Game 1 and only:
Southern Miss to cover 28 points vs Nebraska: NOPE
Under 58 1/2 points: NOPE
Final score: 56-13 Nebraska
This week's matchup:
The University of Iowa Hawkeyes vs The State University of Iowa Cyclones
When: 5:00pm FARMING TIME
Where: Jack Trice Stadium, Ames, IA
History: 39-21 Iowa. They played in 1934 then not again until 1977 because during that time the state of Iowa seceded from the Union and was used as a corn repository. Also, that's the same period of time that the USA won WWII, so, yeah, maybe it should have stayed that way perhaps.
Significance: This happened in Ames two years ago. This is why Iowa can't have nice things.
Consensus Vegas Line (as of 10pm 6/13): Iowa by 2. Nope. Northern Iowa beat Iowa State in Ames. Northern Illinois beat Iowa in Iowa City. This proves nothing. Iowa State covers regardless. O/U is 48 1/2. These schools didn't play in 1948, let alone 1948 1/2. Under.
Iowa State 20 Iowa 17.
Question to Ponder: This game is the lead in to Oregon State–Utah on Fox Sports 1. Does Fox Sports 1 realize how ratings work?
What else: That trophy straight up broke in half. What a mess Iowa is.

Oregon Ducks vs Tennessee Volunteers
When: 12:30 PT, the drinking hour
Where: Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR
No time for other details. Straight to the betting!
Consensus Vegas Line: Oregon by 28. Sure, why not. O/U is 72 1/2. Oregon has scored 105 points in two games. Tennessee has scored 97 points in two games. Rocky Top can score a lot and still lose by four touchdowns. I believe in you Tennessee!!!
Oregon 49 Tennessee 24
Question to Ponder: ABC afternoon game with a shitload of points. Ratings gold!
