    Ricky, I was thinking the same thing as you. I saw two Big East teams that jumped out at me.

    WVU (+2) at Va Tech - Virginia Tech off a tough loss at home vs NC State, can they recover in time; WVU kinda sleep-walking past JMU. WV beat Hokies 28-7 LY in Morgantown (granted, extremely tough to win there) as Tech was unbeaten and #3. In that game, WV outgained them by 215 yards. Year before, WV also won, this time in Blacksburg, 21-18, when Tech was #13. Randall sacked 10 times vs NCSU, as long as Mounties keep the pressure on, hopefully Tech won't score much. Looking ahead, WV has a bye, then play UConn on a Wed night. This looks real good to me.

    Syracuse (-6') also caught my eye. I saw them play this past weekend at UVA and that offensive line is mammoth! They actually did a pretty good job moving the ball, which sounds strange since they had 10 points. But they put a few long drives together (once turned it over on downs inside the 5) and QB played well I thought (15-23, 141, 0 td/int) for his first career start. Defense gave up 4 big plays, but did respectible otherwise on the road against a top 20 team. Now they get Rutgers, who is playing their first road game. RUs past 2 games they beat Kent State 29-21 and lost to IAA NH, 24-35. Cuse's only home game they beat a pretty good Cincy team, 19-7. RU did win last year 24-7, but the prior 2 meetings in the Dome were blow-outs, 45-14 (2002) and 49-21 (2000).

    Due to all the weather problems (they won in OT at Youngstown St). Just thought this was interesting as they host La. Lafayette (-7) today. Only FIU's 3rd year of football, first in IA. They've only played 2 IA teams ever (0-2), including a 43-10 loss at La. Lafayette LY, where they were out-rushed 236-94 (passing basically even).

    Thought a one-month layoff may be something to look at.
