This past week was a little tougher picking the games. I just knew it was upset weekend. I called the Alabama upset and nearly got a second if Tennessee could have just made a handoff. But the real shocker was Ole Miss beating Florida at Florida. I think Ole Miss is the only one that even thought about that happening and they probably even thought they’d lose. But congrats to the Rebels. My Dawgs did pretty decent at LSU and things may have been closer had Ducre not dropped a pass late in the game. Oh well, that’s college football. This weekend, I don’t see any surprises.
Kentucky at Alabama – Alabama just pounded Georgia at Georgia and you think Kentucky’s going to come in and beat the tide at home, ranked #2? No way. Tide fans will be going crazy and Kentucky’s in for a long afternoon. Alabama 37 Kentucky 10
Florida at Arkansas – Florida’s mad having lost at home to lesser competition in Ole Miss. Arkansas has been pretty much no competition to any decent team they’ve played. I’m afraid it’s another long afternoon for an SEC team. Florida 42 Arkansas 7
Auburn at Vanderbilt – This is an intriguing game and if there were an upset, this would be a possibility. Vanderbilt looks like they have a great chance at a bowl game this year and Auburn has been less than stellar. My brain says go with Auburn here but my heart says Vandy. Vanderbilt 20 Auburn 17
South Carolina at Ole Miss – Ole Miss is hotty toddy off a big win over Florida and will now come home to a raucous crowd, excited about the possibility of postseason play. Spurrier’s team hasn’t shown a whole lot this year. Still, the Gamecocks will give it a shot and make it close. Ole Miss 31 South Carolina 21
Northern Illinois at Tennessee – Tennessee’s writing a check for this one. Out of conference is nice this time of year and UT will be glad to play a pushover. No competition here. Tennessee 41 Northern Illiniois 10
Last week 5-2
This year 34-9
