The week 6 college football schedule begins Thursday night and includes quite a few great conference rivalry games that will definitely shape the first BCS standings. Thursday night we get our first game of the week, with a Nebraska vs. Kansas State match-up that has two undefeated Big 12 teams facing off. Both schools are 4-0 at this point, with Nebraska currently ranked No. 7 in the latest AP Top 25.
The biggest rivalry game of the weekend has to be the LSU vs. Florida game, where two of the SEC powerhouses face off with a lot on the line once again. LSU is trying to prove that they are for real this year, and Florida has to recover quickly from their conference loss to Alabama last week. Both schools know that they need to win this game, but LSU is now the one that has the best chance to make a huge impact on the week 7 college football rankings.
The Michigan vs. Michigan State game on Saturday is also extremely important to both schools, as they come into their rivalry 5-0 in 2010. The Michigan State Spartans may have their hands full trying to stop the offensive attack that the Michigan Wolverines have going for them, but this isn’t a game where they are going to back down from anything. The winner here could be the main challenger to Ohio State for the rest of 2010.
Some of the other notable games this weekend include Miami vs. Florida State, Clemson vs. North Carolina, and Arkansas vs. Texas A&M. All of these games should be great ones, and it might be important not to sleep on the Alabama vs. South Carolina game as well. Alabama has proven these past two weeks that they can play against the best of the SEC, but South Carolina knows that this is their big chance to take a jump in the college football rankings.
We are just two weeks from the first 2010 BCS standings, and that definitely means that this weekend is going to be extremely important in how those will look. There are a host of easy games for the top teams, including Oregon playing a struggling Washington State team and Boise State playing a Toledo team that they should blow out easily. Things get started on Thursday night through, so college football fans can tune to ESPN to see if this Nebraska team is a real contender, or if Kansas State is thinking upset.
