The start of week 4 is nearly here and there are plenty of Group of 5 games to get excited about. South Florida (3-0) has another prime time game as the Bulls host Temple (2-1). The Bulls are a heavy favorite Thursday night on ESPN. Another weeknight game to watch is Boise State (2-1) hosting Virginia (2-1). The Broncos are nearly a two touchdown favorite over the visiting Cavaliers on ESPN2 on Friday night.
Here is a rundown of the best games this week:
Texas Tech (2-0) at Houston (2-0), noon ESPN2/ABC
This is a great game to start your day of football as the Red Raiders head to Houston. The Cougars are a 6-point favorite.
UCF (1-0) at Maryland (2-0), 3 p.m. ET, FS1
Normally this doesn’t look like a must watch, but Maryland is pretty solid and UCF has a legit shot to upend a Big Ten team at home.
Toledo (3-0) at No. 14 Miami (1-0), 3:30 p.m. ACCNE
The Rockets are of to a great start and could catch the Hurricanes napping a bit after only playing one game thus far. Miami is expected to win by two TDs, but hey, the MAC is tough a nails.
Wake Forest (3-0) at Appalachian State (2-1), 3:30 p.m. ESPN3
Another ACC team comes to Boone, N.C., let’s hope it goes better than last year when Miami came to town. That was an ugly 45-10 loss for the Mountaineers. Wake Forest is solid and is a slight favorite. This should be a really good game.
