PETE'S PIGSKIN PROGNOSTICATIONS

Vanderbilt has a chance to go 5-0 for the first time since Franklin Roosevelt was President. Middle Tennessee State University stands in the way of that feat. Who will VandyMania's Pete Fox pick to win this game?

(28-6 overall)

UTK and LSU might be one of the most entertaining games of the year. LSU's second half collapse reminded me of Vandy's vs Rutgers. Suddenly, they couldn't do anything right and UTK couldn't do anything wrong. I guess the Great Orange Quarterback Controversy is over.

Florida @ Alabama – Neither of these teams seem to be playing up to their potential. The Crimson Tide playing at home, should have a slight edge, and the crowd should inspire them to excel. ‘Bama 27-24.

South Carolina @ Auburn – I don't see much of chance for the Chickens in this game. They haven't played well all year, and aren't likely to start at Auburn. Plainsmen 31-13.

LSU @ Mississippi State – Boy are the Bengals going to be mad after their second half debacle. Usually Vandy gets teams right after a devastating loss, but it's MSU's turn this time. LSU 49-14.

Ole Miss @ UTK – The Rebels are running on empty. Even if the team that played LSU in the first half show up for the Vols, Mississippi will take a beating. UTK 37-10

Middle Tennessee State University @ Vanderbilt – Vandy is full of confidence after being 4-0 for the first time in a long time. MTSU is 0-fer with only a moral victory at Alabama on their ledger. The Blue Raiders could make it close for a quarter, but Vandy will take card of business. VU 31-14
