Week 6 of the college football regular season didn’t feature that many upsets like we witnessed a week ago. However, a few ranked teams did fall including No. 13 Auburn losing to No. 19 Vanderbilt, 14-13. The Commodores covered as four-point home underdogs, improving to 5-0 for the first time since 1943.
The AP poll and its writers have moved Vanderbilt to the 13th position in their latest rankings, yet the school hasn’t been given a sniff of credit from our friends at Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the company that makes the lines for the majority of casinos in Nevada.
LVSC is in the business of putting their clients (casinos) in a position to garner equal action on all games, not tout a school that is unbeaten. With that being said, there is reason that Vanderbilt is laying less than a field goal on the road to a 1-4 Mississippi State squad this Saturday.
Week 7 features four big matchups with ranked teams within the LVSC Top 30, including a pair of battles in the Big 12.
Top-ranked Oklahoma and No. 4 Texas meet in Dallas, while No. 3 Missouri hosts No. 15 Oklahoma State. The conference has five unbeaten teams, which is the most in the nation.
Other big games include No. 5 Florida vs. No. 11 LSU and No. 6 Penn State making a road trip to No. 19 Wisconsin.
No schools dropped out of the Top 30 this past weekend, but South Florida’s 26-21 home loss to Pittsburgh as a 13 ½-point favorite was another disappointing setback for Jim Leavitt’s team. The Bulls fell to the No. 24 spot in the rankings after sitting in the 15th position.
