PICK: I’m going to stick with Kennesaw State. The Owls are on a nice 4-1 run right now with a lone loss to San Diego State during that stretch. Kennesaw State has hit 76 or more points in two of their last three games and should post a pretty nice total here as well. As for USC Upstate, they’ve been scoring pretty well lately themselves with 79 or more in three of their last four outings. If both teams are on point, this should be a pretty high-scoring outing but I like the Owls better on a cover.
