We take one last swing at the action on Saturday night football with what we hope is three-pack of spread winners. Check these selections out and see if they match what you are thinking.

We failed to have a winning record a week ago as our victory went to defeat when Marshall lost on a field goal as the game ended at UTSA. Cannot fret about that one, it happens and we move ahead to tear apart the college football odds.

Our record for college football picks after dark is 18-15-3 ATS for the season and we will attempt to finish with a flourish.

7:00 EST - Oregon State at Oregon on ESPN2

This contest is known as - The Civil War - and based on the fact Oregon is 25-point favorite, this should not be much of a contest in Eugene. Oregon State's 58-27 loss to pedestrian Colorado State club in their opener set the table for a rotten season at 1-10 (3-8 ATS). The Beavers defense is being shredded for 40.6 PPG which would be disastrous against Oregon. The Ducks got their regular starting quarterback Justin Herbert back from a broken collarbone and they ambushed Arizona 48-28 last week. When Hebert has played, Oregon has averaged 49.3 PPG and Oregon State is not built for shootouts.

7:30 EST - Clemson at South Carolina on ESPN

After betting against South Carolina in opener versus N.C. State, the Gamecocks caught my eye in how they played and what they do right. After that I wagered with them three other times, all as underdogs and cashed three tickets. South Carolina is taking care of the details on offense and defense which keeps them in contests. They convert on the big third downs and play great defense when they need that same third down stop. While I believe Clemson is the better squad, in spite of rivalry game, this means far more to the Gamecocks with the Tigers playing for a third consecutive ACC title and realistically having an opponent who can really challenge them in Miami. Because the game is in Columbia, the home team players will be talking about last year's 56-7 beat down and be ready to play and cover the number.

10:15 EST - Utah State at Air Force on ESPN2

This is not your typical Air Force team. They are not running the triple option with normal precision and have committed at least two turnovers in seven of their 11 contests. During their current three-game losing streak, the Flyboys are being outscored 31-11. Utah State on the other hand is playing well and are 3-1 SU and ATS, with only setback to Boise State, which is hardly a disgrace. With the Falcons a two-point favorite and being 3-11 ATS after trailing in their previous game by 17 or more points at the half, let's call for Utah State to win the game.
