IRVING, Texas -- Conference USA goes into a new season with no changes in its lineup of teams for the first time since 2012.The league has the same 13 teams that competed for the title last season, including defending champion Western Kentucky.There will be at least one change in 2017 with UABs return after a two-season hiatus, and who knows what happens if there is another national shift of teams. The Big 12, a Power Five conference headquartered just around the corner from the C-USA office, is considering expansion of its 10-team league.Were not blind to the fact that thats kind of what has been a hot topic the last couple of years ... and now it looks like its going to pick back up, WKU coach Jeff Brohm said. If we take care of our business and try to be a contender every year in the league, eventually good things will happen, but we like exactly where were at right now.Marshall coach Doc Holliday agrees, adding, Im not sure any of the other Group of Five is a better league than what we have right now.C-USA had 12 teams from 2005-12, though some teams changed during that span. There were 14 teams in 2013 with a bakers dozen in 2014, and again last year when FBS newcomer Charlotte came in as UAB temporarily shut down its program.THE FAVORITES:East Division: With a 5,000-yard passer last season, WKU averaged 50 points without losing a C-USA game. The Hilltoppers return all five starting offensive linemen, a record-setting receiver and a 1,000-yard rusher, but quarterback Brandon Doughty was a seventh-round NFL pick. WKUs toughest league games are on the road, at the other East favorites -- Middle Tennessee with its father-son coach-quarterback combo (Rick Stockstill is dean of C-USA coaches in his 11th season) and Marshall off three consecutive 10-win seasons -- and Louisiana Tech.West Division: Southern Miss, the alma mater of Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, was the most-improved FBS team last season, six wins better at 9-5 while winning the West and going to its first bowl game since 2011. Coach Todd Monken left for the NFL as offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay, but USMs record-setting quarterback is back. Fourth-year Louisiana Tech coach Skip Holtz (13-3 in C-USA games the last two years) has created the kind of depth that could help the Bulldogs overcome the loss of running back Kenneth Dixon (26 total TDs) and their quarterback.TOP PLAYERS- Southern Miss quarterback Nick Mullens. After 4,476 yards passing and 38 TDs last season, Mullens could emerge as a top NFL prospect as a senior.- WKU receiver Taywan Taylor. A nice target for the Hilltoppers new quarterback after 86 catches for 1,467 yards and 17 TDs last season.- Florida Athletic defensive end Trey Hendrickson. The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder, C-USAs sack leader, had more than one sack in five games.- Louisiana Tech receiver Trent Taylor. Undersized at 5-8, he is big catching passes: 99 catches for 1,282 yards last year.- Middle Tennessee quarterback Brent Stockstill. The lefty completed two-thirds of his passes (4,005 yards, 30 TDs, nine interceptions) as a freshman starting for his dad.NEW FACES- Marshall linebacker Davon Durant. A top junior college player who first went to Arizona State and got dismissed there, Durant could be a key player for a defense that lost seven starters.- North Texas coach Seth Littrell. North Carolinas play-caller the past two seasons hopes to have the same kind of spread-out, high-scoring offense in his first head coaching job.- Southern Miss coach Jay Hopson. Twice a Golden Eagles assistant in the past, Hopson was Alcorn States coach the past four years.- UTSA coach Frank Wilson. A first-time college coach after six seasons as LSUs recruiting coordinator.ON THE HOT SEAT- Ron Turner, FIU. The Panthers have gone from one to four to five wins under Turner. With a quarterback, running back and receiver among nine returning offensive starters, they need to be even better.- Charlie Partridge, Florida Atlantic. After consecutive 3-9 seasons, the Owls have 15 returning starters from a team that lost four games by a touchdown or less.-Brad Lambert, Charlotte. There are 19 fifth-year seniors who came as freshmen for the programs inception in 2012, a year before the first game. Could this be the last season as well for Lambert, 10-22 after a 2-10 FBS debut last year.PICKSEast: Middle Tennessee. West: Southern Miss.

James, who turned 29 on Monday, injured his groin Friday during the Heats overtime loss at Sacramento. He sat out the following game, a 108-107 win Saturday in Portland, before coming back to help send the Nuggets to their seventh consecutive loss.Widnes cruised to their first away win over Huddersfield in 20 years and went top of the Super League standings with a 36-18 victory. The Vikings, who finished in the bottom four last season, needed to win by seven points at the John Smiths Stadium to leapfrog Warrington into top spot and they reached the target with ease, with wingers Stefan Marsh and Corey Thompson scoring four of the seven tries in a rout of their injury-hit hosts.Former Huddersfield captain Kevin Brown was at the heart of another clinical display from Denis Betts men, who thrashed champions Leeds two weeks ago and have now won more away games in their first four matches than they managed throughout the regular season in 2015. The result leaves Huddersfield pointless at the foot of the table alongside Leeds, their next opponents at Headingley on Friday, and their misery was compounded by yet another injury as Jamie Ellis succumbed to a shoulder problem 24 minutes into the game.Second-rower Chris Dean took a pass from Chris Bridge to go over for the games first try on 11 minutes, and from then on it was smooth sailing for Widnes.Next, Browns grubber kick forced a goal-line drop-out, and a 40-20 kick then set up the position for Marsh to score the first of his two tries, courtesy of a Brown cut-out pass. Widnes Stefan Marsh dives over It went from bad to worse for Hudderssfield when full-back Aaron Murphy fumbled Browns high kick to gift a try to centre Charly Runciman, and Widnes would have been further ahead had Bridge been able to take the final pass after scrum-half Joe Mellors clean break.dddddddddddd.The loss of Ellis, the Giants key man in the absence of skipper Danny Brough, forced a reshuffle, with hooker Kruise Leeming forming a makeshift half-back partnership with Jake Connor.However, the Giants stayed focused, with a 32nd-minute try from second-rower Michael Lawrence, converted by triallist Jamie Foster, briefly giving the home side hope.But that was cancelled out moments before half-time when Huddersfield substitute Nathan Mason was sin-binned by referee James Child following a team warning, and Widnes took advantage of the extra man with second-rower Magraff Leuluai forcing his way over from close range for his sides fourth try. After leading 22-6 at the break, the Vikings put the game to bed with two further tries inside the first seven minutes of the second half.Runciman created the space for Marsh to score his second try and Thompson got in on the act with his fifth try of the season.Rhys Hanbury took his goal tally to four from six attempts, and although Huddersfield pulled a try back through loose- forward Larne Patrick, Thompson went on to score his second of the match to erase its effect.The Giants finished a badly-beaten side but they had the final say when Connors cut-out pass enabled Foster to score a consolation try.Watch Leeds Rhinos v Huddersfield Giants on Friday.
