It seemed like only yesterday, UCF proclaimed themselves as the true national champions,
after going undefeated in 2017. One thing about college football that holds true, things
can quickly change if one is not paying attention. For UCF, 2019 has not been the season
they hoped; meanwhile for teams like Florida, this season could have not been scripted any
better so far.
Here is what we learned in Week 6:
Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor vaulted ahead of the Heisman race, with his impressive five-touchdown performance against Kent State.
UCF's playoff chances and credibility went down the drain following their upset loss to
LSU's offense and defense each played a complete game, in their dominant victory over Jordan Love's Utah State team.
If anything can be said about Michigan State, their defense was good enough to beat Ohio State. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about their offense
Though Kansas came out strong to begin the game, yet it took one penalty to break to door
open for Oklahoma's offense, who would go to win in their usual dominant fashion.
Texas Tech took a 20-0 lead in the first half and never looked back as they pulled out
the upset victory over Oklahoma State.
It was a year in the making, as Sam Ehlinger and his Texas Longhorns were able to exact
their revenge over West Virginia.
In a battle between two undefeated SEC teams, Florida quarterback Kyle Trask overcame an
early injury scare to guide his team past Auburn.
In one of the sloppiest games played this season, Michigan's defense stepped in a big way, as they got past Iowa.
After being down 29-7 at the half, Miami battled back to tie the game in the fourth, only
to see their efforts ruined by a late Virginia Tech touchdown.
SMU's first week in the top 25 was a crazy one. Down by 21 in Tulsa, they scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to tie the game. Both teams proceeded to play three overtime rounds, where the SMU prevailed.
