Fearless Rick's 2013-14 College Football Week 4 - Early Games

Welcome to the very best in winning NFL and College Football picks.
Rick Gagliano | September 19-21, 2013

All times Eastern - Click here for late games.

Thursday, September 19

7:30 pm Clemson (-13 1/2, 65 1/2) at North Carolina State - The Wolf Pack faces an uphill battle in the ACC opener for both teams. Clemson has scored 90 points in its first two games - including an opening week, 38-35 victory over Georgia - and has had an extra week to prepare, as has NC State.

The Wolf Pack have won just once in the last nine annual meetings, a 37-13 victory at home in 2011, so this is a match-up clearly favorable to the Tigers.

NC State is also just 1-5 ATS in its last six home games against Clemson, which appears to be the trend here.

Prediction: Tigers 50 Wolf Pack 28

Friday, September 20

9:00 pm Boise State at Fresno State (-3, 68) - Nice Mountain West meeting between the two teams favored to win their respective divisions has Fresno State a slight favorite over 2-1 Boise State, which has bounced back with a pair of victories after being overwhelmed in their season opener, 38-6, by Washington.

A much better team at home than on the road, Boise State will have its hands full trying to contain the Bulldog passing attack, which has averaged 332 yards in two wins without a loss.

Fresno State does not defend well, but their offense looks superior to that of Boise, which has had its ups and downs already this season. Though Boise is 5-1 ATS their last six at Bulldog Stadium, this season, the tide is turning against them.

Prediction: Bulldogs 37 Broncos 27

Saturday, September 21

12:00 pm North Carolina at Georgia Tech (-5 1/2, 61) - Off to a good start at 2-0, the Yellow Jackets should encounter a little more competition than they did in wins over Elon (70-0) and at Duke (38-14), last week.

North Carolina suffered an opening-weekend defeat at South Carolina, 27-10, but rebounded with a win over Middle Tennessee, 40-20, and have had an extra week for which to prepare.

The Tar Heels are a horrible road team, going 106 ATS their last seven away games, and the Yellow Jackets are 5-0 the last five home games in this series.

Georgia Tech's offense is difficult to contain and the Tar Heels don't have the firepower to stay with them for 60 minutes.

Prediction: Yellow Jackets 38 Tar Heels 23

3:30 pm Tennessee at Florida (-17 1/2, 47 1/2) - In what used to be a solid rivalry, back before the Gators won multiple championships with the likes of Tim Tebow, Florida gets home field and gives up a huge number to the visiting Vols, who were blown out at Oregon last week, 59-14.

However, these Gators have nothing in common with the Ducks offensively, in fact, they are averaging just 20 points per game this season and already have a loss on their slate - a 21-16 losing effort at Miami on Sept. 7.

Don't be fooled by the huge line. These teams are much closer talent-wise than might be perceived at first glance, though the Vols lack experience up front.

A close, low-scoring game is likely, with the Vols gaining confidence late and potentially springing the big upset against an overrated SEC rival.

Prediction: Volunteers 24 Gators 20

3:30 pm Utah State at USC (-6 1/2, 51) - It's the Mountain West visiting the PAC-12, featuring two teams with identical 2-1 records. USC lost two weeks back, in an unexpected, 10-7, home defeat to Washington State.

Utah State's lone loss is beginning to seem like ancient history, a 30-26 losing effort at Utah. Since then, the Aggies have come back with a pair of wins, including last week's trouncing of Weber State, 70-6, but they'll surely get a better defensive effort from the Trojans, who are averaging just 10 points allowed through their first three games.

USC has a backfield by committee, but many fresh bodies to throw into the attack. Multiple formations should confuse the Aggies and the proud USC defense won't likely give up more than one or two scores. PAC-12 is very solid this season and chalks up another non-conference victory.

Prediction: Trojans 28 Aggies 14

3:30 pm Purdue at Wisconsin (-24, 48) - Both teams are coming off losses in which they each displayed true grit and determination, the Boilermakers falling late to Notre Dame, 31-24, while the Badgers lost by a whisker at Arizona State, 32-30.

Comparatively speaking, Wisconsin's opponent was much more dangerous and talented than was Purdue's; also, the Badgers were on the road, while the Boilers had the benefit of home field, thus the expected huge spread here.

Look for Wisconsin to get back on track and register its first conference win of the season in a blowout.

Prediction: Badgers 38 Boilermakers 13

3:30 pm West Virginia at Maryland (-5 1/2, 52 1/2) - Many fans will be surprised to see the Terrapins as the favorite here, but they won their third straight this season with a nifty, 32-21 win at UConn last week after blowing away Florida International and Old Dominion.

The Mountaineers are not the same high-powered offense they were a year ago, after Geno Smith left for the NFL and a number of other starters graduated, leaving head coach Dana Holgersen's offense with plenty of questions and not a lot of answers.

With the ACC becoming a more balanced conference top-to-bottom, Maryland won't surprise many with a big home win here, though their defense may keep this a low-scoring affair.

Prediction: Terrapins 28 Mountaineers 17
