College football picks for Week 5; Michigan is the best bet

Michigan will be angry after its embarrassing performance at home against Akron a week ago. It is clear the Wolverines weren't focussed against the FCS foe.
How bad was that narrow win? Well, consider that Akron was nowhere near as good as the Appalachian State team that shocked the Big Blue a few years ago at Ann Arbor.
That spells bad news for the Huskies who probably couldn't beat Akron anyways.
Expect Michigan to roll on the road at UConn just as UCLA did as my best bet a week ago.

Best Bet: Michigan.
Preferred: USC, Kansas State, Arkansas State, Oregon State.
