Forecaster Frank's College Six Picks
Michigan 27 Iowa 17
Last week Michigan moved John Gattis from the booth to the sidelined, and the team responded. They slammed Rutgers 52-0. This game should be much harder, but if the Wolverines are to get going, they need a big effort over Iowa.

Florida 30 Auburn 24
Led by Freshman Bo Nix, Auburn had been one of the more impressive teams in the SEC this season. He has already won games in the fourth quarter against Oregon and defeated Texas A&M and Mississippi State. This one, though, is a taller task as they need to win in the swamp. Florida has had a strong defense this season and will get the win.
Texas 41 West Virginia 20
West Virginia has played well but has yet to face a team that is as strong as Texas. The Longhorns' primary battle here is the fight the urge to look ahead to the Red River shootout. Texas should win this one easily.
Ohio State 48 Michigan State 13
Ohio State has had the look of the National Champion, as their offense has been explosive all season, especially at home. Michigan State has played well but is flawed, and that is all the Buckeyes need to take advantage of.
Duke 24 Pittsburgh 20
The ACC has been rather mediocre this year other than Clemson. Both Duke and Pittsburgh have played well, but neither are national powers. Overall the Blue Devils are the stronger team and have the advantage of playing at home.
Oregon 37 California 10
California was playing well before Chase Gabers exited with an injury against Arizona State. That injury caused the Bears to lose their first game at home. Now they have to go into Eugene. Oregon has played well, winning all three games since losing to Auburn in Week 1. Look for the Ducks to win going away.
