College Football - Week 5

Bad week (picking) good week on results.

5-4(4-5 ATS) on SEC (30-13 : 9-10) and 11-5(7-8-1 ATS) on the Top 25 (27-8 : 18-14-3)

SEC:

#11 Tennessee at #25 Georgia: UT coming off the big comeback win over Florida (breaking an 11 year losing streak in the process) looks like the team they were supposed to be. Georgia lost big to Ole Miss but has been shaky all year. UT keeps it rolling, 42-21

Alcorn State at #20 Arkansas: The Razorbacks will be looking to fix their run defense, this is a good game to do it. Ark 55 - Alcorn 10

#23 Florida at Vanderbilt: The gators will be looking to rebound in a big way against a team that seems to be trying to just stay alive. This game is usually close, this time it won't be. Florida is pissed. UF 34 - Vandy 3

Louisiana Monroe at Auburn: Big win last week keeps Gus alive. Should be easy this week, it won't be just because Auburn doesn't do easy. AU 30 - ULM 28

#9 Texas A&M at South Carolina: SC lost to Kentucky ... A&M may be looking ahead to UT but it won't matter. They run very well, SC won't stop that run. A&M 40 SC 20

Kentucky at #1 Alabama: heh heh heh Bama 45 - UK 14

Memphis at #16 Ole Miss: Revenge game?  Memphis embarrassed the Rebels last year; no Lynch or Fuentes this year and it's in the Grove. Miss 48 Mem 34

Missouri at LSU: Will the Tigers rally after losing their coach? Can Mizzou keep that offensive juggernaut going? No and no, but it will be enough Fournette to win. LSU 20 Mizz 18


Top 25:

#2   Ohio State hosts Rutgers: Buckeyes run it up 55-14
#3   Louisville at #5 Clemson: Louisville is this year's darling (after putting 60+ on FSU who wouldn't be) and Clemson has 'struggled'. The ACC rights itself this week and Clemson's D asserts itself. Lamar isn't the top contender for the Heisman after this game. Tigers 38 Louis 31
#4   Michigan hosts #8 Wisconsin: Are the Badgers real? Is Michigan? Maybe we'll find out. The maize and blue stop their 40+ point a game streak but the Badgers take over as the B10 favorite. Wisconsin 24 - Mich 22
#6   Houston hosts Uconn: 60-20
#7   Stanford at #10 Washington: The Tree is the class of the Pac-12, Huskies are the up-and-comers. Washington pulls it off; UW 21-20 over Stanford
#12 Florida State at North Carolina: NC needs a signature win; The noles won't give it; FSU 38 - 20 NC
#13 Baylor at Iowa State: Baylor runs away; 40-20
#14 Miami at Georgia Tech: Hurricanes are untested, GT is under performing; Canes 21-20
#15 Nebraska hosts Illinois: Huskers in a walk 31-14
#17 Michigan State at Indiana: Sparty is pissed, Indiana sucks; 42-21 MSU
#18 Utah at California: Utah is skimming by, Cal scores in droves; Utah plays defense, Utes 28-27
#19 San Diego State at South Alabama: USA only wins if the State players stay on the beach, SDSU 43-19
#21 TCU hosts Oklahoma: Sooners were the pick to win the Big 12; they lost to Houston and Ohio State (two highly ranked teams) and people still think they are good; they aren't. TCU 44-22 OK
#22 Texas at Oklahoma State: Texas sucks, Oklahoma State does too. OK upset 28-27
#24 Boise State hosts Utah State: Boise is better than their entire conference combined, however, conference play is weird. Utah State pulls the major upset; 21-20
