American Athletic Conference Rankings and Bowl Projections: Week 2

Recommended Posts

Here is my inaugural list of the AAC ranking and blow projections:

 

Week 2 Rankings

1. #17 UCF (1-0, 0-0) - That makes it 23 regular season wins in a row with the Knights after their 62-0 stomping of FAMU. The UCF defense gave up only 96 yards of total offense and appear to have suitable options as they settle in on a quarterback for the season. Up next: at Florida Atlantic (0-1)

2. Cincinnati (1-0, 0-0) - The Bearcat defense picked up where it left off last season in allowing only 218 yards of total offense in their 24-14 win at home against UCLA. Cincinnati appears to be the best challenger to UCF in the Eastern Division and can shake up the college football world with a win next week. Up next: at #5 Ohio State (1-0)

3. Memphis (1-0, 0-0) - The Tiger defense held the Ole Miss to 173 yards of total offense and held on for a 15-10 win against the Rebels. Memphis dominated for most of the game and only allowed Ole Miss two offensive snaps in the final 11:48 of the game.

4. Houston (0-1, 0-0) - The Cougars gave up 696 yards of total offense in their 49-31 loss at #4 Oklahoma. Houston remains the Western Division favorite but if the defense cannot improve expect to see Memphis or Navy in the AAC title game. Up next: Prairie View A&M (1-0)

5. Temple (1-0, 0-0) - Anthony Russo threw for 409 yards and 4 touchdowns as the Owls dominated Bucknell 56-12. Up next: Maryland (1-0)

6. Navy (1-0, 0-0) - The Midshipmen rushed for 428 yards and Nelson Smith ran for 3 touchdowns in their 42-7 defeat of Holy Cross. Up next: East Carolina (0-1)

7. Tulane (1-0, 0-0) - The Green Wave generated 545 yards of total offense, 350 on the ground, and dominated FIU 42-14 in their opener. Tulane now heads to Auburn with a chance to raise the conference profile. Up next: #16 Auburn (0-1)

8. SMU (1-0, 0-0) - Xavier Jones rushed for 3 touchdowns - two in the second half - to help the Ponies rally past Arkansas State 37-30. Up next: North Texas (1-0)

9. East Carolina (0-1, 0-0) - The Pirates gave up 505 yards of total offense in their 34-6 drubbing at North Carolina State. Mistakes cost ECU early as the fumbled inside the NC State 10 yard line, missed a field goal and threw an interception all withing the first 20 minutes of the game. Up next: Gardner-Webb (0-1)

10.  Tulsa (0-1, 0-0) - The Golden Hurricane offense could only muster 80 yards of total offense in their 28-7 loss at #18 Michigan State. The offense was in self destruct mode early as it gave up a defensive touchdown and safety. Up next: at San Jose State (1-0)

11. UConn (1-0, 0-0) - The Huskies won their first game of their last season in the AAC by holding off FCS Wagner 24-21. The Huskies, who had the statistically worst defense in the history of college football last season, held the Seahawks to only 185 yards of total offense, and will look to break their 17 game losing streak to FBS teams against Illinois next week. Up next: Illinois (1-0)

12. South Florida (0-1, 0-0) - The Bulls were embarrassed at home in their 49-0 loss to #19 Wisconsin and didn't cross midfield until there was 5:15 left in the game. Charlie Strong is officially on the hot seat. Up next: at Georgia Tech (0-1)

Welp...nowhere to go but up!  I think we're better than UConn & UCU, but till we wash off SOME of the stench of this loss, we deserve the basement.

We are better than Tulsa and your comment about Navy in a title game is laughable...

Shock and Denial are just phases of grief. Don’t worry we’re all working through together

No disrepect meant, but any projections after 1 week of football are kind of ridiculous.

Since there is a post on this however, we should at least be one spot ahead of Uconn.  Despite our terrible start, we still have a much more talented roster than them.

But are we better coached?

Is our roster really that much more talented?  At a few positions maybe. Let's see them actually do something on the field.

Maybe there really is not as much talent on the field as we hope there would be.
