A new week of college football games is in the books with Week 6 set to take center stage this weekend.

We do have several newcomers including TCU quarterback Max Duggan after the Horned Frogs’ massive blowout win over Oklahoma.

Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa also joined the group after his performance in the win over Michigan State.
