Week 6 Football: What to watch

A look at games that might pique your interest

Not a lot of great games on tap for this week, especially not compared to last week, but there are at least a couple traditional rivalry games (Texas-Oklahoma, Florida State-Miami) to draw some interest, plus that Notre Dame-Virginia Tech game should be worth watching. The SEC definitely takes the prize for the slate that looks the most watchable this week.

Several ACC teams (Duke, UNC-CH, Virginia) are on byes this week, so that depletes the conference lineup a bit, although the absence of UNC-CH from the TV screen this week will be a much welcomed addition by subtraction for the eyeballs of the entire college football world (plus the 17 UNC-CH fans that actually follow their football team).

By the way, what ever happened to interesting Thursday night games? It seems like there haven’t been any good ones so far this year.

(Note: F/+ (a combination of FEI and S&P+ rankings) and Sagarin rankings listed for each team. For D1-AA/FCS teams, only the Sagarin ranking is listed.)
