Blake Corum: O/U 97.5 Rushing Yards
A late-season injury kept Corum from kickin’ it in New York as a Heisman finalist in 2022. Still, the rumbling running back managed to dash for over 1,400 yards and 18 scores, finishing seventh in the Heisman voting. With a gentle early schedule, Michigan has eased the West Virginia-bred baller back into the fold, limiting his touches—he’s had just one game with over 20 carries and one topping 100 yards via ground—and keeping him fresh for a campaign that could herald a return to the College Football Playoffs. Although there’s a chance he hits the over, if this game follows the season’s pattern—with the Wolverines winning by at least 24 points each time—he might not get ample opportunities to break loose. Bang the under. Head coach Jim Harbaugh’s revving up the engine, but the Lamborghini’s cruising.
Drake Maye: O/U 297.5 passing yards
North Carolina trounced ACC-rival Syracuse 40-7 at home last weekend, and Maye provided the fireworks, exploding for a season-high 442 passing yards and four total touchdowns — three through the air and one on the ground. This week, the undefeated Tar Heels take on a Miami squad looking to bounce back after Mario Cristobal fumbled away a win vs. Georgia Tech last week. The Hurricane secondary is star-studded and has only given up more than 200 passing yards in two of its five outings — wins over Texas A&M and Temple. But they haven’t faced a quarterback as talented as Maye. Although the Aggies’ offense features a slew of weapons, UNC boasts some big-time players of its own, and the debut of transfer wideout Tez Walker was cash money in UNC’s win over the Orange. That matters, but it won’t on Saturday. Look for the UM defense to show up big in what could end up more of a slugfest.
Brock Bowers: O/U 76.5 Receiving Yards
Barring a miracle, Georgia’s shot at three straight national titles should remain intact against a two-win Vanderbilt team. Last weekend, the Bulldogs blew out a previously undefeated Kentucky team 51-10, and Bowers topped 100 receiving yards for the third week in a row. The junior looks to continue that streak this week vs. the Commodores, who don’t necessarily provide that great of a challenge. The 2022 Mackey Award winner is uncoverable and has been Carson Beck’s best friend on the field in the quarterback’s first year as a starter. Here’s a recipe for Saturday: Beck will probably continue feeding Bowers, and the big man should get himself the big piece of chicken and over the century mark in a massive performance vs. Candy.
Roman Hemby: O/U 0.5 Rushing Touchdowns
Hemby has gone touchdown-less for the last three weeks after kicking off the season with four scores in Maryland’s first three games. He’s due, like rent on the first. It’s time to come home and get back to paydirt. This week, the Maryland offense confronts an Illinois front seven that’s conceded a rushing touchdown in every game but one. This could be precisely what the doctor ordered for Hemby and a Terrapins offense that notched a season-low 17 points in its first loss, a 20-point defeat against Ohio State last Saturday.
Logan Diggs: O/U 94.5 Rushing Yards
LSU’s offense has looked unstoppable at times this season. The same can said about opposing offenses vs. the Tigers’ defense, but we’re not here to dwell on their struggles. Diggs, though? It’s a prime subject and the bell cow for an LSU rushing attack that imposes its will. The Notre Dame transfer rolls into Saturday with at least 100 rushing yards in two straight games, topping the mark thrice this year. A repeat against an Auburn front seven, which has only permitted one 100-yard runner so far, won’t be easy. And guess who it was? A running back from UMass, of all places. Don’t blink if Diggs becomes the second to break the century mark vs. Auburn. Placing eight men in the box against an LSU aerial attack ranking in the top 10 nationally is bad business.
