You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for oodles of information on Texas A&M at Clemson.

But the biggest question is: IS the market inflating Clemson based on its decimation of ACC bottom dwellers (which is pretty much everyone, the whole conference belongs in the basement) over the last two seasons?

Both Nebraska and Colorado won against inferior opponents, but both were outgained — the Huskers as a 35-point favorite against lowly South Alabama, one of the worst teams in FBS.
Kyle Miller is counting on things to change this week when the two rivals meet in Boulder, and thinks we’ll see a streamlined and simplified offensive attack from Nebraska.

The Georgia Southern-Maine total has dropped from 51 to 46.5 with 98% of the money on the under. The Bears have one of the best defenses in FBS, and Georgia Southern runs a sluggishly-paced triple option.
The opposite happened in Florida State-UL Monroe, which has risen from 61 to 65 behind 88% of the money on the over.

Stuckey likes one FCS team to hang tough and maybe pull off the upset this afternoon.
Darren Rovell reports that FanDuel’s biggest bet of the weekend ($11,000) came on Central Michigan to cover +35 against Wisconsin.
The Badgers have been awful at covering huge spreads recently. In the past five seasons, they’ve been at least 30-point favorites in eight games and covered just once.
Nick Saban is 4-13 against the spread as a favorite of at least 40 points at Alabama, according to our Bet Labs data. He’s 17-0 straight-up in those games, of course.
The Tide are a 55-point favorite against New Mexico State. The under is 5-10 in those games, as well.
