AIR FORCE (-7.5) by 9.87 over Navy - Coming off a 12-0 blanking at home by San Jose State, Navy is winless vs. FBS schools in 2012 and has scored a total of 17 points against Notre Dame, Penn State and SJSU.
Navy won 28-21 in OT. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
Boston College (-8) by 8.77 over ARMY - The Black Knights have lost their 4 games to BC by at least 20 points, have lost 5 straight to the Eagles and 14 of the last 15.
Army won 34-31. The computer lost SU, lost ATS.
DUKE (-1) by 2.91 over Virginia - With a win, the Blue Devils would move to 5-1 overall and 2-0 in the ACC. Duke has won 3 of the last 4, but lost to the Cavs last year in Charlottesville.
Duke won 42-17. The computer won SU, won ATS.
WISCONSIN (-11.5) by 12.57 over Illinois - Illinois has lost its last 2 games vs. Louisiana Tech and Penn State by 28 points and fell by 31 in its only previously road trip (at Arizona State). The Badgers have had their own problems, but the Fighting Illini should help cure their ills.
Wisconsin won 31-14. The computer won SU, won ATS.
KANSAS STATE (-23.5) by 32.97 over Kansas - Kansas ranks 90th on defense and 88th on offense. The computer's spread since the preseason has only moved from 32.95 to 32.97 and the computer is a combined 6-2 SU and 5-1 ATS with these teams in 2012."
Kansas State won 56-16. The computer won SU, won ATS.
MARYLAND (-2) by 5.08 over Wake Forest - Weak Forest has allowed 27 or more points in every game vs. an FBS opponent. Maryland held West Virginia to 31 in its 31-21 loss at WVU in its last game out and has had extra time to prepare for the Demon Deacons.
Maryland won 19-14. The computer won SU, won ATS.
OREGON STATE (-11.5) by 12.92 over Washington State - The surprising Beavers were just 7-point computer favorites in the preseason.
Oregon State won 19-6. The computer won SU, won ATS.
SOUTH CAROLINA (-2.5) by 4.45 over Georgia - The Georgia "d" has been suspect at times, especially last week when it allowed 44 to Tennessee in Athens. The Gamecocks have yielded no more than 17 points in a game this season and have won the last 2 meetings in this border rivalry.
South Carolina won 35-7. The computer won SU, won ATS.
La.-Monroe (-6) by 12.24 over MIDDLE TENNESSEE - One TD should be a piece of cake for the Warhawks who won 63-10 at Tulane last week, held tough against Auburn and Baylor, and initiated Arkansas' downward spiral. Yes, MTSU won at Georgia Tech last week but that was aided by 4 Yellow Jacket turnovers and ULM has won or tied the TO battle in every game.
La.-Monroe won 31-17. The computer won SU, won ATS.
Texas A&M (-8.5) by 21.25 over MISSISSIPPI - I have to take this game, if only for the 14-point disparity between the line and the computer's projected margin. The Rebels have lost 15 straight SEC games.
Texas A&M won 30-27. The computer won SU, lost ATS.
NEW MEXICO (-1) by 4.66 over Texas State - New Mexico's computer advantage has grown by nearly 4 points since the preseason. The Lobos are coming off a 3-point home loss to Boise State.
