Georgia (3-3) at Vanderbilt (2-4), 12:20 p.m.
Georgia's defense is bad and that bodes ill for Bulldogs defensive coordinator Willie Martinez. But is it bad enough that Vandy's inept offense could have some success? Georgia 24-13.
Mississippi State (2-4) at Middle Tennessee (3-2), 12:30 p.m.
Middle Tennessee has one victory this season against a Big Six school, at Maryland. Can the Blue Raiders make it two such victories this season? Mississippi State is the first SEC team to play at MTSU. Mississippi State 34-24.
Arkansas (3-2) at Florida (5-0), 3:30 p.m.
Talk about tough schedules: Florida is the fourth consecutive Arkansas opponent who was unbeaten at kickoff. Arkansas leads the SEC in pass offense (318.2 yards per game, with 15 TD passes), while Florida leads the nation in pass defense (115.2 ypg, with one TD pass allowed). Florida 38-21.
UAB (2-3) at Ole Miss (3-2), 7 p.m.
This is the first meeting between the teams, and Ole Miss' moribund offense should have the opportunity to wake up against UAB's weak defense. This is homecoming for the Rebels. Ole Miss 42-17.
Kentucky (2-3) at Auburn (5-1), 7:30 p.m.
Auburn will be looking to bounce back from its loss to Arkansas. Good news for the Tigers' mediocre defense is Kentucky can't throw the ball as well as the Hogs. A win makes Auburn bowl-eligible a season after the Tigers finished 5-7. Auburn 38-23.
N.C. State (3-3) at Boston College (4-2), 3:30 p.m.
N.C. State is coming off a thorough beating at the hands of Duke, and this is a must-win for the Wolfpack if they are to stay in the hunt in the Atlantic Division. BC also was embarrassed last week, but by Virginia Tech. BC has two division losses but will be in OK shape if it wins. N.C. State 27-20.
Virginia (2-3) at Maryland (2-4), 4 p.m.
Each coach is on the hot seat, though the Cavs' two-game winning streak has cooled the seat under Al Groh a bit. Virginia's defense has played well the past two weeks. Maryland 27-23.
Virginia Tech (5-1) at Georgia Tech (5-1), 6 p.m.
This is one of the biggest games of the season in the ACC. If the Hokies win, go ahead and pencil them in as Coastal Division champs. If the Yellow Jackets win, the division race becomes wide open between these two and Miami. Both teams run the ball well. Virginia Tech 27-21.
Miami (4-1) at Central Florida (3-2), 7:30 p.m.
This is a big one for UCF, which does not often get a Big Six team to play in Orlando. While Miami wants to avoid a loss, UCF is playing for much bigger stakes. Miami 35-17.
