The AAC is expected to lose every game


Recommended Posts

Well I did not foresee this coming into bowl season, because I thought the AAC was VERY strong, but according to ESPN's matchup predictor, every team is expected to lose. There are a few games where I am calling shenanigans here. I fully expect Navy, Temple, and Memphis to take care of business vs Pitt, Toledo, and Auburn respectively with 70% chances to win. With slightly less confidence, but still confidence, (depending on which team shows up) I think Cincinnati beats San Diego St. SDSU benefited from not only going through a terrible down year in the MWC, but also the weaker side of the MWC, where their stiffest competition was Nevada. SDSU also had a very bad loss to South Alabama. I give them 60% chance to win.

Now here is where things get dicey. USF is playing so hot right now, but can that continue against a good WKU team? I think yes, and give us the next best odds to win at 58%. Call me crazy, but I also believe that Tulsa beats VT, and give them a 52% chance to win. I think the only team the American needs to worry about is UConn vs Marshall. How did THAT match up come to be? Yikes. I give UConn a lowly 38% chance to win.

And for the peach bowl, I think Houston is better than the nation gives them credit for. I sincerely think they are the #11 team in the country. And as USF showed, FSU is nothin more than the Fightin' Dalvin Cooks. I give Houston a 56% chance to win. Call me a homer, but I like the AAC's chances to come out of bowl season with a 6-1 record. What do you guys think?

I think most of the games are winnable for the AAC outside of Houston and Tulsa.. Every other matchup seems pretty even or in our favor..
