14 UCF @ Georgia Tech
Game time: 3:30 pm EST
Venue: Bobby Dodd Stadium – Atlanta, GA
Line: UCF – 7.5
The UCF versus Georgia Tech game should be an interesting one. On top of starting the season 1-0, Georgia Tech will get to play a rusty UCF team that did not play in week 1. Luckily for UCF, they have a future star at the quarterback position in Dillon Gabriel. Gabriel is a sophomore who passed for 3600 yards last season leading UCF to a 10-3 record. Coming into this game, Dillon Gabriel will look to take advantage of the weak defense of Georgia Tech and he should have no problem in doing so. This matchup seems to be a very one-sided game unless Georgia Tech can manage to not throw interceptions. Freshman quarterback Jeff Simms started off the season with a victory against Florida State although he did throw two interceptions in doing so. Turnovers will not be as acceptable versus such an offensively dominating UCF team. All in all, I believe that the UCF Knights will have no problem whatsoever against Georgia Tech and their win won’t be by a small margin.
Prediction: UCF 38 – Georgia Tech 10
Syracuse @ 25 Pittsburgh
Game time: 12:00p EST
Venue: Heinz Field -Pittsburgh, PA
Line: Pittsburgh – 21.5
This week, Syracuse will take on one of their biggest rivalries in the Pittsburgh Panthers. Pittsburgh started the season 1-0 and are the large favorites coming into this game. Although Syracuse started the season 0-1 they had a difficult matchup versus the UNC Tar Heels that got them to where they are. Pittsburgh may be a bit easier of a matchup for Syracuse, but they are still a much stronger team. In week 1, Pittsburgh showed off their offensive strength by destroying Austin Peay, 55-0. Syracuse certainly has a better defense than Austin Peay so they should have no problem keeping Pittsburgh under 50 points, although their offense is a concern. Syracuse only put up 6 points against UNC and if they play that poorly against Pittsburgh it won’t even be a competition. I think that Syracuse will easily beat the spread to this game but they will not be able to win the game.
Prediction: Pittsburgh 27 – Syracuse 14
