CRIS Opener:
Washington -5.5 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: Washington -3.5 O/U 53
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Washington -0.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Boise State

The Washington Huskies will play their first game in newly renovated Husky Stadium on Saturday night as they host the Boise State Broncos in a rematch of last year’s Las Vegas Bowl. Boise won that game 28-26 but failed to cover as 4.5-point favorites.

The Broncos will have quarterback Joe Southwick back for his second year as the starter. He started out slowly last year but gradually improved as the season progressed throwing for 2,730 yards on 66.8% completions and a 19-7 TD-INT ratio. He will have his top two receiving targets back in Matt Miller and Kirby Moore who combined for 102 receptions, more than 1,100 yards, and 6 TDs last season. They did lose their top Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Northwestern Wildcats at California Golden Bears

Northwestern at California
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Northwestern -3 O/U 58.5
CRIS Current: Northwestern -5 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Northwestern -5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Northwestern

When Washington State went from good to mediocre to awful in the PAC-12, it happened rather predictably.  Mike Price had success in Pullman, albeit not every year, and he left the cupboard full for his successor, Bill Doba, when Price took the Alabama job.  Doba won ten games in his first year, and the Cougars enjoyed their third consecutive top 10 ranking at the close of the season following an upset win over Texas in the Holiday Bowl.

But Doba was not the right hire; unable to recruit (or coach) the way Price did.  Washington State quickly went from a top 10 program three years running to a squad that was struggling to reach .500 every year: 5-6, 4-7, Read more

NCAA Football Betting Trends: Washington-Boise State rematch

08.28.2013     07:45 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Boise State at Washington -3.5 O/U 52.5

Not a huge sample size but worth noting: Home favorites facing teams they lost to in a bowl game the previous season are 7-1 SU but only 1-6-1 ATS. The margins are those eight games were 10, 3, 10, 4, 5, 3, 1, and 13. Saturday's Washington-Boise State game fits those parameters. The Broncos beat the Huskies 28-26 in the Las Vegas Bowl. UW is currently a 3.5-point home favorite.

College Football Handicapping: It's Hal Mumme time for SMU Mustangs

08.28.2013     06:57 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
If you're wondering how SMU is going to look under first-year offensive coordinator Hal Mumme, this quote pretty much sums it up...

“Well, if we take a vote on what we do, it’s going to be pass, I promise you that. It will be 2-0 pass,” said Hal Mumme, the new passing game coordinator for sixth-year Mustangs coach June Jones. “If I don’t want to throw it, I’ll probably look at June and say what do you want to do, and he’ll say why don’t we throw it.”

College Football Betting: Florida International is probably going to be awful

Florida International at Maryland -22 O/U 49.5

You don't have to be a seasoned veteran to spot that Florida International is in for a world of hurt this season. The decision to remove Mario Cristobal and bring in Ron Turner has the potential to be on the Dan Hawkins-to-Colorado or Ellis Johnson-to-Southern Miss level. At 60 years old, with little to no track record of success at the college level (35-57 career record), Turner all of a sudden walks into a dicey situation where there is actually work to be done. The Panthers return only eight starters and are stepping up in class from the Sun Belt to C-USA. I'm obviously not the only one that has caught a whiff of this rotting corpse of a program. Last season, with 17 returning starters and off a program high 8-win season, FIU was catching +3 at Duke. This year, they Read more

NCAA Football Gambling: Louisiana Tech's Holtz tries to embrace unknowns

Louisiana Tech at NC State -13.5 O/U 62.5

Here's the transcript of Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz's weekly press conference. There are a lot of good nuggets and Holtz isn’t shy about his team’s youth and inexperience.

"I think this is going to be a great learning curve for us. How it is going to play out with two new head coaches and a lot of unknowns in this game with new guys playing in this game on both sides of the ball. I think for us right now, it is all about putting our best foot forward and putting our best team out there Saturday and see where we are.

"They say the progress you make from game one to game two is normally the biggest jump you are going to make as a football team, so for me, I am excited to watch this team play. I am

College Football Handicapping: Colorado looks to go up-tempo

08.27.2013     01:56 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Article on Colorado first-year head coach Mike MacIntyre's no-huddle, spread offense. At San Jose State, MacIntyre's offense averaged 446.2 ypg and 70 plays per game in 2012. But that was his third year on the job. In his first season, the Spartans averaged 315.1 ypg (101st nationally). As always, be sure to take a wait-and-see approach with these lower-tier BCS conference schools with poor defenses trying to make a go of it with up-tempo systems.

"I would like to think it's pretty modern with a little tradition mixed in," CU offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren said. "It's a good mix."

"I've always kind of described it as a multiple no-huddle, meaning that we don't just stay in one personnel group," Lindgren said. "We'll move personnel groups but we're doing it from a no huddle. We'll mix some shifts and motions in and you can kind of see different blends and elements. Some pro-style elements, some spread elements to it. I like to be multiple because we can take advantage of what we've got
