No. 1-3

BC was down 14 points heading into the fourth quarter against TXST and won by three; holding its opponent to zero points of any kind in the fourth quarter last week. BC will win this game


I am really surprised that NC is ranked so high. A 7-6 team from last year. This year they have one win against a hapless Cuse. Watch those highlights. They played pretty much even against SYR through 3 quarters. I don't get it, but I will take the points!


Seems reasonable, about what I figured it would be. Honestly not bad considering it’s against a top 15 team!
