Top 10 Sun Belt Conference Clashes of 2013

Sept. 14: South Alabama at Western Kentucky

This is the first year that South Alabama will be eligible for the Sun Belt title after joining the conference as part of its transition from the Football Championship Subdivision last season. The lone Sun Belt team that South Alabama beat last season (Florida Atlantic) is no longer in the conference, so the Jaguars will have to find a new opponent to defeat. Western Kentucky started hot but fizzled down the stretch last season, losing four of its final five games, including a 24-21 loss to Central Michigan in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.
