Anyone who would install UNLV as a 45 point favorite over anybody is stupid. The G5 isn't that far above FCS in terms of talent. The gap is minuscule compared to the P5 - G5 gap.

Howard has been a FCS bottom feeder for a long while though, I'm sure no one expected either A. UNLV to be that bad and/or B. Howard to be that good.

Yep.

We should only play very bad FCS programs. SWAC, MEAC, and an occasional OVC or Big South dreg (Austin Peay). Have no idea why some schools (especially G5s) schedule these top-flight FCS programs. Risk of a loss is just too high. Schedule Savannah State or Austin Peay, not James Madison, SHSU, NDSU, Jacksonville State, etc.
