The college football season enters week 7 and is just about at the halfway point for the season. The season is changing with every week as the rankings are turned upside down on a regular basis. The reason for that …
Georgia has steamrolled its way to a 5-0 straight-up (2-3 against the spread) start behind an offense that is ranked eighth in the nation in scoring with an average of 48.2 points a game. The Bulldogs are a perfect 3-0 SU in conference play with dominating victories over Missouri, Vanderbilt, and Tennessee in which they outscored their opponents by a combined 140-67. The total has gone OVER in all five games.
LSU is a perfect 5-0 straight-up (2-3 against the spread) on the year, but fell another spot in the latest AP poll after an uninspired 38-22 victory over a heavily outmatched Towson team that came into this game as 43-point underdogs on the road. The Tigers also failed to cover the week before as 18-point favorites on the road against Auburn in a tight 12-10 victory.
The college football consensus report for the week covers a long list of college football games and usually it is the lower tiered games that should get a second look. But in Week 6 of the college football season it is a high profile game that is getting the looks. It is not the big SEC games featuring LSU vs Florida and Georgia vs South Carolina, but a game that features the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
The Miami Hurricanes are off an incredible game filled with emotion.
NFC West rivals that are hoping to get into the playoffs this year are going to battle it out in a crucial tilt at the Edward Jones Dome for Thursday Night Football betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams face the Arizona Cardinals.

The college football season is in full swing and the games are getting better and better. In Week 5 of the college football season one of the best games was easily the scoring fest between the Baylor Bears and the West Virginia Mountaineers. This back-and-forth game featured plenty of scoring as both offenses scored with ease and put up record numbers.
West Virginia won the game and quarterback Geno Smith burst onto the Heisman Trophy scene with is remarkable day. His numbers were awe inspiring and this performance will be hard to duplicate in the future. While the performance was awesome, it is important to not get caught up in the score because in reality defenses win ballgames.
