Utah State vs BYU Pick

The BYU Cougars and the Utah State Aggies fight it out on Friday night in the second game of a college football betting doubleheader on ESPN, as these two clash for Beehive State supremacy.

You have to go back to 1974 to find the last time that the Aggies were able to beat both the Cougars and the Utah Utes in the same season. There has been a heck of a lot of frustration in the interim, but now is the opportunity for Utah State to shine.

Pittsburgh vs Syracuse Pick

The Big East will be on display on Friday night at the Carrier Dome, where the NCAA football odds will be contested between the Syracuse Orange and the Pittsburgh Panthers.

Have the Panthers righted the ship? That’s the biggest question right now in Steeltown, and it is certainly one that is up for debate. Pittsburgh has won its last two games, but there is a real question as to whether those wins against Gardner Webb and Virginia Tech were really good enough to get this team going for the rest of the campaign.

USC vs Utah Pick

Week 6 of the college football betting season starts on Thursday night, and the showcase game of a big time three-pack pits the Southern Cal Trojans against the Utah Utes at Rice Eccles Stadium.

With names like QB Matt Barkley, RB Silas Redd, RB Curtis McNeal, WR Marqise Lee, and WR Robert Woods, the Trojans really shouldn’t be struggling offensively at all.

Ten Betting Tips: College Football Betting Bits To Watch For Week 6

After another great week of the college football betting season, we are back for Week 6, as we look at the top teams, players, and trends of note for the this week on NCAA football schedule.

There is a new clear cut favorite on the odds to win the Heisman Trophy this year, and that man is QB Geno Smith for the West Virginia Mountaineers. Smith threw for a whopping 656 yards and eight scores in last week’s win over the Baylor Bears. Now, he has his biggest challenge of the year to date, and maybe his biggest challenge period.

Oregon vs. Washington State Picks

The newly anointed No. 2 team in the country will engage in NCAA football betting action in the final kickoff of the night on Saturday, when the Oregon Ducks battle the Washington State Cougars.

The Ducks are flying all over the field, but it was their defense that made headlines last week when they shut out the Arizona Wildcats 49-0. It was one of the most impressive displays that any team has come up with this year, though both the Cats and the Ducks know that there should have been a heck of a lot more on the board in terms of points.

Wisconsin vs Nebraska Pick

Big Ten foes that very well could be playing in the conference title game this year will meet for the second time ever and the first in Lincoln on Saturday night, where the Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Wisconsin Badgers.

The truth of the matter is that the season starts right now for the Badgers. All that we learned in the first month of the year about Wisky is that it just isn’t all that great.

Texas vs Oklahoma State Pick

The early advantage in the Big XII will be handed out on Saturday night at Boone Pickens Stadium, where the college football odds will be contested between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Longhorns.

The Horns have been awesome all year long, but this is really going to be their first massive test. Head Coach Mack Brown will be quick to point out the fact that the Ole Miss Rebels team that his squad blew out two weeks ago is a 3-1 team and the Wyoming Cowboys that his team beat to start the year did win eight games in 2011.

Hawaii vs. BYU Picks

Teams that have the ability to score points in bunches are going to be duking it out on Friday night in NCAA football betting action, as the BYU Cougars take on the Hawaii Warriors at Lavell Edwards Stadium.

The Warriors have had a frustrating season, and matters just don’t seem to be getting any better any time in the near future. They aren’t nearly the offense juggernauts that they once were, and they are still struggling defensively.
