Pack Pride Pick 'Em: Week 5

Pack Pride brings back our popular feature where our employees and a couple of local writers select college football winners throughout the 2010 season.

Each writer is asked to pick six games a week, with one pick being designated as the "lock of the week." Each correct pick receives one point. Each "lock of the week" picked correctly receives two points. Picks are made against the spread, and the spreads used are from the beginning of the week when lines are originally posted.

All picks will be posted here on the day before games begin. The following week, results will be posted from the previous week's picks, including updated rankings so our members can see who truly knows college football.

In addition, is also allowing one NC State fan a week (each week it will be someone different) to post their picks against the competitors. To have a chance to be that fan, visit the Premium Football Message Board during the week for details.
