2021 College Football Week 6 TV and Announcer Schedule

The Cotton Bowl hosts this year’s Red River Showdown between No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 21 Texas (ABC, Oct. 9 @ 12:00 p.m. ET). The Sooners have won the past three showdowns, including a quadruple-overtime classic last season in Dallas. Oklahoma has won 13 straight games overall.

The No. 13 Razorbacks (4-1, 1-1 SEC) and No. 17 Rebels (3-1, 0-1) hope to bounce back from lopsided losses (ESPN, Oct. 9 @ 12:00 p.m. ET). Arkansas was shut out for the first time since 2018 following a 37-0 setback to No. 2 Georgia. Ole Miss fell 42-21 to top-ranked Alabama.

The No. 18 Tigers and No. 2 Bulldogs write another chapter of the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry (CBS, Oct. 9 @ 3:30 p.m. ET). Georgia blasted then-No. 8 Arkansas last week in its second straight shutout victory. Auburn escaped Death Valley with a 24-19 win over LSU on Oct. 2.

The No. 3 Hawkeyes (5-0, 2-0 Big Ten) host No. 4 Nittany Lions (5-0, 2-0) in a battle of unbeatens (Fox, Oct. 9 @ 4:00 p.m. ET). Iowa has won 11 straight games, including eight in a row against Big Ten opponents. Sean Clifford has thrown a touchdown pass in eight straight games.
