Week 6 is highlighted by the Red River Rivalry between the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners and No. 21 Texas Longhorns, but that isn’t the only good matchup we have to look forward to. After both suffering losses in Week 5, No. 13 Arkansas takes on No. 17 Ole Miss with both teams looking for bounce-back wins. The biggest matchup of the weekend is No. 3 Penn State taking on No. 4 Iowa with the winner likely to remain in the Top Four and with a CFP berth in sight. No. 1 Alabama takes on Texas A&M and No. 2 Georgia takes on No. 18 Auburn.
