Pittsburgh Panthers +10 O/U: 57.5

TV: ESPN2, ABC

The UCF Knights and the Pittsburgh Panthers will meet up on the college football gridiron Saturday.

UCF enters this one at a smooth 3-0 this year. The Knights have so far taken out Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic and Stanford.

In the victory over the Cardinal, UCF quarterback Dillon Gabriel had 347 yards with four touchdowns, and Tre Nixon was the top receiver on 88 yards and a TD from five catches. Leading the rush for the Knights was Greg McCrae with 109 yards and a score.

Over on the Pittsburgh side, they’re 1-2 this year. The Panthers opened with a loss to Virginia 30-14, then took out Ohio 20-10 and fell to Penn State 17-10.

In the loss to the Lions, Pitt QB Kenny Pickett posted 372 yards, most of them to Taylor Mack. Mack had 125 yards on a whopping 12 catches there.

The Knights are 4-0 ATS in their last four games in September and 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games. UCF is 5-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS win.

Meanwhile, the Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last four non-conference games and 7-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Pitt is 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 13 overall.

UCF’s early-season success has been quite impressive. They’ve managed to score at least 45 points in every game, and even though you could say they haven’t played anyone of much consequence yet, the results are still just about all you can ask for.

Pittsburgh is a plucky team but I don’t think they’re on the same level as the Knights right now. I’m sticking with UCF here.
