Maybe I'm crazy, but South Carolina State hasn't had the most impressive season and just layed an egg against Furman last week. Meanwhile, Bethune-Cookman has been playing some solid football as of late and has taken advantage of a weak schedule.
I'm not sure why the Bulldogs are this big of a favorite on the road. I'm taking the Wildcats and the points here.
