Week 6 is coming out bigger and badder. We've got talented teams all across every conference showing more skill than ever before whether it be a rivalry game, or the first time these opponents have played in years. The Top 4 this week were chosen by popularity and that were mentioned the most by different sports news talks shows. This should be a very good match up and as we know well- that's what college football's all about.
At 12:00pm (Eastern) Boston College plays Virginia Tech in Blacksburg for the Hokies' homecoming game. The last time these two teams met was in the ACC Championship last year in Tampa, FL. Virginia Tech has had a solid season but started out their season opener with a loss to (3) Alabama in Atlanta, GA. This should be a good homecoming game for the Hokies.
At 12:00pm (Eastern) the Auburn Tigers are playing the Arkansas Razorbacks today. This is definately a big South Eastern Conference game to watch as Arkansas battles the new coaching staff of Auburn. Two other big teams the Razorbacks have played were Georgia who is capable of being a Top 20 team, and Alabama who is currently ranked third in the BCS rankings.
At 3:30pm (Eastern) the Ole Miss Rebels will play at home today against (3) Alabama Crimson Tide. The Rebels last year were the only team to defeat Florida. This year their quarterback, Jevon Snead is a Heisman Trophy candidate leading the team with only one loss. Alabama has shown progressing compeditiveness this year against talented teams. Leading the Tide is their talent Junior quarterback, Greg McElroy. This is only his first year starting and has led his team to their well-deserved rank at number three in the BCS. What a match up.
At 8:00pm (Eastern) the LSU Tigers will play the Florida Gators in Death Valley. This is the game of the week for college football fans across the nation. The last time the Tigers played Florida at home two years ago, they won 28-24. LSU and Florida are known for having the roudiest fans in the country. LSU and Florida's attendence combined two years ago in Death Valley was recorded at 92,921 which was also considered one of the biggest games of that weekend and set a record for attendence at home for LSU. This was then broken when Alabama and LSU played eachother with a recorded 100,000+ fans from both sides. Florida and LSU both have extraordinary talent. It is still not known whether Gators' QB Tim Tebow will play this game coming after his injury last weekend when he was knocked unconscious in their game against kentucky. It's going to be a close game.
