UTSA by 1.59 over Arizona (-8) - The Roadrunners get the computer's 24th-ranked Wildcats at home. Larry Coker's squad has 37 seniors on its roster and returns 21 starters (including kicker and punter) from a year ago. Last week, Houston was a 13-point Vegas favorite over UTSA but the computer only had Houston winning by 4.01. As it turned out, UTSA won the game in a rout, 27-7.
Arizona won 26-23. The computer lost SU, won ATS.
Friday, September 6
Pittsburgh by 3.08 over BOSTON COLLEGE (-1) - I'd personally be inclined to ride with Pitt which has become a consensus 4-1/2 point favorite since the opening lines were released.

Fresno State by 6.94 over UTAH (-7.5) - This would require a major rebound by the Bulldogs after losing 52-13 at USC last weekend. The teams haven't met since 1999 and Fresno State won the last 2 get-togethers.
