COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest college football trends, the Seminoles have hit the under in 7 of their last 9 road games while FSU is 0-6 against the spread in its last 6 road games. The under seems like the right play here. The two teams are breaking new quarterbacks and both had solid defensive play a year ago. Florida Stat may be able to score some points, but I see Pitt struggling to move the ball consistently with an offense that has so many new pieces at the skill positions. Florida State’s defense should be the story of this contest.
