New, 61 comments
Pickembajafresh_medium

Can you believe we're only at Week 5 of the college football season? The way the Broncos have been rising, it feels like Thanksgiving. 

Join me after the jump for this week's list of games. We hand out a weekly prize of free Baja Fresh, so jump in even if this is your first week. Check out the rules if terms like "spread" confuse you.

Note: Early deadline this week due to the BYU vs Utah State game Friday night.

This Week's Games

A lot of interesting games this week. We have a slew of WAC vs. MWC games. Hopefully the WAC can earn itself some credibility against the media's darling conference. Also, some interesting games involving teams surrounding Boise State in the rankings. 

Leave your picks in the comments. Deadline is 7 p.m. MT Friday.

  • #3 Alabama (-16) at Kentucky
  • #4 LSU at #18 Georgia (-3)
  • #8 Oklahoma (-7) at #17 Miami
  • #7 USC (-4.5) at #24 California
  • Utah State at #20 BYU (-24)
  • UNLV at Nevada (-4.5)
  • New Mexico State at San Diego State (-17)
  • Colorado State (-3) at Idaho
  • UC Davis at #5 Boise State (-42.5)*
  • Tiebreaker: Total points in Boise State vs UC Davis game

Nick's Picks

  • Alabama - They've looked good. I expect them to continue to roll.
  • Georgia -  This has got to be the week LSU goes down.
  • Miami - No word on Bradford. Hopefully Miami can bounce back.
  • USC - Cal looked really bad last week. 
  • Utah State - I've just got a feeling. Could be the Mexican I ate last night.
  • Nevada - They've got to win sometime, right?
  • New Mexico State - That's a lot of points for a 1-3 SDSU team.
  • Idaho - The first week I pick them, I'm sure they'll screw me.
  • Boise State - Hopefully there isn't a slow start like last week.
* Apparently Vegas doesn't do lines for games involving FCS teams, so I made this one up.

Last Week: 2-6
Overall: 13-22


Leaderboard

After four weeks, TheShrewdOne moves over to #1 after JasonHaberman's week. Also, Mountngrown and Belexes are solid at #2 and #3 despite neither winning a week. Great job.
