College Football Week 5 Picks


Well I’m off to a great start this week as both my Thursday night picks won, and Frank Gore got me 19 fantasy points as well.  Now without further ado let’s go to the rest of our big games.

#14 Oklahoma at #22 Notre Dame

(14) Oklahoma

(3-0, 1-0 Big 12)

(22) Notre Dame


Oklahoma is off to a great start and is as usual looking like one of the Big 12 favorites.  Notre Dame on the other hand has failed to recapture the magic that vaulted them to the National Title game last year.  Considering their struggles at home against Michigan State last week, I expect for the Sooners to avenge last season’s 30-13 drubbing in Norman.

My Pick:  #14 Oklahoma

#6 LSU at #9 Georgia

(6) LSU

(4-0, 1-0 SEC)

(9) Georgia

(2-1, 1-0 SEC)

These teams very well could meet in the SEC Championship game if LSU knocks off Alabama.  While both have very good defenses, I think that Aaron Murray is going to take better care of the football than Zach Mettenberger.  Also considering how tough South Carolina’s visit to Georgia was in Week 2, I won’t be picking against the “Dogs” at home.
My Pick:  #9 Georgia
Seriously doesn’t “Dawgs” just sound plain stupid?!
#21 Ole Miss at #1 Alabama

(21) Ole Miss

(3-0, 1-0 SEC)

(1) Alabama

(3-0, 1-0 SEC)

Ole Miss has gotten off to a great start, but going into Alabama’s stadium with the team they have is like going into the den of a grizzly bear with a toothpick.  Sorry folks, I’m in Yellowstone.

My Pick:  #1 Alabama

#23 Wisconsin at #4 Ohio State

(23) Wisconsin

(3-1, 1-0 Big Ten)

(4) Ohio St

(4-0, 3-0 home)

I’d give Wisconsin more of a chance if they hadn’t of messed up the playcalling against Arizona State, but even then going into the “Horseshoe” will always be more than a handful.  Especially since Urban Meyer and his boys are still a little ticked about the sanctions during the 2012 season.

My Pick:  #4 Ohio State

 #5 Stanford at Washington State

(5) Stanford

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

Washington St

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

I’m probably going to be wrong with this pick.

In fact, I’m going to admit that I may be so horribly wrong that this may force me off this website permanently.

However, I have a strong feeling in my stomach that there will be an upset on the Palouse.

Stanford put away Arizona State, but they struggled in the second half against that team, and I don’t think that effort is going to fly against a Washington State crowd that is hungry for a winning football program.

I may be wrong, but then again I may be right.  We’ll see what happens.

My Pick:  Washington State

My Record:  8-11

Call that my upset of the year.

Stay classy everyone!
