COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the over. According to latest college football trends, the over is 5-1 in the Wolf Pack’s last six games versus the Pac-12 and 5-2 in their last seven games overall. The over is also 6-1 in the Bruins’ last seven games overall and 5-1 in their last six games on grass. Nevada has plenty of holes to fill offensively but the team will return quarterback Cody Fajardo and Brandon Wimberly, and will face a UCLA program that lost its entire secondary to graduation. Meanwhile, the Bruins have a special player in quarterback Brett Hundley, who threw for 3,745 yards and compiled 38 total touchdowns a year ago for UCLA. While losing Jonathan Franklin to the NFL hurts, Hundley is in store for another mammoth year and it starts tonight versus a suspect Nevada defense.
