Week 5 of college football is set to kick off, and although there may not be any high-profile matchups on the schedule, there is still the potential for surprise upsets. The Big Ten conference, in particular, lacks a marquee game this week, with its favorites playing in ranked matchups.
One intriguing matchup to watch is between No. 22 Florida and Kentucky in the SEC East battle. Florida finds themselves as the underdog in this game, which could make for an exciting contest. On the other hand, No. 1 Georgia is heavily favored in the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry against Auburn.
In another game to keep an eye on, No. 8 USC faces a significant test against Colorado. Colorado lost its ranking last week, but that doesn’t mean they won’t put up a fight against USC. Similarly, No. 3 Texas will try to continue their hot start against No. 24 Kansas, who will look to upset the Longhorns.
Meanwhile, No. 11 Notre Dame aims to bounce back after a heartbreaking loss against No. 17 Duke. Both teams will be hungry for a win in this matchup.
Experts have weighed in on some of the key games this week. For instance, some predict that the Florida vs. Kentucky game will have a total score below 44, while the USC vs. Colorado game is expected to have a total score over 73.5.
In terms of betting odds, Georgia is favored by a hefty 14.5 points in their matchup against Auburn. Kansas, on the other hand, is expected to cover the 16.5-point spread against Texas. Lastly, according to predictions, the Notre Dame vs. Duke game is likely to be low-scoring, favoring the under 54 points pick.
