Week 5 Predictions
Lady Gaga will the be the halftime entertainment at this week’s game. That is all.
This Week: 6-2
Last Week: 6-2
Overall: 39-9 (81.3%)
Alcorn State at Mississippi State – Dan Mullen and his bulldogs got their signature win last week, as I predicted. Too bad it came against one of the worst Georgia teams in years. Alcorn State might put up more of a battle than Richt’s pups did, but the Maroon dogs will win easily.
Mississippi State 38, Alcorn State 10
Mississippi State 49, Alcorn State 16 – SUCCESS!
Vanderbilt at UConn – What’s a Sweet 16 game doing being played in October? Oh, right, this is football. Not really sure on this one. Vanderbilt beat Ole Miss pretty good, but who hasn’t? UConn was supposed to be decent but got beat pretty good by Michigan.
This one is being played at UConn so I’ll go with the Huskies.
UConn 24, Vanderbilt 17
UConn 40, Vanderbilt 21 – SUCCESS!
Kentucky at Ole Miss – This is another tricky one. Yes, I joked that everybody is beating Ole Miss, but they did put 55 points on Fresno State last week. Kentucky, on the other hand, was supposed to challenge Florida last week, but ended up getting blasted. Basically, both of these teams have looked really bad, but good enough to possibly beat the other. Given that Kentucky doesn’t have a bad loss yet, like to Jacksonville State and Vandy, I’ll go with them.
Kentucky 17, Ole Miss 10
Ole Miss 42, Kentucky 35 – FAILURE
Tennessee at LSU – LSU still hasn’t played a team that anyone would really be scared of, and it continues this week. Tennessee, as we all know, should have lost to UAB. Maybe they are that bad.
Even though LSU’s offense is really bad, their defense will shutout the Vols, so it won’t matter how many points they score.
LSU 20, Tennessee 0
LSU 16, Tennessee 14 – SUCCESS!
Georgia at Colorado – A.J. Green returns for the Bulldogs as they travel to Boulder. Will it matter? Does anyone care?
Georgia 21, Colorado 16
Colorado 29, Georgia 27 – FAILURE
Florida at Alabama – Florida is more of an underdog against Alabama than Arkansas was last week. Then why are the ranked in the top 10? Anyway, as much as everyone wants to bill this as Round 1 of the SEC Championship game, I don’t think it will be that close, or even a good game. I just have that feeling.
Alabama 27, Florida 14 (it hurt to type this)
Alabama 31, Florida 6 – SUCCESS!
Other Games of Note
Texas vs. Oklahoma – Well let’s see, Oklahoma struggled against Utah State, but blew out Florida State. Texas lost bad to UCLA. Is this the most insignificant Red River Shootout in years? I’ll help you out on that one. Yes it is.
Oklahoma will blowout the Longhorns.
Oklahoma 38, Texas 10
Oklahoma 28, Texas 20 – SUCCESS!
Stanford at Oregon – Now we really get to see if Stanford is real. Oregon scores around a point a second, on average obviously, so we’ll see if the Cardinal can keep up. I’m still not completely sold on the Ducks, though. They struggled with Tennessee for a half, who just barely beat UAB in overtime. Not a good point to put on the ol’ resume.
Oregon wins in a shootout.
Oregon 41, Stanford 38
Oregon 52, Stanford 31 – SUCCESS!
Louisiana-Monroe at Auburn – Kind of a low turnout on the predictions this week. In fact, the twit-fam has been dead all week. I guess we’re all recovering from the last few games. For those that did participate, I thank you, and Auburn thanks you. Here is your average score prediction:
Auburn 53, Louisiana-Monroe 12
Auburn 52, Louisiana-Monroe 3 – SUCCESS!
