9/8 BOISE ST-31 over connecticut – W
uconn is starting 7 freshmen and 2 transfers. They have a total of 17 freshmen in their 2-deep. In contrast BOISE ST is not starting any freshmen or transfers and only have 4 freshmen in their 2 deep. BOISE is off a nice road win at troy where they scored 56 against a traditionally tough troy defense. uconn only forced 1 punt against ucf.
9/8 MICHIGAN-28 over western michigan – W
MICHIGAN needs a strong performance to get everyone off their back after an inept offensive performance at notre dame. western michigan is not awful but their strength is offense which will be 90% negated by MICHIGANs top-notch defense. Their weakness is defense so this is just what the doctor ordered for MICHIGAN’s bland offense.
9/8 NEBRASKA-4.5 over colorado – L
NEB gets an extra week to prepare since their game was canceled. colorado looked good against col st but this time they will be at a talent disadvantage. colorado is starting 5 transfers and 2 freshmen. Their 2 deep is loaded with 11 transfers and 10 freshmen. This will be a fired up crowd in nebraska due to Scott Frost’s first game, so it’ll be a tough environment for all these newcomers.
9/8 TEXAS-23 over tulsa – L
Tom Hermann needs a blowout here to get everyone off his back. Tulsa does not do anything particularly well except run a hurry-up offense, but it did not look impressive last week against a very weak opponent in central arkansas. This is a classic get-well game.
9/8 ARIZONA ST+6 over michigan st – W
Basically 2 teams that are even talent-wise. Spread seems to be based upon last years results and the perception of Herm Edwards.
