CFB Week 6 Weekly Roundup- Rankings Shuffle After Interesting Week
Week 6 of college football had an interesting slate of games lined up, and many yielded some rather unexpected results. While Alabama fans were pacing until the last play of the game watching the Tide take on Texas A&M, take a look at how some of the other teams in the SEC and around the country fared in their respective games.
Welcome to the Tide 100.9 Weekly Roundup, where we highlight some of the best storylines of the week in college football that you may have missed.
TCU (17) at Kansas (19) - The Site of College Gameday Doesn’t Disappoint
Kansas (aka “America’s team”) took on the Horned Frogs of TCU in what was one of the most anticipated matchups of the week. It was another battle of the quarterbacks in this one, as Max Duggen for TCU put up almost 400 yards of offense and 4 total touchdowns. It looked like trouble for Kansas early as starting quarterback Jalon Daniels was knocked out in the first half with a shoulder injury, but backup Jason Bean filled in just fine with 262 yards passing and 4 touchdowns. This one came down to the wire, but TCU pulled off the victory and continues to surpass expectations this season.
Final- TCU 38, Kansas 31
Tennessee (8) at LSU (25) - Vols Continue to Prove They're Legit This Year
The Tennessee Volunteers looked solid once again in their Saturday matchup against the LSU Tigers. Hendon Hooker continues to build his Heisman campaign with another strong performance, throwing for two touchdown passes leading to a blowout victory on the road. The Vols take on Alabama next week at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, the site of ESPN’s College Gameday, in what will be one of the most hyped-up meetings in recent history.
Final- Tennessee 40, LSU 13
Arkansas at Mississippi State (23) - Bama Fatigue Hits Razorbacks Hard
Not only is it hard to bounce back from a loss to Alabama in the prior week, but it’s even harder to do it without your starting quarterback. KJ Jefferson was out for Arkansas in this game. The Razorbacks were only able to put up 17 points against the Bulldogs this week. Combine offensive woes with a struggling secondary against a solid SEC quarterback in Will Rogers, and you get a recipe for a blowout. Rogers put up 395 passing yards and 3 touchdowns in a solid win for Mississippi State.
Final- Arkansas 17, Mississippi State 40
Ohio State (3) at Michigan State - Buckeyes Look Like the Best Team in the Nation
Another week, another strong performance from Ohio State and their impressive offense. Quarterback and presumed Heisman favorite C.J. Stroud threw for 6 touchdowns on the day, and wide receivers Emeka Egbuka and Marvin Harrison Jr. each had over 100+ yards receiving. Not only that, but the revamped defense is only looking stronger week after week, allowing just around 15 points per game. This team looks strong, and definitely has the makeup to go all the way this season.
Final- Ohio State 49, Michigan State 20
