Top Stories From Week 6 Of College Football

On Saturday we saw a lot of ranked match ups.  As usual this led to much excitement around the nation.  So let’s take a look at 2centsworthofsports.com’s top 3 stories from this week of intriguing games.

NC State Shocks #3 Florida State

The FSU Seminoles have been playing like National Champions in the past 5 weeks.  Something happened on Saturday that might cost them a chance to compete for the National Crown.  The un ranked NC State Wolfpack defeated the mighty Noles in Raleigh by a score of 17-16.  The Noles did however come out very strong in the first half.  The Noles defense stopped the Wolfpack for the first two quarters and went into halftime with a 16-0 lead.  The Wolfpack out scroed the Noles in the third quarter 3-0.  The real action took place in the final quarter when NC State’s QB Mike Glennon threw 2 TD passes to lead his team to victory.  This was an unlikely outcome that will shake up the ACC and the National Championship picture.

#10 UF Gators Defeat #4 LSU Tigers

Florida’s defense was the key for their victory on Saturday.  The Gators grinded out the entire game against the LSU Tigers and won the game 14-6.  The Gators went into half time however trailing 6-0 but turned things around in the second half.  The offensive star of the game was Gators running back Mike Gillislee.  Gillislee ran for a 12 yard TD in the third quarter and also in the fourth quarter.  This win was a big statement for the Gators to make.  They might just be a better team than everyone thought.

#6 South Carolina Pummels #5 Georgia

The South Carolina Gamecocks came out strong jumping to a 21-0 lead in the first quarter.  The Georgia Bulldogs never had a chance in this game.  The Game Cocks looked really good in this one.  The final score was South Carolina 35, UGA 7.  South Carolina QB Connor Shaw was the star in this game.  Shaw was 6 for 10 passing with 162 yards and 2 TD passes, Shaw also had a rushing TD.  This was not expected to be a one sided game but it was reality on Saturday Night.

On Saturday #5 West Virginia hosted #25 Baylor, it would end up being the most entertaining game of the weekend.  Both teams combined for 133 points, West Virginia won the game 70-63.  Defense was almost all but gone from the stadium.  Both teams had players with video game level stats.  The most notable was WV QB Geno Smith.   Smith 45 for 51 passing with 656 yards passing, 31 yards rushing,  threw for 8 touchdowns and had no interceptions.  Smith set the school record for passing yards and touchdowns in a single game.  Smith was already a contender for the Heisman Trophy but cemented his position even further on this day.  The West Virginia Mountaineers are ready to compete for the National Championship this year.  They are so good that the only team that could stop them would be themselves.  Keep an eye out for Geno Smith and WVU this season.
