Alabama Crimson Tide (-17) at Kentucky Wildcats
OK, call me crazy ... the Florida Gators were 23 point favorites against the same team on the same field.  Contrary to popular opinion, Florida called the dogs off after jumping out to a HUGE lead.  Bama should not only cover, but destroy this spread even without Hightower on defense.

Alabama 42  Kentucky 17

Ole Miss Rebels (-9.5) at Vanderbilt Commodores
How does Ole Miss rebound after losing to the Gamecocks?  Vandy will be tougher than expected at home.

Ole Miss 20  Vandy 16

LSU Tigers  at Georgia Bulldogs (-2.5)
LSU's close scare against the MSU Bulldogs apparently has Vegas scratching their nether regions.  Georgia's offense has looked fantastic since the opening day loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  Georgia's defense needs to man up if the Bulldogs are to win this one.

Georgia 21  LSU 17

Georgia Tech (-4.5) at Mississippi State Bulldogs
Georgia Tech's strong rushing attack comes to Starkville.  MSU was manhandled last season by GT ... that was last year.

Georgia Tech 24   MSU 20

Arkansas Razorbacks (-1) at Texas A& M Aggies
Arkansas' offensive line was exposed by better athletes in a blow out loss to Alabama.  Can The Razorbacks keep the SEC's out of conference winning streak intact?

Arkansas 31  A&M 20

Auburn Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers (-2)
You probably just said the same thing that we did.  UT is favored by two?  Yes, the game is in Knoxville ... but the game is not a sell out at this point.  Apparently the locals are not sold on the Lane Train or is it the fact that the tickets are $70 face value?  The Vols could have lost to Ohio last week ... the BOBCATS not the Buckeyes.

Auburn 23  Tennessee 17
