UNLV (0-0)
The Rebels are putting their oft-sputtering spread offense in the hands of a redshirt freshman QB (Travis Dixon) who won the job as a result of an injury to incumbent starter Rocky Hinds. Hinds, you'll recall, is the USC transfer who was expected to revive the program, but struggled with a bum knee in his first year as the starter and has yet to recover from January surgery on his ACL. It's unlikely Dixon would be in this position had Hinds not been hurt, but the frosh is viewed as a more mobile -- and therefore, exciting -- option who might be able to thrive in the spread's zone-read running plays.

Anyone else psyched for the Temple-Buffalo rematch on Sept. 8 in Philly? How can you not be after last year's meeting was tied 3-3 at the end of regulation and finished 9-3 after a game-winning interception return by the Bulls? That aside, Year 1 of life in the MAC should be more uplifting for the Owls, who have traded some of the ugly, guaranteed losses from their independent schedule -- Louisville, Minnesota, Vanderbilt and Clemson, in particular -- for more manageable opponents.
