NCAA Football Week 6 Report – Game of the Week

  • Game of the Week: #12 Oklahoma (34) vs. #3 Texas (30)

I asked if the Longhorns were for real in last week’s report. It turns out they aren’t. This was a close game throughout. The difference was Quinn Ewers had three turnovers and Oklahoma had zero turnovers.

Dillon Gabriel had 285 passing yards and 1 TD, plus added 113 rushing yards and 1 TD.

The Sooners jumped to #5 in the new AP top 25 rankings, while Texas dropped to #9. Oklahoma remain undefeated at 6-0 (3-0 in Big 12) and will have a shot at making the College Football Playoffs.

Here are the other big results we wanted to include in our NCAA football Week 6 report:

  • Arizona (41) vs. #9 USC (43): USC needed triple overtime to defeat the Wildcats. It was a poor game through the air from Caleb Williams, as he went 14/25 for 219 yards and 1 TD.
  • #10 Notre Dame (20) vs. #25 Louisville (33): The Fighting Irish were -6.5 favorites on the road, but the Cardinals pulled off the upset after scoring 26 points in the second half.
  • #13 Washington State (17) vs. UCLA (25): The Cougars were leading at halftime (10-9), but the offense struggled all game and the Bruins won at home as a small favorite.
  • Georgia Tech (23) vs. #17 Miami (20): Miami were undefeated and should have won this game, as they could have kneeled. Instead, they fumbled and GT scored a late TD to pull off the upset.
  • #23 LSU (49) vs. #21 Missouri (39): LSU was in another shootout this week, but this time they won. Mizzou were undefeated, but are now sitting with one loss on the season.
  • #24 Fresno State (19) vs. Wyoming (24): Wyoming upset Fresno State and snapped a 14-game win streak for the Bulldogs. The Cowboys are now 5-1 (2-0 in the Mountain West).
  • #20 Kentucky (13) vs. #1 Georgia (51): Are the Bulldogs back? Carson Beck went 28/35 for 389 yards, 4 TDs and 1 INT. Kentucky suffered their first loss and showed they aren’t ready yet.
  • #11 Alabama (26) vs. Texas A&M (20): Jermaine Burton had a monster game, as he hauled in nine receptions for 197 yards and 2 TDs. Bama have now won four consecutive games.
  • Kansas State (21) vs. Oklahoma State (29): The Wildcats were double-digit favorites, but they were unable to defeat Oklahoma State, a team that lost to South Alabama earlier this season.

NCAA Football Week 6 Report – Betting Trends

Here are the betting trends we wanted to include in our NCAA football Week 6 report:

  • Top 25 vs. Unranked: The top 25 had a losing week against unranked opponents. Top 25 teams went 8-3 (5-6 ATS) against unranked opponents. It was the first time three ranked opponents lost to unranked opponents this season in a single week, which was surprising.
  • ACC Bounces Back: The ACC went 4-0 (4-0 ATS) against non-conference opponents. Two of the teams (Louisville and Boston College) were underdogs and won straight-up.
  • Undefeated Power Five Teams: Last week, there were 16 undefeated teams in the power five conferences, but that’s down to 11 (Louisville, Florida State, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Michigan, Penn State, Ohio State, USC, Oregon, Washington and Georgia).
  • NCAAF ATS Trends: We’re down to five teams that are undefeated against the spread (UNLV, Rutgers, Oregon, Oklahoma and Penn State). Only two teams have failed to cover a spread all season (Vanderbiilt and Illinois). Who will be the last team to remain undefeated ATS?
  • NCAAF Over/Under Trends: There are now just three teams that have gone over in every game this season (LSU, Boston College and Vanderbilt). The only team to go under in every game is Utah. Arizona and Ohio both went over the game total in Week 6.

What to Watch for Next Week in College Football

Now we’ll feature the top games for next week in our NCAA football Week 6 report.

  • #8 Oregon vs. #7 Washington: A Pac-12 battle between two undefeated teams is the top game on the Week 7 schedule. Can the Huskies win at home? They’re currently -3 favorites.
  • #10 USC vs. #21 Notre Dame: USC survived triple overtime against Arizona in Week 6. They’re on the road this week and Notre Dame will look to give the Trojans their first loss.
  • #25 Miami vs. #12 North Carolina: This game should have featured two undefeated teams, but Miami will look to play spoiler. UNC can’t overlook the Hurricanes in what should be a shootout.
  • #18 UCLA vs. #15 Oregon State: Another Pac-12 match-up is featured on our NCAA football Week 6 report, as the Bruins will take on the Beavers in a ranked matchup.
