2008 Mid-Major Football Predictions

No one cares about the non-BCS conferences until one of them upsets a good team. Well, that could happen this year. Watch out for Utah, RichRod. No, really, I think the Utes will beat Michigan. Here are the mid-majors to watch:

Utah (MWC) - Really good on defense. Solid quarterback. I think they'll beat Michigan.

BYU (MWC) - Really good on offense. Best quarterback you've never heard of in Max Hall. Good on defense. BYU-Utah could be a battle of the unbeatens. Seriously.

East Carolina (CUSA) - Beat Boise State (OMG! Boise State!) in the Hawai'i Bowl last season. Skip Holtz is a good coach. Need consistent QB play.

Fresno State (WAC) - A lot of preseason mags think they'll be this year's Boise State or Hawai'i and make a BCS run. I think they're going to suck. So you may want to watch that.

North Texas (SBC) - If anything, they'll be fun to watch. TADD DADGE has had his system in place for a whole year and now his son will likely be his quarterback. The University of Southlake Carroll will put up a lot of points.

Central Michigan (MAC)
- If they didn't play Georgia, I'd think they could run the table. I really like their quarterback, Dan LeFevour.
