Week 3 College Football Picks Against the Spread

By Braden Gall, 1 year 1 week ago
College football goes to another level in Week 3 as conference play begins to open up across the nation. Things start to get real this weekend and I’m going right along with it. There are some “circle the wagons” games this weekend and I tend to like the underdog in those matchups. Otherwise, I’m turning to the favorites in the ACC and the biggest game out West...

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers vs. Indiana Hoosiers Preview and Prediction

By Michael Bradley, 1 year 1 week ago
You’ll have to forgive Western Kentucky and Indiana for feeling a little out of place as they convene Saturday in Bloomington. Both sit at 2-0, the first time the Hilltoppers have reached that point in 10 years. Though the Hoosiers have reached the plateau more recently, it has been five seasons since they made it to 3-0. Both teams have the chance to gather some momentum as they head...

Illinois Fighting Illini vs. North Carolina Tar Heels Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 1 week ago
Sometimes, adversity can be a good thing. It can serve as a motivating force that can bring a team together. After the first two weeks, it looks like that may be happening at Illinois. Tim Beckman was fired as Illinois' head coach due to allegations that he pressured the medical staff to get injured players back on the field. Whether the Fighting Illini rallied for their ex-coach or in...

Kent State Golden Flashes vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers Preview and Prediction

By J.P. Scott, 1 year 1 week ago
Jerry Kill and his Minnesota Golden Gophers had big plans heading into 2015. Two games into the season, the Gopher offense has emerged as an area of concern and a possible hurdle in the way of getting to where Kill wants those plans to take them. Kent State comes to Minneapolis on the back of a 45-point performance against Delaware State — two weeks removed from a blowout loss at...

Air Force Falcons vs. Michigan State Spartans Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 1 year 1 week ago
Last week, the Spartans scored a victory in one of the most high-profile games in the history of Michigan State's football program. This week, the Spartans have an early kickoff versus a team outside of the Power 5. Could this serve as a stumbling block for a team still basking in the national adulation and enjoying a Top Four ranking in both major polls? The Falcons will leave Colorado...

UNLV Rebels vs. Michigan Wolverines Preview and Prediction

By Mike Bainbridge, 1 year 1 week ago
After a sluggish start last week against Oregon State, the Wolverines finally started to resemble a competent offense by rattling off 35 straight points en route to a 35-7 blowout victory over the Beavers. The Michigan defense also stepped up their game, limiting Oregon State to just two yards of total offense after the first quarter. For UNLV, the major concern centers around starting...

South Florida Bulls vs. Maryland Terrapins Preview and Prediction

By Elton Hayes, 1 year 1 week ago
Bowling Green, fueled by 42 second-half points, overcame a 13-6 halftime deficit to defeat the Maryland Terrapins 48-27 in College Park, Md., Saturday. The win was Bowling Green's first against a Power Five conference team on the road since 2008. Maryland, for the second consecutive week, failed to generate a productive passing attack and head coach Randy Edsall replaced starting...

Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Purdue Boilermakers Preview and Prediction

By Jon Kinne, 1 year 1 week ago
Virginia Tech did what it needed to do last Saturday. Coming off Week 1 when the Hokies lost both the game to Ohio State and quarterback Michael Brewer to a shoulder injury, Virginia Tech defeated Furman 42-3 behind two touchdown passes from Brenden Motley. Likewise, Purdue climbed to 1-1 by beating an FCS opponent as well. Quarterback Austin Appleby threw for 289 yards...
