College Football 3:30 Kickoff: Ohio State at Michigan State, Tennessee at Georgia

Ohio State at Michigan State: Mark Dantonio really hopes the passing game will get going. Le’Veon Bell, checking his NFL odometer with 129 touches and a game to play in September, would hope so as well. This is a big game perception-wise for Michigan State, hoping to make some headway recruiting in Ohio.¬† Both offenses face defenses that can shut them down. The question, really, is whether you like Michigan State to gut it out at home or Braxton Miller to pull out a rabbit. Unrelated but interesting, Ohio State plans to play not one but two viable opponents in non-conference play every year. It is sad that seems revolutionary.

Tennessee at Georgia: If Georgia plays to its potential for four quarters, this could be a rough day for Tennessee. The Vols’ defense, 79th in yards allowed per play against FBS, has to cope with Heisman contender Aaron Murray and a pair of first-class freshman running backs (Isaiah who?). The Vols’ offense has to cope with Jarvis Jones and the Bulldog’s confusing blitz packages out of the 3-4. Georgia’s unit has not been dominant statistically so far, though getting Alec Ogletree and Bacarri Rambo back will be a huge lift. Tennessee will need to hope Georgia gets caught looking ahead to South Carolina.

Upset Special? We picked Boston College (+9) vs. Clemson. Despite an 80/20 public tilt toward Clemson, Vegas lowered the line again to Clemson (-7) with Sammy Watkins not making the trip.
