    [B][I]UNC at Pittsburgh
    November 7, 2017[/I][/B]

    While Thursday’s ACC matchup isn’t going to make a dent on the national scene or even the ACC standings, North Carolina and Pittsburgh have played four consecutive tight games as ACC foes including one of the better games of the season last year.

    Two teams in disappointing seasons look for a big late season win in Thursday’s national TV game to start the college football weekend.

    [B]Matchup: North Carolina Tar Heels at Pittsburgh Panthers
    Venue: At Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
    Time/TV: Thursday, Nov. 9, 7:30 PM ET ESPN
    Line: Pittsburgh -9, Over/Under 52½
    Last Meeting: 2016, at North Carolina (-7) 37, Pittsburgh 36[/B]

    Since Pittsburgh joined the ACC in 2013 the matchup with North Carolina has been an entertaining series with four single-score results and an average of more than 63 points scored per game. The past two seasons this Coastal matchup has carried some weight with both teams in the division race as these teams combined to go 24-9 in ACC games in 2015 and 2016, with North Carolina appearing in the ACC championship in the 2015 season. North Carolina sits at 0-6 in ACC play this season while Pittsburgh is just 2-3 as it has been step-back season for both programs.

    A North Carolina program that was routinely stocked with NFL talent but seemed to plateau at 7 or 8 wins in the best years in the 2000s finally had a breakthrough season in 2015, going 11-1 in the regular season and giving Clemson a great game in the ACC championship. The Tar Heels fell back to a modestly successful 8-5 campaign last season and in Larry Fedora’s sixth season in Chapel Hill very little has gone right.

    The Tar Heels had to replace the #2 pick in the NFL draft at quarterback and it has been a challenge to replace Mitch Trubisky. Former LSU quarterback Brandon Harris was expected to lead the team but after early season struggles, freshman Chazz Surratt has been the team’s main quarterback. Sophomore Nathan Elliott took the bulk of the snaps two weeks ago in the narrow homecoming loss to Miami after Surratt was injured however as it isn’t clear what will happen under center this week.

    The Tar Heels were a great rushing team two years ago posting 6.0 yards per rush and still a decent ground team last season. This year’s team has gained just 3.8 yards per carry as the poor quarterback play has deteriorated the potential of the entire offense. Sophomore Jordon Brown leads the team in carries and yards but freshman Michael Carter has been a big play threat with seven touchdowns on 6.0 yards per carry.

    Ryan Switzer had 96 catches for the Tar Heels last season as Trubisky’s favorite target but this year’s team lacks a receiver with more than 20 catches. Brown has 24 catches out of the backfield but the young receiving corps has struggled with the lack of consistency at quarterback and the unit has been beset with several injuries including losing four scholarship receivers to season-ending injuries.

    North Carolina is surrendering 33.4 points per game on 447 yards per game ranking 104th nationally in scoring defense and 111th in total defense. The Tar Heels have surrendered 205 yards per game rushing this season on 4.6 yards per carry. The secondary has lost two starters to injury as well as it has been a tough-luck season for the North Carolina roster.

    North Carolina has also taken on one of the nation’s most difficult schedules playing non-conference games with California and Notre Dame to add to the 1-8 record on the season. From the Atlantic the Tar Heels played Louisville in September and will face NC State in the season finale for a difficult crossover pull.

    While North Carolina doesn’t have a bowl game to play for the Tar Heels have an opportunity on a national stage this week and certainly this is a team that can perform at a higher level than the 1-8 record indicates. Five losses have been decided by 12 or fewer points and the 24-19 late October loss to undefeated Miami shows the potential of this group. Despite playing most of the game with an inexperienced third-string quarterback, North Carolina out-gained Miami 428-415 and might have won if not for four turnovers.

    Pittsburgh started the season needing overtime to defeat FCS Youngstown State and most of the first half of the season was a struggle with the Panthers going 2-5 in the first seven games. Pittsburgh played Penn State and Oklahoma State in non-conference action for a very difficult start to the season but with wins in the final two games of October the Panthers are 4-5 and still have bowl aspirations.

    This looks like a must-win game in the postseason goal as the Panthers will close the regular season with games against the top two ACC Coastal squads, at Virginia Tech next week and closing the season lurking as a potential spoiler hosting undefeated Miami.

    The Panthers also had to replace a NFL quarterback with Nathan Peterman drafted by the Bills in the fifth round. Peterman actually led the ACC in quarterback rating last season ahead of Trubiksy and Deshaun Watson and he was a key to the success the Panthers have had in Pat Narduzzi’s first two seasons at Pittsburgh with matching 8-5 campaigns and winning ACC seasons.

    Pittsburgh thought they had a quick-fix replacement at quarterback with USC transfer Max Browne. Once the most sought after high school quarterback in the nation, Browne struggled as the USC starter early last season facing great expectations. With Sam Darnold clearly establishing himself he looked for another opportunity and wound up at Pittsburgh. His senior season hasn’t worked out as planned who began to split time with sophomore Ben DiNucci after the 1-2 start to the season and then Browne suffered a season ending injury in early October.

    DiNucci’s numbers haven’t been stronger than Browne’s even through a lighter schedule but the Panthers are playing better ball in recent weeks. Pittsburgh also lost top running back James Conner to the NFL and the rushing attack took awhile to develop this season. Moving junior Darrin Hall into a more prominent role has paid dividends as he rushed for 365 yards in the wins over Duke and Virginia with four touchdowns.

    Pittsburgh’s defensive numbers are only slightly better than the numbers for North Carolina though allowing 92 points in the losses to Penn State and Oklahoma State skew the numbers a bit. In ACC play Pittsburgh has allowed 25.6 points per game compared to 35.0 points per game allowed by North Carolina. Pittsburgh’s run defense was a strength last season allowing only 3.6 yards per rush despite deficiencies against the pass but this year the Panthers have shown improvement against the pass but are allowing 4.5 yards per rush.

    Both teams entered this season appearing to head towards rebuilding seasons and certainly Pittsburgh has had a better run towards that aim heading into the final three weeks. A win this week and an upset in one of the final two games can get the Panthers into a bowl game for a 10th consecutive season. For North Carolina this is an opportunity to avoid a winless ACC season with a tough finale at NC State as the only other opportunity. For two teams caught in the middle of the ACC pecking order in now a wide swath of recruiting territory in a 14-team conference, any positive national TV exposure can help the cause.

    Last Season: These teams met in late September in Chapel Hill for an early ACC opener. Both teams were 2-1 with North Carolina losing to Georgia but Beating Illinois and James Madison. Pittsburgh had a marquee win over Penn State but had lost in a shootout with Oklahoma State the previous week. A game that ended with 73 points actually started with a safety and a 50-yard field goal as Pittsburgh led 5-0 at the end of the first quarter. Early in the second half Pittsburgh still had a slight advantage with a 26-16 lead and the Panthers appeared on their way to victory after a fourth quarter field goal made the score 36-23 and the Pittsburgh defense forced a 3-and-out. Pittsburgh had to punt back to the Tar Heels halfway through the final frame and a marginal punt with a strong return shifted momentum back to the Tar Heels. Trubisky converted a big 4th down play with about six minutes remaining and eventually put the Tar Heels in the end zone to close to within six. Conner and Peterman weren’t able to pick up a first down and Trubisky led one of the drives of the season needing 17 plays and three 4th down conversions to eventually score with two seconds remaining for a one-point win.

    Historical Trends:[/B]

    — North Carolina has won all four meetings as ACC Coastal foes with last season’s one-point win the only missed cover.

    — Since 1982 North Carolina is 6-2 S/U and ATS in this series though Pittsburgh won the only postseason meeting with a 2009 Meineke Car Care Bowl win.

    — North Carolina is 11-7 S/U and ATS in road games since 2014 and riding a 15-11-1 ATS run when dogged by 7 or more points going back to 2006.

    — Pittsburgh is just 5-14-2 ATS as a home favorite since 2013, though splitting the two instances this season.

    — Since 2013 Pittsburgh is also just 4-11-1 ATS as a favorite of 7 or more points though losing S/U just twice in that span.

    [B][I]Childers’ 4 TD passes help N. Illinois beat Ball St., 63-17
    November 9, 2017[/I][/B]

    DEKALB, Ill. (AP) Marcus Childers threw a career-high four touchdown passes and Jackson Abresch scored twice on blocked punts to help Northern Illinois beat Ball State 63-17 on Thursday night.

    Sutton Smith, who came in leading the FBS with 20 tackles for losses this season, had two Thursday to set the Northern Illinois single-season record. The Huskies (7-3, 5-1 Mid-American Conference) finished with a school-record 18 TFLs (the most in an FBS game this season), including a season-high-tying seven sacks.

    Childers threw touchdown passes to Shane Wimann and Jordan Huff before Trayshon Foster blocked a punt which Jackson Abresch returned 13 yards for a score to make it 21-7 at the end of the first quarter. Jauan Wesley blocked another Ball State (2-8, 0-6) punt, from inside its own end zone, and Abresch covered it to cap the scoring with 4:18 to play. The Huskies have blocked four punts in their last three games.

    Drew Plitt, Ball State’s fourth-string quarterback, made his second career start and completed 9 of 14 passes for 89 yards and a score before being replaced by Jack Milas at halftime.

    Northern Illinois has won nine in a row against the Cardinals.

    [B][I]Lamb, Appalachian State beat Georgia Southern 27-6
    November 9, 2017[/I][/B]

    BOONE, N.C. (AP) Taylor Lamb threw two touchdown passes and Jalin Moore had 28 carries for 130 yards to help Appalachian State beat Georgia Southern 27-6 on Thursday night.

    Lamb was 7-of-13 passing for 161 yards and added 62 yards rushing on five carries for Appalachian State (6-4, 5-1 Sun Belt Conference).

    Collin Reed’s 23-yard touchdown reception gave the Mountaineers their first lead midway through the second quarter and freshman Chandler Staton hit a career-long 53-yard field goal as time in the first half expired to make it 10-3.

    On Appalachian State’s first play from scrimmage in the second half, Lamb hit Thomas Hennigan for a 51-yard gain to set up a 28-yard field goal by Staton. Georgia Southern (0-9, 0-5) answered with an 11-play, 36-yard drive capped by Tyler Bass’ 44-yard field goal to make it 13-6 late in the third quarter.

    On Appalachian State’s next possession, defensive end Caleb Fuller, on fourth-and-1 from midfield, ran 23 yards on a fake punt and, three plays later, Lamb hit Ike Lewis for a 20-yard touchdown. The Eagles went three-and-out on their ensuing drive and, after Lamb connected with Lewis for a 30-yard gain on fourth-and-6, Daetrich Harrington’s 3-yard scoring run capped the scoring with 9:40 to go.

    [B][I]Ratliff-Williams stars as North Carolina trips up Pitt 34-31
    November 9, 2017[/I][/B]

    PITTSBURGH (AP) Anthony Ratliff-Williams returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown, threw for another on a trick play and hauled in the eventual go-ahead score midway through the fourth quarter to lift North Carolina to a 34-31 over Pittsburgh on Thursday night.

    Ratliff-Williams accounted for 230 all-purpose yards for the Tar Heels (2-8, 1-6 Atlantic Coast Conference), who ended a six-game losing streak by rallying repeatedly against the Panthers. Nathan Elliott completed 20 of 31 passes for 235 yards and two scores in his first start for North Carolina, which beat the Panthers for the fifth straight time thanks to Ratliff-Williams’ playmaking.

    Darrin Hall ran for 121 yards and four touchdowns for Pitt (4-6, 2-4), but the Panthers saw their modest two-game winning streak come to an end and now face an uphill battle if they want to lock down a bowl berth for a 10th consecutive year. Pitt finishes the regular season against No. 17 Virginia Tech and No. 7 Miami.

    North Carolina has struggled this season thanks in large part to an avalanche of injuries, including one to freshman quarterback Chazz Surratt last month against the Hurricanes that forced Elliott to get extensive playing time.

    Elliott more than held his own against the Panthers, though it was Ratliff-Williams who did the majority of the damage. He took the opening kick and broke through several arm tackles while racing down the sideline for a 98-yard touchdown to give the Tar Heels the lead just 16 seconds in. He floated a 35-yard score to Josh Cabrera in the second quarter then hauled home on the winning score on a 3-yard flip from Elliott with 6:18 to go.

    The Panthers responded repeatedly behind Hall, whose four touchdowns were the most by a Pitt player since James Conner scored four times against the Tar Heels in 2014. The Panthers lost that afternoon and fell again when quarterback Ben DiNucci couldn’t get Pitt past midfield on the possession after Ratliff-Williams’ touchdown grab.

    Pitt punted with 2:54 to go and three timeouts but never got the ball back.

    [B]THE TAKEAWAY[/B]

    UNC: Elliott likely deserves another look. The sophomore needs work as a passer but his mobility kept Pitt’s improved pass rush in check for long stretches. He was at his best late while leading the Tar Heels on the late drive that put them ahead to stay.

    Pitt: The Panthers are going to need something miraculous to keep their bowl streak alive. Virginia Tech and Miami will both have something significant to play for and Pitt will need to win both if it wants to extend its’ season beyond the day after Thanksgiving.

    Pitt: travels to No. 17 Virginia Tech on Nov. 18.

    Friday’s List of 13: Random stuff with weekend here…….[/I][/B]

    13) I’m tired of writing about lawyers; Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension finally kicks in this week- he is out for the Cowboys’ next six games, which are against:

    Atlanta-Eagles-Chargers-Redskins-Giants-Raiders.

    Dallas is 5-3, currently tied for the second Wild Card spot in the NFC.

    12) Interesting article on CBSSports.com Thursday about North Carolina’s Theo Pinson, a senior who is the only top 15 recruit from the Class of 2014 who is still in college.

    12 of the other 14 went to the NBA one year after graduating high school; one other played two years of college, another played three years of college.

    11) Baseball’s offseason will be fascinating, but what I don’t want to read are articles where the author guesses what will happen. Let us know when real news occurs.

    10) 149 ballplayers became free agents this week; they don’t have to file for free agency anymore. Players can start negotiating with other teams next week; they can negotiate with the current team from now until Tuesday.

    9) Jeff Van Gundy was saying on ESPN the other night that NBA games are being officiated much better this season than in previous years. Interesting comment- the flow of games is a lot better, this I know from watching games on League Pass every night.

    8) Free agent OF Jay Bruce will be asking for a 5-year deal in the $80-90M range; sounds like agent Scott Boras might ask for a $200M deal for free agent OF JD Martinez.

    7) Lonzo Ball is struggling with his shooting; he is 11-47 outside the arc (23.4%), 24-70 inside the arc (34.3%), 7-13 on the foul line. Not good.

    Ball shot 41.2% behind the (college) arc last year at UCLA, he shot 67.3% on the foul line. Still think he’s going to be a very good NBA player, but the shooting does need to improve.

    6) Duke’s pre-conference schedule is a little shaky; they play Michigan State in Chicago, and they go to Indiana in the ACC/Big 14 Challenge, but other than that, here is who they play:

    Elon-Utah Valley-Michigan State-Southern-Furman-Portland St-Indiana-South Dakota, St Francis, not exactly a murderer’s row of a pre-conference schedule.

    5) The night Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points for the Philadelphia Warriors in 1962, former Golden State coach Al Attles scored 17 points, the next-highest amount for the Warriors. Attles is 81 years old now and was at the Minnesota-Golden State game in Oakland Wednesday.

    4) Sounds like the Bulls will likely choose Bobby Portis over Nikola Mirotic when it comes to getting rid of one of the two players who got into a fight in practice, which resulted in Mirotic breaking his cheekbone. Problem is, Bulls can’t trade Mirotic until Jan 15, and he is expected to be ready to play before then, so much like Eric Bledsoe with the Suns, Mirotic is likely to sit idle for a while after he is healthy, until he can be traded.

    3) Wisconsin’s leading WR, Quintez Cephus is done for the season with a right leg injury. Cephus has caught 30 passes for 501 yards and six touchdowns this season.

    2) Seahawks 22, Cardinals 16– Arizona scored TD in last 2:00 but PAT was blocked, so spread pushed. Seattle is now 6-3 and half-game behind Rams in NFC West. Cardinals are 4-5 and in deep trouble with an aging roster- they have 11 players who are older than Rams’ coach Sean McVay.

    1) RIP to the great actor John Hillerman 84, who passed away Thursday in Houston. The son of a gas station owner, Hillerman appeared in movies like Chinatown and Blazing Saddles, but is best known for playing Jonathan Higgins, major domo of the estate in Magnum, PI. He was nominated for four Emmy awards for playing Higgins— he won one in 1987.

    RIP, sir.

    [B][I]Washington at Stanford
    November 9, 2017[/I][/B]

    Stanford (6-3 straight up, 3-5-1 against the spread) will be in revenge mode Friday night in Palo Alto, where it will take on Washington at 10:30 p.m. Eastern on Fox Sports 1. Both teams are vying for the Pac-12 North division title, with the Huskies holding a half-game lead over both the Cardinal and Washington State.

    Washington (8-1 SU, 6-3 ATS) is 5-1 in league play, while Stanford and the Cougars both own identical 5-2 conference records. Chris Petersen’s team will face Washington St. in the Apple Cup at home in both team’s regular-season finale in two weeks.

    As of late Thursday afternoon, most betting shops had Washington installed as a six-point favorite with a total of 45. Bettors could take Stanford on the money line for a +200 return (risk $100 to win $200).

    UW is 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS in four road assignments this year. Since taking their only only loss 13-7 at Arizona St. as 17.5-point road ‘chalk,’ the Huskies have won back-to-back home games both SU and ATS vs. UCLA (44-23) and Oregon (38-3). They smashed the Ducks last week as 17.5-point favorites.

    Oregon drew first blood with a 30-yard field goal midway through the first quarter, only to see UW score 38 unanswered points. Jake Browning threw for 204 yards and two touchdowns, while Myles Gaskin rushed for 123 yards and one TD on 17 attempts. True freshman running back Salvon Ahmed turned six carries into 84 rushing yards and one TD.

    Dante Pettis had a 64-yard punt return for a TD and also grabbed four receptions for 87 yards and one TD. Aaron Fuller contributed four catches for 76 yards, while reserve senior RB Lavon Coleman had a 31-yard TD grab.

    For the season, Browning has completed 67.8 percent of his throws for 1,907 yards with a 16/5 touchdown-to-interception ratio. The junior signal caller has also rushed for five TDs to bring his career total to 10. However, Browning hasn’t been sharp in the last three games. He has just two TD passes compared to a pair of interceptions during this span. In addition, Browning threw for only 139 yards in the loss at ASU and just 98 yards vs. UCLA.

    Gaskin is now Washington’s third all-time leading rusher behind only Napoleon Kaufman and Chris Polk. The junior RB has produced 918 rushing yards and 10 TDs this year with a 6.2 yards-per-carry average. Gaskin also has 12 catches for 114 yards and two TDs. Coleman (4.8 YPC) has rushed for 325 yards and four TDs, in addition to making eight receptions for 122 yards and two TDs. Ahmed has 298 rushing yards and three TDs while averaging 6.1 YPC.

    Pettis is UW’s leading receiver, snaring 49 balls for 571 yards and seven TDs. He is the nation’s leader in all punt-return stats, netting 412 yards on 19 of them with four TDs. That’s good for an incredible 21.7 yards per punt return average.

    Washington is ranked No. 1 in the nation in total defense, giving up merely 242.1 yards per game. The Huskies are second in the country in scoring defense (11.1 PPG), sixth at defending the run and third versus the pass. Thanks to Pettis’s spectacular special-teams production, they are 14th in the nation in scoring offense (38.6 PPG) despite having mostly mediocre numbers in other offensive categories.

    The UW stop unit is led by junior linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven, who has recorded a team-high 59 tackles to go with two forced fumbles, two tackles for loss, one sack and two passes broken up. Taylor Rapp, a sophomore safety, has 40 tackles, two sacks, 1.5 TFL’s and one forced fumble.

    Washington lost starting junior CB Jordan Miller to a season-ending ankle injury in mid-October. Miller had 23 tackles, two interceptions, one forced fumble and a team-high five PBU before going down in the Huskies’ seventh game. Also, starting junior WR Chico McClatcher sustained a season-ending ankle injury in late September. He had 10 catches for 128 yards before getting hurt in a Week 4 win at Colorado by a 37-10 count.

    Petersen’s team has three others starters that are done for the year in CB Byron Murphy, OT Trey Adams and WR Quinten Pounds. Adams was a second-team All-American last year, but he suffered a bad knee injury in mid-October. Pounds had 10 receptions for 133 yards and one TD before going down last month.

    Stanford is undefeated in three home games with a 2-1 spread record. As a home underdog during David Shaw’s seven-year tenure, the Cardinal has compiled a 2-0 record both SU and ATS. This is Stanford’s first home underdog situation since beating Oregon 26-20 as a 10.5-point puppy in 2013.

    Going back even further, Stanford has posted a 7-0 spread record with six outright wins as a home ‘dog since its 2007 regular-season finale, a 20-13 win over California as a 14-point puppy.

    Stanford saw its five-game winning streak snapped last Saturday when it dropped a 24-21 decision at Washington St. as a 1.5-point road ‘chalk.’ The Cardinal drew first blood on a 52-yard TD run by star RB Bryce Love early in the second quarter, but the Cougars would score 17 unanswered points before a 22-yard TD run by redshirt freshman QB K.J. Costello trimmed the deficit to 17-14 midway through the third.

    Then with 2:52 left in the third, Bobby Okereke intercepted Luke Falk and returned it 52 yards for a TD to give Stanford a 21-17 advantage. The lead wouldn’t hold up, though, as Falk found Jamire Calvin for an 11-yard scoring strike with 6:56 remaining. The Cougars held on to preserve the victory.

    Washington State actually enjoyed a 430-198 edge in total offense. Love, who sat out a 15-14 come-from-behind win at Oregon State the previous week due to an ankle sprain, wasn’t himself other than the aforementioned TD run. He finished with just 69 rushing yards on 16 attempts, meaning he netted only 19 yards on 15 carries if we left out the 52-yard dash to paydirt.

    Costello, who will get the starting nod vs. UW, completed only 9-of-20 passes at WSU for merely 105 yards, and he threw one interception without a TD pass. For the season, Costello has connected on 53-of-87 throws (60.9%) for 622 yards with a 4/1 TD-INT ratio. He adds a scrambling dimension as well, evidenced by 58 rushing yards and three TDs on just eight attempts.

    Costello and Keller Chryst have been in and out of the lineup at QB. Chryst has connected on only 53.8 percent of his passes for 937 yards with an 8/4 TD-INT ratio. He has one rushing TD, but his negative five total for rushing yards shows that he isn’t nearly a threat with his legs compared to Costello.

    Love was a leading Heisman Trophy candidate before getting injured in late October. The loss and his so-so numbers last week probably eliminated him from that conversation. Nevertheless, Love has been nothing short of sensational in replacing Christian McCaffrey, the school’s third all-time leading rusher despite leaving for the NFL after three seasons. Love has run for 1,456 yards and 12 TDs with an eye-popping 9.6 YPC average. Cameron Scarlett has rushed for 291 yards and six TDs while averaging 4.9 YPC.

    J.J. Arcega-Whiteside has 25 receptions for 386 yards and five TDs, while Trenton Irwin has 28 catches for 308 yards and one TD. Kaden Smith, a redshirt freshman TE who was a five-star recruit out of the Dallas area, has 13 catches for 226 yards and one TD.

    Stanford will be without three contributors on defense, although it hasn’t had two of those players (CB Terrence Alexander and LB Sean Barton) since September. More recently, CB Alijah Holder was sidelined by a season-ending knee injury. Holder had recorded 26 tackles, two TFL’s, one interception with a 32-yard return, three PBU and three forced fumbles.

    Stanford had won three in a row and seven of the last eight in this rivalry, but Washington absolutely demolished the Cardinal by a 44-6 count as a 3.5-point home favorite last season. The 50 combined points went ‘over’ the 46.5-point total on Coleman’s 25-yard TD run with 1:38 remaining in the final stanza.

    Browning was the catalyst, hitting on 15-of-21 pass attempts for 210 yards and three TDs without an interception. Gaskin rushed for 100 yards and two TDs on 18 carries, while Coleman added 74 rushing yards and one TD on 11 attempts. Pettis contributed four receptions for 60 yards.

    The ‘under’ is 6-3 overall for Stanford after cashing in each of its last five games. The Cardinal has seen the ‘under’ go 2-1 in its home outings. Stanford’s games have averaged combined scores of 55.0 PPG.

    The ‘under’ is 6-3 overall for the Huskies, 4-0 in their road contests and 5-1 in their last six games (regardless of the venue). UW’s games have averaged combined scores of 49.7 PPG.

    The ‘under’ has cashed at a 9-4 clip in the last 13 head-to-head meetings between these long-time conference adversaries.

    [B][I]**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**[/I][/B]

    — There are two other games on Friday’s slate: Temple (-2.5) at Cincinnati and BYU at UNLV (-4). After failing to cover the number in their first eight games, the Cougars have picked up their first two ATS winners in back-to-back fashion.

    — Oklahoma State star WR James Washington is listed as ‘questionable’ at Iowa State. Washington has a team-best 52 catches for 1,133 yards and nine TDs. The Cowboys were favored by 6.5 as of Thursday afternoon. The Cyclones own a 6-2 spread record in eight games as home underdogs since Matt Campbell took over prior to the 2016 campaign.

    — Since 2012, Michigan State owns an 8-2 spread record in its last 10 games as a road underdog. The Spartans are catching 17 at Ohio State. They won outright in their last visit to The ‘Shoe in ’15 even though Connor Cook was sidelined with an injury. Looking for a Coach of the Year candidate? Mark Dantonio has to be on your radar after returning only eight of 22 starters following last year’s stunning 3-9 debacle.

    — The ‘over’ has hit in six straight games for both Ohio St. and Maryland.

    — TCU owns a 13-3 spread record as a road underdog since 2009. The Horned Frogs were catching 6.5 at Oklahoma as of Thursday.

    — Florida State was a 17-point underdog at Clemson on Wednesday. This is the Seminoles’ richest spot as underdogs since a 37-10 loss at Florida as 25-point underdogs in Tim Tebow’s final game at The Swamp in 2009. In the words of retired ESPN broadcaster Chris Berman, “we remember…..because we were there!”

    — The ‘under’ has cashed in four straight games for Purdue to improve to 7-2 overall. The Boilermakers are at Northwestern as 4.5-point underdogs Saturday. The total was 48.5 as of Thursday afternoon.

    — The ‘under’ is 8-1 overall for New Mexico, which has lost four in a row while going 1-3 ATS. The Lobos are in College Station to face Texas A&M as 18-point underdogs. The total was 51.5 as of Thursday. Seven of UNM’s last eight games have had 50 combined points or fewer. The ‘under’ had hit in five in a row for the Aggies, but their 42-27 home loss to Auburn last week saw the ‘over’ emerge north of 52.

    — Wake Forest sophomore starting safety and leading tackler Jessie Bates has been downgraded to ‘out’ for Saturday’s game at Syracuse. Without Bates last week, the Demon Deacons gave up 710 yards of total offense at Notre Dame. The Orange has seen the ‘under’ hit in five consecutive games to improve to 8-1 overall. Dino Babers’s squad is in the midst of a 6-0-1 ATS tear in its last seven outings. The ‘Cuse was favored by one as of Thursday afternoon.

    — UCLA is mired in a 1-6 ATS slump with only two outright victories – both at home vs. Colorado and Oregon – in this seven-game stretch. Even worse, star WR Darren Andrews was lost to a season-ending knee injury in last Friday’s 48-17 loss at Utah. Andrews, a second-team All Pac-12 selection in 2016, finished his senior campaign with 60 receptions for 773 yards and 10 TDs. The Bruins’ second-best WR, Jordan Lasley, is ‘questionable’ for Saturday’s home game vs. Arizona St. due to a potential suspension. Lasley has 32 catches for 543 yards and three TDs. On the bright side for UCLA, star QB Josh Rosen is ‘probable’ against the Sun Devils. The Bruins have lost 16 of their 25 games to leave Jim Mora Jr. on a boiling hot seat.

    — Memphis has won 14 in a row in non-Saturday games. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they are at home on Saturday in their last two games. Mike Norvell’s squad has played four of its last five games on Thursday or Friday, including last week’s 41-14 victory at Tulsa. Memphis is off this week before closing with SMU and East Carolina at the Liberty Bowl.

    — Costal Carolina starting QB Tyler Keane is ‘out’ for Saturday’s home game vs. Troy due to a thumb injury. Keane has thrown for 1,440 yards with an 11/5 TD-INT ratio.

    — The visitor has won outright in six straight Iowa-Wisconsin meetings. The Hawkeyes are 6-0 ATS in their last six games as double-digit underdogs going back to the 2012 regular-season finale when they lost 13-7 vs. Nebraska as 16-point ‘dogs. Wisconsin is a 12-point home favorite versus Kirk Ferentz’s 6-3 squad Saturday at Camp Randall on ABC at 3:30 p.m. Eastern.

    — Three key Rutgers starters are listed as ‘questionable’ at Penn State WR/special-teams ace Janarion Grant, LB Deonte Roberts and DE Kemoko Turay compose this important trio. RU owns a 6-1 spread record in its last seven games and has lost by more than 21 just once this season. In bounce-back mode after losing in East Lansing, PSU was installed as a 31-point home ‘chalk’ as of Thursday afternoon.

    [SIZE=4][COLOR=”#A52A2A”][B]NCAAF opening line report: Week 11 betting opens with massive line move[/B][/COLOR][/SIZE]
    Patrick Everson

    [I]“Early bettors got some great value, as top-ranked Georgia quickly moved from small ‘dogs to 2.5-point favorites.”[/I]

    It’s the final month of college football’s regular season, and the push for the big prize – a spot in the four-team College Football Playoff – is getting turned on its head with each passing week. Everson checks in on the opening lines and early action for four key Week 11 matchups, with insights from Dave Mason, brand manager for offshore sportsbook BetOnline.ag.

    [B]No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs at No. 10 Auburn Tigers (-2)[/B]

    Georgia is No. 2 in the polls, but No. 1 where it really matters – in the prestigious CFP ranking. The Bulldogs (9-0 SU, 6-3 ATS) remained on a collision course with Alabama for the SEC title by dispatching South Carolina 24-10 on Saturday, though they fell way short of cashing as 23.5-point chalk.

    Auburn (7-2 SU, 4-3-2 ATS) could certainly upset Georgia’s apple cart this week. The Tigers’ two losses this season weren’t bad ones by any means – at Clemson and at Louisiana State – and they’ve won and covered on the road in their last two games. On Saturday at Texas A&M, Auburn won 42-27 as a 14.5-point favorite.

    “Early bettors got some great value, as top-ranked Georgia quickly moved from small ‘dogs to 2.5-point favorites,” Mason said. “Georgia is by far the most popular bet on the entire betting board so far, with 93 percent of early bettors on the Dawgs. Even with the line move, bettors are still pounding Georgia and are counting on them to cover and beat Auburn for the sixth time in the last seven years.”

    [B]No. 5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at No. 6 Miami Hurricanes (+1.5)[/B]

    Notre Dame found itself at No. 3 in the initial CFP ranking released last Tuesday, after eye-catching victories over Southern California and North Carolina State. The Fighting Irish (8-1 SU, 7-2 ATS) kept rolling in Week 10, topping Wake Forest 48-37 as a 15.5-point home fave.

    Miami is undefeated and trying to make its way into the CFP. The Hurricanes (8-0 SU, 4-4 ATS) certainly helped their cause in Week 10 by rolling over Virginia Tech 28-10 laying 2 points at home.

    “Outside of Georgia-Auburn, no other game is getting as much early action as this top-10 showdown,” Mason said. “The Irish have been very generous to their loyal bettors this season, racking up a 7-2 record against the spread. The public will be counting on another Notre Dame cover – just 30 percent of the early tickets are on Miami.”

    BetOnline.ag opened Notre Dame -1.5 and saw some upward movement, even getting to 4 momentarily, before dialing back to 2.5 and settling at 3 late Sunday night.

    [B]No. 9 Texas Christian Horned Frogs at No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners (-8)[/B]

    If the Big 12 is to be represented in the CFP, one of these two teams will be doing said representing, and Oklahoma surely has the offensive firepower. On Saturday, the Sooners (8-1 SU, 5-4 ATS) hung a 62-burger on Bedlam rival Oklahoma State, holding on for a defensively challenged 62-52 victory as a 1-point road pup.

    Texas Christian is also 8-1 SU and 5-4 ATS, and its lone loss was to Iowa State, just like Oklahoma. The Horned Frogs stubbed their collective toe in Week 9, but bounced back in Week 10 with a 24-7 home win over Texas giving 7.5 points.

    “Dating back to last season, Oklahoma has been a covering machine in front of its home crowd, compiling an 8-1 record against the spread over their last 9 (home) games,” Mason said. “Despite this lopsided trend, 63 percent of early bettors hit TCU and the points. However, I believe the action will be pretty even come kickoff.”

    [B]No. 8 Washington Huskies at Stanford Cardinal (+5.5)[/B]

    The Pac-12 is fading like a pair of 20-year-old jeans, with Washington – which made it to the CFP a season ago – the last best hope to reach the playoff this season. The Huskies (8-1 SU, 6-3 ATS) plastered Oregon 38-3 in Week 10, easily covering as a 17.5-point road chalk.

    Stanford already has three losses on its resume, something even Heisman Trophy candidate Bryce Love can’t mask. The Cardinal (6-3 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) went to Washington State on Saturday as a 1.5-point favorite and left with a 24-21 outright loss, halting a five-game SU win streak.

    “The Huskies have been on a covering tear recently, going 5-1 ATS over their last six games. Stanford, on the other hand, only covered the number once in its last five games,” Mason said. “The early bettors are split 50/50 on this one, although there hasn’t been too much early action. By comparison, there are more than three times the bets on Georgia alone than Washington and Stanford combined. Despite the lack of early action, Washington quickly moved to 7-point chalk.”

    Monty Andrews

    [I]Virginia Tech isn’t messing around in the pass defense department, allowing a minuscule 177.8 passing yards per game.[/I]

    [B]Florida State Seminoles at Clemson Tigers (-16, 46)[/B]

    [I]Florida State’s O-line troubles vs. Clemson’s top-flight pass rush[/I]

    Clemson looks to continue its surge toward the College Football Playoff as it hosts lowly Florida State on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers outlasted a game NC State Wolfpack team last weekend, escaping with a 38-31 road victory. The Seminoles are also coming off a victory – edging Syracuse 27-24 – but are one of just a handful of FBS teams that has failed to cover a spread this season (0-6-2 ATS). Clemson has a significant edge in this one, particularly when Florida State has the football.

    The Seminoles’ quarterbacks have had a rough go of it this season, with James Blackman and Deondre Francois combining for nine touchdown passes and nine interceptions through eight games. Part of the problem has been a leaky Florida State offensive line that has surrendered a whopping 25 sacks – an average of 3.13 per game, ahead of only nine NFL teams. The O-line struggles have also played a role in the Seminoles ranking 90th in the nation in rushing yards per contest (143.8).

    Florida State’s beleaguered line might be facing its biggest test of the season Saturday against a Clemson pass rush that has made bettors smile – and opposing teams cringe. The Tigers’ 33 sacks on the season rank second behind only USC, while their 3.67 sacks per game put them slightly behind NCAA-leading Arkansas State (3.71). Florida State could be in for a long afternoon if it can’t figure out a way to slow a Clemson D-line that has the Tigers on the path to a CFP berth.

    [B]Oklahoma State Cowboys at Iowa State Cyclones (+6.5, 61.5)[/B]

    [I]Oklahoma State’s turnover troubles vs. ISU’s elite thievery[/I]

    Bedlam took on a life of its own this past weekend, as the Cowboys and Oklahoma combined to score an absurd 114 points in a game the Sooners eventually won 62-52. The Cowboys’ ransacked defense will look to recover this Saturday against an Iowa State team that saw its four-game winning streak halted with a 20-16 loss at West Virginia. But the Cyclones could make this a closer game than expected if they can exploit their advantage in securing – and preventing – turnovers.

    The Cowboys need to take better care of the ball if they have any hope of playing in a marquee bowl game this December. Oklahoma State lost the turnover battle 3-2 against rival Oklahoma and has coughed up the ball 19 times through its first nine games; only 12 Division I teams have been worse at hanging onto the football. The Sooners are one of 14 FBS teams to have lost 10 or more fumbles, and QB Mason Rudolph has thrown three interceptions over his past two games.

    That trend could very well continue this weekend, with Iowa State among the league’s best at forcing turnovers. The Cyclones have recovered seven fumbles and snagged 11 interceptions through eight games, giving them a total of 18 takeaways – just outside the top 20 nationally. Three of those came in a stunning 14-7 win over then-No. 4 TCU two weekends ago, a victory that put Iowa State in the elite bowl picture. Look for a similar performance this weekend against a Cowboys team susceptible to turnovers.

    [B]Virginia Tech Hokies at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (+3, 50.5)[/B]

    [I]VT’s vaunted pass defense vs. GT’s anemic air assault[/I]

    The Hokies met their match this past weekend, getting throttled 28-10 by a Miami Hurricanes team that all but secured a spot in the ACC title game. Virginia Tech will look to bounce back against a Georgia Teach roster that fell to 0-4 on the road with a 40-36 setback at Virginia. The Yellow Jackets have been a completely opposite team in their own stadium – boasting a flawless 4-0 home record – but that could be in jeopardy if they can’t overcome a significant mismatch in the passing game.

    Virginia Tech isn’t messing around in the pass defense department, allowing a minuscule 177.8 passing yards per game – tied with UTSA for the 13th-lowest mark in Division I. The Hokies have forced more than their share of bad passes; opponents are completing just 45.2 percent of their total attempts, the lowest mark in the nation. In consecutive wins over Boston College, North Carolina and Duke, Virginia Tech limited opposing quarterbacks to 391 total yards on 32-of-79 passing.

    Georgia Tech is known primarily for an incredibly run-heavy attack, but with the Hokies boasting a top-20 run defense that has allowed just four rushing scores all season, the Yellow Jackets will need to do something through the air. And that could be a problem: Georgia Tech has completed fewer than 40 percent of its passes on the season, ahead of only Army in all of Division I. Look for the Yellow Jackets offense to struggle in all areas this weekend – particularly in the passing department.

    [B]Michigan Wolverines at Maryland Terrapins (+15.5, 46.5)[/B]

    [I]Michigan’s third-down dominance vs. Terrapins’ drive-extension troubles[/I]

    The Wolverines appear to have righted the ship following a disheartening loss to rival Penn State, reeling off consecutive blowout victories over Rutgers and Minnesota. With a pivotal game against hated Ohio State on the horizon, Michigan will look to build even more momentum this weekend in Maryland. The Terrapins have been one of the worst defensive teams in the nation, and haven’t done themselves any favors by struggling to sustain drives on offense.

    Michigan gets things done with a stout defense that ranks among the Division I leaders in a number of categories – including third-down defense. Only Syracuse and Washington State have been better at forcing punts when facing third-down situations than the Wolverines, who have limited opponents to a 24.4-percent success rate. The Scarlet Knights and Golden Gophers combined to make good on just seven of their 24 third-down opportunities in their respective losses to Michigan.

    Third-down success has been elusive for the Terrapins in 2017 – and while that might not be the primary reason for Maryland’s defense spending so much time on the field, it’s certainly a contributing factor. Maryland comes into the weekend having extended drives or scored points on just 32.2 percent of their third-down situations – ranking it 115th in the nation. The chances of that success rate rising this weekend isn’t good – and that could result in even more time on the gridiron for the Terrapins’ weary D.

    [B]Friday’s games[/B]

    Temple beat Cincinnati 34-13/34-26 last two years- they outgained Bearcats 474-186 in LY’s meeting. Owls upset Navy last week; they’re 4-5, need two more wins to go bowling. Temple covered four of last five games, including last two road games, at ECU/Army. Cincy snapped a 5-game skid with upset win at Tulane LW: Bearcats’ last two games were decided by total of four points- they’re 1-2 vs spread at home. Under is 5-2 in last seven Temple games, 3-0 in Cincinnati’s last three. AAC home underdogs are 8-6 vs spread.

    Washington scored 82 points in winning its last two games since their only loss, 13-7 at ASU in their last road game. Huskies are 2-7 in last nine games with Stanford, losing last four visits to The Farm- three of those four losses were by 17+ points. Washington is 3-1 on road, with all three wins by 16+ points.

Pac-12 home underdogs are 13-5 vs spread this season.

    This is worst BYU team in almost 50 years; they’re 1-8 SU vs I-A teams, 1-4 vs spread on road, but they have covered last two games overall. Cougars scored 17 or less points in four of last five games. UNLV won its last two games, is 4-5, needs two more wins to go to a bowl (Las Vegas Bowl???); Rebels are 2-1 vs spread as a favorite this season.

    [size=”3″][I][B] NCAAF Game of the Day: Washington at Stanford betting preview and odds [/B][/I][/size]
    ————————————————————————————————————————

    [B]Washington Huskies at Stanford Cardinal (+6, 44.5)[/B]

    Eighth-ranked Washington knows it must win out to have a chance at reaching the four-team College Football Playoff as it enters Friday’s Pac-12 road contest at Stanford. The Huskies are ranked ninth in the CFP rankings and lead the Pac-12 North Division by a half-game over Washington State and Stanford.

    Washington features the nation’s top-ranked defense (240.9 yards per game) and stands sixth in rushing defense (91.1) as it attempts to slow down Cardinal star Bryce Love. The junior has rushed for 1,456 yards — second nationally behind San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny (1,602) — and has recorded 11 runs of 50 or more yards this season. “He’s just one of those guys that’s really fast, strong, keeps his legs going at all times,” Huskies coach Chris Petersen said of Love. “He’s hard to tackle. He bounces off, runs through hard tackles, really powerful. Obviously, he’s got really good vision.” Stanford’s special teams unit will have their collective eyes on Huskies senior punt returner Dante Pettis, who has four return touchdowns this season and an NCAA-record nine during his career.
    [B]
    TV:[/B] 10:30 p.m. ET, Fox Sports 1.
    [B]
    LINE HISTORY:[/B] Washington opened as eight-point road favorites but as of Thursday night that spread was down to six points. The total hit betting boards at 47 and was bet down to 44.5 heading into game day.
    [B]
    INJURY REPORT:[/B]

    Washington – WR Quinten Pounds (Out For Season, Knee), TE Hunter Bryant (Out Indefinitely, Leg), OL Trey Adams (Out For Season, Knee), DB Jordan Miller (Out For Season, Ankle), WR Chico McClatcher (Out For Season, Ankle), DB Byron Murphy (Late Nov, Foot), TE David Ajamu (Out For Season, Leg).

    Stanford – RB Bryce Love (Probable, Ankle), LB Curtis Robinson (Probable, Undisclosed), T Walker Little (Probable, Undisclosed), CB Alijah Holder (Out For Season, Knee), CB Terrence Alexander (Out Indefinitely, Forearm), LB Sean Barton (Out For Season, Knee).
    [B]
    ABOUT WASHINGTON (8-1 SU, 6-3 ATS, 3-6 O/U):[/B] Junior running back Myles Gaskin (918 yards, 10 touchdowns) has topped 100 yards in four of the past six games and is on pace to top 1,300 rushing yards for the third straight season. Junior quarterback Jake Browning is tied for the school record of 75 touchdown passes (Keith Price, 2010-13), with 16 of them coming this season against just five interceptions. Junior inside linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven has registered a team-leading 59 tackles while senior Keishawn Bierria matched the school record of eight career fumble recoveries.
    [B]
    ABOUT STANFORD (6-3 SU, 3-5-1 ATS, 3-6 O/U):[/B] Love was held to a season-low 69 yards last Saturday in a loss to Washington State but still managed a 52-yard scoring run to keep his streak alive of having at least one 50-yard gain in each game this season. Redshirt freshman quarterback K.J. Costello is making his second career start and he struggled in the snowy conditions in Pullman, Wash., by going 9-for-20 passing for 105 yards and one interception. The Cardinal allow an average of 21.3 points per game but the defense features two standouts in junior strong safety Justin Reid (tied for second nationally with five interceptions) and senior defensive tackle Harrison Phillips (team-best figures of 68 tackles and five sacks).
    [B]
    TRENDS:[/B]

    * Huskies are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games.
    * Cardinal are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games following a straight up loss.
    * Under is 8-1-1 in Huskies last 10 conference games.
    * Under is 5-0 in Cardinal last 5 conference games.
    * Home team is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings.
    [B]
    CONSENSUS:[/B] The road favorites from Washington are picking up 59 percent of the action on the spread and Over is getting 61 percent of the totals wagers.
