Last Word on College Football

Top 25 Week 6

Let’s take a look at the Last Word on College Football Top 25 for Week 6. From upsets to record-breaking games, the world of College Football continues to keep us coming back for more weekend after weekend.

For the first time since 1981, the Georgia Bulldogs have now beaten three straight SEC opponents by at least 21 points after a win over Vanderbilt on Saturday. As a 31-point underdog, Iowa State made history in their 38-31 upset over No. 3 Oklahoma. South Carolina made a clean break as one of the least penalized teams in the SEC in their 48-22 defeat of the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Florida Gators at least made history in their loss to LSU by breaking Michigan’s record of scoring games with 366. And we all learned what the rules are for a simultaneous catch in that same game (possession is awarded to the offense, in case you missed it).

Looking Ahead

If we’ve learned one thing from this week, though, it’s that there are no quiet weeks in college football. It’s always high drama on Saturdays in the fall.
