Week 6 College Predictions

Here is what happened last week and what you can expect to happen in Week 6 of college football.


Week five of college football is in the past, and this week featured some of the most entertaining games we’ve seen all season. Let’s take a look at some of the best games from this Saturday’s slate.\

Lets recap-

#5 Clemson 30 @ #10 NC State 20
It finally looks like D.J. Uiagalelei is finding his rhythm in year two as Clemson’s starting quarterback. Clemson really looks like a legit playoff contender this year, after it physically controlled NC State for a full four quarters. Uiagalelei went 21 for 30 for 209 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 73 yards and two touchdowns with a long run of 38 yards. NC State’s quarterback Devin Leary had a decent day through the air as well, going 28 for 47 for 245 yards with a touchdown and interception. Clemson’s defense looks really good, and as long as they don’t lose two games, they have a decent shot at the playoffs at this level of play.

#7 Kentucky 19 @ #14 Ole miss 22
This was really a great game. The score was 19-19 with 50 seconds left, and Kentucky quarterback Will Levis drops back to pass and throws a fade which was caught for a touchdown. There’s a penalty though, and the touchdown no longer counts. On the very next play, Will Levis gets the ball stripped in the pocket and Ole Miss falls on the ball, and now the game over is over. Both teams played very hard, and used everything they had to try to win for their team. Will Levis went 18/24 for 220 yards and two touchdowns. He also had two fumbles, both recovered by Ole miss in the final three minutes. Ole Miss quarterback Jaxson Dart went 15/29 for 213 yards and an interception. Quinshon Jenkins also had a good day, with a long rush of 48 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries for 106 yards. The biggest surprise in this game was the Ole Miss defense which really limited Kentucky offensively. Overall, both teams played good games defensively and limited each other’s offenses. But in the end, Kentucky made one two many mistakes and that cost them the game.

#1 Georgia 26 @ Missouri 22
Well, I don’t think anyone saw this coming. Coming off a bad game vs Kent State, the Bulldogs were expected to bounce back big going up against arguably the worst team in the SEC. But instead, they didn’t have a lead until the middle of the fourth quarter. Brock Bowers was invisible until the fourth quarter, they couldn’t run the ball, and Stetson Bennett III was missing easy throws one after another. At one point, the Dawgs were down 16-3, and this is when the college football world started tuning in. The Dawgs were on upset alert until the clock hit zeros, and that’s concerning against Missouri. It was an extremely great effort by the Tigers who played well above their talent level for the majority of the game. If Georgia doesn’t get it together, it is going to be a one or two loss regular season. If Mizzou had a better offense, Georgia would have lost and that just can’t happen when you are the #1 team in the country.

#22 Wake Forest 31 @ #23 FSU 21
Undisciplined. That’s what FSU was at home against Wake Forest, gathering up 11 penalties for 96 yards and losing a fumble. They just kept backing themselves up and they couldn’t recover. Both offenses and Defenses were decent, but FSU just kept shooting themselves in the foot. Quarterback Jordan Travis went 23/35 for 281 yards and all three of FSU’s touchdowns. WR Mycah Pittman had a nice day as well, grabbing five catches for 85 yards and two touchdowns. On the other side, star Wake Forest quarterback went 22/34 for 234 yards and two touchdowns. RB Justice Ellison had a great game as well gaining 114 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. This was a pretty even game, Wake Forest was just more disciplined, and it showed when the clock hit zeros.

Week 6 predictions-

#8 Tennessee @ #25 LSU
Hendon Hooker and the Vols first road test will be a good one if history repeats because this has been one of the most weird showdowns in SEC history. A bad Vols secondary will allow some chunk plays to an interesting LSU offense, and the Vols incredible offense will go crazy on LSU’s solid defense. LSU stays around for the first half, but Tennessee uses a big third quarter to win easily.

My prediction – Tennessee 41 @ LSU 27

#17 TCU @ #19 Kansas
I don’t know who would’ve ever predicted that both of these teams would be undefeated going into this matchup, yet here we are. Both have offenses that are clicking on all cylinders, and both are coming off big wins. I just think that this already dream season for Kansas takes a step back down to earth against a very solid TCU team. This will be a game late until the fourth, where TCU overpowers the Jayhawks in the end.

My prediction – TCU 34 @ Kansas 31

Missouri @ Florida
Florida’s offense is on fire as of lately, and their vulnerable defense gets their best player back in, Linebacker Ventrell Miller. Missouri was oh so close to beating #1 Georgia last week, and I think the back to back fourth quarter losses are going to affect them. Anthony Richardson will carve up the Missouri defense for a couple of huge plays and help Florida to victory. Though I doubt a blowout, and I think Missouri hangs around the whole game, but their offense just can’t score enough points.

My prediction – Missouri 20 @ Florida 30

FSU @ #14 NC State
Both of these teams are coming off their first losses of the season, and both want and need this victory. I’m predicting the top 15 upset because I think Florida St has enough offense to just outscore NC State, if and only they play disciplined. If FSU plays like they did last week they have no chance.

My prediction – FSU 28 @ NC State 25
