Kent State, a 1-6 team, wins by 33. Idaho, a 1-7 team, wins by 6 as a 12½-point underdog.

And you thought I was going to boast about Penn State!

Tenn +6½ at S. Carolina: The Vols were pathetic on offense against Georgia. It won’t get any easier here. S. CAROLINA.

Air Force +10 at Army: Cadets have come on, especially on the defensive side. ARMY.

Miami -1 at Virginia: The Cavs are now the hunted and not the hunter. MIAMI.

Duke +7 at W. Forest: Vandy’s offense didn’t challenge Duke and neither will Wake’s. DUKE.

W. Virginia -4 at UConn: The Huskies a live home dog as they proved against Cincy. UCONN.

Iowa +1½ at Illinois: Iowa thinking Penn State in a week, but may escape this. IOWA.

Tulsa -7½ at Arkansas: The Hogs have problems with high-octane attacks. TULSA.

Colorado +3 at Texas A&M: Colorado limps in after Missouri bushwhacking. TEXAS A&M.

Clemson +5 at BC: Tigers showed some life with new coach vs. Georgia Tech. CLEMSON.

Florida +5½ vs Georgia: Strap Verne Lundquist down. A CBS game you won’t want to miss. I think the Georgia offense is peaking at the right time. GEORGIA.

San Jose St +16½ at Idaho: Two in a row for the Vandals! IDAHO.

Packers +5 at Titans: Look for a Titans letdown after big Monday nighter with Colts. PACKERS.

Eagles -7 at Seahawks: Beating Frisco doesn’t mean Seattle is back from the dead. EAGLES.

Texans +4½ at Vikings: Now my over 7½ wins bet with Houston looks more promising. TEXANS.

Falcons -3 at Raiders: If Atlanta doesn’t have those Eagles refs, they’ll be fine. FALCONS.

Jaguars -7 at Bengals: Jack Del Rio said he would straighten out the Jags this week. I hope so. JAGS.
