College Football Week 6 Predictions

Week 5 produced a bunch of drama with Georgia, Notre Dame, & Ole Miss finding a way to get victories. Week 6 features 4 ranked versus ranked tilts and plenty of games flying under the radar so hold on tight as we peel another layer off of the College Football regular season.

 

Marquee Matchups

 

#3 Texas vs. #12 Oklahoma: The Red River showdown pits two undefeated long-time foes as the best marquee matchup on Saturday. Texas walloped Kansas last week albeit the Jayhawks were missing their stud QB Jalon Daniels. Texas RB Jonathan Brooks has been on a tear over the last 3 games and will indeed need to be a difference maker in this one. The Sooners defense does look improved in 2023 which makes sense giving the background of 2nd year head coach Brent Venables.

This week will get a good feel on just how much better Oklahoma is on both sides of the ball. Texas should get the job done but let’s not forget the first 3 quarters in the Wyoming game. The Longhorns offensive line returning so many starters fuel this run/pass offense & Texas’s defense seem to have turned the corner as well.

 

The Pick: Texas -5 and the over set at 60.5

 

 

#1 Georgia vs. #20 Kentucky: The Bulldogs needed a comeback late 4th quarter drive to slither by a very mediocre Auburn squad. This College Football podcaster doesn’t believe the look ahead trap scenario applies given Kentucky wasn’t even ranked last week. The troubling item beyond finding someone else other than TE Brock Bowers on offense is the run defense. Auburn rushed for over 200 yards last week and in walks the Wildcats rush offense & RB Ray Davis putting up over 300 yards on the ground versus Florida. Kentucky’s foundation is built on running the-you-know-what-out-of-the-ball and playing sound defense. One positive note from last week was the development of Georgia QB Carson Beck.

 

The Pick: Georgia wins outright but I do like Kentucky +14.5.

 

Under The Radar

 

#10 Notre Dame vs. #25 Louisville: The Cardinals get a huge opportunity to get what would be a big win in front of their home crowd. The luck of the Irish was with Notre Dame last week unlike their loss to Ohio State. This College Football junkie still wonders how QB Sam Harman fits into this offensive system but willing to give it a little more time. Notre Dame has the better overall team as long as it can finish more drives on offense the Irish should get the “W”.

 

The Pick: Notre Dame -6.5

 

#21 Missouri vs. #23 LSU: Mizzou is 5-0 heading into their toughest test on paper besides say Kansas State. LSU should be motivated after losing a score-fest to Ole Miss. LSU’s defense is in shambles whereas Missouri’s defense is allowing just 75 yards on the ground and well over 100 less yards per game. This one should be very entertaining with both teams sporting some of the best QB/WR combo’s in the country stat wise anyway. This is a pick’em game but something tells me LSU coach Brian Kelly will have his troops ready for battle.

The Pick: LSU -4  

 

Saturday Upset Special

 

Washington State as a +3.5 road dog upsets UCLA.

 

Hardcore Barnburners

 

#11 Alabama vs. Texas A&M: A key contest in the SEC West as the point spread continues to drop. A&M’s secondary had a tough time with Miami’s passing game. That said Bama’s seems to be only able to hit on big pass plays and struggle on the move the chains type passing. Jimbo generally has his boys ready versus Saban so why would this not be a close one?

 

The Pick: Alabama -1.0

 

UCF vs. Kansas: Kansas got blown off the field by Texas and don’t want a repeat of last year’s losing streak. Central Florida somehow allowed Baylor to score 29 unanswered points last week and lost the previous week as well. Something’s got to give with two desperate teams looking to right the ship. Sounds like Kansas QB Jalon Daniels will miss this game.

 

The Pick: Kansas +2

 

Against The Spread

 

Kentucky +14.5 versus Georgia

 

Rutgers +13 versus Wisconsin

 

Wyoming +6 versus #24 Fresno State

 

#13 Washington +3.5 versus UCLA
