In recognition of the holidays, I am foregoing my usual Friday post and moving the Saturday post up a day.
This week, there are five games about which Vegas and the model are more than 4 points apart. That Maryland is again on the list goes to show that the model still hasn't learned that the fifth string quarterback isn't actually a thing. The model was also expecting Matt Barkley to be playing, which explains the varying expectations for USC/Notre Dame. The model has been a Duck doubter all season - it isn't impressed by flashy uniforms - until last week. Oops. And the model likes Iowa State and Georgia because it "thinks" they are good at football.
