Athlon Sports Cover 2 Podcast: Week 6


In the Week 6 episode of the Athlon Sports Cover 2 podcast, co-hosts Braden Gall and David Fox give a few quick reactions on what happened in an eventful Week 5 and then take a look at this week’s action.

In this week’s podcast:

• Braden runs down the headlines of the week (non-Lane Kiffin division): Aaron Murray came out on top for Georgia, but Zach Mettenberger rose to the occasion, Alabama’s quietly convincing win over Ole Miss, Ohio State’s championship-caliber defense and why Oklahoma is now the Big 12 frontrunner.

• In Kiffin news, we rate where USC stands as an elite college football job. Is it still an A-plus job, and who would our amateur ADs look at for the Trojans’ job?

• A quick look around the ACC, previewing Maryland-Florida State. Do the Seminoles have reason to worry against the Terps and where does the Coastal stand?

• Beyond USC’s loss, the Pac-12 made news as Washington, Stanford and Oregon flexed their muscles. Where do the Huskies stand going into their game against Stanford?

The podcast can be found on, iTunes and our podcast RSS feed.
