Smart Box Series: 7 Come 11
By Marc Lawrence
Game 11 of the college football season signals many things.
For teams with six or more wins its one step closer to a probable bowl bid.
Teams languishing below .500 are likely to be home for the holidays.
So it is too for Game 11 non-winners that ended the previous season with 7 or more wins who are playing today off two losses-exact.
Our best advice for these teams is to bend over and kiss it goodbye, as these losers have a better chance of learning Florida election results first rather than enhancing their bowl chances.
That’s because these 7-plus game winners last year who enter Game 11 this year off two losses-exact with a .500 or less record are 17-37-1 ATS since 1980.
Air Force and Houston will assume the role this week. And for what it’s worth, home teams (the Falcons) are 8-22 ATS, while underdogs (the Cougars) are just 3-22 SU and 4-20-1 ATS.
While 7 and 11 are winning numbers in the first roll at a craps table, together they are losers on the college gridiron.
Houston, you’ve got a problem…

This is a Free #NCAAB play on the #USC Trojans.
The Arizona Wildcats will be a significant road favorite at USC tonight, and I really don't think this is an easy game for Arizona. The Trojans are 9-1 at home, and the one loss came by a single point to California. Their only other two losses this season came on the road at Utah and Oregon. These two teams are very familiar with each other, and the home team has won outright in six of the last seven meetings. The Wildcats have been the favorite in each of the last eight meetings, but USC has won two of their last three home games versus Arizona. Last January these two teams played an epic 103-101 game that required four overtime periods to decide a winner. I wouldn't be surprised if we see something similar this time around.
