Maryland started 3–0 with victories over Buffalo, Charlotte and SMU. On Saturday, however, business will pick up when the Terrapins travel to Ann Arbor to face Michigan.

I circled this game before the season, as Maryland has improved, I still think it will struggle against physical teams like Michigan. Last year, the Terps were pushed into the trenches versus stronger opponents, losing by double digits to Ohio State (49), Michigan (41), Michigan State (19) and Penn State (17).
Maryland allowed SMU QB Tanner Mordecai to throw for 369 yards last week. I think it will be Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy’s coming-of-age party. The Wolverines have made six straight covers against Maryland. The beat is running on Saturday.
to select: Michigan-17.

Oregon State (+6) Usc . Feather
I bet the Beavers a +7 starting number, but the line has gone down because, according to Kaiser, Oregon State alone has three times more money to cover the spread than any other college game this week. .
While this is shocking, I think the state of Oregon has the speed to give USC’s defense problems. Fresno State averaged 6.8 yards per game last week, but scored just 17 points due to blown opportunities.

USC was not very impressive in its One Road game, beating Stanford 13. Oregon State is more talented and Corvalis would do amazing. Beavers live to pull outright upset.
James Madison on the Appalachian State (+7)
The Appalachian state is in a dire situation this week. The Mountaineers have played three emotional games so far this year. They lost a wild shootout to state big brother North Carolina, went on the road to upset Texas A&M, then won with a Hail Mary on the final game at Troy with ESPN’s College Gameday in town.
James Madison is a quality team and you have to wonder if these Appalachian state kids have enough left in the tank to cover touchdowns. I’m betting they don’t. Look for a low-priced Duke that’s hard to hang on the road.
UCLA over Colorado (-21.5)
This is the pure fade of Colorado. The Buffaloes are terrible, going 128-30 in losses to TCU, Air Force and Minnesota. UCLA is relieved after playing a close game last week against South Alabama. Bruins Roll.
Last week: 1-2. Washington (W), Rutgers (L), Nebraska (L).
