Saturday

Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns at Texas A&M Aggies
Line: Louisiana +23.5

Forget about covering the spread -- it looked as if Louisiana might win outright and upset Texas A&M on Saturday. The Ragin' Cajuns led 21-14 at halftime after holding the Aggies to minus-22 rushing yards in the first two quarters.

The second half would be a completely different story, though. Louisiana was outgained by 271 yards, and it was even worse on the scoreboard. Texas A&M scored all 31 points after halftime and won by 24, covering the spread by half a point.

Final score: Texas A&M 45, Louisiana 21 (Texas A&M covers by 0.5 points)

Tennessee Volunteers at Florida Gators
Line: Tennessee +5.5

It was the quite the finish in Gainesville on Saturday. After three quarters of no-touchdown football, Tennessee and Florida lit up the scoreboard in the final 15 minutes.

After trailing by 10 late in the game, Tennessee rallied to tie it with 50 seconds left. Those who took the Volunteers +5.5 were hoping for a Florida game-winning field goal or for time to run out, pushing the game to overtime. They got neither. In a play that will be shown for years to come, Feleipe Franks threw a walk-off 63-yard touchdown to Tyrie Cleveland that gave the Gators a six-point win.

Final score: Florida 26, Tennessee 20 (Florida covers by 0.5 points)

Oregon Ducks at Wyoming Cowboys
Line: Over/under 66

Oregon's offense is starting to look like it has in recent years, and people are taking notice. This over/under opened in the high 50s before closing at 66.
