Predicting All Top 25 Week 5 College Football Games Against the Spread

Sadly, there are no matches quite this big in Week 5.

We are now averaging about 47.2 upsets per week, and conference play begins in earnest this week.

That means there should be even more upsets this week. There is even a game with an unranked team favored over a ranked team.

Keep an eye out for upsets and surprising displays of defense in Week 5, as that is quickly becoming the theme of the 2012 college football season.

Oregon State has been playing like a legitimate bowl contender. The Big Ten has been campaigning to join the Big East. The SEC is playing so inconsistently that Auburn looked like a top-10 team last Saturday.

So, after a daunting quest through the Seven Seas of Stats, here are my picks for Week 5.

*Towson at No. 3 LSU has no line as of Sept. 25, 2012. (Kickoff: Saturday, Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.)

*The following Top 25 teams are taking a bye in Week 5: Kansas State, Notre Dame, Florida, USC, Oklahoma, Mississippi State and Rutgers

*All betting numbers are from sportsbook.ag

*Statistics not from memory are from ESPN.com
