North Texas State @ Arkansas – Another compass point, but the Mean Green has a special place in my heart for beating the Vols 7-0 in what? 1982? Unfortunately for them, that was then, this is now. Arkansas is beginning to act like a real team. Pigs by 30.
UTK @ Florida – The first of two no-clue games. Florida is favored by 2.5, but Tennessee had a week off to prepare (not that the Gators broke a sweat last week). I'm gonna pick the BIGORANGE by 3. That way I'll be pleased no matter what the outcome. If UTK wins, I got a difficult pick right...if they lose...well....
Alabama-Birmingham @ South Carolina – No contest. SC in a breeze by 31.
Vanderbilt @ TCU – It will be a loooooong night for the Commodores in Texas. You can't compete if you can't move the ball on offense, and VU proved that a stultifyingly conservative offense will not work against a good defense. TCU has a good defense, and Bobby Johnson and Ted Cain won't change their philosophies on offense, thus dooming the Black and Gold to another game of ineptitude. TCU 42 – VU 7.
