Florida(-21.5) at Kentucky - Florida will win this game...shocker.  Tim Tebow, after having an average game against the fighting Kiffins will be focused on making Kentucky his own personal whipping boy or "boys".  This game will be ugly and with the spread at 21.5 I would jump on this game if I were a bettin' man....but I'm not.

Arkansas at Alabama(-17.5) - Alabama is looking solid.  I say that meaning they look refined.  You don't see many missed assignments and there seems to be a business like attitude about them.  The only trap I see in this game is that Alabama cannot get themselves into a track meet here.  Mallett will beat Alabama if it turns into that type of game because McElroy just hasn't shown me that he can win the game yet for Bama.  Unfortunately for Arky, that isn't going to happen.  Bama by 2 or 3 touchdown's.

LSU(-12) at MSU - Is there any bigger question mark than the one planted in Baton Rouge right now?  LSU will win this game but how they win it is in question.  There is a ton of talent down on the bayou but is The Hat the right man to lead them?  Another 5 loss sseason and you'll see some unruly cajun's coming out of the woodwork.

Ball St at Auburn (-33) - Watch out Tigers.  Ball St. has managed to sandwich themselves between two major games for Auburn.  Luckily for Auburn this isn't the same Ball St. that went 12-0 through the regular season last's the 0-3 version that has actually lost 5 straight after going 12-0.  Auburn puts 50+ on the Cardinals in a tune up for the big showdown in Knoxville next week.

Arizona St. at Georgia(-12) - Hopefully Georgia will be rested up after the track meet last weekend.  Georgia wins this one in yet another close game.  Georgia by 7 or less.

Ohio at Tennessee(-24) - Can Tennessee put 24 up on the scoreboard?  If they hand the ball enough times they should be fine.  Tennessee however needs to polish up the passing attack if they want to stay with Auburn next week.  Watch for a lot of throwing and and a low scoring first half.  Tennessee starts running the ball for some style points in the second half.

Vandy(-7) at Rice - Vandy needs a "W" badly if there is any hope for a second straight bowl berth.  Playing at Rice will be no easy task for the Commy's but winning this game is a must.
