Pittsburgh at Miami(Fl)               -3

The Pick: Miami(Fl) -3 – coin flip kind of game, I like Miami to get this done at home, but it will be close

The Pick: Notre Dame -6.5 – ND should get this done, but it will not be pretty

Air Force at Army         -2

Georgia Southern at Mississippi       -27.5

The Pick: Georgia Southern +27.5 – Southern has enough of a run game to avoid the rout, but forget about trying to steal this one

The Pick: Rice -4 – The uggo bowl goes to Rice at home

The Pick: Arkansas +5 – I think the week off makes the difference as the Hogs get the win at home

The Pick: Memphis -3 – this is scary for Memphis, but they should pull it out late

Idaho at Louisiana-Lafayette    -5.5
