Predicting the Winner of Each College Football Conference in 2016 – Bleacher Report

8 months ago Comments Off on Predicting the Winner of Each College Football Conference in 2016 – Bleacher Report

Every year, Group of Five conferences provide a couple entertaining teams to watch because of explosive offenses. Western Kentucky, Bowling Green, East Carolina and Marshall have filled those roles lately, but Southern Miss will lead the bunch in 2016.

Although the departures of Mike Thomas, Casey Martin and Jalen Richard, as well as head coach Todd Monken, are significant, Nick Mullens is back. He amassed 4,476 yards and 38 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions last season.

On the other side of Conference USA, Western Kentucky has become a safe choice to contend. Even while breaking in a new quarterback, the program should complete the rematch of the 2015 title.

This time, however, Mullens and Co. out-offense the Hilltoppers and grab the C-USA crown.
