The Pick


There are no lines for this game at DraftKings Sportsbook. Obviously, the reigning national champions will romp. Samford is a pretty competitive FCS team — the Bulldogs are inside the latest FCS top 25 and knocked off a ranked Kennesaw State team last week — but this is basically a glorified scrimmage for the Dawgs.
