Georgia v. Florida (Jacksonville) -- We beat Florida two years ago with Knowshon Moreno, a pass rush that pounded Tebow, and the infamous celebration penalty. All three of those things are gone now -- you can do that celebration thing only once for the full effect -- and Florida has won 16 out of the last 19. (Just for the record, before that, Georgia won 13 out of 16.)
Florida has sleepwalked through the middle part of its schedule. As Arkansas showed, a sleepwalking Florida team is beatable, and Georgia has the offense to steal one if that happens. But I can't imagine they'll sleepwalk against us, not after the last couple of years. Unless the Ambien kicks in... Gators 38, Dawgs 14.
South Carolina at Tennessee -- Too bad Tennessee is showing some muscle just in time for South Carolina's annual November swoon. Vols 28, Gamecocks 13.
Ole Miss at Auburn -- Underachiever vs. overachiever. So forget about being an NFL first-round pick -- if you were picking QBs just from the SEC, would Jevan Snead make the top three rounds? War Damn Eagles 30, Rebels 17.
Mississippi State at Kentucky -- Two feisty second-tier teams. My pick for fun game of the week. Wildcats 33, Bulldogs 28.
Georgia Tech at Vandy -- This would have been a game three or four years ago. Jackets 48, Commodores 14.
Arkansas 51, Eastern Michigan 21
LSU 44, Tulane 6

Ole Miss 24, Auburn 14: Another speedy, shifty RB to exploit Auburn's weak linebackers.
Florida 24, Georgia 14: Is Mark Richt in trouble yet?
USC 17, Tennessee 14: Not buying the new and improved Crompton.
Georgia Tech 24, Vanderbilt 10: Wish these two would swap conferences.
Miss State 27, Kentucky 24: Still trying to figure out how Auburn killed those Bulldogs.
Arkansas 41, Eastern Michigan 10
LSU 38, Tulane 3
