Just when I thought I had things turned around and figured out, Week 6 happens. I'm just moving on from last week without further comment.

Mississippi State -6.5 at Tennessee

Maybe this is a trap, but it's one I'm willing to fall into until proven otherwise. Tennessee is the only Power 5 team without an FBS win, and only one of its four losses came by less than a touchdown. Their two SEC defeats have been by a combined 77-17 total. There's some questions at quarterback for MSU, while the Vols may have a little offensive momentum from raw QB Brian Maurer, but what's not in question is the best player on the field in RB Kylin Hill. Facing Tennessee's 85th-ranked run defense, Hill will feast and carry them to victory.

Army -5 at Western Kentucky

I'm simply not buying what WKU is putting out there now. In their three wins, the Hilltoppers scored 20 points each time and held opponents to 30 total points. Those opponents, Old Dominion, UAB and FIU, rank 125th, 77th and 86th in scoring offense and 115th, 86th and 46th in rushing offense, respectively. Army averages 30.2 ppg, ranks eighth in rushing offense and will keep an already limited WKU offense off the scoreboard with ease thanks to time of possession. I had this as a 10-13 point spread prior to Army's loss last week to Tulane, so we can hopefully take advantage of the spread decrease.

Wake Forest -6.5 vs.
