This won't be pretty. UCF just escaped a battle with Temple and will surely look to massacre their next opponent in order to get some style points for the human polls. Lucky for them, a Scarlet Knights squad is completely unraveling, meaning this could be a blood bath on Thursday Night in front of a national audience. Drew Brees will be playing on NFL's Thursday Night Football, so hopefully more eyes will be watching him tear up the Falcons.

Don't expect any decisions on Flood anytime soon. Many thought this was a game Rutgers would lose anyway, so barring a complete, unmitigated disaster, this game most likely won't have any effect on his hot seat status. The games to watch are UConn and USF. If he loses one of those, or both...keep an eye on the short list for available coaches.
