Thursday lines: about to get real

This week's lines come to us courtesy of, as always. Enjoy them at your own risk.
Miami (-4) at Pittsburgh
TCU (-18) at SMU
(Note: I actually picked Baylor to come in and pull of a mild upset — or at least a cover — last week. Um, yeah ... about that.)
N.C. State (+8) at Ga. Tech
(Note: Does anyone even remotely trust the Techs at this point? Anybody?)
Va. Tech (-4) at Boston College
Fla. International (+12) at Maryland
UAB (+14) at Tennessee
(Note: OK, so he probably didn't get in for real, right?

Whatever. UAB deserves SOMETHING resembling good luck at this point.)
UCF (+7) at Kansas St.
Miami (OH) (+20) at Missouri
Air Force (-14) at Wyoming
Wake Forest (+19) at Florida St.
(Note: Wake was one of my other potential upsets a week ago. Thanks a lot, guys. Hey, remember when Jim Grobe was the hot name in everybody's coaching search? Including ours?)
Stanford (-5) at Notre Dame
North Carolina (-1.5) at Rutgers
Temple (+14) at Penn St.
Tulane (+20) at Houston
(Note: No team's season was de-railed quicker than the Cougs' was last week — not only did UCLA pound them, but they lost potential Heisman candidate Case Keenum AND his backup in a matter of minutes. Now they're going with the third-stringer, a freshman. Ouch.)
UCLA (+16) at Texas
Arkansas St. (+11) at Troy
Nevada (-4) at BYU
(Note: An underrated thumping from last week: Nevada's cremation of Cal in Reno. The Wolfpack, suddenly, looks like a legitimate challenge for Boise St. in November. We shall see.)
Oklahoma (-14) at Cincinnati
Kentucky (+14) at Florida
(Note: Most people in Florida have completely skipped this game and moved on to next week.)
Georgia (PICK) at Mississippi St.
Fresno St. (+3) at Mississippi
South Carolina (+3) at Auburn
Oregon St. (+17) at Boise St.
San Jose St. (+31.5) at Utah
West Virginia (+9.5) at LSU
(Note: Opened at 6.5 and has jumped 3 whole points this week. Not sure I get the logic, but OK.)
California (+7) at Arizona
Oregon (-12) at Arizona St.

Back with more later today. Roll Tide.
