Playing in the Boca Raton Bowl against Syracuse, South Florida has somewhat of a home game here, playing in Boca Raton.
So far, Syracuse is set to be without six players in this one, all of whom are on defense. The list includes edge rusher Leon Lowery.
Syracuse fired their head coach, Dino Barbers, and their quarterback, Garrett Shrader, will miss this game due to injury.
In his place is Braden Davis, a quarterback who’s attempted just one pass in his college football career. That pass went for -6 yards.
Syracuse’s defense also allows over 25 points per game. While South Florida is worse than that in the 30s, it’s unclear how Syracuse scores unless they rely on the ground game.
It’s doable, but South Florida quarterback Byrum Brown can pass (64.5% completion rate, 23 touchdowns, 7.7 yards per attempt) and run (953 rushing yards, 11 touchdowns).
Take the points with South Florida here against an inexperienced quarterback.

While UCF quarterback John Rhys Plumlee missed several games this season due to injury, he returned in Week 8. Over his last six starts, he’s had five games with at least 248 passing yards. In that same stretch, he’s had three multi-passing touchdown games.
Georgia Tech allows 32.1 points to opposing offenses. At the same time, UCF has been much more stout on defense, giving up just 13.3 over their last three games.
Georgia Tech does score 29.6 per game, but they also allow 228.4 rushing yards per game, which is fourth-most in all of college football.
Rhys Plumlee can also run. This year, he had 522 rushing yards and five scores in somewhat limited action. Also, running back RJ Harvey had 1,300 yards and 16 touchdowns this season.
The quarterback play and rushing attack from UCF will do more than enough against a soft Georgia Tech defense.

It’s sad to say, but pig farmer and Utah quarterback Bryson Barnes is hitting the transfer portal and won’t play in this game. Instead, it appears that Brandon Rose, a redshirt freshman, will go.
Rose has never attempted a pass in college football, but he will go up against a Northwestern defense that allows 159.3 rushing yards (72nd) and 24.2 points (50th) per game. They’ve been solid against the pass this season, allowing 194.2 per game, though that average is 247.7 over their last three.
Still, the game plan here for Utah will undoubtedly be to run the ball against a soft Northwestern defense.
Northwestern certainly has a chance here with several defensive players for Utah opting out, including, potentially, two-way star Sione Vaki, but their offense just hasn’t had a lot of impact players this season, averaging 22.7 points per game, which is 93rd in college football.
Look for a lower-scoring game here as Utah runs the ball effectively and comes away with a win. Don’t take the points. Settle for lower line value.
