NCAAF - Exposing the Top 25
Most Underrated Top 25 Team - Baylor Bears (3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS)
The Bears haven't yet faced a quality opponent, but they sure have beaten up on the opposition so far. Last week they defeated the ULM Warhawks by a score of 70-7. Success on offense is nothing new for Baylor, as the Bears were the highest scoring team in the country last year. Their defense couldn't stop anybody though, including the Warhawks, who came close to pulling off the upset in a 47-42 defeat last September. It looks like this year's team has vastly improved on the defensive side of the ball, and that's going to make them tough to beat.
Most Overrated Top 25 Team - Notre Dame (3-1 SU, 0-3-1 ATS)
Tommy Rees isn't having a lot of success at quarterback for the Irish, and he had a particularly tough game last week. Rees completed 14-of-34 attempts for 141 yards, as the Irish hung on to win 17-13 over Michigan State. The Oklahoma Sooners come to town this weekend, and if they hand the Irish a second loss, expect to see Notre Dame fall out of the rankings.
Unranked team that should be ranked: Missouri (3-0 SU, 2-0-1 ATS)
The Tigers moved to 3-0 with a convincing road win over Indiana, but they have yet to face an SEC team. Missouri will host Arkansas State this week, then the schedule gets a lot tougher in October, with games against Vanderbilt, Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. A win over Arkansas State will likely propel Missouri into the top 25, but it could be short-lived unless they can get an upset over Vanderbilt on the road.

1* GA Tech (1:00 ET): I actually just played Miami on Wednesday as they handled Notre Dame, 79-70, down in Coral Gables. That win now looks more impressive considering what the Fighting Irish just did yday to North Carolina. But there's no reason to stay loyal to a team, particularly when they're about to hit the road. Go against "The U" here.
The opponent Sunday is Georgia Tech and the Yellow Jackets have admittedly had a rough "go of it" in the ACC this season. But they've played a tough schedule and four of the seven conference losses have been by five points or less. None were by double digits. Tuesday saw the Ramblin' Wreck lose here at home to Duke, 80-71, as four-point underdogs. Three-point shooting continues to hurt Georgia Tech, especially against Duke, who went 11 of 23 from behind the arc. Meanwhile, the Yellow Jackets shot just 2 of 19 from distance in the loss.
Regression is likely in store Sunday for Miami as they shot nearly 57 percent overall against Notre Dame. This team has lost three of its past four road games. I've actually been on the right side of their last two games, first going agianst them when they visited Raleigh and lost to North Carolina State, 85-69 as five-point favorites. The 'Canes lone ACC road win came at the expense of last place Boston College and even then they failed to cover. My recommendation here is to take the points. 1* Georgia Tech
