Tulsa vs UCF Live

They are on the road again on Saturday and play against the UCF Knights at 7:30 p.m. ET Oct. 3 at Bounce House. The Golden Hurricanes are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one.

Tulsa had to start their season on the road last week, and it wasn’t the start they were hoping for. They came up short against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, falling 16-7. QB Zach Smith wasn’t much of a difference maker for Tulsa and threw one interception with only 166 yards passing.

Meanwhile, UCF took their game against the East Carolina Pirates on Saturday by a conclusive 51-28 score. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point UCF had established a 41-14 advantage. Their QB Dillon Gabriel was on fire, passing for four TDs and 408 yards on 47 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was Gabriel’s 64-yard TD bomb to WR Jaylon Robinson in the second quarter.

Special teams collected 15 points for UCF. K Daniel Obarski delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.

UCF’s victory lifted them to 2-0 while Tulsa’s loss dropped them down to 0-1. The Knights caused 4 turnovers against East Carolina, so the Golden Hurricanes will need to take especially good care of the ball.

Odds

The Knights are a big 21.5-point favorite against the Golden Hurricane, according to the latest college football odds.

Oklahoma vs Iowa State Live

The Iowa State Cyclones are 1-4 against the Oklahoma Sooners since November of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Saturday. Iowa State and Oklahoma will face off in a Big 12 battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at Jack Trice Stadium. If the contest is anything like the Sooners’ 42-41 victory from their previous meeting November of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

On Saturday, the Cyclones narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the TCU Horned Frogs 37-34. RB Breece Hall had a stellar game for Iowa State as he rushed for three TDs and 154 yards on 18 carries. Hall put himself on the highlight reel with a 75-yard TD scramble in the second quarter.

Speaking of close games: it was close but no cigar for Oklahoma as they fell 38-35 to the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday. Oklahoma was up 21-7 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Despite their defeat, they got to see several of their players rise to the challenge and make noteworthy plays. QB Spencer Rattler, who passed for four TDs and 387 yards on 41 attempts, was the best among equals.

The Cyclones are expected to lose this next one by 7. They have failed bettors playing the spread in all their past two games, so buyers beware.

Iowa State’s win lifted them to 1-1 while Oklahoma’s loss dropped them down to 1-1. Giving up four turnovers, the Sooners had had trouble holding onto the ball. We’ll see if Iowa State can exploit that vulnerability.

Odds

The Sooners are a solid 7-point favorite against the Cyclones, according to the latest college football odds.

Ole Miss vs Kentucky Live

The Ole Miss Rebels and the Kentucky Wildcats will face off in an SEC clash at 4 p.m. ET Oct. 3 at Kroger Field. The odds don’t look promising for the Rebels, but the bigger the opponent is, the harder they fall.

On Saturday, Ole Miss couldn’t capitalize on their home-field advantage in their season opener. The contest between Ole Miss and the Florida Gators was not particularly close, with Ole Miss falling 51-35. Ole Miss was down 41-21 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The losing side was boosted by QB Matt Corral, who passed for three TDs and 395 yards on 31 attempts in addition to picking up 50 yards on the ground.

Meanwhile, UK scored first but ultimately less than the Auburn Tigers in their game on Saturday. The Wildcats lost to Auburn on the road by a decisive 29-13 margin. Kentucky’s loss came about despite a quality game from RB Kavosiey Smoke, who punched in one rushing touchdown.

Both teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses this week. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.

Odds

The Wildcats are a solid 6.5-point favorite against the Rebels, according to the latest college football odds.

North Carolina vs Boston College Live

After a two-game homestead, the North Carolina Tar Heels will be on the road. Their bye week comes to an end as they meet up with the Boston College Eagles at 3:30 p.m. ET at Alumni Stadium on Saturday. UNC was 7-6 last year and is coming off of a nothing to nothing against the Charlotte 49ers last week. BC was 6-7 last season and is coming off of a 24-21 victory against the Texas State Bobcats on Saturday.

The Tar Heels have the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.

Alabama vs Texas A&M Live

Considering their sizeable disadvantage in the spread, the Texas A&M Aggies can expect to have a real challenge on their hands on Saturday. A&M and the Alabama Crimson Tide will face off in an SEC battle at 3:30 p.m. ET at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Aggies have not won a single game against Bama in their most recent matchups, going 0-5 since October of 2015.

A&M gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener on Saturday. They snuck past the Vanderbilt Commodores with a 17-12 win. A&M can attribute much of their success to RB Isaiah Spiller, who picked up 117 yards on the ground on eight carries. Spiller’s longest run was for 57 yards in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, Bama had to kick off their season on the road on Saturday, but they showed no ill effects. They had enough points to win and then some against the Missouri Tigers, taking their game 38-19. The Crimson Tides’ RB Najee Harris looked sharp as he punched in three rushing touchdowns.

Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. We’ll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Aggies and Bama clash.

Odds

The Crimson Tide are a big 16.5-point favorite against the Aggies, according to the latest college football odds.

LSU vs Vanderbilt Live

The LSU Tigers and the Vanderbilt Commodores are set to square off in an SEC matchup at 7:30 p.m. ET Oct. 3 at Vanderbilt Stadium. The Tigers won’t have the home-field advantage, but they do enjoy a 20-point advantage in the spread.

On Saturday, LSU couldn’t capitalize on their home-field advantage in their season opener. They took a 44-34 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Mississippi State Bulldogs. What made the loss an especially bitter pill for LSU to swallow was that they had been favored by 14.5 points coming into the contest. The losing side was boosted by WR Terrace Marshall Jr., who caught eight passes for two TDs and 122 yards.

The LSU defensive unit accumulated five sacks for a loss of 45 yards. Leading the way was S JaCoby Stevens and his two sacks. Those were the first sacks for Stevens through Week 4.

Meanwhile, Vanderbilt had to hit the road for their first game, and unfortunately the road hit them back. Vanderbilt didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 17-12 to the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday. QB Ken Seals had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw two interceptions with only 150 yards passing.

With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. LSU caused 4 turnovers against MSU, so the Commodores will need to take especially good care of the ball.

The Georgia Bulldogs are 5-1 against the Auburn Tigers since November of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success on Saturday. The Bulldogs and Auburn will face off in an SEC battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at Sanford Stadium. UGA has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency.

UGA had to travel to play their first game of the season, and the final result was worth the trip. They took their matchup against the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday by a conclusive 37-10 score. The win came about even with UGA handicapping themselves with 97 penalty yards. UGA QB Stetson Bennett was slinging it as he passed for two TDs and 211 yards on 29 attempts.

Clemson vs Virginia Live

The Clemson Tigers have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. Clemson and the Virginia Cavaliers will face off in an ACC battle at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. Both teams come into the contest bolstered by wins in their previous games.

The Tigers got themselves on the board against the Citadel Bulldogs last week, but Citadel never followed suit. Clemson put a hurting on Citadel at home to the tune of 49 to nothing. The matchup was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Clemson had established a 49 to nothing advantage. Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 168 yards on nine attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Lawrence’s 54-yard touchdown toss to WR Frank Ladson Jr. in the second quarter made for one of the most memorable moments of the evening.

Meanwhile, Virginia gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener on Saturday. They strolled past the Duke Blue Devils with points to spare, taking the game 38-20. Virginia’s RB Wayne Taulapapa was one of the most active players for the team, punching in two rushing touchdowns.

The Cavaliers’ defense was a force to be reckoned with, as it collected five interceptions and two fumbles. S Brenton Nelson snatched up two of those interceptions, both in the third quarter.

The Tigers are the favorite in this one, with an expected 28-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.

Everything came up roses for Clemson against Virginia when the two teams previously met in December of last year as the squad secured a 62-17 win. Will Clemson repeat their success, or does Virginia have a better game plan this time around? We’ll find out soon enough.
