While the vast majority of you gained an hour's sleep last Saturday night, we here in Arizona do not change our clocks, which means when I make some of these picks, I have to stay up later to get scores.

That is OK, as long the college football picks are winners. The last couple weeks these selections have been a bit sleepy and my record has slipped to 15-13-2 ATS.

Time to set up the old disco ball and get in the right groove and beat down the college football odds this week! Time to earn that money back from the sportsbooks and later hit the pillow a satisfied winner.

 

7:00 EST - UAB at UTSA on Local Cable

The best-least talked about story of the year is UAB. After shuttering the football program down after 2014 season because now attendance and costs, UAB boosters kicked in money, worked the circuit and brought football back from the dead. Bill Clark never really left after two years as the Blazers head coach and in first year back, UAB is 6-3 and going bowling. UTSA is an excellent defensive team which is why they are 7.5 point favorites. Nevertheless, UAB plays with a lot of passion, is 7-2 ATS this season and is No.8 nationally in 3rd down conversions and they beat the spread.

10:00 EST - Oregon State at Arizona on ESPN2

Arizona is a 21-point home favorite against Oregon State and the Beavers will be less than eager to take on Wildcats running game that could go the distance on any play. The Wildcats were expected to finish last in the Pac-12 South, but quarterback Khalil Tate literally changed the fortunes of the entire Arizona program and they are already bowl eligible. Arizona comes in 4th in country in rushing yards per game at 327 and Oregon State has allowed 184 or more rushing yards in seven of nine tries. Watch for Tate to break the Beavers will and the 'Cats win by 30.

 10:30 EST - Boise State at Colorado State on CBSSN

Colorado State had second half leads against the Air Force and Wyoming in past two games and could not hold either and lost outright. That makes the Rams 0-4 ATS in past four games and their season is on a definite slide. Juxtapose that scenario against Boise State. After dreadful home loss to Virginia, the Broncos have gotten settled on offense and defense and have definitive identities. Boise State on the season is holding opponents almost 70 yards below season average and during five-game winning streak (4-1 ATS), has held opposing teams to a mere 12.6 PPG. On offense, the passing game has finally gotten back in gear and the Broncos are nicely positioned to run roughshod over Colorado State and wins by 14 or more.
