Official Rant Sports College Football Top 25 for Week 6
Official Rant Sports Top 25 for Week 6
Every week we bring you the Official Rant Sports College Football Top 25 based on the expert opinion of our experienced writers
If you like offense, then Week 5 was simply amazing.
Of last week's Top 25, 12 scored 30 or more points this week, while 5 scored 40 or more.
The Alabama Crimson Tide was once again a unamious pick for the top spot, but the Rant Sports College Football Team was mixed in its reviews for the remaining 24 spots.
So, where did your team end up...
Here is the full Rant Sports College Football Top 25 for Week 6!
No. 1 - Alabama Crimson Tide
Alabama actually trailed for the first time so far this season against the Rebels at 7-6 and were outscored in the second half by that same 7-6 margin.
Despite the not-so-Bama-like win, the Rant Sports team still voted the Crimson Tide a unanimous No. 1.
The Tide will remain unbeaten as it is off this week.
No. 2 - Oregon Ducks
Oregon had a bit of a slow start against the Cougars, but that did not hurts its power in the polls as the Rant College Football Crew universally ranked the Duck 2nd or 3rd.
Next up for the Ducks will be a home game against the Washington Huskies.
No. 3 - Florida State Seminoles
The 'Noles were pretty much a 3rd or 4th pick my most writers except for Justine Hendricks who dropped FSU to 8th.
The Seminoles will hit the road this week with its No. 3 ranking as they travel to Raleigh, North Carolina, to face the North Carolina State Wolfpack in an ACC Football Atlantic Division battle. It will be FSU's first conference road game of the 2012 season.
No. 4 - Georgia Bulldogs
But the Dawgs let the Volunteers back into the game in the final minutes and actually had to kick a field goal to tie at the half.
In the end, Georgia held on for a 51-44 victory between the hedges and moved up a spot this week to No. 4.
The Bulldogs will carry their No. 3 ranking on the road this week with a huge Top-10 match up against the South Carolina Gamecocks in Columbia, South Carolina.
No. 5 - LSU Tigers
That is pretty much the concensus of the LSU Tigers performance last night in a 38-22 victory over the Towson State Tigers.
Despite the pathetic performance from the SEC power, LSU only fell one spot this week to No. 5. Patrick Schmidt and James Gomez ranked the Tigers at No. 2, while Justine Hendricks dropped them all the way to No. 16.
LSU will travel this week to face the Florida Gators in a huge Top 25 match-up for the SEC.
No. 6 - West Virginia Mountaineers
70-63... YES... 70-63!
That game that kicked off around noon pretty much set the tone for the nation in all games yesterday as you were simply not doing your job as a top team or a QB if you didn't throw for 400+ yards and 5 touchdowns.
Smith did way better than that and the game even had 2 receivers go for over 300 yards.
The Mountaineers were ranked as high as No. 3 and as low as No. 8 by a few Rant Writers to place them in the No. 6 slot.
West Virginia will hit the road for Austin, Texas, and battle the Texas Longhorns in a big Top 25 match-up this week.
No. 7 - South Carolina Gamecocks
It was pretty clear the fighting Steve Spurriers were looking ahead a week to the big game with the No. 3 Georgia Bulldogs this Saturday.
Either that or that reporter got into the Old Ball Coach's head more than everyone thought.
It just wasn't pretty as the Gamecocks had to fight back and survive against the lowly Kentucky Wildcats, 38-17.
That sub-par performance hurt South Carolina as it fell one spot to No. 7.
Columbia, South Carolina, should be an interesting place this week whether Spurrier talks to the media or not in prep for ESPN's College Game Day and the Dawgs.
No. 9 - Notre Dame Fighting Irish
The Notre Dame Fighting Irish were idle this week but still managed to move up in the poll one spot to the 9th slot.
South Bend, Indiana, will be on upset alert as the young, explosive up-start Miami Hurricanes will come blowing in to face the Irish this week.
No. 11 - Texas Longhorns
Even with the emotional victory on the road against the Cowboys who were ranked at No. 25 this past week, the majority of the rant team all had the Longhorns as their 11th team for Week 5.
Texas prepares for the big plays of the 6th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers who come calling to Austin, Texas, this weekend.
No. 12 - Ohio State Buckeyes
The Buckeyes hope to keep their record perfect as they host the Nebraska Cornhuskers in a Top 25 battle.
No. 13 - Clemson Tigers
The Tigers put up 576 yards of total offense including 367 in the air and 209 on the ground. And that was without the services of WR Sammy Watkins.
After two tough games on the road, Clemson returns to the warm, loud confines of Death Valley this week to host the sinking Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.
No. 15 TCU Horned Frogs
Despite giving up 16 points to the Mustangs, the Horned Frogs still remain at No. 2 in the nation in fewest points allowed averaging just 7.3 points per contest.
TCU will host the Iowa State Cyclones this week in conference action.
No. 17 - Stanford Cardinal
It was a bad loss that left the Rant Team unimpressed with the Cardinal as they dropped eight spots from No. 9 to No. 17
Stanford will host the Arizona Wildcats in conference action this week.
No. 18 - Oregon State Beavers
The Beavers will look to remain perfect in 2012 as the host the Washington State Cougars on Saturday.
No. 20 - Louisville Cardinals
The Louisville Cardinals struggled on the road and just got by the Southern Miss Eagles, 21-17.
That poor showing led to the Cardinals dropping two spots to come in at No. 20 this week.
Louisville is off this week.
No. 24 - Boise State Broncos
Despite slipping by the New Mexico Lobos, 32-29, on the road the Boise State Broncos actually moved up one spot to No. 24 this week.
The Broncos will stay on the road as it travels to face the Southern Miss Eagles this weekend.
