Prognostication Bukakke NCAA Week 5

Rough week last week. For the first time in two years, Iggins! now holds a lead in the prognostication bukakke. This cannot last.

Iggins!: 34-18
Code Red: 32-20
Mrs. Code Red: 29-23

This week's picks:

Northwestern (2-1) @ Illinois (4-0)

Code Red: Even with the return of Dan Persa, Northwestern doesn't appear to be as talented as Illinois, and Illinois is at home. The Illini win.

Iggins!: It looks like Illinois got the Zook out of their system last week, so Illinois wins here.

Mrs. Code Red: Illinois. Native state, homes.

Arkansas (3-1) @ Texas A&M (2-1)

Iggins!: That was a pretty epic meltdown by A&M last weekend. They'll get an early welcome into the SEC here. Arkansas wins.

Code Red: Sigh. I was hoping you'd pick A&M. Arkansas.

Mrs. Code Red: Texas A&M. Not sure why. I just kind of like the Aggies.

Auburn (3-1) @ South Carolina (4-0)

Code Red: This is exactly the kind of game Spurrier would find a way to lose, but I'll stick with the logical odds. South Carolina wins.

Iggins!: South Carolina has been trying to lose all season, but they just can't! So until they do I'll say South Carolina wins.

Mrs. Code Red: I'll go with Cam Newton. He was at Auburn last year, and now he's in the Carolina region, so South Carolina wins.

Michigan State (3-1) @ Ohio State (3-1)

Iggins!: Here stand two very underwhelming Big Ten teams. I feel like MSU should be better, so I'll take Michigan State to win.

Code Red: OSU sucks. MSU wins.

Mrs. Code Red: The Ohio State University.

Baylor (3-0) @ Kansas State (3-0)

Code Red: I don't think anyone has noticed that both of these teams might be kinda good. I'll roll with Robert Griffin III and Baylor. Baylor Wins.

Iggins!: That was a nice win against Da U last week for K State, but Jacory Harris ain't no Robert Griffin. Baylor wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Kansas State because I hate Baylor, since I had a professor who was a Baylor alumnus who annoyed the crap outta me.

Air Force (2-1) @ Navy (2-1)

Now I'm picking service academy games? Jesus. Air Force wins using their secret weapon: T-REX IN JETS.

Code Red: Coach Unspellable Name for the win. Navy.

Mrs. Code Red: Go Navy, because my Dad was a sailor. Navy wins.

Miss. St (2-2) @ Georgia (2-2)

Code Red: The SEC's two most disappointing teams meet. I'll give the Bulldogs the edge here. Ha. Ha. I make a funny. MSU wins.

Iggins!: The difference is that Georgia has looked much better. MSU appears to suck. Georgia wins.

Mrs. Code Red: I pick the red and black team. Ha. Ha. Georgia.

Clemson (4-0) @ Virginia Tech (4-0)

Iggins!: Crap. Now Clemson is winning the big games they normally lose! If I pick Clemson they will certainly lose, so I'm pick Virginia Tech to win in hopes that Clemson makes me look stupid.

Code Red: Never. Trust. Clemson. Virginia Tech.

Mrs. Code Red: I'll go with the Hokies, because I just found out that means turkey. Awesome. Virginia Tech wins.

Nebraska (4-0) @ Wisconsin (4-0)

Code Red: Now things get interesting. I think Russell Wilson gives Wisconsin the edge. Badgers win.

Iggins!: The Big Ten is basically Wisconsin and a bunch of slightly above mediocre teams (Illinois may be slightly better than that). So Wisconsin wins.

Mrs. Code Red: I'll go with the Huskers. Nebraska wins.

Alabama (4-0) @ Florida (4-0)

Iggins!: You know my policy on Trent Richardson. Alabama wins.

Code Red: Sigh. I'll be the gambling man. Florida wins.

Mrs. Code Red: Alabama. Florida is so 2008.
