College Football Picks Week 5: Locks and Shocks To Take to the Bank

As we head into Saturday, it's time to make sense of the schedule and introduce what will be stone-cold locks and some games that will shock. 

We have a full plate as it were. Saturday presents a Vegas-like buffet of goodies to munch on. From morning to night, there are plenty of games to keep us all fat and giggly until the pros take us away. 

Here we will break down a handful of games that will do one of two things. We may see an upset that will have us all shocked. 

There is no greater sports emotion that utterly stunned, as a favorite heads to the locker room, battered and beaten to a pulp. With our jaws agape, we always remark on how remarkable that game was. 

That feeling will be presented to you this weekend. 

We will also have a great deal of locks. A couple of them come in the marquee games that we have circled with a Sharpie back when the schedules were released. 

There are going to be a lot of seasons ruined in Week 5, and we get to enjoy every last second of it. If you are in the business of having your head and socks blown clean off, then continue to read. 

But I warn you. Like the time you were stuck in the elevator with that annoying guy that ruined the movie you never saw, these prognostications will tarnish the games for you. 

You will go into Saturday and declare that you already knew that would happen. Here is a rundown of a few college football games. 

We are hitting the middle of the season. We are safe in our assumptions of these teams, making us very confident that the ball will roll this way. Now let's watch it roll.
