Cupcake Wars: French Puns from Mississippi and Yankee Social Media

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Cupcake games: Athletics directors love the sugary sweet treats but fans despise them. So we're not going to give the teams that play them credit in our previews, instead offering a fun fact about the cupcake in question. Consider it our silent and likely futile protest

A light edition of Cupcake Wars this week, as against my better judgment I will not include Ole Miss-Texas. Don't worry; we'll make up for it next week.

Southern Miss vs. Arkansas, 12:21 p.m. ET, SEC Network | Remember when you wouldn't dare put this game in Cupcake Wars? I mean, we're talking about within the last decade. The Golden Eagles weren't knocking over SEC opponents left and right, but they would pull the upset every now and then. But I digress. Southern Miss has featured several mascots over the years. Including Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest. Now it's a Golden Eagle costume named "Seymour d'Campus." Really. Arkansas 43, Southern Miss 13

Kent State vs. LSU, 7 p.m. ET, ESPNU | Their athletics department website has a page of social media posts that it calls the Flash Mob. It's, um, special. LSU 57, Kent State 14

Record on all game picks this season: 21-4 straight up; [REDACTED] against the spread. Okay, I'm 7-10-1. This is one of the reasons I don't gamble on sports.
