Sorry we’re late! We’ve been away and without a computer! Yes, we know that you beat Clemson, Georgia fans! Yes, we know that you beat South Carolina, Texas A&M! We know that Steve Spurrier’s found some humility, Florida scored more points than they did in one season and the Derek Mason era at Vanderbilt hasn’t actually been auspicious.

And as for this week…

GEORGIA AT SOUTH CAROLINA

This week, Georgia goes down to South Carolina in a game that’s going to be a war. Georgia fans expecting to win by a mile? You must be joking. South Carolina’s fanbase is going to be whipped up to play the Dawgs, and a little confidence is back after beating Eastern Carolina last week. If Georgia can run the ball with Mssrs. Gurley, Marshall and Chubb — and South Carolina can’t stop ’em- then the ‘Cocks are in trouble.

PREDICTION: Georgia by 3 in a classic. 

TENNESSEE AT OKLAHOMA

OU’s really, really good this year. Trevor Knight a great QB, and the Sooners look strong in defense. If Tennessee can get the time to throw the ball and Marquez North gets a few receptions, the Vols might have hope. Otherwise? Nada.

PREDICTION: Close? Nope. Oklahoma by 21

RICE AT TEXAS A&M

Last year A&M really struggled with Rice’s triple option offense. They really did. But can Rice stop the freight train commonly known as A&M’s unreal offense? Er….

PREDICTION: No. Texas A&M by 28

ARKANSAS AT TEXAS TECH

Big question: Will Arkansas be able to deal with Tech’s offense? And will Tech be able to deal with Alex Collins, the ferocious running back for Arkansas? This could well be the funnest game of the week.

PREDICTION: Close, but no cigar. Arkansas wins by 7 in a classic. 

UCF AT MISSOURI

Some people predicted that Missouri would struggle at Toledo, but they didn’t, winning out 49-28. Maty Mauk already looks in Heisman form….the kid’s got a cannon, folks. UCF should have beaten Penn State in Ireland but they didn’t, losing by 2.

PREDICTION: This one’s going to be closer than expected..for a while. Mizzou by 14.

KENTUCKY AT FLORIDA

The battle of the unbeatens! Mark Stoops and Will Muschamp for Joint Coach Of The Year! But seriously, both teams have played a total of NOBODY to start off the season, so this will be a measuring stick of a) Kentucky’s improvement and b) If Florida really has improved. The Swamp ought to be noisy for this game (it’s at night, by the way).

PREDICTION: Gator chomp. Florida by 21

SOUTHERN MISS AT ALABAMA

Hahahahahahahaha.

PREDICTION: Alabama by 50, unless it gets called for lightning.

LOUISIANA-MONROE AT LSU

What a game this will be. You know, unless it starts. The most interesting thing from this game will be watching LSU fans in Tiger Stadium pray for no injuries to the talent on the field.

PREDICTION: LSU by 41.

UMASS AT VANDERBILT

It’s been an awful first couple of weeks for Vanderbilt, folks. But Derek Mason should get the first win of his season this year.

PREDICTION: Vandy by 21

MSU AT SOUTH ALABAMA

Er….

PREDICTION: Go Cowbell. Mississippi State by 35.
