Jack Geary’s College Football Week 6 Top 25 and Analysis
Brought to you by Pro Sports Fandom
This Alabama Football team is beginning to look more like an NFL team than a college team. I seriously don’t know who could beat Bama right now. 66-3 against Ole Miss is ridiculous. Bama now gets a quality Texas A&M team Saturday.
No one in the country has a better resume of wins than Clemson. Clemson has beaten three top 15 teams this season. They have won two college gameday matchups on the road and look ready to face up with anyone. The Tigers are the biggest threat to Alabama.
After a week of rest, Oklahoma should be prepared to roll over Iowa State.
Penn State cruised versus Indiana this past week. Now they will get to face a team that was 99 yards away from taking a top 10 team to overtime. Northwestern could stir up a close game at home against Penn State but in the end I expect the Nittany Lion’s talent to overcome the Wildcats.
Jake from State Fromm (Jake Fromm) showed flashes in UGA’s blowout against Tennessee. Either Tennessee flat out sucks or this Georgia defense is top 5 in the country. It’s probably a mixture of both. The Bulldogs haven’t allowed more than 19 points in a game this season and will look to continue that streak against a struggling Vanderbilt team.
After dark is when the Huskies feast on their weak prey. Oregon State was another victim of Washington’s powerful offense. Washington hasn’t come close to losing a game this year. Although, with the lack of ranked opponents on the Huskies’ schedule, it’s tough to give Washington appropriate recognition.
After a week off, the Horned Frogs will get a superb opportunity to play against West Virginia in a College Gameday matchup. Stopping Will Grier will be the key to victory Saturday.
Rutgers was an easy win for Ohio State, as expected. Ohio State is heavily favored again in this week’s matchup against Maryland.
Jim Harbaugh spent his his bye week diving off of the Michigan diving planks while still rocking his signature khakis. Michigan should be loose for their matchup with the state rival Michigan State. Also, John O’Korn will be heavily studied by Michigan State as they look to stop the new starting quarterback for Michigan.
The Badgers were 99 yards away from needing overtime to beat Northwestern. After taking a commanding lead in the 4th, they allowed a Northwestern to nearly make a miraculous comeback.
Wazzu! Last week I semi-predicted the fourth quarter survival of Washington state by writing “Washington State is a team that is good enough to outlast USC if it’s close late in the game”. Washington State proved their worth and will have to prove it once again in their matchup against Oregon.
This isn’t the Sam Darnold that the college football nation thought they would see thus far. Darnold only completed about half his passes and threw a costly interception. Although, nothing was more costly than the game-losing fumble by Darnold. USC can use this week’s game against Oregon State as a bounce back confidence booster.
The matchup against Florida State Saturday is lacking deserved attention due to Florida State’s forgettable start to the season. The U will have their hands full figuring out how to stop Florida State’s athletes. Of course, Miami is still favored in this game and will solidify themselves as a top 15 team by beating the Seminoles.
For the second week in a row, Auburn’s offense imploded for 49 points against a respected Mississippi State squad. Ole Miss is next up on the list of victims for Auburn.
Oklahoma State barely edged Texas Tech 41-34 this past week. Overall, I would take the win as a positive due to the fact that I still believe Texas Tech is underrated. The Cowboys enter bye week with a respectable 4-1 record. Mike Gundy’s mullet could use a week off.
Many probably didn’t even notice but USF was busy this Saturday dropping 61 against East Carolina. Unfortunately, the game against the 0-6 UMass Minutemen is cancelled this week. That means USF won’t be able to go for 100.
Louisville will enter Thursday with a lot to prove. NC State is a tough matchup for the Cards but Louisville is still the favorite. Lamar Jackson needs to reintroduce himself with a big time performance as it seems all of college football is sleeping on him once again.
Clemson was too much for the Hokies to handle. Virginia Tech just wasn’t able to take that leap into the top tier. Virginia Tech is still a talented top 20 team but isn’t talented enough to compete for a national title.
Notre Dame had a field day against Miami (OH) beating them 52-17. Josh Adams continues to impress and currently has more rushing yards than the current heisman favorite Saquon Barkley. Due to the Wimbush’s injury it appears that backup Ian Book will take the reigns at quarterback against North Carolina. Irish fans shouldn’t be worried though, Ian Book will surprise many with his terrific passing skills.
The Aztecs narrowly defeated another less talented team this past week. SDSU needs to create statement wins against lesser teams. UNLV would be a great start.
The Gators temporarily silenced the doubters with an impressive win against Vandy. Upcoming opponent LSU is imploring for a win after pathetically losing to Troy at home. If Florida truly is here to stay they shouldn’t have any problem against LSU.
After a week of rest, Utah gears up to face Stanford. In all honesty, it’s very likely that Stanford will boot the Utes out of the rankings. Good luck Utah…
West Virginia enters the matchup against TCU as 13 point underdogs. Personally, I believe that the Mountaineers are capable of pulling off the upset against a surging TCU team. Will Grier will have to continue to ball out for West Virginia to snag a win.
I was a rather earlier buyer on North Carolina State and it has paid dividends. An absolute huge test occurs for the Wolfpack on Thursday against Louisville. If the defense can contain Lamar Jackson they have a real shot to steal this game.
Welcome to the party UCF. I for one, didn’t expect an appearance in the rankings from UCF to happen this season. After a massacre against Memphis, I am left with no choice but to insert the ascending Knights into the top 25.
