Harry Gagnon’s Hidden Week 8 College Football Gems

Harry Gagnon’s Hidden Week 8 College Football Gems

My Hidden Gems are games that may not tickle your fancy but they certainly catch my eye. Since I have started “the gems,” I have yet to have a losing week.​

Troy -15 @ South Alabama

1. Troy QB Kaleb Barker has 14 TDs and WR Kaylon Geiger has 30 receptions and three total touchdowns.

2. Last year Troy won this game by 21 points on the road and forced three interceptions.

3. South Alabama is 0-12 straight up in its last 12 games on the road.

4. Troy is 13-2 straight up in its last 15 conference games.

5. The Jaguars of South Alabama are only 1-7 ATS on the road after covering in their most recent road game. They covered in their last against Georgia Southern, as they were getting 12 and lost by three in overtime.

Prediction: Troy 36, South Alabama 16

Boise State @ BYU UNDER 50.5

1. In last season’s game between these two teams, they combined for 37 points, and the previous year only 31 points were scored.

2. BYU changed QBs last week and Jaren Hall only had 148 yards passing.

3. Four of the last five BYU home games have gone UNDER.

4. BYU and Boise have gone UNDER in three straight head-to-head games with an average of only 41 points.

5. Eight of the last 11 Boise State games have gone UNDER and three straight Broncos games vs an Independent have gone UNDER.

Prediction: Boise State 22, BYU 20

Air Force @ Hawaii OVER 63

1. In three of the last four Rainbows games, one of the teams playing has scored 52 or more points.

2. Hawaii QB Cole McDonald will go over 2,000 yards passing for the season in this game and he also has 20 TDs.

3. Hawaii WR Cedric Byrd has nine of those TDs and has almost 600 yards receiving.

4. Two of Air Force’s last three games have gone OVER 63 points.

5. The Falcons have two running backs (Taven Birdow and Kadin Remsberg) who have over 440 rushing yards each and both average over five yards a carry. They have combined for seven rushing TDs.
