Local10.com college football picks: Week 6 results

By Peter Burke - Local10.com Managing Editor

It was a rough weekend for the college football prognosticators.

The entire group underestimated Florida, overestimated Miami and disregarded Cincinnati in a weekend of upsets.

Local 10 sports director Will Manso remains in first place with a 50-10 overall record, while sports reporter Clay Ferraro is one game behind at 49-11. They both finished 6-3 on the week.

Things got off to a bad start Friday night when Cincinnati upended UCF 27-24. 

The Gators (6-0) proved they are contenders in the Southeastern Conference title hunt with a 24-13 victory over previously unbeaten Auburn at "The Swamp."

Miami was probably the biggest disappointment, failing to capitalize after rallying from a 28-point deficit against Virginia Tech. The Hurricanes (2-3) are off to their worst start since Al Golden's first season in 2011.

Ian Margol slipped to three games behind after a 5-4 weekend that included a woeful vote of confidence in UMass. The Minutemen lost to FIU 44-0.

It was even worse for last-place Liane Morejon, who went 4-5 after missing the mark on all of the above games, plus USF's 48-22 win at UConn. The Bulls may be bad this season, but the Huskies are worse.

UCF 24, at Cincinnati 27
Oklahoma 45, at Kansas 20
Iowa 3, at Michigan 10
