Personal Picks 5-0-0
9/15 arizona-23.5 over UTEP – W
Big talent gap. UTEP missing starting QB. Backup is a known quantity (not good). UTEP also lost 8 players to injuries last week. Arizona is off a close loss where their defense played pretty well. Arizona should be able to score at will and even their poor D should be ok against UTEP’s inept offense. Plus this is short road trip for arizona in a familiar desert climate.
9/16 ucla/MEMPHIS over 73 – W
2 top QBs in Rosen and Ferguson going at it against mediocre defenses. UCLA has shown they are a pass first team. Memphis will be going for it as this is by far their most exciting home game of the year for them, so expect Ferguson as a senior to impress.
9/16 notre dame-13 over BC – W
ND is playing physical on both sides of the ball this year. BC lacks speed and offensive punch to challenge good teams. ND is coming off a close loss to a good Georgia team. BC will feel like practice compared to Georgia.
9/16 OHIO ST-30 over army – W
Expect an angry Ohio St team after letting Baker Mayfield plant a flag. Army will give it their all but they are not the same as Navy and Air Force which have gamed the system to get better talent in their academies. This is a good matchup for Ohio St with their great run D against the triple option. They can simply overpower Army with their running game and JT Barrett will not be pressured to make any tough passes.
9/16 texas+15.5 over USC – W
USC is rolling offensively, but have not stopped anyone on defense. Texas has the offensive punch to score with them. Tom Hermann is great as a big underdog so expect him and his team to have confidence.
