COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Florida State is 20-12 ATS vs. non-conf. teams. Florida State has one of the most talented teams in the nation. They are 4-0 and have now matched last season’s total of 20 rushing touchdowns in just four games. Soph. James Wilder Jr. and long with senior Chris Thompson and an improved offensive line helps. QB E.J. Manuel also averages 7.5 yards per carry. South Florida is coming off a demoralizing 31-27 loss at Ball State last week, which was their second straight loss. USF qb B.J. Daniels threw for 312 yards last week with three TDs, but also had two picks. Not a good sign and he led the team in rushing with 75 yards.
