ESPN computer predicts North Carolina vs. FAMU football winner

After what was almost the first shock of the 2022 college football season, it appears North Carolina and Florida A&M will play their Week 0 season opener.

That, after a scare when FAMU nearly backed out of the game over academic eligibility issues. Players initially voted not to play after that, but after hearing from the school, changed their mind and set out for Chapel Hill.

Crisis averted, but they’ll do so without seven offensive linemen on the field against the Tar Heels.

What do the experts say about the matchup between UNC and the Rattlers? Let’s look at how the ESPN computer predicted the game.

Analysis Cites Prioritizing K-12 Education Funding As Leading Factor

ANNAPOLIS, MD—On Women’s Equality Day, Governor Larry Hogan announced that US News and World Report has named Maryland as the number one state for gender equality. The first-ever analysis of its kind cites K-12 education as a leading factor in achieving the nation’s top ranking.

Questions Remain On Computer Fraud Coverage For Phishing

By Robert Callahan and Melissa D’Alelio (August 26, 2022, 6:00 PM EDT) — Businesses are increasing vulnerable to social engineering schemes, also known as email spoofing or phishing schemes.

Phishing schemes involve fraudulent attempts to obtain sensitive information and/or solicit payments from unsuspecting businesses, often using emails appearing identical to a trustworthy source to trick the victim into affirmatively revealing sensitive information or authorizing payment.

College football odds, picks, predictions for Aug. 27, 2022: Computer simulation fading Illinois in Week 0

The opening week of the 2022 college football season features no ranked teams in action and just one Power-5 matchup. But that hasn’t diminished the anticipation for the Week 0 college football schedule as it is the first gridiron action in over seven months. The week’s slate is headlined by Nebraska vs. Northwestern, in which the Cornhuskers are 11-point favorites in the Week 0 college football odds at Caesars Sportsbook. But the biggest Week 0 college football spread is Utah State being massive 27-point favorites over the UConn Huskies.

UConn has won just four total games since the 2018 season, while Utah State is coming off an 11-win season. But that number is still huge considering the Aggies aren’t a Power-5 team, while the Huskies are independent, but still in FBS. So which side of the line should you lean towards when making Week 0 college football predictions? Before locking
