The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football Week 5 2020 Predictions

College Football Week 5 2020 Predictions

Predictions!
Publish Date: 10/03/2020
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

Week 4 delivered in many ways in the form of major upsets like Kansas State’s as a huge underdog to Oklahoma or Mississippi State’s shocker of a performance in a win over highly overrated LSU, along with a variety of competitive games. Week 5 focuses on the SEC in a battle of ranked vs. ranked fitting in nicely with several games flying under the radar that should provide a punch.

 

 

Marquee Matchup

 

#2 Alabama vs. #13 Texas A&M: Junior QB Mac Jones and WR Jaylen Waddle kept the tide rolling in Alabama’s season opener and now the pair square off with the Aggies defense. The ranking this year are obviously flawed so A&M’s high ranking is not on par with reality. Texas A&M unconvincingly defeat Vanderbilt last week 17-12 and now face a true test to see where they stand as a program. Turnovers and penalties added up for the Aggies who came in as a 31-point favorite. Aggies QB Kellen Mond and RB Isaiah Spiller will need to be at their best for A&M to have a legit shot at victory on Saturday. It seems like just yesterday when Johnny Manziel and Company rolled the tide over in 2012 but that won’t be the case and hasn’t been since then. The Aggies run game has this podcaster actually calling for a competitive game but Bama’s overall depth wins the day.  

 

The Pick: Alabama 30 Texas A&M 20

 

 

 

Under The Radar 

 

#4 Georgia vs. #7 Auburn: Alabama is the most visible program in the SEC and probably the nation but this matchup is closer on paper and has a whole lot at stake in the final rankings. The Bulldogs got off to a rocky start and had to go to their backup quarterback versus Arkansas. Georgia ended up winning by a wide margin but did that game tell a story on how their offense will perform on Saturday? The Bulldogs did get transfer J.T. Daniels back from injury so he could throw a fork in the road for Auburn’s game plan. The Tigers grinded out a victory over better then acknowledged Kentucky and look to make a statement with a big win.  Surprisingly, neither team ran the ball with much success so that will be a key heading into this marquee matchup along with QB play and turnovers. 

 

The Pick: Auburn 23 Georgia 20

 

 

 

Saturday Upset Special

 

Air Force pulls the upset over Navy as a 7-point underdog. 

 

 

Hardcore Barnburners

 

Kansas State vs. Texas Tech: Both teams coming off great performances especially the Wildcats, which makes for a great clash of styles for this Big-12 matchup. The winner will be ranked. 

 

#25 Memphis vs. SMU: The Tigers were a 3-point favorite when the lines opened but heading into this AAC shootout the betting lines have it dead even. The over/under is set at 74.5 so that tells you all you need to know from an entertainment standpoint. 

 

 

Against The Spread

 

Are we sure #20 LSU can beat Vanderbilt by 21 points? 

 

Also, I like Auburn to at least lose by less than 7.5 points to Georgia if not win outright.  

 

 

Take it to the Window

 

#18 Oklahoma will cover as a 6.5-point favorite over Iowa State. 

 

 

Quick Hits Recap 

 

-Kansas State was a 28-point underdog, missing 8 key contributors, and still managed to pull off an upset giving the Wildcats their 1st ever road win over a Top 3 AP-Poll Team.  

 

-Texas Tech scored the most points in school history in their overtime loss to Texas, the series dates back to 1928. 

 

-Mississippi St. QB KJ Costello threw for a record 623 passing yards and 5 TD’s in a stunning victory over LSU.

 

-Florida QB/WR Kyle Trask and Kyle Pitts put on a show in a 51-35 win over Ole Miss to the tune of 416 passing yards, 6 TD’s and 8 catches for 170 yards and 4 TD’s.

 

-The Big-12 conference is off to a lackluster start to say the least losing 3 times to the Sun Belt, one of the teams that loss, (Kansas State) beat the mighty Oklahoma. 

 

-The 19th ranked Rajun Cajuns kicker Nate Snyder nailed a 53-yard field goal at the buzzer to defeat Georgia Southern 20-18. Snyder had missed 3 out 4 attempts prior to saving the day.
