C-USA Football: Week Seven Review

For the first time this season Conference USA did not suffer a defeat outside of league action. Yes, Rice was the only team to play an out of conference match-up, a 34-14 win over UTSA but, even little victories count.

C-USA kicked off week seven early as Tulsa hosted UTEP Thursday night. The Golden Hurricanes defended their home turf, walking away with a 33-11 victory over the Miners. In other Western division action, Tulane earned its first win of the season, 27-26 against SMU.

Marshall’s opponents for the next two weeks, Southern Miss and UCF, tangled in thrilling double overtime finish. After going up 38-31 on their second overtime possession, Knight’s cornerback Kemal Ishmael intercepted a pass from USM quarterback Anthony Alford to seal the victory. Staying in the East, ECU took down Memphis 41-7 and UAB lost a cross divisional game to Houston 39-17.
