BOZICH: U of L, UK, IU, WKU Looking At 3-1 Weekend

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Time for a final look at today's college football games involving the local schools. It appears they should have more fun than Eddie Vedder at a Bruce Springsteen concert (something that happened Friday night in Chicago).

The forecast is nearly a basketball forecast -- 3-1, which is as good as you could imagine considering where Western Kentucky is playing. 

Here goes:

Missouri State at Louisville: No line from Vegas. Phil Steele like the Cardinals by 31.

No projection from I say Louisville 42, Missouri State 3. Didn't get a pick from Eric Crawford. But I ask you this:

How many former Missouri State players are in the NFL this season?

You only need one hand to guess.

Kent State at Kentucky: In Vegas, Kentucky is favored by 6. Phil Steele likes the Wildcats by 4. Kentucky is given a 62.8 percent win probability by the game-simulating computers. I say UK, 27-21. Eric likes UK, 35-24.

Who is your favorite former Kent State football player -- Antonio Gates or Jack Lambert?

Indiana at UMass: Vegas likes Indiana by 14. Phil Steele likes the Hoosiers by 14. The win probability for IU is a surprising 82.4 percent. I don't believe the Hoosiers have won on the road since visiting Western Kentucky on Sept. 18, 2010. I took IU, 24-14. Eric says IU, 28-24.

Unless Victory Cruz, a former UMass star, walks through that door -- and he has the weekend off.

Western Kentucky at Alabama: Vegas says Bama by 40. Phil Steele likes the Crimson Tide by 32. AccuScore's win probability for Alabama has increased from 99.2 percent to 99.6. I say Bama, 49-7. Eric says, 52-7.

Maybe the Hilltoppers beat an SEC program, but it won't be this SEC program.

The time to disagree – or agree – is before the game.
