LAST WEEK (7-1)-----OVERALL (62-10)

Mississippi State @ Alabama – I almost, ALMOST, like MSU in this game. But cowbells don't travel too well, and the Tide will have redemption uppermost on their minds. Alabama 27 – MSU 17.

Louisiana-Monroe @ LSU – A virtual off day. LSU 45 – La-La 10.

South Carolina @ Florida – This is for all the marbles (at least in the SEC East). Florida had a virtual off week last week. The Gamecocks took a beating at Arkansas. Rested and at home is better than being beat up and on the road. Gators 24 – Gamecocks 17.

Georgia @ Auburn – The Plainsmen should polish off Georgia this week, getting ready for a week off before the showdown with the Crimson Tide. This might be a chance for an upset for Georgia, but the Dawgs haven't got it in them, and if Auburn wins, it punches their ticket for the Georgia Dome. Auburn 33 – UGA 20.

Texas-El Paso @ Arkansas – Another virtual off day. Arky 55 – UTEP 17.

Mississippi @ Tennessee – Mississippi and Tennessee, on paper, are evenly matched. UTK's new-found confidence in their quarterback, and the home field advantage, make this Tennessee's game to lose. The team that scores last will probably be the winner. UTK 44 – Mississippi 40.

Vanderbilt @ Kentucky – With all of Vanderbilt's injuries, they're lucky to be able to field a team. Their best running backs are out for the season, and Vandy's passing game is just a shade better than the worst in the country. Can't run + can't pass = can't win. Kentucky 45 – VU 13. Top Stories
