The best college football predictions for week 4
One of the college picks the model is high on in Week 4: No. 22 Texas (-7) takes to the streets and covers against Texas Tech in a matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET in Lubbock. The Longhorns have had a rollercoaster ride over the past two weeks, but they’ve taken positives from both games. They almost pulled off an unlikely upset against leaders Alabama two weeks ago, easily closing the 21-point spread.
Texas looked set to fall victim to trap play last week as UTSA took a 17-7 lead in the second quarter. The Longhorns responded by scoring 34 of the next 37 points in a 41-20 win and covering the span as 13-point favorites. Junior running back Bijan Robinson rushed for 183 yards and three touchdowns against UTSA for an average of 9.2 yards per carry.
Robinson faces a Texas Tech defense, coming from back-to-back games against ranked opponents, allowing at least 27 points in both competitions. SportsLine’s model shows Robinson rushing for more than 110 yards and a touchdown on Saturday afternoon, which is one of the reasons Texas covers the spread in almost 60% of the simulations.
Another model college football pick, No. 7 USC (-6) hits the road and covers against Oregon State in a matchup at 9:30 p.m. ET in Corvallis. USC’s offense is already clicking on all cylinders, averaging 40+ points in all three games this season. The Trojans are led by sophomore quarterback Caleb Williams, who completed 74.4% of his passes for 874 yards and eight touchdowns.
Oregon State’s defense looked shaky at times earlier in the year, yielding 28 points to Montana State and 32 points to Fresno State. The Beavers will struggle to beat the Trojans hit by hit on Saturday night. SportsLine’s model is expecting another big day from Williams as he throws for more than 320 yards and three touchdowns in the latest simulations.
Oregon State quarterback Chance Nolan isn’t having nearly as much success in the simulations, completing just 16 of 26 passes for under 240 yards and one interception. The Trojans are one of the strongest picks of the week, covering distribution in more than 70% of the simulations. See what other teams the model likes here.
