Important: There are two FRIDAY games this week on the picks. Make sure you get your picks in before those games kick off on FRIDAY otherwise your picks for those games will not count. The form records the timestamp of when you submit it, so if you submit it after kickoff of the first Friday game but before the second one, only your score for the first Friday game would be invalidated.

Last week’s results are below, Week 4 picks immediately follow the Week 3 results. You can skip directly to the Week 5 picks form if you’d like.

Week 4 Results

Clemson 34 - Boston College 7

Revan said: Clemson 54-9

I guess being 40 and a man just isn’t enough sometimes.

Georgia 31 - Mississippi State 3

Revan said: Miss State 28-20

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Duke 27 - UNC 17

Week 4 top scorers, and overall standings:

As always, here are the detailed results. Let me know if anything is amiss with the scoring.

Week 5

I’d like to be bold and pick some upsets this week.

#2 Clemson (4-0) @ #12 Virginia Tech (4-0)

Vegas says: Clemson -7

Revan says: Clemson 31-20

If the offense isn’t going 3-and-out, the defense should be able to keep the Hokies in check. If Clemson can establish the run and limit turnovers, we should score 30+. If our line can’t pass protect and we can’t keep our defense off the field, it could be an embarrassing loss. Hint to Scott and Elliott: Tavien and Travis should get 80%+ of snaps and stop calling screens if they aren’t working.

* FRIDAY GAME *

(Pick for this game must be in before kickoff on Friday to count)

#5 USC (4-0) @ #16 Washington State (4-0)

Vegas says: -3.5 USC

Revan says: Washington State 35-28

I swear I always pick Washington State to pull and upset but they never do. BUT THIS TIME FOR SURE.

* FRIDAY GAME *

(Pick for this game must be in before kickoff on Friday to count)

#14 Miami (2-0) @ Duke (4-0)

Vegas says: -6.5 Miami

Revan says: Duke 35-31

Maybe this is a bit too hopeful, but Duke has a shot, right? Miami ain’t played nobody pawwwwl. So, how good are they? We’ll find out. Duke didn’t exactly dominate against a bad UNC team, so perhaps this is a foolish pick.

#24 Mississippi State (3-1) @ #13 Auburn (3-1)

Vegas says: -9.5 Auburn

Revan says: Auburn 20-10

Well shoot, after blowing out LSU and then getting blown out by Georgia, who the heck knows if this Miss State team is any good?

#7 Georgia (4-0) @ Tennessee (3-1)

Vegas says: -7.5 UGA

Revan says: Georgia 31-21

This is tough because I don’t like either team. Georgia losing kinda helps us, but I’d like to see Butch Jones gone too. Is there any way both can lose? Georgia Tech could have beaten Tennessee to make it easier to root for them to beat Georgia here.

Make your picks here! Deadline is 7pm* on Friday!

*or whenever I remember to shut off responses. As always, if you enter picks after a game has started, the pick for that game will not count.
