After a Week 5 that didn't drastically change the college football landscape too much, we attempted to answer the following questions:

• What are you even supposed to do against Alabama? I mean, really.

• How quickly does one feel helpless when betting against Clemson in 2017?

• What is Miami consistently doing well enough early on in the season to become the clear best team in Florida, besides having a healthy Ahmmon Richards on the roster?

• Where did QB Luke Falk and Washington State shine in their last-minute upset of an overwhelmed Sam Darnold and USC?

• Was Penn State's comfortable win over Indiana secretly kinda garbage?

• Is it time to start worrying about what Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook might look like against a top-flight playoff defense?

• After a dominant, balanced win over Mississippi State, have QB Jarrett Stidham and Auburn turned a corner?

... and much more!
