NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Week 6, after this week the real contenders are apparent.
October 3, 2011, 10:32 AM
Some pretty good games all week (and a lot of bad conference matchups too). Almost everyone will have at least one or two hard games and the bowl picture can start forming up. The games:

1 LSU vs 17 Florida - UF QB status critical to keep score even a little close
2 Alabama vs Vanderbilt
3 Oklahoma RRR with 11 Texas game of the week
5 Boise State at Fresno State Friday not-so-special. Fresno has gone down hill.
6 Oklahoma State vs Kansas
7 Stanford vs Colorado
8 Clemson vs Boston College
9 Oregon vs California Thursday night fun.
10 Arkansas vs 15 Auburn - Last minute teams go mano to mano
12 Michigan at Northwestern
13 Georgia Tech vs Maryland-Unis won't help the Terps against the triple option...
14 Nebraska vs The Ohio State -Will players coming back turn the tide for tOSU?
16 West Virginia vs Connecticut
18 South Carolina vs Kentucky
19 Illinois at Indiana
20 Kansas State vs Missouri - Good matchup
21 Virginia Tech vs Miami (FL) - Big game for bowl rights, no BCS bowl shot for loser
22 Arizona State at Utah - May be a good matchup if Utah QB is healthy
23 Florida State at Wake Forest - WFU is 3-1
24 Texas A&M at Texas Tech - may be a very good game in Lubbock
25 Baylor vs Iowa State - Huge numbers for RGIII are possible here.

Notables:
Houston vs ECU - conf USA elimination game, Houston still undefeated
PSU vs Iowa - big game for bowl rights
Air Force at ND - ND didn't do too well last time it faced an option team
UGA at TENN - BSU fans keeping fingers crossed here.
