Week 6 College Football Picks: Michigan and 3 Teams That Will Lose
It's Week 6 of the 2011 college football season, which means things are about to get real.
Now is the time where the good teams start separating themselves from the pack, and the bad teams start flaking as expected.
Week 6 features some great games, intense rivalries and BCS implications all over the board.
With that in mind, here are three ranked teams that I see losing this week:
No. 12 Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines are arguably one of the most overrated teams in the nation.
Sure, Denard Robinson and friends put up a ton of yards and points, but every single one of their games has been against far inferior teams, even Notre Dame.
We've seen it for the past few years now. Michigan looks great for the first part of the season, but then the second half comes around and they have to start playing bigger, faster and stronger teams.
Northwestern isn't an incredible team, but they have the home-field advantage and quarterback Dan Persa back under center.
No. 17 Florida

If Florida thought they had a hard time with Alabama, things are going to be even worse against the No. 1 LSU Tigers.
The Gators may not have quarterback John Brantley available, but even if they did, LSU should have no problem with them.
Defensively, LSU can stop any offense no matter how talented they are, and offensively, they are starting to find a rhythm.
Florida has no shot in this game, especially without Brantley.
No. 3 Oklahoma

Call me crazy, but I think the Longhorns have an upset with them. Anything can happen in the Red River Rivalry, and I think this will be one of the better games we have seen in the past few years.
Case McCoy is trying to follow in his older brother's (Colt McCoy) footsteps and lead the Longhorns over the Sooners.
Texas has the home-field advantage, which is going to be huge, and this is really the first test that quarterback Landry Jones and the Oklahoma Sooners will face.
Personally, I don't think they will be ready to play up to the prime-time level that this game will demand.
