College Football Week 6 Picks

With this Saturday being dubbed as Separation Saturday, we will see several high stakes, high profile matchups that we haven’t experienced during the first few weeks. Let the madness begin.

#6 Texas A&M at #12 Mississippi State

(6) Texas A&M

(5-0, 2-0 SEC)

(12) Mississippi St

(4-0, 1-0 SEC)

The SEC West has a lot of great teams. Texas A&M very nearly got upset by Arkansas at home, while MSU was able to upset LSU two weeks earlier. The Bulldogs have the home-field advantage in Starkville, but Kenny Hill is just too hot to handle. Aggies move on and maybe get into that #4 spot with a victory here.

My Pick: Texas A&M

#4 Oklahoma at #25 TCU

(4) Oklahoma

(4-0, 1-0 Big 12)

(25) TCU

(3-0, 0-0 Big 12)

I don’t see TCU winning this game. Oklahoma won’t overlook this opponent and they will continue to be in prime playoff position.

My Pick: Oklahoma

#3 Alabama at #11 Ole Miss

(3) Alabama

(4-0, 1-0 SEC)

(11) Ole Miss

(4-0, 1-0 SEC)

Same with this one. Ole Miss is a great team, but Alabama is just too stacked to lose to them. Also consider how Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace has an SEC high six interceptions on the year, and you know why I’m picking Bama.

My Pick: Alabama

#14 Stanford at #9 Notre Dame

(14) Stanford

(3-1, 1-0 away)×640.jpg

(9) Notre Dame

(4-0, 2-0 home)

As good as Notre Dame has been they haven’t played that tough of competition. Stanford meanwhile has played its fair share of tough opponents and has taken its lumps against USC, UW, and other PAC-12 competition. It’s in South Bend, but Stanford plays tough football and I don’t think Notre Dame is ready for this one.

My Pick: Stanford

#15 LSU at #5 Auburn

(15) LSU

(4-1, 0-1 SEC)

(5) Auburn

(4-0, 1-0 SEC)

This would be different if it was in Death Valley, but Auburn shouldn’t count its chickens before they hatch. Thankfully they have quarterback Nick Marshall to lean on, and that will be enough for them to get past Separation Saturday.

My Pick: Auburn

#19 Nebraska at #10 Michigan State

(19) Nebraska

(5-0, 1-0 Big Ten)

(10) Michigan State

(3-1, 0-0 Big Ten)

Nebraska tailback Ameer Abdullah leads the nation in rushing, but will it be enough against Michigan State and their vaunted defense. I say no dice, especially because it’s at home. State continues to make their case as a Big Ten powerhouse.

My Pick: Michigan State

My Record: 4-5

Stay Classy Everyone!
