What do you got, BYU? Are you a contender or a pretender? I’m excited to find out Friday night on the blue turf in Boise. The Cougars and quarterback Zach Wilson have had an easy schedule, as evidenced by their 41-10 shellacking of Western Kentucky last week, but they will be tested here.
USC-transfer Jack Wilson went 17-20 for 280 yards and three touchdowns in the Broncos’ 49-30 victory over Air Force, but the Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last five games in Boise, and this is a reasonable number to lay with the better team.
The largest single CFB bet of the weekend belongs to a Pennsylvania bettor who wagered $40,000 on Boise State +120 ML with a potential payout of $88,400. BetRivers.com is also providing boosted odds on Over 61.5. It was -110, but we are making it +110 instead. The Pick: BYU -3.0
West Virginia (4-2) at #22 Texas (4-2). 12:00 p.m. ET
Moneyline: Texas -205, WVU +163
Spread: Texas -5.5
Over/Under: 54 points

West Virginia has a weird obsession with Texas, culminating in the Mountaineers somehow believing they invented “Horns down” despite Oklahoma having used it for decades. It annoys me as a Longhorn, but it keeps the ‘Eers motivated. Y
es, Texas upset then-No.6 Oklahoma State in Stillwater, but the Horns benefitted from four Cowboys turnovers, and the stat sheet reveals that they were soundly outplayed. West Virginia’s offense continues to get better, which we saw last week when the Mountaineers stunned Kansas State 37-10, and the road team is 3-0-1 ATS in the last four meetings. The Pick: West Virginia +5.5.
Michigan State (1-1) at Iowa (0-2). 12:00 p.m. ET
Moneyline: Iowa -250, Michigan State +195
Spread: Iowa -6.5
Over/Under: 46.5 points

It’s been a hell of a swing for the Spartans in their first two games. First, they committed seven turnovers in a shocking loss to Rutgers, only to rebound and upset rival Michigan 27-24 last week. Which team will we see in Iowa City? Probably the one in the middle.
Regardless, the Hawkeyes will be without Ihmir Smith-Marsette, who was arrested last weekend, and he’s a key piece of Iowa’s offense as well as their primary kick returner. In addition, the Hawks have been held scoreless in the second half in both games this season, so I’ll gladly back the public here. The Pick: Michigan State +6.5.
Stanford (0-0) at Oregon (0-0). 7:30 p.m. ET
Moneyline: Oregon -335, Stanford +255
Spread: Oregon -8
Over/Under: 50.5 points

I’ve looked at this game again and again, and all I see is an Oregon blowout. The Ducks lost Justin Herbert to the NFL, but Tyler Shough is poised to be the next big thing in Eugene. Oregon has young, elite-level defenders that will be tasked with slowing down a Stanford rushing attack that only ranked 11th in the conference last season.
The Cardinal are 0-4 against the number in their last four games, and I don’t know how they’re going to stay competitive in this one. The Pick: Oregon -10.
