Undefeated - Week 6

Halfway through the regular season and we are still among the nations no loss teams.  A Clemson team sitting at 6-0 with 3 conference wins was not on anyone’s radar in August.  We can only hope that we continue to perform to our ability and come out with wins.

 

Fifteen entered and only thirteen remain after week 6.  The class of undefeated teams is getting smaller as the weeks roll on.  Last week I predicted that Texas, Texas Tech, and Kansas St. would fall from this elite list.  Well, 2 out of 3, not too bad.  Texas proved that they were just too young, and Oklahoma was just too good.  Texas Tech held it closer than I thought, but still were not enough to beat the Aggies.  Kansas St., like some of you predicted, was able to withstand Missouri (who is not the team they should be).  The rest of the unbeaten were able to roll through their games with little to no problems.  All unbeaten teams are now ranked in the top 25.  10 of the 13 play on the road this weekend.  The schedule for week 7 for the perfect thirteen is listed below;

 

(1)   LSU @ Tennessee

(2)   Alabama @ Ole Miss

(3)   Oklahoma @ Kansas

(4)   Wisconsin vs. Indiana

(5)   Boise St. @ Colorado St.

(6)   Oklahoma St. @ Texas

(7)   Stanford @ Washington St.

(8)   Clemson @ Maryland

(11) Michigan @ (23) Michigan St.

(12) Georgia Tech @ Virginia

(16) Illinois vs. Ohio St.

(17) Kansas St. @ Texas Tech

(25) Houston - Bye

 

Since no undefeated teams play each other, they could all remain unbeaten into week 8.  However, there are some games here that could pose problems to those playing them.  I’m going to go DEEP out onto a limb and say Michigan St. could upset Michigan.  It all depends on which Denard Robinson shows up.  I also think Texas Tech could defeat Kansas St. at home.  I know, Kansas St. is getting that Cinderella story tag, but I think they have to come down to Earth sometime.  I’m most interested to see, however, the Stanford game at Washington St.  Stanford has only played one team with a winning record (Duke), and Washington St. has been playing decent football.  Don’t get me wrong, I think Stanford will win, but I think it’s the biggest test for them thus far.

 

Who, if anyone, do you think will fall from this list this week?
