UTSA +3.5 over WKU (win)
Both teams have been impressive this year. Who knew Houston Baptist had so many great transfers, but Bailey Zappe has been excellent at QB, Jerreth Sterns catches everything thrown his way. This team is fun to watch but faces a Roadrunners team that is at its peak when it comes to talent and senior leadership. There aren’t many teams that have this type of experience together, and tonight, it’s essential for this group to go out with a championship. UTSA has a great ground attack that can keep Zappe off the field, and on defense has talent up and down the depth chart at all three levels. The Roadrunners should control the line of scrimmage and win the CUSA Title tonight. Take UTSA.

Utah -3 over Oregon (win)
Kyle Whittingham always does a great job coaching, and now the Utes have a QB in Cameron Rising who is a lot more mature and talented than a freshman QB. The Utes dominated the meeting between these two teams earlier this year and were up 28-0 at the half. Oregon has been hit hard this year by the injury bug at the skilled position as they are missing their best running back and two 100 plus reception wide receivers. Utah is the more physical team that should dominate the time of possession and hit receivers by being balanced on offense. Utah is better in the trenches and should dominate yet again. Take the Utes.

Notre Dame -5 over Boston College (loss)
Notre Dame proved they could hang with just about any team as they went to Illinois and played well against a tough Illini team, with Kofi Cockburn dominating the sport of college basketball. The Irish lost that game, but they have an incredible roster that should outwork coach Earl Grant who is working in his first year with the BC program. Last year, Boston College was a bad team in the ACC and lost 4 of their top 5 players. The Irish bring back their top leaders from last year and should have no problem putting this Eagles team away. Take Notre Dame.
