Predicting Every Single FBS College Football Game: Week Five

The weirdness continued in week four of the college football season. And I see it continuing for the rest of this season. There aren’t a lot of teams that have established themselves as great and there’s parity every where you look. Once again this affected my picks in a bad way. My record for week four predictions: 45-12 (78.95% of games predicted correctly). My picks for week four can be found by clicking here. My record for the season: 221-52. So far so good. I decided to pick against the Big Ten a lot last week, so naturally five of my twelve wrong picks were picking against the Big Ten. I don’t think anybody picked Indiana to upset Missouri. I didn’t expect Mississippi State to dominate LSU in their upset either, although the Bulldogs tried their best at the end to choke the win away. Michigan lost by 16 points to Utah, which almost made my three touchdown victory prediction come true. So close. I’m sure Michigan will find more ways to disappoint everyone as the season progresses. Onto week five!
