Utah St. at Tennessee (-6) 7:00 ET SECTV
This Utah St. program barely missed a beat last season, posting a 9-5 SU, 8-5 ATS log. In so doing, they outgained opponents by an average of 412-341 and outscored them by an average count of 32-17. This, in the face of transitioning to now 2nd year HC Wells and losing “do everything” QB Keaton for the last half of the season. Now, QB Keaton has returned, purportedly at full health, while the Vols return just 5 starters to each side of the ball and feature no returning starters along either line. Though Utah St. has lost to Auburn, Wisconsin and USC, in early high-profile games each of the last 3 seasons, none of those defeats has been by more than 4 points. Live underdog vs. inexperienced super-power conference team!
