COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Hawaii is 4-1 ATS L5 on the road in series. Last year: Byu (-8) over HAWAII, 41-20. This won’t be a pretty sight. BYU is struggling to score as QB Riley Nelson is questionable to start with a rumored back issue. Last week, BYU scored just six points at Boise State (7-6 loss) as Nelson turned it over four times. Freshman Taysom Hill could also play if Nelson isn’t ready. Hawaii has their own issues, falling to Nevada, 69-24 and USC 49-10 sandwiched by a win over FCS Lamar 54-2. Their defense has been awful but they face a team that will struggle to put up 20+ points against anybody, while Hawaii will score enough to cover.
