'm not sure I've ever been more excited for a game between Bottom 25 teams than I am this week. We've seen plenty of meaningful tilts between members of the Sun Belt or Conference USA in the past, but this week brings something special.

It's not just a matchup of Big 12 teams ranked in the Bottom 25; it's a game between two Big 12 units ranked in the Bottom Five. I feel like I've waited my entire life for this game. I don't care who else is playing this week; it's the most important game on the schedule.

The Bottom 25

23. UMass 2-6 The Minutemen are on a two-game winning streak! The win over Georgia Southern was expected. Beating Appalachian State was not. (19)

22. UConn 3-5 Like any good dog, the Huskies have returned home. (NR)

21. Tulsa 2-7 I would say Tulsa is going to lose at least two of its last three, but I have no idea what this team is capable of doing at any given moment. (24)

20. Illinois 2-6 The Illini covered the spread against Wisconsin, which has to be a moral victory. Now get rid of the gray uniforms. (22)

19. Cincinnati 2-6 The Bearcats had the week off. (21)

18. BYU 2-7 BYU crushed San Jose State 41-20, and I think the Cougars have one more win in them this season. Maybe even two if you want to get crazy. (11)

17. Old Dominion 2-6 The good news for the Monarchs is that their last two losses have been one-score affairs. That's a change of pace from their first four losses. (18)

16. East Carolina 2-6 The Pirates had an entire week to celebrate their win over BYU, but Houston looms this week. (16)
team logo
15. Texas State 2-6 We will not have a repeat champion this season. Texas State knocked off Coastal Carolina 27-7. (4)
team logo
14. North Carolina 1-8 Was hanging with the Canes a good sign for North Carolina, or was it just a byproduct of Miami not being able to blow anyone out? (15)

13. Kent State 2-6 Tuesday night MACtion -- unofficially sponsored by The Bottom 25 -- is back this week when Kent State hosts Bowling Green. (14)

team logo
8. Charlotte 1-7 The Niners had the week off and have a big matchup with Old Dominion this week. (9)

6. Bowling Green 1-7 As I alluded to above, I'm hyped for the Halloween night matchup between the Falcons and Golden Flashes. It's a trick and a treat. (7)
