The Ohio Bobcats of the Mid-American Conference might be this year's BCS-buster, opening the season with a victory over the Penn St. Nittany Lions. The 24-14 victory was a mild upset -- given all that Penn State has been through recently -- but it's the only game the Bobcats play against a BCS conference team.

But let's not overlook the New Mexico St. Aggies (1-0), to bust the potential BCS-buster. The Aggies picked up a 49-19 win over the Sacramento State Hornets Quarterback Andrew Manley threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns while the ground game found the end zone four times.

Ohio's victory over Penn State was fueled by Tyler Tettleton's 31-of-41, 324 passing yards and two touchdowns performance. Beau Blankenship ground out the yards on the ground with 31 carries for 109 yards. Will that offense show up again or will the Aggies put a close on Ohio's BCS chances?
