Of the CUSA bowl season participants, the two teams NT fans might have been rooting against were UTSA and MTSU. As it happens Kris Kringle granted these wishes and both lost. Depending on how Tuesday goes (11 point dogs!) the league will either go 5-2 or 4-3 this December. So it goes.
- ESPN HIGHLIGHTS
- Middle Tennessee put in a game that mirrored their season, looking good early, stumbling a bit, and then finally managing to make it sort of interesting before falling apart. QB Stockstill returned but looked rusty and made mistakes. Hawai‘i was fun, aggressive and explosive in the run game.
