What you need to know about East Carolina
Last year was nothing to brag about for East Carolina (4-8), so the squad is looking forward to a new start. Holton Ahlers is back at quarterback after throwing for 3,387 yards and 21 touchdowns with 10 interceptions while rushing for 359 yards and six scores.

His top two receivers C.J. Johnson and Blake Proehl are both back as well and that should make the ECU offense competitive in its season opener. However, the Pirates will need to make significant strides defensively in Mike Houston’s second season after giving up at least 462 yards of total offense in each of the last seven games of the season in 2019.

What you need to know about UCF
The Knights were 10-3 last season and are coming off of a 49-21 win against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday. Dillon Gabriel threw for 417 yards and four touchdowns in the victory and Marlon Williams was his top target with 10 catches for 154 yards and two touchdowns. Williams had five catches for 78 yards against East Carolina last season, while Gabriel threw for 365 yards and two touchdowns.

A couple last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: East Carolina ranked 12th worst in the nation with respect to yards allowed per game last year, where the team gave up 469.3 on average. To make matters even worse for East Carolina, UCF was second best in the nation in yards per game, finishing the 2019 season with 540.5 on average.

Kentucky vs Auburn

Kentucky vs Auburn: In the midst of all the nonsense that 2020 has brought us all, SEC football will be returning to us on Saturday. With it comes an abbreviated 10-game all-conference slate, and for the Auburn Tigers and Kentucky Wildcats, they begin anew against one another.

The Tigers and Wildcats each had successful seasons a year ago. Auburn defeated their archrivals, the Alabama Crimson Tide, and celebrated a nine-win season. Kentucky went 8-5 and went to a bowl game yet again, as they continue to go on an upward trend. Both teams are pretty intriguing heading into this season for many different reasons, so this will be a nice test for each side to open the year.

Auburn has a loaded offense, especially at wide receiver. Bo Nix will have plenty of talented wideouts to throw to, as Seth Williams, Anthony Schwartz, Eli Stove and Shedrick Jackson represent one of the best receiving corps in the entire conference. Their running backs ain’t half bad either, as Shaun Shivers and DJ Williams return after stout 2019 campaigns.

Meanwhile, UK has an assembly of talented runners. Asim Rose, Chris Rodriguez Jr. and Kavosiey Smoke combined for nearly 2,000 yards on the ground last year, and all are back and good to go this year. They would have former Auburn quarterback Joey Gatewood, but alas, the SEC is dragging their tail with his transfer appeal. So, they will instead likely have to put it in the hands of Terry Wilson. Look for Josh Ali to be Wilson’s primary pass catcher once they open up the passing game.

Auburn and Kentucky were each in the Top 20 in scoring defense a season ago and each do return a decent amount of their talent from 2019. They’re both absent strong defenders in Derrick Brown and Josh Allen, who are now of course starring in the NFL. It will be intriguing to see though if each compensated for their ‘weakness’ from a season ago. Kentucky was oftentimes cut up on the ground, while Auburn let up over 213 passing yards per game.

Granted, both lean more towards average than abhorrent, but we’ll see if those spots can be taken advantage of. If I were to hazard, Auburn probably has a much likelier chance of attacking Kentucky’s run defense versus UK’s ability to throw the football against Auburn’s pass D. But I’ve been wrong before.

Florida vs Ole Miss

Florida vs Ole Miss: The fifth-ranked Florida Gators and the Ole Miss Rebels kick off the 2020 SEC college football season with an inter-division matchup Saturday in Oxford, Miss. The Gators went 11-2 last season in coach Dan Mullen’s second season, and Kyle Trask brought needed stability to the quarterback position. Florida is looking to move back among the nation’s elite programs, and it has talent across the board. Ole Miss is trying to turn things around after a 4-8 season, and new coach Lane Kiffin has his work cut out for him. The former Florida Atlantic coach has some young players to work with, but it could take some time.

Kickoff is set for Saturday at noon ET at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. William Hill lists the Gators as 13.5-point favorites in the latest Florida vs. Ole Miss odds, while the over-under for total points scored is 57. Before making any Ole Miss vs. Florida picks, check out the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $3,800 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread.

Now, the model has set its sights on Florida vs. Ole Miss. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Ole Miss vs. Florida:

Florida vs. Ole Miss spread: Gators -13.5
Florida vs. Ole Miss over-under: 57
Florida vs. Ole Miss money line: Gators -550, Rebels +425
UF: QB Kyle Trask topped 250 passing yards in five straight games to close the 2019 season.
MISS: QB John Rhys Plumlee rushed for 140 yards or more four times last season.
Why Florida can cover
The Gators are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven conference games, and the Rebels have won just six SEC games over the past three seasons. Florida averaged 33.6 points in its last 10 games last season after Trask took over at quarterback. The senior completed 67 percent of his passes for 2,941 yards and 25 touchdowns and he has a bevy of weapons at his disposal. All-SEC tight end Kyle Pitts is the leading returning receiver, and he is one of the nation’s top tight ends, posting 54 catches for 649 yards and five touchdowns in 2019.

Florida is 8-3 ATS in its last 11 road games, and receivers Trevon Grimes (14.9-yard average on 33 catches), Jacob Copeland (13 on 21) and Kadarius Toney (19.4 on 10) can make huge plays. The UF defense ranked ninth in the nation overall in 2019 and has seven starters back, including linebacker Ventrell Miller, who was second on the team with 55 tackles.

Why Ole Miss can cover
The Rebels are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games as an underdog, and Kiffin went 26-13 in his three seasons at FAU. He should make the offense productive once he settles on a quarterback, and this week he is expected to use Matt Corral and Plumlee, who both started games last season. Corral is the better passer, throwing for 1,362 yards in 2019, while Plumlee led the team in rushing with 1,023 yards, but only completed 52.7 percent of his throws.

Ole Miss is 6-2 ATS in its past eight SEC games, and the quarterbacks have options. Elijah Moore caught a team-high 67 passes in 2019, and Dontario Drummond and Jonathan Mingo have talent but have seen limited opportunities. Sophomore Jerrion Ealy rushed for 722 yards and six touchdowns in his debut season, and freshman Henry Parrish is also expected to get carries in Ole Miss’ offense.

How to make Florida vs. Ole Miss picks
SportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total, with projections showing Florida’s running game stuck in neutral and the Ole Miss quarterbacks combining for less than 200 passing yards. It has also generated an against-the-spread pick that cashes in well over 60 percent of simulations. You can only get the pick at SportsLine.

Kansas State vs Oklahoma

Kansas State vs Oklahoma: The No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners begin Big 12 conference play on Saturday when they host the Kansas State Wildcats at Gaylord Family — Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Okla. The Sooners (1-0) opened their season with a decisive 48-0 victory over Missouri State on Sept. 12. Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler made his highly-anticipated career debut, throwing for 290 yards and four touchdowns. Meanwhile the Wildcats (0-1) were upset by Sun Belt conference member Arkansas State, 35-31, in their season opener. Kansas State gave up the game-winning touchdown with 38 seconds remaining in the game.

Kickoff is set for noon ET. William Hill pegs the Sooners as 28-point favorites in the latest Oklahoma vs. Kansas State odds, while the over-under for total points scored is 60.5. Before making any Kansas State vs. Oklahoma picks, check out the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

Now, the model has set its sights on Oklahoma vs. Kansas State. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Kansas State vs. Oklahoma:

Oklahoma vs. Kansas State spread: Sooners -28
Oklahoma vs. Kansas State Over-Under: 60.5 points
Oklahoma vs. Kansas State money line: Sooners -4000, Wildcats +1500
OU: QB Spencer Rattler leads the country in passing efficiency (303.3)
KSU: WR Chabastin Taylor ranks third in the Big 12 in receiving yards per game (98.0)
Why Oklahoma can cover
Oklahoma annually has one of the top offenses in the country, and this year looks like no exception. The Sooners lead the country in passing offense (484.0 yards per game) and passing efficiency (236.54) despite having a newcomer at quarterback. Oklahoma will face a K-State defense that allowed 330 yards and five touchdowns through the air to Arkansas State.

In addition the Sooners defense, which has been much maligned in recent seasons, got off to a strong start in the season opener. Oklahoma held the Bears to 135 yards and seven first downs and earned its first shutout since 2015. So far this season the defense leads the country in yards allowed, pass-efficiency defense (67.3 rating) and opponent third-down conversion percentage (.000).

Why Kansas State can cover
K-State has an experienced and productive quarterback in Skylar Thompson. The senior from Independence, Mo., is set to make his 29th career start against the Sooners. He is one of just four quarterbacks in school history to throw for 4,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards, but he is the only one to do so prior to entering his senior season. He ranks sixth nationally among active quarterbacks in rushing touchdowns (19) and 15th among active players with 5,706 career total offensive yards.

The Wildcats have one of the top defensive ends in the Big 12 in junior Wyatt Hubert. A first-team All-Big 12 selection last year, Hubert is tied for fourth nationally among active players in sacks per game (0.50) and ranks seventh in tackles for loss per game (0.88).
