Before seeing the spreads, I was the most off this week on Air Force at Utah State. I assumed it would be close to a pick ’em, not Utah State -10.5. I’m missing something – this Aggie run defense isn’t that great. It’s good enough to get the home win, but the Falcons should be able to keep it close.

The Cleveland Browns won a football game, Nine Inch Nails played The Perfect Drug live, and now … UTEP will finally break its long losing streak and get a win over an equally lousy New Mexico State? Nah. The Aggies finally put it together after an awful 0-4 start – the passing game will show up.

UTSA is about to go on a run. Blow off the first three games against Arizona State, Baylor and Kansas State – this Roadrunner team is about to pile up the wins. It starts with a layup over Texas State. The 7.5 point seeped is about ten too light.

Didn’t Troy just beat Nebraska in Lincoln? Didn’t ULM get stomped by 38 at Texas A&M? Obviously the Aggies are far better than the Huskers, but the Warhawks are getting a whole lot of love at home as just a 4.5 point dog against the Trojans.
Virginia Tech hasn’t actually beaten anyone. Florida State stinks, and William & Mary is William & Mary. The Hokies didn’t play last weeks and now it gets a road game at Old Dominion. If they’re interested, the 27.5 won’t be an issue.

Don’t focus on the Liberty 52-10 home win over Old Dominion as much as the 38-14 loss at Army. The Flames might be one of those teams that plays at another level at home, but North Texas just win at Arkansas by 27. Take that chance that the 13 isn’t going to be an issue.

This Missouri team appears to be far better than last year’s version. Drew Lock is playing well in the more controlled style, and the defense is doing a strong job so far. Georgia isn’t going to totally annihilate the Tigers in Columbia, but it’ll put together a steady performance to get out by more than the 14.5. This is where the Dawgs continue to prove that they really do belong in the top two.

Until further notice, whatever the Alabama line is, just take Alabama. The 26.5 given up to Texas A&M is ridiculous by reasonable and normal standards, but we’re dealing with something at a whole other level. If it’s wrong and the Aggies cover, then tip your cap and go on about your day. I’ll keep pointing this out week-by-week. The big difference this year is Jalen Hurts coming in when it’s a blowout – the offense keeps working.

There’s a solid chance Wisconsin only giving up three to Iowa is the easiest play of the weekend. The Hawkeye D is fantastic, the lines are great, and it’s a night game. But if the Badgers really are as angry as they appear to be after that BYU loss, they win this in a walk if their lines play up to snuff.

While the Pac-12 crowd will be focused on Stanford-Oregon, Arizona State vs. Washington could become more meaningful – it might just be a Pac-12 Championship preview. Forget what the GameDay crew might say in Eugene – Washington is the best team in the Pac-12. It’ll beat ASU, but the Sun Devils will keep it within the 17.5. Don’t be freaked by the loss at San Diego State – they’ll handle themselves just fine in Seattle.

And Finally …
I can not BELIEVE I’m even thinking about Eastern Michigan keeping this relatively close against San Diego State. The Eagles did beat Purdue at Purdue, and the Aztecs should win this without too much trouble, but it should be more about efficiency than dominance. It’s the late-night chaser this week, and that 12 number is awfully big, but …
It’s EASTERN MICHIGAN. It’s going to be hard to rationalize, but yeah … the Eagles should keep this close. The line went up from 9.5 to the 12 – watch it stabilize.
