The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / College Football Week 6 2021 Predictions

College Football Week 6 2021 Predictions

Publish Date: 10/08/2021
Fact checked by: Mike Goodpaster

In Week 5, most of the Marque Matchups didn’t play out to be all that close, but that didn’t stop the bloodshed inside the Top-25. Week 6 features four ranked versus ranked games and a slew of meaningful scraps flying under the radar. 

 

Marquee Matchups

#3 Iowa vs. #4 Penn State: We have ourselves a great Big Ten matchup with both teams able to add another big win on the resume. Considering how mediocre (to put it nicely) the West side of this conference is, the Nittany Lions probably need this win a tad more. After all, Penn State still has Ohio State, Michigan, and Sparty left on their schedule to advance to the championship game. The experience factor at quarterback favors Penn State; however, the Hawkeyes have tweaked their offense a bit, showing the ability to throw the ball more. On top of that, RB Tyler Goodson is the real deal when he gets to the second level showing a knack for making something out of nothing. On the other side of the sidelines, Penn State has a playmaker at WR in Jahan Dotson. With an over/under set at 41.5, this podcaster sides with Las Vegas in thinking we’re going to get an old fashion hardnosed rumble. Even in a close loss, Auburn was able to run the ball on Penn State, so combined with the game at Kinnick Stadium, it is enough for me to nod to Iowa.    

The Pick: Iowa 19 Penn State 16

 

#2 Georgia vs. #18 Auburn: The Bulldogs bull-dogged an excellent Arkansas squad last week and walk away looking like the best team in the country. But let’s not get ahead of the game too much and remember Georgia does have a habit of dropping a game they shouldn’t over the years. If ever there was a game for Tigers QB Bo Nix to live up to his big name on campus stature because of his pops, this is the moment. We should note that Auburn did get a good but not great win last week in a normally tough place to play at LSU. The Bulldogs defense and their rushing attack are the main reason they look the part as the best team in the nation, barring Alabama, of course. Bringing up Georgia’s QB’s as this College Football junkie did last week seems less vital whether it’s JT Daniels or Stetson Bennett. The two reasons not to pick a blowout for the Bulldogs, one a possible letdown performance and this contest being played on the road.   

The Pick: Georgia 30 Auburn 16

 

 

Under The Radar

#6 Oklahoma vs. #21 Texas: The Red-River-Rivalry is flying under the radar outside of Texas but make no mistake about it, the Cotton Bowl will be rocking per usual. The Longhorns dropped a game to a much improved Arkansas club but have gotten some things out on the offensive end since. The Sooners have been just getting by in 4 out of their five wins this season. This can only equate to two scenarios: They find a 5-gear and stomp Texas, or they finally get caught living on the edge and get beat by their bitter rival. The Longhorns will rely on heavy doses of RB Bijan Robinson to keep the Sooners offense limited. 

The Pick: Texas 33 Oklahoma 30 

 

Saturday Upset Special 

Memphis will go on the road at Tulsa and be victorious as a 3.5-point dog. 

However, #13 Arkansas has what it takes to upset #17 Ole Miss as a 5.5-point underdog. 

 

Hardcore Barnburners

 

#13 Arkansas vs. #17 Ole Miss: Both teams are coming off their first “L’s” of the season meaning they will be scratching and clawing to get back on the good foot. 

 

#22 Arizona State vs. Stanford: ASU got a nice upset on the road at UCLA, and the Cardinals got an even bigger win over Oregon last week. The perfect ingredients for a tremendous PAC-12 matchup no matter what Las Vegas claims as to the spread. 

 

Against The Spread

#22 Arizona State should be able to beat Stanford, but it won’t be by 13-points

 

Please take it to the window

#1 Alabama will roll tide and cover as an 18-point favorite to Texas A&M. 

 

Quick Hits Recap

 

-The Bulldogs made it back-to-back shutouts on defense and have only given up 23 points thru 5 games. Georgia held Arkansas to 162 total yards, heading into Week 4, the Hogs were averaging 480 yards per game. 

 

-Cincinnati beat Notre Dame 24-13 scoring their first victory over an AP Top-10 opponent since 2006.

 

-Texas RB Bijan Robinson ran for a career-high 216 yards and 2 TD’s in a 32-27 victory over TCU. 

 

-Penn State held Indiana to zero points for the first time in 21 years. 

 

-Alabama tied Central Florida’s record of scoring at least 30 points in consecutive games. It stands deadlocked at 31 in a row. 

 

-Kentucky upended #10 Florida 20-13, stomping the brakes on a 16 in a row losing streak to the Gators.

 

-Ohio State QB CJ Stroud threw for five touchdowns in a 52-13 blowout of Rutgers.

 

-Pitt QB Kenny Pickett had his 3rd straight game with at least four passing touchdowns, suitable for the longest such string in the ACC since Russell Wilson.
