Conference USA Final Analysis

What more could you possibly want if you care about Conference USA football?

The two big name head coaches couldn’t have better, with Butch Davis turning around FIU right away, and Lane Kiffin making Florida Atlantic amazing.

North Texas came up with a quietly terrific season, Marshall was back to being good, Southern Miss was solid, and Louisiana Tech and Middle Tennessee were fine. And then there was UAB – no one saw that coming, with one of the best stories of the college football season.

There were problems – Charlotte, Rice and UTEP might have been the three worst teams in the country – and it was a shame that UTSA didn’t get to a bowl game despite being eligible, but overall, it was a terrific year for the league.
