With Iowa football on their second bye, fans turn their attention to the other games. Here’s where to put your rooting interests and your betting money.
Some sad news for the segment last week. One of the betting constants this year is no longer valid.
Rutgers, the FCS team that plays a Power 5 schedule, not only beat the spread in their game against Liberty but also won the game outright.
Heisman watch quarterback Brock Purdy threw a game-winning touchdown to Oklahoma State. Also, Penn State might be the only Big Ten team to have a chance against the Buckeyes.
Finally, Auburn found a way to make their game against LSU look closer than it was.
On the positive of things, no one needs to worry about having to watch Clemson or an SEC team have their way against Notre Dame in the playoff. Thank you, Michigan.
Also, preseason Big Ten West favorites, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, lost to Indiana at home on their homecoming. This is about as good as any time to remind you that Nebraska’s athletic director fired Bo Pelini for consistently winning only nine games and losing four games in a season.
The loss to Indiana was their fourth loss this season, and Nebraska still plays Wisconsin and the Iowa football team this year, so winning nine games is improbable for Nebraska this season. For Iowa football fans getting frustrated with the Hawkeye’s performance, please remember Bo Pelini.
This week’s segment is going to focus on the normal types of games with two ranked teams and Big Ten teams. However, we also want to focus on the teams that play unranked teams that could lose, since there’s a trend of that happening.
