As we continue to extol the virtues of playing with rest during the college football season, let's expand our look into GAME SIX. It seems teams taking on a conference opponent fare rather well with a breather as evidenced by an overall 141-119-1 ATS in all games since 1980 when playing off a week of rest.

Bring them in off a SU loss and they improve to 81-57 ATS. We find four teams in that role this week, namely: Duke, Kansas, Marshall and Texas.

A rather nice tightener comes about when we bring the opponent in off a win, as GAME SIX rested teams playing off a SU loss are 45-25 ATS when taking on a foe off a SU win. The Marshall and Texas qualify this week.

The best of all roles occurs when our GAME SIX rested team is off back-to-back losses, including a spread loss in its last game, and facing an opponent off a win as these teams are 17-4 ATS! We find Texas awakening to the task this Saturday.

Don't doze off and fall into a deep sleep this week. Wake up to the fact that there are some ‘devilish' sides on this week's card...
