After a rollercoaster of touchdowns and turnovers from previous night’s Rams Niners game, it’s time to keep that higher scoring momentum going into the weekend for some college football. Now, complete disclosure, I’m an NFL much better via and by means of, but there’s one thing about the younger, energetic, and emotional character of university football that retains me coming back again for far more and causes me to drop cash Saturday following Saturday. But placing that apart, let’s look over some previews for the weekend.
Before obtaining to the games, I require to consider a moment to convey my disappointment soon after the titillating initial 2 higher education football weekends. Don’t get me mistaken, I completely fucking enjoy coming back again into college soccer on Labor Working day weekend with a Saturday complete of prime dog matchups, but there is a particular emotion of emptiness after we strike Weeks 3 and 4 and have 2 or three prime 25 match ups. We cannot get ‘em all, but what the fuck?
Hunting at the matchups this weekend, there a handful that adhere out as possibly gimme’s or full Vegas traps. I am even now determining.
Starting up with the NC Condition Wolfpack heading down to Tallahassee to enjoy the Seminoles. At present, the Noles are 12.5 pt preferred, which would seem way as well fucking excellent to be correct. Due to the hurricanes coming up from the Caribbean, the Seminoles have not performed given that Week 1 in their loss to the Tide. Like a caged animal, observe for them arrive out of the gates very hot and slaughter the Wolfpack. As McConaughey stated in Two For The Cash – “Everyone is aware of you do not mess with a man who just lost his dog” – I think it is fairly fucking evident you really do not mess with a staff soon after a all-natural fucking disaster. Consider the Noles: -12.5.
On the otherside of that 7 days 1 match up in Atlanta, we have Alabama heading up to Nashville to perform Vanderbilt. Now, I think every person is aware Vandy is the youngest brother in the family of SEC faculties, but with an undefeated three- record and new off a prime twenty five win above the Kansas State Wildcats, they are beginning to display they are the genuine deal. Nonetheless, becoming the youngest brother in that SEC family, it’s high time their luck ran out. As eighteen.5 property canines to the Tide, it appears somewhat tempting to get the factors right here, but with an opponent the likes of which they have not noticed but this year, I’d be mindful prior to using the residence crew. Count on the Tide to get up early and pound the Commodores with their defense. Alabama -eighteen.five all the way.
Clean off a reduction to Clemson, Louisville will have an straightforward residence sport towards the Kent Condition Golden Flashes. (side be aware: the fuck is a Golden Flash? A single of the stupidest fucking mascots in the NCAA) Count on an absolute slaughtering, even so, be careful off the forty four level unfold in this recreation. Certain, I feel Louisville could pull this off if they perform like champions, but as we noticed in their Week one and two match ups, Louisville has a tough time pulling absent from groups they need to crush. Take the factors. Kent State +forty four.
Now for another catastrophe staff: Miami Hurricanes. Only getting played 1 recreation thanks to the storms hitting Florida, The U is all set to demand out of the gates. Enjoying at house in opposition to Toledo, Miami will have some good ammunition to just take on the Rockets (another fucking stupid mascot) and crush the 13.5 point unfold. Whilst the o/u 61.5 line is little little bit much more shakey, it is risk-free to say that the Canes will operate all more than the Rockets this weekend in their very first recreation given that Week 1. Miami -13.5.
For the final school choose of the week, let’s look at the very best match up of the weekend – Georgia, Mississippi St. On the road, Overlook St will have a fantastic chance to display why it’s 37-7 win above the LSU Tigers was not an anomaly. They’re the actual offer. With that stated, Ga is not a doormat crew by any stretch of the term. Possessing traveled up to Notre Dame and successful in a great shoot out, the Dawgs have shown they will be a single of the prime, if not the top, contenders for the SEC East. Nevertheless, as a 4.5 level favored at property, I’m heading to have to take the Bulldogs out of Mississippi to include their side of the distribute. This’ll be a fantastic match with UGA pulling off a shut earn, but I really do not see them masking for much more than a subject purpose. Mississippi State +four.5.
Free pick for Friday night’s game among Virginia and Boise State: Consider Boise State -twelve.5.
