NCAA Football week 6 thread

Thursday, Oct 07, 2021 - NCAA Football Game
7:30 PM 303 Houston
304 Tulane +6˝

7:30 PM 305 Coastal Carolina
306 Arkansas State 19

Friday, Oct 08, 2021 - NCAA Football Game
7:00 PM 307 Temple
308 Cincinnati -29˝

Cincy is officially on the playoff clock. Needs to impress on a Friday night game to shore up their ND cred. Gotta be up big early.

7:00 PM 309 Charlotte
310 Florida International +3˝

10:30 PM 311 Stanford
312 Arizona State -13

ASU is the new favorite in the Pac-12 south and possibly the conference overall. With only one loss to a good BYU team, they're also a dark horse title contender. First, they've got to beat a Stanford team that has looked great since changing QBs after a season opening loss to KSU.


Saturday, Oct 09, 2021 - NCAA Football Game
12:00 PM 315 Michigan State
316 Rutgers +5˝

Is Sparty for real? Is Schiano the best coach in America? LOL Tennessee.

12:00 PM 323 Maryland
324 Ohio State -21


12:00 PM 325 Akron
326 Bowling Green -14˝

12:00 PM 327 Northern Illinois
328 Toledo -12˝

12:00 PM 351 South Carolina
352 Tennessee -10˝

12:00 PM 361 West Virginia
362 Baylor -3

12:00 PM 369 Vanderbilt
370 Florida -39

12:00 PM 379 Oklahoma
380 Texas +3˝

Winner has one foot in the big-12 title game. Texas has looked great outside of that Arkansas beatdown, while I think the Oklahoma hate is getting a little overblown.

12:00 PM 389 Arkansas
390 Mississippi -5˝

Oof. This one looked a lot better last weekend.

12:30 PM 331 Georgia Tech
332 Duke +3˝

2:00 PM 343 Old Dominion
344 Marshall -21

3:00 PM 337 Virginia
338 Louisville -2˝

3:30 PM 313 Florida State
314 North Carolina -17

3:30 PM 317 Connecticut
318 Massachusetts +3˝

3:30 PM 319 Wake Forest
320 Syracuse +5˝

Looking at Wake's schedule is so tilting. But they're undefeated or whatever, so take your bold.

3:30 PM 333 Ball State
334 Western Michigan -11

3:30 PM 335 Middle Tennessee State
336 Liberty -19˝

3:30 PM 341 Boise State
342 BYU -6


3:30 PM 345 San Jose State
346 Colorado State -2

3:30 PM 353 SMU
354 Navy +13˝

3:30 PM 357 Georgia
358 Auburn +15˝


3:30 PM 367 Florida Atlantic
368 UAB -4˝

3:30 PM 375 Wisconsin
376 Illinois 10

3:30 PM 377 Miami Ohio
378 Eastern Michigan 2

3:30 PM 385 Central Michigan
386 Ohio 5

4:00 PM 349 Oregon State
350 Washington State +3˝

4:00 PM 363 North Texas
364 Missouri -19

4:00 PM 395 Penn State
396 Iowa -1

first top-5 b1g matchup not involving OSU in 25 years or something like that

6:00 PM 321 East Carolina
322 Central Florida -10

7:00 PM 329 Buffalo
330 Kent State -5˝

7:00 PM 339 Wyoming
340 Air Force -6

7:00 PM 355 TCU
356 Texas Tech +1˝

7:00 PM 365 South Alabama
366 Texas State +3˝

7:00 PM 383 Georgia Southern
384 Troy -5˝

7:00 PM 391 UTEP
392 Southern Miss 2

7:00 PM 393 UTSA
394 Western Kentucky -3˝

7:30 PM 359 LSU
360 Kentucky -3

Florida basically beat themselves last weekend, but it still goes in the W column for UK. Ed O's seat starting to get toasty at LSU

7:30 PM 381 Michigan
382 Nebraska +3˝

Nebraska is actually... not bad? They've run worse than any team in America the last couple of years, going 5-15 in one score games. This line opened at +1 before drifting up a couple of points. Call me crazy, but I like big red here.

7:30 PM 397 Notre Dame
398 Virginia Tech pk

I guess both of these teams are technically still alive in the title race. This one probably means more to Cincinnati than it does to the teams on either sideline.

8:00 PM 347 Utah
348 USC -3

8:00 PM 373 Georgia State
374 UL Monroe 16

8:00 PM 387 Alabama
388 Texas A&M 18

lol aggy

9:00 PM 371 Memphis
372 Tulsa -3

9:00 PM 401 New Mexico
402 San Diego State -19˝

10:30 PM 399 UCLA
400 Arizona 16

10:30 PM 403 New Mexico State
404 Nevada -30˝

Re: NCAA Football week 6 thread

Also, I don't think BYU is that good (see: one score wins over Arizona and USF), but they're putting together a legitimate P5 schedule. If they win out - and they very well might - they deserve as much playoff opportunity as anybody. They probably have a tougher schedule than Cincy or Wake Forest.

If I were them, I'd try and replace one of their games to really hammer the point home and get in there over Cincinnati. (I assume they're not allowed to play a 13th game against ND?)

Clemson plays UConn on 11/13, and BYU has a bye, and could drop Idaho State the week prior.

Let's say Clemson reels off 4 in a row and gets back into the top-15 or so. As it stands, their schedule is likely to include only one ranked team (Wake) with the possibility of a second in the ACC-CG.

Beating a ~#7 ranked BYU team could vault them back into the national conversation if there's chaos in the other leagues (Pac-12, Big-12 and B1G all produce 2 loss champions which honestly doesn't seem that unlikely)



Or what about Ole Miss replacing Liberty with BYU on 11/6?

Re: NCAA Football week 6 thread

Who would have ever guessed two years ago, that in two years UK would be favored over LSU.

I would be worried about a hangover game if there was lesser name on the jersey than LSU. Not to say it wouldn't surprise me in the least if LSU won, but I'm still expecting the fans and team to bring it.

They have absolutely zero run game so if Kentucky has any semblance of a pass defense you’ll win pretty easily. Even then LSU’s qb is very questionably average. I think Kentucky wins by 10+

There have been ten Ohio St. vs Michigan games with both ranked in the AP top five at the time of the game. There have been a total of 16 other B1G games with both teams ranked in the top five. The last time it happened with neither Ohio St. nor Michigan in the regular season (Iowa and Sparty met in the 2015 B1G title game): Minnesota vs Wisconsin in 1962.

Can’t expect Ole Miss to pass up spanking that Hugh Freeze ass.


Also, I’m on Temple; QB Mathis is back and looked good last week in the upset. He was a stud prospect who transferred from Georgia after emergency brain surgery for a cyst.

Dangerous game to ever be confident any year. Taking the o63 seems good though.

I suppose Iowa was fringe top25 when Paterno lost something like 9 out of 10 to the Hawkeyes. Such as what woulda likely been a BCS national title debacle in 2008.

He opened 2020 as the starting QB and got pulled in first half of game 1 vs Arkansas. Played one game later, and wasn't any good.

Re: NCAA Football week 6 thread

Lmao it's like 14 to 3 YPP after 1 quarter, and Oklahoma got to run a decent number of plays

And then first(?) play of 2nd Q is a 66-yard Oklahoma run to cut it to 28-14

Pretty sure Sark is gonna lose this game

In a very small sample of like 2 drives or so, Rattlers backup seems way better than Rattler. Hes gotta be nervous he doesn't get his job back.
