Saturday college football comes to the Sunshine State where the FIU Golden Panthers host the Massachusetts Minutemen.

The Massachusetts Minutemen have dropped consecutive contests following a 34-13 loss at Georgia Southern as a 1.5 point road dog. Massachusetts trailed 495-324 in yards and lost the turnover battle 2-1.

Minutemen signal caller Andrew Ford hit 22-33 for 190 yards and a pick and struggled to stretch the field. Andy Isabella led UMass with nine catches for 95 yards while Marquis Young logged 71 yards on the ground on 14 touches.

The Florida International Golden Panthers overcame a 17 point deficit to down Old Dominion 28-20 as a field goal road favorite. Florida International won the yardage battle 489-396 and controlled the clock for 34+ minutes.

Golden Panthers QB James Morgan hit on 17-27 for 251 yards and three touchdown with a pick while Christian Alexander completed 2-4 for 49 yards.

CJ Worton paced FIU with 79 yards on three catches including a 47 yard TD while Austin Maloney snagged a 36 yard scoring strike. The Golden Panthers saw Shawndarrius Phllips run for 94 yards on 16 totes while Napoleon Maxwell carried the ball 16 times for 64 yards.

UMass are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. CUSA and over is 4-0 in UMass last 4 games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous game and over is 6-0 in UMass last 6 games on fieldturf. FIU are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing less than 100 yards rushing in their previous game and FIU are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game and over is 13-3 in FIU last 16 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. 

Nether team looks like a surefire thing in this spot so for now I’ll lay the points while waiting for the total…

Pick:
FIU -4

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
