It's Thursday and that means the Non-BCS Breakdown is here to give you all that you need to know about what is going on in the non-AQ front. Joining us, like always, is Adam Nettina our inside man when it comes to all things around the MAC, WAC, Sun Belt, Mountain West, Conference USA and Independents. Make sure you check out The Birddog and Go Mids to help support the cause folks. As always we've got some games, a player you oughta have your eye on, a few BCS Busters and this week we see the return of our Non-AQ Game of the Week.
On the games front we kick it off in the Mountain West as Air Force travels to the blue turf in a game that should see the Boise State Broncos continue to roll. In Conference-USA we've got the Houston Cougars taking on Marshall as the Cougs try to keep their record blemish free. Heading to the WAC Nevada has rebounded since their early struggles to make this contest against Fresno State a bit appetizing. Then we get to Vandy, a team that almost beat UGA and was off to a hot start in the first quarter of the season and we'll see if the Commodores can get back to winning against an Army team that needs a W to keep their bowl hopes alive.
Bernard Pierce, Temple's running back, gets his due as the kid has 17 rushing touchdowns and looks to have a big day against a Bowling Green team that isn't exactly stellar. When we get to the BCS Busters we're down to three as Boise State, SMU and Houston try to climb in the rankings. Our game of the week? SMU heading down to the Rock to take on Southern Miss. The Rock in Hattiesburg is not an easy place to play and the Golden Eagles are going to test June Jones' Mustangs.
Oh and folks make sure you tune into Sun Belt Tuesdays. It is a great opportunity to watch some off the radar kids get their shine on.
