College Football Picks, Week 6
#5 Boise State @ Fresno State: How do the Broncos get themselves up for games like this? Some bigger programs have got to take pity on the football-viewing public and play Boise State so they can get an actual game in before their bowl game.
#3 Oklahoma @ #11 Texas: Nothing says Texas like college football and fried peanut butter and jelly, which rumor has it is on the menu at the Texas State Fair this weekend. Call it a hunch, but I see an upset on the menu here as well. Hook ‘em, Horns.
Maryland @ #13 Georgia Tech: It’s been an up and down year for Maryland (beating Miami, getting walloped by Temple) and a very up year for Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets will remain unbeaten.
Connecticut @ #16 West Virginia: Poor Connecticut. Bad year for UConn and the Connecticut Whale is getting stuck with Sean Avery. West Virginia, easily.
Kentucky @ #18 South Carolina: The Gamecocks are having QB issues, but I still don’t see Kentucky beating them.
#23 Florida State @ Wake Forest: Seminoles by at least 2 TDs.
#19 Illinois @ Indiana: Illinois will remain unbeaten.
Boston College @ #8 Clemson: Clemson and Sammy Watkins will run roughshod over BC.
#17 Florida @ # 1 LSU: Very few defenses can keep up with Florida’s offense. LSU’s is one of them. Add in the Gators’ using their backup QB and I fully expect them to be, as the LSU faithful would say, tiger bait.
Kansas @ #6 Oklahoma State: In the shadow of Oklahoma, the Cowboys are quietly putting together a nice season. They’ll beat the Jayhawks.
Missouri @ #20 Kansas State: K-State in a reasonably close game.
Miami @ #21 Virginia Tech: Still don’t know what a Hokie is, but they should overpower the Hurricanes.
#22 Arizona State @ Utah: Nick Foles and the Wildcats should beat a decent Utah team.
Vanderbilt @ #2 Alabama: Even as a fan of another SEC team, I can’t help but pull for Vanderbilt. Today it’s a distinct exercise in futility. Tide by a considerable margin.
#15 Auburn @ #10 Arkansas: Interesting matchup. I think Auburn is a bit overrated at #15, and I think Arkansas is maybe a little underrated at #10. Hogs will take it.
#12 Michigan @ Northwestern: Can Michigan keep their momentum rolling through conference play? The last three years say no, I say yes.
#24 Texas A&M @ Texas Tech: Aggies take it.
Iowa State @ #25 Baylor: RGIII and Baylor will get back on track with a big game today.
Colorado @ #7 Stanford: Stanford will, yet again, find a way to win.
Ohio State @ #14 Nebraska: Ohio State is going to be missing players to suspension for yet another game, but it won’t matter- Nebraska will win, and would have anyway.
