College football odds, picks, predictions for Week 6, 2020: Proven model backing Florida, Notre Dame

Mike Leach’s Air Raid offense overwhelmed LSU in an upset two weeks ago, but fell flat in Mississippi State’s 21-14 loss to Arkansas last week. The Week 6 college football odds from William Hill list the Bulldogs as two-point underdogs at Kentucky as quarterback K.J. Costello and the offense try to get back in gear. Elsewhere in the SEC, No. 21 Texas A&M will try to get back on track after being blown out by Alabama last week, but the Aggies have another top-tier opponent this week in No. 4 Florida.

College football rankings: AP Top 25 poll reactions, takeaways, analysis after Week 5

While the very top of the latest AP football poll remained largely unchanged, there was still plenty of movement after an eventful Week 5. 

Eight teams in the Top 25 lost on Saturday, four of which fell at home to unranked teams: No. 9 Texas, No. 11 UCF, No. 16 Mississippi State and No. 24 Pittsburgh. According to ESPN, that’s tied for the second-most losses by ranked teams to unranked opponents at home in AP poll history.

Here’s everything you need to know about the latest AP poll released on Oct. 4. 

Top two teams remain the same

There were no changes to the top two in the latest AP poll. Clemson and Alabama were both victorious in Week 5. In fact, the only change to the top six was Georgia and Florida switching places at Nos. 3-4. Notre Dame and Ohio State remain at No. 5 and No. 6,

SEC college football power rankings led by Alabama, Georgia, Florida


Alabama crushed Texas A&M (again). Once relevant, this series sits firmly in the Crimson Tide’s corner.

Ole Miss landed the first win of the Lane Kiffin era by topping Kentucky in overtime. Already, you can see how the Rebels’ offense will cause trouble in the SEC.

And in the biggest game of the week, Georgia beat Auburn to solidify its place in the College Football Playoff race.

The second weekend of the SEC season was a revealing one. What’s clear: Alabama, Florida and Georgia are the teams to beat. After two games, here’s an updated look at the conference power rankings.

1. Alabama (Last week: No. 1)

The Crimson Tide don’t budge from atop the list after a 52-24 win against Texas A&M paced by quarterback Mac Jones, who had three touchdown passes of at least 60 yards. Aided by an explosive receiver corps, Jones has gone from a

College Football Rankings: B/R’s Top 25 After Week 5 | Bleacher Report

Gerald Herbert/Associated Press

Next week’s slate could be exceptional, and it’s arguably the best group of games college football has offered in 2020.

Get ready for intriguing games in every time slot, starting with the ACC’s marquee matchup of the season. There’s also the Red River Rivalry, which still has a ton of intrigue even though it lost some luster over the past couple of weekends.

Let’s take a look at what’s on tap for Week 6.


No. 8 Miami at No. 1 Clemson (7:30 p.m. ET, ABC)

The Hurricanes and Turnover Chains take to prime time for the third time in four weeks, but this will be unlike any game they’ve played in front of a national television audience this year. Is Miami just a nice early-season story or for real? We’re all about to see.

The Clemson offense can put all kinds of pressure on teams, and this

Just 15 and 16, brothers earn college degrees quickly, cheaply — and in unusual fashion

On the surface, the academic achievements of Kamal and Shashi Yerra — 15- and 16-year-old brothers from Fort Mill, S.C., who soon will have two bachelor’s degrees and three master’s degrees between them — come off as extraordinary.

Sorry, we might have blown through that too fast. Let’s slow it down and spell it out a little more:

Shashi Yerra earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration at age 15 in June 2019, on the same day his younger sibling was awarded an identical degree, from the same school, at age 13. Since then, Shashi has been working toward his master’s degree, while Kamal has thrown himself into additional studies, earning a master’s in information systems security in August; on Monday, he will graduate yet again, this time with an MBA.

How rare is something like this?

“Kamal,” claimed their father, Ravi Yerra, in the email he sent

College Football Playoff expansion proposal is denied

When the Pac-12 CEO group decided to have a college football season, set to begin on Nov. 6/7, a lot of the chatter quickly turned to whether or not the conference could potentially have a team make the College Football Playoff.

While the schedule has yet to be released, it’s expected that the Pac-12 will play six conference games and then a conference title game, giving the conference champion a total of seven games. Now how those seven games would compare to somebody from the Big Ten, SEC, ACC or Big 12, all of whom will have at least 10 games played, remains to be seen.

That’s why Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott pitched the idea to the college football playoff committee about expanding the current format from four teams to eight for this upcoming season. 

Unfortunately that idea was shot down and the CFP will stay at four teams for

College Football Playoff shelves Pac-12 proposal for eight-team expansion

The expansion of the College Football Playoff could happen in the future, it just won’t happen this season.

The CFP management committee met on Wednesday, where during the meeting Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott proposed the CFP expand to eight teams starting this season. 

The idea was not approved by the committee.

According to Heather Dinich of ESPN, league commissioners review the CFP annually, but Wednesday was the first time it had been made public that one of the Power 5 commissioners had proposed an eight-team format. 

“They decided that doing that now would be such a significant change, and come with so many challenges, especially given the timing with the season already underway, that they concluded that the best outcome would be to make no changes in the format,” CFP executive director Bill Hancock told ESPN. “They will continue to discuss the future, which is just good, responsible business practice,
