College football Week 6 picks: Iowa primed to upset Michigan
Week 6 of the college football season features plenty of compelling matchups, but which teams are poised for upsets? Here are this weekend’s picks and predictions:
Central Florida at Cincinnati: Central Florida 31-27
Central Florida gets a road win to show it is still the “Group of Five” favorite to earn a New Year’s Six bowl berth.
Iowa at Michigan: Iowa 24-20
The Hawkeyes know who they are, and the Wolverines are still figuring it out.
Auburn at Florida: Auburn 21-16
The Tigers have already won at Texas A&M. This is a tougher test, but they’ll pass.
Virginia Tech at Miami: Miami 28-18
This game once again fails to be the marquee event the ACC needs it to be.
UCLA could bring in a second consecutive recruiting class in football that doesn’t crack the top 35 nationally. The Bruins’ on-field issues are only part of the problem.
Air Force at Navy: Navy 21-20
On a Saturday with few great games, keep an eye on this battle between service academies.
Baylor at Kansas State: Kansas State 24-17
Baylor takes its first loss of the season in a rowdy environment in Manhattan, Kan.
Northwestern at Nebraska: Nebraska 29-24
The Cornhuskers recover quickly from the Ohio State blowout loss.
Arizona at Colorado: Colorado 34-21
The Buffaloes are coming off a big win at Arizona State. They’ll take care of Arizona, too.
California at Oregon: Oregon 31-13
The Ducks will take full advantage of the injury to Cal quarterback Chase Garbers.
Oregon State at UCLA: Oregon State 34-31
Two desperate teams will play in front of nobody at the Rose Bowl. The Beavers have the offense.
Last week: 8-2. Season: 34-16.
