College Football's Top Teams and Heisman Hopefuls: Week #6

LSU reigns supreme, both teams in the City of Angels fall and Oklahoma returns to the BCS title hunt Sooner than later.

In other developments, Wisconsin loses at Illnois. The Badgers haven't played well all year and finally have a "L" in the standings to prove it. Virginia Tech crushes Clemson at Death Valley and South Carolina beats previously-undefeated Kentucky on Thursday night.

This is the year of parody. The only teams with legitimate chances to be undefeated are LSU, California, Ohio State and Hawaii. But each team has shown moments of vulnerability.

Week 7 offers a mediocre slew of matchups. Top-ranked LSU visits Lexington. Can the Wildcats rebound from Thursday night's loss? Undefeated Missouri's trip to Oklahoma will tell which team is top dog in the Big 12. Boston College at Notre Dame could be intriguing.

Andre' Woodson had a miserable Thursday. Not only did his Kentucky team lose for the first time this season but he contributed heavily to the defeat. Woodson threw a pick and had two fumbled returned by South Carolina for touchdowns. He needs a big game (and a win) against #1 LSU to have any shot at the Heisman. Graham Harrell replaces another gunslinger, Hawaii QB Colt Brennan, in the third spot. P.J. Hill of Wisconsin gets replaced by his Big 10 counterpart on Saturday, Illinois RB Rashard Mendenhall.
