Kickoff from Eugene will take place at 10:15 ET. Last Saturday was a day to rejoice and reminisce for the (2-3 SU, 3-2 ATS) UCLA Bruins.
Head coach Rick Neuheisel’s squad not only ended a three-game losing skid by taking down Washington State 28-3, but they defeated the Cougars at the Rose Bowl; a feat that had not been accomplished in the past ten years.
College football betting fans also had something to cheer about as UCLA covered the lofty 16-point spread per the closing NCAA odds; UCLA improved to 3-2 ATS this season. Freshman QB Kevin Craft finished the day with 225 yards on 23/36 passing and 2 TDs, while Sr. RB Kahlil Bell ran for 43-yards and a pair of TDs of his own.
What was most impressive for this UCLA team, who had been out-scored 126-41 in its three previous losses, was that the Bruins played turnover-free football and converted on 50-percent of their third down attempts.
While week-six was fun for some, for others such as the (4-2 SU, 3-3 ATS) Oregon Ducks, the minute their game went final, it was already time to forget about it. Oregon fell victim to the over-powered and highly motivated machine otherwise known as the USC Trojans.
Nothing was going to stop Southern Cal last Saturday after embarrassing themselves against Oregon State. While the Ducks came out strong, giving NCAA football betting followers hope by grabbing an early 7-0 lead that later turned into a 10-3 lead in the second quarter, USC scored the game’s final 41-points en route to the 44-10 final in Los Angeles.
Oregon has now lost three of its last four against the college football odds. Oregon’s defense allowed 598-yards of total offense, while the Ducks running game mustered up a paltry 60-yard on the ground. Said Bellotti after the game “I guess they answered the wake-up call after Oregon State”.
UCLA and Oregon have each won five of their last ten meetings, including last season’s 16-0 shutout in favor of the Bruins. This time around however, Oregon is a 17-point home favorite.
