Two Sun Belt teams on ESPN.com's Winless Watch

Bristol, CT (ESPN.com) - Welcome to the Winless Watch, where we take a look at the teams still waiting on that first victory of the year, and their odds of getting it this week.

Six teams won their first game of the season last week. But there are still six others looking to turn that frown upside down:

Western Kentucky (0-4). Streak: L 24. This week: Bye. Chances: 100 percent. No game means no chance for a loss! But the bad news is the Hilltoppers will be back on the list next week.

FIU (0-3). Streak: L 5. This week: at Pittsburgh. Chances: 10 percent. FIU has certainly not embarrassed itself in its extremely difficult start to the season. Its third straight road game against a school from an automatic qualifying conference ends in Pittsburgh, which looked terrible against Miami last week. Still, the Pittsburgh Panthers should be able to win, but this one is going to be close.

Eastern Michigan (0-4). Streak: L 16. This week: Ohio. Chances: 20 percent. The Eagles have played two close games, and two not so close games. Ohio has been inconsistent this season, but the Bobcats should be able to win this game.

New Mexico State (0-3). Streak: L 10. This week: Boise State. Chances: 0.5 percent. Not going to happen this week, not after coach DeWayne Walker said playing the Broncos was like playing an SEC school. But watch out for next week -- home game against New Mexico.

New Mexico (0-4). Streak: L 5. This week: UTEP. Chances 20 percent. It is homecoming for the Lobos, so they might be extra motivated to win. But it is hard to see how they are going to score or compete. They have lost by an average of 46 points a game.

Akron (0-4). Streak: L 4. This week: Northern Illinois. Chances: 20 percent. The Zips have scored eight touchdowns in four games and are one of the worst in the country in passing defense. Oh, and quarterback Patrick Nicely has been sacked 13 times. They made improvements last week, but they are going to find it difficult to slow down Chad Spann and Chandler Harnish.
