It wont be on a neutral field but "Between the Hedges" @ Sanford Stadium. Who ever wins this gains a leg up in the SEC East. Georgia enters the game a week removed from a backyard brawl that should have them chomping at the bit to get back on the field. The biggest question for the Bulldogs is where has the offense been. Against Tennessee the Dawgs have only managed 10 points in each of the last two contests. Against Bama they settled for 2 redzone field goals. The will need to buy time for Scales somehow against a relentless Tennessee rush. The Volunteers are on route to break all kinds of scoring records this season posting 71,70,73,72 and 49 in a user game against Florida. The University's Track team errr I mean Football team hasn't lost since.....jez I don't know when. This team is hardened and experienced adversity on their way to last years national title...are the unflappable? Coach Bruce has been known to lose his cool but is Sanford Staduim enough to light the fuse. #6 North Carolina 5-0 (2-0) @ #4 Clemson 5-0 (3-0) After being absent from the top 25 for weeks at a time last season North Carolina seems to be in a groove. But is this the ultimate "Pretender vs Contender" game. Coach Blaza will have to beat a Clemson team that has not lost a division user game when coach Colemanchu has been on the sideline. The Tar Heels fine tuned their passing game last week throwing 40 times in preperation for this one. This is UNC's first spotlight game so it wil be interesting to see what they bring to the table. The Clemson program is full of moxy willing to take on the big boys for recruits and now will take some of the spotlight. The Tigers feel like this is their year. This game kicks off a string of 3 user games in a row. It's a big stretch for the Clemson program and a let down at the start of this stretch will send a bad signal to the Clemson faithful. #11 Florida St. 4-1 (2-1) @ #10 Virginia Tech 4-1 (2-1) This one kind of gets lost in the shuffle and your budgeting your TV time you might want to watch the other games. Wait this is the only one you can watch! Will V.T. face the CPU or Kinger? If Kinger is able to make it expect a great game. If FSU is on auto pilot then expect a good game. FSU is good enough as a CPU opponent to cause trouble. Ju Ju Clayton has resurfaced and doesn't resemble the Ju Ju of old. A fan favorite and heart sould of the VT program. Without TE Logan Thomas Clayton could not have found himself. Thomas is a stud and needs to be watched everyplay. Florida State's EJ Manuel needs to play better for FSU to win. 13 TD's and 13 INT's on the season not the norm for a Kingerock coached team. National TV Games #1 Alabama 5-0 (2-0) @ Ole Miss 3-2 (1-1) Ole Miss is hoping for a let down after Alabama's big game against UGA. Not happening. South Carolina 4-2 (2-1) @ Florida 3-2 (1-2) Is there any magic left for South Carolina? They beat LSUÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦.LSU beat FloridaÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦so who knows in a rivalry gameÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦.just sayin. Regional Broadcasts Duke 2-3 (1-2) @ #2 Georgia Tech 5-0 (3-0) zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦..Tech had a week to prepare commense blowout. #5 Miami 5-0 @ Virginia 0-5 (0-4) Virginia is killing the ACC's strength of schedule. A blowout here is expected. #22 LSU 4-2 (2-1) @ Kentucky 1-4 (0-3) LSU is back in the top 25 no let downs please. Vanderbilt 2-2 (1-1) @ #18 Auburn 4-1 (3-0) Hey Auburn may have a loss but they are still unbeaten in the SEC. Lets just let the Tigers sleep.
