Week Six College Football Picks

Iowa at Minnesota (+1.5)

When an offense is slumping as badly as Iowa’s, missing its only explosive receiver, on a road trip to face a stingy defense like the Gophers’, and is favored? Vegas must know something I don’t . . . but screw them. Iowa’s post-Ferentz misery continues. Minnesota 20, Iowa 14

Texas vs. #20 Oklahoma (-11) (Dallas, TX)

Oklahoma, a two-score neutral site favorite against a wounded Texas team? Nah, nothing could possibly go wrong here. /dons gold cowboy hat Texas 40, Oklahoma 33

LSU at #18 Florida (+3)

Wow, the oddsmakers favoring the Tigers on the road? The Ed Orgeron Bump is real, fam. LSU should honor Les’ memory by running a fake field goal. LSU 27, Florida 21aww, they cancelled it

#25 Virginia Tech at #25 North Carolina (-1.5)

Justin Fuente brings Virginia Tech’s seventh-ranked defense to try to slow Mitch Trubisky’s rollicking pace (76% completion rate, 13 scores, no picks), but the Hokes (no slouch in the passing game either) may not yield enough of them. Virginia Tech 38, North Carolina 37

#9 Tennessee at #8 Texas A&M (-6.5)

Apparently Tennessee is going to be that team that we all know only deserves like half its wins but keeps on finding new ways to steal games. Hopefully A&M got all the Muschamp washed off it. Texas A&M 28, Tennessee 23

#21 Colorado at USC (-4.5)

The oddsmakers don’t seem to care that the Buffaloes are ranked for the first time since 2005, probably because new quarterback Sam Darnold has buoyed the Trojans’ offense. The Buffs are no joke, however, especially on the arm of Sefo Liufau, who has Colorado alone atop the Passing S&P+ rankings. Colorado 30, USC 24

#1 Alabama at #16 Arkansas (+14)

The annual Large Fast Men Bowl. Arkansas’ men are larger but Alabama’s are faster. Alabama 28, Arkansas 10

#23 Florida State at #10 Miami (-3)

If there’s one thing we know for sure about Florida State games, it’s that there’ll be points, and Miami’s been pretty good at grabbing those. The Hurricane offense (ranked no. 1 in explosiveness) is hindered by weather from having the day it otherwise might, but they outlast Florida State. Miami 34, Florida State 29
