It's SEC week in college football which equals fun (unless the score is 3-2).
5. Georgia Bulldogs at Arizona State Sun Devils
So Arizona St. lost to a bad UNLV team last weekend, but... maybe they were looking past the Rebs and at the Bulldogs. Right? So maybe this game will be a good one right? Probably not, but hey you never know when teams have to travel cross country to play, I mean UT lost to UCLA and look at how they fared last weekend. The Pick: UGA by 2
4. Wake Forest Demon Deacons at Florida St. Seminoles
Wake Forest is under the radar (probably cause the ACC sucks) and no one has any expectations for Florida St. after all of their off the field incidents this offseason and Bobby Bowden's senile tendencies. This matchup is amongst the biggest for the ACC Atlantic of the season and the winner gets a leg up on the trip to the title game. The Pick: FSU by 11
3. Alabama Crimson Tide at Arkansas Razorbacks
It's Bobby Petrino's first big game for the Razorbacks and he gets another carpetbagger to face off against in Nick Saban. The Razorbacks avoided their first loss last weekend thanks to Hurricane Ike and will be hard pressed to avoid a loss this weekend, but... for some reason I think Alabama is gonna choke. The Pick: Backs by 2
2. Florida Gators at Tennessee Volunteers
Should anybody have been surprised that UT choked against UCLA? I mean they choke every year. But then again they seemingly fight back every year with some clutch in conference victories. Those clutch victories usually come against Georgia though and not Florida and Tim Tebow who dropped 59 on the Vols last year. The Pick: Florida by 10.
1. Lousiana State Tigers at Auburn Tigers
Outside of Alabama making a serious run at the SEC West and knocking off one of these two clubs, this game is essentially for the SEC West Title Birth. After Auburn throttled Miss St. last week 3-2 they have to be brimming with confidence. LSU may have questions at quarterback but they have a better coaching staff and better athletes they'll find a way to get it done. The Pick: LSU by 3.
