College Football Roundup: Week 6

Pretty good weekend of college football last weekend. A few absurd blowouts, a couple close ones between top 25 teams. Let's dive into it.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide (@ #16 Arkansas, W 49-30): First test for Bama in a little while and they played well. But also, I can see Arkansas finishing like 7-5 this season, and then this game really doesn't mean shit.

2. Ohio State Buckeyes (vs. Indiana, W 38-17): Okay, Bucks. Sick.

3. Clemson Tigers (@ Boston College, W 56-10): I know BC sucks but it was nice to watch the Tigers beat up on a team a little bit. A lot of guys were used, and a lot of guys performed and got experience. Glad I got to watch the blow out in person too, was a great Friday night with my dad in Boston, catching up with some friends. 

4. Michigan Wolverines (vs. Rutgers, W 78-0): This is such a laugh out loud box score. Rutgers had like 39 total yards, and 2 first downs! Absurd.

5. Washington Huskies (@ Oregon, W 70-21): What an insane score. Oregon absolutely blows this year. Unbelievable.

6. Houston Cougars (@ Navy, L 46-40): Welp, there goes Houston's slim playoff chances. Undefeated no more.

7. Louisville Cardinals: BYE

8. Texas A&M Aggies (vs. #9 Tennessee, W 45-38 2OT): A&M really did not want to win this game. Did everything down the stretch to lose it. But they kept their cool in OT after blowing a big lead and came out on top. I can respect that I guess.

9. Tennessee Volunteers (@ #8 Texas A&M, L 45-38 2OT): Thank God Tennessee finally lost. I was getting sick of their shit.

10. Miami Hurricanes (vs. #23 Florida State, L 20-19): New coach, same Miami. New team, same Mark Richt. Getting an extra point blocked to lose a game after scoring a TD on an amazing 4th down play is as low as it gets. I believe Mark Richt is a great coach, but it's just hilarious how his teams never get it done. Not that Miami was supposed to do anything really special this season. But they had this game. A rivalry game against a perennial powerhouse, and they let it slip away. I hate FSU and was rooting for the Canes, but holy shit it was hilarious to watch.

11. Wisconsin Badgers: BYE

12. Nebraska Cornhuskers: BYE

13. Baylor Bears: BYE

14. Ole Miss Rebels: BYE

15. Stanford Cardinal (vs. Washington State, L 42-16): No clue how Stanford got destroyed at home by Wazzoo but they did, and that's now two blow out losses in a row. Tough.

16. Arkansas Razorbacks (vs. #1 Alabama, L 49-30): Really wanted Arkansas to win but they still blow.

17. North Carolina Tar Heels (vs. #25 Virginia Tech, L 34-3): Granted it was in a hurricane, but this was the first week that Mitch Trubisky didn't look really good. 13-33 for 58 yards and 2 picks is a hilarious stat line for a QB though, regardless of the weather.

18. Florida Gators (vs. LSU, postponed)

19. Boise State Broncos (@ New Mexico, W 49-21): Broncos still undefeated.

20. Oklahoma Sooners (vs. Texas, W 45-40): I hate Oklahoma. Woulda been nice for Texas to stop sucking and win, but that was a little too much to ask for.

21. Colorado Buffaloes (@ USC, L 21-17): Why the hell was Colorado ranked?

22. West Virginia Mountaineers: BYE

23. Florida State Seminoles (@ #10 Miami, W 20-19): Sick Miami, thanks for giving FSU another win. 

24. Utah Utes (vs. Arizona, W 36-23): Nice job Utah.

25. Virginia Tech (@ #17 North Carolina, W 34-3): Had no clue Tech was this good, but good for them. Solidifying themselves in the top 25.
