BOSTON COLLEGE (5-5 SU/4-6 ATS)
at RUTGERS (4-5 SU/8-0-1 ATS)
BC dropped a 35-28 home decision to West Virginia last week as -4 point favorites. Paul Peterson was inconsistent at quarterback for Boston College as he completed 22-of-41 pass attempts for 231 yards and three touchdowns, but was also intercepted three times in the contest. Quinton Porter completed 8-of-14 passes for 86 yards and was intercepted once. BC lost despite holding edges in total "O" (478-308) and first downs (27-13). Rutgers is off a 38-31 loss at Connecticut last week as +7 point underdogs. Rutgers lost despite a big day from Brian Leonard, who had 184 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries. Ryan Hart connected on 18-of-32 passes for 211 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions, as the Scarlet Knights dropped their fourth game in five outings. Rutgers lost despite having edges in total "O" (436-330) and first downs (26-16), but had five turnovers in the game. Offensively, BC ranks 43rd in the nation, averaging 397 ypg, while Rutgers ranks 59th, averaging 383 ypg. On defense, BC comes in ranked 52nd, allowing 352 ypg, while Rutgers ranks 81st, allowing 398 ypg. BC is 9-2 ATS the last 11 with Rutgers and won last years meeting 44-14 as -28 point home chalks. The favorite in this series also comes in 10-2 ATS the last 12 meetings, but Rutgers is on an 8-0-1 ATS run this season and 6-0 ATS in their last six home games. Rutgers has covered every game this season (with one push last week), so will continue to ride that streak. Take the points.
SELECTION: RUTGERS +7½

MINNESOTA (9-2 SU/7-3-1 ATS)
at IOWA (7-3 SU/7-3 ATS)
The Gophers are off a 37-34 home win over Wisconsin as -7½ point favorites. QB Asad Abdul-Kaliq finished 6-of-11 for 106 yards, while Laurence Maroney had 15 carries for 141 yards and a touchdown. Marion Barber finished with 124 yards rushing and one touchdown for Minnesota. Abdul-Khaliq left the game just before halftime with an injured left shoulder. He did not return. Minny outgained Wisky in total "O" 491-420, including 330-120 on the ground. The Hawkeyes are off a 27-14 loss at Purdue last week as +3 point underdogs. Iowa quarterback Nathan Chandler was 16-of-29 for 203 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He also ran for a score. Maurice Brown had eight receptions for 126 yards for the Hawkeyes, who were outgained in total "O" (327-287). Offensively, the Gophers rank 4th in the nation, averaging 495 ypg, while Iowa ranks 91st, averaging 332 ypg. On defense, an edge goes to Iowa as they rank 11th in the nation, allowing just 283 ypg, while Minnesota ranks 29th, allowing 329 ypg. Moreover, the Hawkeyes rank 5th in the nation in rushing "D", allowing just 80 ypg and they should be able to shut down that Minny rushing "O" that averages 303 ypg (rank 1st in land). Minnesota is just 1-9 ATS the last ten meetings with Iowa and 2-9 ATS in road finales. Iowa counters with a 10-1 ATS mark in their last home game of the season. There is no line on this game as of Tuesday due to the status of Minnesota QB Asad Abdul-Kaliq (shoulder), but the line should come out around Iowa -7. Whatever the line is, lay it.
SELECTION: IOWA (minus the points)

TEXAS A&M (4-6 SU/1-9 ATS)
at MISSOURI (6-3 SU/5-3 ATS)
Texas A&M was drilled last week at Oklahoma in a 77-0 loss as +30 point underdogs. QB Reggie McNeal completed just 4-of-13 passes for 32 yards for the over-matched Aggies Derek Farmer led Texas A&M with seven rushes for 21 yards and only one Aggies receiver had more than one catch. Tim Van Zant led the squad with two catches for 20 yards. It was a very bad effort for the Aggies as they were outgained in total "O" 630-54 and first downs (35-2). The 77 points were the most points ever given up in a game by a Texas A&M team. Mizzou was upset last week in a 21-16 loss at Colorado as -5½ point road favs. QB Brad Smith had an up-and-down day for the Tigers, completing 29- of-42 passes for 287 yards and two touchdowns. He ran for 102 yards on 21 carries, but also threw two costly interceptions and lost a crucial fumble. Mizzou outgained Colorado in total "O" (419-258) and first downs (25-17), but fumble twice in the game. Offensively, A&M comes in ranked 57th, averaging 385 ypg, while Mizzou ranks 37th, averaging 404 ypg. Defensively, A&M ranks 94th in the nation, allowing 423 ypg, while the Tigers rank 54th, allowing 357 ypg. Texas A&M is 11-3 ATS in the second game of back-to-back road affairs and 16-6 ATS prior to playing Texas. Mizzou counters with a 6-2 ATS mark in their last home game of the season. The favorite is now 8-0 ATS in A&M's last 8 games and the Aggies have allowed 58, 48 and 77 points in their last three road affairs. Mizzou is also 12-2 ATS the week after facing Colorado and 16-8 ATS in their last three games of the year. Take note that Texas A&M comes in 1-11 ATS as a road underdog. Missouri needs a couple of more solid wins this season to get a nice bowl bid and will get on this week.
SELECTION: MISSOURI -13

OREGON (6-4 SU/5-5 ATS)
at UCLA (6-4 SU/4-5-1 ATS)
Oregon comes off a 21-17 home win over Cal as +1½ point underdogs. QB Jason Fife started the game and completed 8-of-16 passes for 107 yards and a touchdown and also added a team-high 35 rushing yards on five carries. QB Kellen Clemens also saw action as he completed 9-of-18 passes for 117 yards and a score. Samie Parker pulled down a team-high six balls for 63 yards and a touchdown, while Tim Day added four receptions for 69 yards and a score. UCLA is off a 31-13 loss at Wash State last week as +10½ point underdogs. QB Matt Moore completed just 11-of-29 passes for 138 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions for the Bruins, who turned the ball over seven times. Tyler Ebell ran for 105 yards on just 12 carries for UCLA, while Maurice Drew added 80 yards on 23 attempts. Drew, though, had two of the Bruins' four lost fumbles. UCLA turned the ball over 7 times, as did Wash State, but had edges in total "O" (365-323) and first downs (18-14). The Bruins have lost two straight after opening the Pac-10 slate with four straight wins. Offensively, Oregon comes in ranked 42nd, averaging 397 ypg, while UCLA ranks 108th, averaging 304 ypg. On defense, the Ducks rank 58th, allowing 370 ypg, while UCLA ranks a very respectable 20th in the land, allowing 315 ypg. Oregon is 3-8 ATS in their last road game of the season, as well as 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games overall, but the visitor in this series is 8-3 ATS the last 11. UCLA counters with a 15-8 ATS mark in their last home game of the season. In addition, take note of Oregon's last two conference road games as they lost at Arizona State 59-14 as -1 point favorites and 42-10 at Washington as +1½ point underdogs. UCLA also remembers last years 31-30 home loss to the Ducks, as they missed a FG late in the game. The same thing happened in 2001 in a 21-20 UCLA loss to the Ducks as well. In that game, UCLA missed a FG on the last play of the game. Will call for revenge to prevail here. Lay the small number
SELECTION: UCLA -2

USC (8-1 SU/7-2 ATS)
at ARIZONA (2-8 SU/5-5 ATS)
2nd-ranked USC is off a bye week after an impressive 43-16 dismantling of previously 6th-ranked Washington State as -12 point home favorites. QB Matt Leinart completed 17-of-31 passing for 191 yards and three touchdowns and LenDale White rushed for 149 yards and a score, as Southern California who won their fifth in a row overall and their 12th straight at home. It was another balanced effort for the Trojans as they held a 436-320 edge in total "O", gaining 222 yards on the ground and 214 through the air. The defense did a great job as well, as they held Wash State to minus 25 rushing yards. Arizona finally got a win last week in a 27-22 victory over Washington as +15 point home underdogs. Kris Heavner completed 10-of-20 pass attempts for 151 yards, a touchdown, and an interception and Michael Bell ran for 222 yards and three touchdowns in Wildcats, who snapped an eight-game losing streak. Arizona held a 405-397 edge in total, but had only 11 first downs. Offensively, the Trojans rank 17th in the nation, averaging 443 ypg, while Arizona ranks 110th, averaging 304 ypg. On defense, it's about the same as USC ranks 33rd. allowing 335 ypg, while Arizona ranks a 103rd. allowing 444 ypg. Take note of the fact that Arizona scored on TD runs of 67, 69 and 37 yards in last week's win over Washington, but that won't happen this week as the Trojans come in with the 3rd rated rushing "D" in the land, allowing just 58 ypg. USC is 6-2 ATS in their last road game of the season and the favorite in this series is 8-2 ATS the last ten meetings. Arizona comes in 3-14 ATS as a conference host and 3-12 ATS in their last 15 November home games. This one is "nolo contende" (no contest). Lay the points.
SELECTION: USC -29
