3:30 pm #4 Florida (-6 1/2, 57) at #21 Texas A&M - Florida has their offense rolling with a 38-24 win over South Carolina last week after hammering Mississippi, 51-35, in week four, but the defense hasn't been up to the task and that may play well into the Aggies' scheme.

A&M struggled to a victory over Vanderbilt, 17-12, then were demolished by #2 Alabama, 52-24, so it's tough to get a read on how good the defense is, though from the looks of things, they're not very capable.

If the Gators can muster up a number of third down stops their potent offense should carry the day.

Coin Flip: Texas A&M

Prediction: Gators 35 Aggies 21

3:30 pm #14 Tennessee at #3 Georgia (-12 1/2, 42 1/2) - Both teams are unbeaten and have solid potential going forward, but Georgia seems to be on a route to a national championship seeding, having topped Auburn, 27-6 in their opener and traveled to Arkansas last week to put down the Razorbacks with ease, 37-10.

The Bulldog defense may be the best in the nation, so Tennessee will be fortunate to find the end zone more than once in this contest.

Tennessee's wins at South Carolina, 31-27, and at home over Missouri, 35-12, were good showing for the offense, the Missouri game a solid defensive effort as well.

Coin Flip: Tennessee

Prediction: Bulldogs 31 Volunteers 13

3:30 pm Texas Tech at #24 Iowa State (-12 1/2, 64 1/2) - An intriguing match-up, despite the fact that Texas Tech hasn't won a conference game yet, falling in overtime to Texas, 63-56, then losing last week at Kansas State, 31-21.

Iowa State may turn out to be the class of the Big 12, despite their opening week blemish, a 31-14 loss to the University of Louisiana (not LSU) out of the Sun Belt.

Power conference teams are simply not supposed to lose games to Sun Belt foes, then tear up Oklahoma. It's just not supposed to work that way, yet, that's what's happened, as the Cyclones held home field last week with a 37-30 win over the Sooners. Prior to that, they won a close call at TCU, 37-34. In the comfort of home, the Cyclones should be able to solidify their defense against the Red Raiders. The offense is already clicking pretty well.

Coin Flip: Iowa State

Prediction: Cyclones 44 Red Raiders 24

4:00 pm Arkansas at #13 Auburn (-14, 46 1/2) - OK, the SEC is competitive. In the first week of play, Mississippi State stunned LSU, the reigning national champions, while Arkansas was being humbled by Georgia, 37-10. Last week, Arkansas put a road whipping on the Bulldogs, 21-14, and now they're two touchdown dogs at Auburn.

As for the Tigers, the celebration over their 29-13 win past Kentucky didn't last long, because they went into Georgia and got burned, 27-6. So, here we are. Is Arkansas any good? Are the Tigers for real? This looks like a mid-level game between two hungry squads that may go down to the wire. Of course, either could run away with the thing, so liking the points may not be a bad choice.

Coin Flip: Arkansas

Prediction: Tigers 24 Razorbacks 21

6:00 pm #2 Alabama (-23, 66) at Ole Miss - Alabama is supposed to beat everybody, every year, and they usually put a hurting on neighboring Ole Miss. Last year, Alabama 59, Ole Miss 31. 2018: 62-7, Tide. 2017: 66-3, 'Bama. Sensing a pattern?

Matt Corral holds down the starting QB job for the Rebels and he's managed to guide the offense to 35 points in a 51-35 loss to Florida and 42, in an overtime squeaker, 42-41, last week at Kentucky. Corral's job is safe, even if he gets punched by the Tide this weekend, but the defense needs to do better. Against Alabama, that's a tall order.

Coin Flip: Ole Miss

Prediction: Crimson Tide 48 Rebels 19

7:30 pm #7 Miami at #1 Clemson (-14, 63 1/2) - This one figures to be awesome because nobody is really sure just how good the Hurricanes are.

Thus far, Miami has dusted UAB, 31-14, ripped Louisville, 47-34, and dumped Florida State, 52-10. They can score from anywhere on the field and the defense continues to improve.

Of course, Clemson is #1 and as solid as ever. The Tigers have rolled up a 3-0 mark with wins over Wake Forest, Citadel, and Virginia, all rather lopsided. Miami is getting two touchdowns and they're looking to make a statement. A monster upset is in the making here.

Coin Flip: Clemson

Prediction: Hurricanes 41 Tigers 38

7:30 pm Florida State at #5 Notre Dame (-21, 52) - As mentioned above, the Seminoles were ripped apart by Miami two weeks back and didn't look very good. They took care of business last week with a 41-24 win over Jacksonville State, proving nothing. Against 2-0 Notre Dame, coming off a 52-0 victory over South Florida two weeks ago, the Seminoles are in big trouble. It's seldom they are three touchdown underdogs, but, being on the road against a powerhouse like the Irish just is too daunting.

Coin Flip: Notre Dame

Prediction: Fighting Irish 45 Seminoles 10
