Saturday, Sept. 14

Air Force at Colorado

1 p.m. ET, TV: Pac-12 Network | Get Tickets
Line: Colorado -3 | Staff Picks

Final: Air Force 30, Colorado 24 (OT)

Recap (Sean O’Toole): The Pac-12 Network can thank Air Force for my monthly subscription to their network. Well, that and a few other MWC cameos but, really, it was all about the Week 3 tilt between the Buffs and Falcons. And while we’re handing out “thank yous”, Colorado can send a few to Air Force for allowing the game to be as close as it was. Don’t get me wrong, I love an overtime thriller, especially when my completely biased rooting interest wins. But this game didn’t need to get to overtime.

It took a lot of help from some sloppy Air Force play, in particular an end of the half ‘gimme’ touchdown-turned-interception as time expired and then full-on penalty-laden implosion in what could have been a 4th-quarter clinching drive. But the 2019  Cadets had this one covered. I hope the fans in Boulder don’t have to wait another 11 presidential terms to get a shot at redemption. This is a game worth playing for these Colorado schools.

New Mexico at Notre Dame

2:30 p.m. ET, TV: NBC | Get Tickets
Line: Notre Dame -35 | Staff Picks

Final: Notre Dame 66, New Mexico 14

Recap (Matthew Kenerly): The Lobos offense got off to an extremely sluggish start on Saturday afternoon, so despite a surprisingly strong defensive effort in the first half, the Fighting Irish eventually found some explosiveness on offense and ran away with things in a blowout win.

Sheriron Jones got his first start of 2019 and completed just 4-of-15 passes for 19 yards with three interceptions. He eventually gave way to Tevaka Tuioti (6-13-132-0-0), who did create some big plays after the game was out of reach and may have restarted the quarterback controversy yet again.

UNLV at Northwestern

3:30 p.m. ET, TV: Big Ten Network | Get Tickets
Line: Northwestern -19.5 | Staff Picks

Final: Northwestern 30, UNLV 14

Recap (Matthew Kenerly): An inspiring first half gave way to a frustrating second half as the Rebels, who trailed just 16-14 at halftime, ended the day with three turnovers in a loss to the Wildcats.

Running back Charles Williams had yet another 100-yard day, finishing with 144 yards on 16 carries, but he was a non-factor in that second half while Armani Rogers (16-26-120-0-1) fumbled twice and threw an interception.

Colorado State at Arkansas

4 p.m. ET, TV: SEC Network | Get Tickets
Line: Arkansas -9.5 | Staff Picks

Final: Arkansas 55, Colorado State 34

Recap (Josh Fredlund): Colorado State kept the game close for 3.5 quarters but the Arkansas Razorbacks pulled away at the end of the game. After Collin Hill went down with a knee injury, it looked like Patrick O’Brien would step in and keep the offense running. The Arkansas defense has other ideas as they kept the Rams in check and won the game for the Razorbacks.

It looked like the game would turn into a shootout when both teams scored within the first four minutes of the game and it did. The Rams just happened to be on the wrong end of the scoreboard at the end of it. Marvin Kinsey has a career day with 20 carries for 180 yards and a score, but the Rams didn’t have enough in the tank at the end of the game
