All times Eastern

3:30 pm #8 Florida at #5 Georgia (-3 1/2, 52 1/2) - This game is almost certain to determine the winner of the SEC East division. Both teams have one loss but neither possess national championship qualities. Georgia fell at Alabama, 41-24, October 17. Last week they prevailed at Kentucky, 14-3.

Florida lost at Texas A&M, 41-38, on October 10. They turned things around last week, pounding Missouri, 41-17. The Gators can score the ball, averaging 42 points per contest, but are allowing 29.3 points per game, putting them at a distinct disadvantage. Georgia gives up 16.2 on average, while scoring at a 29.2 per game clip.

Lots of crosswinds here. The game is played at it's usual neutral location in Jacksonville, Florida. About 40,000 fans are expected. It's Georgia's third straight game away from home, but the Bulldogs defense should carry the day.

Coin Flip: Georgia

Prediction: Bulldogs 30 Gators 24

3:30 pm Houston at #6 Cincinnati (-13 1/2, 55) - The Bearcats have proven to be not only the team to beat in the AAC, but one of the best teams in the country, with a ferocious defense that is allowing just 12 points per game.

Cincinnati's last two games proved just how good they are, dusting SMU, 42-13, and Memphis, 49-10, shutting down two of the best offenses in the conference.

Houston is just 2-2, with losses to BYU (43-26) and, last week, UCF (44-21). They were on the road at BYU, at home against UCF. Judging those losses, they just don't stack up well against the Bearcats.

Coin Flip: Cincinnati

Prediction: Bearcats 38 Cougars 13

4:00 pm #14 Oklahoma State (-12 1/2, 46) at Kansas State - In conference play, the Cowboys are 3-1. The Wildcats are 4-1. Both suffered losses last week, Oklahoma State fell to Texas, 42-34, in overtime. West Virginia had its way with Kansas State, 37-10.

Oddsmakers seem to believe that the wheels have fallen off Kansas State's wagon, but the Oklahoma defense was shown to be vulnerable in their loss to the Longhorns. K-State has home field, and while it's easy to see how the Cowboys could regroup and put the hammer down on the Wildcats, that's not necessarily a given. In their loss to West Virginia, which was on the road, QB Will Howard threw three interceptions, one a pick-six. He should bounce back from that effort and allow the Wildcats to keep this close.

Coin Flip: Oklahoma State

Prediction: Cowboys 34 Wildcats 24

7:00 pm #7 Texas A&M (-10, 58 1/2) at South Carolina - Statistically, this pair is very close, but the Gamecocks are 2-3 while the Aggies have run up a 4-1 mark, the lone defeat a 52-24 setback at Alabama. Since then, the Aggies defeated Florida, Mississippi State and Arkansas by reasonable margins and appear to have more than sufficient offense to overwhelm the Gamecocks.

South Carolina's wins came over Vandy and Auburn, the losses to Tennessee, Florida and lastly, at LSU, 52-24. They've had a week off to recover, but they seem destined to finish the season with a very checkered record.

Coin Flip: South Carolina

Prediction: Aggies 42 Gamecocks 23

7:30 pm #1 Clemson (-5 1/2, 52) at #4 Notre Dame - Top-ranked Clemson will be without QB Trevor Lawrence, who has been ruled out with COVID for a second straight week, but backup, D.J. Uiagalelei has a game under his belt, and brought the Tigers back fro a 28-13 half time deficit last week against Boston College, going 30-41 for 342 yards and 2 TDs in a 34-28 victory.

Credit Clemson's defense for clamping down and holding the Eagles scoreless in the second half to keep Clemson unbeaten at 7-0.

Notre Dame has plowed through their ACC schedule thus far, running up a 6-0 record. The only close game the Irish have played was a 12-7 win over Louisville. The combined record of the teams Notre Dame has defeated - none of them ranked - is 12-28. They're not going to run all over Clemson. In fact, Clemson is likely to run all over them.

Coin Flip: Notre Dame

Prediction: Tigers 37 Fighting Irish 17

7:30 pm Stanford at #12 Oregon (-10, 51) - First game of the season for these PAC-10 rivals, so there's little to go on, except that the pollsters have the Ducks at #12 without them ever taking the field.

Stanford went 4-8 last season and lost at home to the Ducks, 21-6. Oregon compiled a 12-2 mark, winning the PAC-12 championship over Utah, 37-15 and taking out Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl, 28-27. They lose QB Justin Herbert, who is now starting for the LA Chargers in the NFL, but, as is usually the case in Oregon, the recruiting class should be rock solid.

Coin Flip: Oregon

Prediction: Ducks 42 Cardinal 13
