Alright then, I will be the first to say it:

LSU will beat Auburn tomorrow. (Me? A homer? No way!)

As for the other two: Miami in a closer game than most think, and Florida over Tennessee.

Everyone is picking UF but ignoring hte fact that we've sucked on the road lately. Hopefully we get that turned around this year but I think it will be close, and if it's a blowout it will probably be UF on the losing end of it.

Btw deeray, Tennessee lost only one defensive player. The DT is playing and doctor's say his play shouldn't be affected at all. It's just the type of injury that is going to get really bad if it doesn't get fixed, so he's waiting until after the UF game to have surgery.

The DT actually has lots of pain right now. He won't get further injured by playing one more day however he is playing with a great amount of pain at the moment. Fulmer said he could play anywhere from 5 plays to the entire game... somehow I see him playing 10 plays tops, I think he's just an emotional lift for the team and nothing more.

Also, don't forget that UT lost their other starting CB in the preseason.

I'm way looking forward to both UT-Florida and Auburn-LSU, as I expect both to be close. (Although it's really not the same without Spurrier saying "You can't spell Citrus without UT" or something.)

My Buckeyes get the "day off" (at home vs. Cincinnati) so I can sleep in and then just kick back and watch the day unfold.

I love the NFL, but it's hard to beat a great Saturday of College Football,

I wish everyone good luck with their teams tomorrow (except of course That State Up North).

Happy Huntin' All! ;-D

Way off on the Louisville game, but on point with Auburn. That was a great game. Typical SEC football at 7-3.

I don't know if that was typical SEC football. Both offenses looked bad and it wasn't all the Ds.

Really? I only caught the very end and bits and pieces during Michigan/ND commercials, but it looked like it was mostly good defense to me.

Great defense by both teams. LSU contained Irons most of the game (save the one touchdown drive) and pressured Cox all day long, sacking him on numerous occasions.

Auburn shut down the LSU running game but Russell was able to pile up 267 yards through the air on 20-of-35 passing. No turnovers by LSU.

Funny thing, the refs ended up winning the game.

Russell lost the game for them. Had he thrown the ball away they would have had time for 2 more plays and probably could have scored, plus he had 2 open looks at the endzone and missed in the game. Don't blame the refs when u lose, there could were many opportunities to win the game and LSU didnt make them happen.

I agree that Russell played poorly down the stretch. You cannot take a sack with under a minute to play when you team has no timeouts, and you are out of the pocket. Throw the ball away.

However, the refs can and should be blamed at least partially. They blew a number of calls (pass interferece on Lafell in the endzone in the first half, the Jacob Hester catch-and-fumble of fourth-and-one in Auburn territory, the pass interference call near the end of the game ...). If it was just one call, like two years ago, then maybe you can let it slide. But when it amounts to a number of GAME CHANGING calls, that's when you can start placing the honus on the human error factor. Very sad loss for LSU, Auburn played a great game to take nothing away from them, but the referees were noticeable and impacted the game.
