Week 6 was an exciting weekend in football where there were many upsets and ranked teams that also dominated.

The offenses were out to shine all weekend, with the exception of the Penn State game. Sorry guys, it was a grind-it-out type of game like the old days.

Here are three teams whose stock rose after Week 6.



How does the No. 1-ranked team have its stock rise higher?

Well, that is a good question. It comes with solidifying why you are the currently undisputed No. 1-ranked team in the country.

LSU did this by beating Florida 41-11.

LSU had an offense that moved the ball at will against the strong physical Florida team. The Tigers defense was also very stifling and Florida, then No. 11, was made to look like it was on a lower tier than LSU.


Boise State

Boise State does come from a weak conference but this is a real-deal team.

Kellen Moore, the Heisman Trophy candidate, runs the offense perfectly. He made Fresno's defense look like it was from the local area high school.

Boise State scored 57 points while only allowing seven. How could its stock not rise after that?



Oklahoma beat a very talented and athletic Texas team, and it did so easily.

When you go into a rivalry game there is a lot of emotion and intensity that comes with it. You have to bring it or you are lost.

Oklahoma was fully invested in the game on Saturday. It had its offense moving the ball quickly and dominating Texas.

When the game was over and the score read 55-17, there was no more dispute in Dallas.

Oklahoma made its national title hopes much stronger after that display.
