College Football 2011 - Week 6.....

Are we looking at a definite powerhouse game with Alabama-LSU in a month, or will one of them stumble on the way to this year's "Game of the Century"? Not a great week for ranked match-ups, but we do have the "Red River Rivalry" to headline the week. Enjoy.

Week 6 games (Home team in CAPS)

STANFORD (#7) over Colorado - Andrew Luck has done nothing to dispel his Heisman hype, nor the fact that he is head and shoulders above all else in being next year's first pick in the NFL draft. The Cardinal roll over the Buffaloes.
VIRGINIA TECH (#21) over Miami - What are the chances the Hokies lose a second straight conference home game in Blacksburg? Personally, I think almost next to impossible, but Virginia Tech needs to watch out that they don't make this about "revenge" and just take care of business or that second loss will be a reality.
CLEMSON (#8) over Boston College - Will BC be the bump in the road that will derail Tiger fans just as they are starting to believe in how good this Clemson team is? Well, I went against them the last two weeks and they showed me they are "for real". I get on the bandwagon and wait for that showdown later with Georgia Tech.
ARKANSAS (#10) over Auburn (#15) - Auburn's defense has been pretty bad this year, but came up big against South Carolina last week (with the help of benched Gamecock QB, Stephen Garcia). This week they get a very good offense in Arkansas. The Hogs roll up a bunch of points and win this SEC match-up.
LSU (#1) over Florida (#17) - Florida loses it quarterback in John Brantley and now faces the LSU defense in Baton Rouge. Yikes. Gator defense must be outstanding for even a chance, but will come up short on the road.
Oklahoma (#3) over Texas (#11) (in Dallas) - Texas is quietly undefeated and highly ranked after last year's blimp, but not good enough to beat the Sooners. Expect a tough game, but the Oklahoma talent will be too much for the Longhorns.

Week 5: 4-2
2011 season: 19-11
