OUR PICK: The quarterbacks for both teams didn't play that well last week but both defenses appear to be in good early-season form. The under is 8-3 in the Hurricanes' last 11 road games and is 41-18 in their last 59 non-conference games. The under is also 7-1 in the Mountaineers' last eight non-conference games and is a perfect 7-0 in their last seven games in September.
