The Pick: Washington +3

The Huskies rank sixth nationally in yards per play (6.8) against FBS opponents, and quarterback Michael Penix should be well motivated as the veteran college football player hasn’t played in a bowl game in his career. It feels like this game could go either way, so let’s go with the squad that’s getting a four-point head start.
