College Football Rankings And Picks: Week 6

Wow, what a wild weekend – especially for us fans of the Miami Hurricanes. I am so disappointed they could not pull out a comeback victory against Virginia Tech. What a let down. Anyways, we are on to a new week, here we go:

Many contributors to Hefty Headlines were invited to participate in our Week 6 poll. For the first time ever, we had six people participate:

Hefty Headlines Top 25 Poll : Week 6

The Alabama Crimson Tide maintain their #1 status – however – Georgia, Ohio State, Clemson, and LSU also received a first place vote. Clemson fell all the way to #4, being passed by Georgia and Ohio State. Auburn fell out of the top ten after losing to Florida this past weekend.

Voting Trends

Week 6 Picks

If The CFP Happened Today…

  • LSU – beat Texas and has not stumbled against lesser teams. Ohio State – best win was over #25 Michigan State, but the Buckeyes look impressive. Florida – beat Auburn who beat A&M and Oregon. Wisconsin – Destroyed Michigan and is steamrolling everyone they play with Big 10 football.
  • There are legit 8 Teams that deserve a real playoff shot with “0” or “1” quality loss: Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Clemson, Oklahoma, Auburn, Florida
  • SEC will beat itself up. Wouldn’t be surprised if Bama or Georgia lost and still got in.
  • Maybe we should have a raffle for the 4 spots in the CFP. That would be more exciting.

Heisman Picks

  • Will a runningback win the Heisman this year? Chuba Hubbard and Jonathan Taylor are legit.
  • All aboard the Chase Young Train! Come on people, let’s be progressive and stop suppressing the best player in the country just because he is an unblock-able force on…”DEFENSE”
  • Red River Rivalry will showcase Jalen as the frontrunner
  • Tua with 23 TDs and no picks…will need to keep doing it in their big games like Burrow has for LSU.
  • It’s Jalen’s to lose
  • I think Burrow may throw 100 TDs this year.

Previous Weeks

  • Pre-Season: Trevor Lawrence – QB – Clemson
  • Week 1: Jalen Hurts – QB – Oklahoma
  • Week 2: Joe Burrow – QB – LSU
  • Week 3: Jalen Hurts – QB – Oklahoma AND Joe Burrow – QB – LSU
  • Week 4: Joe Burrow – QB – LSU
  • Week 5: Jalen Hurts – QB – Oklahoma

Final Week Three Thoughts

  • Buzz: Miami is such a disappointment this season. That was such a wild game, and for them to throw away that amazing comeback was heartbreaking. DeeJay Dallas is a stud.
  • Tommy Nuggets: Shaping up to be The Ohio State v. The SEC. Big 12 will beat itself up, Pac-12 is poo-poo, Clemson plays in the FCS.
  • Klyde Frog: Michigan is really boring to watch.
  • Stormin Mormin’: I read an article saying BYU has a 6% chance at making a NY6 bowl even after losing to Toledo. Hope restored.
  • Bix: Seasons over, uw sucks.
  • Chamby: Penn State 👀

Wrap Up

Two HUGE games next week. Oklahoma vs Texas and Florida vs LSU. Should set us up for some movement in our polls, especially our top ten.
