LAST WEEK (10-2)-----OVERALL (10-2)
Getting to know you, Getting to know all about you;
Getting to like you, Getting to hope you like me.
The traditional cupcakes: Western Kentucky @ Alabama - No contest. Tide 42 – WKU 10.
Louisiana-Monroe @ Arkansas - No contest. Arkansas 35 – LA-M 7
Washington @ LSU - No contest. LSU 31 – Washington 10
East Carolina @ South Carolina - East Carolina has given the Gamecocks fits on occasion over the last several years, but that time is past. USC 31 – ECU 21.
Georgia State @ UTK – Nolo contendere. UTK 49 – GSU 3.
And then there are the cupcake that aren't, any more:
Kent State @ Kentucky – The Mildcats looked pretty bad against Louisville last week, but in their defense, Louisville is appears to be a pretty good team. They have a chance to make amends and get on the plus side of the ledger this week. UK 24 – Kent State 14
UTEP @ Mississippi – Can the Bears be as bad a they looked last week? Maybe, but they should have enough to get past UTEP. Mississippi 17 UTEP 7.
And now for the real games:
Auburn @ Mississippi State – The Bulldogs are favored. My computer says there aren't enough cowbells in the world to make it happen. Auburn 21 – MSU 17
Florida @ Texas A&M – TAMU didn't get to play last week to get the kinks out. Florida played, and demonstrated plenty of kinks to work on. Does that make it a kinky game? The Opening game experience for the Gators will be the difference in this one. Florida 27 – TAMU 18
Georgia @ Missouri – I have no clue for this game, as Mizzou is a mystery team here in East. I trust the SEC refs to shaft the newcomers on general principles. Georgia 24 – Missouri 20.
Vanderbilt @ Northwestern - The importance of this game to Vanderbilt cannot be overstated. In the past, to be slightly favored in a game after a close loss to a powerful opponent has been the kiss of death. History is on the side of Same Ol' Vandy, but I'm with Henry Ford for now……"History is Bunk". VU 37 – NW 24
