Our Staff’s correct picks are in blue, incorrect picks are in red.
1. (5) Florida State 51 @ (3) Clemson 14
I am not sure anyone expected a rout in Death Valley Saturday night, but that is exactly what Clemson got. Jameis Winston finally solidified himself as the Heisman front runner in the minds of many experts.
2. (9) UCLA 10 @ (13) Stanford 24
The Stanford defense pitched a shutout in the first half and coasted to a victory over Jim Mora and UCLA late on the West Coast.
3. (15) Georgia 27 @ Vanderbilt 31
Georgia loses its second straight game as another opponent takes advantage of the injuries. Vanderbilt earns the first signature win under James Franklin in his tenure.
4. (11) South Carolina 21 @ Tennessee 23
Tennesse was able to shock the college football world as well, knocking off no. 11 South Carolina. The Gamecocks loss puts a huge dent in their hopes of getting to Atlanta to the SEC Championship game.
5. (22) Florida 17 @ (14) Missouri 36
Missouri now controls their own destiny in a big way after beating Florida and hold a 2 game lead in the SEC East Standings. A Win over South Carolina on Saturday would seal the deal.
6. (24) Auburn 45 @ (7) Texas A&M 41
On a Saturday where upsets abounded everywhere, Auburn led by Gus Malzahn snagged a huge victory for the program as Nick Marshall found a way to match Johnny Manziel at Kyle Field.
Dave- Texas A&M
Jesse- Texas A&M
Drake- Texas A&M
Jake- Texas A&M
Desmen- Texas A&M
7. Arkansas 0 @ (1) Alabama 52
Alabama kept the ball rolling against Arkansas, scoring early and often, never looking back. Arkansas is in a world of trouble just 8 games into Coach Brett Bielema’s short Razorback coaching career.
8. (6) LSU 24 @ Ole Miss 27
Ole Miss absolutely stunned the LSU Tigers at the Vaught in front of a capacity crowd. The Rebels are back on track for a big bowl game while LSU still has Alabama looming on the schedule.
Jake- Ole Miss
Desmen- Ole Miss
