|Friday Lock Results|
BYU (-3) at Boise State | This BYU team seems like the real deal. Zach Wilson should be getting more Heisman buzz shortly. This game should be a really fun one to watch.
Florida (+3.5) at Georgia | Kyle Pitts has been a man on a mission this season with 7 touchdowns through 4 games and I expect him to be the difference maker in this game for Florida.
Stanford at Oregon (-10.5) | PAC-12 finally joins the season, and I think Oregon will come out firing on all cylinders.
Clemson (-5.5) at Notre Dame | Even without Trevor Lawrence at quarterback, the Tigers continue to prove why they’re one of the best in the country. Built with a defense capable of making opponents one dimensional, this side of the ball will be the difference maker in the contest. Notre Dame is run heavy and could rack up plenty of yards on the ground. However I don’t know they do it at a clip worthy of defeating Clemson.
Michigan (-3) at Indiana | While the Hoosiers have started to challenge the Big 10, the Wolverines have not dropped a contest to the program since 1987. In banking on that trend to continue.
Oklahoma (-38) vs Kansas | This is a bad Jayhawks team routinely surrendering 50-point games in conference play. With Spencer Rattler and company in front of a limited home crowd, I don’t expect anything less. The real issue will be late in the game as KU looks for a back-door cover.
BYU (-3.5) at Boise State | BYU finally gets to showcase their talent against a top 25 team on Friday night. I believe they are the real deal and will put that on full display. It may be close, but I like the odds of BYU winning by at least four points.
Notre Dame (+5) vs Clemson | Clemson barely escaped Boston College last week without Trevor Lawrence. This week they will be without him once again. This time against the #4 team in the country, a comeback won’t be so easy. After their performance a week ago it’s hard to see them beating Notre Dame.
Oklahoma State (-12.5) at Kansas State | The Pokes will look to bounce back from their loss to the Longhorns last week. They have a great opportunity against a Kansas State team that is without their starting quarterback. I’ll take OSU winning this one by at least two touchdowns.
Michigan at Indiana (+3.5) | The Big 10 is a joke to me since they started late, and to add to it, The Wolverines are still somehow ranked after losing to Michigan State last week. Give me the Hoosiers straight up in this one.
UMass at Marshall (-45.0) | 45 points is a bigger spread than I like to touch, but I feel good about this one.
Kansas at Oklahoma (-38.0) | Do I even need to give a reason? The Jayhawks are awful, and the Sooners are surging, so I’ll take Oklahoma by a hundred. Just kidding. Make it a half a hundred.
NC State (+10) vs. Miami | I have this game being about a touchdown in favor of the Hurricanes. Both teams are good offensively and mediocre defensively. That should make for an entertaining and fairly close game.
San Jose State (+9.5) at San Diego State | Two really good defenses on this one which leads me to take my second underdog in a row.
Indiana (+3.5) vs. Michigan | Why not? Let’s make it three underdogs in a row. This is a really tough spot for Michigan coming off the Ohio State loss.
