Connecticut Huskies at Central Florida Knights (-23, 52.5)
Connecticut has been unable to find any kind of rhythm offensively. After head coach Paul Pasqualoni was fired on Sept. 30, interim coach T.J. Weist plugged in freshman quarterback Tim Boyle. In two games, he's led the Huskies to just 26 points - including a 41-16 loss to Cincinnati last week.
The Knights, ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since 2010, are led by efficient quarterback Blake Bortles. His 64.9 percent completion rate and 11-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio are large reasons why Central Florida ranks 46th in the nation in passing offense.
LINE: The Knights opened as 22.5-point home faves and are now -23. The total opened at 52.5.
WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the low-70s with wind blowing toward the S endzone at 7 mph.
* Huskies are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven road games.
* Knights are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.
* Under is 11-5 in Knights last 16 home games.
