Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 23-6 run

As Hurricane Delta blazed a path through the Gulf of Mexico last week, the Sun Belt elected to postpone Saturday’s game between the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. The game will now be played on Wednesday night at Cajun Field with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET. Both teams are undefeated and Louisiana is ranked No. 21 in the AP Top 25 entering this week after beginning its season with a dominant win at Iowa State.

However, the Chanticleers also dominated a Big 12 team with a win over Kansas in their opener and they’re coming off a 52-23 drubbing of Arkansas State on Oct. 3. The Ragin’ Cajuns are favored by 7.5 points at home in the latest Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina odds from William Hill. The over-under for total points is set at 58.5.

  • Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina spread: ULL -7.5
  • Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina over-under: 58.5 points
  • Louisiana vs. Coastal Carolina money line: ULL -280, CCU +240
  • ULL: The Ragin’ Cajuns have covered in five of their last six October games.
  • CCU: The Chanticleers have covered in six of their last seven on the road.

Why Louisiana can cover

Louisiana rode a dominant special teams performance to a season-opening win over Iowa State, who is now back up to No. 20 in the AP Top 25 after reeling off three consecutive wins following the loss to the Ragin’ Cajuns. Chris Smith had a 95-yard kickoff return for Louisiana in that win while Eric Garror added an 83-yard punt return for a touchdown later in the game.

And after gaining only 272 yards in that win over the Cyclones, the Ragin’ Cajuns offense has come to life in the past couple weeks. Louisiana is averaging 478.5 yards of total offense per game in wins over Georgia State and Georgia Southern. Running back Elijah Mitchell had 16 carries for 164 yards and two touchdowns when he last played against Georgia State on Sept. 19 and he’s expected to be back in the lineup after missing the Georgia Southern game with COVID-19.

Why Coastal Carolina can cover

The Chanticleers have been building their program gradually under Jamey Chadwell and they made a statement by going to Kansas and

College football top 25 scores, overreactions, Week 6: The SEC has become the Big 12 as offenses run wild

The Big 12’s chicken or the egg conundrum has fully engulfed SEC country: Are the offenses really that good or are the defenses really that bad?

Just a fair warning, SEC: it’s a tired debate that goes in circles. The Big 12 spent years fighting the notion that its teams didn’t play defense. In some respects, it’s still fighting it. But like most answers, the reality was/is somewhere in the middle. Big 12 defenses always should have been graded on a curve given how good the offenses were. 

Much of the same can be said for the SEC and the ACC exiting Week 6 with overs on totals hitting in 13 of the 14 games played. Are the offenses that good, or are the defenses that bad? In short: yes. 

How could you not look at No. 2 Alabama’s 63-48 win over Ole Miss and not be blown away by the offenses? The 1,370 total yards of offense between the two were the most in the history of a regulation SEC game. There’s first-round talent up and down Alabama’s offense, but Lane Kiffin has Ole Miss’ Xs and Os dialed up for maximum point scoring. There was some truly great football being played. 

At the same time, Alabama’s defense is clearly not what it used to be. The Tide have allowed at least 42 points three times in the last eight games. Before that, Alabama had allowed at least 42 in three of its previous 65 games, per CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd. And Ole Miss’ defense? Somehow even worse. 

Let’s switch to No. 21 Texas A&M’s 41-38 win over No. 4 Florida. Was that good offense? Of course. Quarterback Kyle Trask and tight end Kyle Pitts have been dominating the stat sheets through the first three games, connecting for seven touchdowns. These two guys are going to be playing in the NFL. Same with Texas A&M running back Isaiah Spiller, who had 174 yards and two touchdowns. And say what you will about Kellen Mond, but he threw some great passes against the Gators. 

At the same time, Florida looked all out of sorts on defense. Bad angles, bad tackling … just a lot of bad in general. That’s something the Gators have been able to mask because they were winning. The same can’t be said for No. 17 LSU, whose defense has now been torched by Mississippi State and Missouri as part of a 1-2 start. The rebuild that the Tigers are undergoing on that side of the ball is proving to be a bigger task than many realized. New defensive coordinator Bo Pelini has had an awful start as well. 

So, to answer the question. It’s both. And sometimes it’s another thing entirely. In the ACC, No. 19 Virginia Tech was without 15 players against No. 8 North Carolina in a 56-45 loss, including two starting safeties, because of COVID-19 and contact tracing. Depth charts all across the landscape are taking massive hits this year because of it. 

University of Texas’ Ad School Taps Lisa Bennett to Run New Real-World Program

The Stan Richards School of Advertising & Public Relations (SRS) at the University of Texas (UT) appointed longtime agency executive and Texas native Lisa Bennett as executive director of The Lab, a new practice within the school, designed to provide students with practical experience in the advertising and marketing industry.

“I feel like I’ve been preparing for this role my entire life. I grew up in Austin, graduated from UT, learned from some of the best in the business, led work across a broad range of clients and mentored some truly incredible talent over the years,” Bennett said. “Our industry is going through massive change and is facing a multitude of challenges. Creating an entity designed to prepare students for the real world will be an important next stage of my career. The Lab will be designed to give SRS students the best possible chance of succeeding in what is an incredibly competitive and demanding environment.”

Ostensibly a program and student-run agency, Bennett brings voluminous experience to the role, starting at Leo Burnett, where she spent 14 years, ascending to evp, executive creative director. From there, she joined DDB Worldwide as managing partner and CCO of DDB West. Ten years into her tenure, she moved to a North America role. After DDB, Bennett spent time at two independent agencies, including TM Advertising in Dallas, which shut down last year.

“Lisa’s impressive track record and wealth of industry expertise will add tremendous value to the faculty and students of The Lab,” Jay Bernhardt, dean of The Moody College of Communication, said. “I’m confident that under her leadership we will build a highly unique and valuable resource for both students and clients.”

Bennett’s brand resume includes several iconic brands such as Delta Air Lines, Disney, Heinz, Intel, McAfee and McDonald’s. She’s also snapped up several prestigious awards from Cannes Lions, D&AD and Clio Awards, where she was inducted into its hall of fame.

Stan Richards—the iconic advertising figure who founded The Richards Group, and whose name adorns the program—praised the decision to hire Bennett, citing the school’s unique opportunity to give students more robust skills in a more real-world environment.

“She lived the agency life for a long time, and should be able to replicate what happens in any number of agencies around the country,” he said, also noting that the pandemic has changed the dynamics. “There’s a vitality and energy within an agency, partly because of the proximity of people to each other. We’re missing that badly right now, but [students] will get a feel for that and it will better prepare them for when they take on their first job.”

Deb Morrison, the Carolyn Silva Chambers Distinguished Professor of Advertising at the University of Oregon, taught Bennett when she was a UT professor starting in the late 80s.

“Lisa was amazing from the word ‘go,’” she said. “She’s talented and tenacious. At Leo Burnett, she brought a real sense of creativity to those teams and brought them back to a

Louisville vs. Georgia Tech odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from proven model on 20-3 run

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets aim to snap a two-game losing skid when they host the Louisville Cardinals on Friday evening. Georgia Tech opened the season with a strong win over Florida State, but the Yellow Jackets suffered back-to-back losses before an open date last week. Louisville’s journey has been similar, with a season-opening win over Western Kentucky before losses to Miami (FL) and Pittsburgh in ACC play. 

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET. William Hill lists the Cardinals as five-point road favorites in Atlanta, down half a point from the opener, in the latest Louisville vs. Georgia Tech odds. The over-under is set at 65. Before making any Georgia Tech vs. Louisville picks, check out the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $4,200 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It is a sizzling 20-3 on top-rated picks through five weeks of the 2020 college football season, returning over $1,300 in profit already. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Now, the model has set its sights on Louisville vs. Georgia Tech. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Georgia Tech vs. Louisville:

  • Louisville vs. Georgia Tech spread: Louisville -5
  • Louisville vs. Georgia Tech over-under: 65 points
  • Louisville vs. Georgia Tech money line: Louisville -200, Georgia Tech +175
  • LOU: The Cardinals are 9-7 against the spread in the last 16 games
  • GT: The Yellow Jackets are 4-11 against the spread in the last 15 games

Why Louisville can cover

Louisville has an explosive offense, including talented players at every critical skill position. Micale Cunningham leads the way at quarterback, with nearly 800 yards passing and seven touchdowns through the air in three games. He is also a talented runner, with more than 1,000 career rushing yards on his ledger, and sophomore running back Javian Hawkins is averaging more than 100 yards and a touchdown per game this season. 

At wide receiver, junior Tutu Atwell is a budding star, with 229 yards and three touchdowns through three games. As a sophomore in 2019, Atwell generated 1,276 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns, and he is a difficult cover for any opposing team. Defensively, Louisville may have its hands full with a Georgia Tech team that can move the ball, but the Yellow Jackets have been mistake-prone this season. Largely due to 12 turnovers in three games, Georgia Tech is averaging only 19 points per contest, giving confidence to a scrappy Louisville defense. 

Why Georgia Tech can cover

Defensively, Georgia Tech played quite well in the opener against Florida State before struggling in back-to-back games. The Yellow Jackets have a difficult task against a talented Louisville offense, but the Cardinals have allowed 11 sacks in three games, which is one

Alabama vs. Ole Miss odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from expert on 7-0 run

A high-scoring affair is likely in store when the second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide travel to face the rebuilding Ole Miss Rebels in an SEC football showdown Saturday. Kickoff from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The Tide have shown a diverse and efficient offense while scoring 90 combined points in their first two games, a 38-19 win at Missouri and last week’s 52-24 romp over undermanned Texas A&M. 

The Rebels have entered the Lane Kiffin era by showing plenty of their own firepower while splitting their first two. They were routed 51-35 by Florida in Week 1 before responding with a 42-41 overtime win at Kentucky last week. The Crimson Tide are 23.5-point favorites and the over-under for total points scored is 69 in the latest Alabama vs. Ole Miss odds from William Hill. Before making any Ole Miss vs. Alabama picks, check out the college football predictions from Barrett Sallee. 

When it comes to college football, there are few who deserve the “expert” tag quite like Sallee. The CBS Sports writer and analyst hosts shows on SiriusXM College, writes for CBSSports.com and appears regularly on CBS Sports HQ as well as countless radio shows across the nation as a guest.

Sallee debuted with SportsLine in 2017 and has delivered in a big way, posting a winning record in his weekly best bets column since that point. He went 59-35-2 (63 percent, plus $2,037) on all his college football picks for SportsLine in 2019, and he also enters Week 6 of the 2020 college football season on a 49-28 streak on his best bets since the start of last year.

Moreover, he has had a sharp eye for the trajectories of these programs. Over the past two seasons, Sallee is a perfect 7-0 with his against-the-spread picks involving Alabama or Ole Miss. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now, he has set its sights on Alabama vs. Mississippi. You can visit SportsLine now to see his picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Mississippi vs. Alabama:

  • Alabama vs. Ole Miss spread: Alabama -23.5
  • Alabama vs. Ole Miss over-under: 69
  • Alabama vs. Ole Miss money line: Alabama -1,600, Ole Miss +900
  • ALA: The Crimson Tide are 3-7 against the spread in their past 10 SEC games.
  • MISS: The Rebels have covered four straight against opponents with winning records.

Why Alabama can cover

Sallee has considered that this SEC matchup will serve as a major litmus test for both clubs. Although the Tide appear to have their offense rolling behind quarterback Mac Jones and veteran running back Najee Harris, their defense has looked vulnerable at times and Ole Miss is the most potent opponent they have played so far.

Last week, Alabama appeared headed toward a tight game with Texas A&M as the clubs spent most of the first half trading scores on every possession. But the defense clamped down, with Daniel Wright returning an interception for a touchdown and another stop

LSU vs. Missouri odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 20-3 run

The Missouri Tigers host the No. 17 LSU Tigers in a key SEC matchup Saturday at Faurot Field with a noon ET kickoff. The game was scheduled to be played in Baton Rouge, La., but was moved earlier this week as Hurricane Delta bears down on the Gulf of Mexico. LSU is 7-1 against the spread in its last eight road games. Missouri is 1-8 against the spread in its last nine conference games.

LSU is a 14.5-point favorite in the latest LSU vs. Missouri odds from William Hill, down from 20.5 points when it opened with LSU as the home team. The over-under for total points scored is 54.

  • LSU: The Tigers have covered in four straight games on artificial turf.
  • MIZZ: The Tigers are 13-6 against the spread in their last 19 home games.

Why LSU can cover

The defending national champions opened their season with a shocking 44-34 home loss to Mississippi State two weeks ago. Then LSU went on the road and routed Vanderbilt 41-7 last week. Quarterback Myles Brennan is the first player in LSU history to throw for over 300 yards in each of his first two starts.

Starting running back Chris Curry was out last week with an undisclosed injury, and John Emery II had his first 100-yard game and a touchdown in his absence. Curry is expected back for Missouri, which along with Tyrion Davis-Price gives LSU three talented backs.

Why Missouri can cover

This is the third consecutive game against a Top 25 team for the Tigers, as No. 2 Alabama beat Missouri 38-19 in the opener and No. 21 Tennessee defeated the Tigers 35-12 last weekend.

The Tigers’ offense has failed to be as productive as coach Eli Drinkwitz’s units were at Appalachian State, as Missouri has scored just 31 points in losses to the Crimson Tide and Volunteers. Drinkwitz has employed a two-quarterback strategy in both games, starting Shawn Robinson and bringing Connor Bazelak in off the bench.

SportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total, as both starting quarterbacks combine for only three touchdown

North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 20-3 run

The No. 8 North Carolina Tar Heels will host the No. 19 Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturday at noon ET in an ACC battle at Kenan Memorial Stadium. Both programs are off to 2-0 starts on the season by are 1-1 against the spread in those two games. This is the 42nd all-time meeting between the two teams and Virginia Tech has a comfortable 24-11-6 edge in the series.

However, the Tar Heels appear to be turning the corner in their second season under Mack Brown and these teams put on a show in 2019 with Virginia Tech winning a 43-41 shootout. This time around, the Tar Heels are four-point favorites with the over-under for total points at 58.5 in the latest North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech odds from William Hill.

Now, the model has set its sights on UNC vs. Virginia Tech. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Virginia Tech vs. UNC:

  • North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech spread: UNC -4
  • North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech over-under: 58.5 points
  • North Carolina vs. Virginia Tech money line: UNC -185, VT +165
  • UNC: Is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games.
  • VT: Is 6-3 against the spread in its last nine games.

Why North Carolina can cover

North Carolina began its season with a 31-6 win over Syracuse on Sept. 12 and then had to take three weeks off after the program had to deal with a coronavirus outbreak on campus. However, the Tar Heels returned to action last week at Boston College and survived a late scare to win 26-22.

North Carolina has averaged 432 yards of total offense per game in 2020 and sophomore quarterback Sam Howell continues to be one of the nation’s most efficient passers. Howell averaged 8.6 yards per pass attempt as a freshman and is averaging 8.7 yards per attempt so far in 2020. However, he has thrown three interceptions in the first two games after throwing just seven all of last season and he’ll have to protect the football against a well-coached Hokies defense.

Why Virginia Tech can cover

The Hokies had to replace long-time defensive coordinator Bud Foster with Justin Hamilton after Foster retired at the end of last season, but Virginia Tech is still as tenacious on that side of the ball as ever. The Hokies have 13 sacks in their first two

Texas Tech vs. Iowa State odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 20-3 run

The No. 24 Iowa State Cyclones will look to stay perfect in Big 12 play when they take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Saturday afternoon. The Cyclones (2-1) are tied for first with Kansas State and Oklahoma State at 2-0 in the conference. Iowa State opened conference play with wins at TCU (37-34) and against Oklahoma (37-30). The Red Raiders (1-2) are 0-2 in the Big 12 after a 63-56 overtime loss to Texas and a 31-21 defeat at Kansas State.

Kickoff from Jack Trice Stadium is set for 3:30 p.m. ET. The Red Raiders lead the all-time series 11-7, while the series is tied 4-4 in games played at Iowa State.

  • TTU: Texas Tech is averaging 342.7 yards passing per game, ninth-best in the country
  • ISU: Junior Brock Purdy is the winningest QB in Cyclones history against Big 12 foes (13-5) 

Why Iowa State can cover

The Cyclones are 2-0 in the conference for the first time since 2002 and have never lost to the Red Raiders under fifth-year coach Matt Campbell. Iowa State is 11-1 in October since 2017. Quarterback Brock Purdy has powered the Cyclones’ offense, completing 46-of-82 passes for 610 yards and two touchdowns with a 124.2 rating. He has also rushed 17 times for 39 yards and one TD.

Sophomore running back Breece Hall powers the running game and leads the Cyclones with 396 rushing yards on 66 attempts (6.0 average) and six touchdowns. He has five receptions out of the backfield for 28 yards (5.6 average). In 2019, Hall was one of the nation’s top freshmen, leading Iowa State in rushing with 897 yards. 

Why Texas Tech can cover

The Red Raiders can move the football and are ranked 10th in the country in yards per game (512 average). Texas Tech could be shorthanded at quarterback because starter Alan Bowman is questionable

Clemson vs. Miami odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 20-3 run

Top-10 ACC teams clash on Saturday when the No. 7 Miami (FL) Hurricanes take on the top-ranked Clemson Tigers. Both teams have taken care of business on their way to 3-0 marks. Miami is coming off three straight wins of 13 or more points, including a 52-10 thrashing of Florida State last week. Clemson has three consecutive wins of 18 points or more, including a 41-23 triumph over Virginia last Saturday.

Kickoff from Memorial Stadium in Clemson, S.C., is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The Hurricanes lead the all-time series 6-5, including a 2-0 mark in games played at Clemson. The Tigers are 14-point favorites in the latest Clemson vs. Miami odds from William Hill, while the over-under for total points scored is set at 62.5.

  • MIA: Has allowed just seven points off turnovers this season
  • CLEM: Has recorded multiple sacks in 25 of its last 26 games, including each of the last nine

Why Clemson can cover

After losing to LSU 42-25 in the National Championship Game this past January, the Tigers have a chip on their shoulders and have come out of the starting gates on fire. Junior quarterback Trevor Lawrence has completed 55 of 75 passes (73.3 percent) for 848 yards and seven touchdowns against zero interceptions for a rating of 199.1. He has also rushed for three scores. With 73 career passing touchdowns, Lawrence needs just three more to tie Russell Wilson for fifth-most in ACC history.

Senior running back Travis Etienne leads the team in rushing, carrying 39 times for 243 yards (6.2 average) and two touchdowns. In his four-year career, he has rushed for 4,281 yards and 58 touchdowns. Defensively, the Tigers are giving up just 12 points per game thus far in 2020. 

Why Miami can cover

Despite that, the Tigers are not a lock to cover the Miami vs. Clemson spread. That’s because the Hurricanes have also been dominant this season, and are one of just five unbeaten teams left in the 15-team ACC. Senior quarterback D’Eriq King has completed 63 of 94 passes (67 percent) for 736 yards and six touchdowns for a rating

Georgia vs. Tennessee odds, line: 2020 college football picks, predictions from model on 20-3 run

The No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs play host to the No. 14 Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday afternoon in Athens. Both teams sport a 2-0 record on the young season, with the Bulldogs blitzing the Auburn Tigers by a three-touchdown margin last week. On the same day, Tennessee throttled the Missouri Tigers by a 35-12 margin to remain unblemished, setting the stage for what should be an intriguing SEC East showdown. 

Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS. William Hill lists the Bulldogs as 12.5-point home favorites, while the over-under, or total number of points expected, is 43 in the latest Georgia vs. Tennessee odds. Before making any Tennessee vs. Georgia picks, check out the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $4,200 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It is a sizzling 20-3 on top-rated picks through five weeks of the 2020 college football season, returning over $1,300 in profit already. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Now, the model has set its sights on Tennessee vs. Georgia. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Georgia vs. Tennessee:

  • Georgia vs. Tennessee spread: Georgia -12.5
  • Georgia vs. Tennessee over-under: 43 points
  • Georgia vs. Tennessee money line: Georgia -500, Tennessee +400
  • UGA: The Bulldogs are 1-1 against the spread this season 
  • TENN: The Volunteers are 1-0-1 against the spread this season

Why Georgia can cover

Georgia has been one of the best defensive teams in the country this season, and Kirby Smart can hang his hat on that unit. Through two games, the Bulldogs lead the SEC in allowing only 248 yards per game, and they also sit atop the conference in rushing defense (58 yards allowed per game) and scoring defense (8.0 points allowed per game). From a national perspective, Georgia ranks in the top four in total defense, rushing defense and scoring defense, with highly-touted recruits all over the field. That manifested in a dominant performance against Auburn, allowing only 3.5 yards per play, and Tennessee is the SEC’s worst team so far this season on third down, converting only 28 percent of its chances. 

Offensively, Georgia leans on the running game, with Zamir White leading the SEC’s third-best rushing offense so far in 2020. Sophomore wide receiver Kearis Jackson leads the team with 15 catches for 209 yards, and sophomore wide receiver George Pickens snagged eight touchdown receptions in 2019 before generating two scores already this season. 

Why Tennessee can cover

Tennessee’s offense has excelled through two weeks, as the only team in the SEC to avoid an interception this season. Jarrett Guarantano is averaging 8.3 yards per attempt and, with Ty Chandler and Eric Gray leading the SEC’s second-best rushing offense, Tennessee has real balance.
