2014 College Football Predictions: Week 5

(AP)
Hey, who doesn't love a suspended player showing up in full pads anyway? College football is weird, and great. Here are my picks for the fifth week of the 2014 collegiate football season.

Announcers

Thursday, September 25th
Texas Tech vs. 24 Oklahoma State - ESPN, 7:30
Expect plenty of offensive yardage but you gotta go with the Pokes in Stillwater.
Pick: Oklahoma State

Appalachian State vs. Georgia Southern - ESPNU, 7:30
Pick: Georgia Southern

11 UCLA vs. 15 Arizona State - Fox Sports 1, 10:00
Of these two teams, I do think the Bruins are more talented. That said, Brett Hundley may be an injury question mark and UCLA has not looked that impressive thus far. I like ASU in Tempe.
Pick: Arizona State

Friday, September 26th
Middle Tennessee vs. Old Dominion - Fox Sports 1, 8:00
Pick: Old Dominion

Fresno State vs. New Mexico - ESPN2, 8:00
Pick: Fresno State

Saturday, September 27th
Vanderbilt vs. Kentucky - SEC Network, 12:00
Pick: Kentucky

UTEP vs. 25 Kansas State - Fox Sports Networks, 12:00
Pick: Kansas State

Northwestern vs. Penn State - BTN, 12:00
Pick: Penn State

Iowa vs. Purdue - BTN, 12:00
Pick: Iowa

TCU vs. SMU - CBS Sports Network, 12:00
Who wouldn't love to cook with the Iron Skillet?
Pick: TCU

Tennessee vs. 12 Georgia - ESPN, 12:00
Pick: Georgia

USF vs. 19 Wisconsin - ESPNU, 12:00
Pick: Wisconsin

Tulane vs. Rutgers - ESPNEWS, 12:00
Pick: Rutgers

Wyoming vs. Michigan State - ESPN2, 12:00
Pick: Michigan State

Colorado State vs. Boston College - Fox Sports South, 12:30
Pick: Boston College

Western Michigan vs. Virginia Tech - ACC Network, 12:30
Pick: Virginia Tech

Army vs. Yale - Fox College Sports, 1:00
Pick: Army

Akron vs. Pittsburgh - ESPN3, 1:30
Pick: Pittsburgh

Maryland vs. Indiana - BTN, 1:30
After that stunning road win at Missouri, maybe the Hoosiers are not that bad after all.
Pick: Indiana

Eastern Illinois vs. Ohio - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Ohio

Bowling Green vs. Massachusetts - ESPN3, 3:00
Pick: Bowling Green

Wake Forest vs. Louisville - ESPNU, 3:30
Pick: Louisville

FIU vs. UAB - American Sports Network, 3:30
Pick: UAB

Florida State vs. NC State - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
Quarterback controversy in Tallahassee? Nope, but hey.
Pick: Florida State

Minnesota vs. Michigan - ABC/ESPN2, 3:30
The Wolverines are a mess but even then, they should still beat Minnesota this week at home? Yes?
Pick: Michigan

Miami (OH) vs. Buffalo - ESPN3, 3:30
Pick: Buffalo

Kent State vs. Virginia - ESPN3, 3:30
Pick: Virginia

Western Kentucky vs. Navy - CBS Sports Network, 3:30
Pick: Navy

Arkansas vs. Texas A&M (Arlington) - CBS, 3:30
Pick: Texas A&M

Texas vs. Kansas - Fox Sports 1, 4:00
Pick: Texas

16 Stanford vs. Washington - Fox, 4:00
I'm feeling some upset city Saturday in Seattle. Washington has shown they can run the ball well and their defense is solid enough to pull it off at home.
Pick: Washington

Colorado vs. California - Pac-12 Networks, 4:00
Pick: California

Louisiana Tech vs. Auburn - SEC Network, 4:00
Pick: Auburn

Temple vs. Connecticut - ESPNEWS, 4:00
Pick: Temple

UTSA vs. FAU - KMYS-TV, 5:00
Pick: UTSA

South Alabama vs. Idaho - Altitude, 5:00
Pick: South Alabama

Cincinnati vs. 22 Ohio State - BTN, 6:00
The Buckeyes better not sleep on their intrastate counterparts. Cincinnati can score and will make it interesting.
Pick: Ohio State

Rice vs. Southern Miss - Fox College Sports, 7:00
Pick: Rice

Boise State vs. Air Force - CBS Sports Network, 7:00
Pick: Boise State

Central Michigan vs. Toledo - Buckeye Cable Sports Network, 7:00
Pick: Toledo

Troy vs. Louisiana-Monroe, ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: Louisiana-Monroe

Duke vs. Miami (FL) - ESPN2, 7:00
I'm feeling the Dukies here. They have shown pop on both sides of the ball and Miami hasn't looked all that special thus far.
Pick: Duke

North Carolina vs. Clemson - ESPNU, 7:00
Pick: Clemson

Missouri vs. 13 South Carolina - ESPN, 7:00
Mizzou suffered what I like to call a "kidney stone loss" and if you watched that game against Indiana, you would know why. They are better than that, but not enough to beat a hot USC team in the other Columbia.
Pick: South Carolina

Memphis vs. 10 Ole Miss - SportSouth, 7:30
Pick: Ole Miss

New Mexico State vs. 17 LSU - SEC Network, 7:30
Pick: LSU

Baylor vs. Iowa State - Fox, 8:00
Maybe a trap game before Texas next week (even though Texas has been a disappointment)? It's not crazy, even though the Cyclones are not good.
Pick: Baylor

Washington State vs. Utah - Pac-12 Networks, 8:00
Wazzu needs a win but this is a sneaky Utah ballclub.
Pick: Utah

8 Notre Dame vs. Syracuse (East Rutherford) - ABC, 8:00
Pick: Notre Dame

UNLV vs. San Diego State - ESPN3, 8:00
Pick: San Diego State

Texas State vs. Tulsa - ESPNEWS, 8:00
Pick: Texas State

Illinois vs. 21 Nebraska - BTN, 9:00
Pick: Nebraska

Oregon State vs. 18 USC - ESPN, 10:30
The Beavers will put up some points but USC is physical enough to slow them down to the point of getting a nice conference win.
Pick: USC

Nevada vs. San Jose State - CBS Sports Network, 10:30
Pick: San Jose State
