Here are the Week 1 kupcake matchups

These 11 top-25 teams will all have 1-0 records come Sunday. The games will be incredibly boring and virtually over by 8 minutes into the second quarter. No one but the diehard alumni and fans will bother watching. I'll be out fishing. The only question worth answering: How much will their combined scores exceed the combined scores of their little minion opponents?

I estimate a 390-point spread. What do you think?

2. Ohio St.(2) vs Buffalo
3. Oregon(3) vs Ark State
7. Louisville(9) vs Ohio
8. Florida(10) vs Toledo
9. Notre Dame(11) vs Temple
13. Texas (15) vs NM State
14. Oklahoma (16) vs UL Monroe
15. Michigan (17) vs Cent Michigan
16. Nebraska (18) vs Wyoming
20. WISC(23) vs MASS
22. Oregon State (25) vs Eastern Washington

Will go with 300-the Toledo, EW, and Wyoming games may be a lot closer than some think. And ARK State should be able to put up some points.

Oh, the disrespect for MAC teams...

Ohio was 9-4 in 2012, defeating ULM in the Independence Bowl. Their losses came to Miami (OH), BGU, Kent State, and Ball State.

Toledo was 9-4 in 2012, losing to Utah St. in the Idaho Potato Bowl. Their other losses came to AZ, Ball State, and N.Ill.

Central Mich went 7-6 in 2012, defeating WKY in the Little Caesars Bowl.

On the other hand, Buffalo got whacked, 4-8 in 2012.

Thought I posted this earlier....hmmmmm

UL Monroe beat Arkie, lost of Auburn by 3 and lost to Baylor by 5.....they aren't all that bad.

Toledo > Pitt

Ohio, Toledo, and ULM are not cupcakes

Eastern Washington is an FCS power. If they were playing on the crimson turf in Cheney I'd be tempted to pick them to win. Nebraska isn't all that, either. The Cowboys are going to hang with them for a time. And as others have said, the MAC are not patsies.

Apologies for the double post... Stupid hiccup...

Not that it matters, but UO is playing Nicholls St...which could increase the 390 pt spread a little.

Forgot about Ohio, quality program there. Low chance of a huge blowout.

Maybe time to abandon this site. Give it up for dead.

It is a death ship, crewless (ie clueless) floating adrift in the Bermuda Triangle.
