Already it seems like every week a handful of massive undefeated favorites get smacked in the face and knocked from the ranks of the unbeatens. This week the true testers come to those that already have one loss that desire to keep themselves in play for the BCS Title Game.
5. Wisconsin Badgers at Minnesota Golden Gophers
The depth in Week 5 is not too impressive. So we turn to undefeated 'Sconsin at Minnesota for Paul Bunyan's Axe. We're giving the slight edge to Minny and their new outdoor stadium.The Pick: Golden Gophers by 6
4. Auburn Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers
The Kiffikins gets another crack at this whole SEC thing when he gets to host Chizik and the War Eagle. Auburn has a nice win over WVU to be happy about, but I think they take a step back in Volunteer country. The Pick: Vols by 7
3. Louisiana State Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs
The Tigers have moved up the rankings all the way to 4 courtesy of losses from other squads. Now, a week after barely holding off Miss State, the Tigers head across the South to take on the suddenly hot Georgia Bulldogs. The Pick: UGA by 9
2. Southern California Trojans at Caifornia Berkeley Bears
We all know how USC likes to take naps against the basement dwellars of the Pac 10. We also know that Pete always has his team amped up for big games and despite Cal's destruction last week, this is a big game that USC is focused and ready to beat. The Pick: USC by 17.
1.Oklahoma Sooners at Miami Hurricanes
Still no Bradford means that if Bradford wants this season to endd like he had hoped he needs Landry Jones and his stupid mustache to step up big time and handle the resurgent U. Sure last week the U were knocked down a peg, but Oklahoma behind Landry Jones has yet to prove anything other than sputtering in the 2nd half against BYU. My thoughts, no QB = No W. The Pick: The U by 3.
