College Football Predictions Week 5 – 2016

SFpageheader

Les Miles is out at LSU in a surprise move.  At least surprising to be fired this early in the season.  Can Ed Orgeron finish out the season getting LSU to their full potential?

Three huge match-ups this week as Clemson hosts Louisville, Stanford visits Washington and Michigan plays Wisconsin.  These games will create national contenders.

Formulator Forward – College Football Week 5 2016

SFpageheader

by Matt Fischer

Week 4 Review

College Football Week 4 is over and had some interesting storylines especially in the SEC.

LSU Won…No It Didn’t

An odd ending in Auburn as the hometown Tigers edged LSU 18-13 after LSU scored a touchdown on the final game of the game…only to have it overturned on replay.

A penalty was called with 1 second remaining.  LSU then lined up and snapped the ball without a whistle signaling time had run out on the game.  Only after LSU caught the winning touchdown, did replay intervene to overturn the call on the field.  Horrible ending and one that could end up costing a coach his job.

Mizzou Wins in 50 Minutes

I witnessed a disgrace to college football Saturday.  I was in the stands at Faurot Field to watch Mizzou make school  history beating Delaware State 79-0.   Both teams agreed to play 10 minute quarters at half-time.

That’s absolutely ridiculous to cut a game short.  This isn’t the first time it’s happened, but is what’s wrong with college football.  FBS teams scheduling poor FCS teams that don’t even want to play 60 minutes knowing they don’t have a chance to win.  Why even play the rest of the game?

I commented at halftime when it was announced there would only be 10 minute quarters, that the game should be called since Missouri was winning 58-0.

Missouri didn’t even play great.  Delaware State was just that bad.  They were grossly overmatched.

I’ll have more on this in the coming week with a plan for scheduling for Power 5 teams.

Vandy Tops the Hilltoppers

Western Kentucky was over a touchdown favorite against Vanderbilt on Saturday.  Many saw Vandy getting led to the slaughter but they pulled off a big road win for Derek Mason.  Vandy won 31-30 in OT and pulled Derek Mason from the hot seat as a loss on Saturday.  It had to feel good for Mason, a former D-coordinator, to have his defense stop Western Kentucky to win in OT.

Tennessee Finally Beat Florida

It wasn’t looking good for Butch Jones at halftime Saturday.  His Vols trailed the rival Gators 21-3.  It looked like yet another Tennessee loss to Florida.  However, the Vols stormed back to win and once again become the favorites in the SEC East.  You’ve got to think the momentum from this win will last the Vols until they hit Atlanta at least.

Quick Hits from Week 4

-Friday night, Utah and USC played an outstanding football game.  Back and forth with the Utes getting a late drive where they kept going on fourth down to score the winning TD.

-Ole Miss got a big lead and extended it as they destroyed Georgia 45-14.

-Florida State showed they’re a good team by recovering from last week’s blowout to Louisville with a big win over a good South Florida team.

-Wisconsin looked great dominating Michigan State 30-6 on the road.

-Is Brian Kelly on the hot seat now at Notre Dame?  3 losses already this season and his comment that all 22 positions are open isn’t inspiring confidence for the rest of the season.

-Texas A&M’s defense is much improved this year and they’re contenders…nationally.

-UCLA fans have to be frustrated.  Things were looking good against Stanford and then a fourth quarter collapse.

-Look out for Wake Forest.  They snuck up on Indiana in Bloomington today and are 4-0.

-Scott Frost is getting Central Florida turned around already.

-James Franklin isn’t getting it done at Penn State.  His seat is warming up by the week.

Looking Forward to Week 5

College Football Week 5 has big conference match-ups across the country from Miami at Georgia Tech to Stanford at Washington.

We’re getting to the point in the season where we find out who the conference contenders are and this week will definitely help sort several of those out.

I really like these match-ups in week 5.  They will have a major impact on the playoff picture.  Losers this week will have a tough time rebounding to make the College Football Playoff.

Here are my predicted point spreads for week 5:

Stanford at Washington (-3.5) on  Friday Night – This really could be a great game.  The Huskies are the best team nobody’s talking about.  At home on a Friday night is going to have the stadium rocking.

Louisville at Clemson (Pick ‘Em) – The over/under on this game needs to be set at 99.  I’d have trouble going under any other number.  These two teams are loaded with playmakers.

Wisconsin at Michigan (-7) – The Badgers made a statement today with a 30-6 win at Michigan State.

Tennessee at Georgia (Pick ‘Em) – Do the Vols suffer a hangover from the big win over the Gators?  That’s the concern going into this game.  Georgia looks to rebound from being destroyed by Ole Miss.  If not for a national tv loss, I’d think Georgia would be a FG favorite in this game.

Oklahoma (-4) at TCU – The Sooners are in a must win situation.  TCU knows they’ll get the Sooners best shot on Saturday and must be prepared.  This one turns into a shootout.

Top 3 SportsFormulator College Football Player of the Year Candidates:

3 – Christian McCaffrey (RB – Stanford) – Good game at UCLA and more importantly won the game.  As long as the Cardinal remain in the playoff picture, McCaffrey gets big games to showcase his skills.

2 – JT Barrett (QB – Ohio State) – The Buckeyes were off this week so Barrett didn’t have a chance to impress further.

1 – Lamar Jackson (QB – Louisville) – not even halfway through the season, he has multiple seven touchdown games.

Formulator Forward – College Football Week 4 2016

SFpageheader

college-football-week-4-2016

Recap of Week 3

A lot of eye opening results in college football week 3.  We review the games that made a big impact in college football this weekend.

Cardinals Crush

We’ll start with Louisville dominating Florida State.  This game was never close. The Cardinals led 35-10 at half and finished the Seminoles off 63-20.  That’s the most impressive result of the 2016 college football season so far.  Lamar Jackson is now nationally known.

Hawkeyes Downed

Iowa is a defending Big Ten division champ and got beat at home by FCS champ, North Dakota State 23-21.  That this game was close shouldn’t be surprising as the Bison have challenged many FBS teams over the past few seasons but for the Hawkeyes to lose it at home is a surprise.  The Big Ten has to hope the Hawkeyes don’t repeat as division champs or that can greatly hurt the conference’s reputation.

Buckeyes Batter Sooners

Urban Meyer took his Buckeyes to Norman and battered OU.  We predicted the Buckeyes by 14 so we weren’t expecting it to be too close.  Where do the Sooners go from here?  They entered the season hoping to return to the College Football Playoff but those hopes are finished.  Do they stumble the rest of the way or focus on defending their Big 12 Championship?  The Buckeyes are rolling and look like a playoff team.

‘Canes Contenders?

Miami went to Appalachian State and imposed their will.  The ‘Canes looked great cruising to victory.  They look like they can challenge the top tier of the ACC.  After the Tennessee struggle to beat App State, the ACC can use this game when it comes time to compare conference resumes for playoff selection.

Week 4 Games to Watch

Week 4 has some great conference match-ups.  We preview them and give you what we think Vegas will set the line at for the game.  The predicted spread isn’t our prediction for the game, just what the line could open at.

1 – Florida at Tennessee – This is an elimination game in the SEC East.  The winner going Georgia as the favorites to go to Atlanta.  Florida has been impressive so far flying under the radar while Tennessee is looking to impressive many who feel they haven’t lived up to expectations.  The Gators will be without Del Rio at QB and Cameron Sutton is out for the Tennessee defense.

Predicted Point Spread – Tennessee -10

2 – Georgia at Ole Miss – The Rebels blew a double digit lead against Alabama in week 3 and must rebound quickly to host a good Georgia team.  The Bulldogs escaped Mizzou with a 1 point victory and will have to play better next Saturday.

Predicted Point Spread – Ole Miss -4

3 – Wisconsin at Michigan State

Was Wisconsin looking ahead this weekend?  Only beating Georgia State by 6 seems to make you think they were looking ahead to Sparty next Saturday.  Michigan State was impressive winning at Notre Dame on Saturday night.  The winner here joins the race for the Big Ten title.

Predicted Point SpreadMichigan State -6

4 – Stanford at UCLA

These two look to be the two best teams in the Pac-12 early in the year.  Stanford comes off a convincing win over USC while the Bruins won at BYU.

Predicted Point Spread – UCLA -3

5 – Arkansas at Texas A&M

These two have played some great games in the past and this one sets up to be another.  Both enter undefeated and know a win hear boosts them into talk of contending in the SEC West.

Predicted Point Spread – Texas A&M -4

SportsFormulator College Football Play of the Year Candidates

Here are our top 3 candidates for 2016 college football player of the year:

 

3 –  Christian McCaffrey (RB – Stanford) – Still putting up big numbers.  Needs more high profile games to bolster resume.  This weekend at UCLA gives him that opportunity.

2 – J.T. Barret (QB – Ohio State) – Putting up big numbers for the Buckeyes and a huge road win at Oklahoma have him in the race for best player in college football.

1 – Lamar Jackson (QB – Louisville) – He’s been a touchdown machine leading a prolific offense.  Being the signal caller for a team that put 63 up against a top 5 team makes you player of the year after 3 weeks.
