Five that stand out:

1) Florida State-Miami: Florida State is going to absolutely pound Miami. This game will get ugly and it will get ugly fast.

2) Florida-Georgia: Tyler Moore at left tackle? I hope Tyler Murphy packs his PF Flyer’s.

3) Texas Tech-Oklahoma State: The Red Raiders fell to Oklahoma last week in a crazy game. Kliff Kingsbury will exact his revenge this week against a different school from Oklahoma.

4) Tennessee-Missouri: I know Mizzou lost a heartbreaker last week but this team is for real. They’ll take care of business against the Vols at home.

5) Michigan-Michigan State: Between Michigan State being inept on offense and Devin Gardner’s penchant for throwing interceptions (10 on the season) this game will set offense back decades. I think the better defense and the home field advantage make the difference here but I’m not in love with this selection.

David”PD” Parker

OHIO STATE over PURDUE: Good grief, does any team outside the ACC have an easier schedule than these Buckeye chumps?!

TEXAS TECH over OKLAHOMA STATE : I just can’t respect OSU’s body of work after losing to West-by-gum-Virginia

MISSOURI  over TENNESSEE : I am tempted to pick the Vols, but I think their surge of energy ran out when they ran into the Bama buzz saw.

FSU over Miami: Closer than most think, and not because Miami is good.

Florida over Georgia: This will be by more than a TD, but not much more. I think the UF coaches find the answers to pull the OL together and work around the holes better than Richt & his crew does. Plus UGA has been flat-out lucky, STUPID-lucky to escape the last 2 years with wins, wins that the Gators handed to them. I think Florida doesn’t give the Dawgs anything cheap this time and their luck finally runs out.

Andrew Spivey

Everyone better recognize AS is climbing the leaderboard in a hurry and I can finally see Seth again. This week I’m going with the Noles again in a big game and I’m going to go with Oklahoma State over Texas Tech.

Daniel “DK” Thompson

Being in last place sucks. I am only a few games from passing David and Andrew, so hopefully I can make some magic happen this week.

FSU by 21+ points. UGA by 10+ points. Texas Tech by 13+ points.

Seth Puglio

I hate to say it but unless the Gators made some pretty drastic changes in the bye week, I can’t imagine them leaving Jax with a win. The World’s Largest Cocktail Party may require a few extra cocktails this year. I think Virginia has a shot against Clemson, as well as Tennessee against Missouri. Worse part of the weekend? We get to hear about how wonderful the Noles are after they thrash a very average Miami team.

Richard Johnson

Biggest game of the week is FSU-Miami, and it’s in name only. I have no problem picking the Seminoles to cover the outrageous (for two top ten teams) 21-point spread. The Hurricanes are the biggest fraud in all of the top-25 and they’ll be exposed Saturday. It also doesn’t help that they’re playing the second or third best team in the country: FSU. This is a Miami team that’s been on the ropes against both North Carolina and Wake Forest and were out-gained by nearly 200 yards by Florida’s offense but benefited from the Gators’ five turnovers to win the game. Quarterback Stephen Morris has a cannon attached to his shoulder, but it isn’t very accurate most of the time. The Hurricanes will need more than Duke Johnson to compete with FSU, and they don’t have it.

David Shepard

Big week for the Gators. Gators will need to do what they did in 2005 which, was to reinvent a little of their offense to suit the personnel. I believe the Gators will run Taylor a lot and use the short pass game to a fault. Gurley will be the difference maker-if the Gators can contain him, then Florida will be able to run the offense with lots of KT. The game is Taylor-made for a Gator win.
