Week 7 college football betting nuggets to know

Can Therran Coleman help conduct the Pittsburgh Panthers to another victory in Week 7 of the college football season? 

Last week, Tom Herman came through once again, as his Texas squad won outright as a 7.5-point underdog against Oklahoma.

The trends this week point to Pittsburgh and Iowa State both potentially pulling upsets over highly-ranked opponents or, at the very least, keeping it close.

Here are the rest of the betting trends that should help you navigate this weekend’s slate.
