Virginia (2-1) at boise state (2-1)
Boise State is one of those teams that you always think is good because of that one game you kind of remember from that one time you saw them play. Fortunately for them, Virginia is a team that we see all the time and we know they’re bad.
Prediction: Boise State 41 – Virginia 20
NC State (2-1) at florida state (0-1)
Look, if NC State really wanted to take the whole college playoff thing seriously, they would have scheduled better. Second week in a row against a team that hasn’t won a game all season.
Prediction: NC State 31 – Florida State 30
Kent state (1-2) at Louisville (2-1)
Kent State may have had a song written about them by Neil Young, but Bobby Petrino inspired the epic “Amazing” video by Aerosmith.
Prediction: Louisville 56 – Kent State 10
Pitt (1-2) at georgia tech (1-1)
Pitt will have no answer for Georgia Tech’s explosive triple option, which is one more option than Kevin Stallings has when deciding which two players to send to ACC media day next month.
Prediction: Georgia Tech 31 – Pitt 17
Old dominion (2-1) at Virginia tech (3-0)
UNC beat the Monarchs by 30 points, so nothing short of 31 points will be acceptable to Virginia Tech fans and their weird obsession with North Carolina. I don’t get it. At all.
Prediction: Virginia Tech 58 – ODU 10
boston college (1-2) at clemson (3-0)
I’m not even sure what Boston College was doing scheduling this game.
Prediction: Clemson 51 – Boston College 13
toledo (3-0) at miami (1-0)
The U is officially BACK y’all. No, like literally. They haven’t played in two weeks.
Prediction: Miami 24 – Toledo 20
wake forest (3-0) at appalachian state (2-1)
The kind of smoke trapped inside of App’s stadium > the smoke trapped inside of Wake’s stadium after the Deacon’s motorcycle entrance.
Prediction: Wake 34 – App State 13
duke (3-0) at unc (1-2)
Two statements of fact:
1) The only reason to even entertain UNC having a chance in this game is because it feels off to be confident about Duke football.
2) There’s a reason it feels off to be confident about Duke football.
Prediction: Duke 38 – UNC 20
lsu (2-1) at Syracuse (2-1)
I’ve never been to Syracuse, but I’m sure everyone involved with New York’s College Team will be fired up by College Gameday in nearby Times Square.
Prediction: Syracuse 20 – LSU 18
