MICHIGAN (-20) by 28.37 over Air Force - First meeting since 1964 which Michigan won 24-7 in "The Big House". Wolverines reinstated starting running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and back-up defensive end Frank Clark after sitting 1-game suspensions for separate run-ins with the law. The computer had Michigan favored to win this game by 31.65 before its loss at Alabama.
Michigan won 31-25. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
Fiu (-25) by 34.91 over AKRON - Zips lost opener under new head coach Terry Bowden by 42 last week at home vs. Central Florida. FIU's loss last week at Duke was considered an upset by the computer.
FIU won 41-38 in OT. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
Oklahoma State (-13.5) by 21.49 over ARIZONA - You can't use last week's 84-0 win to draw any definitive conclusions about the Cowboys as Savannah State has won a total of 20 games over the last 12 years. Replacing stars like QB Brandon Weeden and WR Justin Blackmon is already difficult without having to be concerned about pulling your starters early to avoid another team's embarrassment, but that's the position head coach Mike Gundy found himself in. As a result, 94 different players were used by the end of the 3rd quarter and he began emptying the bench at halftime. Arizona needed overtime to escape Toledo 24-17.
Arizona won 59-38. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
ARKANSAS STATE (-21) by 25.85 over Memphis - I'm surprised the computer has the margin this low. Memphis lost last week's opener at home 20-17 to Tennessee-Martin which has been a .500 FCS team for the last three seasons.
Arkansas State won 33-28. the computer won SU, lost ATS.

Bowling Green won 21-13. The computer won SU, won ATS.
STANFORD (-14) by 18.66 over Duke - The Cardinal escaped with a 20-17 home win over San Jose State while Duke downed FIU 46-26. Both games were flukes and Stanford will roll.
Stanford won 50-13. The computer won SU, won ATS.
KANSAS STATE (-6.5) by 20.87 over Miami, Fla. - 'Canes probably should have lost last week's game at Boston College after being down 14-0 early, but 3 Eagles' turnovers helped bail them out. Wildcats won 28-24 at Miami last year.
Kansas State won 52-13. The computer won SU, won ATS.
Nebraska (-4.5) by 14.18 over UCLA - Are oddsmakers reading a little too much into a 49-24 win at Rice? The computer thinks so, not to mention it has the 'Huskers ranked 5th and the Bruins at No. 49.
UCLA won 36-30. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
NEVADA (-1.5) by 2.07 over Usf - The computer won last week's Nevada game at Cal ATS. I'll ride the Wolf Pack again, especially at home at an elevation that's 4,400 feet higher than where USF is located.
USF won 32-31. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
North Carolina (-4.5) by 6.22 over WAKE FOREST - Wake avoided the home upset loss to FCS member Liberty last week with a 20-17 squeaker while UNC easily blew away FCS member Elon 62-0 in Larry Fedora's debut as head coach. Certainly the Tar Heels are more than 7.5 points better than the Flames.

OHIO (-20) by 20.63 over New Mexico State - Personal opinion is that both numbers are nuts and the Bobcats win by 30+. Ohio won by 20 at Las Cruces last year.

VIRGINIA (-5) by 9.35 over Penn State - The computer nailed the Ohio-Penn State game last week.
Virginia won 17-16. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
