Louisiana Lafayette vs North Texas Pick

The first edition of the always odd Tuesday night college football betting action in the Sun Belt starts this week, and the first two teams up are the North Texas Mean Green and the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns.

Texas A&M vs. Louisiana Tech Picks

Hurricane Isaac wiped out the first game of the season for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and the Texas A&M Aggies. College football betting action will take place on Saturday for these two though, as they played their postponed game at Independence Stadium in a de facto road game for the Aggies.

Texas A&M has averaged right at 74 snaps per game this year, and that’s exactly what Head Coach Kevin Sumlin promised to bring to this team.

Tennessee vs. Mississippi State Picks

SEC rivals clash in Starkville on the NCAA football odds on Saturday night, as the Mississippi State Bulldogs hope to move to 6-0 when they take on the Tennessee Volunteers.

The pressure is starting to mount once again on Head Coach Derek Dooley. After starting 2-0, the Vols have been beaten in two of their last three games with both losses coming in the SEC East, and losing this one would likely be the continuation of a four-game losing streak when push comes to shove.

USC vs. Washington Picks

Teams that are evolving into arch rivals in the Pac-12 are going to meet for some NCAA football betting action on Saturday night on FOX, when the Washington Huskies welcome to town the USC Trojans.

Oh, the ironies in this game for the Men of Troy. They are on the road against their former coordinator, Steve Sarkisian, and they are playing in the very same building that their old coach, Pete Carroll is now coaching in on a regular basis for the Seattle Seahawks.

Stanford vs Notre Dame Pick

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are really starting to believe that they have a real chance of going to the BCS this year. In order to do that though, they are going to have to start by knocking off the Stanford Cardinal in a crucial tilt on the college football odds on Saturday afternoon.

As bad as the Cardinal have looked at times this year, the bottom line is that they are a 4-1 team ranked in the Top 20 in America,

Utah Utes vs. UCLA Bruins Picks

The Utah Utes entered the PAC 12 Conference last year, and they had a solid 8-5 season in 2011. The Utes expected to accomplish bigger things this year, but injuries have slowed them down. UCLA had another disappointing season last year, and they hired Jim Mora Jr. to take the team in a different direction this year. The Bruins are off to a solid 4-2 start to the season. Still, they are just 1-2 in the PAC 12. Can they level their conference record with a home win here?

Texas Longhorns vs Oklahoma Sooners Pick

The Red River Rivalry isn’t quite as meaningful in the national picture as normal, but that won’t stop these two heated rivals from battling hard all the way through this Saturday afternoon’s contest. Both teams already have a loss and are almost assuredly out of the national title picture, but this is still a rivalry game between two teams with aspirations of winning the Big 12 Conference. Let’s take a closer look at this game.

Kansas State vs. Iowa State Pick

Every year the Kansas State Wildcats are overlooked, and every year they make some serious noise. Bill Snyder may be the best coach in the nation. It’s hard to argue against him, since he gets so much out of his talent at Kansas State. The Wildcats are all the way up to number five in the rankings, but they’ll face a very dangerous Iowa State team in Ames this weekend. This game isn’t getting the same publicity as some others this weekend, but it has major national implications.
