Expert Predictions for 2021 College Football Week 2
Appalachian State @ University of Miami (-7.5)
So, the Miami Hurricanes were totally humiliated by the University of Alabama last week. And now awaiting the Canes is an Appalachian State team that Power 5 schools have notoriously had issues beating. Appalachian State is on a totally different level than Alabama, and we’re in no way saying that they’re near the same level as the Tide.
Miami is better than what they showed last week, and we should see it in this week’s game. The Appalachian State defense won’t be nearly as good as Alabama’s, so we should see D’Eriq King play much better. King and his offense will be too much for App State. The Hurricanes win this one by at least 14.
UTEP @ Boise State (-27.5)
For the first time since 2014, the Boise State Broncos lost their opener. They didn’t play well, and Central Florida took advantage. On Friday night, they’ll face a UTEP squad that is looking to start the season 3-0.
While UTEP is unbeaten, their victories have been against New Mexico State and Bethune-Cookman. Neither of those two teams are the caliber of Boise State. Boise didn’t play well last week, and they’ll be looking to take out their frustrations on someone.
When favored by 21 or more points, Boise State is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games. We think it’ll be 7-0, so we’re going to take Boise State to cover.
Iowa @ Iowa State (-3.5)
In the battle for the CyHawk Trophy, these two will duke it out in their annual showdown. Both teams are ranked inside the Top 25. Iowa State is one of the top teams in the Big 12 this season. They didn’t play like it last week, as they barely survived the Northern Iowa Panthers, beating them 16-10.
As for the Hawkeyes, they surprised everyone by dominating the Indiana Hoosiers 34-6. Many felt that this would be a close game and could go either way. Iowa will grind out the clock and will keep the ball out of Iowa State’s hands.
The underdog has won 10 of the last 15 meetings. Six of the last nine matchups have been decided by six points or less. We’re going with the dog in this one and picking the Iowa Hawkeyes to come to Ames and upset the Iowa State Cyclones.
Texas (-6) @ Arkansas
The 21st-ranked Longhorns began the Steve Sarkisian era by defeating #23 Louisiana. Arkansas struggled with Rice but pulled away late. This one will be a tough one on the road for the Longhorns, but we like them to cover. They won’t win by more than 10, but we see them winning by more than six.
