This prompted a third-party tweet from the Oregon Ducks. Apparently a duck can pull a truck. Does this mean that Oregon is rooting for Tennessee?
Have you ever seen a Duck pull a truck?

The Vols responded with a Kermit the Frog meme.
What does this all mean? Nothing, really. Tennessee is nearly a touchdown favorite at home but over 80% of the money is coming in on Florida to cover. Can a duck pull a truck? We will find out Saturday.
South Florida vs. No. 13 Florida State (10,766 bets)
The Noles are coming off one of the worst losses in program history. Florida State got drilled by Louisville 63-20 last Saturday. The Seminoles will face another mobile quarterback this week. Quinton Flowers has thrown for 716 yards and seven touchdowns (added two more scores on the ground) as South Florida has averaged nearly 50 points per game during its 3-0 start.
Under Jimbo Fisher, FSU is 10-3 coming off a loss and 13-1 against in-state teams. South Florida is looking to go to start 4-0 for the first time since 2011. If the Bulls win it would be the highest ranked team they have beaten since 2008.
The public believes in the Noles, over 80% of the bets and money are on Florida State to cover.
There is a Pro System pick for this game, get access here with a 6 Day trial.
Marshall vs. No. 3 Louisville (9,029 bets)
Is this a trap game? A showdown with Clemson looms large next week for Louisville but it is hard to imagine the Cardinals being upset. Marshall gave up 524 yards of total offense and 65 points to Akron last week.
Louisville is a big favorite but with Lamar Jackson, Heisman favorite, leading the way the public is on the Cards to cover (over 75% of bets).
