UNC vs Notre Dame

College Football
1:00 PM EST
Rotation #147-148
Nebraska/Iowa Over 53.5 (loss)
Iowa has a top notch offensive line and great running backs.  You know what they are going to do and yet they can’t be stopped.  Nebraska just does not have the rush defense to slow this team down.  Spencer Petras has looked good at QB and this year Iowa has a ton of talent at the receiver position.   I don’t think their offense gets stopped today.  Nebraska has some talent on offense and have two QB’s that can be hit or miss, but this is an Iowa Defense that might not be as powerful as they have in the past and teams can move the ball on them.  Nebraska needs to go for explosive plays and if they can connect might make this game close.  Take the Over.

Rotation #135
Notre Dame -6 over UNC (win)
UNC is a flashy team on offense, but they don’t have the best defense in the world.  You are not going to beat top quality football teams by outscoring them.  In order to pull an upset you have to make multiple stops and we have seen this year that UNC is absolutely awful against mobile QB’s.  Notre Dame is going to control the clock and control the game.  UNC is fun to watch, but they just are not on the same level.  Notre Dame doesn’t have the best offense in the world and they do have injuries on the offensive line, but I just don’t see this team losing until a quality defense gets in their way.  Ian Book will run plays for Brian Kelly that keeps Sam Howell and that high powered offense on their sideline waiting to get into the game.  Take Notre Dame.

Rotation #657
Colorado -6 over Kansas State (win)
Kansas State had a tough year in 2019 and now in 2020 lost a lot of their offense and don’t have many players who can distribute the basketball.  Colorado has a ton of players that share the ball and they are actually a bigger and more physical version of the Drake team that just beat the Wildcats.  McKinley Wright, D’shawn Schwartz and Evan Battey should get a lot of easy buckets today against a Kansas State team that doesn’t know how to play defense yet.  Take Colorado.
