Where will ESPN College GameDay be headed in Week 6?
While we don’t know the location that ESPN College GameDay will be in next week on October 10, we can make a few predictions. Texas will take on Oklahoma next week and with both teams ranked, it can make for an appealing matchup. There’s an outside chance they can also go with Florida vs. Texas A&M, which may provide some diversity in their game selection.
And finally, maybe the most logical choice would be Miami vs. Clemson, as both teams are currently ranked in the top 10. While this would be Miami’s third appearance on ESPN College GameDay of the Week this season, and the third in four weeks, this matchup just makes too much sense on paper to pass up.
Draft Prospects to watch out for in Georgia vs. Auburn
WR Seth Williams, Auburn
Seth Williams may well be the best of the Auburn draft prospects on show against Georgia. He has already proven himself to be a game-changer this season. Williams had a stellar start to the season in the opener against Kentucky, leading the team in receptions, receiving yards, yards per reception, and securing two vital touchdowns in the second half to help the Tigers pull away from the Wildcats.

Safety Richard LeCounte
PFN Draft Analyst Neal Driscoll believes that Richard LeCounte is Georgia’s top 2021 Draft prospect, noting that he started the 2020 season off with a bang, securing three tackles and two interceptions in the Bulldogs’ victory over Arkansas.
LeCounte plays the game with outstanding football intelligence and demonstrates brilliant route recognition ability. He is an enforcer against the run, possessing upper-echelon pursuit skills and the ability to lay the lumber. In pass coverage, he displays the ability to shut down athletic tight ends and has plus ball skills.
