College Football Picks Week 5!

Well you win some and you lose some, and a lot of match ups in college football last week changed the overall landscape.  Who would have thought that Kansas State would have gotten that big victory over Oklahoma and that Notre Dame would be a top 10 team right now.  Change is abundant as the season goes on, and pretty soon we’ll find out if those schools (and others such as Oregon State and Stanford) can keep the gravy train rolling.  Let’s look at next week.

Stanford versus Washington

(8) Stanford

(3-0, 1-0 Pac-12)

Washington

(2-1, 2-0 home)

This looks like a good game…NOT!  Stepfan Taylor runs all over UW’s defense.

My Pick:  Stanford

Sorry Huskies you’re not there yet. 

Baylor versus West Virginia

(25) Baylor

(3-0, 1-0 away)

(9) West Virginia

(3-0, 3-0 home)
 
It looks like this one’s going to be a shootout.  Geno Smith has strongly asserted himself into the Heisman conversation, but Baylor’s Nick Florence has done an excellent job of making big plays on offense and bringing back memories of RGIII.  However, working against Baylor, that game against Louisiana-Monroe shouldn’t have been as close as it was.  Sorry Bears fans, West Virginia’s offense is too good for you to get the upset.
 
My Pick:  West Virginia
 
Ohio State versus Michigan State
 

(14) Ohio St

(4-0, 0-0 away)

(20) Michigan St

(3-1, 2-1 home)

 
This game is big for Big 10 play.  Michigan State has made a strong recovery from the shellacking by Notre Dame by posting a shellacking of their own against Eastern Michigan.  Here’s some things working against Ohio State.  The game is at Michigan State and they have a strong back named Le’Veon Bell.  Braxton Miller is a great quarterback, don’t get me wrong, but I personally don’t think he has enough big game experience to pull off a win in hostile territory like this.
 
My Pick:  Michigan State
 
Wisconsin versus Nebraska
 

Wisconsin

(3-1, 0-1 away)

(22) Nebraska

(3-1, 3-0 home)

This probably has to be the underrated game of the week.  Wisconsin is trying to get a big win after a humiliating loss to Oregon State, while Nebraska is looking for a win after a loss a few weeks ago to UCLA.  Taylor Martinez is average at best when it comes to being a quarterback in big games, but Wisconsin’s quarterback play has been more than questionable.  Also with Montee Ball potentially being out, I have questions about this team.

My Pick:  Nebraska

My record:  10-7

  1. I think you are underestimating Louisiana-Monroe. They knocked of Arkansas, nearly beat Auburn and Baylor. They took those huge body game paychecks and pretty much turned it into a pretty successfully football program.
