6 Grueling Truth’s we learned during week 6 of the 2021 College Football Season

DALLAS, TEXAS - OCTOBER 09: Caleb Williams #13 of the Oklahoma Sooners looks to pass in the fourth quarter against the Texas Longhorns during the 2021 AT&T Red River Showdown at Cotton Bowl on October 09, 2021 in Dallas, Texas. (Photo by Tim Warner/Getty Images)

1) The best team in the Big 10 is?

Ohio State, there I said it; I know that Iowa beat Penn State, but I also know that if Sean Clifford doesn’t get hurt, the Nittany Lions would have won the game. Why Ohio State? Why not! In the last two weeks, the Buckeyes are clicking and had beat the brakes off of Rutgers, who the week before had almost beat Michigan in the “Big House” and Maryland. I know Maryland is not a great team, but the beating the Buckeyes put on them has to raise some eyebrows. The Big Ten will come down to Ohio State and Penn State, and the Buckeyes are the most talented team in the country.

2) Cincinnati does have a shot at the CFP

The biggest issue for the Bearcats is the rest of the schedule is pretty average except for a game against a good SMU team. With that being said, BYU losing helped, Alabama losing helped, and Notre Dame won. The Bearcats are a much more physical team than the past years who have made a run like this, and their ability to run the ball and play defense at an elite level gives them a real shot at making the final four.

3) Caleb Williams just saved the Oklahoma Sooners season

Spencer Rattler was supposed to be a favorite to win the Heisman, which was not the case once the season began. Trailing their rivals, the Texas longhorns 38-20 at the half led the Sooners to make the switch to Caleb Williams, and Williams led the Sooners like he was Baker Mayfield and 35 second-half points later, the Sooners are still in play for the CFP.

4) Alabama is not invincible this season

The Tide didn’t just lose on Saturday. They lost to an unranked opponent. The near-miss at Florida should have warned us that these are not the dominating Alabama teams of the past decade. With that being said, though, with Nick Saban at the helm, don’t be surprised if the Tide is still standing at the season’s end.

5) Could Kentucky shock the world

In a word, yes! The Cats are beating teams they don’t usually beat, and they are doing it in dominating fashion. Don’t look now, but a meeting with the number one Georgia Bulldogs is looming up ahead. I am not saying they will beat Georgia because I don’t know if anybody can as of right now, but this will be an exciting matchup. Don’t sleep on the Cats!

6) This looks like it will be a season to remember

Who could have imagined that entering the second week of October, the top 4 would not include Alabama? But it would consist of Iowa and Cincinnati! Kentucky is ranked at number 11 and has a real shot at getting something special done. Clemson is dead in the water and will struggle even to win a bad ACC Conference. This season has been full of surprises nobody saw coming, and I think more will arrive before it’s all said and done.
