This has the feel of a bowl week with ESPN treating us to great matchups on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night. Miami (Ohio), off to a rough start after losing star QB Ben Roethlisberger, is finally coming around. We expect the RedHawks to give Marshall a battle on Wednesday night.

Thursday's best game features Navy at Air Force. New Mexico hosts Utah on Friday night, in a game that might decide this year's Mountain West champion. It's also our best bet.
