Florida-Tennesee (Florida favored by 3) and Mississippi St-Auburn (Auburn by 2) highlight a weaker Saturday slate of games, but there are still a few that enthusiasts should have on their radars:
After Texas Tech beat Arkansas last weekend, the coaches got a little testy. We’ll be watching how each team responds this week.
Texas Tech is home against the #3 TCU Horned Frogs. TCU and Heisman-hopeful QB Trevone Boykin are favored by 7.5, but get this – Vegas expects the total points to be 79.5! Buckle up for a shootout on Fox at 4:45.
Arkansas hosts #14 Texas A&M, the team that TT coach Kliff Kingsbury predicted would kick Arkansas’ ass. Vegas agrees. Arkansas is 7.5-point underdogs even at home.
