    week 13 match ups
    Conference USA
    SMU @ East Carolina
    MAC
    Ohio @ Kent State
    Central Michigan @ Toledo
    MWC
    UNLV @ SDSU
    Sun Belt
    Arkansas State @ FIU
    WAC
    La Tech @ New Mexico State

    There are lots of interesting match ups as the regular season comes to a close. SMU will be heading into the Conference USA title game and quite possibly a bcs bowl for the first time in school history. UNLV takes on bitter rival San Diego State in a MWC showdown. San Diego State has slipped through the national radar thus far and holds a undefeated record. In the Sun Belt Arkansas State travels to FIU to take on the Golden Panthers. FIU will be on the warpath after a heart breaking loss in week 12.


    Now on to a soon to be hot topic……….the first ever Z2H Coach of the Year. So far there are two standout coaches who are making a statement for the title. First is the head coach of SMU. Coach has took a low prestige team and brought them to a undefeated season and they currently hold the #5 spot in the nation. SMU has the potential to shock the college football world and be the first team from Conference USA to receive a BCS Birth.
    SDSU coach is also making his run for coach of the year. This coach has taken a little known team from San Diego and brought them to be a top 25 team. Not only that the but the Aztecs are currently sporting an unblemished record. SDSU has fought off the likes of TCU and UTAH this year and seem to be ready for what comes at them.

    Now for the first Bowl Projections here at Z2H

    Awesome work as always, Sabo(y)

    I would love the chance to play Cal again and redeem my only lost of the season so far. However, don't I have Boise State on my schedule this week? Didn't check online yet, but I thought I was squaring off against the #4 team in the land.

    I don't think you play Boise this year. I think we both have a bye this week and I have to pay Boise next week.

    Sorry to interject here. Someone said in another thread on TF that it had to do with a glitch with Hawaii playing USC.

    http://www.traditionfootball.com/forums/showthread.php?t=28919

    There are 3 teams with 11 games in the first year on NCAA 11

    Boise State
    West Virginia
    Western Michigan

    Nevada has 12 games but is missing the Boise State game.

    Man that sucks. Having the opportunity to play Boise State (albeit I will be the heavy underdog) and possibly beat them would do wonders for my season (recruiting, prestige, RANKINGS). Taking a team like Boise State out of my schedule really hurts(n)

    Yeah that does suck, but you can play them next year and have a great chance at beating them.

    Bdub... You *MUST* upset Boise St. if I am to have a good chance at making the top 2 teams for a championship game!!

    Ohio St., will most likely not lose.. If Boise St. doesn't either, the highest I can get is third with a Georgia Tech loss.

    But yeah.. Boise St., must lose! And Georgia Tech. I'm hoping GT goes down in their conference championship.. or Ohio St. goes down to Michigan.

    Even if I win you might get snubbed just like you would if SMU ever ran the table in real life.

    Well, looks like it doesn't matter since I just lost to a WINLESS ECU team...

    So f***ing embarrassing for my program... My back-up quarterback threw EIGHT interceptions. Just ridiculous.. Nothing went right. Tons of dropped touchdowns, picks, fumbles.. Disastrous.. So upset =/
