College Football: Huge Conference Games Highlight Week 6
We’re getting to the point of the season that makes or breaks the team each and every way. With a full serving of great match-ups and a handful of burning questions, let’s dig in to week six.
First off, let’s start off with USC: Can Ed Orgeron be an effective interim coach during his tenure? I think he could probably do a better job than the quickly-executed Lane Kiffin, though I don’t see him turning around the program and making them a contender within a few weeks.
Is Maryland a legit sleeper team? I think so. The manically-clad Terps are worth the respect, but I’m not sure they can topple over the high-flying Florida State Seminoles in Tallahassee. IF Maryland can get past Florida State with either a win or a tough, strong showing, they shouldn’t be overlooked.
Can Baylor stay the course with all the hype? You may have noticed that Baylor has gotten some big nods from the higher-ups, climbing up the polls after some big wins over little programs, but I don’t think that the performance we’ve seen will correlate with a supposed Big 12 Championship run. I mean, don’t get me wrong, Baylor’s a good team, I just think the team is a little overrated. They’ll get their wins, but no way they dismantle the Big 12 and capture a conference title.
Key Games of the Week:
I think the best game of the will be stationed in Tallahassee as stated earlier. #25 Maryland takes on #8 Florida State. Other than that, we have some other great ones including #5 Stanford hosting #15 Washington, #11 Oklahoma hosting TCU, #4 Ohio State traveling to #16 Northwestern, West Virginia traveling to Waco to take on #17 Baylor (this game could be another upset, watch out), and of course #20 Texas Tech heading up to Lawrence to take on Kansas.
Happy watching this weekend.
