Our staff has come up with a fun weekly article, “Pick ‘Ems”. In these weekly articles we will post our staff’s picks on the top games in College Football. This includes all SEC vs SEC games. And yes, whoever is playing Ole Miss. We hope you enjoy Rebel Nation. Hotty Toddy!   What a 9th week in College football it was! We saw the Rebels dethrone the 6th ranked LSU Tigers at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. Find out who our staff predicted in Oxford and many more! 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. Staff Picks: Dave(TheSpiritofColonelReb)- FSU Jesse(omrebelfan20)- FSU Drake(AreHughReady)- FSU Jake(Tsunsofgunz)- FSU Desmen(jdison92)- Clemson   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. Staff Picks: Dave- Stanford Jesse- UCLA Drake- Stanford Jake- Stanford Desmen- Stanford   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. Staff Picks: Dave- Georgia Jesse- Georgia Drake- Georgia Jake- Georgia Desmen- Georgia   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. Dave- SC Jesse- SC Drake- SC Jake- SC Desmen- SC 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. Dave- Florida Jesse- Florida Drake- Florida Jake- Florida Desmen- Missouri 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. Staff Picks: 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. Dave- Alabama Jesse- Alabama Drake- Alabama Jake- Alabama Desmen- Alabama 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. Staff Picks: Dave- LSU Jesse- LSU Drake- LSU Jake- Ole Miss Desmen- Ole Miss   *ORB Staff Pick Em’ Cup Standings:   T1. Jesse(omrebelfan20): 40-18     (69%) T1. Drake(AreHughReady): 40-18  (69%) 3. Dave(olerebelblogger): 37-21      (64%) 4. Desmen(jdison92): 30-19             (61%) 5. Jake(Tsunsofgunz): 34-24           (59%)
