Big teams that could be in big danger in Week 6 of college football.

Some of the Top 10 teams in college football look to be shaken up come this Saturday with plenty of action that is sure to have its fair share of twists.

Six games will feature match ups that include ranked teams including three of those games having teams ranked between Nos. 5-11.

Consider this the first shakeup week of the young college football season with the bottom of the Top 25 trending upward and the top half looking to hold their ground.

These are the schools that may be in the biggest danger of losing ground come Week 6.


No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 South Carolina

This SEC East showdown looks to give the winner the inside advantage for the division title.

No. 5 Georgia will be slim favorites over No. 6 South Carolina, but both teams understand there is much more than just a win on the line.

A possible shakeup that has Georgia in danger of losing their No. 5 spot.


No. 2 Oregon

Just what is the possibility that No. 23 Washington takes down No. 2 Oregon?

Coming off an impressive win over the now No. 18 Stanford, Washington looks to build on that success by bringing a hard game into Oregon.

Stanford was dropped 10 spots after Washington beat them 17-13.

Will the same happen to Oregon?

Probably not, but just to be safe, Oregon better be ready for a formidable opponent.


No. 10 Florida and No. 4 LSU

No. 10 Florida will look to match up against No. 4 LSU, a game that looks to be in LSU's favor but not by much.

LSU has struggled the past two weeks whereas the Florida Gators have been trending upward.

Odds makers have LSU winning by three points which means the game is up for grabs if Florida can play some tight defense.

LSU will play a stronger game on the understanding that No. Florida has a chance to take them down.


No. 8 West Virginia

No. 8 West Virginia will look to visit No. 11 Texas in a matchup that could be a highly offensive affair. 

West Virginia is coming off a 70-63 win over Baylor last week and will need to be better defensively if they look to hold onto their No. 8 spot. 

Texas may have a good chance in this game if they are able to put some big points on the board and force West Virgina to fight back.

Can West Virgina survive back-to-back weeks if they have to put up more than 40 points to win?
