The Red River Rivalry turned into a Red River Blooper Reel. All that and more were included in the Week 6 Cob Nominations. Before we start, let’s look at all the points Mike Leach’s ‘Air Raid’ Offense scored against Kentucky last week.
The Houston Cougars were finally playing their first game of the season against the Tulane Green Wave. The Cougars did not have a great start to this game as the Green Wave surged to a 24-7 lead. However, despite committing five turnovers in the game, Houston rallied and outscored Tulane 42-7 the rest of the way on route to a 49-31 win.
LSU’s defense reared its ugly head again giving up 45 points and 586 total yards on defense.
In the end, their offense had the chance to win the game but were stopped four times at the one-yard line and Missouri pulled off the upset.
This game was just crazy enough (in a bad way) that both teams deserved cobs. Oklahoma looked like they will locked in for a win until they completely blew it with plays this one below.

Once we get to overtime, it was filled with more mistakes, missed field goals and an interception to cap off the highest scoring game in a Red River Rivalry.
Sometimes you take risks and they completely backfire. Why would you even go for a field goal in this case? In the end, It didn’t really matter much as Clemson cruised past Miami 45-17.

Another week. Another terrible call by the SEC Refs. This time it cost Arkansas a possible win. The play was ruled intention grounding instead of a fumble and then backwards pass. Auburn keeps the ball and later kicks a game winning field goal to win 30-28.
Arkansas got screwed by the refs. This is one of the worst calls I’ve ever seen and was absolutely a fumble by Auburn. pic.twitter.com/hL119lSoWA— David Hookstead (@dhookstead) October 10, 2020
SEC Officiating made a statement saying it was the correct call.

Well that’s another great selection of cobs for Week 6 of College Football but unfortunately you can only pick one.
