UCF vs. Temple (+10.5), 7 pm EDT on ESPN2
The Temple Owls have been an unprecedented force in the American. Coach Rod Carey has led the Owls to an undefeated record at home and are 4-3-0 ATS. While their home record is impressive, they'll be up against another high-powered offense with UCF. UCF has dominated Temple in their past two outings by double digits. Regardless of the outcome, Temple is going to keep this game in single digits. They're too good at home and prove they can contain high-powered offenses like Memphis who scored only twenty-eight points. Ultimately, the Knights still win this game but by a touchdown.
Pick: Temple (+10.5)
USF vs. ECU (+2.5), 3:45 pm EDT on ESPNU
I'm a bit surprised that ECU isn't favored. They've been playing good football for the past month and have kept it close with American powerhouses Temple and UCF. On the other side, USF is coming off a blowout loss to Navy, which held them without a touchdown. There's just a lot more upside with the ECU offense. Also, USF has scored ten points or less three times this season.
Pick: ECU (+2.5)
