Brief profiles, capsules and ATS information on these marquee matchups in my Top 25 report at Forbes.

Since 1932, Big 12 rivals Oklahoma and Texas have played the Red River Rivalry at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

“There isn’t anything that compares to it in college or professional sports. There’s no setting like it. It’s unique. It’s iconic,” Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione said. “I guess you could say (OU-Texas is) a place where the combination of the passion of the two fanbases (collide) with the pure joy of being in the middle of the state fair.”

LSU (52 PPG), Alabama (52), Ohio State (49) and Oklahoma (49) are the four highest scoring teams through six weeks, but only Ohio State and Oklahoma make the ‘200 club’ list for offenses that both run and pass for at least 200 yards per game. See my latest report on these efficient and balanced offensive teams.
