Jacksonville State -28 vs Eastern Illinois..Clearly Saturday's beat down of Eastern Ky got them some attention..

Curious about Eastern's team this year as Eastern Ky prides itself as having a good football program..

Also curious as to where the action is being layed on these teams as they were MIA on the Vegas boards..I know ..Best not to ask...

Go Racers..

Besides JSU, TSU is the toughest opponent on the schedule. Looking at the Sagarin ratings, Murray has a (long) shot at going 7-1 in the conference this year - if they continue to overachieve the numbers/odds and play as well as they have (must improve the defense).

The OVC is full of dogs sans JSU this season and there isn't a clear runner-up. I'll predict Murray will go at least 4-4 in conference play this year. I wouldn't be surprised with a winning conference season.

We're dead last in pass defense in conference games only and it's not even close... :oops:

Vegas does not post lines on games involving "2" FCS teams. Those lines come from only a few offshore books. The biggest and best one is 5dimes. The 5dimes lines on FCS games come out each Monday evening. The following are the OVC lines as of this afternoon:

TSU -3 1/2 at MURRAY ST.
AUSTIN PEAY at SEMO -1 1/2
EKU at UT-MARTIN -7
EIU at JSU -28

UTM's QB is pretty solid and is a threat to run so that keeps the defense honest (#15 in passing yards per game and #24 in points responsible for per game.)

EIU's QB and receiving corps is top-notch and they will continue to post gaudy numbers, imo. (Alexander Hollings #5 nationally in receiving yards per game and #2 in receptions per game. He's also #2 nationally in scoring per game.

I'm afraid it doesn't get much better this week with Tennessee State's Chris Rowland being the top player in the nation in receiving yards per game and #3 in receptions per game! He is #1 nationally in all-purpose yards as well!

Their QB Demry Croft is #16 in passing efficiency, #18 in passing yards per completion, #40 in total offense and #15 in yards per pass attempt.

TOP 40 RANKINGS

TENNESSEE STATE
#1 blocked kicks allowed
#1 in blocked punts allowed
#8 in first down defense,
#9 in time of possession,
#10 in passing offense,
#13 in total offense,
#14 in kickoff returns,
#15 in passes had intercepted,
#17 in blocked kicks
#17 in punt returns,
#20 in team passing efficiency,
#26 in tackles for loss allowed,
#29 in scoring offense,
#31 in passing yards per completion,
#32 in team tackles

MURRAY STATE
#1 in blocked kicks allowed,
#1 in blocked punts allowed,
#7 in defensive TDs,
#12 in net punting,
#23 in punt return defense,
#35 in blocked kicks,
#36 in sacks allowed,

Both teams have great kickers so if the game comes down to a final kick, you can pretty much write it down as good unless it is >50 yards.

Go get 'em Racers!
