Week 5 College Football Preview Schedule & Betting Odds

There were several big upsets that took place in Week 4. The biggest shocker was No. 13 Virginia Tech losing 49-35 as a near 4-touchdown favorite at Old Dominion. We also saw No. 14 Mississippi State lose 28-7 at Kentucky, No. 15 Oklahoma State lose at home 41-17 to Texas Tech, No. 17 TCU lose 31-16 at Texas and No. 23 Boston College lose 30-13 at winless Purdue.

Two other ranked teams went down with No. 1 Alabama knocking off No. 22 Texas A&M 45-23 and No. 7 Stanford pulling off a miraculous 38-31 OT win at No. 20 Oregon (Cardinal trailed 24-7 at half). We also saw No. 5 Oklahoma barely escape with a 28-21 overtime win at home against Army (Sooners were 31.5-point favorites).

Week 5 looks to be even better. There’s not a ton of great games early on Saturday, but we do have an early Big 12 showdown with No. 12 West Virginia going to Lubbock to take on No. 25 Texas Tech. There’s also two afternoon games that have my attention and that’s No. 14 Michigan at Northwestern and No. 18 Texas at Kansas State.

As for Saturday night, you are going to want to be somewhere with multiple TVs. There are 12 ranked teams that will kickoff at 6pm EST or later. Four of those pit two Top 25 teams against each other. The two that everyone will taking about are No. 4 Ohio State at No. 9 Penn State and No. 8 Notre Dame hosting No. 7 Stanford. You also have No. 11 Washington hosting No. 20 BYU and No. 19 Oregon visiting No. 24 Cal.
