Yeah I just saw the line and it was Bye Weekend -3. Seems Vegas is giving the bye weekend home field advantage in this one.

They are a good FCS program and the Sun Belt is finally regaining Sun Belt form, playing close FCS games.

Incarnate has a solid team this year, with their losses being by 1 score, so I expect this game to be close.

You do realize they lost to D2 Texas A&M-Kingsville right? Oh and they lost that game by 9. Which, unless the rules have changed, is still two scores.

They also only lost to Nichols by one score who took USA to overtime. Transitive property doesn't work in football. I only know that it's starting to look like the Ohio win was Texas State playing out of their mind and that Incarnate Word has a good enough football team to win that game. Lets call it the upset special.

You're logic makes no sense to me....you want to say IW is good based off them playing Nichols close (whom you only believe is good based on their games with USA, and Georgia), but when I bring up that they lost to a D2 school it doesn't count because it doesn't fit with your statement. So instead you try to tell me the transitive property doesn't work in football....when you are, in fact, using the transitive property to judge how "good" you believe IW to be. I think it's time to put down the shine and sober up a little. 07-coffee3

Idaho vs TROY could be closer, but I don't think they score 39, nobody not even Clemson scored that high.

Except Idaho will be giving you everything they have. Clemson was using a limited playbook (as most teams in their position do). Troy also allows a lot of passing yards.

Yes. Troy played several freshmen, including two true frosh QBs. I get the premise of your argument, but Troy still had some successes against Clemson that have carried over. That can not so easily be dismissed.

We have the best pass defense in the SBC right now at 6.4 yards per play, 10 INTs, 32 passes defended and 22 pass breakups.

We nearly double everyone else in those last three stats and we've played #2 Clemson and C-USA West Champ Southern Miss.

Opponents have attempted 181 passes on Troy's defense. The most in the league by a long shot. Consider Georgia State, with 68 pass attempts! and South Alabama at 86! The closest to Troy is Idaho whose opponents have attempted 139 passes. Troy is selling out to stop the run vs big time running teams like Clemson, Southern Miss, and Larry Rose's New Mexico State, and it's worked. We're taking away the run options and opponents are forced to throw the ball way more than they normally would. Idaho has no such back and won't get near as many passing yards. The game plan will be much different. You're not going to run on Troy's defense, and we're not giving you much room if you throw the ball either. If you don't have a great ground game, you won't get many yards at all.

From what I've seen, offense is a bit stronger, Red Zone scoring % is much higher, Fewer penalties. We had a real issue in red zone scoring last season.

Defense was are strongest asset last year and that has carried over to this year, as we lead the conference in sacks and interceptions. Pass defense was a bit off last weekend but it was addressed by CNB.

also 2nd year in the CNB system, We have had 2 years of recruiting which was one of the best in the conference and we are recruiting size and length.

Second year under proven P5 coordinators and assistant coaches. This team doesn't make near as many mistakes. Offensive and Defensive lines are bigger, longer, and stronger. Jordan Chunn took a medical redshirt last year and came back an absolute beast. He's been a huge part of our success at 6'1" 231 behind a 6'4"+ 300+ line. True freshman Jabir Frye at only 5'5" has made huge plays for Troy. He was a sleeper as Neal Brown puts it. He will be the fastest player on the field. He's blocked a punt that was returned for a TD, returned a kick for a TD, and outran the entire Clemson defense on 4th down for a TD.

The biggest difference is how opportunistic we are. We have 10 picks already and have capitalized on a ton of opponent special team miscues. The offense line is much improved and has only allowed one sack all year, by Clemson.
