Conference USA Power Rankings Week 4: Bulldogs fall fast


Marshall has once again been voted by C-USA bloggers as the best team in the conference after week four, and for the first time a unanimous decision, while a bad loss (albeit a late one) sent Louisiana Tech into a tail spin. See the official rankings below, followed by how we voted here at Wave the Red Towel.

TeamRankPrevious RankRecordThe Story So Far
114-0The Herd straight took it to another MAC opponent, and are looking scarier and scarier as conference play begins.
273-1ODU has a victory in their first ever C-USA game, plus they did it against the defending conference champs AND it was on the road. Thursday vs. MTBR will be interesting for sure.
3102-277 points, no matter the opponent, is impressive. Good job, North Texas
4112-2Southern Miss was the only conference team to pull out a win in a close game. Kudos.
532-1The Blazers were idle, and no one around them really helped their cause to move ahead of them.
652-1See – above.
742-2MTBR all of a sudden have an interesting matchup on Thursday.
861-2I bet you the Tops would have found a way to lose this week, so I’m kind of glad they didn’t play. They’ll head to Annapolis to face the Midshipmen this weekend.
911-2Same story as the past few, they get a pass for not playing.
1091-3FAU couldn’t come up with a win against the Cowboys, but it was close.
1122-2Another C-USA team bites the dust against an FCS team. I don’t know if the fact that this came down to the wire makes it better or worse.
12120-3Rice just isn’t having things go their way, and allowed ODU to walk into their place and send them to 0-3.
13131-3FIU took on Louisville and went about as well as you thought it might.
