Air Force Falcons at Colorado State Rams (-16.5)

ATS pick: Air Force

Colorado State was rolling behind a high-flying offense led by Mountain West rushing leader Kapri Bibbs, but the offensive mojo came crashing down in a shutout loss at Utah State. Now Bibbs and three other key starters may miss Saturday's game against an Air Force squad that's not overly talented but can still score and won't lay down against a Front Range rival even after nine losses.

Score: Colorado State 35, Air Force 28

No. 2 Florida State Seminoles at Florida Gators
Saturday at 12 p.m. ET, ESPN


Last year the Seminoles turned over the ball five times, and their 20-13 lead turned into a 37-26 loss to the Gators. However, this year these two teams could not be further apart and last week was a great example. While unbeaten Florida State annihilated Idaho 80-14 (the Seminoles' 10th win by 27 points or more this year), Florida lost to FCS Georgia Southern 26-20, ending its 22-year bowl streak. Numerous injuries and a tough schedule have played a part in the Gators' losing six straight games, but head coach Will Muschamp deserves some heat for the team's underperformance. While the Seminoles are dealing with quarterback Jameis Winston's off-field issues, it certainly has not affected their performance as they have outscored their past three opponents by a combined 198-20. FSU should win easily here.

Pick: Florida State 38, Florida 10

No. 24 Duke Blue Devils at North Carolina Tar Heels
Saturday at 12 p.m. ET, ESPN2


A Duke-North Carolina game with ACC championship implications usually doesn't take place until March on the hardwood, but here we are in late November with Duke gunning for its first-ever 10-win season and Coastal Division title. The Tar Heels have owned the series, winning 21 of the past 23 games, but one of those losses came last year. Both teams are red hot as North Carolina has won five straight since starting the season 1-5, while Duke has won seven in a row. Despite their gaudy record it should be noted that the Blue Devils are getting outgained in ACC play by 49 yards per game, while the Tar Heels are beating foes by 18 points per game at home. While it has been a great story, the Tar Heels are simply the more talented team playing with revenge and momentum.

Pick: North Carolina 34, Duke 26

Penn State Nittany Lions at Wisconsin Badgers (-24.5, 49.5)

Zach Zwinak had 149 rushing yards in last Saturday’s 23-20 loss to Nebraska and has put together three consecutive 100-yard outings to push his season total to 874 yards. Freshman quarterback Christian Hackenberg has fared well with 2,616 yards – fifth most in school history – and has 16 touchdown passes against 10 interceptions.

A strong defense that ranks fifth in scoring defense (13.4) and sixth in total defense (278.5) complements the rushing attack that is 34 yards away from surpassing last season’s school record for rushing yards (3,309). Star linebacker Chris Borland is eight tackles away from his third consecutive 100-tackle campaign and ranks sixth in school history with 400 stops while equaling the Big Ten record with 14 career forced fumbles.

LINE: Wisconsin is a 24.5-point fave after opening at -23.5. The total is set at 49 1/2.
WEATHER: Temperatures will be in the low-30s with wind blowing diagonally out of the SW at 7 mph.
TRENDS:

* Nittany Lions are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following a SU loss.
* Badgers are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 games on fieldturf.
* Favorite is 8-0 ATS in the last eight meetings.

Arizona Wildcats at No. 12 Arizona State Sun Devils
Saturday at 9:30 p.m. ET

The visiting team has actually won the past four games despite the home team having the yardage edge in each of those games. Both teams are coming off arguably their biggest wins in at least a decade, as Arizona pulled a shocker over Oregon and Arizona State clinched the Pac-12 South title with its win against UCLA. This game still has plenty of meaning for the Sun Devils, though, as a win gives them home-field advantage over Stanford in next week's championship game. They have been dominant at home this year, outgaining their opponents by 173 yards per game, but Arizona is a respectable plus-83 yards per game on the road and will keep it close until late.

Pick: Arizona State 38, Arizona 28
