Old Dominion Monarchs 2016 Schedule Breakdown

We now continue to break down the 2016 Conference USA football schedule with Old Dominion:

9/3 Hampton
9/10 at Appalachian State
9/17 at NC State
9/24 UTSA
10/1 at Charlotte
10/8 U Mass
10/22 at Western Kentucky
10/29 at UTEP
11/5 Marshall
11/12 Southern Miss
11/19 at FAU
11/26 FIU

Notes: September will be hit and miss for the Monarchs, as they should find opportunities for wins against Hampton and UTSA, but will be dogs in road trips to Appalachian State and NC State. I see a 2-2 start to the season.
October is an interesting month, as ODU could open with a win at Charlotte, and then they have an interesting game with U Mass. In all, I will call it for 2 wins there. The end of the month has tough road trips to Western Kentucky and UTEP, where I could see 2 losses.
The wheels could come off the wagon in November, as I expect ODU to start the month 0-2 with losses to Marshall and Southern Miss. If ODU cannot catch FAU and FIU by surprise, the party ends badly, but they could get one or two wins there if FIU and FAU have run into issues by then.
Overall Projected Record: 5-7
