This article is part of our College Football DFS: Friday Slate series.
Today we'll be tackling the seven-game DFS slate for Friday as the college football season swings into high gear. For those of you new to CFB DFS, there are some significant format differences between college and NFL game play. A detailed summary of those differences can be found here.

Utah State at Wake Forest (-3) O/U: 60
Wisconsin (-13) at South Florida O/U: 58.5
Tulsa at Michigan State (-23.5) O/U: 47.5
Massachusetts at Rutgers (-15.5) O/U: 65.5
Colorado State at Colorado(-13.5) O/U: 65.5
Purdue(-11) at Nevada O/U: 58.5
Oklahoma State (-14) at Oregon State O/U: 72

Coach Mike Gundy still hasn't officially made up his mind between Sanders and Dru Brown, and I expect both guys to see action on Friday. That's too much variance for me.

I consider Love to be a no-brainer here, as his output is as safe as you'll find among the available
