Welcome back to the sixth edition of the PSF College Football Weekly Pick’em. It’s been an incredible season already and there are is so much more action to go. Week 5 was very interesting, similar to the first four weeks. We saw Ohio State go into Beaver Stadium to knock off their Big Ten rival, Penn State. Clemson narrowly survived a big upset bid by Syracuse, and West Virginia went into Lubbock to get a win over a ranked Texas Tech team. Notre Dame made another push at their case for being a top five team in the nation with a victory over a top ten Stanford squad. With all of that said, this sets up another exciting week of action-packed college football for us! Your favorite writers are set to pick tons of this week’s games, and hopefully gain ground in the overall standings.
Each week of the season, the crew will pick a select group of games and we will publish our picks on Pro Sports Fandom. At the conclusion of the week, we will calculate the results and update our standings. If you need a reminder of how this format works, I’ll discuss that here. Points will be rewarded each week based on the weekly standings (based on everybody’s weekly record). One note of importance is that one point is still rewarded for each correct pick (excluding Game of the Week picks, which are worth three points).
