Auburn 55, Chattanooga 10
Georgia (4-5) vs. Idaho State (1-7)
Yeah Georgia is probably demoralized after losing to Florida (though they should be used to it by now). Idaho State hasn't won a game since early September. The Bulldogs cruise in this one and look ahead to a season-making game against Auburn next week. The race for homecoming queen will be more competitive than this one.
Georgia 45, Idaho State 13
Kentucky (4-5) vs. Charleston Southern (2-6)
Kentucky's thing this year has been to not start playing well until the second half. That will actually work this week against the Buccaneers who play like the creamsicle namesake from the 1970s era NFL. Big Blue gets win number five with ease.
Kentucky 38, Charleston Southern 9
Memphis (1-7) vs. Tennessee (2-6)
Memphis is terrible. They give up points at a steeper rate than Tennessee does and the Tigers offense goes in reverse as much as forward. The Volunteers could field a team of actual volunteers from what's in the stands and still win by two touchdowns.
Tennessee 44, Memphis 10
LSU (7-1) vs. Alabama (7-1)
This one has the makings of a smashmouth, down and dirty street fight. Both teams thrive on defense and ball control. LSU needs this win and some help to get back in the SEC West race. Alabama needs to win out to return to Atlanta. Both offenses have gone in the shell during the season (though LSUs only peaked out of the shell for one game it seems). Normally home field advantage would play a bigger part but Alabama has won in Baton Rouge and has been good on the road save the trip to Columbia earlier this season. Alabama's offensive issues are solvable because they still have the best two running backs in the league to lean on and the passing game has grown leaps and bounds since last season. LSU's defense has improved but the offense is worse on the front lines and at the quarterback position. That's advantage Alabama, who will be able to get pressure and disrupt LSU's chances to reach the playmakers on the outside. Couple that with a more consistent offense and it gives the Crimson Tide the edge and the win.
Alabama 23, LSU 14
