This article is part of our College Football DFS: Friday Slate series.
The day after Thanksgiving is typically a day chock-full of college football action, and this year is no exception.

Appalachian State (-12.5) @ Troy O/U: 62.5
UCF (-23) vs. South Florida O/U: 62.5
Missouri (-13) @ Arkansas O/U: 54.5 (FanDuel Only)
