(7-0 last week; 40-5 overall)
Frequently in error; never in doubt.
Duke @ Alabama – If Temple is the worst BCS football team, Duke must be running a fairly close second. I can't imagine Alabama having much trouble running up the score on the Blue Devils. Alabama by 40.
LSU @ Florida – This is one of those games SEC-watchers love. It should be a real banger. Florida hasn't been dominatingly impressive against recent overmatched foes, while LSU has been on cruise control. LSU by 3.
Vanderbilt @ Mississippi – I've dithered all week about this. Before seeing the Commodores against Temple, I thought VU would take this game. After seeing them in action, Nickson is just not ready to be an SEC quarterback. The defensive injuries, coupled with the near-total breakdown of the kicking game convinces me that Ole Miss will do as so many other SEC teams have done in the past: realize that no matter how things have gone, VU is an eminently winnable game, and come out revitalized.
