🏈 Four Top-25 Matchups This Weekend
Some of college football's best players will be be put to the test on Saturday, with top-tier battles going down all across the country. USC vs. Notre Dame, Penix vs. Nix, and much more. I'm pretty sure my parlay is an absolute lock, who is riding with me? 🍿 (3 min read)
You know it’s a loaded Saturday of college football when two of the sport’s most storied programs are facing off in one of the country’s oldest stadiums…and it isn’t even the best game of the day 😎
Did we mention that those teams also boast two of the nation’s best QBs? Caleb Williams and the Trojans taking on Sam Hartman and the Irish is definitely must-watch TV, regardless of the weather…
Current forecast for South Bend on Saturday night and the Notre Dame vs USC game:
Rainy throughout the entire day

…but then again, there’s almost too much action. All said, there’s four Top-25 battles going down on Saturday, including a Top-8 showdown I told you to mark on your calendars weeks ago. Take a look for yourself 👇
On the topic of stud QBs facing off against each other, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more electric arms race than the one about to go down out in Washington. We already gave you an introduction to both the Huskies’ Michael Penix Jr. and the Ducks’ Bo Nix, but since then it’s been more of the same for the two Heisman contenders 💪

Penix (+200) and Nix (+600) have a prime opportunity to make their award case on the big stage, and you can expect your weekly share of drool-worthy highlights from Caleb Williams (+225) as well. But I promise, not every elite college quarterback plays in the PAC-12…one happens to be turning Chapel Hill into a football town 😎
Sophomore Drake Maye may not have as much Heisman buzz (+1800) as his west coast counterparts, but he sure is getting attention from NFL scouts…especially after a dominant performance this past weekend 💪
Drake Maye had an insane game vs. Syracuse: 440 yards, 3 TDs and no INTs.
If the #Bears end up in the top-2, they’ll either get a stud QB prospect or the chance to trade down for a MASSIVE haul. He’s not Trubisky — he’s an entirely different beast.

Maye and the undefeated Tar Heels will face their toughest test of the season so far when Miami comes to town, and to say the Hurricanes are looking for redemption would be an understatement. Simply put, their loss on Saturday was absolutely inexcusable 😬
One of the wildest things you'll EVER see.
Miami could've taken a knee and won the game, instead they ran a play, lost a fumble and then Georgia Tech marched to score a game-winning TD. Unreal. 🤯

That’s gotta be a borderline fireable offense, and it cost us the chance to watch a battle of unbeatens this weekend. But this matchup still has massive implications for a surging UNC team that’s starting to creep into the CFP conversation 👀
Last but not certainly not least, don’t sleep on an under-the-radar meeting between a pair of dark horses in the PAC-12. UCLA is fresh off an impressive win over #13 Washington State, and remember DJ Uiagalelei from Clemson? Safe to say the new OSU threads are serving him well 😤

In case you forgot, last Saturday’s action was absolutely electric, and if a loaded slate of ranked matchups this time around is any indication, it looks like we’re due for one heck of an encore 🍿
Trivia Question: What is the oldest active D1 football stadium?
For My Parlay Gurus
Michael Penix Jr. is the Heisman favorite, Caleb Williams is a lock to hear his name called first in the NFL Draft, and smart money is on Drake Maye going immediately after. That’s the kind of QB talent I can get behind — I’m taking all three to win this week. Check out this parlay 👇
Washington ML vs. Oregon: -142
USC ML vs. Notre Dame: +118
UNC ML vs. Miami: -192
$100 on this bet would win you $465 — if we hit, make sure you email [email protected] for a chance to win up to $100*. Many will enter, only some will win 😉
