College Football Week 6 Outlook
Top 25 plus Opponents

Not too much change at the very top of the list, but from number 10 on down there’s been some movement up, down and all around. Almost everyone plays within their conference this week so there’s a lot on the line for nearly everyone. There are even a few games that pit ranked opponents against one another. #1 Alabama vs #19 South Carolina, #12 LSU vs #14 Florida, #13 Miami (Fla.) vs #24 Florida State, and #17 Michigan State vs #18 Michigan. Of course, in the last two, it wouldn’t matter if they were down around #115 or so, there is no love lost between teams in those patches!

Near the top of the list, the one big question everyone must be asking is: Will Wazzou be able to hold the Ducks to less than 100? (Current line is Oregon by 36 with an o/u probably in the basketball range.]

[The three numbers for the rankings are from the AP Top 25, The Harris Coaches’ Poll, and CBSSports.com. An “NR” means that that particular poll did Not Rank the team.]

1/1/1 Alabama (5-0) The Crimson Tide are on the road against the #19 South Carolina Gamecocks (3-1).

2/2/2 Ohio State (5-0) The Buckeyes host the Indiana Hoosiers (3-1).
