Incarnate Word (0-1) at North Texas (1-0)

Time, Network: 7:30, ESPN+ | Get Tickets
Venue: Apogee Stadium, Denton, TX

The North Texas offense might hang 100. Of course, it won’t, but the offense that hummed on all cylinders – cranking up 444 passing yards and three scores from Mason Fine – in the 46-23 win over SMU. Incarnate Word did the impossible and gave up 361 passing yards to New Mexico in the 62-30 loss. There will be a combined 700 yards of passing, and most of them will be on the Mean Green side.

UTEP (0-1) at UNLV (0-1)

Time, Network: 9:00, MW Network | Get Tickets
Venue: Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas, NV

UTEP got a new head coach, it’s a new year, and there’s enough experience to hope for things to get better after a winless season, and then … pffffft. The air went out of the balloon in a 30-10 loss to Northern Arizona. The offense that managed 229 yards isn’t going to suddenly find itself this week.

UNLV didn’t play all that poorly in the loss to USC, hanging around until getting hit hard in the fourth quarter. Armani Rogers has to find the passing touch that wasn’t there against the Trojans, but he and Lexington Thomas will combine for over 200 yards on the ground in a blowout home win to kick off what should be a strong season. This will be the UNLV team the fan base is hoping will be a factor in the Mountain West race.

Fearless Prediction & Line

Prediction: UNLV 41, UTEP 16
Line: UNLV -23.5, o/u: 55.5
ATS Confidence out of 5: 3

Rice (1-1) at Hawaii (2-0)

Time, Network: 12:00 am, Stadium | Get Tickets
Venue: Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, HI

Hawaii has been the Group of Five story of the first few weeks, with Cole McDonald and the run-and-shoot offense crushing Colorado State before rolling at will in a fun win over Navy. Now it’s all going to keep going.

Rice hasn’t been horrible in the start of the Mike Bloomgren era – the hung tough for three quarters in the loss to Houston last week – but the passing game isn’t good enough to keep up. Shawn Stankavage threw for over 200 yards and three scores against the Cougars, but the Owls need to pound away with the ground game to win.

They’ll pound out over 300 yards, but they’re about to bring a knife to a Honolulu gun fight.

Fearless Prediction & Line

Prediction: Hawaii 51, Rice 30
Line: Hawaii -17.5, o/u: 71
ATS Confidence out of 5: 2
