It is the last full weekend of college football, rather sad isn't it? At least it goes out with bang on rivalry week and we have two games that fit that perfectly along with big contest in the Sun Belt.

Everything has not gone according to plan for our college football picks with a 18-15-1 ATS record, but it's better than losing and if we can sweep the board, that gives a nice year to this point.

In looking at the college football odds for Saturday, I have two underdogs and one favorite that look strong.

Georgia Preps Nicely for SEC Title Tilt

In the south, the Georgia and Georgia Tech rivalry is known as - Clean, Good Old Fashion Hate. Georgia still has a great deal to play for with SEC championship next week and is hoping for CFP bid and they need to take down their rivals to stay on track. The Bulldogs have the front seven to disrupt Georgia Tech's triple option and they cannot be slow like they were against Auburn. The secondary nickname of Georgia Tech has been appropriate this season, a 'Rambling Wreck'. The Yellow Jackets have blown numerous second half leads and turned what could have been a special year into an average one. With the visitor a remarkable 12-1-1 ATS and 9-5 SU, I will back the Dawgs.

North Carolina Makes N.C. State Uncomfortable

N.C. State is a deserving 16-point home favorite over their cross-state rivals North Carolina. The Wolfpack have the better offense and defense coming in this contest and should handle the Tar Heels with ease. However, after starting 6-1, N.C. State has dropped three off four and while there is nothing wrong with losing to Notre Dame and Clemson, if the Wolfpack was really that good, they should not have struggled with Boston College and lost to Wake Forest the last couple games. On the other end of the spectrum, UNC is coming off consecutive wins and is on a 3-0 ATS run which, includes a cover over Miami-Fl. While I am not calling for upset, the Heels are 8-4 SU and ATS in Raleigh and cover the spread.

Sun Belt Showdown Goes To Home Dog

Currently, there is four-way tie for first place in the Sun Belt Conference and either visiting Appalachian State or Georgia State will remain in the hunt after this confrontation. Both teams are rested and coming off byes. The Mountaineers average 30.7 PPG on the season, yet when on the road, the offense is not as potent and they slide to 25 PPG. Additionally, on defense, App. State allows better than 11 PPG more away from home, which all leads to disappointing 0-5 ATS road record. Though Georgia State's pass offense is good enough to be ranked 28th nationally, they only average 21.9 PPG (26.3 PPG in SBC), but they are capable of outburst and I will call for them to win this skirmish outright.
