Lots to overcome for the Miners (2-1). They have lost 25 in a row to ranked opponents on the road, and they're 0-20 vs. BCS conference teams since the BCS was founded in 1998. They're 0-15-1 in the Eastern time zone, with the tie coming against West Virginia in 1949. … For a little more perspective, UTEP needed overtime to win its opener against Division I-AA Stony Brook. USF (3-0) opened with Stony Brook last season, winning 59-14.
