No surprises in last week’s top-25 action, and the top 12 teams in this week’s AP Poll remain undefeated at 3-0. Also, ranked Penn State, Washington, Ole Miss and Wake Forest are also 3-0.
The early college football season has also produced some surprises beyond the top-25. A number of teams remain undefeated and some of them were not projected to finish as high in their respective conferences. The ACC has the most undefeated teams including unranked Syracuse, Florida State, North Carolina and Duke. No. 5 Clemson is in action today as one of the three top-25 matchups as the Tigers host undefeated No. 21 Wake Forest. Also, NC State makes it seven undefeated teams in the ACC and the Wolfpack moved up into the top 15 this week.
But follow some other less heralded undefeated teams as they try to stay unbeaten Saturday – Tulane, Kansas, Iowa State, TCU, Indiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Rutgers, Coastal Carolina, Washington State, UCLA and Oregon State, who hosts No. 7 Southern Cal in another key game in the Pac-12 with the line down from -6.5 to -5.5 with money supporting the unranked home underdog.

Two SEC top 25 match-ups headline the key college football games Saturday.
Florida at Tennessee
This line have moved up sharply from -7.5 to -10.5 favoring Tennessee at home in Knoxville. But Florida has dominated the series winning 16 of the last 17 meetings. The Volunteers last beat the Gators in 2016 at home 38-28. Florida is just 4-12 ATS since the start of last season and Tennessee has drawn the most spread betting action at greater than 65% of the money at many major online sportsbooks.
Arkansas vs Texas A&M
This game is being played on a neutral field at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Huge watch and wager action on this Saturday night game with 7 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.
Arkansas leads the nation in sacks and has a top-10 rushing defense allowing just 76.5 yards per game. Yet the Razorbacks pass defense is allowing 350 yards per game to rank near the very bottom of FBS teams. Texas A&M’s offense has been dreadful through three games, but the Aggies defense has been most stingy and will need to slow the Arkansas rushing attack that is averaging 262 rushing yards per game. Bettors are going hog wild on the Razorbacks with nearly 60% of the spread bets on Arkansas and more than 65% of the spread bets favoring the Razorbacks.
Of course, conference season is just beginning for many teams beyond the Southeastern Conference (SEC), so buckle your chinstraps and get in the game with dozens of ways to wager on all the college football action and ‘More Ways to Win’ with FanDuel TV providing betting content and more to enhance your sports betting experience.
