Another 2-3 week thanks to some bad luck, or awful football, with Cincinnati turning the ball over three times and missing three field goals to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Coming off consecutive losing weeks and with two Friday selections below, you'll know what to fade Saturday!
Louisiana Tech +3.5 at Florida Atlantic (Friday)
What has happened to Lane Kiffin's bunch? There issues seem to come mainly on the defensive side, where they rank 107th against the rush and 101st against the pass. The Owls are 1-6 ATS to date while the Bulldogs are 3-1 ATS on the road. LaTech allows only 3.76 yards per carry, suggesting FAU won't explode offensively, and they bring a balanced offensive attack that should put points up, possibly winning a tight contest.
Utah -10 at UCLA (Friday)
Utah leads the nation in rush defense, allowing 74.6 yards per game, and while the Bruins likely weren't leaning on their 85th ranked rushing attack, that's going to put a lot of pressure on quarterback Wilton Speight's arm. Speight is coming off of just his eighth 200-yard passing game in 18 appearances in the last three years, throwing multiple touchdowns just six times. The Utes allows 17.7 ppg (16th) while UCLA allows 31.3 (96th). Nothing suggests a deviation from these norms, which leads to a safe cover.
