Four Observations From Week Six Of College Football
Another weekend of college football is behind us, and that means it’s time to breakdown everything that happened on Saturday.
Here are my four biggest observations from all of the action.
1) Oklahoma got exposed.
There were some serious reasons for concern after Oklahoma allowed Baylor to hang around. I wasn’t overly shocked when they lost to Iowa State. It was surprising, but not shocking for anybody who watched their last couple games. There is now a good chance the Big 12 doesn’t have a team in the playoff.
2) Georgia might actually challenge Alabama.
I’ve been saying all year that the SEC is garbage, and nobody would ever challenge Alabama. Well, I might have been a bit too quick with my assumption. Georgia’s defense is very good and could give the Tide some problems if they meet in the SEC championship.
3) Michigan is in big trouble.
Michigan had to go to backup quarterback John O’Korn for the start last night against Michigan State, and it wasn’t pretty. The guy threw three interceptions and couldn’t get the offense started. The Wolverines will get destroyed by Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin if what we saw against MSU is the new normal.
4) Washington State is humming towards the playoff.
Mike Leach has his boys at WSU rolling. They had no problem knocking off Oregon last night, and very much look ready to win the PAC-12. I’d keep an eye on the Cougars as we go down the stretch.
5) Wisconsin could go undefeated in the regular season.
The Badgers rolled into Nebraska and walked out with a convincing win against the Huskers under the lights. Their toughest game on the schedule is Michigan. I’m still a bit worried about that game, but feel a lot better after watching the pathetic performance from the Wolverines against MSU. There is a very good chance this team is 12-0 when they arrive for the Big Ten championship.
