This is all just for spits, giggles, and entertainment purposes only. However, just in case you dabble …
USF should do whatever it wants against a UMass defense that has no prayer. This is the week to open up the attack a bit, but all you care is that 15.5. If Ohio can beat the Minutemen by 16, and FIU can win by 39, and Georgia Southern can win by 21 … you don’t care that the Bulls might be a little bit chilly in Amherst, Massachusetts.

Well let’s go, East Carolina. It stinks that the line went down from Temple -13 to -11 – it was a steal at close to two touchdowns going ECU’s way. The Pirates really are playing better, and most of all, there’s a defense now. At home, Temple pulls this off, but with QB Reid Herring going, like ECU getting a big old cushion.

There are way, way, way too many points in that SMU-UCF total. The Knight offense is still amazing, but 75?! On principle alone, go with the under, and as you know by now, pick against UCF against the spread at your own peril.

You’re being warned: I have no handle on Tulane this year. I’m always a bit off, but I’ll buy into Cincinnati and a defense that is finding its offensive groove. If you like the Bearcats at all, you’re not going to blink at them giving away a touchdown.

Should you be scared if you’re Navy that Air Force is 12th in the nation in run defense? A little bit. However, the Falcons can’t move the ball, they really, really have no passing game, and they can’t win the close games. Navy will own third downs, and that should be enough to win and cover the three, but don’t go crazy here.

Memphis should play angry after wetting the bed against Tulane on national TV. It’ll put up a massive number on UConn, but the Husky O should hang around 20 or so. The Tigers could put up more than 50 points without a problem, but getting to 35 points might be a bit difficult. And yeah, the 78 point total is ridiculous, but it might be a really, really fun thing to shoot for if you like ridiculous over plays.
