James, "the Real Grande" joins the panel as guest picker for Week 5 of Football Picks.  We'll look at a very wild week in college football which had one top ten upset of Oklahoma State, and three other near-top-ten-upsets.   What made USC so shaky at Cal?  Is Penn State's survival at Iowa City a good building block?  How did woebegone Baylor suddenly catch up to Oklahoma in the second half, only to come short?  In the NFL we look at a long running classic: Steelers vs Ravens.  How will both teams rebound from embarrassing losses to bad teams last week?  Then our picks, college picks and pro.  Ron, John, Dave, and James deliver picks on air, while Andy sends the picks via text.
