Predicting Every Single FBS College Football Game: Week Six

There were a few upsets in college football last week, which always seems to happen on weeks where the games look boring on paper. Some of the upsets I predicted and others I didn’t. I was almost right on a couple, but almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades as they say. This led to my worst week yet. My record for week five predictions: 38-16 (70.30% of games predicted correctly). To see my picks for week five, click here. My record for the season: 259-68 (79.20% of games predicted correctly). In week six we’re finally getting into conference play across all of college football, which means the games should get even better and harder to predict. We’re also now starting to see who the bad teams are in college football (don’t ask me about the good teams). Kansas, who just fired Charlie Weis, along with Michigan, who has a lame duck coach in Brady Hoke, are safe to bet against for the rest of the season. Throw in Colorado, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest too. If you’re a bad team and I didn’t mention you, I apologize. You just need to play bad in a more spectacular fashion and I promise I’ll notice you next time. Anyways let’s take a look at a stacked week six slate of games. Look at all of the top 25 match-ups!
