Randy’s Pick

The Kansas State Wildcats are getting the benefit of the doubt here because they’re at home, and they should have a nasty taste in their mouth after that loss to Missouri. With that said, we’re getting free points with an unbeaten UCF team that won in Boise State and has the top total offense in college football through 3 weeks. UCF has the second best rushing attack in CFB as well. Kansas State’s pass defense is 108th in the country. This should be a fun game under the lights. Give me UCF and the points.
