LEIGH’S WEEKLY FIVE #4

LAST WEEK:3-1-1 (75%) CAREER:9-5-1 (64%)

I will never bet on BC again and that Florida backdoor push was brutal…but these things happen. Week 4 is a tough slate but it has got some gems.

Week 4 CFB

9/20 9EST #10 Utah (-3.5) @ USC

I believe in the Utes this year. The Pac 12 is wide open and Utah is clearly the top dog at this point. Slovis has shown some ability but that Stanford win is looking less impressive by the minute. Zack Moss and a better Utes team roll on the road.

Utah 34 USC 21

9/21 12(noon)EST Michigan State @ Northwestern (+9.5)

Boy were the Spartans unimpressive last week, congratulations Herm Edwards! But that is inexcusable for Spartan nation. I expect MSU to be fully energized and locked in for their first Big 10 game of the year, but Pat Fitzgerald always has the cats fighting and I do not think MSU has a good enough offense to run away with this game.

Michigan State 21 Northwestern 20

9/21 3:30EST

#8 Auburn @ #17 Texas A&M (-3.5)

Auburn has yet to play on the road and Bo Nix has not been stellar outside of his miracle cover vs Oregon in the season opener. TAMU has the coaching advantage, QB advantage, and home field advantage. I expect the Aggies to get a much needed home win.

TAMU 31 Auburn 22

9/21 4:00EST

South Carolina (+9.5) @ Mizzou

The Gamecocks have had a rough start to their season and I am not afraid of the Kelly Bryant led Tigers. I expect freshman QB Ryan Hilinski to continue to impress and the Cocks defense to stifle Mizzou.

South Carolina 34 Mizzou 24

9/21 7:30EST

Oklahoma State @ #12 Texas (-5)

The Cowboys have done me very well this year and Texas dissappointed in a huge spot for me but I still love the Longhorns. I still believe Texas is a top 7 team in America and 5 points seems outright disrespectful. I understand Oklahoma State has taken care of business this season, but their defense is suspect and they will be outmatched in this road test.

Texas 41 Oklahoma State 31
