1. Boise State/Nevada Over 58.5:
An over being this high on the list is very rare, but when you look at the box score, the ranking is justified.
After the third:
That’s 58 points, folks. All they need is ONE POINT.
The 0 point fourth quarter included a 17-play, 8:20 drive by Bosie State that ended on Nevada’s 28. Instead of kicking a field goal, they went for it on fourth down. Just gross.
2. Bucs +3.5:
It was 3rd & 2 with under 2 minutes to go. If the Falcons got 3 yards, they’d run out the clock and Bucs backers would go home happy. That didn’t happen. After a 0-yard run, the Falcons went up 34-29.
To make things worse, the Bucs decided to troll their backers a bit with a creative final play:
HE WAS OPEN!!!
3. Northwestern/Nebraska Under 58:
20-14 going into the 4th. No way it goes over, right? No way!!!!
An 8 play, 99-yard drive? Really? To Northwestern? Only Nebraska….only Nebraska.
4. Rams -7:
As the 3rd quarter winded down, the Rams were up 17 points. How did they not cover? An interception inside their own 20, a missed field goal, and backdoor cover:
5. Vanderbilt +9.5
Halfway through the 2nd quarter, the Vanderbilt Commodores were up 21-3….+9.5 was pretty much locked up. That all changed when Vanderbilt made the dumbest decision they could’ve made: waking up the sideline:
After this almost fight, Vandy was outscored 27-6, including a field goal with 42 seconds left after a 3rd & 1 stop by Vanderbilt. If Florida converted that first down, Florida would have just run out the clock. Final score: 37-27. Florida covers by 0.5 points
6. Michigan/Wisconsin Under 47.5
Score after 3 quarters? 28 points. After Michigan scored to put them up 31-7 with 10 minutes left, you’d think they would just run out the clock with their backups after a stop by their defense.
Christian McCaffrey’s brother scored a 44-yard TD and then Wisconsin scored with 3:50 left to put the total over by 3.5 points.
7. Air Force/San Diego State Under 21.5 1H
This was a brutal beat, but a true bad beat needs to happen with a game long total or spread in a big game. If this happened in Georgia/LSU, it would be higher on the list, but how many people were betting Air Force/SDSU 1H under?! Anyways, here’s how it went over:
You just hate to see that.
