Let's talk football! Some good games on tap today; besides the Pac-12 slate, we have these top-25 match-ups:

Tennessee @ #13 South Carolina

#2 Florida @ #10 Georgia

#14 Texas Tech @ #3 Kansas State

#5 Notre Dame @ #8 Oklahoma

#11 Mississippi State @ #1 Alabama

Cassino's picks:

Georgia +7 vs Florida. Florida's offense is putrid, and though Georgia's defense hasn't been what it was supposed to be, it should still be enough to give UF a tough time. I'm much more comfortable with Aaron Murray then Jeff Driskel.

Arizona State -6.5 vs UCLA. I just think ASU is a much better team, and I'm not holding the Oregon game against them, because Oregon.

Alabama -24 vs Mississippi State. Alabama at home against a Mississippi state team who hasn't played anybody. Yeah. Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon are running roughshod over MSU and Bama's defense is still Bama's defense.

Kansas State -7 vs Texas Tech. I keep not wanting to admit that K-Sate is for real, but I can't get around it any more. I think they roll Tech here and the Collin Klein Heisman machine keeps on churning.

Michigan +2 @ Nebraska. I actually like Michigan straight up here. Nebraska has a tough time defending mobile quarterbacks, so Denard should be a nightmare for them.
