College Football Takeaways Week 5

Biggest Takeaway in the SEC

Dan: Ed Orgeron was not fit for the job.

Jason: Nick Fitzgerald and the Mississippi State Bulldogs were good for one week… against a bad LSU team

Zach: Texas A&M is quietly 4-1, and their one loss was a game they easily should have won were it not for the heroics of Chosen Rosen.

Biggest Takeaway in the Pac-12

Dan: Is Sam Darnold overrated? If he keeps committing turnovers then yes.

Jason: Josh Rosen is an elite talent. He continuously carries a mediocre team to wins

Zach: Luke Falk is a legitimate Heisman contender.

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 12

Dan: It looks like Kansas is Baylor’s only chance for a win this year.

Jason: The talent gap is HUGE.

Zach: Mason Rudolph rebounded extremely well to cement his spot as one of the Heisman favorites.

Biggest Takeaway in the ACC + ND

Dan: Josh Adams is the most underrated player in the country.

Jason: Notre Dame needs to win a game against a ranked team before I can look at them realistically as a contender

Zach: Brandon Wimbush NEEDS to pass the ball a lot better and not be so heavily reliant on his amazing running ability. If not, Notre Dame does not stand a great chance against USC in 3 weeks.

Biggest Takeaway in the Big 10

Dan: At least 3 or 4 one loss teams will come out of the Big Ten.

Jason: Brian Lewerke has been unbelievably inconsistent this year. This week we will see what he is all about.

Zach: Although promising after a strong week 1 against Ohio State, Richard Lagow is struggling and should not be the starter for Indiana.

Player of the Week

Dan: Jordan Chunn

Jason: Saquon Barkley

Zach: Bryce Love

Surprise Player of the Week

Dan: Malik Davis

Jason: Luke Falk

Zach: Max Browne

Bold Prediction for the Season

Dan: With so many weak schedules there will be at least two undefeated power five teams along with four other one loss teams.

Jason: LSU and Mississippi State fail to make a bowl game.

Zach: Florida State will finish with 7 losses this year.
