Georgia at Kentucky--I think Georgia has come to life. The Bulldogs are playing much better defensively than they were earlier this season and the offense is in gear. Look for Georgia to win on the road in Lexington even though Kentucky's quarterback is having a terrific season.
South Carolina at Vanderbilt–The Gamecocks have just got more players and will win on the road.
LSU at Auburn--I like Auburn in this one. I am picking this game based on the history of the conference. You have to run and you have to be able to stop the run to be successful. Even though LSU is No. 1 in the conference in rush defense, Auburn is No. 3 and Auburn is about 80 yards ahead of anybody else in rushing offense. Playing at home and playing in the daytime is an advantage for Auburn.
Auburn quarterback Cameron Newton leads the nation in touchdown responsibility with 25 through seven games this season.
In other games of interest around the country:
Navy should test Notre Dame in the Meadowlands.
Wisconsin at Iowa--I like Iowa's defense and will pick the Hawkeyes to win at home against a Wisconsin team coming off a big home win over Ohio State.
Washington State at Stanford--Stanford has one of the top teams out West and will win again.
Stanford features one of the nation's top players in quarterback Andrew Luck.
Oklahoma at Missouri--This game will have a big impact on the Big 12 race. I think Oklahoma is improving and will win on the road against an unbeaten Missouri team I am not sure about how good it is.
Washington at Arizona--The Wildcats have just one loss so look for them to defend their home field and improve to 6-1.
