Week 5 2016: #CFB Picks are graded; results are in!

Week five brought us another excellent week of exciting games and tough games to pick.  This college football season is really on pace to be one of the best ever, with every weekend providing multiple big matchups, and lots of crazy finishes.  Winners amongst our expert panel of predictors and prognosticators were everywhere.  Let’s get right into picks and results.

Winners this week include Lee Corso (9-4), Kirk Herbstreit (12-3), Desmond Howard (10-5), David Pollack (5-1), the entire SEC Nation crew (Tebow and Spears at 5-0, Finebaum at 6-0), Andrea Adelson (8-3), Pat Forde (20-9 Straight up, 1-2 ATS), Joey GAlloway (5-0), Booger McFarland (7-1), Ryen Russillo (3-0 Straight up, 4-0 ATS), Phil Steele (18-7 straight up, 10-12-1 ATS), and SVP (4-1 ATS).  Stanford Steve got things back on track this week at 4-2 straight up; 7-1-1 against the spread.  The Bear also booked a winner at 4-2 straight up; 6-3 ATS.  However, I am proud to say that @GamedayJen blew away the competition for the second straight week going 14-3.  In back to back weeks she has posted a 27-6 record picking the same slate of games as the pros on ESPN, and nobody else was even close over this two week span.  Congratulations Jen!  I heard last week’s muffin basket got lost in transit, so there is a congratulatory cheese platter headed your way.

Losers this week were few and far between but we still had a few.  JA Adande managed to pick all three big games wrong on Around the Horn Friday.  Charles Arbuckle went 6-7 on the Pick Center.  Tim Cowlishaw and Mike Golic both went 1-2 on the big games.  Since we have a limited selection I guess I have to credit this week’s loss to Adande in this week’s box score.

Corso went with Clemson for the headgear pick this week and got another one right, bringing him to 3-2 on the year.  He is off to a much better start than last year at least.  This week’s special guest celebrity Eric Church went 8-2 this week, bringing his lifetime record to 14-7 as a College Gameday celebrity picker.

Everyone else was somewhere in between so check out the full slate of results below to see how your favorite (or most hated) personality did this week.
