Underdog Pick #1: Connecticut Huskies (+310 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Cincinnati Bearcats, Saturday, 12:00 ET: The Big East has been so unpredictable this year it’s not even funny, but we do think that we are in store for an upset on Saturday. The Bearcats went from the toast of the town in this conference and looking like runaway champs to being mathematically out of it in just a few weeks. QB Zach Collaros is done for the season, and the end result hasn’t been pretty. The Cats can take a share of the Big East title with a victory, but it won’t be enough to get to the Orange Bowl. That right will either belong to West Virginia (with a UC win) or Louisville (with a UC loss). At least the Bearcats know that they are going to be bowling at the end of this year. Connecticut needs to pull off the upset in this game to join the ranks of the teams going to the second season. South Florida already blew its chance at going bowling, but now, we think that the defending Big East champs are going to find their way to a bowl game by taking down the Cats in a generally meaningless game for the hosts.
Underdog Pick #2: Syracuse Orange (+310 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Pittsburgh Panthers, Saturday 12:00 ET: Oh, crazy Big East… Here we go with you again. This game makes even less sense. Pittsburgh has played reasonable ball of late, including nearly beating West Virginia on the road in the Backyard Brawl a week ago. However, the Panthers are just out of running backs, and for a team that can’t pass block and has a quarterback in Tino Sunseri that holds the ball far too long while he is standing in the pocket, that’s pretty darn bad news. The Orange are historically a terrible road outfit, and this year really hasn’t been any different, but what we have learned about this team is that it plays some hardnosed football and isn’t going to lie down. The winner of this one is bowl eligible, while the loser will be home for the holidays. Don’t be surprised if the Cuse turn out to be the lucky one heading to the Pinstripe Bowl for the second straight year.
Underdog Pick #3: Florida Atlantic Owls (+260 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Louisiana Monroe Warhawks, Saturday, 4:00 ET: The Owls are going to be playing one final game for Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger. He won last week for the first time all season long, and we were riding the backs of FAU in that game. Louisiana Monroe isn’t a great team either, just like the UAB Blazers, and we are wondering why it is being asked to lay more than a touchdown in an emotional game for the hosts. The Owls had their best offensive game of the season last week against the Blazers, and we think that they will be able to come up with just enough to be able to pull off the win that will send one of the best coaches in the history of college football out in style.
