AAC Week 4 Roundup
WHO WON Navy beat UConn, 28-18. Memphis beat Cincinnati, 53-46. ECU beat Virginia Tech, 35-28. Houston beat Texas State, 59-14. WHO LOST Cincinnati lost to Memphis, 53-46. UConn lost to Navy, 28-18. UCF lost to South Carolina, 31-14. SMU lost to James Madison, 48-45. BEST WIN East Carolina’s upset over Virginia Tech narrowly edges out Memphis’ thrilling victory over Cincinnati simply because of the non-conference implications. The non-conference part of the schedule is winding down for the American and the Pirates picked notched another victory over a Power-5 opponent. A win like that, especially considering what the Pirates have done to ACC schools (five straight wins), boosts the credibility of the conference and solidifies its spot as the best non-Power-5 conference in the nation. CONFERENCE STANDINGS WEST Navy (3-0, 2-0 AAC) Memphis (4-0, 1-0 AAC) Houston (3-0, 0-0 AAC) Tulsa (2-1, 0-0 AAC) Tulane (1-3, 0-0 AAC) SMU (1-3, 0-0 AAC) EAST Temple (3-0, 1-0 AAC) USF (1-2, 0-0 AAC) UCF (0-4, 0-0 AAC) ECU (2-2, 0-1 AAC) UConn (2-2, 0-1 AAC) Cincinnati (2-2, 0-2 AAC) BEST PLAYER PERFORMANCE Replacing arguably the conference’s best quarterback is no simple task. But Cincinnati’s Hayden Moore has performed admirably, stepping in for the injured Gunner Kiel. The team’s loss to Memphis marked the second straight game that Moore had to enter the game due to Kiel being knocked out with an injury, and for the second straight game he produced. Moore finished 31-of-53 for 557 yards and four touchdowns, marking the best quarterback play in the conference to date. His two interceptions are an improvement from last week’s four-turnover game but his performance signifies the Bearcats’ legitimacy and the potency of that offense. WHAT’S NEXT Thursday 10/1 Cincinnati will host Miami (Fla.) Friday 10/2 USF will host Memphis (AAC) Temple will play at UNC Charlotte UConn will play at BYU Saturday 10/3 Tulane will host UCF (AAC) Tulsa will host Houston (AAC) Navy will host Air Force SMU will host ECU (AAC)
