Just looking at the schedule in Healy’s first season.
8/31 - Gardner-Webb, FCS team coming off a 3-8 season (must win)
9/07 - at Appalachian State, 2018 Sunbelt champs, do they take a step back with a new coach?
9/14 - UMass, coming off a 4-8 season and will have a new coach (must win at home if we want to make a bowl)
9/21 - at Clemson, body bag game take the check and don’t get injured.
At ODU, I suspect they will turn things around in Norfolk next season.
Marshall, coming off a solid season and always a consistent winning program.
At WKU, new coach and big unknown.
FAU, took a big step back in 2018. Lane Kiffin has never had long-term success anywhere another big unknown.
At FIU, Butch Davis has always been able build talented college teams. Can we finally knock off FIU?
MTSU, CUSA East division winner. I think Stockstill may graduate. Do they take a step back?
CUSA West, don’t know yet but we’ve never played UTEP, LA Tech, or UNT since joining CUSA.
At CUSA West, don’t know who we’ll play yet.
