This article is part of our College Football DFS: Night Slate series.
The two major sites provide an almost identical slate for Saturday night's contests. The outlier games are the Mississippi State/South Alabama game (FanDuel) and the Missouri State/Oklahoma State game (DraftKings). We will briefly touch on those games at the conclusion of the article, and both games have some interesting contrarian options.
Syracuse (-1) @ Ohio O/U: 56
Texas Tech (+1) @ Houston O/U: 64.5
Oregon State (+7.5) @ Purdue O/U: 68.5
Georgia (+3) @ Clemson O/U: 51
Florida Atlantic (+23.5) @ Florida O/U: 52
Kent State (+29.5) @ Texas A&M O/U: 67.5
LSU (-3) @ UCLA O/U: 65
Southern Miss (+1.5) @ South Alabama O/U: 56.5 (FANDUEL ONLY)
Missouri State (+38.5) @ Oklahoma State O/U: 58.5 (DRAFTKINGS ONLY)

For example, the Georgia/Clemson game sports one of the lowest O/U totals on the slate. I wouldn't place too much stock in that number, however. While a higher game total like LSU/UCLA will certainly carry some worthy selections, the game in Charlotte will definitely turn in some elite numbers and with greater frequency.

If you look at DJU's two starts in place of Trevor Lawrence, the numbers are outstanding. He averaged almost 400 passing yards per game against two of the toughest teams on their schedule (Notre Dame and Boston College). Now,
