Team Comment
FSU Game against NC State is critical, Gators lie in wait
Maryland Gator Bowl is worst case scenario; should beat Tigers
NC State ACC title hopes are gone, looks like Peach vs. Tennessee
Georgia Tech Must beat Duke; upset of Dawgs will push them to Peach
Virginia Cavs ending schedule will probably hurt bowl chances
Clemson Tigers need to win out for Peach
Wake Forest Wake needs Clemson to slip up against USC
Georgia Controls own destiny; but Auburn knock them off again?
Florida Better hope Georgia loses, cause they played horribly at Vandy
Tennessee Vols need a win over UK or hello Shreveport
Miami Canes control their own destiny for national title, only Pitt in the way
Virginia Tech Late season meltdown could mean San Fran
USC Win over UF = bowl Lose = no bowl
Auburn Must beat Tide and Dawgs for trip to Atlanta
Alabama Can ruin Auburn's and LSU's SEC title hopes with wins
Vanderbilt Can ruin Florida's SEC title hopes with win; but not likely
Kentucky Loss to LSU means nothing for bowls cause Cats can't go
Arkansas Hogs can still win West somehow, but must beat LSU and State
Mississippi St Can only kill Ole Miss' chances for a bowl
Ole Miss Rebs might be left out two years in a row, they need 7-5 bad
LSU West leader had better not slip against Bama or Arkansas, Cotton likely without SEC Crown
Duke Game with UNC will be ugly
UNC Game with Duke will be ugly
