Week 5 Review

Another 8-0 week pushes the record to 47-3… 

1) Florida 24 Kentucky 7 [Prediction: Florida 34 Kentucky 10]

  • Pre-game: “This isn’t a rivalry, it’s an annual beat down.”
  • Post-game: Man, I bet this was an exciting game to watch.

2) Missouri 41 Arkansas State 19 [Prediction: Missouri 41 Arkansas State 21]

  • Pre-game: “People are starting to crow about the Tigers, but it’s still a little early for that.”
  • Post-game:  Who’s the only other undefeated SEC team besides Alabama?  You guessed it, Missouri.

3) South Carolina 28 Central Florida 25 [Prediction: South Carolina 28 Central Florida 17]

  • Pre-game: “It’s been a quiet couple of weeks for the Gamecocks.  UCF is not push over, but Carolina should take care of business.”
  • Post-game:  Gamecock quarterback Conner Shaw is lost to injury in this close win over the Knights.

4) Tennessee 31 South Alabama 24 [Prediction: Tennessee 38 South Alabama 13]

  • Pre-game: “Think the Vols are desperate for a turnaround?  They dusted off Phil Fulmer himself for a pep talk this week.”
  • Post-game:  I guess the Fulmer pep talk really had the Vols fired up.

5) Vanderbilt 52 UAB 24 [Prediction: Vanderbilt 37 UAB 9]

  • Pre-game: “I’m sorry, but this game has yuck written all over it.”
  • Post-game:  I still feel the same way.

6) Texas A&M 45 Arkansas 33 [Prediction: Texas A&M 45 Arkansas 24]

  • Pre-game: “Vegas has the Aggies around three point favorites.  What do they know that we don’t?”
  • Post-game:  I think the actual spread was more like 13, but the Hogs made things interesting.

7) Alabama 25 Ole Miss 0 [Prediction: Alabama 41 Ole Miss 27]

  • Pre-game: “If the Tide’s offense is ready, this game won’t be close.”
  • Post game: Twenty-seven points?  What was I thinking?

8) Georgia 44 LSU 41 [Prediction: Georgia 31 LSU 24]

  • Pre-game: “Home field advantage (plus Aaron Murray and Todd Gurley) does it for the Dawgs.”
  • Post-game:  LSU leaves too much time on the clock and Georgia wins late.
