College Football 2013 – Recapping Week 6

Deion Sanders College Football Sports

In what could have been the biggest shake up in the Top 15 to date, week 6 gave us thrills but no upsets.

college football, scores#3 Stanford survived, #5 Georgia escaped, #6 Ohio State hung on, #10 UCLA barely remained undefeated, #11 LSU needed a potent offense to put away Mississippi State, #12 Oklahoma was sluggish against TCU, and #13 South Carolina needed every inch of yardage to put away Kentucky.

The top 3 teams ( Alabama, Oregon, and Clemson ) all took care of business but the rankings could have been turned upside down had OSU, Stanford, and Georgia all lost. We all know that there is going to be an upset week coming soon – it happens every year!

Because every team won that was supposed to win over the weekend, let’s focus on the great individual performances from week 6. There were Heisman like numbers put up all over the country.

Let’s start with Alabama QB Dr. AJ McCarron as he surgically carved up Georgia State by going 15-16 for 166 yards and 4 TD’s. Oregon QB Marcus Mariota goes 16-27, 355 yards and 5 TD’s. Teddy Bridgewater, QB from Louisville, throws for 348 yards and 2 TD’s. LSU QB Zach Mettenberger goes 25-29, 340 yards, and 2 TD’s. LSU wide out and return specialist Odell Beckham torches Mississippi State for 290 all purpose yards.

Ball State QB Keith Wenning goes 23-41, 346 yards, and 2 TD’s. Penn State freshman QB Christian Hackenberg is 30-55 with 340 yards and 3 TD’s. Baker Mayfield, Texas Tech QB, goes 33-51 for 368 yards. Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah totes the rock 20 times for 225 yards and 2 scores. Speaking of running backs, Boston College RB Andre Williams carries the ball 30 times for 263 yards and 5 touchdowns! Miami QB Stephen Morris throws 17-22 for 324 yards and 3 TD’s. Clemson Heisman hopeful, QB Tajh Boyd goes off versus the ‘Cuse by going 20-27 with 455 yards and 5 TD’s. North Texas QB Derek Thompson is 29-42 with 326 yards and 2 TD’s. Ole Miss QB Bo Wallaca is 25-48, 336 yards, and 2 TD’s. Fresno State QB Derek Carr ( brother of David Carr ) is only 37-48 with 419 yards and 5 TD’s!! Cal QB Jared Goff goes 32-58, 489 yards, and 2 TD’s. Connor Halliday, QB from Washington St. throws 41-67 for 521 yards and 3 TD’s. Vandy QB Austin Carta-Samuels goes 29-41, 338 yards, and 2 TD’s. ASU QB Taylor Kelly is 33-47 for 362 yards and 3 Td passes. Baylor QB Bryce Petty is 17-25, 347 yards and 2 TD’s. ECU QB Shane Carden throws 57 times and completes 43 of them for 365 yards and 1 TD. Lastly, Washington QB Keith Price is 33-48 for 350 yards and 2 TD tosses. As great as some of the games were yesterday, these individual performances were off the chart!

college football, heisman trophy

The Heisman Trophy, one of the highest individual awards in the American college football, has been awarded 78 times since its creation in 1935, including 77 individual winners and one two-time winner. (The 2005 award was declared vacant subsequent to it having been awarded, so only 76 individuals are officially recognized as having won the award.)

The trophy is given annually to the most outstanding college football player in the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and is awarded by the Heisman Trust, successors of the awards from the Downtown Athletic Club at an annual ceremony at the Nokia Theatre in New York City.

College Football 2013….What have we learned so far??

College Football Highlights

With 2 weeks now in the books, some interesting things are starting to unfold in the world of college football. We knew going into the season that it College Football Week Twocould be one of the most memorable seasons of all time. I think we are on schedule for the most controversial BCS National Championship game of all time.

Alabama controls the SEC right now and a win over A&M on Saturday will give them a leg up on the field. All that stands in their way after that is a heated rivalry game with LSU and then the SEC Championship game. Oregon is headed for a showdown with Stanford to probably have a shot at the Tide. Clemson could run the table by beating FSU and South Carolina and stake their claim to be in the big game. Louisville will go undefeated and want a piece of someone. The Cardinal’s play a weak schedule and will be 25++point favorites for the rest of the year. Ohio State has only 1 competitive game all year ( at Michigan in the last game of the year ) and will be screaming for respect and a shot in the title game. Both Louisville and Ohio State play such a weak schedule and in the end, it will cost them a shot at the title.

So, what are the most intriguing match-ups for the BCS Championship right now? Alabama vs. Oregon would give us flash and dash versus strength and power. Two contrasting styles. A rookie coach vs. the most polished coach in the sport today. How about Alabama against Stanford? This would be a dog fight. A 20-17 defensive struggle. What if Oregon played Clemson for it all? The scoreboard would explode – fireworks being shot off every 20 seconds! In the end we could have a 55-53 game. What if it were Texas A&M and Oregon? How about Georgia versus FSU? What if the title game featured Michigan and LSU? So many scenarios, so many games left to play…and it is only week 2!!

Game of the year… PART 1. The hype has begun for this week’s first game of the year. Alabama goes to Texas A&M for a revenge game. Last year Johnny Football burst into the national spotlight by pulling off the improbable upset over the Tide. Coach Saban has been drooling for this game since then and with a week off last week, you can bet the Crimson Tide will ROLL into Aggie land with fire in their eyes!

All the Talking Heads thought the Texas Longhorns might be on their way back into the national scene. I guess BYU forgot to read the press clippings and put an old fashion butt whipping on them! Welcome back to mediocrity Texas!

Cudos to the ACC. They are shaping up to be the second best conference in the land. Clemson upsets Georgia to kick off the year and The “U” trips Florida on Saturday. Clemson only has FSU left to play in conference ( and South Carolina in the season ending game ) and should destroy everyone else. Miami has just FSU and Va. Tech remaining in conference play. FSU has the toughest path to the conference title by having to play Miami and Clemson ( and the Gators ). Looks like a banner year for the ACC! They may have a shot at the BCS title game as well as several other big bowl games.

Here is an interesting scenario. Michigan and Ohio State should both be undefeated going into the season ending ( 11/30 ) clash. Most likely, they will meet agian the following week ( 12/7 ) in the Big 10 Championship game!

This is hard to believe. In the SEC East, Tennessee and Missouri are undefeated.  South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia all have 1 loss! Think that is going to last much longer?

For all you Notre Dame haters out there, I guess you won’t have to worry about them playing for the title this year after losing to the Wolverines on Saturday night. The funny thing is that they may be a better team this year and will probably end up lose 2 games this season!

Several weeks ago I said that Odell Beckham of LSU has a shot at the Heisman Trophy this year. Before it is given to Braxton ( I get hurt every year ) Miller, or Johnny ( show me the money ) Manziel, or Teddy ( I deserve better than playing against Division 3 schools ) Bridgewater, or Tajh ( I hope I don’t have to face Jadeveon Clowney ) Boyd,  take a look at what Odell has done so far. I think you may just change your vote! Tyrann who??????????
