ANALYSIS: The Spartans gave Auburn a scare a few weeks ago and have taken care of a couple lesser opponents. Even so, that doesn't seem to merit them being favored over a Wyoming club that has made major strides since its season-opening loss to Illinois. The Cowboys were dominant defensively in a win over Air Force and respectable last week against high-powered BYU. They have also played two more games than San Jose State so they should have superior continuity. Moreover, the chilly weather and rain play right into Wyoming's rugged style of play.

ANALYSIS: It seems unlikely this moves to a full field goal before kickoff, but you should wait until the last second to pick. While Baylor has been the more tested team one-third of the way through the season, Oklahoma State had two weeks to prepare for a revenge game and enters with what is clearly an improved offense. This as BU is coming off a hard-fought road win at Iowa State. One hesitation for the Cowboys is that they're starting their road schedule at a tough environment in Waco, but their offense is clicking at a tremendous rate. The Pokes are on a 9-1-1 ATS streak in Big 12 play, and while I like them straight up, it's worth taking any points you can get in what should be a close game.

ANALYSIS: Since beating Oregon in Week 5 of last season, Stanford is 1-9 with its lone victory coming against FCS member Colgate. Now the Cardinal head into a night game at Eugene without two starting offensive linemen and running back E.J. Smith. The Ducks' speed on offenses poses a huge problem for Stanford. Oregon gets its revenge in a big way.

ANALYSIS: South Alabama would be undefeated if not for a last-second loss against UCLA. The Jaguars could make some noise in the Sun Belt Conference but will have to avoid a letdown spot. Playing in Lafayette should pose an interesting challenge ATS-wise. South Alabama should continue to win, but the challenge of covering steep numbers will be the issue here. Take the home underdog in Louisiana.

ANALYSIS: Even in a loss last week, Washington State showed it has something special to build on with quarterback Cameron Ward. The sophomore dazzled on the big stage against Oregon and put himself on the map nationwide. Still, look for the Bears to neutralize what the Cougars want to do on both sides of the ball. They’ll control the pace of play and keep this game within reach late. Take the Bears and the points.
