Week 6 Top 25 Recap and My Top 25

“It’s a good week to be playing Kansas” said Beckett, he was right.

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide 65, Arkansas Razorbacks 31

Alabama beats another opponents into submission and sleepwalks through the game. Tua remains perfect. Ho-hum.

#2 Georgia Bulldogs 41, Vanderbilt Commodores 13

Vanderbilt kicked a field goal to open the scoring in this game, making the Mountaineers the last team to never trail in a game this season.

#3 Ohio State Buckeyes 49, Indiana Hoosiers 26

Dwayne Haskins and the Buckeyes were sloppy and won by 23. Gee that sounds really familiar....

#4 Clemson Tigers 63, Wake Forest Demon Deacons 3

Trevor Lawrence returned after a nasty collision last week appeared to take him out. The ACC is so bad.

#22 Florida Gators 27, #5 LSU Tigers 19

The Gators picked off quarterback Joe Burrow twice, including one that was the difference in the game.

#6 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 45, Virginia Tech Hokies 23

Notre Dame walked into Lane Stadium in the heart of Enter Sandman and took the Hokies best shot before dismantling them. The Irish look like a lock for the playoffs now.

#19 Texas Longhorns 48, #7 Oklahoma Sooners 45

The Longhorns jumped on the Sooners early, building a 45-24 lead after three quarters. Now Texas is one of two remaining teams unbeaten in conference.

Mississippi State Bulldogs 23, #8 Auburn Tigers 9

Leading just 16-9 with a minute in the game, quarterback Nick Fitzgerald scampered to the endzone to ice the game. The loss could spell the end of the Pac-12’s playoff chances. (Washington lost to Auburn)

#9 West Virginia Mountaineers 38, Kansas Jayhawks 22

Four turnovers, including three in the redzone and the Mountaineers still won by 16 at home and never trailed.

#10 Washington Huskies 31, UCLA Bruins 24

Chip Kelly’s return to college football is not going as well as planned as the Bruins remain winless.

#12 UCF Knights 48, SMU Mustangs 20

UCF remains the top Group of Five team and is in line for a New Year’s Six bowl.

Texas A&M Aggies 20, #13 Kentucky Wildcats 14

The Wildcats forced overtime with a fumble return for a touchdown, but failed to give the ball to Benny Snell in overtime.

Utah Utes 40, #14 Stanford Cardinal 21

Stanford needed a miracle to beat Oregon, then got beat down by Notre Dame. The loss begins to put serious doubt on the Pac-12 and the playoffs.

#15 Michigan Wolverines 42, Maryland Terrapins 21

Michigan’s Deathtober begins next week as they host Wisconsin, travel to Michigan State then host Penn State. We’ll know how good the Wolverines are in November.

#16 Wisconsin Badgers 41, Nebraska Cornhuskers 24

The Scott Frost train at Nebraska is off the rails and careening towards a cliff. Nebraska could wind up with only one win this season.

#17 Miami-Florida Hurricanes 28, Florida State Seminoles 27

Florida State punted with 4 minutes left, asking its defense to stop Miami and get the ball back. It didn’t.

Northwestern Wildcats 29, #20 Michigan State Spartans 19

The Big Ten is Ohio State and a bunch of leftovers. Michigan State remains frustrating as they lose to teams they shouldn’t.

#21 Colorado Buffaloes 28, Arizona State Sun Devils 21

The Buffs remain undefeated and would win the P12 South.

#23 NC State Wolfpack 28, Boston College 23

The ‘Pack get their shot at beating Clemson. If they can, then NC State would take a commanding lead in the ACC Atlantic and possibly end the playoff hopes for the ACC.

Iowa St. Cyclones 48, #25 Oklahoma State Cowboys 42

The Cyclones prove that this was much more of a rebuilding year for Mike Gundy’s squad than most people believed.

My Top 25

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Notre Dame
  4. Georgia
  5. Clemson
  6. West Virginia
  7. UCF
  8. Texas
  9. Penn State
  10. Washington
  11. Michigan
  12. Oklahoma
  13. Wisconsin
  14. LSU
  15. Miami
  16. Kentucky
  17. Colorado
  18. Florida
  19. NC State
  20. Auburn
  21. Oregon
  22. Cincinnati
  23. USF
  24. Buffalo
  25. Hawaii

Alabama and Ohio State are the clear two best teams in the country right now and the gap between Alabama and Ohio State is bigger than the gap between Ohio State and the next 3-4 teams. Based on their resume, I have Notre Dame #3 but Georgia can prove their worth the next few weeks. Clemson looks amazing but the ACC is trash. We’ll have a better understanding next week after they play NC State. The Mountaineers continue to put their head down and win. They will prove how good they are in November. Did you know that Cincinnati, USF, Buffalo and Hawaii are a combined 22-2?
