-Week 5-

Another potentially boring slate of games, but some times these are the weeks with the most upsets and high pressure finishes.

Arizona State @ Cal

Josh: Cal

Cal has had an impressive start to the season with one of the better defenses that nobody is talking about. They win comfortably.

Ozzie: Arizona State

Sun Devils get a big win on the road to start off Pac-12 play.

Mike: Cal

Texas Tech @ Oklahoma (-27)

Josh: Texas Tech (cover, but lose the game)

Texas Tech is not going to pull off the upset here, but -27 is a crazy spread. Tech always plays OU tough, that will continue. OU scores late to make it look worse than it will actually be. 49-28.

Ozzie: Oklahoma

Tech is struggling bad right now, I think OU offense has a field day. Only chance to cover is if Tech can score in bunches also.

Mike: Texas Tech (cover, but lose the game)

Kansas @ TCU

Josh: TCU

I can’t really figure either one of these teams out. TCU blows out Purdue, then loses to SMU… Kansas loses to a team no one has heard of, then blows out Boston College and plays WVU tough. I’ll take TCU, even though Gary Paterson magic seems to be running low.

Ozzie: TCU

TCU doesn’t lose back to back games at home, opens up Big 12 play with a weird Jayhawk team.

Mike: TCU

Virginia @ Notre Dame

Josh: Virginia

I think Georgia is a bit overrated, so playing them tough isn’t much of a moral victory in my opinion. I think Virginia will be hyped for the opportunity here and shock some people.

Ozzie: Notre Dame

Notre Dame looked surprisingly better than I expected, they bounce back at home and get a win.

Mike: Notre Dame

USC @ Washington

Josh: USC

I feel like I’m constantly wrong about USC… My first thought here was to go against them, so I’m fading myself here and picking USC.

Ozzie: Washington

Losing to Cal was a tough blow for Jacob Eason and the Huskies for CFP hopes, but I believe they bounce back big time with a good victory against USC.

Mike: Washington

Iowa State @ Baylor

Josh: Iowa State

You can’t only beat Rice by 8 then expect my respect. Baylor stinks!

Ozzie: Iowa State

Brock Purdy had a big day last week, I believe in a good battle of who want to be the 4th best QB in Big 12 him and ISU prevails.

Mike: Iowa State

Mississippi State @ Auburn

Josh: Auburn

This could be a sneaky upset game in my opinion. I know Auburn has some good wins, but I still think Bo Nix stinks. Having said that, its at home so I think they win a close one.

Ozzie: Auburn

Kylin Hill may have a tough day getting things going on the ground, Auburn’s front 4 is one of best in country. Battle of Freshman QB’s, give me Bo Nix.

Mike: Auburn

Kansas State @ Oklahoma State

Josh: Oklahoma State

Spencer Sanders showed me some things in Austin. I think the Cowboys take a close game against a scrappy KSU team.

Ozzie: Oklahoma State

Sanders, Hubbard and Wallace all bounce back from a tough loss in Austin. Sanders is dynamic, I believe OSU wins by double digits.

Mike: Oklahoma State

Washington State @ Utah

Josh: Washington State

If I know Mike Leach teams, they’re either going rebound from that disappointing loss to UCLA and score 60 against Utah, or they’re going to fall flat on their faces and throw their season away. I’ll take the former.

Ozzie: Washington State

Dynamic Offense vs Stout Defense. What more could you want for West Coast Pac-12 football? Give me Washington State in a high scoring affair.

Mike: Utah

UCLA @ Arizona

Josh: Arizona

As a Texas Tech fan, I am required to think Arizona is really good for the rest of the season.

Ozzie: Arizona

I mean somebody has to win, right?! I just think Arizona is not as bad as UCLA. Both aren’t very good, Zona just a bit better lol.

Mike: UCLA
