Ole Miss, State, USM picked to win

We were undefeated Georgia, which was ranked No. 12 playing at Ole Miss, which was twice defeated and ranked No. 23. After opening at 2, Ole Miss was a 7-point favorite. Evidently, someone has looked at the schedules. Alabama and Florida State are the Ole Miss losses. Georgia’s two previous victories were by 2 over Nicholls state and 1 over Missouri. Georgia will send an 18-year old quarterback to the game, Ole Miss will send a 22 year-old. Ole Miss is home. Ole Miss 31, Georgia 27. After a disappointing comeback at LSU, Mississippi State is now ranked 1-2. They will play 1-2 UMass at Foxboro. On the road, the Bulldogs are 22 points favorites. Since the Bulldogs have a quarterback problem, I don’t know if I would make State a 22 point favorite over any other team, not even the Minutemen. While I want State to win, I wouldn’t give up the points. Massachusetts 14, State 27 Southern Miss opens conference play in UTEP. It’s a long trip and a difficult place to play. The 11.5-point favourite is the 2-1 Golden Eagles over the 1-2 Miners who are last in the country in turnover differential. This is a game USM should win, and perhaps win easily, if they don’t allow UTEP to create a lot in this one. UTEP has only created one turnover throughout the season. USM 34, UTEP 20, Texas A & M is a 6-point favorite over Arkansas in a battle between unbeaten SEC Western Division teams. This week’s upset: Arkansas 28, Texas A & M 26,. Auburn is the 3-point favorite for LSU. This seems to be about right. Auburn 17, LSU 20 At home, Tennessee is a 5-point favorite over the Florida Gators. Both teams have not lost, but neither team has been particularly impressive. This is a weak nod to Florida 26, Tennessee 27. Vanderbilt is a 7-point underdog in Western Kentucky. Jeff Brohm is doing an amazing coaching job. WKU lost to Alabama in its only loss. Western is 27-20, which I love. Wait! Are you sure? Why is Kentucky favored over South Carolina Why? South Carolina 24-20. Other: Grambling 31, Alcorn 20, Arkansas-Pine Bluff 27, Jackson State 24. Prairie View 27, MVSU 21. Rick Cleveland is Mississippi Today’s sports columnist.
