Alabama 17, Penn State 13 – The Crimson Tide does just enough to hold off the Nittany Lions.
Arkansas 57, New Mexico 7 – The second in a string of three cupcakes for the Hogs leading up to Bama.
Mississippi State 31, Auburn 24 – Auburn will rally late again, but this time it won’t be enough.
LSU 50, Northwestern State 3 – Yawn.
Ole Miss 34, Southern Illinois 10 – BYU wasn’t a bad team and Ole Miss will get better.
Florida 34, UAB 10 – UAB isn’t a total cupcake, but the Gators should be too much for the Blazers.
South Carolina 31, Georgia 27 – No, Georgia, the sky isn’t falling, it only feels like it.
Kentucky 21, Central Michigan 10 – Lost in last week’s laugher against Western Kentucky was a decent performance by the Wildcat defense. The Cats should win again, but could make it look ugly.
Tennessee 38, Cincinnati 37 – UT should have just enough offense to take care of the Bearcats.
Connecticut 24, Vanderbilt 23 – My preseason picks included Vandy winning this game. I just don’t see it happening.
