College football Week 5 gets underway early, with big games on Thursday and Friday. Here are our picks.
Once again, The Spun’s weekly staff picks contest has been turned on its head by a wild week of results. After taking a two-full game lead last week, Aaron Nanavaty has fallen to third, three games behind Andrew McCarty. Matt Lombardi remains in the basement, but he picked up a game on first place, and is now joined by Steve Driscoll.
McCarty and Jen X. Williams finished tied for the best Week 4, going 30-6 each.
