Oklahoma State -2 over Miami (win)
Miami is coming off their worst defensive performance in school history as they allowed UNC to pile up 778 yards off offense. To make matters worse the top pass rushers in Jordan Phillips and Quincy Roche opted out for the NFL Draft. Oklahoma State has their own opt outs, but they can run the ball well and I believe are more capable on the defensive side of the ball. This is a really good Cowboys Defense full of veterans. Oklahoma State is good against the run and great against the pass. This is the #2 team in nation at stopping teams on third down. Miami lacks focus and can’t go on long drives. The Canes Offensive Line is weak and the only way this team scores is when they hit the big strike play. If those big plays are not there this team struggles and when they get down the mistakes pile on. Take Oklahoma State.

USF +9.5 over Memphis (win)
The FedEx Forum is one of the toughest buildings to play in, but in a pandemic year that advantage goes out the window. USF has the more experienced team and I believe guys like David Collins, Justin Brown and Alexis Yetna will be able to put up points on this Memphis team. The Tigers just don’t have the scoring power to be such big favorites and I don’t think they will blow out this physical Bulls team. USF should be able to get second chances on the offensive glass tonight and have the shot at the upset. Take USF.
