Eastern Kentucky at Ball State, 3:00, ESPN3
Line: NO LINE
Fearless Prediction: Ball State 38, Eastern Kentucky 20

The Colonels gave Purdue a hard time in the opener, but the Ball State offense will blow up at home. This should be a scary game against a dangerous FCS team, but the Cardinals will take care of this in the first half.

Fresno State at Toledo, 3:00, ESPN Extra
Line: Toledo -20.5, o/u: 56.5

Monmouth at Kent State, 3:30, ESPN3
Line: NO LINE
Fearless Prediction: Kent State 24, Monmouth 10

The Kent State offense still won’t work, but the defense will stop a Hawks offense that’s been great on the ground over the first two games.

San Diego State at Northern Illinois, 3:30, CBS Sports Network
Line: San Diego State -10.5, o/u: 50
Game Preview & Fearless Prediction

Western Kentucky at Miami Univ., 3:30, ESPNEx

Game Preview & Fearless Prediction

Eastern Michigan at Charlotte, 6:00, CUSA.TV
Line: Eastern Michigan -3, o/u: 66
Fearless Prediction: Eastern Michigan 37, Charlotte 31

It’ll be a terrific game between two Group of 5 teams that have struggled for way too long. The veteran EMU defense will get behind the line stopping a few key late 49er drives to show that things really are changing in Ypsilanti.

Buffalo at Nevada, 9:00, Mountain West Network
Line: Nevada -11, o/u: 52
