College Football Week 10 Top Games
Oregon (-1.5) at Washington
The preseason top two favorites to take the Pac-12 square off in Week 9. Oregon’s defense will look to create disruptive plays, a category where they struggled last season; the Ducks finished with 118th nationally in turnover margin in 2020. Washington returns all five starters on the offensive line and they’ll need it. Kayvon Thibodeaux is expected to be one of the most disruptive players in 2021 at defensive end for Oregon.
Oregon opened as a slight favorite, a number that could– and likely will– move over the course of the season. Last year’s matchup was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was a result of a rash of positive tests within the Washington program.
Texas at Iowa State (OTB)
There’s high hopes out there for Iowa State this coming season behind early-Heisman hopeful Breece Hall. Last season, Texas ranked second in the Big 12 in rushing yards allowed but return just two players in their front seven. They allowed the second-to-most passing yards a season ago, which could shift the ball into veteran Brock Purdy’s hands.
On the other end, Bijan Robinson faces an Iowa State defense that led the Big 12 in rushing yards allowed (eighth nationally). Eight starters on the defense return for the Cyclones, but that may not deter the Longhorns from operating a run-heavy scheme as they look to replace the hole left by Sam Ehlinger.
Army (OTB) vs. Air Force
Okay, admittedly this one is for the college football fan rather than the college football bettor. Are you into weird scorigami finishes? Then this game is for you. Since 2017, these teams finished with point totals of 21, 31, 30, and 17; due large in part to their triple-option offenses.
Army bested Air Force 10-7 in 2020 (yes, really) en route to their third Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy in four seasons. With Navy currently struggling to re-find their footing, this game could well be the decider of the 2021 trophy
