Through five weeks, we thought we saw the wildest of what college football had to offer, but little did we know Week 6 was going to be crazy.
Another week is in the books and what that means for college football is that we are one step closer to having the Big Ten and Pac-12 join the fun. Don’t forget the rest of the conferences like the Mountain West, too.
Week 5 of the season was wild and caused some drama in the rankings and the playoff race, but Week 6 took the cake. It was obvious from the noon slate that it would be a crazy weekend of college football. The early games didn’t disappoint and the late games followed suit.
It all started with Florida getting upset by Texas A&M in College Station. No one expected the Aggies to pull that one out, but they shocked the Gators and beat Florida with no time remaining, kicking the field goal to come out on top 41-38 just a week after getting absolutely embarrassed by Alabama.
That wasn’t even the craziest upset in the SEC as Missouri hosted LSU (locations moved because of Hurricane Delta) and pulled off an upset despite Myles Brennan’s career day.
And then Texas fell via upset in the Red River Shootout with Oklahoma. The Sooners had lost two straight and looked like a team on the decline with a redshirt freshman quarterback battling turnover issues, but they toppled the Longhorns yet again.
Georgia smacked Tennessee around behind the arm of a former walk-on quarterback, BYU barely held on against a rejuvenated UTSA team, Iowa State made a statement against Texas Tech and Auburn beat Arkansas in the final seconds in what should have likely been a loss for the Tigers but they won via a controversial call.
Alabama found itself in a shootout with Ole Miss but ultimately held on despite surrendering 48 points, Clemson dominated No. 7 Miami and Notre Dame shut the door on Florida State.
Let’s dive into the power rankings for Week 7.
