COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take San Diego State. According to latest college football trends, Ohio State is 0-4 in its last four games versus the Mountain West, 0-4 in its last four non-conference games, and 1-4 ATS in its last five games versus a team with a losing record. San Diego State, meanwhile, is 5-1 against the number in its last six road games and 8-3 ATS in its last 11 road games versus a team with a winning home record. There's no defense for being blown out by a FCS team at home, but it's more likely that the Aztecs were caught looking ahead to the Buckeyes than an indication that San Diego State is a horrible team. Plus, Ohio State wasn't that sharp at home last week against Buffalo despite the 20-point victory. Look for the Aztecs to cover the huge number.
