Free NCAAF Pick:

Cincinnati Bearcats -3.5

Indiana is riding a five game winning steak in this series, but these teams have not met since 2000. The Hoosiers were a feel good story last season, but QB Michael Penix Jr. has not looked sharp in his return from an ACL tear last November. Take the Bearcats to win and cover on the road. Final Score Prediction, Cincinnati Bearcats win 31-20.
