Jacksonville State (No Line) at Georgia Tech

NC State (+11.5) at South Carolina

Vanderbilt (+3) at Miami University
Winner straight up – Vanderbilt
Winner with points – Vanderbilt
Comment – Not going to pick this as the lock of the week, but I’m a little confused on why Vandy is a three-point dog – maybe because they are on the road, but I’m not sure. It looks wrong…

Boston College (-9.5) at Kent State
Winner straight up – Boston College
