Anybody who can pick Week 1 college-football games against the spread is either crazy or nuts. I’m much more comfortable with November, when we know who these teams are.

That said, it’s time to tee it up. So let’s do it.

In addition, my good buddies at have decreed that we’re going to do over/unders this fall, too. I’ve always liked the expression “over/under.’’ It works well for Twitter wisecracks. But I’ve always considered it like Light Beer—OK for some people, but not to my tastes. On the other hand, it’s always fun to try something new.

Let the games (and over/unders) begin:


Penn State giving 30-1\2 to Akron

Northwestern giving 24 to Nevada

Louisville giving 24-1/2 vs. Purdue


Washington at Rutgers (52)

Wyoming at Iowa (52-1/2)

Arkansas State at Nebraska (47) The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
