A 2-0 Saturday allowed us to escape with another 5-4 slate for the week. That half-point beat with Wake against Duke stings.
On to this week’s best.Iowa St at Nebraska (tues): Natural letdown for Cyclones after stunning OT win at Texas. The Huskers will take the game more seriously now. NEBRASKA. Va Tech at Maryland (tues): Terps, off a bad loss at Miami, can’t afford any further slip ups. Hokies picked the wrong time to visit College Park. MARYLAND. Houston at Charlotte (wed): Charlotte, off home games with Louisville and Cincy, due for flat effort against improved Cougars. Points in our favor. HOUSTON. Missouri at UNLV (wed): There is actually a team playing worse than the Rebels. It’s Missouri! Also, Kruger knows Tigers from K-State coaching days. UNLV. Arizona at USC (thurs): Zona too good for Trojans. Hopefully line is less than 15. ARIZONA. Ga at Ky (sat): Worse than Gen. Sherman’s march. KENTUCKY. Harvard at Yale (sat): Crimson should bring out the best in host Bulldogs. YALE
Last week: 5-4.
Season: 23-17 (57.5%).
