Perfection

Central Florida – 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS
The Knights will have a week off before a huge game on Sept. 28 at home against South Carolina.

Maryland
 – 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS
If the Terrapins beat West Virginia at home this Saturday, they'll have two weeks to get ready for a road trip to Florida State on Oct. 5.

Oregon – 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS
The Ducks have looked sharp on both sides of the ball and only three of the remaining nine games look tough -- at Washington, vs. UCLA, at Stanford.

Texas Tech – 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS
Looking at the schedule, the Red Raiders could be 7-0 before they visit Oklahoma on Oct. 26.

Fade Alert

New Mexico State – 0-3 SU, 0-3 ATS
The Aggies have allowed 56, 44 and 42 in their first three games. In Week 4, they travel to UCLA.

Florida International – 0-3 SU, 0-3 ATS
In Week 3, the Golden Panthers lost at home 34-13 to Bethune Cookman.  This Saturday, FIU travels to Louisville.

Trending Over

A dozen teams have seen the ‘over’ cash in their first three games due to explosive offensive units or inept defensive fronts.

LSU – New offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has helped LSU put up 37, 56 and 45 points. Another shootout is on deck with Auburn and Gus Malzahn visiting Baton Rouge on Saturday.

Oregon – The Ducks are the most explosive team in college, evidenced by their 61.3 points per game average. Oregon gets a week off before conference play starts on Sept. 28.

Utah State – After losing to Utah 30-26 in Week 1, the Aggies have outscored their next two opponents 122-26. In Week 4, Utah State can put itself on the national map with a road victory against USC.

Under like Thunder

Through three weeks of the season, 14 teams have seen the ‘under’ cash in all three of their matchups and there are a couple major programs included in that group.

Louisville – Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and the Cardinals get all the hype and deservingly so, but the defense has only surrendered 27 points in three games. With FIU visiting next week, another solid performance should be expected.

USC – The Trojans have a “vanilla” offense and a stout defense, which translates to low-scoring games. This week’s home game against Utah State will be the toughest test to date for the USC defense.

On the Rise

Every Sunday, Brian Edwards updates the VegasInsider.com Top 25. After watching the action this weekend, UCLA made the biggest jump from 19th to 9th. Another school on the rise was Ole Miss, who moved from 22nd to 17th in the VI rankings. Along with the Rebels, six other schools from the SEC were ranked in the latest poll.
