Bet on NCAAFCollege football opens with its first full Saturday of NCAAF betting action with an incredible lineup of attractive and challenging games to choose from. College football handicappers will not at all be limited to NCAAF betting matchups of cupcakes and powerhouses as there are some great games to consider.
Baylor at Wake Forest, for example, is a college football matchup of an up and coming Big 12 team that is hoping for a bowl berth against an established Atlantic Coast Conference contender that has been one of the better NCAAF betting values in recent years. One of the most attractive games on the college football betting board for any opening day is the border battle from St. Louis between the Missouri Tigers and Fighting Illini of Illinois. While Missouri is rebuilding and missing most of its main college football weapons of the past 3 seasons they still own the Illini, who have plenty of raw talent but questionable coaching.
One of the college football matchups that all handicappers are eagerly awaiting is the Georgia at Oklahoma State game. 13th ranked Georgia is always deep with talent and has the Southeastern Conference pedigree but 9th ranked Okie State has a dynamic offense and will be seeking revenge for an embarrassing loss at UGA last year. Charlie Weiss and his Fighting Irish of Notre Dame will host the Nevada Wolfpack in what may not be as easy of a college football opener as many would think. Notre Dame will quickly establish whether or not they are worthy of their ranking of 23rd in the college football polls.
USC again looks like a leading college football powerhouse and will likely flex their muscles with an opening day visit from the San Jose State Spartans. True Freshman Matt Barkely gets the start for the 4th ranked Trojans.Number 20 BYU will hit the road to take on number 3 Oklahoma in the ESPN college football prime time game for Saturday. The Cougars could be a live dog that bites with value against the powerful Sooners. Two late games of interest are Maryland at California in a matchup of perennial bowl teams and number 11 LSU at Washington in the coaching debut of Steve Sarkisian.
