Pick 6 is back for another action packed week of unpredictable College Football action!
Every College Football fan in the land was sure that Washington would beat Stanford last week, right? We all were convinced Florida didn’t have what it takes to beat Auburn. Although Iowa and Michigan was always going to be tight, 100% of your College Chaps team predicted Iowa to win.
Well, we were all wrong! However, we try again to achieve Pick 6 perfection.
If you’re new to Pick 6, presumably you’ve only just discovered the internet? We’ll forgive you!
Each week the trio of College Chaps select 6 games from the College Football schedule and attempt to predict the winner. The results are tallied up throughout the season to crown an overall champion. We’re joined each week by a guest who accounts for a guest scoreline for the season. In addition they have their own guest leaderboard.
Last week we were joined by Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger. In what was a week packed full of surprises, Ross managed to outscore us all but couldn’t topple Dane Brugler and Nat Coombs from the top of the pile.
Predictions Table After Week 6:
- Guest – 25
- Alex Chinery – 25
- Oliver Hodgkinson – 23
- George Somerville – 22
Guest Leaderboard After Week 6:
- Dane Brugler – 5
- Nat Coombs – 5
- Brian Baldinger – 4
- NFL Draft Diamonds – 4
- Trevor Sikemma – 4
- Ross Dellenger – 3
For this week’s Pick 6 we’re joined by Cam Mellor of Pro Football Focus. Cam is the Senior College Football Analyst for the College Football arm of PFF. You can find his work, alongside all of PFF’s analytical tools, right here. Cam is no stranger to predictions having held an 18-0 record on nflpickwatch.com and is hoping to repeat that sort of performance this week.
So, to this week’s Pick 6 games!
Oklahoma @ Texas – Saturday 12th October 17:00
Alex Chinery: Texas
Hook ’em Horns! OU sucks! Did you really expect anything less from a Texas fan at Red River? This could be a wild shootout and Tom Herman loves being the underdog…
George Somerville: Oklahoma
This is the biggie, and will tear the happy home that is @collegechaps apart! Jalen Hurts is THE man and will drive the Sooners to what will turn out to be a convincing victory against the Longhorns. #GoSooners
Oliver Hodgkinson: Oklahoma
The greatest rivalry in College Football. I so very badly want to believe that Texas can win this game. However, with the 5th worst passing defense in the nation it’s going to be nigh on impossible to halt the Hurts for Heisman campaign.
Cam Mellor: Oklahoma
Hurts does enough with his arm downfield and his legs when necessary in a Heisman-worthy moment. Sooners win, but don’t cover.
Alabama @ Texas A & M – Saturday 12th October 20:30
Alex Chinery: Alabama
Alabama is just too strong for A&M. A&M would need to play a perfect game and I just don’t trust quarterback Kellen Mond to do so.
George Somerville: Alabama
The TAMU hype flittered away as quickly as it came. The Bama express is rolling through the College Station this weekend, only stopping for a win. Choo choo, all aboard!
Oliver Hodgkinson: Alabama
Which Alabama receiver will excel this week?! It really is an embarrassment of riches for Tua Tagovailoa. Texas A & M played Clemson closer than I imagined earlier in the year, I don’t expect the same to happen on Saturday night.
Cam Mellor: Alabama
Madubuike creates pressure but Tua’s resolve and pocket presence is too much. Crimson Tide big.
Michigan State @ Wisconsin – Saturday 12th October 20:30
Alex Chinery: Wisconsin
Jonathon Taylor continues his Heisman tour by running straight over Michigan State. Wisconsin continues to establish itself as the Big 10’s number two squad.
George Somerville: Wisconsin
Wisconsin with the W. Jonathan Taylor will wreck havoc. Dont @ me….
Oliver Hodgkinson: Wisconsin
Michigan State gave up 172 yards to Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins last week. Now they face the leading running back Heisman contender in Jonathan Taylor. Wisconsin have been really impressive this year, and continue that on Saturday night.
Cam Mellor: Wisconsin
Jonathan Taylor-Touchdown (JTT) with yet another big game and his 11th straight 100-yard performance. Badgers defense smothers Lewerke & Co. Wisconsin in a defensive slugfest.
Penn State @ Iowa – Sunday 13th October 00:30
Alex Chinery: Penn State
Penn State have been rolling as of late. Iowa have been wildly inconsistent. If you can’t beat Michigan this season, you don’t have a hope of beating Penn State.
George Somerville: Penn State
Iowa were shocked by Michigan (I was shocked Michigan beat anyone) last weekend which will dent their confidence going into this game. Iowa are normally a lock at home, but wait! The Lions are unbeaten and on a roll. I reckon the Lions take this in a close encounter.
Oliver Hodgkinson: Penn State
Iowa let me down last week in a close one with Michigan. So much of their success rests with Nate Stanley, and the once top talent has been really inconsistent. Many wondered how the Nittany Lions would cope without Trace McSorley. Sean Clifford, and his relationship with KJ Hamler, has fans wondering no more.
Cam Mellor: Penn State
KJ Hamler is too much for the Iowa slot defenders and forces enough YAC on the LBs in coverage in a true mismatch.
Florida @ LSU – Sunday 13th October 01:00
Alex Chinery: LSU
This LSU team is stacked with talent, whilst we may see a slowdown in Joe Burrows performance because of Florida’s stacked secondary. LSU still has the overall edge in talent. Give me the Tigers here.
George Somerville: LSU
Ignoring the Red River Showdown and USC @ Notre Dame, this is likely to be the best game of the week. Florida coming off a huge win against Auburn last weekend will be on fire. But don’t bet against the Tigers in the Bayou. LSU to remain unbeaten. #Geaux Tigers
Oliver Hodgkinson: LSU
Florida were one of the big surprises of Week 6 when they knocked off Auburn. They don’t repeat in Week 7. LSU are the real deal. Joe Burrow is balling out, and their secondary could easily be the best in the nation.
Cam Mellor: LSU
Joe Burrow finds his receivers downfield, outside the numbers on too many occasions that the Florida DBs can’t contain them all game. Trask isn’t experienced enough to win in the Bayou. Valiant effort but this one isn’t close.
Washington @ Arizona – Sunday 13th October 04:00
Alex Chinery: Washington
Washington has been up and down all year. Last week was the lowest down moment losing to Stanford. Expect them to bounce back with a W this week.
George Somerville: Arizona
Is Kevin Sumljn turning the Wildcats around? Well results so far suggest the tanker is turning. Washington have been an unpredictable mess at times this year. I’m going do the Wildcats at home.
Oliver Hodgkinson: Washington
This game is the last one to kick off, and the hardest one to predict. Both teams have seen their struggles in 2019. Washington should emerge victorious on the back of a stronger defense. The Wildcats are giving up an average 30 points and over 500 yards a game. That’s just not good enough to stop Eason and co.
Cam Mellor: Washington
Huskies defense smothers Tate in the passing game but Khalil gets some serious yards on the ground. A defensive score gives Washington the edge near the end and they run away with it.
