Senior Dontravious Wilson has rushed for 371 yards and seven touchdowns, while Milton has plenty of options in the passing game. Tre’Quan Smith leads the team with 23 catches for 360 yards and three scores, tight end Jordan Akins (15 catches, 278 yards, two TDs) is a steady target and freshman Dredrick Snelson (eight catches, 107 yards, TD) is emerging as a threat.

Miami-FL Hurricanes vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

When: 3:30 PM ET, Saturday, October 29, 2016
Where: Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Indiana
TV: 3:30 p.m., NBC. Line: Miami -2.5

Miami Preview (4-3):

Brad Kaaya (1,696 yards, 61.7 percent completion rate, 12 touchdown passes) threw for 323 yards in Miami’s 37-16 loss to Virginia Tech but was sacked eight times due to a combination of poor protection and holding the ball too long. Running backs Mark Walton (618 yards, 5.4 per carry) and Joe Yearby (493, 6.8) have been less productive during the losing streak, one of several reasons the offense has been unable to sustain drives – Miami is 120th in FBS in time of possession (25 minutes per game). The Hurricanes, ranked No. 1 in tackles for losses (10.1 per game), faced the Hokies without four key defensive starters last week, including standout linemen Chad Thomas and Demetrius Jackson and cornerback Sheldrick Redwine, but Richt said he expects some of the missing to return Saturday.
Team record: 4-3 SU,4-3 ATS
Current Streak: lost 3 straight games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Miami-FL’s last 7 games on the road

Notre Dame (2-5):

Behind dual-threat quarterback DeShone Kizer (285 yards rushing, 1,775 passing), whose running ability matches the previous three signal-callers who burned Miami, the Irish averaged 40.4 points in starting 2-3 but totaled only 13 in losses to North Carolina State and Stanford. Kizer, benched briefly against the Cardinal after throwing two interceptions – including a pick-six, has a big-play receiver in Equanimeous St. Brown (31 receptions, 19.7 yards per catch) while Josh Adams (416 yards, 4.7 yards per carry) leads the running attack. The defense, keyed by linebackers Nyles Morgan and James Onwualu (five tackles for losses), has made strides since coordinator Brian VanGorder was fired – especially in keeping Stanford out of the red zone until the fourth quarter and forcing a season-high three turnovers.
Team record: 2-5 SU,2-5 ATS
Notre Dame is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games
Notre Dame is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone OVER in 6 of Notre Dame’s last 9 games

When: 7:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 29, 2016
Where: Camp Randall Stadium, Madison, Wisconsin
TV: 7 p.m. ET, ESPN. LINE: Wisconsin -8.5.

Nebraska Preview (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten):

Armstrong, who can move into sole possession of third place in school history for career wins by a quarterback this weekend (tied with three others at 29), needs 11 yards to become the 11th player in conference history to reach 10,000 yards of total offense, and he’s also 245 yards away from breaking the school’s career total offense record. Jordan Westerkamp (back) will return from a two-game absence and tie Nebraska legend Johnny Rodgers (143) for third place in school annals with his next catch. Leading rusher Terrell Newby is 129 yards shy of becoming the 29th Cornhusker to run for 2,000 career yards and has amassed 235 of his 324 rushing yards over the last three contests in the fourth quarter.
Team record: 7-0 SU,4-2-1 ATS
Current Streak: won 7 straight games.
Nebraska is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Nebraska’s last 5 games
Nebraska is 13-3 ATS in its last 16 games on the road

Wisconsin Preview (5-2, 2-2):

The Badgers will be without linebacker Jack Cichy (team-high 60 tackles) after he suffered a torn pectoral muscle against Iowa, making him the latest injury casualty to a unit that already lost inside linebacker Chris Orr for the season. They will also be without nose tackle Olive Sagapolu and possibly even cornerbacks Derrick Tindal and Natrell Jamerson. Corey Clement is the Big Ten’s second-leading rusher (102.8 yards) and has compiled 298 yards on 60 carries over the last two games. Senior quarterback Bart Houston, who lost his job to freshman Alex Hornibrook in mid-September, saw his first action in four games versus the Hawkeyes, throwing for Wisconsin’s only passing touchdown on the team’s first possession.
Team record: 5-2 SU,6-1 ATS
Wisconsin is 8-1 ATS in its last 9 games
Wisconsin is 12-3 SU in its last 15 games
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Wisconsin’s last 5 games

Auburn Preview (5-2, 3-1 SEC):

Sophomore running back Kerryon Johnson (ankle) could return to the lineup to add another major threat to a rushing attack that ranks third in the nation at 302.9 yards per contest. Sophomore Kamryn Pettway has recorded 361 of his 697 rushing yards and five of his six touchdowns on the ground the past two games for the Tigers. Sophomore quarterback Sean White has been very efficient, completing 68.5 percent of his passes with seven TD strikes and two interceptions while senior Tony Stevens has a team-high 24 receptions.

Kelly threw for 381 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the 27-19 victory over Auburn last year and is completing 62.2 percent of his passes this season with 15 TDs and seven interceptions. Kelly has plenty of weapons but his main target is senior Evan Engram, who leads all tight ends in the nation in receiving yards with 605 on 40 receptions with five scores. Senior Akeem Judd leads the ground attack with 382 yards and four TDs, although he has reached 100 in a game just once this season and Kelly is second on the team in rushing (269).
Team record: 3-4 SU,3-4 ATS
The total has gone UNDER in 13 of Mississippi’s last 17 games

New Mexico Lobos vs. Hawaii Warriors

When: 11:59 PM ET, Saturday, October 29, 2016
Where: Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union Field at Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, Hawaii

New Mexico Preview (4-3)

New Mexico was a 59-17 winner in their most recent outing at home against Warhawks. They covered the -15.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score (76) made winners of OVER bettors. The week before they beat Air Force 45-40. The Lobos have been a good scoring team this year averaging 38 points a game which ranks 18th in the country. Where New Mexico excels is in running the ball. They are the topped ranked team in FBS averaging 365 yards rushing yards per game. No reason to think they will do less than that against Hawaii. Where New Mexico has problems is on the defensive side of the ball. You would think a team that dominates the run like they do would have such a ball control advantage that the other team would not be able to score. In fact, New Mexico ranks 106th in defensive points allowed averaging 36 per game.

New Mexico:
Team record: 4-3 SU,3-4 ATS
New Mexico is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games
The total has gone OVER in 5 of New Mexico’s last 5 games
New Mexico is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games on the road
New Mexico is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games
The total has gone OVER in 5 of New Mexico’s last 5 games
New Mexico is 1-4 SU in its last 5 games on the road

Hawaii Preview (4-4)

The Warriors offense has been decent, scoring 29 points a game which ranks 54th in the country. However, the Hawaii defense has been pathetic. They give up an average of 38 points per game which ranks 114th in FBS. No, that defense will not be able to slow down the New Mexico running game. What Hawaii has going for it is that they will be playing and equally bad defense. Should be a wild game in Honolulu…by the way I used to live there and if you ever get a chance to go..go!. Go find a place away from the tourist and get a plate lunch. Go to the beach and drink a few Heinekens. Learn how to speak pigeon. And, if your as white as me get the SPF 25 on.

Team record: 4-4 SU,5-2 ATS
Hawaii is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games
Hawaii is 4-2 SU in its last 6 games
