COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest college football trends, Louisville has hit the under in 11 of its last 15 home games and Ohio has hit the under in 6 of its last 9 road games. On paper, you might be compelled to take the over, as both teams have veteran quarterbacks that are capable of putting up big numbers, but both defenses are a bit underrated and both have a lot of returning starters. Louisville should be fast in the pass game and keep Ohio QB Tyler Tettleton from taking over. Teddy Bridgewater may have a good game, but he can’t post 58 points on his own. Look for this game to go under the point total.
