Alabama A&M (7-3) @ Auburn (2-8)
Rumors are swirling around about Auburn head coach Gene Chizik’s future and some wonder if this team is distracted enough or doesn’t care enough to show up for this one. That’s probably why it’ll be closer than it should but Auburn still has more talent than Alabama A&M can find answers for.
Auburn 31, Alabama A&M 21
Jacksonville State (6-4) @ Florida (9-1)
Florida learned its lesson about messing around with teams it shouldn’t last weekend. That’s too bad for the J’ville Gamecocks as they will feel the brunt of the Gators' ire.
Florida 36, Jacksonville State 7
Georgia Southern (8-2) @ Georgia (9-1)
Georgia gets a game to practice against a triple-option team before the annual rival contest with Georgia Tech. Expect the Bulldogs to rest a bunch of the starters.
Georgia 44, Georgia State 21
Samford (7-3) @ Kentucky (1-9)
Is Kentucky bad enough to lose to Samford? Probably but I can’t pull the trigger on it knowing the talent differential between divisions and these programs.
Kentucky 28, Samford 16
Sam Houston State (8-2) @ Texas A&M (8-2)
Johnny Football’s stat line gets another boost this week (as if he needed it) and Kevin Sumlin’s first year looks even brighter for the Aggies.
Texas A&M 45, Sam Houston State 17
Western Carolina (1-9) @ Alabama (9-1)
Nick Saban should have his starters and most of the second string players take their weekly meal allowance and go catch an early matinee of Breaking Dawn Part 2. However, considering how the Crimson Tide has played the last two weeks, they’ll probably have to help clean up the stadium after thrashing this nobody.
Alabama 44, Western Carolina 0
Wofford (8-2) @ South Carolina (8-2)
South Carolina is finding ways to win without Marcus Lattimore and playing a decent in-state opponent can only help the team sharpen those skills heading into rivalry week and bowl season.
South Carolina 38, Wofford 15
