CFB Week 6 Top 25 Preview and Picks

Last week totally freaked out my sensibilities. I had no upsets picked; upsets abounded.

Now, I'm too much of a wuss to actually pick any big upsets, but I'm perfectly unconfident enough to label "Upset Special?" for Bama, Missouri, Texas, Penn State and Texas Tech. (And, of course, I'm off to a great start by having picked South Florida over Pitt. But really: who didn't?)

Bama -- my newly crowned No. 1 team -- is a stretch, as they play at home; the rest all play on the road, against totally inconsistent conference opponents, so contender beware.

Catch you all day tomorrow.

(1) Oklahoma over @Baylor
(2) Alabama over Kentucky -- Upset Special?
(4) Missouri over @Nebraska -- Upset Special?
(5) Texas over @Colorado -- Upset Special?
(6) Penn State over @Purdue -- Upset Special?
(7) Texas Tech over @Kansas State -- Upset Special?

(12) Florida over @Arkansas

USC/Oregon could, just maybe, be a good game. USC has proven they are vulnerable to a good run game, and Oregon is all run right now. It'll probably be a blowout, especially against a highly motivated USC team, but there's some potential there.

Stanford over Notre Dame seems to be a pretty bold pick. Then again, Stanford did beat Oregon State...

Dan has now predicted Notre Dame to lose every game since the opener...and ND is 2-1 so far, so might as well keep it up!!
