After Week 6, I still stand with Tua leading the race for the Heisman, followed by Jalen Hurts, Justin Fields, and then Johnathan Taylor. Now, onto the games!!
While Week 6 has come and gone, some games surprised me on Saturday while others did not. I’m going to start with the game on Friday night where #18 UCF was handed their 2nd loss this season by unranked Cincinnati. The Black Knights QB, Dillon Gabriel, threw 3 interceptions and had 2 fumbles. Now moving on to Saturday, we are gonna start in Ann Arbor where the #19 Michigan Wolverines took on the #14 Iowa Hawkeyes. Offensively, it was a struggle for Michigan; but defensively it was great! Michigan’s defense had a total of 4 turnovers and held the Hawkeyes to 1 total rushing yard in the 10-3 victory.
The first game that surprised me was unranked Stanford defeating #15 Washington at home. I was slightly surprised that #21 Oklahoma St. lost on the road to unranked Texas Tech 45-35. I was also impressed with #10 Florida’s 24-13 win in “The Swamp” over #7 Auburn.
Now I’m going to focus on who the best teams in each Conference are, starting with the Big Ten. Ohio State is easily the best team in the Big Ten, followed closely by Wisconsin; but we will see who’s better when those two teams square off on October 26th. For the Big 12, Texas is the best team, but we will find out if they are better than Oklahoma next week. With the ACC, Clemson is easily the best team, with Virginia being a very distant 2nd. The best team in the SEC is… wait for it… Alabama. Although, I am interested to see how they do against LSU and Georgia. When it comes to the Pac-12, Oregon is the best team.
