College Football Week 6 Recap

This week was one of the best weeks yet with a huge upsets and many surprises. For the first time this season the 1. Ranked team has been dethroned As The South Carolina Gamecocks defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide in a crucial game in South Carolina

Every team in the top 25 Won Except:
1. Alabama to 19. South Carolina
9. Arizona to Unranked Oregon State (Called that one!)
13. Miami to 23. Florida State (Predicted this as well)
14. Florida to 12. LSU
18. Michigan to 17. Michigan State

Top 3 Performances:
1. Nebraska QB Taylor Martinez: We might have a newer version of Denard Robinson and a new Heisman Candidate with this guy. He passed for 128 yards and a Touchdown  more importantly ran for 241 yards and 4 Touchdowns to lead the Cornhuskers to another win
2. Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weeden: He passed for 351 Yards and 5 Touchdowns in a wipeout over Lousiana-Lafayette 54-28
3. Wisconsin Running Backs John Clay and James White: The running backs combined for over 225 Yards and 5 Touchdowns in a Win against Rival Minnesota 41-23

Top Disappointments:
1. Michigan QB Denard Robinson: In his first test against a actually good team, Robinson struggled throwing 3 interceptions and only 1 Touchdown against 17. Michigan State
2. The Alabama Crimson Tide: Their undefeated streak of 19 games and  #1 ranking came to an end this weekend with a loss to 19. South Carolina Gamecocks
3. Florida QB John Brantley: Im sorry Florida Gators fan because you guys do not have a collegiate level Quarterback playing for your top ranked team. Brantley continues to struggle week in week out, and this week lead the team to another loss passing for only 154 Yards and no touchdowns. He also threw an interception

Game of the Week:
There were many exciting games like Michigan vs Michigan State, LSU vs Florida, Stanford vs USC, Oregon State vs Arizona, and Auburn vs Kentucky, but this weeks Game of the Week goes to Alabama vs South Carolina.
In the game this week, the Gamecocks lead by Quarterback Stephen Garcia defeated the Crimson Tide 35-21 in Columbia. The main reason i believe the Crimson Tide lost was because the Gamecocks did a great job of pressuring QB Greg McElroy and stopping the powerful duel threat run game of Trent Richardson and Heisman Winner Mark Ingram. The two combined for only 63 Rush Yards. For the other team Garcia passed for 300 Yards and 3 Touchdowns and Running-back Marcus Lattimore ran for 93 Yards and 3 Touchdowns.

Top games for next week:
1. 1. Ohio State vs 18. Wisconsin: Watch out for an upset in Madison Folks because James White and John Clay are gonna run over and upset the new #1 Ohio State
2. 7. Auburn vs 12. Arkansas- The Razorbacks came close to a big upset 2 weeks ago, will Mallet lead them to a victory over undefeated Auburn
3. 15. Iowa vs Michigan: Can the Wolverines come back after a tough loss and knock off the Hawkeyes?
