Pick via FOX Sports Wagering Expert Chris “The Bear” Fallica

I will admit, I’m a little hesitant here, as Tulane went to Manhattan, Kansas last year and pulled a big upset. 

But the allure of a Troy team with a very good running back in Kimani Vidal, an experienced defense and a head coach in Jon Sumrall who will play up the underdog role, is too much for me to pass up. 

K-State has former conference rival Missouri next up, so maybe there will be just a little peek ahead from the defending Big 12 champs. Not sure the Trojans can go there and win, but I’ll bite on the points. 

PICK: Troy (+16.5) to lose by fewer than 16.5 points (or win outright)
