College Football Handicapping: BYU staff will coach bowl game despite move to Virginia

12.10.2015     08:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
BYU's coaching situation continues to interest us as Bronco Mendenhall announced that he'll be taking three assistants with him to Virginia. This includes offensive coordinator Robert Anae who was somewhat miffed he wasn't on the university's radar to take over for Mendenhall. And then you have another "popular" assistant who was left behind because there was "no room" on the new UVA staff. Despite all of the drama, the staff will remain in place for BYU's Las Vegas Bowl matchup vs. Utah.

 

“I’m very proud of the work we did at BYU with the offense after many challenges we faced and I’m excited to have this bunch (coaches) follow me to the new opportunity.”

College Football Betting: Utah felt it deserved better than Las Vegas Bowl

12.09.2015     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Utah doesn't sound all that excited to be playing in the Las Vegas Bowl for the second straight year despite drawing in-state rival BYU. Head coach Kyle Whittingham felt his team deserved a more high profile bowl. Oregon, who the Utes crushed in Eugene, drew a berth in the Alamo Bowl vs. No. 11 TCU on January 2.


"We had the best record in the South, overall, and the second-best record in the conference overall — were tied with Oregon but we beat them head-to-head — so that being the case, and then being in the sixth bowl, that was, that was unique," he said. "So we'll leave it at that, I guess."

College Football Gambling: Mountain West has dominated MAC in recent Potato Bowl meetings

12.08.2015     09:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A few things to consider for this year's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl between the MAC's Akron and Mountain West's Utah State. The Zips are obviously excited to be bowling having not been to the postseason since 2005. Akron closed out the season with four straight wins and covers, albeit against teams that combined to finish 17 games below .500. Utah State was the complete opposite as it lost four of its last six with only one pointspread cover during that span. Recent history of the Potato Bowl shows a lot of success for the MWC with threes straight wins and covers by an average of just over three touchdowns. USU is currently a -6.5 favorite.

2014 - Air Force vs. Western Michigan
Result: Air Force actually went off as a short +2.5 underdog but pulled away in the fourth quarter en route to a 38-24 win.

2013 - San Diego State vs. Buffalo
Result: Another situation where the Mountain West entrant went off a short underdog but cruised to victory. The Aztecs (+1) outgained the Bulls by 160 yards in the 49-24 win.

2012 - Utah State vs. Toledo
Result: This was a weird one as midway through the Read more

College Football Betting: Banged up Baylor looking forward to matchup vs. North Carolina

12.08.2015     06:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's college football bowl season and that means trying to decipher the level of motivation for team relegated to lesser bowl games. A month ago, Baylor was thinking playoffs but after a slew of quarterback injuries and back-to-back losses the Bears find themselves playing prior to New Year's Day. The good news is their opponent, No. 10 North Carolina, has their attention. The bad news is they're down to their third-string quarterback who suffered a concussion in last week's loss to Texas. Baylor is currently a -3 favorite vs. UNC.


“We could go to a bunch of bowl games this year and we’d have a hard time finding many more quality opponents than North Carolina,” Briles said. “That’s the reality of it. They deserve where they’re at. I don’t think motivation is an issue at all.”

“Next Monday we’ll know a lot more,” Briles said. “He’s going to have a bone scan. If it shows where it’s healed, then I

College Football Handicapping: A look back at Season Over/Under Wins

12.07.2015     08:06 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A quick look back at some of college football's biggest under and overachievers from a regular season over/under wins perspective. Original lines courtesy of CG Technology.

Florida
Season Over/Under Wins: 7ov-130
Regular Season Wins: 10
Storyline: A couple of close wins and down seasons by a majority of the SEC East helped the Gators pop for 10 wins. They were only a modest +0.37 yards per play vs. SEC foes.

Georgia Tech
Season Over/Under Wins: 7.5ov-140
Regular Season Wins: 3
Storyline: A shoddy offensive line and decline in skill position talent led to Paul Johnson's worst season in Atlanta. After posting the nation's top third down conversion rate in 2014 (57.9%) the Yellow Jackets plummeted to 108th (34.9%).

Iowa
Season Over/Under Wins: 7.5un-120
Regular Season Wins: 12
Storyline: Buoyed by one of the easiest regular season conference schedules in the country (avoided Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, and Ohio State) and a +12 turnover margin, the Hawkeyes were one win away from making the Playoffs.

AAC Championship Betting Preview: Temple Owls at Houston Cougars

12.04.2015     10:52 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Temple at Houston
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Houston -6.5 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Houston -5.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Temple

Houston played a near perfect game last Friday against Navy; executing brilliantly on both sides of the football.  QB Greg Ward, who had been banged up, on the field for only a single series the previous week in a loss at UConn, played the game of his life.  Houston converted on 16 of their 19 third down tries, while going 2-for-2 on fourth down, thanks to one perfectly placed pass after the next from the junior converted wide receiver.  Ward finished the game 26-for-35 for 308 yards and three touchdowns, and he scampered for 83 more yards on the ground.  The Cougars didn’t commit a single turnover and they scored touchdowns on seven of their nine possessions.

That ain’t gonna happen this week; not against Temple’s stout stop unit.  Navy’s effort was there last week, but their talent level, team speed and execution were not.  Temple has no issues whatsoever in any of those three areas.  The Owls have a Read more
