Week five is filled with some interesting games. Not necessarily big games, but good match ups that will tell us a lot about the teams of the SEC.

7. So Car and SC state

South Carolina State is out matched and this will be a blow out. USC 45-0

6. Arkansas and Texas A&M

Here's a chance for Arkansas to show that their new offense works. Last week was an unfair matchup with what could be the best defense in the country in Alabama.  Texas A&M will provide a pretty good match up for the Hog's fine tune their offense a little bit more. Arkansas 31-24.

5. Alabama and Kentucky

Sorry Kentucky, your severely out matched in this one.  Top five offense and top five defense, the Crimson tide is just too much for you. Alabama 49-3

4. Ole Miss and Vandy

Ole Miss need's to prove they weren't overrated by pounding Vandy, which won't be an easy task.  Vandy has given teams fits all year long, and this week wont be any different.  I feel like Ole Miss has been treated unfairly for their loss. 

When UF lost to Ole Miss, UF didn't drop that far, nor were they flamed and called over-rated.  Everyone last year knew that it was an upset, upsets happen especially in the SEC.  So Ole Miss needs to get out there and prove the country wrong, and that will be their inspiration for this game.  Ole Miss 24-3

3. Miss St. and Georgia Tech

Miss St. has had a lot of close games with a lot of good teams.  Here's their next chance to show that Dan Mullen has improved Miss St from last year.  It won't be an easy task because GT has a great run game, and they run it on everyone (except Miami).  GT 34-24

2. Auburn and Tennessee

This is one of the better match ups this week. Great O vs Great D. Tennessee has shown they can stop great offenses, holding UF to only 23 pts, the lowest they've scored in a very long time.  I think Auburn should have this one, but if Tennessee get's their offense in gear, then expect a close exciting game.  AU 35-21

1. LSU and Georgia

Death Valley at night against a top five LSU team.  Most years that is the scariest place to be, however, Georgia has little to fear.  This is a top five LSU team that's playing like a bottom tier SEC school.  They struggled against Washington, Vandy, and Miss St; let me tell you something, Georgia is not Miss St.  I'm calling the upset on this one.  UGA 27-24
