A look back at Week 5 of the college football season.
1. I was high on UCLA entering the season, picking them to go to the playoff. I seriously reconsidered after seeing their first two games of the year. But Thursday night was a statement win. Perhaps I was too early to write them off. The next two weeks will tell with Utah and Oregon ahead. Mr. Hundley is going to need to play like he did Thursday for the Bruins. He is capable of it, so the Rose Bowl should be excited if it is unbeaten Oregon versus unbeaten UCLA.
2. Florida State struggled against NC State and giving up 41 to the Wolfpack does not seem like a good thing, but I am not off the Seminoles making the playoff. … Read More »

Rutgers at Louisville – This is the first game of the back to back gauntlet that will define the Cardinals season. This week Rutgers, next week UCF. These are the toughest games on the Cards schedule. And they are 19 point favorites. Nice schedule if you can get it.
Oregon at Washington – The Huskies are coming off a close loss to Stanford. Oregon is Oregon. I am a believer in the Huskies and this game is at home so that helps. But they are not in the Ducks class yet. But they are heading up, so I do not expect the Ducks to be up by 50 at the half as is the norm. But the Huskies do not have the horses to win this game.
