Make a deal: If Tulsa wins, the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (who gets this whole coin?) Must add a toilet on that pike. A person can only hold it for so long. Meanwhile, sanitary facilities (one in each direction) have been reduced on the toll highway from Tulsa to OKC. Some people may try to describe this as progress. Do not believe it. O-State by 18.
Miami to Louisville: It’s the third weekend of college games, and so far Miami-Louisville is the only example of two ranked teams sharing a court. In any other season, cry scandal. In 2020, be happy when juniors can play. Additional subject: Miami and Texas are the Coy and Vance Duke of college football. People want to know when and if the real guys are coming back. Cardinals by 2.
Houston to Baylor: Houston started 1-3 last year. The coach asked his senior QB to spend the rest of the season in redshirt like it’s a video game and you hit the reset button if you don’t like the way the game is taking place. The QB, surprised by the offer, accepted the invitation, then entered the transfer portal late in the season and won the starting position in Miami. Good for him. There is probably a lesson somewhere. Bear by 9.
UCF at Georgia Tech: Here’s how far Florida State has fallen: Georgia Tech opened with a win over the Seminoles and it wasn’t big enough to get the Jackets into the PA’s Top 25! G-Tech eventually ditched the option, like OU a few or three decades ago, and embraced a new gadget called the forward pass. Twenty-four successes in Game 1 were the most successful by a Tech passer in 17 years. Ice this child’s arm. Jackets by 3.
