    PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Dante Pettis woke up No. 8 Washington just before halftime with his sixth career punt return for a touchdown and Jake Browning threw two second-half touchdown passes in a tougher-than-expected 30-14 victory over rebuilding Rutgers on Friday night.

    Pettis' blistering 61-yard return gave the Huskies their first lead at 10-7 with 3:50 left in the half. He tied former California star DeSean Jackson's Pac-12 career record for punt returns for scores.

    Pettis actually set up the Huskies' first three scores this season. His 51-yard catch set up the first of three field goals by Tristan Vizcaino and his catches of 10 and 24 yards ignited an early third-quarter drive that Browning capped with a 7-yard swing pass to Lavon Coleman for a 17-7 lead.

    Browning was 17 of 30 for 284 yards. He also found halfback Kyle Gaskin on an 18-yard TD pass on the first play of the fourth quarter for a 27-7 lead.

    Louisville transfer Kyle Bolin threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Janarion Grant on Rutgers' first possession for a 7-0 lead and a 34-yarder to Dacoven Bailey with the game pretty much decided. Bolin finished 24 of 34 for 178 yards and had two passes intercepted by Byron Murphy.

    Rutgers has lost 10 straight under second-year coach Chris Ash, but showed a lot of improvement, especially against Washington. The Huskies beat the Scarlet Knights 48-13 last year in the opener in Seattle en route to a 12-2 record, Pac-12 title and a trip to the college football playoffs.

    NO. 9 WISCONSIN 59, UTAH STATE 10

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Alex Hornibrook threw three touchdown passes, Wisconsin forced four turnovers, and the Badgers recovered from a miserable start with a dominating second half to beat Utah State.

    Freshman Jonathan Taylor ran for 87 yards and a touchdown on nine carries in the opener. Star tight end Troy Fumagalli had the go-ahead touchdown catch early in the third quarter, and Zander Neuville and Quintez Cephus made highlight-reel scoring grabs.

    Wisconsin outgained Utah State 251-43 in the Badgers' 28-point third quarter, rushing for 130 yards. Safety Joe Ferguson entertained the hardy fans who stayed for the fourth by returning an interception 99 yards for a score. The Badgers asserted their dominance after struggling early. They trailed 10-0 late into the second quarter before taking off in the second half.

    Utah State's Kent Myers was 25 of 41 for 219 yards with three interceptions.

    Colorado tops CSU 17-3 in flag-ridden game
    September 1, 2017


    DENVER (AP) Phillip Lindsay ran for 140 yards on 19 carries and Colorado capitalized on a flurry of debatable judgment calls by the Pac-12 officiating crew in a 17-3 victory over Colorado State on Friday night in the Rocky Mountain Showdown.

    ''I'll have to watch it on film,'' Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said. ''But calls go either way, no doubt about it.''

    All of these ones went against the Rams (1-1), who were whistled for three pivotal offensive pass interference flags after making key catches either in the end zone or close to it and a hands-to-the-face foul.

    Altogether, the calls negated two touchdown throws from Nick Stevens to go with catches at the Colorado 5- and 15-yard lines.

    ''We don't make excuse or let other people make them for us,'' Rams coach Mike Bobo said. ''We didn't win a ballgame, so we didn't do what we came here to do.''

    The Rams, who opened their season and new on-campus stadium with a 58-27 win over Oregon State last week, lost to the Buffaloes (1-0) for the third straight time.

    The Rams were rocked by the offensive pass interference call on Olabisi Johnson's 21-yard catch at the 5 on Colorado State's opening drive, quickly surrendering 17 points before settling down.

    In the second half, the Rams watched two long touchdown throws nullified in a three-play span to the chagrin of the team and its green-clad fans.

    First, Detrich Clark's 27-yard TD grab was negated by offensive pass interference. Two plays later, Johnson's 40-yard touchdown catch was wiped off by a hands-to-the-face flag on offensive lineman Jeff Taylor.

    Lastly, a 33-yard grab at the 15 by Michael Gallup was wiped off by yet another questionable offensive pass interference flag, this one drawing an especially loud rebuke from Rams supporters in the crowd of 73,932 at the Denver Broncos' stadium while Bobo stared on in disbelief.

    After the first offensive pass interference call pushed the Rams back and eventually forced a punt, the Buffaloes scored on three consecutive possessions.

    Lindsay started it with a 45-yard rumble up the middle and Shay Fields caught a 31-yard TD pass from Steven Montez sandwiched around a 39-yard field goal by James Stefanou.

    Wyatt Bryan's 31-yarder pulled the Rams to 17-3 at the half.

    DOUBLE TROUBLE: Colorado State cornerback Kevin Nutt had a pair of interceptions on passes Montez threw to Devin Ross. The first one at midfield was bobbled by Ross and wrested away by Nutt, whose second interception came in the end zone.

    DOUBLE TROUBLE II: Stevens was sacked on his final two snaps of the first half - his only sacks in 49 drop-backs. After freshman Jacob Collier dumped him for an 8-yard loss, the Buffaloes ran off the field toward their tunnel. But the Rams called timeout to give Stevens a chance at a Hail Mary on fourth-and-23 from the Buffs' 46.

    Stevens was smothered by linebacker Rick Gamboa for a 10-yard loss as time expired.

    THE TAKEAWAY

    COLORADO STATE: The Rams will try to rebound like they did last year, when the lost to the Buffs 44-7 to open their season but bounced back to go 6-5 and earn their second straight bowl berth.

    COLORADO: The Buffs are hoping to show their 10-4 season last year wasn't a fluke and a big win over their in-state rival is a good way to start.

    UP NEXT

    COLORADO STATE: The Rams host Abilene Christian next weekend before their big game at Alabama on Sept. 16.

    COLORADO: The Buffaloes' next three games - against Texas State, Northern Colorado and Washington - are all at Folsom Field.

Tennessee is 13-16 vs spread when favored under Jones- they’ve got 7 starters back on both sides of ball. Georgia Tech has 8 starters back on both sides, but has a new QB; Jackets are 9-5 vs spread in last 14 non-league games, 9-11 in last 20 games when getting points.

    NCAAF Week 1 opening line report: Several high-profile battles highlight opening weekend

    There were a handful of lesser-lights college football games last weekend, but this week truly kicks off the season, with dozens of games, including a couple very high-profile matchups. We check in on the opening lines and early action for four of those games, with insights from Dave Mason, sportsbook brand manager for offshore shop BetOnline.ag.

    No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. No. 3 Florida State Seminoles (+7)

    These perennially strong teams open the season Saturday with a neutral-site contest at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, in prime time with an 8 p.m. ET kickoff.

    Alabama has played in the last two national championship games, earning a split against Clemson in both cases. Last season, the Crimson Tide rolled up a 13-0 SU record in the regular season (9-4 ATS), then bounced Washington 24-7 as a 12.5-point favorite in the College Football Playoff semifinals. But it was a bitter end to the season, as ‘Bama gave up a last-second touchdown to lose the final to Clemson 35-31 giving 6.5 points.

    Florida State had a bumpy first eight weeks of the 2016 season, going 5-3 SU (4-3 ATS), but the Seminoles didn’t lose the rest of the way, finishing 10-3 SU (8-4 ATS). Florida State capped the year with a thrilling 33-32 victory over Michigan in the Orange Bowl.

    “This line is currently exactly where we opened – Alabama 7-point chalk,” Mason said, noting this game first went up on the board back in June. “Not too much movement one way or another. No surprise this game is getting more early action than any other. Action so far has been pretty even, with 52 percent of the early bettors backing ‘Bama.”

    No. 16 Florida Gators vs. No. 9 Michigan Wolverines (-5)

    It’s another big neutral-site non-conference game on opening weekend, with both these teams looking to make a big early splash in this 3:30 ET kickoff on Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

    Michigan got out of the gate 9-0 SU (5-4 ATS) in 2016, but lost three of its last four, including the aforementioned 33-32 Orange Bowl setback to Florida State to finish at 10-3 SU (6-7 ATS). Florida went 9-4 SU (5-7-1 ATS) in 2016, ending the regular season with a loss at Florida State, followed by a 54-16 blowout setback to Alabama in the SEC title game. But the Gators got it back together for the Outback Bowl, drubbing Iowa 30-3 as a 1.5-point favorite.

    “This game is shaping up to be our biggest decision of the weekend,” Mason said, noting the line is now Michigan -3.5. “Sixty-nine percent of the early bettors are on the Wolverines. Michigan is taking on more bets than any other team on the betting board so far.”

    Florida will be without star wideout Antonio Callaway, who was among seven Gators suspended for this game a couple of weeks ago.

    Louisiana State Tigers vs. Brigham Young Cougars (+12)

    This neutral-site game, set for 9:30 p.m. ET Saturday, took on more intrigue Monday when it was moved from Houston’s NRG Stadium to New Orleans’ Superdome, due to Hurricane Harvey. That forced BetOnline.ag to take it off the board for the moment to reassess.

    LSU is coming off an 8-4 SU campaign (6-6 ATS) that included the firing of Les Miles, who was replaced by interim coach Ed Orgeron, who now heads up the program. The Tigers capped the season with a 29-9 victory over Louisville laying 3 points in the Citrus Bowl.

    BYU won its last five games and eight of its last nine in 2016 to finish 9-4 SU and ATS. The Cougars edged Wyoming 24-21 giving 10 points in the Poinsettia Bowl.

    “Some significant movement since opening LSU as 12-point favorites, with BYU currently getting 14.5,” Mason said, just before the game was taken down. “This one is getting very lopsided action from the public, with 81 percent on the Tigers minus the points.”

    Texas A&M Aggies at UCLA Bruins (-3)

    UCLA is coming off a dumpster-fire season in which it went 4-8 SU and ATS. The Bruins lost six of their last seven games, including the last two to Pac-12 rivals Southern California (36-14 at home getting 13 points) and California (36-10 laying 3 points on the road).

    Texas A&M had a better 2016, but hit the skids after a stout 6-0 SU start (4-2 ATS), finishing the season 8-5 SU (4-9 ATS) and failing to cash in its final nine games. That included a 33-28 loss to Kansas State as a 4-point favorite in the Texas Bowl.

    “After opening as a field-goal favorite, UCLA is currently - 3.5 (-118),” Mason said of action on this 7:30 p.m. ET Sunday night kickoff at the Rose Bowl. “About 57 percent of early bettors are on the Bruins so far.”

    NCAAF's biggest betting mismatches: Week 1

    Each week, Monty Andrews breaks down some of the underlying betting mismatches on the college football slate, giving you an inside edge when handicapping the schedule and setting your daily fantasy lineup.

    Florida State Seminoles vs Alabama Crimson Tide (-7, 49.5)

    Seminoles' unimpressive TO margin vs. Crimson Tide's ball-hawking prowess

    There is no bigger game on the opening-week calendar than Saturday's tilt between the No. 3 Seminoles and the top-ranked Crimson Tide at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. And while the game is expected to be a tightly-contested affair - at least, relative to the rest of Alabama's schedule - both teams have advantages they will look to exploit in the season opener. One of the biggest ones, based on last year's performances, could put Florida State in a bad position this weekend.

    The Seminoles were merely ordinary at taking care of the football last season, averaging 1.7 turnovers for and 1.6 turnovers against for a net differential of +0.1 - good for 51st in Division I. Florida State was even worse at taking care of the football late in the campaign, recording a net turnover differential of -4 over its last three games of the season. And while those miscues didn't prevent the Seminoles from an Orange Bowl victory, the story could be much different against the relentless Crimson Tide.

    Alabama's regular-season turnover differential was elite - at 1.9 turnovers forced and 1.3 turnovers allowed, the Crimson Tide's +0.6 differential ranked 19th nationwide - but it was down the stretch when the Crimson Tide really flexed their muscles. 'Bama was sensational at ball control over the final three games of last season, forcing eight turnovers while committing zero. And if the turnover battle skews that way on Saturday night, the Crimson Tide should cruise.

    Florida Gators vs Michigan Wolverines (-3.5, 45)

    Gators' road third-down woes vs. Wolverines' stout D

    Oddsmakers are expecting a low-scoring defensive showdown at AT&T Stadium this weekend in college football's other marquee matchup between the 16th-ranked Gators and No. 9 Wolverines. Florida's offense is in flux - surprise, surprise - and with question marks at quarterback and on the offensive line, there's no telling how well the Gators will be able to move the ball. If last season is any indication, Florida's punter might see a lot of screen time Saturday.

    The Gators have struggled to find consistency at quarterback since Tim Tebow became a pro; four different quarterbacks have at least 100 pass attempts in two years with Jim McElwain at the helm. Florida's offensive struggles last season were summarized in how poorly the team performed on third down, converting at a pedestrian 41.7-percent clip. That rate drops even lower if you only count road games, with Florida making good on just 33.6 percent of third downs away from Gainesville.

    That won't play well at all against Michigan. The Wolverines are set to build upon last year's promising start to the season - and atone for last year's crushing loss to Florida State in the Orange Bowl. The Wolverines were the stingiest team in the nation last year when it came to third-down conversion, allowing opponents to make good at an absurd 21 percent clip.

    LSU Tigers at BYU Cougars (+14.5, 47.5)

    Tigers' red-zone struggles vs. Cougars' downfield dominance

    Coming off a solid showing in SEC play and a decisive win over Louisville in the Citrus Bowl, LSU opens its 2017 campaign as more than a two-touchdown favorite over a BYU team that kicked off its season last weekend with a one-sided victory over Portland State. Yet, while the Cougars aren't expected to put up much of a fight, they do own a decided advantage in red-zone play based on last year's results - and that could keep things closer than fans and oddsmakers expect.

    The Tigers were slightly below average last season when it came to converting trips inside the opposition's 20-yard line into touchdowns or field goals, scoring points on five out of every six visits in games against fellow FBS opponents. It was a slight decrease from the 84.8-percent conversion rate LSU posted a season earlier. The 13th-ranked Tigers averaged 27.8 points per game last season, and will need to be sharper in the red zone if they hope to finish among the leaders in that category.

    Perhaps LSU can learn a thing or two from its weekend opponent. The Cougars were one of the best teams in the country last season at turning red-zone trips into digits on the scoreboard, converting at a 95.9-percent rate; only Florida State was better. That is nothing new for BYU, which converted at a 93.6-percent clip in 2015. The Cougars are also elite at preventing red-zone scores, limiting teams to a 73.5-percent success rate - the eighth-best mark in Division I.

    West Virginia Mountaineers vs Virginia Tech Hokies (-4, 51.5)

    Mountaineers' ordinary pass protection vs. Hokies' sack-happy home D

    This hotly anticipated matchup features two teams ranked in the top 25 who haven't faced each other in 12 years - and much of the focus will be on new Mountaineers' quarterback Will Grier, who last played with the Florida Gators in 2015. Grier looked good in Gainesville, but he had better hope his offensive line is better than it was last year. The Hokies boasted one of the best defenses in the nation in 2016.

    The Mountaineers were an average pass-protection unit last season, ranking 63rd out of 128 qualifying teams in sacks allowed per game (2.1) in games against other FBS foes. They were worse down the stretch, giving up eight sacks over their final three games of the season - and now have to deal with the loss of All-American center Tyler Orlosky to the NFL. Grier will need to work fast or risk winding up on his back more than a couple of times Sunday night.

    The Hokies defense will be licking its chops after putting together one of the most dominant showings in the nation last season. With a secondary ranked in the top five in Division I coming into the season, the Hokies are in great position to make life miserable for Grier and the rest of the West Virginia passing game.

    Saturday's Week 1 NCAAF Top 25 betting cheat sheet and odds

    It's finally back. The first real Saturday of college football season is here and there are plenty of intriguing Top 25 matchups on the schedule, culminating with an epic showdown in Atlanta between No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Florida State. We break down each matchup in Top 25 betting cheat sheet to help you handicap all of Saturday's best action.

    Kent State Golden Flashes at No. 5 Clemson Tigers (-39.5, 51)

    * Golden Flashes quarterback Nick Holley was forced into action last season after Kent State's first four QB options faltered. Holley, who played quarterback in high school, responded with 16 total touchdowns while throwing for 868 yards and passing for 920 more.

    * Clemson was a defensive juggernaut last season, with the base defense - the 4-3 Over - resulting in the Tigers leading the nation in tackles for a loss for the fourth year in a row. The Tigers also limited FBS opponents to a 28.4% conversion rate on third down, the fourth-best mark in Division I.

    LINE HISTORY: The defending champs my have lost Deshaun Watson, but that hasn't stopped the public from backing the Tigers. Oddsmakers opened Clemson at -38.5 and they were bet up to -40, before being bought back to the current number of -39.5. The total opened at 51.5 and has been bet down a half-point to 51.

    TRENDS:

    * Kent State is 2-7 ATS in its last nine games on grass.
    * Clemson is 4-0 ATS in its last four non-conference games.
    * Under is 4-1 in Kent State's last five games vs. ACC opponents.
    * Under is 6-0 in Clemson's last six games in September.


    Akron Zips at No. 6 Penn State Nittany Lions (-30.5, 66)

    * Akron's offense will receive a boost with the return of senior quarterback Thomas Woodson (2,079 yards, 18 touchdowns, six interceptions), who was limited to seven games due to injury but is now 100 percent. The Zips' defense allowed 6.1 yards per play, good four 94th in Division I.

    * Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley (3,614 yards, 28 passing TDs, nine interceptions, seven rushing TDs), was responsible for 13 TDs in the Nittany Lions' last three games of 2016. A much-improved offensive line was a major catalyst, limiting foes to 1.7 sacks per game after giving up three per contest a season earlier.

    LINE HISTORY: Penn State opened as high as -35 for this matchup at some books, but bettors brought that number down almost immediately. The line has moved 4.5-points to the current number of Penn State -30.5. The total on the other hand has gone up significantly, moving 2.5-points from the opening number of 63.5 to the current number of 66.

    TRENDS:

    * Akron is 1-4 in its last five meetings.
    * Penn State is 5-0-1 ATS in its last six home games.
    * Over is 4-0 in Akron's last four non-conference games.
    * Over is 5-0 in Penn State's last five games in September.


    Maryland Terrapins at No. 23 Texas Longhorns (-19, 56)

    * The Terrapins have had a quarterback hold the starting job for an entire season just twice in the past 13 seasons. Last year's QB see-saw led to inconsistent results through the air, with Maryland ranked 77th in yards per completion (12.0), 83rd in QB rating (123.0) and 114th in third-down conversion rate (32.5%).

    * The Longhorns' defense will need to see dramatic improvements after struggling in 2016. Last year's group underachieved, leading to Texas giving up 23 first downs per game (89th-best in Division I) and allowing a collective opposing passer rating of 138.1 (85th).

    LINE HISTORY: The Longhorns opened as 17-point favorites for their matchup with the Terrapins and bettors are backing head coach Tom Herman in his first game as head football coach, moving the line to Texas -19. The total has not moved off the opening number of 56.

    TRENDS:

    * Maryland is 0-6 ATS in its last six road games.
    * Texas is 1-4 ATS in its last five vs. Big Ten opponents.
    * Under is 4-1-1 in Maryland's last six non-conference games.
    * Under is 7-0 in Texas' last seven games overall.


    UTEP Miners at No. 7 Oklahoma Sooners (-43, 63)

    * A bigger contribution from star quarterback Ryan Metz is at the top of the Miners' agenda in 2016. Metz (64.7% completion rate, 1,375 yards, 14 touchdowns, four interceptions) fared well overall, but his performance couldn't prevent UTEP from finishing in the Conference USA basement in attempts (327), completions (195) and total passing yards (2,204).

    * The Sooners racked up 7.4 yards per offensive play in 2016; that number didn't waver depending on the location, with Oklahoma gaining 7.4 yards per play at home and 7.3 on the road. But the Sooners allowed opponents to convert 42.6% of their third downs in FBS action last season - ranking them 85th nationally.

    LINE HISTORY: Oddsmakers opened the Sooners as massive 45 point favorites at some books, but bettors are a little weary with a number so big and it being the first game with no Bob Stoops, moving the line to Sooners -43. The total is up a half-point from the opening number of 62.5 to 63.

    TRENDS:

    * UTEP is 4-12 in its last 16 games vs. Big 12 opponents.
    * Oklahoma is 5-0 ATS in its last five home games.
    * Over is 5-2 in UTEP's last seven games overall.
    * Under is 5-0 in Oklahoma's last five home games.


    No. 17 Florida Gators vs. No. 8 Michigan Wolverines (-4.5, 43)

    * The Wolverines led Division I in fewest yards allowed per game last season (216.7), but lost Taco Charlton, Ryan Glasgow and Chris Wormley, who combined for 19 1/2 sacks and 31 1/2 tackles for loss. The loss of Jake Butt, Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson forces Michigan to account for 138 receptions, 1,908 yards and 13 touchdowns.

    * A handful of 2016 starters have departed a Florida defense that limited opponents to a Division I-best 92.9 passer rating. Struggles on the other side of the football persisted, with the Gators finishing 79th in the nation in passing yards per game (215.8).

    LINE HISTORY: This line has seen plenty of action. The Wolverines opened as about a 3-point favorite, were bet as high low as -2 and as high as -5.5. They are currently 4.5-point favorites. The total hit the board at 45 and has been bet down 2-points to the current number of 43.

    TRENDS:

    * Florida is 1-7 ATS in its last eight non-conference games.
    * Michigan is 4-1 ATS in its last five games in September.
    * Under is 4-0 in Florida's last four non-conference games.
    * Over is 5-0 in Michigan's last five non-conference games.


    Western Michigan Broncos at No. 4 USC Trojans (-26.5, 58)

    * The Broncos ranked 11th in the NCAA in points per game (39.3), largely in the strength of two players - quarterback Zach Terrell and receiver Corey Davis - who have moved on. Look for an even greater emphasis on a run game that produced nearly 219 yards per game in 2016.

    * The Trojans' success hinges on quarterback Sam Darnold, who had a 67.2% completion rate, more than 3,000 passing yards, 31 TDs and just nine interceptions. The USC rushing game was also robust in 2016, averaging 5.1 yards per carry - well ahead of the 4.5 YPC mark it posted in 2015.

    LINE HISTORY: Oddsmakers opened the Trojans as about 26-point favorites for their opener and bettors backed USC up to -27.5. But since then, the number has come back down to USC -26.5. Most books opened the total around 58, which is where the number currently sits.

    TRENDS:

    * Western Michigan is 10-1 ATS in its last 11 games in September.
    * USC is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games overall.
    * Over is 4-1 in Western Michigan's last five games on grass.
    * Under is 5-1 in USC's last six home games.


    Appalachian State Mountaineers at No. 15 Georgia Bulldogs (-14.5, 45.5)

    * The Mountaineers boasted a rushing attack that finished eighth in Division I in rushing yards per game (256.9) and sixth in yards per attempt (5.9). The centerpiece of that vaunted ground assault, junior Jalin Moore, will look to build upon his 1,402-yard, 10-touchdown showing from last year.

    * The Bulldogs have a clear strength coming into the 2017 season, and that's on defending the run. Georgia has nine returning linemen on a defense that was borderline-elite in 2016, ranking in the top 30 in both rushing and passing S & P+.

    LINE HISTORY: Early on bettors were on the always upset-minded Mountaineers, moving the line from +14.5 all the way down to +12. But since then, bettors have bought back the Bulldogs, with the current number at Georgia -14.5.

    TRENDS:

    * Appalachian State is 13-3 ATS in its last 16 road games.
    * Georgia is 1-4 ATS in its last five home games.
    * Under is 6-1 in Appalachian State's last six games on grass.
    * Over is 8-1 in Georgia's last nine games vs. Sun Belt opponents.


    Georgia Southern Eagles at No. 12 Auburn Tigers (-34, 59.5)

    * The Eagles were one of the most run-heavy teams in the nation last season (67.1% rush rate) but only ranked 35th in rushing yards per game (207.0). Redshirt freshman QB Shai Werts will look to improve upon Georgia Southern's 119.1 proficiency rating from a year ago.

    * Auburn averaged seven yards per play and 513 yards per game from Sept. 24 to Nov. 5 of last season, while limiting opponents to 4.8 yards per play and 334 yards per contest in that span. Returning running back Kamryn Pettway amassed 1,224 yards on 5.9 YPC and seven rushing scores despite playing just nine games.

    LINE HISTORY: The Tigers hit the board as 35-point favorites and have been bet as low as -33.5 at some places. The total on the other hand, has seen plenty of action. Since opening at 53, it has sky-rocketed up six and a half points to the current number of 59.5.

    TRENDS:

    * Georgia Southern is 5-0 ATS in its last five vs. SEC opponents.
    * Auburn is 5-1 ATS in its last five non-conference games.
    * Over is 4-1 in Georgia Southern's last five non-conference games.
    * Under is 5-0 in Auburn's last five overall.


    No. 16 Louisville Cardinals at Purdue Boilermakers (+25, 68)

    * Returning QB Lamar Jackson racked up more than 5,100 combined yards while throwing for 30 touchdowns and rushing for 21 more in 2016. Louisville was a top-10 offensive unit in yards per game (532.7), fourth-down conversion rate (68.8%), yards per rush (6.0) and yards per play (6.9).

    * Purdue surrendered an obscene 39.5 points per game in 2016 while allowing opponents to convert more than 49 percent of their third-down situations. The Boilermakers threw the ball nearly 63 percent of the time but averaged just under 300 yards per game, barely inside the top 20 nationally.

    LINE HISTORY: The Cardinals opened as high as -27 at some shops, but it has been the Boilermakers seeing most of the action. The number got as low as Louisville -24, before getting bought back to the current number of -25. The total hit board at 68.5 and just bounced around that number, currently at 68.

    TRENDS:

    * Louisville is 0-4 ATS in its last four games overall.
    * Purdue is 1-4 ATS in its last five non-conference games.
    * Over is 4-0 in Louisville's last four games in September.
    * Over is 4-1 in Purdue's last five games overall.


    No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide vs. No. 3 Florida State Seminoles (+7, 49.5)

    * Quarterback Deandre Francois (3,350 passing yards, 20 touchdowns, seven interceptions) will need more help this season from an offensive line that allowed a 7.88% sack rate. The Seminoles were flagged an average of 7.8 times for 74 yards per game in 2016, ranking them among the worst offenders in the nation.

    * The Crimson Tide led the nation in fewest yards per carry allowed (2.0) and fewest yards per game against (63.9). The offense will see six returning starters, including standout quarterback Jalen Hurts (2,780 yards, 23 passing TDs, 13 rushing TDs) and leading rusher Damien Harris (1,040 yards, 7.2 YPC).

    LINE HISTORY: The Crimson Tide opened favored by a converted touchdown at most book, with the number bouncing back-and-forth between -7 and -7.5. It is currently 'Bama -7. The total opened at 49 and has moved up a half-point to 49.5. Check out the complete line history here.

    TRENDS:

    * Alabama is 8-1 ATS in its last nine games in Week 1.
    * Florida State is 4-0 ATS in its last four non-conference games.
    * Over is 4-0-1 in Alabama's last five vs. ACC opponents.
    * Over is 6-0 in Florida State's last six neutral site games.


    No. 13 LSU Tigers vs. BYU Cougars at (+14.5, 47)

    * Hot on the heels of a terrific ground effort in 2016, the Cougars picked up where they left off, piling up 171 rushing yards in last week's 20-6 drubbing of Portland State. BYU ranked second in the nation last year in red-zone conversion rate (95.9%), and led Division I in turnovers forced per game (2.5).

    * The Tigers' ground game is in great hands with junior running back Derrius Guice (1,387 yards, 15 touchdowns, 7.2 YPC). Senior Danny Etling (2,123 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, five interceptions) will get first crack at elevating an LSU passing game that finished 93rd in the nation in yards per contest (195.8).

    LINE HISTORY: The Ed Orgeron era at LSU beings and most bettors have liked the change. The Tigers opened at -13.5 and were bet as high as -16, before getting bet back to the current number of -14.5. The total hit the board at 47.5 and has bounced back-and-forth between that and 47, where it currently sits.


    No. 22 West Virginia Mountaineers vs. No. 21 Virginia Tech Hokies (-4, 51.5)

    * The Mountaineers called a run on nearly 57 percent of their plays last season, but that should shrink with the addition of former Florida Gators quarterback Will Grier. That said, West Virginia will still lean on a run game that ranked 25th in the nation in yards per game (227.8) and 28th in yards per carry (5.2).

    * The Hokies boasted a top-30 scoring offense last season (34.9 points per game) but are replacing quarterback Jerod Evans (3,552 passing yards, 846 rushing yards, 41 total TDs) with redshirt freshman Josh Jackson. The Hokies allowed foes to convert on third down just 28.6 percent of the time (fifth-best nationally).

    LINE HISTORY: Oddmakers think this will be one of the closest games this weekend opening with the Hokies favored by a field goal. They have since been bet up one point to the current number of Virginia Tech -4. The under has seen some action here, with the number hitting the board around 54.5, it is currently down to 51.5.

    TRENDS:

    * West Virginia is 0-4 ATS in its last four neutral site games.
    * Virginia Tech is 4-0 ATS in its last four games overall.
    * Over is 4-1 in West Virginia's last five neutral site games.
    * Over is 13-3 in Virginia Tech's last 16 non-conference games.

    Saturday's Best Bets
    September 1, 2017


    The first full Saturday of college football action each year is like Christmas morning to CFB bettors as it begins the months-long grind of tracking scores of 50+ games each Saturday.

    If you aren't particularly used to all the action a college football Saturday can bring, I'd suggest breaking down the day into time slots to help with your handicapping. Doing that allows you to focus only on a handful of games every few hours and it helps you avoid over-exposure with your bankroll.

    Lessons like that can be especially important during the Week 1 excitement, as bettors have been waiting for these games to kick off for months and with all that time to research, prognosticate, and project, anxiousness could get the better of you.

    With that being said, there are definitely some marquee games on the first Saturday of the year in 2017 and they'll be getting the bulk of the attention from bettors and media outlets.

    This year we've got Michigan/Florida and Florida State/Alabama headlining the card and I'm sure many of you have already digested numerous opinions on those games.

    So instead, I've gone elsewhere for three games I consider some of the best bets on the board on Saturday, and hopefully we can all get through the early part of the first Saturday of the 2017 College Football season with a few more units in our betting bankroll.

    Game #1: Kent State vs. Clemson (-39.5); Total set at 51 – 12:00 p.m. ET

    Odds per - BetOnline.ag

    Best Bet: Kent State +39.5


    The defending National Champions from Clemson begin a new era in 2017 as QB Deshaun Watson has moved onto the NFL, and two straight years in the title game clearly puts the target on their backs. The Tigers still have plenty of talent returning to defend their crown this year, but this is just a brutal spot for them to be trotting out a new starting QB.

    Bettors have to be concerned about a potential championship “hangover,” and not to mention the fact that Clemson has a huge game on deck with Auburn the following week. That's definitely not a spot I want to even consider laying that kind of chalk as the Tigers could very well “shut things down” once they get up big and either not have enough to win by 40+, or leave the backdoor open late for a Kent State team that can put up points if given the opportunity.

    Game #2: Maryland vs Texas (-18.5); Total set at 56 – 12:00 p.m. ET

    Odds per - BetOnline.ag

    Best Bet: Maryland +18.5

    It's a new regime in Texas, as former Houston HC Tom Herman gets to hopefully reap the benefits of former HC Charlie Strong's strong recruiting classes at Texas the past few years. Strong could never get the desired results on the field though, and while many believe that Texas is primed to be a significant player in the Big 12 this year, I've got no problem waiting on that thought until the Longhorns can actually prove it to me on the field. They have been perennial under achievers the past few years, and a coaching change doesn't always fix everything.

    Meanwhile, Maryland enters 2017 knowing their season is going to be a tough one from start to finish. They've got the worst of it in terms of schedule when Big 10 play begins as they play nearly every single good-to-great team in the conference, and knowing how tough that could end up being, they are viewing this game vs. Texas as one where they could win SU. I wouldn't necessarily go that far, but they'll be more then enough for this Longhorns team to deal with in Week 1 as the Longhorns probably top out with a 14-point victory.

    Game #3: UTEP vs Oklahoma (-43); Total set at 63 – 3:30 p.m. ET

    Odds per - BetOnline.ag

    Best Bet: UTEP +43


    Seeing all these huge double-digit point spreads in Week 1 is commonplace every single year, and typically it's the recreational bettors that prefer to side with the “brand name” schools no matter what the number they are laying. But similar to Clemson on Saturday, Oklahoma has national title hopes in 2017 and are in a bad look-ahead spot with their showdown against Ohio State looming in a week. Although the Buckeyes got the ATS win vs. Indiana on Thursday night, Ohio State was actually losing SU at half and benefitted from some careless Indiana turnovers and miscues on defense to run away and hide in the 2nd half.

    Oklahoma won't be losing this game come halftime and they'll have likely already run away from UTEP, but this is simply too many points to pass up. Oklahoma isn't going to show their hand to Ohio State, and with new HC Lincoln Riley (former OC) getting his feet wet as the head man, the Sooners are going to get in and get out with a comfortable victory. How comfortable that victory ends up being remains to be seen, but with a 1-5 ATS run in their last six non-conference games for Oklahoma, I'm betting that this is a few too many points for them to surpass in Week 1 with the 2nd ranked team in the land on deck.

    NCAAF

    Saturday, September 2


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Saturday's NCAAF Game of the Day: Alabama vs Florida State
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Alabama Crimson Tide vs Florida State Seminoles (+7, 49.5)

    Two national championship contenders kick off the season in one of the most anticipated openers of all-time when top-ranked Alabama faces third-ranked Florida State on Saturday at Atlanta. The Crimson Tide have won four national titles under Nick Saban and Florida State has claimed one under Jimbo Fisher and both squads are forecasted to be in the title hunt this season.

    Alabama lost 35-31 to Clemson on a last-second touchdown in last season's College Football Playoff title game and Saturday's contest -- the first football game at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium -- is billed as perhaps the biggest opener in college history. "There is probably more hype because we've had longer to talk about it as a season opener. That has a lot to do with it in my opinion," Fisher told reporters. "But it's the first time two top-three teams have played to open up a season, so I understand where that comes from." Meanwhile, Saban is eager to put last season behind him and focus on the 2017 campaign. "The identity of this team is going to be created by what this team does, not what happened last year, not what happened on the last play of the game," Saban told reporters. "None of that is going to matter to how this team develops their identity and their ability to conquer adversity."

    TV:
    8 p.m. ET, ABC.

    LINE HISTORY:
    The losing team from the 2017 FBS Championship game opened as 7.5-point, but bettors brought that number down almost immediately to 6.5 and the line has come back up a bit to an even 7. The total hit the betting board at 49 and is up a half-point to 49.5.

    WEATHER REPORT: Dome.

    WHAT SHARPS SAY:
    ‘These are two of the best teams in the nation, so it is a shame that one will have a loss after the first week. I currently have both squads in my Top 3 rankings. The pointspread has been sitting steady on the key number (-7) with very little movement so far. Florida State should improve on defense with 9 returning starters after allowing 25.0 points per game last season. Alabama is younger with only 5 returning defensive starters, but they will likely just reload and still be dominant after allowing only 13.0 points per game last season when they also returned five starters. Both defenses will be tested on Saturday night against offenses that averaged 35.1 ppg (FSU) and 38.8 ppg (Bama) last season.’ - Steve Merril.

    WHAT BOOKS SAY:
    'The FSU-Bama matchup is easily our biggest handle of Week 1 college football. It’s drawing the interest of seemingly every square bettor, and some of the sharp contingent. The pros are siding with Florida State for now, but they really like the under. We have 75 percent of the tickets on the over, but 65 percent of the money on the under. The public likes the Tide to cover.' - Scott Cooley of BookMaker.eu

    INJURY REPORT:

    Alabama - RB Bo Scarbrough (Probable, Leg), WR Robert Foster (Probable, Back), RB Najee Harris (Probable, Hamstring), RB Joshua Jacobs (Questionable, Hamstring), WR Cam Sims (Questionable, Shoulder), DL Raekwon Davis (Out Indefinitely, Leg), LB Keith Holcombe (Out Indefinitely, Shoulder)

    Florida State - LB Matthew Thomas (Probable, Academics), DB Trey Marshall (Probable, Suspension), OL Brady Scott (Out Indefinitely, Foot), WR Da’Vante Phillips (Out Indefinitely, Suspension), WR George Campbell (Out Indefinitely, abdominal).

    ABOUT ALABAMA (2016: 14-1 SU, 10-5 ATS, 7-8 O/U):
    Sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts stood out last season as an all-around force as he passed for 2,780 yards and 23 touchdowns and added 954 yards and 13 scores on the ground. Senior wideout Calvin Ridley (72 catches in 2016) is etching his name in the Crimson Tide record books and ranks fourth in school history with 161 receptions. The defense lost a lot of star power, but preseason first-team All-American Minkah Fitzpatrick - a junior strong safety - is back after intercepting six passes last season, while sophomore defensive end Raekwon Davis is doubtful after being shot in his right leg last Sunday.

    ABOUT FLORIDA STATE (2016: 10-3, 8-4 ATS, 6-8 O/U):
    Sophomore quarterback Deondre Francois will be looking to take a step forward after a stellar 2016 in which he passed for 3,350 yards and 20 touchdowns against just seven interceptions. The big issue is replacing all-everything back Dalvin Cook and junior Jacques Patrick (350 rushing yards last season) will get the first crack. Sophomore free safety Derwin James is healthy after playing just two games last season due to a knee injury, but senior linebacker Matthew Thomas (77 tackles) is in jeopardy of missing the game after not practicing the past three weeks.

    TRENDS (Dating back to last season):


    * Alabama is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games overall.
    * Florida State is 4-0 ATS in its last four games overall.
    * Over is 4-0-1 in Alabama's last five games vs. ACC opponents.
    * Over is 6-0 in Florida State's last six neutral site games.

    CONSENSUS:
    The chalk Crimson Tide are getting 54 percent of the action from Covers users and the Over is getting 59 percent of the totals wagers.
