Against the Spread Week 3: Above .500 and Waiting for the Music to Stop

UT cheerleaders rose bowl
UT cheerleaders rose bowl

Last Week: 4-1-1
Overall: 8-3-1 (.727)

LSU Tigers -3.5 @ Mississippi State Bulldogs
Dan Mullen has clearly turned MSU into a dangerous team but they still can't hang "athlete-wise" with the SEC's elite whether they bring "more cowbell" or not. 24-20 LSU.

Texas Longhorns -3.5 @ UCLA Bruins
No Gilbert?
No problem. Also gotta think about the "revenge-factor" and that Mack Brown and his Longhorns are no strangers to the Rose Bowl. 28-17 Texas.

Texas Tech Red Raiders -21 @ New Mexico Lobos
Last season Tech beat UNM by 35 points, 52-17, and I don't see why this game will be much different. 45-10 Texas Tech.

Kentucky Wildcats -6 vs. Louisville Cardinals
I watched the Louisville-FIU game last week and I was horrified by how badly coached the Cardinals were. Charlie Strong should be ashamed of himself. I know nothing about UK so this pick is based soley on homefield advantage and by how awful Louisville looked last week. 24-13 UK.

Utah +4 @ BYU
The "Holy War" is almost always a nail-biter and I trust Jordan Wynn. 21-20 BYU.

Oklahoma State Cowboys -13.5 @ Tulsa Golden Hurricanes
Weeden to Blackmon. Weeden to Blackmon. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. This spread will be covered by halftime. 41-23 OSU.
