Will the big dogs bark in Week 5? Will there be another ODU or Army to shock the world? Let’s take look at some of the phenomenal matchups this week highlighted by West Virginia/Texas Tech, Florida/Mississippi State, Ohio State/Penn State and Stanford/Notre Dame.

*West Virginia is 3-0 SU and ATS as they face a very tough road test at Lubbock. Texas Tech is coming off a 41-17 road win, while the Mountaineers crushed Kansas State last week, 35-6. West Virginia quarterback Will Grier is off to a great start with 14 TDs and just three picks. But the West Virginia defense will be tested by the top offense in the nation led by Allan Bowman, who has thrown for 1,557 yards with 10 TDs. Take the home dog and the Red Raiders.

*Mississippi State has been waiting for this one. Former head coach Dan Mullen leads Florida, who is coming off a 47-21 romp over Tennessee last week. Quarterback Feleipe Franks threw three TDs in that game and has the talent to lift an offense that has underachieved. The Bulldogs were shocked by upstart Kentucky last week, 28-7 on the road. They committed 16 penalties and rushed for just 56 yards. QB Nick Fitzgerald has to be productive on the ground for Mississippi State to be successful. The Gators are lousy against the run so go with the Bulldogs in this one to beat Mullen in his return to Starkville.

*Penn State hosts Ohio State in the Game of the Week. Both teams are ranked in the top 10 and are undefeated. Both offenses average over 50 points and 500 yards. OSU quarterback Dwayne Haskins already has an incredible 16 touchdown passes and he’s not playing full games due to their lopsided wins. PSU QB Trace McSorley has to take more offensive responsibility this season with Saquon Barkley gone to the NFL The Nittany Lions will miss Barkley in this one. Go with the Buckeyes on the road.

*Stanford and Notre Dame are both undefeated and 4-0 when they meet in South Bend on Saturday. Stanford is coming off an improbable comeback win last Saturday, where they came back from being down 31-7 to win 38-31 in overtime. Bryce Love has been struggling this season with 254 rushing yards and two TDs after amassing 2,118 yards last season. Notre Dame is pretty balanced on offense and they are at home. The Cardinal were fortunate to win last week, but they won’t have that same luck of the Irish in this one. Go with Notre Dame at home.
