saw Bevo TV last fall when I went to RRS, so I know it exists.

I see ads for the BTN.  But it's not on my TV.  I guess it's on in yankee states?  I really wouldn't know.

Say what you want about teams playing their smaller instate schools for revenue, but I guarantee Howard won't look as bad as Tulsa does.

Not hoping for Tulsa to win either, but I'm extremely happy to see them stop that BS 4th down play.

Although, I may be hoping for UMass to win.

Staying late at work to avoid coming in through the weekend, but I'm following Wisconsin and MSU through box scores.

For UW, Coan has an efficient stat line. For those watching at home, is the jump as obvious as you'd expect given these numbers? The run game seems in good shape at 5YPC and Taylor at 5.7. I take it the offensive line is as expected. And for the defense, it's hard to argue against these yardage totals. Looks like a nice start towards putting last year behind them.

For MSU, last year's dichotomy is coming through on this box score. Lewerke is under 5 YPA and the team is only averaging 3 YPC on the ground. There's a good chance they'll hold their opponent under 100 to 120 yards, though, which is a good step to meeting preseason expectations on D.

Michigan State's field continues to look spectacular on TV under the lights.  Perfect lighting.
