fcs UC Davis 0 0 17 UC Davis isn’t loaded with stars
  California 0 0 31 but it is a top 20 FCS outfit.

  USC 0 0 45 air and that will limit the margin.
           
  Kent St. 0 0 17 New coaches at UW and a room filled with

fcs C Conn St. 0 0 24 UConn looked so good against Utah State last week
  Connecticut 0 0 38 that I’m now wondering about Utah State.

  W Kentucky 0 0 32 Worst played game of the
  Hawai’i 0 0 21 week? Probably.

  Louisiana 0 0 46  
           
  Florida St. 1 0 17  
  LSU 0 0 32  
           
fcs Norfolk St. 0 0 7 Marshall will look good this week. But next week is Notre Dame
  Marshall 0 0 45 and the Herd will realize how much they miss qb Grant Wells.
           
  Buffalo 0 0 17 I don’t see any way total points get
  Maryland 0 0 41 above 61 like betting lines suggest.

20 Miami Fl 0 0 52  
           
  Colorado St. 0 0 10 CSU will make a game of it for

  W Michigan 0 0 17 Betting odds call for a 20+ point spread but not with Savvy

  Florida Atl. 0 0 24 Upset
  Ohio 0 0 33  
           
  Notre Dame 0 0 24 This game will get a lot of hype

9 Oklahoma St. 1 0 37 including a bowl win over Wash St.
           
  Virginia Tech 0 0 38 High upset potential because ODU
  Old Dominion 0 0 24 has tremendous upward trends.
           
  W Virginia 0 1 24 The battle of former USC
  Pittsburgh 1 0 39 transfer quarterbacks.
           
24 Penn St. 1 0 31 Hard to believe PSU still has Sean Clifford at
  Purdue 0 1 24 qb. Doesn’t he ever graduate?
           
fcs Portland St. 0 1 10 San Jose State quarterback Chevon Cordeiro
  San Jose St. 1 0 46 will put up some big numbers here.
           
fcs Nicholls 0 0 27  
  S Alabama 0 0 33  
           
  Georgia St. 0 0 27 Expect S Carolina to get a slow start

  Liberty 0 0 38 Is Charlie Brewer really the
  S Miss 0 0 17 answer at Liberty?
           
  Louisville 0 0 28  
  Syracuse 0 0 38  
           
  Ball St. 0 1 20 Both the spread and total points
  Tennessee 1 0 34 are too high in the gambling lines.
           
  LA Monroe 0 0 14 … but ULM showed some encouraging
  Texas 0 0 44 up trends to end the 2021 season.
           
fcs Sam Houston St. 0 0 14 This is a risky, risky game for Texas A&M because

fcs Murray St. 0 0 14  
  Texas Tech 0 0 48  
           
fcs Long Island 0 1 6 This will be worth watching because of Toledo’s
  Toledo 1 0 59 dynamic quarterback Dequann Finn..
           
  Massachusetts 0 0 27 Don Brown is a great hire for UMass. I can’t see this
  Tulane 0 0 36 game getting to the betting spread of 28.5.
           
fcs Alabama A&M 0 1 6  
  UAB 1 0 46

fcs Idaho St. 0 0 17  
  UNLV 0 0 41  
           
8 BYU 0 0 45 How betting lines have this as a 12-point game

  Houston 0 0 28 I agree with the gamblers …
21 UTSA 0 0 34 Houston wins this.
           
fcs Elon 0 0 24 I know, I know— Vandy beat Hawai’i by 53 last week

13 Wisconsin 0 0 48 they get to 12 against Wisconsin.
           
  Tulsa 0 0 34 Wyoming looked awful last week,
  Wyoming 0 0 17 much worse than I expected.
