This article is part of our DraftKings College Football series.
Welcome to this week's main slate breakdown over on DraftKings. It's a 12-gamer featuring a strong mix of SEC, Big 12 and ACC matchups with plenty of intrigue. There's also a wildcard on the board with BYU entering the main slate fray after being relegated to night or showdown slates through its first three games. The Zach Wilson-led Cougars are averaging 49.3 points per game, good for second in the nation, and allowing a mere 8.0 PPG by contrast. That's a dangerous combo of explosive offense and dominant defense, and even though the competition hasn't been great thus far, it's not as though UTSA (+35) is a major threat to get the Cougs off track. Both Wilson and receiver Gunner Romney are the top-billed players at their respective positions, and how they fare along with how the field approaches them will carry massive implications on this slate. Below you'll find our DFS Tools along with matchup info and my positional breakdown of the slate.
