College Football Week Six Top 25: Florida Maintains Top Spot Ahead of LSU Game
By Ryan of The Sportmeisters
Here we go—a matchup of two top five teams highlights the upcoming week! But who else takes this week’s top spots?
1. Florida (Last Week: 1)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at No. 4 LSU
Gator Nation holds their collective breath as they wait word on their savior, QB Tim Tebow, and whether or not he’ll play this weekend.
2. Texas (Last Week: 2)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Colorado
Longhorn fans hold their breath too, because a UF loss coupled with a Texas win means they will occupy the top spot.
3. Alabama (Last Week: 3)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at No. 15 Ole Miss
The Crimson Tide have won 16 of 18 against the Rebels and sport the nation's No. 2 defense.
4. LSU (Last Week: 4)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. No. 1 Florida
LSU took down Georgia last weekend but has to prepare for two very different quarterbacks this weekend.
5. USC (Last Week: 5)
Next Week: Idle
USC gets a week off to let their players heal up but has to be aware of a much tougher Pac-10 than they imagined.
6. Ohio State (Last Week: 6)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Wisconsin
This game will give one of these two teams an open shot at the Big Ten title.
7. TCU (Last Week: 7)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at Air Force
Okay, personal gripe here, but AFN (Armed Forces Network) is showing this game over most likely the FSU game. Boo.
8. Virginia Tech (Last Week: 8)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Boston College
The Hokies are arguably the only ACC team worth its weight in any merit, though it still has to prove it can win outside the ACC.
9. Boise State (Last Week: 10)
Next Week: Idle
With a look at their schedule, Boise State has a legitimate shot at running the table but will need help from other teams if a national title shot is in the cards.
10. Miami (Last Week: 17)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Florida A&M
3-1 after a rough stretch is a good omen for the Hurricanes, who are quickly exhibiting dominance in 2009.
11. Georgia Tech (Last Week: 11)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at Florida State
Miami’s big win prevents Georgia Tech from jumping into the top 10, and even a huge win against FSU doesn’t hold much weight anymore.
12. Oklahoma State (Last Week: 13)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at Texas A&M
The Cowboys now might have to face the rest of the season without top WR Dez Bryant, who has been deemed ineligible by the NCAA.
13. Penn State (Last Week: 14)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Eastern Illinois
The Nittany Lions are still holding their own and crushed Illinois last week to prove it.
14. Auburn (Last Week: NR)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at Arkansas
We welcome the Tigers—Gene Chizik’s squad has won more games than in his two previous years combined.
15. Ole Miss (Last Week: 15)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. No. 3 Alabama
Ole Miss has to prevent itself from falling deeper down the SEC ranks and needs a big game against Alabama this weekend.
16. Kansas (Last Week: 16)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Iowa State
Kansas has had such an easy schedule thus far, one wonders if Baby Mangino could have coached them to their perfect record.
17. BYU (Last Week: 18)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at UNLV
As FSU keeps slipping, BYU’s upset loss makes it more challenging to show themselves as legitimate.
18. Oklahoma (Last Week: 9)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Baylor
Despite the 2-2 record, Oklahoma is still in the running for the Big 12 title, but it’s a crowded field.
19. Cincinnati (Last Week: 20)
Next Week: Idle
Cincinnati being in the bottom half of the polls shows how preseason polls can’t be legitimate at all.
20. Nebraska (Last Week: 21)
Next Game: Oct. 8 vs. No. 25 Missouri
A Thursday night game after a long week could keep the Cornhuskers from being another Thursday night upset special.
21. Oregon (Last Week: 23)
Next Game: Oct. 10 at UCLA
The Ducks keep moving back into contention, and now there is talk of reinstating RB LeGarrette Blount; that’s not coincidental at all (right...).
22. Iowa (Last Week: 23)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Michigan
Despite not having a ranking, Michigan is still a formidable opponent, and Iowa will have to play a complete game to earn the victory.
23. South Carolina (Last Week: 24)
Next Game: Oct. 10 vs. Kentucky
South Carolina avoided the letdown game last week but now have a target on their backs in the crowded SEC.
24. South Florida (Last Week: NR)
Next Week: Idle
The Bulls join the top 25 and get a week off to celebrate.
25. Missouri (Last Week: 23)
Next Game: Oct. 8 at No. 20 Nebraska
A top 25 team will lose this weekend, I guarantee it!
