My AP 25 picks: Week 5

Posted on: September 26, 2008 5:49 pm
Okay, I've been a bit busy and couldn't get them up sooner, but here they are.  The USC pick is late, but I would've definitely picked USC.

#1 USC @ Oregon St                             USC
  Wow, I couldn't have been more wrong.  Congrats to the Beavers and their fans!

#2 Oklahoma vs #24 TCU                    Oklahoma
  This will be a good test for Oklahoma, but I see them handling it pretty well and moving on with ease.

#3 Georgia vs #8 Alabama                   Alabama
  I'll admit it's a homer pick, but if Alabama can control the line like they did against Clemson they can win this game.  If Mount Cody can get to Stafford with regularity it will help the secondary keep up with AJ Green.

#4 Florida vs Ole Miss                           Florida
  Ole Miss puts in a scare but Florida pulls away in the second half.

#5 LSU vs Miss St                                  LSU
   At least it's a fairly short ride back to Starkville.  Not much to look forward to for the Bulldogs this season.

#6 Missouri -- OFF    n/a
  Somehow Chase Daniels still gets 300+ yards of passing this week.

#7 Texas vs Arkansas    Texas
  This may be uglier than the LSU/Miss St game.

#9 Wisconsin @ Michigan    Wisconsin
   Wisconsin gets one in the Big House, much as I hate to see that.  They will lose a game this year, maybe two, but not this one.

#10 Texas Tech -- OFF    n/a
#11 BYU -- OFF    n/a
#12 Penn St vs #22 Illinois    Penn St
#13 S Florida @ NC State    S Florida
#14 Ohio St vs Minnesota    Ohio St
#15 Auburn vs Tennessee    Auburn
#16 Wake Forest vs Navy    Wake Forest
#17 Utah vs Weber St    Utah
#18 Kansas -- OFF    n/a
#19 Boise St -- OFF    n/a
#20 Clemson vs Maryland    Clemson
#21 Vanderbilt -- OFF    n/a
#23 E Carolina vs Houston    E Carolina
#25 Fresno St @ UCLA    Fresno St

Okay, I sucked it up big time last week, and the last minute change to Troy was, well, dumb.  I'm 68-14 on the season after the USC loss last night.

My AP 25 picks: Week 5

I agree 100% with these rankings.  Theres not going to be many upsets this weekend (USC was a Thursday night game).  I'm not an Alabama or Georgia fan, but watching a few Georgia games this season, I doubt they'll finish the season in the top 10, let alone the top 5.  They face LSU, Florida, and Georgia Tech down the line, and several other teams looking for the upset.  Sorry Georgia fans, but its not your year.

My AP 25 picks: Week 5

You could pick Troy again against OSU this week who sits at #26 in the AP Poll.  I hope that pick is wrong again because I am going to the game and it wouldn't be fun to ride home from Stillwater with 3 upset Pokes fans.
