Week 6: Kiffin v. Saban; King v. Lawrence; Heels v. Hokies

Week 6: Kiffin v. Saban; King v. Lawrence; Heels v. Hokies

Lane Kiffin gets the opportunity to snap among the more fascinating streaks in college football.

The brand-new Mississippi coach faces his old manager, Nick Saban, when the Rebels handle No. 2 Alabama on Saturday in Oxford. Saban recently enhanced to 20-0 when dealing with groups led by among his his previous assistant coaches. The Crimson Tide hammered Jimbo Fisher’s Texas A&M; group.

Kiffin worked as offending planner for Saban from 2014-2016, assisting the Crimson Tide win a nationwide title. Fittingly for a coach who has had an unpredictable profession, Kiffin’s time with the Tide ended the week prior to another championship game.

In spite of the uncomfortable departure, Kiffin had a little enjoyable with Saban today, informing the “Dan Patrick Show” he didn’t believe the “elderly” 68-year-old coach might cover him individually,

Saban stated Kiffin was most likely right.

“I guess what I would ask is, when he’s my age, what’s he going to do?” Saban informed press reporters. “I don’t know, it’s a little bit of a disadvantage to be my age and have had a hip replacement, but I still pride myself on my ability to cover. I just don’t think I can cover him.”

On the field, Alabama-Ole Miss has an opportunity to be an enjoyable match in between 2 high-scoring groups, with an intriguing side story. It is barely the marquee occasion on a schedule that consists of 4 video game matching ranked groups – 2 in the Southeastern Conference and 2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Plus, a Red River Face-off heavy on desperation.


No. 19 Virginia Tech at No. 8 North Carolina.

There are sexier video games on the schedule, most significantly No. 7 Miami at No. 1 Clemson, however Hokies-Heels is most likely the very best bet to offer 4 quarters of competitive football.

The Tar Heels are attempting to begin 3-0 for the very first time because 2011. The Hokies are 2-0, in spite of playing each of their video games with a thin lineup due to the fact that of COVID-19 concerns. Virginia Tech has yet to have quarterback Hendon Hooker or protective planner Justin Hamilton get involved on video game day, and recently beat Duke without its leading 4 cornerbacks.

That would be less than suitable versus North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell and skilled receivers Dyami Brown and Dazz Newsome.

Virginia Tech running back Khalil Herbert, a transfer from Kansas, is coming off a school record 357 all-purpose backyards versus Duke.

The Hokies beat the Tar Heels in 6 overtimes last season.


Miami quarterback D’Eriq King is the choice here for the 2nd time in 3 weeks, however this time it’s major.

The Hurricanes will attempt to show themselves worthwhile Atlantic Coast Conference competitors versus the league’s five-time champ, Clemson.

King has actually finished 67 percent of his passes and represented 7 goals without an interception in an offense that can highlight his arm or his legs.

If the senior King can lead Miami to a disturbed versus the No. 1 group in the nation – and versus Tigers quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the presumptive Heisman favorite – it might rise him to the top of the leaderboards.


0-3 – Oklahoma has actually lost 2 straight video games and enters into its video game versus Texas attempting to prevent beginning 0-3 in the Huge 12 for the very first time because 1998. The Longhorns likewise lost recently, making this the very first Red River Face-off with both groups coming off a loss because 2014.

29.25 – Backyards per reception for Kansas State running back Deuce Vaughn. Yes, running back. The 5-foot-5, 168-pound freshman has 8 catches for 234 backyards. The Wildcats dip into TCU.

41-9 – Typical rating in Georgia’s three-game winning streak versus Tennessee. The No. 14 Volunteers, riding an eight-game winning streak, seek to make a declaration versus the third-ranked Bulldogs in Athens.

371.4 – No. 15 BYU’s yardage differential through 3 video games, finest in the country without a doubt. The Cougars have actually played the very best competitors, however they led the country in overall offense (585.7) and overall defense (214.3). BYU hosts UTSA on Saturday.


Temple at Navy.

Houston has actually gotten a great deal of attention for beginning its season so late due to the fact that of 3 video games being cancelled due to challengers’ COVID-19 issues.

With less attention, the Owls still have actually not played a video game either. Temple postponed the start of its season early in the increase to handle COVID-19 constraints in Pennsylvania.

The Owls lastly start versus a Navy group that has actually been burnt out two times, sandwiched around a huge resurgence success versus Tulane.


Fascinating week for Texas A&M; coach Jimbo Fisher. No. 4 Florida pertains to College Station to deal with the 21st-ranked Aggies.

A&M; didn’t install much of a battle versus No. 2 Alabama recently, however this appears like a more sensible determining stick for Fisher’s restore.

He remains in season 3 of a 10-year agreement. Florida’s Dan Mullen remains in season 3 with the Gators, who appear like legitimate competitors in the SEC East. Anticipating a signature success of sorts for Fisher versus Florida doesn’t look like excessive to ask.
