Odds to win the 2013-2014 Conference USA Division
None of the teams in the Conference USA are not likely to make it to the BCS Championship game. In fact, Bovada does not even have any Conference USA teams listed in the odds to win a National Title. However, the odds for which team is going to win the Conference USA division are very close.
Tulsa – 2/1
It is Tulsa’s last season with the Conference USA and most are expecting another division championship for them before heading to the American. RB Trey Watts was ranked ninth in the nation in rushing offense last season. The rest of Tulsa’s rushing offense will also be returning.
However, there are also a lot of new, inexperienced, faces. Tulsa in not a lock for the championship or a bowl game, but they are definitely the team to beat in the Conference USA.
Marshall – 7/2
Offensively, Marshall is a championship team. QB Rakeem Cato threw for 4,201 yards and 37 TDs, leading the nation in passing. Marshall was sixth in overall offense.
Defensively, Marshall could not get the job done last season. They allowed 43 points a game last season. Marshall could easily win the Conference USA East and even make a run at outdoing Tulsa in the west if they can manage to tighten up their defense.
East Carolina – 4/1
It is also East Carolina’s last season with the Conference USA and they want to go out with a bang. They have a schedule that features a handful of non-conference games including battles against North Carolina and Virginia Tech. They will also have a big game at the end of the season on Nov. 9 against Tulsa that very well could determine the Conference USA Champion.
