    That ND line seems low. Am I crazy?

    It's a true road game.

    The one that surprised me was Colorado being so heavily favored over CSU at a neutral site.

    Just had a bunch of suspensions.

    Steak, I'm pretty sure Tech-BC is a Saturday game.

    It is. I left it off my initial list and then went back and added it in the wrong place.

    Thanks. Fixed.

    Kinda surprised to see UGA favored by 3. New coach, likely starting a freshman QB against a pretty good defense. Not to mention Georgia's D-line is a bit of a mess and UNC has one of the ACC's best running backs. Also, Nick Chubb is coming off a pretty serious knee injury. If I were a betting man, I'd take those freebie points.

    Even assuming Auburn coats the field in Quaker State, I don't see how it stays within single digits of Clemson.

    Once again, thanks for doing these each week, steak.

    Of the two LA-area teams playing in Texas this weekend, I like the Bruins' chances.

    What do Clemson, Florida State, USC, UCLA, Wisconsin and North Carolina have in common?

    Week 1 opponents for SEC schools, who never play anyone tough OOC.
