TNIAAM College Football Pick'em: Week 5 Recap & Standings

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Here are the results for TNIAAM's College Football Pick'em for Week 5.

The cream is rising to the top. That's the theme for this week's TNIAAM college pick'em recap.

While tallying the results this week I noticed a common theme: Those pickers that have been successful are continuing to be successful, while those that are struggling are really struggling. I am sadly one of the latter.

What is new this week is the leader, which is nephtaly.rivera, who leapfrogged three-week leader klydefrog thanks to an impressive 8-3-2 week. That mark was the best of the week, which gives you an idea of how tough this week was. Other pickers that had a week-best 8-3-2 performance were: slowpoke24x, OrangeNYC, E Scott and Rocket Ship Science.

The big week helped E Scott jump 20 spots in the standings, while Rocket Ship Science went from T59 to a T35. Solid job.

The worst week was had by nymetsfan1226, who went 2-9-2. The most common records were smack dab in the middle at 5-6-2 and 6-5-2. Again, this was a tough week.

As for the easiest and hardest games to pick. The easiest game was Miami covering the 19 points to South Florida -- only 7 pickers went with USF -- and Clemson covering the 29 points over Wake Forest, which had only 12 wrong selections.

Fifty-eight pickers got the Duke-Troy match-up wrong, 50 fake gamblers stayed on the FSU train and lost, however, a week-high 58 of us went with South Carolina and suffered the consequences.

There were two pushes this week, as Georgia's 3-point win over LSU forced a tie and the Buckeyes won by just a touchdown over the Badgers, which knotted things up.

Below are this weeks updated standings:
