FOX’s “Big Noon Kickoff” heads to Happy Valley this weekend for a massive Big Ten showdown between Michigan and Penn State.
And you know damn well I’m betting it.
I’ve circled two college football wagers and three NFL bets for the weekend ahead.

Let’s go to work.
All times ET
Michigan Wolverines (-4, O/U 45) @ Penn State Nittany Lions (Noon, FOX and FOX Sports App)

Don’t think for one second MIchigan won’t try and run it up.
PICK: Over 45 points scored by both teams combined

Oklahoma State Cowboys (-2.5, O/U 65.5) @ UCF Knights (3:30 p.m., ESPN)

UCF is still scratching and clawing its way toward a bowl berth and I expect the Knights “A” game in this spot. We’ve seen them hang with Kansas State and Oklahoma and I like…
