College Football Roundup: Week 6

Another great week of college football. Had a few solid matchups, some upsets, some near upsets, some blowouts. Gotta love it.

1. Ohio State Buckeyes (vs. Maryland, W 49-28): Maryland kept it close in the first half but the Buckeyes pulled away in the second. Cardale had a solid game but also they're using JT Barrett more down near the red zone and I think that may help them get back on track. They have a lot of skilled players. Nothing wrong with trying to get all of them involved.

2. TCU Horned Frogs (@ Kansas State, W 52-45): K State was ROLLING. A 28 point second quarter had them up 35-17 at halftime, but Trevone Boykin went to work in the second half and TCU outscored K State 35-10. What a game. 

3. Baylor Bears (@ Kansas, W 66-7): Can't wait til Baylor plays a good team. It'll be a real test and I want to see if they're a fraud team or not. And I know Kansas is in their conference and they don't decide the conference schedule, but I'm just saying I wanna see them play someone good.

4. Michigan State Spartans (@ Rutgers, W 31-24): Sick game Sparty. You know you played Rutgers right? Ya know, the team who spikes the ball on 4th down? Yeah them.

5. Utah Utes (vs. #23 California, W 30-24): The Utes keep on rolling. Devontae Booker had a huge game on the ground to lead the way, and the defense picked off Goff 5 times which is unreal. Utah's QB made some good plays, but wasn't too hot himself so it was a pretty sloppy game.

6. Clemson Tigers (vs. Georgia Tech, W 43-24): I'm kinda pissed Georgia Tech sucks so much because this win doesn't really mean anything anymore. That being said, Clemson dominated every facet of this game and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Deshaun made one mistake again, but that was it. Seems like he throws a pick every game now which sucks, but whatever. A couple busted plays on defense resulted in 96 yards of Tech's total 230 yards. Other than that the defense was insane. Justin Thomas is gonna have nightmares after Saturday. 71 rushing yards is the lowest total for the Yellow Jackets in the Paul Johnson era which is impressive since all they do is run the ball. I LOVE our defense. Also, save for our shitty center, our offense looks pretty solid. 
Oh, and Dabo keeps the fire moves coming.

7. LSU Tigers (@ South Carolina, W 45-24): It was a road game for LSU but it was played in Baton Rouge due to the flooding in South Carolina. LSU was classy about it all week which was nice, and especially Leonard Fournette who offered to auction off his jersey after the game for flood victims. He also had another big game en route to another rout. Also, the chickens BLOW.

8. Alabam Crimson Tide (vs. Arkansas, W 27-14): Arkansas is pretty much the exact same team as last year. Hold a lead for a half, maybe longer, and then just start sucking. Also, I don't think Bama is a great football team. I mean, they had a solid win last week but struggled at home this week against a team that isn't very good. Who knows.

9. Texas A&M Aggies: BYE

10. Oklahoma Sooners (@ Texas, L 24-17): For the first five weeks of the season, Texas did not show up at all and then the Red River Rivalry rolls around and they pretty much owned Oklahoma. Tough day for the Sooners. You can never overlook a rival.

11. Florida Gators (@ Missouri, W 21-3): Hey good thing I wait so long to write these, because now I can write it knowing that Florida's QB Will Grier is suspended for the year for PEDs. Florida's defense is good, but I have no idea how skilled their backup QB is so I doubt the Gators will be able to keep it going like they are. Unless the kid's a stud or something.

12. Florida State Seminoles (vs. Miami, W 29-24): Once again, FSU with a very unimpressive win. I thought they had it in the bag and then Miami came roaring back, just to underwhelm us all at the end of the game as always. I can't wait til Clemson crushes both of these teams.

13. Northwestern Wildcats (@ #18 Michigan, L 38-0): And just like that Northwestern's run is over. Michigan's defense is just too good. Shake it off Wildcats, you still got some games to win against teams who actually give up points on occasion. Capitalize on those. This was not your week.

14. Ole Miss Rebels (vs. New Mexico State, W 52-3): Good news for Ole Miss is that they're back on track after losing to Florida last week. Bad news is that they beat New Mexico St which does not mean a single thing.

15. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (vs. Navy, W 41-24): Navy kept it close for a little while but ND pulled away. Not really much else to say about this game. I'm sure playing Georgia Tech already this year helped out against Navy's option attack. Other than that, I got nothing else.

16. Stanford Cardinal: BYE

17. USC Trojans (vs. Washington, L 17-12): Not only did USC lose to Washington on Thursday night at home, but their coach is also an alcoholic and got fired. Tough few days for Trojans fans. I thought they'd be back this year, but clearly they still suck. Dammit.

18. Michigan Wolverines (vs. #13 Northwestern, W 38-0): THREE shutouts in a row, and this one coming against the #13 team in the country. Unreal! Jim Harbaugh has completely turned this team around, and has created the best defense in the country. I'm pretty sure these guys are the only defense playing better than Clemson's right now. Hope they keep it rolling this week when they play Michigan State. 

19. Georgia Bulldogs (@ Tennessee, L 38-31): An exciting game that came down to the wire, but the big story was Nick Chubb getting injured. The video of his knee getting bent in a disgusting way was terrible. Hope he gets back soon. Nothing seems to ever go UGA's way. 

20. UCLA Bruins: BYE

21. Oklahoma State Cowboys (@ West Virginia, W 33-26 OT): I didn't get to see this game, but any OT is exciting, especially when you have a team's undefeated season on the line. West Virginia is a tough out up there in Morgantown, so to come out of there alive is great. However, it does seem like OK State was pretty sloppy. Definitely gotta be on the top of their game once they face the cream of the crop in the Big 12. 

22. Iowa Hawkeyes (vs. Illinois, W 29-20): How bout the Hawks entering the top 25? I know nothing about this team except for the fact they're undefeated.

23. California Golden Bears (@ #5 Utah, L 30-24): 5 picks for Jared Goff is not good. However, they were still in this game down to the end. Goff is their best player so if he can not screw up like he did against the Utes, I think Cal might be just fine after this game.

24. Toledo Rockets (vs. Kent State, W 38-7): Uhhhhh...

25. Boise State Broncos (@ Colorado State, W 41-10): Aaaaand Boise State is back in the top 25. Things are getting weird down here at the bottom. Good win for the Broncos here though.

And that about does it for week 6. Sorry it was so late again but whatever. I was on fall break. Not trying to do things on vacation.
