The beauty of college football will be shown in week six. If you look at this list of games in the summer, you will have entered two games: Alabama vs. Texas A&M and Oklahoma vs. Texas in the Red River competition.
Red River ended up being a total blast Texas beat the Sooners 49-0. But there are plenty of great matches as the day goes on.

Four teams are unbeaten in the Pac-12 game so far this season. And with the divisions eliminated, this conference title race could prove to be very exciting. UCLA, now 5-0, played four poor opponents to open the year before upsetting a seeded team in Washington at home last Friday night. Utes are the defending champions of the Pac 12 and won four times in a row after a disappointing road loss to Florida in Week 1. Utis has a solid defense and made four interceptions in last week’s win over Oregon State.

The Trojans fell 5-0 and reached sixth place in an Associated Press poll in their weekend home game against Washington State. Caleb Williams was excellent again against Arizona State last week, but he finally threw his first interception of the year. This was USC’s first turnover of the year, which is still No. 1 in the country in terms of turnover margin at plus-14. Meanwhile, Washington State rebounded from a heartbreaking loss to Oregon by bypassing Cal 28-9 at home to improve to 4-1 this year. QB Cameron Ward is a dynamic talent, but he will need to limit his shifts if WSU is to cause major disruption to the Coliseum.

A few months ago, expect most of the huge bets for this game. Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban have had some of the most bizarre drama in recent memory with a war of words about NIL, among other things. The two claim to have crushed their meat, but Fisher’s defiant press conference will be on the minds of as many as Aggies and Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa. Texas A&M upset the tides at College Station last fall, but the Aggies had a disappointing 3-2 start to the year. Meanwhile, Alabama is leading 5-0 and reaching the top spot in the standings after a convincing win over Arkansas.
Heisman-winning Alabama quarterback Bryce Young is in doubt about playing due to a shoulder injury he picked up in the Arkansas win. However, Alabama is still a huge favourite. This says a lot about the status of these two programs currently.
