2018 College Football Week 6 Betting Odds

The Group of Five conferences don’t get much love during the season, competing against the big boys can do that. But some of the top teams in the next level of Division I will take center stage to open Week 6 of the college football schedule. The Troy Trojans won 11 games last year to win the Sun Belt Conference and they are 21-5 over the last two seasons. They are predicted to compete for another title in the restructured league that will feature divisional play for the first time and host Georgia State on Thursday in an East Division battle.

One of the top teams and one of the best players from the American Athletic Conference will be on display Thursday night in primetime. The Houston Cougars are a frontrunner to win the AAC West and they will unleash Ed Oliver on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Another Group of Five matchup takes place on Friday with Marshall hosting Middle Tennessee in a Conference USA tilt. And even before we get to rivalry week we have few rivalry games. The battle for Florida takes place in Miami with the Hurricanes hosting the Florida State Seminoles. The Commander In Chief’s Trophy race also gets underway with a service academy tilt between Air Force and Navy. And there are plenty of salacious conference games.

2018 NCAA Football Week 6 Betting Schedule

October 2nd, 2018 to October 8th, 2018

Thursday, October 4

Georgia State at Troy, 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPNU)

Tulsa at Houston, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Week 6 college football action begins with an appetizer from the American Athletic Conference with one of that league’s top favorites against a struggling road dog that faces oblivion before the season even reaches the halfway point. The Tulsa Golden Hurricane can be plucky at times but ultimately has proven to be outgunned in most of its games. The Houston Cougars have proven to be half of a team in that they boast the nation’s top ranked offenses which is offset by a defense that is virtually nonexistent. More

Friday, October 5

Georgia Tech at Louisville, 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Week 6 preliminary action incudes a challenging Friday night matchup from the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Louisville Cardinals are in free fall just two years removed from having a Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and being in the conversation for the college football playoff. The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets stopped their own bleeding last week but that does not take away from their disappointing start. While both teams can still attain bowl eligibility neither has any margin for error. Which is what makes Friday night’s matchup so potentially intriguing. More

Middle Tennessee at Marshall, 7:30 p.m. ET (CBSSN)

Utah State at BYU, 9 p.m. ET (ESPN2)

If you didn’t live in Utah, you probably wouldn’t know that the rivalry between the Utah State Aggies and BYU Cougars is one of the low-key fiercest non-conference rivalry games in the country. Utah State fans troll BYU by calling the school BYU-P or BYU-Provo, while BYU fans counter by pointing to their national championship and overall success. This will be the 88th meeting between the schools, and Utah State will look to win The Old Wagon Wheel for the second straight year. More

Saturday, October 6

Buffalo at Central Michigan, TBD


Tulane at Cincinnati, TBD

UConn at Memphis, TBD

East Carolina at Temple, TBD

South Alabama at Georgia Southern, TBD

Louisiana-Lafayette at Texas State, TBD

San Diego State at Boise State, TBD

Northern Illinois at Ball State, TBD

Wyoming at Hawai'i, TBD

Fresno State at Nevada, TBD

Old Dominion at Florida Atlantic, TBD

Kansas State at Baylor, TBD

Iowa State at Oklahoma State, TBD

Kansas at West Virginia, TBD

Texas at Oklahoma, TBD

With impressive resurgence after a disappointing week one loss to the Maryland Terrapins the Texas Longhorns are catching attention and respect, especially with a defense that is among the most improved in the country. However, the Longhorns will be facing a supreme challenge going up against one of the most sophisticated and explosive offenses in the country. Indeed, the Oklahoma Sooners boast a bona fide Heisman Trophy candidate in quarterback Kyler Murray. The matchup of the Oklahoma offense and the Texas defense makes for phenomenal live betting possibilities. Overall this game ranks as one of the most challenging and highly anticipated handicaps of the college football season so far! More

Boston College at North Carolina State, TBD

Clemson at Wake Forest, TBD

Florida State at Miami, TBD

Syracuse at Pittsburgh, TBD

Notre Dame at Virginia Tech, TBD

Week six includes what could be one of the top games all season thus far as the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are flashing championship form since changing quarterbacks while the Virginia Tech Hokies got back on track in a most impressive win last week at Duke after a humiliating loss at Old Dominion two weeks ago that they may never totally live down. Virginia Tech will host Notre Dame in a matchup of teams that could be evenly matched. And while Notre Dame may have the advantage at quarterback the environment at Lane Stadium will be over the top. More

Nebraska at Wisconsin, TBD

South Florida at UMass, TBD

Alabama at Arkansas, TBD

Two teams on opposite ends of the SEC West spectrum are set to tangle in a Week 6 matchup with the nation’s top-ranked team playing in only its second true road game of the season. The Alabama Crimson Tide kept its standing as the No. 1 ranked team with yet another blowout win, a 56-14 thrashing of Louisiana-Lafayette. The Tide opened as a 34-point favorite against the Arkansas Razorbacks, a lofty number but considering Bama’s starters have yet to finish a game, there could be some money to win on the second half live betting lines. More

LSU at Florida, TBD

Vanderbilt at Georgia, TBD

UL Monroe at Ole Miss, TBD

Auburn at Mississippi State, TBD

It’s the 10-year anniversary of one of the “greatest” games in college football history. On September 13, 2008, the Auburn Tigers and Mississippi State Bulldogs met in Starkville in each team’s SEC opener. Neither offense could produce much despite fine weather, and Auburn ended up beating Mississippi State 3-2. More points should be in store when these schools meet this year, as Gus Malzahn and Joe Moorhead are two of the sharpest offensive minds in the game. More

Missouri at South Carolina, TBD

Kentucky at Texas A&M, TBD

California at Arizona, TBD

Washington at UCLA, TBD

Arizona State at Colorado, TBD

Washington State at Oregon State, TBD

Week 6 College Football Games of the Week

Navy at Air Force, Saturday, October 6, 3:30 p.m. ET (CBSSN)

The service academies aren’t going to play for a national championship, but they have their own trophy that’s far more prestigious to them than the crystal football will ever be. We’re talking about the Commander In Chief’s Trophy, which is contested for every year between Air Force, Navy and Army. Army won the trophy last season, but prior to that the Falcons and Midshipmen battled for the hardware with each winning 10 times in the previous 20 years.

The annual Army-Navy game grabs more headlines, but this matchup has been the decider in many Commander In Chief’s Trophy battles. Both teams love to run the football and they have had difficulty stopping opponents. Traditionally the games are high-scoring and last year’s was no different with the Middies getting a 48-45 win. Air Force snapped a seven-game series losing streak in 2010 and since then the teams have split eight meetings with the Falcons getting three victories in Colorado Springs.

Florida State at Miami, Saturday, October 6

A rivalry that has featured darn near everything a football fan could imagine takes place on Saturday. And with both teams competing in the same conference and usually highly ranked, a heated rivalry has more intensity. We typically see a good football game, too. Each of the last four meetings was decided by five points or less and the road team has won the last two in dramatic fashion.

Two years ago the Canes were undefeated and ranked No. 10 in the nation when they hosted the Noles. Trailing 20-13 Brad Kaaya threw a touchdown pass with 98 seconds left in the fourth and it looked like the game would be tied. However, DeMarcus Walker blocked the extra point attempt and the Noles ran out the clock to escape with a narrow victory and their seventh straight win. The Canes got the last laugh last season with Malik Rosier throwing a game-winning touchdown pass with six seconds left to end Miami’s skid to their in-state rival.
