Upset Alert - Ole Miss @ 5 LSU This one may sound like a long shot and, really, it is. But Ole Miss can generate offense. QB Jordan Ta'amu has rolled out 1359 yds and 10 TDs. He will have to be on top of his game to succeed under the lights of Death Valley. But this is a long and heated rivalry and anything can happen. LSU will have their hands full.
Game of the Week - South Carolina @ Kentucky I wasn't expecting this one. But looking at an undefeated UK team led by a fiery Benny Snell facing a South Carolina team desperate for a win to salvage this season, this one has a lot on the line. Snell had 25 carries for 165 yds and 4 TDs against Mississippi State. A win on Saturday will keep Kentucky tied with UGA for the top spot in the SEC East. A loss and the remaining schedule could mean a frustrating end to a season that started with promise.

Upset Alert - Iowa State @ TCU Off back to back tough losses, and with 2 ranked teams waiting in the coming weeks, this is an easy one for the Horned Frogs to look over. The Cyclones played Oklahoma to 10 points a few weeks ago and are good for one solid upset a year usually. It’s brewing. I think this is the best shot at one this week
Game of the Week - 7 Stanford @ 8 Notre Dame This has dire playoff implications for both teams. A win here solidifies Notre Dame as a legitimate contender following gritty wins against less prestigious programs in the last few weeks. Half of the country is calling it a night about the time Stanford is usually kicking off and this is their chance to chow what they have on national TV in prime time to the entire college football world. It’s their chance to make a needed statement where everyone can see it.
