Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Charlie McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for NCAA Football news and notes. The 2015 Conference-USA Football Conference should be just as exciting as it was last season. The 2014 Marshall Thundering Herd of the East Division captured the title last season, beating West Champs LA Tech. The Conference could have had a BCS representative as Marshall took an unblemished record into the final game, but a home loss to Western Kentucky dashed their hopes. Charlotte University begins its first season in the FBS after playing in the FCS for two years. The 49ers will compete in the East Division. C-USA headquarters are in Irving, Texas and the 2015 season promises to be exciting. High scoring of the top teams has been an attraction to Point Spread Bettors. The NCAA Football Betting Experts at Charliessports.com ranks the team in 2015.
(1) *The Louisiana Tech Bulldogs will finish first in the C-USA West: La Tech has a proven transfer who was a starter in the SEC. Running Back Kenneth Dixon has NFL ability and a wideout who can make plays.
(2)*Texas El-Paso will finish second in the West: The Miners have a grind it out kind of style that is designed to run the clock and protect their defense. Running Back Aaron Jones will gain 1,000 yards again and a stout defense will propel the Miners.
(3)*The Rice Owls and quarterback Driphus Jackson has help with a returning. The Wide Receiver position and the defense could be liabilities.
(4)*The North Texas Mean Green coaching staff must rebuild the offensive line. The “LONE STAR STATE” is loaded with talent and the coaching staff has to find way’s to attract potential student athletes.
(5)*The Texas San Antonio Road Runners were tough on defense to start the 2014 season but faded down the stretch. A National Championship coach and a good running back are all UTSA brings to the table.
(6)* How the mighty have fallen is all you can say about Southern Mississipi. The once-proud Golden Eagles football program is now in the cellar in C-USA, and it will be another season in the basement. Southern Miss lost too much on the defensive line.
(1)*The 2015 Marshall Thundering Herd lost a four-year starter at quarterback, but Doc Holliday has a transfer under center. The Herd also has one of the best running backs in the FBS. The Herd has talent on offense, but the defense will be a work in progress.
(2)*Western Kentucky has Brandon Doughty under center. The Florida native returns to improve his draft stock. The Hilltoppers offense will put up huge numbers again in 2015. The bad new is the defense will allow opponents plenty of scoring opportunities. Can WKU carry last season’s momentum into 2015.
(3)*Middle Tennessee Head Coach Rick Stockstill enters his ninth season with some decent talent on both sides of the football. The offense will put points on the board, but must cut down on turnovers. Middle Tennessee has many options on both sides of the ball and will contend for the East title.
(4)*The Old Dominion Monarchs lost their quarterback, but his replacement will catch on quick. Running Back Ray Lawry will get his yards and the passing game will be better as the season progresses. The defense won’t be able to stop many opponents, but ODU will be a fun team to watch.(5)*The Florida International Golden Panthers have one of the best defenses in C-USA. There is talent on offense and sophomore quarterback Alex McGough has a year of experience. The Golden Panthers aggressive defense will keep them in games.(6)*The Florida Atlantic Owls has a versatile quarterback but no other proven commodities on either side of the football. The FAU defense will have trouble stopping the run. It will be another long season in Boca Raton, Florida.(5)*The Charlotte 49ers have been playing FCS football. Fans in the largest city in the “TAR HEEL STATE” wants big time College Football, well it’s here. The 49ers have talent, but like most C-USA teams the defense is suspect. Charlotte couldn’t stop FCS opponents. It is going to be a long season.
