    BIG GAMES THIS WEEK
    #8 GEORGIA (2-0) @ #1 TENNESSEE (3-0)

    This is a compelling matchup here. On one side, you have the Vols, fresh off a huge win over Florida taking on their 4TH STRAIGHT ranked opponent and when I say each of them are highly ranked, they have been. We wonder how much of a toll this can take on a young team facing so much brute competition back to back to back to back to back like this. On the other side, you have a Georgia team that is well coached but is coming into hostile territory starting a freshman, albeit very talented. How will he handle the pressure of playing in a huge stadium filled with thousands of rowdy Vol fans ready to sing Rocky Mountain Top?

    #12 FLORIDA (2-1) @ #4 AUBURN (3-0)
    Florida is reeling here and is struggling under new coach VaSteelah. It doesn't help matters when they are playing arguably the hottest team/coach in the nation in the Auburn Tigers. Auburn's mojo is high now after their highly sought out recruitment of the nation's best QB from HS from their big win over Miami (FL). It seems Auburn is making the best out of their talent while it's the exact opposite in Gainesville. Get the ball into your RB's hands and let them do the work. Rainey/Demps are amazing in space...can Florida get them there? Also how will Auburn respond after a huge two weeks on campus? Are they due for a letdown?

    OTHER USER GAMES
    BOSTON COLLEGE (2-2) @ #11 CLEMSON (3-0)- Thursday night game saw a scare from the Eagles
    NC STATE (1-1) @ #10 NORTH CAROLINA (2-1)- Coach Bly leaves unexpectedly and they face rival NCST while looking for a new hire.
    #23 WISCONSIN (3-1) @ #13 FLORIDA STATE (3-1)- Another thursday night game saw FSU overcome a tough Badger squad
    #6 MIAMI- BYE
    #21 LSU- BYE
    #24 VIRGINIA TECH (2-1) @ #18 BOISE STATE (3-0)- VaTech looks to rebound against Boise State
    WEST VIRGINIA (1-1) @ #3 GEORGIA TECH (3-0)- GT faces a now unranked WVU following a loss.
    ARKANSAS (1-2) @ #2 ALABAMA (3-0)- The last of the thursday night games, Arkansas was no match for Bama.

    We're going to be lucky to finish 7-5 with the way we're playing...screw title picture. Seriously, I can't see us winning any of my 5 user games, and with a few sims while on vacation, we might even lose 1 to the cpu.

    From 14-0 national champs...to not even making a bowl game. That would be a 1st (n)

    Auburn didnt secure that commit from that qb nor did he get a soft commit.

    That leaves hope for Bama and Tennesee.
