College rivalry weekend a feast for fans

By Steve Makinen  () 

Despite the craziness of this year’s college football schedule, one thing will remain the same in 2020: Thanksgiving weekend will offer a ton of great rivalry games. The big rivalries are an integral part of what makes college football such a huge draw. The traditions and fierce nature of these games make them all the more exciting to watch and bet on. Let’s look at the eight top rivalry renewals on tap for Friday and Saturday from a historical and betting perspective. 

Central Florida at South Florida

Line/Total: UCF by 25 / 66

This series is called the War on I-4 because of the interstate that connects the campuses. It is a budding rivalry in the American Athletic Conference. In the last two meetings, the Knights have taken care of business, winning by 27 and 28 points. Those games came on the heels of a near upset by USF in 2017 that nearly cost UCF its unbeaten season. Neither team has much on the line other than pride this year, as both are mired in the bottom half of the AAC standings. With the Bulls still looking for their first conference win, the visiting Knights are heavy favorites, and the line of -25 would be the largest in the series since UCF (-27.5) survived a scare in 2013, winning 23-20. Since then, favorites have covered five of the six meetings.

Key Series Trends: Road teams, favorites and Under are all 5-2 in the last seven games.
