ARMY (-6.5) by 14.10 over Temple - Temple's 72nd-ranked run defense will have to contend with Army's 2nd-ranked rushing offense. The Black Knights have 2 wins this year in games where they didn't complete a pass and threw it 5 times or less. Matchup.

FLORIDA ATLANTIC (-3.5) by 9.83 over North Texas - North Texas has been a surprise in CUSA, and FAU has perhaps been even more surprising. The Mean Green (4-2, 3-0) currently lead the West division and the Owls (3-3, 2-0) are tied for the lead in the South. The computer trend line puts FAU up by nearly 14 points and the Owls only need to win by 4 at home to cover. Matchup.

FLORIDA STATE (-5.5) by 13.14 over Louisville - Louisville has the top offense in the ACC, but gets no help from its defense that ranks 63rd nationally and would be far worse if it hadn't faced woeful Kent State and FCS member Murray State. The Cardinals' defense has allowed over 500 yards in each of their last 2 games vs. N.C. State and Boston College, and surrendered over 600 to Clemson earlier in the year. Despite FSU's own woes, the 'Noles are favored on the computer trend line by just over 10 points. Don't dismiss the revenge factor at play as Louisville embarrassed FSU 63-20 last year. Matchup.

CALIFORNIA by 3.76 over Arizona (-1) - Commentary to come. Matchup.

Boston College by 5.48 over VIRGINIA (-7) - Commentary to come. Matchup.

NAVY by 1.18 over Central Florida (-7.5) - Commentary to come. Matchup.

CHARLOTTE by 13.30 over Ala.-Birmingham (-7.5) - Upstart UAB brings a 4-2 record to Charlotte (0-7) which has the 4th-worst offense in CUSA and the 2nd-worst defense. The surprising Blazers have a legitimate shot at becoming bowl eligible in their first year back on the gridiron after a 2-year program hiatus. I do not see a Charlotte upset win brewing. Matchup.

EASTERN MICHIGAN by 1.98 over Western Michigan (-4) - Commentary to come. Matchup.

Southern Mississippi by 0.33 over LOUISIANA TECH (-1.5) - Commentary to come.Matchup.
