On Labor Day afternoon, Hill’s Bulldogs (9-4 in 2007) will take their show east to Piscataway, New Jersey to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (8-5 in 2007). College football betting fans can view the game nationally on ESPN, and kickoff is set for 4:00 PM.
Both teams garnered some attention from the AP voters in their pre-season poll, as Fresno State received 83 votes and fell just two short of cracking the Top-25, while Rutgers managed 32 votes.
Fresno State had yet another successful season out of the WAC in ’07. Their college football betting fans went 7-5 ATS on the year, including a 3-1 mark against the NCAA football betting line in non-conference action.
Seventeen starters return from the 2007 Bulldogs, stirring up a lot of speculation that Fresno State could make it three consecutive seasons that a WAC team qualified for a BCS game (Hawaii in 2007 and Boise State in 2006). Scarlet Knights HC Greg Schiano deserves all the credit in the world for making winners out of the lovable losers out of tiny Piscataway.
Though they went 8-5 SU in ’07, NCAA football betting followers weren’t as fortunately, mustering an average 6-6 mark against the college football betting line. Rutgers non-conference home games have been money for football bettors in recent years. They went 2-1 ATS last year at home in non-conference games, and are 4-1-1 over the past three seasons.
