Rice Stadium in Houston, Texas is the site for a clash between the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and host Rice Owls. Wake Forest is 1-0 after narrowly defeating Utah State in their home opener by a score of 38-35. Rice is off to 0-1 start compliments of a 14-7 road loss to the Army Black Knights.
The Demon Deacons return 12 starters from a 7-6 team and Wake Forest enter Friday night a winner of five of their last six road games and is 12-3 in non-conference games since 2016. Junior quarterback Jamie Newman Jr threw for 401 yards and three touchdowns and senior running back Cade Carney rushed for 105 yards to lead the Demon Deacons over Utah State.
The Owls return 12 starters from a 2-11 team and suffered a 14-7 road loss to the Army Black Knights. Freshman quarterback Wiley Green threw for 62 yards and senior running back Nahshon Ellerbe rushed for 103 yards and a touchdown and senior running back Aston Walter rambled for 72 yards to lead the Owls in their loss to Army.
Vegas opened this game at 17.5 points, and you can get 19 points in most shops in and around Las Vegas. Wake Forest slid by Utah State and allowed 596 total yards to a pretty good Utah State offense. Rice has a pair of nice running backs and they should be able to control the clock and keep the Demon Deacons and the Newman aerial show from taking full flight. I fully expect Wake Forest to win this game, but 19 points are too many to lay for a Wake Forest defense allowing 180 rushing yards to Utah State last week.

Boise State hosts Marshall in their second meeting between the two schools. Boise State enters Friday night with a 1-0 record after sneaking out of Tallahassee with a 36-31 victory over a much-improved Florida State Seminoles tackle football team. Marshall is also 1-0 after their home opening beatdown over VMI by a score of 56-17.
Freshman quarterback Hank Bachmeier started his college career with a bang throwing for 407 yards and a touchdown and junior running back Robert Mahome scampered for 142 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Broncos to a thrilling 36-31 come from behind victory over the Seminoles. Senior kicker Eric Sachse was the real hero, converting all five of his field-goal opportunities with the longest being a 41-yard boot.
the defending Conference-USA Champion and gave VMI a serious beating in their
home opener. Sophomore quarterback Isaiah Green threw for 238 yards and four
touchdowns with just one interception and sophomore running back Brendan Knox rushed for 43 yards and two
touchdowns in a rout that saw six Thundering Herd players score touchdowns.
is 24-8 against current C-USA teams and has won 17 consecutive home openers.
Marshall is 3-17 over their last 20 road openers and is defending Champion of
the C-USA East.
Marshall has a traditionally stout defense and this season is no exception, but Boise State is the much better team on both sides of the ball. VMI isn’t a very good football team yet was able to throw for 201 yards against the Thundering Herd. Marshall does return six starters to their defense, but I think Bachmeier and the Broncos will be too much for the Thundering Herd to deal with on the Blue Turf at Albertsons Stadium. Cash with the Flash Best Bets suggest laying the 12 points and playing Boise State to cover the 12 points against Marshall on Friday night.
