Colin Cowherd presents his three best college football bets for Week 4 (9/21) (Full Video at Bottom of Page)
In this week’s installment of Colin’s MARQUEE THREE, Colin has his sights (and wallet) on 8# Auburn at #17 Texas A&M, #22 Washington at BYU, and last but certainly not least, #7 Notre Dame at #3 Georgia.
(8) Auburn at (17) Texas A&M – (Spread: Texas A&M -3.5)
“I’m rolling with the Aggies and taking them. Auburn has not played well all year, and even in the Oregon game they won they were outplayed for most of it. Four of the last six SEC games they’ve lost, including the last 4 road games against ranked opponents. The quarterback Bo Nix is REALLY struggling; 52% completion rate.”
PICK: Texas A&M 36, Auburn 27.
(22) Washington at BYU – (Spread: Wash -6.5)
“I’ll take the Huskies. They have led the Pac-12 in scoring defense and total defense the last four years. They are brilliantly coached. Jacob Eason has completed almost 70% of his throws. BYU has played back-to-back highly emotional overtime games and I think they come back down to earth."
PICK: Washington 30, BYU 20.
(7) Notre Dame at (3) Georgia – (Spread: UGA -14.5)
Initially I liked Notre Dame with a couple touchdowns, but once you go deep diving into this game it becomes very clear that this is going to problematic for Notre Dame. The Irish have lost ten straight games to top 5 teams, and Georgia is a monster at home; 15 straight home wins and averaging 43 points in those games. Against opponents not named Alabama and LSU, they’re 27-2 the last three years. They’re averaging 8.7 yards a play this year, that is incredible.
PICK: Georgia 36, Notre Dame 20.
