I wouldn't touch any of the CUSA games this week with a 50 ft pole. With the exception of UCF and Tulsa, none of the teams are clearly better than the others. Here's what I scoured from data on Covers.com:
UCF @ Tulsa
This is pretty much the conference final matchup in two weeks from now. Both teams are healthy and undefeated in conference and have had two OOC losses (UCF to tOSU and Mizzou @ home, TU to Arky two weeks ago and Iowa St.). In conference TU struggled against UAB, Marshall, and Rice. UCF struggled against USM and UTEP (go figure). TU is poor in the air game and decent on the ground game on both offense and defense (compared to the rest of the NCAA). UCF is slightly the opposite, better in the air than on the ground on both sides.
Houston @ Marshall
Marshall got beat by UAB, UAB led the game the entire time despite giving up 4 turnovers. When you allow 5 yds per carry though, it makes sense. Houston, meanwhile hit a emotional low last week when their captain on defense suffered a near fatal heart injury during practice. They got blown out by Tulsa last week after it, I'm not certain how they'll play. Both teams have pass heavy offenses and poor defenses with the exception of Marshall's pass D.
SMU @ Rice
SMU's losses have been against OOC aTm, TCU, and Baylor, and in conference UCF and... Tulane. Rice's schedule has looked good in recent weeks because of a weaker schedule and playing Tulsa when TU's starting QB was injured. Rice's Defense is putrid compared to SMU despite having a much easier schedule. SMU has a poor run game, but appears average.
ECU @ Tulane
This may be the one clear cut game all week. ECU is the cream of the conference, but gets blown out outside the conference (Navy, for one). Tulane sucks, not sure if you knew that or not. ECU should blow them out. If not, I'll be one of the first to call shenanigans.
UAB @ Memphis
This is the other Toilet Bowl game this week, and both teams are probably looking at this game as a Season High. Memphis easily has one of the worst offenses in NCAA. In comparison, UAB has better looking losses and a pass game, both defenses are dreadful.
UTEP @ So. Miss
Neither of these teams should be picked to win, be it SU or ATS. On paper, USM has a average run game, but no pass game. UTEP has an average offense all around, but does not appear to be able to finish a drive. Both teams have bad run defenses and average pass defenses. USM gives up more points on average, and has put a number of Offensive players are injured or on suspension (last week anyway).
Draw what you want from this info, but for the love of pete don't make decisions based solely on this. It's just my two cents, and as I've been doing so-so on CFB and pretty good on NBA picks, so I'm not focusing on CFB as much anymore.
