Anyway, tonight's match-up isn't anything to write home about as Florida Atlantic (0-1) takes on East Carolina (1-0). FAU is coming off a 34-6 beat-down by the hands of Miami (of the Florida variety) while East Carolina beat Old Dominion 52-38. The game starts at 7:30, stop in for our open thread and join the fun. On to the last week's results.

As you can so clearly see, there's not much difference as there are 3 perfect weeks at the top and the rest all had 1 minor hiccup. I put bscaff at the very top to boost his ego because he probably won't be there long, but kudos to you sir.

We get an idea of A) how good Northwestern is and tangentially B) how good Syracuse really is because Penn State's former foe is matched up against the Wildcats. The only headliner this week is the showdown between the Fighting Irish and Michigan, all the other games are a no-brainer on paper which brings us to.....
