Week 6 of the 2013 NCAA football betting season is in the books, and today, we're going to take a look at each of the Top 25 teams in the land and see how they fared from an ATS perspective over the course of this past week.
(Results in parentheses represent SU Result-ATS Result)
1: Alabama (W-L vs. Georgia State 45-3)
It still wasn't quite what Nick Saban was hoping for. Bama is now just 2-3 ATS and looks beatable.
2: Oregon (W-W vs. Colorado 57-16)
Oregon had 29 on the board in the first quarter and Marcus Mariota finished with seven total TDs.
3: Clemson (W-W vs. Syracuse 49-14)
Clemson continues to march, as a 35-7 lead at halftime was good enough to pound the 'Cuse at the Carrier Dome.
4: Ohio State (W-W vs. Northwestern 40-30)
It was dangerous every step of the way, but the Buckeyes did best the Wildcats and cover the closing number in one of the most incredible frontdoor covers in the history of sportsbetting.
5: Stanford (W-L vs. Washington 31-28)
Washington hit the backdoor to cover against the Cardinal, but the win was never in doubt.
6: Georgia (W-L vs. Tennessee 34-31)
Georgia really had no business beating Tennessee and was lucky to survive.
7: Louisville (W-L vs. Temple 30-7)
Ho hum. Another 348 yards for Teddy Ballgame.
8: Florida State (W-W vs. Maryland 63-0)
FSU might be the most dangerous team in the country, and Jameis Winston might be the new Heisman favorite after torching the Terps.
9: Texas A&M (Bye)
Kevin Sumlin might have spent the off week preparing his resume for the jobs at USC or Texas.
10: LSU (W-W vs. Mississippi State 59-26)
This was a 31-26 game at the end of the third quarter, and then the floodgates opened.
11: Oklahoma (W-L vs. TCU 20-17)
The OU defense strikes again, holds the Horned Frogs to just 210 yards of total offense in an ugly three-point triumph.
12: UCLA (W-W vs. Utah 34-27)
It was never an easy game, but the Bruins put down the Utes in SLC and moved up in the polls as a result.
13: South Carolina (W-L vs. Kentucky 35-28)
Think Jadeveon Clowney even cares about SC any longer? He sat out because he was "sore" and Steve Spurrier doesn't seem to care about him anymore. Another non-cover for the 'ol ball coach.
14: Miami (W-W vs. Georgia Tech 45-30)
The Canes dropped over 550 yards on the Yellow Jackets, and they needed every single one of those yards to pull out the home win and cover.
15: Washington (L-W vs. Stanford 31-28)
Keith Price torched the Stanford defense for 350 yards and a pair of TD strikes in Saturday's tough defeat; it gets no easier next week with Oregon paying a visit to Seattle.
16: Northwestern (L-L vs. Ohio State 40-30)
The Wildcats represented themselves well, but they were never good enough to beat OSU; they're carelessness at the end of the game saw a whole bunch of money exchange hands the other way.
17: Baylor (W-W vs. West Virginia 73-42)
In two games against WVU since it joined the Big 12, the Bears now have 1,564 yards, 72 first downs, and 136 points… and a 1-1 record.
18: Florida (W-W vs. Arkansas 30-10)
UF fell behind 7-0 early, but once it got rolling, it was never tested by the Hogs.
19: Michigan (W-W vs. Minnesota 42-13)
It took 28 second half points to really put aside the Golden Gophers once and for all.
20: Texas Tech (W-W vs. Kansas 54-16)
The Red Raiders were down 10-0 in the middle of the second quarter, and then they rolled off 54 straight points to down the pitiful Jayhawks.
21: Oklahoma State (W-L vs. Kansas State 33-29)
Don't be shocked if the Cowboys are facing a four or a five-loss season. They were once again lucky to escape against KSU.
22: Arizona State (L-L vs. Notre Dame 37-34)
The Sun Devils drop out of the Top 25 after QB Taylor Kelly threw away a chance at beating the Irish.
23: Fresno State (W-W vs. Idaho 61-14)
Fresno State dropped 47 on Idaho in the first half before the team finally stopped laughing.
24: Ole Miss (L-L vs. Auburn 30-22)
It was predicted to be a tough game, but the Rebels will still drop out of the Top 25 as a result of falling to Auburn and looking real mediocre in doing so.
25: Maryland (L-L vs. Florida State 63-0)
The Terps never did end up beating Florida State in Tallahassee in school history, and they'll be glad to be done with Doak Campbell Stadium after losing 63-0 Saturday.
