Week 6 football picks

Each week, Sports Editor Mark Podolski picks five games, four against the spread: one high school, two college and two NFL.

A 4-1 week puts the season mark at 16-9, so let's get ready for Week 6:


North at University: University knocked off Madison in Hunting Valley for a huge PAC win earlier in the season. North lost at Madison but without its best running back Jordan Morris, who's back for this game. If North plays mistake-free, the Rangers win. PICK: North 28, University 21


Michigan (+3) at Michigan State: The question here is, is either team legit? I feel a little stronger about the Wolverines than the Spartans. PICK: Michigan 31, Michigan State 30

Ohio State (+3.5) at Illinois: The Buckeyes play inspired ball until Braxton Miller got hurt and the defense fell apart at Nebraska. Historically, OSU has had a lot of trouble in Champaign, Ill. PICK: Illinois 20, Ohio State 14


Browns (+7) at Oakland: Will the Peyton Hillis saga ever end? Here's a start: Give Hillis the ball 20-plus times and see what happens. PICK: Oakland 23, Browns 17

Dalllas (+7) at New England: The Patriots have too many weapons, and Cowboys QB Tony Romo will make a few turnovers. PICK: New England 34, Dallas 24
