The Big E College Football Picks: Week 6

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Big E tries to get back on the horse after weeks of struggle.


Right back at it this week, let us not waste time on introductions and get right to this week's picks.

AP rankings used where appropriate.

No. 4 LSU (-2.5) at No. 10 Florida

3:30 PM ET

Pick: Florida

I'm starting to believe in what Coach Boom is doing down there in Gainesville, and more importantly, it looks like they might have figured out their QB position.

Despite their lofty ranking, something doesn't smell right with this LSU team, and you know the Swamp is going to be rocking when the Tigers enter Saturday afternoon.

I'll the the home dog here, setting up a massive game down the road between Georgia and Florida.

Iowa State (+7.5) at No. 15 TCU

3:30 PM ET

Pick: TCU

This line has dropped like a brick at the time of this writing. Since the announcement of TCU QB Casey Paschal's DUI arrest and suspension, this spread was nearly cut in half.

By the time you're reading this it might have lowered even further in Vegas, but we're locking in a +7.5 for the Cyclones. Despite all that, I'm taking the Horned Frogs if for no other reason than out of respect for Patterson's defense.

No. 17 Oklahoma (-5.5) at Texas Tech

3:30 PM ET

Pick: Oklahoma

The Sooners have lost their last 3 games in Lubbock but I don't care. I'm taking Oklahoma because it's time to take risks and climb this leaderboard.

Honestly though, I really do think that Oklahoma is talented and will get their stuff together. Conversely like most of the world I know next to nothing about Texas Tech, so there's that. For some reason I'm feeling a huge blowout win for Oklahoma here.

No. 5 Georgia (PK) at No. 6 South Carolina

7:00 PM ET

Pick: Georgia

Our first pick 'em of the season and it's a top 10 SEC battle!

Georgia lost a key receiver but I love their balance on offense. Not to say that South Carolina doesn't have nice balance too, but UGA is much more explosive.

The pecking order in the SEC East starts this weekend and it's the Gamecocks time to exit the Top 10.

No. 8 West Virginia (+6.5) at No. 11 Texas

7:00 PM ET

Pick: West Virginia

Bet against Geno Smith? Are you loco?

I'll take the points here all day every day.

Miami (+12.5) at No. 9 Notre Dame

7:30 PM ET

Pick: Miami

See, OFD Game Day Countdown: Notre Dame vs. Miami

The line has moved to +14, but we're locked in at +12.5 so adjust your pick accordingly.

No. 21 Nebraska (+3.5) at No. 12 Ohio State

8:00 PM ET

Pick: Nebraska

I still can't get a good handle on this Nebraska team---they do seem improved offensively---but their defense hasn't looked great at times this season.

I've been reppin' Braxton Miller hard this season and I have a hard time seeing Ohio State losing this game at home. However, I imagine this game is going to be very close and I'll take the points.

No. 23 Washington (+24.5) at No. 2 Oregon

10:30 PM ET

Pick: Washington

I was pretty impressed watching the Husky defense against Stanford (yes I know the Cardinal passing game is abysmal) and they tackle really well. Even with their awful offensive line Washington can put up some points with Keith Price.

I know it's Oregon and their offense is out of this world with Black Mamba & Co. I'm just not taking the favorite by a quarter hundred in a game between two ranked teams.
