2020 FBS predictions for week 3

Last week, the Savvy index finished 16-4 in predicting games to bring the season total to 23-6 (79%).

This week will have about two dozen games, give or take cancellations, reschedules and other unforeseen events.

Georgia Tech upset Florida State last week and now has its sights on hosting 11th ranked UCF.  We know the Yellowjackets are rising but Savvy sees them as still nine points less than UCF.

Fourth ranked Notre Dame hosts USF in a game that prediction experts say the Fighting Irish will win by 25+ points.  USF looked unprepared last week so the Bulls are deserving of that prediction.  Nonetheless, Savvy sees this as a mere 35-21 advantage for the Notre Dame.

Oddsmakers also have Pittsburgh by 20+ over Syracuse but I lean more toward Savvy’s six point margin.

Here are all of the Savvy Index predictions for week three:
