Week 6 Saturday six pack: Six college football pounders
Each week, I will pick out a new variety six pack for Saturday morning in addition to my six favorite situational sides on the college football card. Short and simple.
Charleston Southern +27
You know I love my big FCS dogs catching FBS teams in sandwich spots; Indiana should sleepwalk through this game after a trip to Penn State last week with Michigan on deck. The Bucs offense, coming off back-to-back 50-plus point outbursts, should score enough to keep this within three touches.
I’m selling Georgia at their peak here after two straight SEC massacres. There’s flat potential with an early kick in Nashville. I simply can’t pass on catching 17.5 in a game that might not even see 17 total points. Additionally, Georgia will be without three linebackers and Trenton Thompson on the defensive line.
Sleepy spot for the Orange with an early kick after two consecutive close road losses to NC State and LSU with Clemson and Miami on deck.
A simple fade of Wazzu, playing their first road game of the season, in a prime letdown spot after their home upset win over USC. The Ducks overcome their injuries and get revenge from the blowout loss they suffered against the Cougars last season.
San Diego State’s luck is going to run out at some point. I will gladly take nine in a game I think the Rebels win outright. See Collin Wilson’s CW9 piece for a further breakdown as to why we both think UNLV gets to the window.
I think you finally see a complete 60-minute focused effort from the Trojans, after their loss last week. USC also had an extra day to prepare for an Oregon State team that will be without their starting quarterback, star running back, two linebackers and four players in the defensive backfield.
