Here is a look at some potentially good games outside the SEC this week:
Arizona State vs. Notre Dame--This should be a good matchup. The Sun Devils are 3-1 and Notre Dame is 3-2. Arizona State has been strong on offense and that should be the difference in this Saturday night game being played at the home field of the Dallas Cowboys.
Ohio State at Northwestern--This will probably be a close game for a while, but I think the Buckeyes will stay undefeated.
Taking a look at this week's SEC games.
Georgia at Tennessee--Georgia will win with no problem because the Bulldogs are so much better than the Vols playing on the road won't be a factor.
Arkansas at Florida--I think this game could be closer than some many expect, but I am going with the Gators to win at home.
Missouri at Vanderbilt--I like Missouri's quarterback and the fact that the Tigers have been solid on both sides of the ball during their 4-0 start against non-conference opponents. Vandy should provide a bigger challenge than Missouri's previous opponents have, but the Commodores aren't playing as well as they did last year so I expect Missouri to win in Nashville on Saturday night.
Ole Miss at Auburn--For the Tigers containing running back Jeff Scott will be a big deal. He has uncanny strength for a little guy and is a big-play threat with his outstanding speed.
It will also be important to improve the execution, offensively and defensively, especially with two weeks to prepare for this game. I have seen teams come out and play poorly after an off-week that looked like they would have been better off without one.
I think these teams are fairly evenly matched. Auburn has the homefield advantage and I think the Tigers will take advantage of that and pick up their fourth win of the season, but it should be a real test for Gus Malzahn's team.
