A bit late, sorry everyone!

Sorry guys, a bit late on this one. Swim lessons for the kids and a 100 piece Star Wars puzzle later with a five year old...

Oh, first: Maryland crushed FIU, as they should. What does this tell us? It tells us Indiana’s offense is trash and the defense is probably not as good as you thought. Now to the games:

Wyoming at Nebraska (-24.5) || 12:00pm ET || ESPN2

This could be a lot tighter than many Nebraska fans will think. Wyoming isn’t awful and their head coach is an old Nebraska coordinator who was overlooked and moved on to NDSU. We know what NDSU has done.

Penn State at Pittsburgh (-4) || 12:00pm ET || ESPN

Pitt’s AD announced that Penn State returned ticket allotments, for whatever that is worth. As much jabbing from Pitt as there is I’m starting to think Penn State might win this as Pitt’s AD needs to eat some crow for the amount of social media shit talking going on.

UCF at #5 Michigan (-35.5) || 12:00pm ET || ABC

B1G dominating the ABC/ESPN channels. This will be over early.

Cincinatti at Purdue (+4.5) || 12:00pm ET || BTN

We’ll see if Purdue is really worth watching this year or if they’ll return to their beloved #14 spot in the conference rankings. This is a solid OOC shot for them and it’s at home.

Howard at Buttgers (-41) || 12:00pm ET || BTN

Who outside of Buttgers fans are voluntarily watching this?

Indiana State at Minnesota (-24) || 12:00pm ET || ESPN News

And does anyone actually think Minnesota is covering a 24 point spread? LOL.

Normal rules folks: no illegal streams, no illicit photos/gifs/etc, don’t be an asshat. Enjoy!
