    Week 1's Best Game:​
    Indiana over Ohio State 28-27​
    This one came down to the wire, as the Hoosiers were able to keep up with a very talented Buckeye squad. It came down to the final play when Ohio State scored with 29 seconds left, only to miss the extra point. After a failed onside kick and 2 kneel downs later, coach Alemic had his headliner win for the 2011 season.​
    Week 2 Games:​

    The Arkansas State Redwolves have a chance in week 2 to earn an easy victory. The Memphis Tigers have never been a strong football team, look for the easy win.​
    Arkansas State 28 Memphis 10​

    The Army Black Knights have another tough match up week 2. This one is really going to come down to defense, and honestly its a toss up. The option must get going for Army to stay close.​
    Army 35 Northwestern 31​

    This one matches up 2 of our 12 spot light coaches in a huge week 2 battle. Neither team was able to come away with a week 1 victory, and its hard to read this game.​
    Middle Tennessee State 21 Eastern Michigan 14​

    Another match up putting 2 of the spot light coaches against one another. UAB looks like they have the edge playing a better team week 1 and hopefully learning more from it.​
    UAB 28 Western Michigan 24​

    In a Mountain West match up the Air Force Falcons will visit the San Diego State Aztecs. Air Force looks like they will be to much to handle for the Aztec defense.​
    Air Force 42 San Diego State 28​

    Game of the Week:​
    Indiana @ Idaho​
    This one is more of a battle for the coaches than the players. The new head coach of Indiana, Alemic was the head coach of the Idaho Vandals last season. He lead them to a 5-7 season, dropping his last two games after a 5-5 start. Many fans around Idaho were not impressed by his play, and were hoping that he may leave and he did with at the first chance to take over a 2-10 Indiana team that had just moved to the Big 12. Week 1 Indiana pulled off one of the greatest upsets of all time taking down the #2 Ohio State Buckeyes in the Shoe. Idaho nearly pulled off their own upset at Stanford losing 28-25 under new coach whales. Folks around Moscow Idaho are hoping to send coach Alemic back to Indiana with a loss showing that they are in fact better off without him.​
    Keys to the Game:​

    On offense the Vandals are going to try to keep the ball as long as possible to keep this talented Hoosier offense off the field. Look for the running game to be a major part of this team, not only to gain yards but keep the clock moving. With the passing game they will be looking towards the TE's as so far this season they have stepped up more than the WR's.​
    Defensively the Vandals are going to be at a disadvantage. Look for a lot of mixed play calling and zone blitzes to help take care of some mismatches they are going to be facing. At the same time they will also have to be worried about the running game of the Hoosiers, and will hope to fill the gaps with the linebackers in order to slow it down.​

    On offense the Hoosiers have proven they can run the ball and will look to do it early. They rely on their 3-4 yard pick ups on every down in order to keep the chains moving. This team loves long drives down the field that keep the clock moving. When they do have to pass the Hoosiers just attempt to get what they need, limiting the action of the QB.​
    On defense we will most likely see a lot of man this week due to the better talent. Overall they will look to keep each play in check by putting faster and stronger players on the opponent. They will have to come up with a unique strategy in order to stop the talented TE's.​
    Prediction:​
    Indiana 35 Idaho 21​
