Week 6 brings us five days of college football and 10 teams looking to become bowl eligible with their sixth win.

Tuesday Oct 5

Troy at Middle Tennessee

Although the rest of the season will be played, this is the Sun Belt title game.

Wednesday Oct 6


To be honest I don’t have much of an opinion on either team nor do I have much to say about this game. It’s on, it’s Wednesday night, if you are home, watch it.

Thursday Oct 7

Nebraska at Kansas State

Now this is more like it. Big XII north power game. Both are undefeated but let's be honest, neither team has really played anyone up to now. Their signature wins are over Pac 10 teams that are still a mystery as to what they will do this season.

Friday Oct 8

Connecticut at Rutgers

Big East game that will kick off conference play.

Saturday Oct 9

Syracuse at South Florida

Continuing the Big East play into early Saturday. Surprisingly these teams are both 3-1.

Boston College at North Carolina State

NC State is looking to rebound from their come from behind loss to Virginia Tech while Boston College looks to salvage the first half of the season after dropping a couple of devastating losses.

Indiana at Ohio State

Indiana will look to Tandon Doss to have another big game as the Hoosiers look for an upset over Ohio State. The Buckeyes are wondering exactly how close to 100% is Pryor.

Temple at Northern Illinois

I called this one as my MAC title game. I stand by it so don’t be surprised if you see this one again at the end of the season.

Michigan State at Michigan

Both teams are 5-0 and are playing on the legs of some young players. Michigan State runs on a couple of running backs, sophomore Baker and freshman Bell. Michigan is led by do everything dual threat sophomore quarterback Robinson.

Arkansas at Texas A&M

Hey Southwest Conference fans, this one is for you. Others that should watch, those that like offense. Arkansas took last years game pretty easily.

Western Kentucky at FIU

Pillow fight of the season will help determine who finishes the season without a win. Ok so there is a slim chance for wins other places but I doubt it.

Alabama at South Carolina

It is two ranked SEC teams but for some reason I don’t feel it will be close. Oh that’s right because it’s Alabama and South Carolina.

Army at Tulane

The Army bowl watch had to take a step back with a loss but look for a little forward movement this week.

Oregon State at Arizona

This is that time of year when Oregon State comes off a couple early season losses and turns it on for the rest of the way. 2-2 could quickly turn into 9-3 by the seasons end. Arizona won’t be easy though.

San Diego State at BYU

If I told you one was 3-1 and the other 1-4 you would normally be able to pick which was which. Truth is SDSU is 3-1 and looking strong while 1-4 BYU, well I don’t know what to make of them.

Utah at Iowa State

Utah is one of the undefeated teams from outside the BCS conferences and an improved Iowa State could help their case to make a BCS bowl at years end should they go undefeated all the way.

Colorado at Missouri

Colorado will try to use the momentum of beating Georgia but Missouri is better than UGA this season.

LSU at Florida

Another match up of ranked SEC teams that just doesn’t seem like the luster that should be on it is there. Maybe the embarrassing loss to Alabama by Florida and the narrow escape from Tennessee by LSU has something to do with it.

Auburn at Kentucky

Two words, Cam Newton. Watch, be impressed.

USC at Stanford

In case you have been living under a rock, a couple years ago Stanford upset USC as a 41 point underdog. Now Stanford is a double digit favorite and ranked while USC is not.

New Mexico at New Mexico State

Pillow fight number two. Someone has to win.

Florida State at Miami

Did you know that it has been since 2006 that these two played when both were ranked?

Hawaii at Fresno State

While everyone is focusing on undefeated Boise State and Nevada in the WAC, I wouldn’t count either of these teams out just yet either.
