I tend to agree with the SHPawdcast rankings more until I see more of the teams although I might swap UH and SMU – guess that will be settled on Saturday night.
Also, the AAC West is wide open. I don’t like that Navy has already jumped out to a 3-0 lead but they still need to go to Memphis and Houston and play UCF as well. SMU could get to 4-0 if they beat UH and then follow up as likely favorites @ Cincy and home for Tulsa before they get to UCF, @ Navy and @ Memphis in 3 straight weeks in November. UH’s and Memphis’ schedules seem to be the most favorable:
Memphis: Navy, Tulane, SMU, ECU at home and UConn, UH and Tulsa on the road.
UH: SMU, Memphis, ECU and Navy at home and Tulsa, USF and Tulane on the road.
6-2 in AAC play may win the West.
