College Football Picks: Week 6 Predictions For Every Game

Navy (2-2) at Air Force (1-3), 3:30 p.m. ET

The first leg of the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy isn't as glamorous as in previous years because neither rushing attack has been consistent. Although Navy has dropped three of its last four trips to Colorado Springs, Air Force's offense has been mediocre at best.

Prediction: Navy 35, Air Force 28

         

Ohio (2-2) at Kent State (1-4), 3:30 p.m. ET

After a slow start to the campaign, Ohio unleashed its offensive potential in Week 5. The Bobcats shredded UMass for 58 points and 664 yards, and Kent State's 118th-ranked defense won't be able to handle that firepower.

Prediction: Ohio 45, Kent State 27

                 

Iowa (3-1) at Minnesota (3-1), 3:30 p.m. ET

Defense carried Minnesota to three early wins, overshadowing a young offense. Things changed in a 42-13 loss at Maryland and probably won't improve against Iowa. The Hawkeyes have only surrendered 4.3 yards per snap.

Prediction: Iowa 31, Minnesota 16

             

Miami, Ohio (1-4) at Akron (2-1), 3:30 p.m. ET

Despite what the records may suggest, OddsShark doesn't have Akron as an overwhelming favorite. Still, the Zips ceded only a 29.8 third-down conversion rate while taking on Northwestern and Iowa State. That should quiet a slowly improving Miami offense.

Prediction: Akron 28, Miami 23

         

Bowling Green (1-4) at Toledo (2-2), 3:30 p.m. ET

The status of quarterback Mitchell Guadagni (concussion) provides a little uncertainty, but Toledo should thrive either way. Bowling Green's defense, which has allowed 7.4 yards per play, is a wreck.

Prediction: Toledo 41, Bowling Green 20

                

South Alabama (1-4) at Georgia Southern (3-1), 3:30 p.m. ET

In three road games, South Alabama has surrendered at least seven yards per snap. Georgia Southern, meanwhile, has scampered for 300-plus yards in every game, excluding a trip to Clemson. The Eagles should cruise.

Prediction: Georgia Southern 42, South Alabama 16

         

Kansas State (2-3) at Baylor (3-2), 3:30 p.m. ET

This isn't a typical Kansas State team. The Wildcats have never thrived on pace, but their offensive efficiency often atoned for a slow tempo. Since that's not happening in 2018, Kansas State probably can't control the clock to hold off Baylor, which is averaging 35.6 points per game.

Prediction: Baylor 34, Kansas State 20

                

South Florida (4-0) at UMass (2-4), 3:30 p.m. ET

This is a challenging matchup to forecast because UMass has put together its best two showings at home, with 63- and 49-point efforts. However, the visitors have allowed only 5.8 yards per pass attempt. South Florida has the edge, yet the opposite result is easily foreseeable.

Prediction: South Florida 34, UMass 29

         

UL Monroe (2-3) at Ole Miss (3-2), 4 p.m. ET

Through five weeks, there's a simple summary of Ole Miss: overwhelmed against top competition, overbearing against inferior teams. Given that Louisiana-Monroe ranks 116th defensively, an inconsistent Ole Miss passing game should put up huge numbers.

Prediction: Ole Miss 52, UL Monroe 24

               

New Mexico (2-2) at UNLV (2-2), 4 p.m. ET

Whichever run defense breaks first will likely shape this Mountain West clash. Last year, UNLV quarterback Armani Rogers posted a season-high 404 yards of total offense in this matchup, and his mobility will put high stress on a New Mexico defense ceding 6.7 yards per play.

Prediction: UNLV 42, New Mexico 35

             

Old Dominion (1-4) at Florida Atlantic (2-3), 5 p.m. ET

Put simply, Florida Atlantic's offense hasn't progressed as anticipated under quarterback Chris Robison. The Owls should be able to lean on running back Devin Singletary to dispatch Old Dominion, but any struggles on the ground will swing this contest in the Monarchs' favor because FAU's defense is a disaster.

Prediction: Florida Atlantic 38, Old Dominion 31
