Cupcakes. Everybody plays them. But we don't want to give anybody credit for doing so. That's why we're lumping them all into one small post and giving you a fun fact about any bad midmajors or FCS teams playing SEC teams each week. Call it our silent, and likely futile, protest. All games are Saturday unless otherwise noted.
Western Kentucky at Alabama, 3:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network: The Hilltoppers' eponymous hill is 232 feet high, which is roughly the number of points Alabama could score in this game if it were trying. Alabama 50, Western Kentucky 3
Georgia State at Tennessee, 4 p.m. ET, PPV / ESPN3: Bill Curry is the head coach of the Panthers. I have walked through the GSU campus many times; this is literally the most interesting thing about the whole college. Tennessee 63, Georgia State 0
UTEP at Ole Miss, 7 p.m. ET, FSN: The Miners once fired a donkey who was their mascot. Really. It's hard to put this game in this post, because I think Ole Miss will lose -- but, oh well. UTEP 27, Ole Miss 24
Louisiana Monroe at Arkansas, 7 p.m. ET, ESPNU: Like the Rebels, the Warhawks have a grove. It's a pecan grove. Arkansas 48, ULM 14
Kent State at Kentucky, 7:30 p.m. ET, CSS: These two teams played a 21-inning baseball game in June. This one shouldn't take quite that long to resolve. Kentucky 23, Kent State 13
