COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Alabama. According to latest college football trends, the Crimson Tide are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight neutral site games, 4-1 against the number in their last five games on fieldturf, and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 non-conference games. The Hokies, meanwhile, are 7-18-1 against the spread in their last 26 games overall, 1-3-1 ATS in their last five neutral site games, and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games. Alabama lost several key players from its national championship run last year but this program loses key players every year and still finds a way to dominate. Quarterback Aaron McCarron delivered 30 touchdown passes with only three interceptions last year and the Tide will once again have a dominant defense. Logan Thomas took a step back last season for VA Tech and he’ll have fewer weapons at his disposal in 2013. The Hokies will struggle to keep up.
