TV college football week 1 ATS picks and predictions.

College football action spans five days beginning on Thursday night. We look at the point spreads for Oregon State's home game against Boise State and Penn State's trip to Purdue.

The point spreads have tightened since these odds rose months ago. With that in mind here are our top ATS choices for this weekend's non- AP Top 25 televised games.

Georgia's biggest SEC East rival is Tennessee, and the Volunteers will begin to play with a victory against Ball State. 

Among 130 FBS colleges, PFF places Ball State's offence 115th and defence 117th.

Without its studs David Bell and George Karlaftis, Purdue defeated Tennessee 48-45 in the Music City Bowl last year.

The Tigers' offence, even though it might take some time to get going, is capable of defeating a weak Louisiana Tech defence by three touchdowns or more.

Brady Cook has taken over at quarterback for the Tigers in place of Connor Bazelak.

Tanner Morgan is thrilled that Kirk Ciarrocca is back as Minnesota's offensive coordinator. Morgan's best season with Ciarrocca was 2019, when he was name second- team All-Big Ten.
