GAME OF THE WEEK
Alabama at LSU, Saturday, 8 p.m. ET, CBS
Basically, all of the day's action is just a prelude to this game. We've got two games against I-AA teams and three games that should be pretty big mismatches. A loss here basically eliminates LSU from division contention, while a win would be the first step towards actually getting the crazy five-way tie at 6-2 scenario. The night magic at Tiger Stadium came through once already with LSU's defeat of Ole Miss. Can it do it again?
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8
Georgia at Kentucky, noon ET, ESPN
The Bulldogs have to get up off the mat and try not to let the Gators beat them two weeks in a row. UK is good enough to hang around here, and while the Wildcats won't be able to bulldoze the UGA front, they can challenge the secondary with the pass. It's one more time around without Todd Gurley, and Georgia should have enough.
Presbyterian at Ole Miss, noon ET, SEC Network
I can't wait to see how far the Rebels fall next week as punishment for scheduling this game.
Texas A&M at Auburn, 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS
If Kyle Allen can't perform better than he did last week, this will end up one of the dullest CBS undercards for the LSU-Bama game in recent memory.
UT Martin at Mississippi State, 4 p.m. ET, SEC Network
The midday SEC Network slot has really turned out to be a dumping ground.
Florida at Vanderbilt, 7:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network
After half an hour, even a lot of the die hards in these fan bases might be flipping over to CBS.
