COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Washington. According to latest college football trends, the Huskies are 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, and 4-1 ATS in their last five games on fieldturf. The Broncos are also 1-4 against the number in their last five games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six games on fieldturf. These two teams played in the MAACO Bowl in Las Vegas last year and the Broncos pulled away for a 28-26 victory. But Huskies running back Bishop Sankey ran all over Boise in that game while accounting for 279 all-purpose yards, and should use that performance to catapult him into another great season. Both he and senior quarterback Keith Price will be difficult to stop, even for a Boise defense that allowed just four passing touchdowns all of last season. It’s tempting to take the Broncos and the points, but look for the Huskies to cover at home in a revenge spot.
