Forecaster Frank's College Six Picks
Ohio State 27 Penn State 23
Last season Penn State handed Ohio State their only loss in the regular season, winning in Happy Valley to prevent the Buckeyes from winning the Big Ten Conference. Despite Penn State winning the conference title, Ohio State still went to the playoffs while the Nittany Lions stewed. Now the Lions come in ranked #2 and have a chance to cement their playoff credentials while burying the Buckeyes. However, in Columbus, Ohio State is hard to beat. Look for a big day for J.T, Barrett in a head-to-head Heisman showdown with Saquon Barkley.

Georgia 37 Florida 10
The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party won't be much of a celebration for Florida, who has limped along this year at 3-3. The #3 ranked Bulldogs have dominated weaker opponents in the SEC all season and should be able to handle the Gators relatively easily. Florida has dealt with one problem after another starting with several players getting suspended at the start of the season. Look for Georgia to win this won going away as they continue to make their case for the CFB Playoffs.
TCU 31 Iowa State 20
Don't look now, but Iowa State is 5-2 and in the Top 25 for the first time since 2005. The Cyclones have won road games against Oklahoma and Texas Tech and now face their biggest test, 7-0 TCU at Ames. Expect the crowd to be fired up, as Iowa State has chance to make a major dent in the Big XII with a win. However, Kenny Hill has been down this road before in 2017 and has come up big every time, look for the #4 ranked Horned Frogs to continue to make their case for the CFB Playoffs by bursting Iowa State's bubble.
Notre Dame 30 NC State 24
After their big win over USC, Notre Dame is now in the Top 10 and looking like a legitimate playoff contender. However, the Irish must have their guard up as they play solid NC State team in South Bend. The Wolfpack come into the game with a record of 6-1, and have been one of the most impressive teams in the ACC. Look for this one to be tight throughout, but in the end the Irish with their running attack led by Josh Allen will get the win.
Clemson 27 Georgia Tech 10
Clemson takes the field for the first time in two weeks, after losing on the road at Syracuse. Dropping from #2 to #7, the Tigers must quickly get back on track if they hope to get back to the CFB Playoffs to defend their National Championship. Up until their loss at the Carrier Dome, Clemson has been shutting down anyone and everyone. Look for that trend to get back on track as their top-notch defense will have no problem shutting down the Georgia Tech option attack.
Washington State 27 Arizona 17
Last week Washington State bounced back from their first loss of the season by blanking Colorado at home. This week the Cougars face another tough test on the road, against young and talented Arizona team that has played well at 5-2. The Wildcats did what the Cougars could not and that's take apart the California defense as they beat the 45-44 in overtime last week. Experience will be the deciding factor in this game, as Luke Falk leads Wazzu to a nice road win.
