Temple at Navy—College football free pick is Navy Midshipmen +3.5. Navy looks to respond off a loss to Air Force. They did beat Tulane following a loss in their opener to BYU. Midshipmen have three games under their belt and Temple has none. Owls strength has been their defense but lose seven starters from last year. Conditioning will be an issue for Temple having to defend the Navy triple option for four quarterbacks playing in their opening game of the season. Quarterback Anthony Russo for the Owls completed only 58.7% of his throws last year with 21 touchdowns and 12 picks. Play Navy +3.5.

Florida St at Notre Dame Pick Prediction 10/10/2020
Florida St at Notre Dame—College football pick is Florida St Seminoles +21. Florida St may have found their quarterback with their third try. Sophomore Jordan Travis was effective in leading the team to victory to an FCS school. Still he completed 12 of 17 for 210 yards and a touchdown. He made plays with his feet running for 48 yards and a touchdown. Fighting Irish will be facing their toughest opponent to date posting wins against Duke and South Florida. Florida St has been okay against the run. There is experience on this Seminoles team and Travis can lift his team knowing they have a better chance with this quarterback switch. Remember, Fighting Irish team has been his with COVID outbreak with 25 cases that forced a cancellation against Wake Forest. Too many question marks surrounding the health of the Fighting Irish. Play Florida St +21.
