Vanderbilt at Army, noon
This is the easiest game left on Vandy's schedule. But the Commodores' offense is not very good. Army's triple-option offense will test Vandy's linebacking corps. Vanderbilt 24-16
Auburn at Arkansas, noon
Auburn has been surprisingly good on offense but surprisingly mediocre on defense. Arkansas has a solid offense but a poor defense. That means the scoreboard operator should be busy. The road team has won the past four and six of the past seven. Auburn 35-34
Georgia at Tennessee, 12:20 p.m.
This is a huge game for Georgia as it attempts to remain in this season's SEC race. The Bulldogs have won in three of their past four in Knoxville. The Vols have to get a big game from running back Montario Hardesty if they are to win. Georgia 23-17
Houston at Mississippi State, 12:30 p.m.
Houston had been riding high, but it was pounded by UTEP last week and you have to wonder about the Cougars' psyche. Houston is trying to move to 4-0 in non-conference games, and it has not won all its non-conference games since 1990. Houston 42-37
Alabama at Ole Miss, 3:30 p.m.
This is huge for Ole Miss. A loss means the Rebels were a top-10 fraud. Alabama has won 19 of the past 22 meetings and leads the series 45-9-2. This will be the ninth meeting in Oxford. Alabama 24-14
Florida at LSU, 8 p.m.
Forget all the mystery about whether Tim Tebow will play. The determining factor in this game will be Florida's defense. Florida 20-14
Boston College at Virginia Tech, noon,
This could be a preview of another ACC championship game matchup. That noise you heard? That was every ACC administrator going to his or her knees to make sure that doesn't happen. Virginia Tech 24-13
Georgia Southern at North Carolina, 3:30 p.m.
North Carolina's offense has been abysmal of late, so a visit from an FCS program might be the needed tonic. An aside to Butch Davis: How about recruiting some talented offensive linemen? North Carolina 38-7
Indiana at Virginia, 3:30 p.m.
This one matches an ACC team vs. a Big Ten team, so why isn't it on TV? Oh, that's right - it's an ACC bottom-feeder vs. a Big Ten bottom-feeder. Virginia 23-20
Duke at N.C. State, 4 p.m.
Because basketball practice starts in a week, Duke fans could not care less about football. The flipside: Because basketball practice starts in a week, NCSU fans start to care even more about football. N.C. State 37-17
Maryland at Wake Forest, 6:30 p.m.
The Terps are the only ACC Atlantic Division team that are unbeaten in conference play, which makes this an important game. Wake Forest 24-16
Florida A&M at Miami, 7 p.m.
This is the seventh meeting in the series. FAMU won the first, on a field goal by Vince Coleman (yes, that Vince Coleman) in 1979. Since then, Miami has won six in a row by an average score of 51-5. Miami 51-7
Georgia Tech at Florida State, 8 p.m.
As poorly as it has started, Florida State still has a shot at the Atlantic Division title, making this a must-win game. Tech ended a 12-game losing streak to Florida State with a victory last season. Georgia Tech 31-27
