College Football Picks 9/19/20
UCF vs Georgia Tech
UCF heads north to Georgia Tech to take on the Yellow Jackets in my first pick of the day. Georgia Tech enters this game following a low scoring win against Florida State last week. They moved the ball fairly well in that game passing for 277 yards and rushing for 161 yards. During last weeks victory, Georgia Tech’s offensive line allowed only one sack against one of the best defenses in the country. Last year Dillon Gabriel played very well as a true freshman and looks to improve this year. UCF is predicted to win the AAC by many people and a win in this game would be a huge step in the right direction. My pick for this game is UCF -7.5.
SMU vs North Texas
The next game on toady’s card features a matchup between SMU and North Texas. Both of these teams come into this game following big time victories in there first games of the season. In North Texas’ game against Houston Baptist they moved the wall extremely well totaling 721 yards. In that game they put up 57 points covering the 23-point spread. On the other side of the field SMU comes into this game following a victory over Texas State. SMU is lead by QB Shane Buechele and hopes to have one of the best passing offenses in all of college football. North Texas looked great in their opener and will have no problem covering in this game. My pick is North Texas +14.
Louisiana Tech vs Southern Miss
Louisiana Tech heads to Mississippi to take on Southern Miss. Louisiana Tech has covered in 6 of their final 8 games last season, while Southern Miss only covered in 1 of there last 5. After just one game this season Southern Miss head coach Jay Hopson resigned. In that opening loss Southern Miss was only able to put up 21 points. Louisiana Tech finished last season very strong and looks to build on that this season. My pick for this game is Louisiana Tech +5.5.
Wake Forest vs NC State
The final play of the game comes from the Wake Forest vs NC State game. While Wake Forest was not able to beat #1 Clemson last week, they did cover the spread in that game. Even though they lost that game they looked like a team that could make some noise in the ACC this season. For NC State this will be there first game of a season that holds a lot of hope. However, Wake Forest’s 9 returning starters on defense will be to much for NC State to handle. My pick for this game is Wake Forest +1.
- UCF -7.5
- North Texas +14
- Louisiana Tech +5.5
- Wake Forest +1
