Morning Six Pack: October 5, 2012 Gameday Eve. Nothing fuels the anticipation more than a cool, clear and crisp six pack. Check out these six college football stories from around the country.

USC overcomes two-TD deficit to beat Utah

Matt Barkley passed for 303 yards and three touchdowns, including an 83-yarder to Marqise Lee in the fourth quarter and No. 13 Southern California came back from a two-touchdown deficit to beat Utah 38-28 on Thursday night.


A superstitious Zach Mettenberger chose to shave his mustache after the LSU offense struggled in last week's win.

Offensive numbers are exploding, but some defensive coaches not ready to rest case

So, this is what football has become? A game of offense, with defenders the perfect foil? Not so fast. Dennis Dodd finds a few coaches with some perspective, like Nick Saban and Tommy Tuberville. But they're realists, too.

McDuffie accounts for two TDs in UCF's victory

Quincy McDuffie had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and added another 64-yard touchdown reception to help Central Florida beat East Carolina 40-20 on Thursday night.

The Gator Equipment department is keeping the public guessing on uniforms

The Florida Gator equipment Twitter account, @GatorEquipment, is keeping Florida Gator and LSU Tiger fans guessing on what color uniforms UF will wear this weekend in the upcoming match up.


At 4-0 heading into Saturday's home game against UNLV, the Bulldogs are knocking on the door of the top 25 and averaging 52.0 points, making an early case to be a BCS-buster out of the Western Athletic Conference. Better yet, their start includes victories at Illinois (52-24) and Virginia (44-38), games for which Louisiana Tech got paid a combined $1.6 million.

Though it's too soon to pencil the Bulldogs in for the Fiesta Bowl – an Oct. 13 game in Shreveport, La., against Texas A&M looms large – there is an unprecedented buzz about their program, which will move to Conference USA next season.

"If you want people to respect you, just win with consistency," said third-year head coach Sonny Dykes. "We've done that to an extent, but we've got to keep progressing. And if we can somehow figure out a way to win this week, Texas A&M would be a game that would get a lot of people's attention on a big stage, and we'll find out if we're ready."
