Charlotte (1-7) at ODU (2-6)

Kick-Off 3:30

ESPN3

Opening Line ODU -7 1/2

ODU has lost six straight but have been more competitive in their last two outings (losses to WKU 31-35 and at North Texas 38-45). It'll be interesting to see if there are any additions to the offensive package with the bye giving GA more time to get his scheme implemented. I really want to win this game, I'm tired of losing in general and particularly to ODU.  They are not good, unfortunately we're not either but have been playing better since the Mullen demotion.

Prediction? I still can't pick us but think we keep it close and have a shot. Anyone making the trip up?

10% chance I go up.  10% chance we win.  I can't see Klugh sneaking up on anyone again, but they did play a tough game.  This is, I think, the last one we can win.

ODU’s offense is way better than ours. They will probably score 30+ points. No way we can score that many points even with a little confidence coming off the UAB win.

When I first saw this game on the schedule I considered going to it. Then afterwards going on up to Baltimore to visit my grandsons. But not now. That late loss to them up there two years ago still haunts me. Truly pulled a NINER then. 😭

Pilotonline.com: Forget a bowl bid. Old Dominion needs to end this 6-game losing streak.

Wow, no mention of us except saying they need to beat us... would've expected a little more than that...  maybe that's the Thursday article.

ODU should be our top rival. Time for us to win one in this series and start building a rivalry.

Cincinnati, Memphis and Louisville should be our top rivals but we punted on that in the 90's because it'd be too much work.


Sorry, triggered when I saw rival.

So I take it no one is going to this game?

I'll be there. If anyone is going and wants to meet up just let me know.

As I think more about this game, I'm hoping that this is the one match-up where our soft coverage could help us. ODU has been committing a ton of TOs so if we can make them move the ball slowly down the field through the air maybe we can get enough of them to tip the scales.
