Week 6 College Football Picks 2011

by Jonathan Pou on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Our week 6 college football picks 2011 schedule takes us into a few games between ranked teams and although there are only two matchups that fit the bill this weekend, both have plenty of discussion points to get us started. The SEC is providing another great matchup this weekend. On Saturday at 3:30pm ET on CBS, the No.1 LSU Tigers (5-0, 2-0 SEC) will be hosting the No.17 Florida Gators (4-1, 2-1 SEC), who will be looking to get back on track after being dismantled by No.2 Alabama. NCAA football picks experts are waiting for the college football betting odds to be release for this game, but something tells me that the Tigers are going to be listed as double-digit favorites at home.

The most outrageous detail of the Gators’ game against the Crimson Tide was that Florida opened up the game with a long touchdown play by Chris Rainey. Unfortunately, the Gators lost the game by a score of 38-10, which means that that after taking a 7-point lead early, Alabama outscored Florida 38-3 for the rest of the game and that is not going to get it done in their week 6 college football picks showdown against Les Miles and company. Getting spanked like that on your home field has to make us think of what LSU is going to do to them. Keep checking back with throughout the week, as those college football betting odds will be released by mid-week. The other week 6 college football odds matchup between two ranked teams is brought to us by the Big 12. The No.11 Texas Longhorns (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) will host the No.3 Oklahoma Sooners (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) at 12:00pm ET on CBS in their annual red river rivalry shootout, but I don’t think that this one will be close either.

Each team comes in off of a dominating performance fueled by takeaways. Oklahoma turned four turnovers, including three second-quarter interceptions by Tony Jefferson, into 28 points and throttled Ball State 62-6. Texas forced three first-quarter turnovers on its way to a 34-0 halftime lead, and then cruised to a 37-14 win at previously undefeated Iowa State. While Oklahoma, which won last year’s game 28-20, was the preseason No. 1, the Longhorns started the season unranked for the first time since Mack Brown’s first season as coach in 1998. Another win for the Horns and Texas would likely find itself ranked higher than the Sooners, but they must first overcome the odds and pull off the upset as 10-point underdogs at, which will be no easy task.
