GAME OF THE WEEK
Ole Miss at Auburn, 7:00 pm ET, ESPNU
There are two games that are going to go a long way in helping sort out divisional order this weekend. This is one of them. It also features two head coaches who like uptempo offense. It could be an entertaining shootout, but it's too bad it got hidden away on ESPNU.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5
Georgia State at Alabama, 12:21 pm ET, SEC Network
For the second straight week, the SEC Network game looks like a dud. Unlike last week with South Alabama and Tennessee, it probably will be a dud.
Georgia at Tennessee, 3:30 pm ET, CBS
Will this be a letdown game for Georgia? Will Tennessee's defense get a single stop that isn't an unforced error by Georgia?
Arkansas at Florida, 7:00 pm ET, ESPN2
Two teams that like to do the same thing: run, run, run. Look for this one to be over in about two hours.
LSU at Mississippi State, 7:00 pm ET, ESPN
The Bulldogs have a lot to prove, and this could be a hangover game for LSU. The Tigers will probably still win it, but it could be harrowing.
Missouri at Vanderbilt, 7:30 pm ET, CSS
This is the other game that will help sort out the middle of a division. I didn't pick it as game of the week, though, because it doesn't have a ranked team and I can't pick the CSS game as game of the week.
Kentucky at South Carolina, 7:30 pm ET, FSN
When the line on this opened at Carolina by 21, Mark Stoops said the bookies didn't set it high enough. The bookies didn't take his advice. It's still at 21.
