Two huge SEC showdowns highlight the weekend slate
College football's Week 6 action is highlighted by two huge games in the SEC. Georgia and South Carolina meet in Columbia in a game that could decide the SEC East, and LSU travels to Florida in a key game for both programs.
Clemson travels to FSU for huge ACC Coastal showdown
College football’s fourth week of action features a huge showdown in the ACC Coastal Division, a big matchup in South Bend between Michigan and surging Notre Dame and key battle in the Big 12 between Kansas State and Oklahoma.
This heated rivalry will decide Palmetto State supremacy.
Clemson versus South Carolina is one of the more underrated and hate-filled rivalries in college football. The Gamecocks and Tigers have been playing since 1896, and Clemson the all-time series 65-39-4.
South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery is a stud, but Watkins is quickly becoming a star
The South Carolina Gamecocks have struggled on offense this year but still stand at 6-1. Preseason All-America wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will have to lead the way down the stretch with star running back Marcus Lattimore lost for the season with a knee injury. Jeffery has 30 catches for 451 yards and five touchdowns in seven games on the year. That’s not bad, but it is nowhere near the pace of last season’s 88 receptions for 1,517 yards and nine scores. Meanwhile at Clemson, five-star freshman Sammy Watkins is lighting up opponents.
As is the case at every halfway point of the college football season, many preseason predictions have come true exactly as anticipated – Alabama, Oklahoma, LSU, Oregon, Stanford – while others have fallen painfully into bust category – Florida State, Ohio State.
