It's hard to believe that the end of the Week 6 college football slate will mark the halfway point in the season for a handful of programs.

As we take a look at betting lines for the Week 6 docket, there are plenty of games with large points spreads and over/under totals, as well as game lines that are less than a field goal, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

College Football Week 6 Odds & Spreads

Unlike what we saw in Week 4, where two top-10 teams lost, all of the top-ranked teams in action survived the Week 5 schedule unscathed. Aside from then-No. 15 Cal's 24-17 home loss to Arizona State and No. 1 Clemson's 21-20 road scare against an unranked North Carolina team, it was business as usual throughout the remainder of the AP Top-25 Poll.

This weekend's biggest matchups feature a Big Ten cross-divisional contest between No. 14 Iowa and No. 19 Michigan, where the Hawkeyes are 4.5-point underdogs in Ann Arbor, and an SEC matchup between No. 7 Auburn and No. 10 Florida on the road in Gainesville, Fla. – a game the Tigers are favored by three points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

The final top-25 showdown of Week 6 features a heavily-favored Ohio State team looking for its first win over a ranked opponent this season. The Buckeyes will battle No. 25 Michigan State in Columbus, Ohio, with OSU coming in as a 20.5-point favorite.

This week's largest spread, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, comes to us from South Bend, Ind., as No. 9 Notre Dame hosts 45.5-point underdog Bowling Green in Notre Dame Stadium at 3:30 p.m. EST on Saturday. No. 8 Wisconsin isn't far behind the Fighting Irish with the second-largest spread of the Week 6 agenda, as the Badgers are favored by 37 points over Kent State for their 12 p.m. EST showdown with the Golden Flashes at home in Madison, Wis.

As for the highest over/under total of Week 6, Utah State and LSU's noon EST matchup in Baton Rouge takes that crown with a projected 72-point total, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. On the opposite end of the scoring spectrum, the Rice vs. UAB game has the lowest over/under of the week, at 42.5 points.

With a good few days left before these contests kick off, these lines are bound to move in one direction or the other before Saturday.
