College football season baby...Week 6 predictions

For those who know me, you know I am OBSESSED with college football season.  I love it!  I love everything about it...the drama, the upsets, the blowouts, the new playoff, the excitement of it all.  Having been fortunate to attend the University of Oregon and watch Ducks games live while I student (and a few times now as an alumni, including in two weeks time), there is no greater feeling than standing in a loud stadium, screaming until your voice is hoarse and cheering on your favorite team (#GoDucks).

Here are my picks for Week 6...this should be a pivotal week for the upcoming college playoff.  My intent is to provide picks for all games but time is playing against me this week so I will just be doing the Top 25 teams.  Next week I promise to do all the games.  As always, share your thoughts.

(18) BYU (4-0) over Utah State (2-2)
(1) Florida State (4-0, 2-0) over Wake Forest (2-3, 0-1)
(3) Alabama (4-0, 1-0) over (11) Ole Miss (4-0, 1-0) - I REALLY want to see Ole Miss win this game though...jsut sayin...
(4) Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0) over TCU (3-0, 0-0)
(5) Auburn (4-0, 1-0) over (15) LSU (4-1, 0-1)
(12) Mississippi State (4-0, 1-0) over (6) Texas A&M (5-0, 2-0)
(7) Baylor (4-0, 1-0) over Texas (2-2, 1-0)
(8) UCLA (4-0, 1-0) over Utah (3-1, 0-1)
(14) Stanford (3-1) over (9) Notre Dame (4-0)
(10) Michigan State (3-1, 0-0) over (19) Nebraska (5-0, 1-0)
(13) Georgia (3-1, 1-1) over Vanderbilt (1-4, 0-3)
Arizona State (3-1, 1-1) over (16) USC (3-1, 2-0)
(17) Wisconsin (3-1, 0-0) over Northwestern (2-2, 1-0)
Maryland (4-1, 1-0) over (20) Ohio State (3-1, 0-0)
(21) Oklahoma State (3-1, 1-0) over Iowa State (1-3, 0-2)
(22) East Carolina (3-1, 0-0) over SMU (0-4, 0-0)
(23) Kansas State (3-1, 1-0) over Texas Tech (2-2, 0-1)

Now, since I am in Canada and did also attend a Canadian university, I also thought I should include my picks for this weekend's CIS action.  I will actually be in Calgary this weekend for some CWUAA action.  I will proudly be wearing #21, cheering on my cousin Jared Janotta and the University of Regina Rams as they battle the University of Calgary Dino's.  The Dino's have been unstoppable over the past 5 season so this will be an uphill battle but I will still be there cheering him on, hoping for the upset.

St. FX (2-2) over Acadia (1-3)
(8) Mt. Allison (4-0) over St. Marys (0-4)
(5) Montreal (3-1) over Sherbrooke (2-2)
(1) Laval (4-0) over (9) Concordia (4-0)...but I will be hoping for the Stingers upset here. If this game was not at Laval, I would be picking the upset.  Laval has to lose eventually, right?!?!
Laurier (3-1) over York (0-4)
(3) Western (4-0) over (4) McMaster (5-0)...only because of the home field advantage. Again, rather see a McMaster win here.
(6) Guelph (3-1) over Windsor (4-0)
Ottawa (3-2) over Waterloo (0-5)
Carleton (2-2) over Toronto (1-4)
(2) Calgary (3-1) over Regina (1-3)...Again, Go Rams and #21!!!!
(10) Manitoba (2-2) over Alberta (2-2)
(7) Saskatchewan (3-1) over UBC (1-3)

So there you have it, my picks for the upcoming college football weekend, including #CIS and #NCAA

Enjoy your weekend....I'll be losing my voice in Calgary cheering on my cousin :)
