All Times Central
#10 Georgia (-10) at Auburn- 11:30 AM on Raycom Sports
Bunkhouse picks: Bulldogs 38-10
Why? Georgia has owned Auburn the last 2 seasons, and the offensive woes won't allow Auburn to get close in this one as the Tiger defense gave up after the Vanderbilt game.
Louisiana-Monroe at Ole Miss (-22.5)- 1:00
Bunkhouse picks: Rebels 27-10
Why? Houston Nutt has his players prepped for a "trap game"...with good reason. The Rebel offense will keep LA-Mon at arms length, while the Rebel defense camps out in the Warhawk backfield all day.
#25 South Carolina at #4 Florida (-21)- 2:30 PM on CBS
Bunkhouse picks: Gators 31-24
Why? The Ole Ball Coach always has something for Florida when he plays them, especially in Gainesville. He'll have trouble getting it done against and physical and determined Gator team this afternoon.
Mississippi State at #1 Alabama (-21.5)- 6:45 PM on ESPN
Bunkhouse picks: Crimson Tide 28-7
Why? Saban coached teams don't commit a lot of penalties or turnovers...if it's against State's bottom-shelf talent, it won't be close for long.
Troy at #20 LSU (-16.5) - 7:00
Bunkhouse picks: Tigers 41-17
Why? Troy usually puts up points, while LSU's offense is looking for answers in game 10....which is not good. Troy just doesn't have near enough to keep it close at the end.
Vanderbilt at Kentucky (-3.5) - 7:00 on ESPN2
Bunkhouse picks: Wildcats 23-14
Why? Kentucky is playing some good football, while Vanderbilt hasn't won a game in a month. The offense is the difference...Kentucky has one, Vandy doesn't. The Commodore defense will keep it close enough, but won't be able to deliver over 60 minutes.
