Week 6 recap

The shocker of the week for week 6 in my humble opinion was not Vanderbilt over Auburn or Hawaii over Fresno State. It is the fact that Notre Dame is 4-1 and NO WHERE close to the top 25! Has the media finally quit drinking the Blue and Gold koolaid?? Where's Beano Cook when the Irish need him?? Where's Lou Holtz? That's right. Lou is now a doctor. I would not even send my worst enemy to Holtz for a check-up. Here is the week 6 recap.

Oklahoma continues to dominate by stomping on the Baylor Bears and continuing to prove why they are #1. Alabama held off a mad rush by Kentucky to remain #2 in the AP Poll. #2 in the Coaches goes to Missouri who destroyed Nebraska for their first win in Lincoln in 30+ years and they should continue to play with consistency like they have all year, especially on offense.

Upset alert: Colorado over Texas!! I fell for that too, but Mack Brown and company did not and Texas won 38-14 to stay in the top 5.

The game of the week was a classic as Auburn went into Vandy Stadium and came out with a loss by 1 point, a missed extra point. Vanderbilt is starting to believe that they can win. Will they be able to keep it up???

Fresno State and South Florida founds ways to lose to unranked opponents at home. Kansas came mighty close to losing to an unraked on the road.

The Hawaii team that went to Fresno Saturday night was not the Colt Brennan-June Jones Hawaii team. Who is their coach and their quarterback now? Despite not many people knowing that, Hawaii found a way to make the national news for something besides blowout losses to Top 10 teams.

South Florida wasn't supposed to lose to Pittsburgh, especially with Pittsburgh losing to Bowling Green first game. Pitt has turned it around and have started to look like a Big East contender and could shock someone if they were to make it to a BCS game.

Kansas was down to Iowa State in Ames 20-0 at halftime and came back and won 35-33. This would've been Gene Chizik's first signature win had the Cyclones held on.

Texas Tech routs Kansas State. I was a Texas Tech doubter, not anymore.

Second year in a row, Miami-Florida State was a battle of two non-top 25 teams with FSU holding off a late Miami rally to win 41-39. Week 7 preview coming up soon.
