A second straight 3-2 week? What's gotten into me? Sad that that's the level of success I'm now content with, but it's just been that kind of year. I like a lot of underdogs this week but don't have the guts to officially take them as I'm scratching to end with a respectable record. They include Navy (+7.5) at Notre Dame, Missouri (+7.5) vs. Florida, Syracuse (+10.5) at Duke and, shockingly, UMass (+40.5) at Northwestern. Favorites I like include Virginia Tech (-5.5) at Georgia Tech, Clemson (-34.5) vs. Wake Forest and Ohio State (-52.5) at Rutgers.
Louisville (-4) at North Carolina State
This looks like a matchup of two teams going in different directions. Yes, Louisville's defense remains porous as evident by the 52 points it allowed at Miami last week; but the Cardinals outgained the Hurricanes in that contest. They've proven dynamic offensively, churning out 225-plus yards on the ground five times while mixing in at least 295 passing yards in three of their last five. The 'Pack, meanwhile, have dropped three straight and four of five, with the smallest defeat by 18 points. They've produced only 20 total points in their last two games while allowing 144 points in their last three.

Any line movement would have me leery, but under a field goal,
