Week 5 of the college football season will have plenty of big games.
Florida against Alabama. Nebraska against Wisconsin. Clemson against Virginia Tech.
Those three games right there feature six unbeaten teams.
Then there's Kansas State against Baylor and Iowa State hosting Texas—all unbeaten teams.
That means we're going to have five new teams with a mark in the loss column, but all games should be great watches and could have some surprises as well.
Nebraska faces their first Big Ten challenge, Florida will look to knock off Alabama, and Clemson and Virginia Tech could be a preview of the ACC Championship Game.
So who's going to win and who's going to lose?
Although Iowa State is playing host to the Texas Longhorns, they still just don't have enough to win this contest. They played great against Iowa and UConn, and those were big wins for the Cyclones, but Texas is a more talented team than both Iowa and UConn.
Texas, led by Case McCoy, has a roster full of talent including true freshman running back Malcolm Brown.
Both teams are coming off of a bye week, which will help both teams out. Iowa State does have some nice pieces with which to work, starting with quarterback Steele Jantz.
Iowa State has had a good start to the season, and they may even end up being bowl-eligible at the end of the year, but they will not be undefeated after this game, and Texas should win easily.
Kansas State is coming off a huge win over the Miami Hurricanes in Coral Gables. They won 28-24 to keep their unbeaten season alive.
Now the Wildcats will play host to the red-hot Baylor Bears, led by Heisman candidate Robert Griffin III.
Collin Klein has played very well for Kansas State, leading the team in passing and rushing, but Baylor is going to provide plenty of problems for the Wildcats.
For starters, nobody has been able to stop Griffin III this season, and Kansas State isn't going to be the first. Baylor has plenty of playmakers at wide receiver, and their defense is improving every week.
It's a great start to the season for Kansas State, but they will not move to 4-0 and will lose to Baylor next week.
Virginia Tech is a very good team.
Logan Thomas has filled in nicely for Tyrod Taylor, and he's still progressing, but Virginia Tech hasn't played up to its potential yet this year. They blew out Appalachian State in the first game of the season and followed that up with three close wins over unranked and non-conference teams.
Now the Hokies will be facing a hungry team in Clemson who's coming off two huge victories over Auburn and Florida State. The Clemson offense made the Florida State defense look like a junior high squad, and the combination of Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins is one of the best in the country.
Both teams are coming in undefeated, and Clemson is full of momentum. Virginia Tech always plays very good at home, but this is a different Clemson team. The Tigers will be up to the task and will leave Blacksburg with a victory, keeping their undefeated season alive.
Florida has a daunting task of taking down mighty Alabama in Week 5.
Alabama is rolling now. They seem to have found their stride, and Trent Richardson is finally playing consistent football and lighting up the scoreboard. A.J. McCarron is starting to play very good for the Tide, and the defense looks like an NFL squad.
Now, Florida has plenty of talent and speed on the roster. Jeff Demps and Chris Rainey have had great seasons so far, and John Brantley isn't playing near as bad as he did last season.
One of the advantages Florida has in this game is that Alabama has to come into The Swamp, but like they proved against Arkansas, the Tide can shut down anyone, anywhere.
Alabama has a National Championship team, and now they will have to prove it again against a hungry Florida team looking to write off their 2010 season.
This game will be close and will have plenty of breathtaking moments, but Alabama will prevail and beat Florida in Gainesville.
What better way to welcome Nebraska to the Big Ten than a trip to Wisconsin against the red-hot Badgers, led by Russell Wilson. Wisconsin is playing lights out and is demoralizing the teams they are facing with its powerful offense and stout defense.
This will be the first real test for both teams. Nebraska and Wisconsin are both great teams, but Wisconsin appears to be the better of the two.
It's hard to imagine the Huskers being able to contain this offense with Wilson plus running backs Montee Ball and James White.
Nebraska has struggled defensively this season, giving up a lot of points to Washington, Fresno State and even Wyoming. What are they going to do against Wisconsin in their own backyard?
The Badgers wins easily and show why they are the class of the Big Ten.
