Coach Addazio, who is already old school, limits the risks vs. ND, hoping his defense can keep his team in the game. Notre Dame also has depended on the run and short pass in their first two games. Since BC has a very good secondary, I expect HC Kelly will keep new QB Wimbush from risking longer passes. Wimbush found out last week how hard it'll be vs. a top D to run the ball himself, gaining 1 yard on 16 carries. If you take out BC's games, in the past few years, vs. the Clemson-type teams, or maybe a bad FCS team, they almost always stay below this number.
    Making this a ​3*

    Sharp money supposedly bet Pitt down to +11 last night/ this AM, but Okie State is making a mockery of that $. Incredible. East Coast, non-conference trip, and they come out smoking.

    This Oklahoma State team is for real. In the past, a game like this is one they would notoriously come out flat for. However they are just taking care of business and moving on.

    A definite contender for a playoff spot.

    Duke game landed right on the number. Push unless you gave up 14.5. The UCLA/ Memphis was also very close to the exact spread, but it looks like memphis will win and cover.

    11-4, +11 units, but 2-2 on my top four plays. Don't regret playing Stanford after watching USC look physically matched vs. WMU. But USC must have been looking ahead and saving the best for the Trees. Ohio State, overrated, and I knew Barrett was a mediocre passer and that OU would key on the run. Still can't figure out why the Beavers were favored. Really wanted to load up on Minny but the spread had me wary. Still..5* was fine. YTD: 16-9, +10.95 units

    7* Oregon -13.5
    Don't be fooled by the score, the Ducks clearly outplayed Nebraska. I hit the +14 on the Huskers, but felt extremely lucky to win it. The Ducks got the big 28 point lead at half(and it could have been more), and then lost intensity in the 3rd quarter. Nebraska hit a few big plays for scores, but otherwise, Oregon held them in check. It seemed that Nebraska had 6-7 big plays, but otherwise did very little on offense. Taggart and Jim Leavitt have turned around this defense. They didn't get a lot of pass rush at times, but did hurry Tanner Lee to throw 4 picks and many incompletions. The Duck pass coverage was excellent considering how bad it was last year, and their run D was solid. Besides Lee's 4 ints, Oregon came close to stripping the ball a number of times. Turnover mentality.

    And there is nothing wrong with Oregon's offense. The zero in the 2nd half was partly due to running too often(instead of mixing the run/pass in the 1H), partly due to Nebraska's D adjustments, and partly due to a few missed easy opportunities. QB Herbert has got great touch on the ball, can move around well, and occasionally runs when needed. His poise and decision-making is markedly improved from last year. Great OL, run game, and though some of the WRs are young, there is lots of talent there. The weak 2H will motivate the coaches and players to play for 60 minutes vs. Wyoming.

    Wyoming was last year's darling in the Mt. West, and I do like their coach. But the amazing RB Brian Hill is gone(and his 1900 rushing yards), the top 4 of 5 receivers are gone, and now acclaimed QB Josh Allen has it all on his shoulders. Wyoming couldn't run the ball on Gardner-Webb last week(or on Iowa), and Allen has been under pressure in the first two games mostly due to defenses not keying on Hill anymore. Wyoming's D also got gashed last year in a few games, 69 to UNLV, 56 to UNM, 52 to Nebraska, and 34 to a horrible Nevada offense. Wyoming has been recruiting near the bottom of the Mt. West for the past many years, and their athleticism and speed are not too good. Oregon's offense will be too much to handle, and this time for 60 minutes. Taggart won 2 road blowouts last season with USF, at Syracuse and Cinn. USF went 4-1 on the road, and won their bowl game in a neutral site. He has this Duck team on an even keel, disciplined, and will use last week's 2H as motivation to crush the Cowboys. Wyoming was tough at home last year, but think their lack of talent catches up to them this year. Ducks are a complete team again, and finally have the coaching staff to be consistent.
    Well done!

    You knew what you were doing, the write up shows why you thought it was a strong play.... thanks!
