Week 6 Cobs: So Many Turnovers, Bad Refs and Upsets

New, 28 comments

This was the craziest week of the college football season yet.

NCAA Football: Alabama at Texas A&M Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Wow what a week of college football! Let’s somersault into the cob nominations for Week 6 of College Football.

Alabama

Alabama won 100 straight games against unranked opponents. Then the Tide rolled into College Station on Saturday and completely fell apart. There are not too many times I will get the chance to cob Bama.

Texas

The Longhorns jumped out to a 28-7 lead in the first quarter and went into halftime with a 18 point lead. It looked the Sooners were in trouble but then Spencer Rattler was benched for Caleb Williams who led Oklahoma on an incredible comeback.

Memphis

After beating Mississippi State and starting the season 3-0, Memphis has lost three straight filled with mistakes. Their game against Tulsa was no exception. The Tigers committed three turnovers including the one you see below, which sealed the game for the Golden Hurricane.

BYU

The Cougars jumped out to an early 10-0 lead and were looking comfortable against the Bronocs. Four turnovers later, Boise State pulls off the upset 26-17, which was surprisingly their first road win over a top 10 team since 2001. Off to the Independence Bowl for BYU.

Big Ten Refs

When your crew have four calls reviewed and then overturned in one half, it means you’re doing a bad job. And there was this pass interference call along with many missed holding and illegal formation calls on both teams. Horrible effect all around from Reggie Smith and his crew.

ACC Refs

The ACC Refs didn’t have a great week either.

We have a crazy selection of cob nominations for Week 6 of College Football but unfortunately you can only pick one.

Heartbreaking loss for Arkansas.

Almost a disaster

Lateral for a pick 6? Very clever by the Sun Devils.

The Zips actually had some fun in their win over Bowling Green.
