Underdog Pick #1: Duke Blue Devils (+225 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Boston College Eagles, Saturday, 12:30 ET: This is more of a play against Boston College than it is on Duke. We feel as though the Dookies are really in some trouble this year as always, but we also know that Head Coach David Cutcliffe has this program going in the right direction once again after years of floating through the wilderness without really having much hope. BC is just a waste, though. The running game looks incredibly shoddy, QB Chase Rettig just isn’t all that good, and the defense is beaten up beyond belief. The Northwestern Wildcats were able to come into Chestnut Hill and post a victory, and now, the Blue Devils are going to do exactly the same.

Underdog Pick #2: Florida State Seminoles (+130 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Oklahoma Sooners, Saturday 8:00 ET: There are just too many eerie looking things in this game for the Sooners. First off, you know that the Noles are going to be psyched up about this game, knowing that they were absolutely taken behind the woodshed against OU last year in Norman. Now, look at some of those creepy similarities. The last time a No. 1 ranked team came to Florida State, it was the Florida Gators who were three point favorites… In Head Coach Bob Stoops’ second year with the Sooners, he guided them to a National Championship against these Seminoles. Now, it’s the second year for Head Coach Jimbo Fisher in Tallahassee. FSU proves that it belongs with a big time upset on Saturday night to send shockwaves throughout the nation.

Underdog Pick #3: Kent State Golden Flashes (+600 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Kansas State Wildcats, Saturday, 7:00 ET: Last year, the Wildcats really didn’t have all that great of a team, and now, with QB Collin Klein calling 100% of the shots, their offense is just incredibly one dimensional. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels were able to figure it out in Week 1, and they darn near pulled off the upset against the AQ school. Kansas State seems to be a lot more concerned about its conference affiliation right now than the way that it is playing, and it doesn’t realize that a loss in a game like this could ultimately cost the school millions and millions of dollars if the university is left out in the cold without a conference any time in the near future. Kent State has some potential, and though we don’t like that ugly loss at home against the Louisiana Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns last week, we definitely do like the idea of getting 6 to 1 odds that it can make some noise in Manhattan. This defense could be in for a great day.
