Clemson, though having a storied program under Dabo Swinney, is experiencing challenges, especially in finding consistency from their sophomore QB, Cade Klubnik.

Louisiana Tech vs. Nebraska:
Nebraska has had a shaky start to the season, with uncertainty around the starting QB, Jeff Sims. The team's performance varies significantly depending on Sims' availability.
Louisiana Tech's record suggests they're an average team, having secured wins against less competitive opponents.

Pick: Louisiana Tech +10.5 in the first half at -102.
UCLA vs. Utah:
Utah, ranked No. 11, is undefeated but has shown some signs of weakness, especially in the offensive department. The availability of their star QB, Cameron Rising, will significantly impact the game.
UCLA, ranked No. 22, has impressive stats this season, especially when comparing yards per play. They're expected to provide stiff competition.
Despite Utah's home advantage and coach Kyle Whittingham's impressive home record, the recommendation here is to back UCLA, considering all the factors at play, especially the uncertainty around Rising.
Pick: UCLA +4.5 at -110.
