**NCAA College Football FBS Game Predictions**

**Week 6 2014 by SportPundit**

What a week this coming Week 6 promises to be for college football, with great matchups dominating the schedule and FIVE games between Top 25 teams, which is TEN teams, and there are plenty of other critical games on tap! We are crossing our fingers to stay above .500 in our calls this week! It will be tough.

Last week we were 42-11 in calling the winner, 28-22-1 against the spread and 32-19 against the CFPT prediction average.

**After the 5th Week of play we**

**are 265-59 in calling the winner (82%), 116-108 against the spread, excluding ties (52%), and**

**120-109 against the CFPT prediction average (52%).**

**Please note for our predictions that starting in the 3rd week we changed our formula so that 1 rating point on our rankings and ratings = 10 scoreboard points and .1 rating point = 1 point.**
