Inside the Game - Misleading CFB Scores
Boise St. 28 BYU 27
Boise St. jumped out to a 14-0 lead but needed a blocked field goal as time expired to pull out the win. The game was not as close as the final score indicates as the Broncos outgained the Cougars 571-322 but committed five turnovers which led to 17 points for BYU including a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns in the second quarter.
Miami Ohio 40 Bowling Green 26
Bowling Green outgained the RedHawks 446-433 but lost the turnover battle 4-1 with all four of those turnovers occurring in the second half. The Falcons pulled to within three points late in the third quarter but then committed turnovers on four of their next five possessions including a string of three straight interceptions in a span of 17 plays.
Oklahoma St. 44 Kansas 20
Kansas played a lot better than this score indicates as the Jayhawks were outgained by just 28 total yards but they were hurt by three turnovers that led to 17 points for the Cowboys. Kansas trailed by just four points late in the third quarter but tossed a pair of interceptions and also turned it over on downs twice in the fourth quarter.
North Texas 35 Army 18
Army jumped ahead 7-0 but North Texas took its first lead 14-7 on an interception return for a touchdown, one of seven turnovers for the Black Knights, and never gave the lead back. Army won the yardage battle 396-320 but 178 of those yards were wiped out by the seven miscues. The Mean Green scored 21 points off the turnovers.
Hawaii 34 Air Force 27
This game took double overtime to decide and Hawaii pulled off the upset as it intercepted Air Force on a fourth and seven in the second overtime to sneak out the win. That was one of three turnovers for Air Force as it fumbled twice in its own territory leading to 10 points for the Warriors. The Falcons won the yardage battle 409-387.
Kentucky 40 Mississippi St. 38
Kentucky outgained the Bulldogs 554-362 and had 10 more first downs but needed a last second 51-yard field goal to pull out the win. The Wildcats had a pair of turnovers that led to 14 points for Mississippi St. which included an 81-yard fumble returned for a touchdown. Additionally, Kentucky had to settle for five field goal attempts.
Penn St. 24 Ohio St. 21
The upset of the day took place in State College as Penn St. defeated the Buckeyes and put a big dent in their playoff chances. Ohio St. won the yardage battle 413-319 but had a field goal blocked which the Nittany Lions returned 60 yards for a touchdown. The Buckeyes got the ball back one last time but managed just 12 yards on 10 plays.

7:30 PM ET - New York vs. Cleveland (CLE -9.5 | O/U: 204)
No team in the Eastern Conference added more big names in the offseason than the New York Knicks, but all the newcomers bring long injury histories and big question marks. The Knicks are one of several teams fighting for second place in the East behind the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, who will receive their championship rings in a pregame ceremony before hosting New York in the season opener on Tuesday.
10:00 PM ET - Utah vs. Portland (POR -5.5 | O/U: 193.5)
Damian Lillard has set a lofty goal for the 2016-17 season and will start chasing his public declaration when the Portland Trail Blazers open the season against the visiting Utah Jazz on Tuesday. The star guard vows his intention is to win MVP honors this season, a feat that would require the Trail Blazers to significantly improve on last season's 44-38 record.
10:30 PM ET - San Antonio vs. Golden State (GS -9 | O/U: 211.5)
The Golden State Warriors set an NBA record with 73 wins in the regular season last year but could not finish it off with a second straight NBA championship, prompting the club to add the best free agent on the market over the summer. Kevin Durant will make his regular-season debut with the Warriors when they host the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday.

AAA Sports continues to ANNIHILATE the books with their AMAZING NFL selections, there have been 7 weeks so far and AAA has shown a BIG PROFIT every single week! And they’ve been particularly DOMINANT on NFL Sunday, going 30-12 (71%) w/ ALL of their pro gridiron picks on the weekend (was 4-1 last Sunday!). Join the "Wagering Warriors" in AAA's army!
1* Free Play New Orleans Saints.
REASONING: We’ve used Seattle as a “free play selection” the past two weeks, but this Sunday we’re going to go against the struggling Seahawks’ offense and instead back the much hungrier home side. Seattle’s offense looked atrocious in its 6-6 Sunday Night tie with Arizona last week. The Seahawks run game has stalled and QB Russell Wilson still isn’t back to 100% health with his ankle injury. New Orleans on the other hand comes in ranked among the leaders in every offensive statistical category. At 3-4, the Saints still have a shot at the division title, but at 2-5, the odds would obviously be stacked against them. It’s a brutal part of the scheudle for the Seahawks, who have Buffalo visit next weekend, followed by a trip to New England. Note that Seattle is just 1-4 ATS in its last five against the NFC South, while New Orleans is 11-3 ATS in its last 14 as an underdog, including 3-0 ATS this season. Consider a second look at New Orleans in Week 8.
