FAU keeps up at Ohio State

Florida Atlantic opened its season with a 45-21 loss at Ohio State on Saturday. The Owls were able to cover a 27-point spread in the loss while pushing the 66-point total.

Ohio State took a 28-0 lead over FAU in just a matter of eight minutes on Saturday, but the Owls regrouped from there and outscored the Buckeyes 21-17 over the final three quarters of play. FAU gave up 469 yards to the Buckeyes while putting up just 228 yards of their own. The Owls had just 22 rushing yards. Quarterback Chris Robison threw for 178 yards and a touchdown to lead the offense while Harrison Bryant caught six passes for 79 yards.

UCF adds another dominant win

Central Florida opened its 2019 season with a 62-0 win over Florida A&M on Thursday night. The Knights covered a big 44-point spread in the victory while going under the 66-point total.

It would be hard for anyone to have a more lopsided win than what UCF had last week. The Knights put up 694 yards of offense while holding the Rattlers to just 96 total yards and only four rushing yards. The team debuted new QB Brandon Wimbush and he threw for 168 yards and two touchdowns in limited action. Adrian Killins Jr. led the team with 106 rushing yards and a touchdown while Gabriel Davis had three catches for 68 yards and two scores.

College Football Betting Trends

Florida Atlantic

The Owls are just 2-6 ATS in their last eight games on grass and 0-5 ATS in their last five games in September.

UCF

The Knights are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games on grass and 5-1 ATS in their last six road games.

Prediction:

Central Florida beat FAU last season, 56-36, at home, covering a 14-point spread. The Owls had some positives last week, but the Knights are proving they are an upper echelon program in college football. The offense continues to produce points with new players as the system UCF has is incredibly effective. UCF also has a defense that isn’t easy to move on. FAU isn’t suddenly going to break out this week just because it played Ohio State last week. The Knights should be able to handle this road spread and keep rolling along.

College Football Week 2 Prediction: UCF -10.5
