Underdog Pick #1: Hawaii Warriors (+205 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Washington Huskies, Saturday, 3:30 ET: If U-Dub ended up in a position where it barely survived Eastern Washington, why on earth is it going to be nearly a TD favorite against Hawaii? The Warriors didn’t look their sharpest last week against the Colorado Buffaloes, but QB Bryant Moniz can kill teams both with his arm and with his legs. Last week, he ran for over 100 yards and three TDs, making up for the fact that he didn’t even reach the 200 yard passing mark. Head Coach Steve Sarkisian’s teams just isn’t there yet to compete in the new-look Pac-12, and this is going to be a tough, tough game. The Warriors, in our opinions, should be short favorites in this one in spite of the fact that they haven’t played all that well on the mainland for the most part in recent history.

Underdog Pick #2: Air Force Falcons (+110 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. TCU Horned Frogs, Saturday 3:30 ET: Alright, so it’s not that much of an “upset” pick, but it’s clear that the Falcons might have the better team in this game. We learned last week that TCU’s big, bad defense might not be all that big and bad after watching QB Robert Griffin III absolutely blow it apart, and now, it’s a very short turnaround to take on the triple option offense of the Falcons. Air Force accounted for almost 400 rushing yards last week against the South Dakota Coyotes, and though this week’s test will clearly be tougher, the third stringers won’t be playing in the fourth quarter. RB Asher Clark and QB Tim Jefferson, Jr. are going to be too tough to stop, and after these two have spent three years getting the snot beaten out of them by the Horned Frogs, it’s time for a small measure of payback to knock TCU out of any chance of going to the BCS, even though those dreams were probably shattered last week against Baylor.

Underdog Pick #3: Michigan Wolverines (+130 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Saturday, 8:00 ET: Is it just us, or should the Fighting Irish absolutely be underdogs in this game? Going into the Big House is generally hard enough, but going into the Big House in the first big time game of the Head Coach Brady Hoke era is a totally different story. Already, Head Coach Brian Kelly has given up on his quarterback, and he has made the switch from QB Dayne Crist to QB Tommy Rees. We tend to think that this is the better move for the team both in the short term and in the long run, but it still won’t be enough to knock off the Wolverines on their home turf. QB Denard Robinson will have an absolutely amazing game against this defense, which was torched last week by a very similar in nature, QB BJ Daniels for the South Florida Bulls.
