Record: 2 - 2

Last Week: #8
7.Houston Cougars
Record: 2 - 2
Notes: A win is a win, but there is something off with the Cougars through four games. Can they turn it around in AAC play?

8.SMU Mustangs
Record: 2 - 2

Last Week: #6
9.Rice Owls
Record: 2 - 2
Notes: Rice hung with Houston for nearly four full quarters before a few turnovers cost the Owls. A bowl bid is in reach with C-USA play on deck.
Last Week: #7
10.Texas State Bobcats
Record: 1 - 2
Notes: A 2-2 non-conference record is right where the Bobcats need to be entering the Sun Belt schedule. Those wins came against FIU and Houston Christian.
Last Week: #11
11.UTEP Miners
Record: 2 - 3
Notes: UTEP potentially salvaged its season with a big home win over Boise State.
Last Week: #12
12.North Texas Mean Green
Record: 2 - 3
Notes: The Mean Green gave up an average of 46 points per game in two contests against future AAC opponents. The offense did the defense no favors in the loss to Memphis.
