In a season this crazy, I'm not sure if my predictions matter a whole heck of a lot! But, for those that are curious, here is who I think will win this weekend...

Vanderbilt at Georgia - Look for the Dawgs to win big here. They have to get back into the national scene, and let's face it, they are just a lot better than Vandy...UGA, 30-14

Arkansas at Kentucky - I see these two teams as very equal. As I always say, I think home-field goes a very long way in the SEC. The Cats bounce back from last week's defeat to the Gamecocks....UK, 20-19

VT at BC - Virginia Tech has hit stride since the opening season loss to East Carolina. Now, they must take care of business at Boston College. We all know BC isn't the same team without Matt Ryan, so VT can't let this one get away...VT, 28-20

Wake Forest at Maryland - Maryland is too up and down to predict. They beat Clemson one week on the road, and get shut-out, 31-0, to lowly UVA the next weekend. Who knows? This week I will predict they will be up, and Wake goes down...UM, 26-23 

Miami at Duke - Whoever would have thought that I would have to sit back and think about who will win this game. But that is the case. I think Miami has much better athletes, and shoul dwin. But David Cutcliffe has Duke believing they can win games they shouldn't...UM, 24-17

Kansas at Oklahoma - The Sooners lost a tough close one to Texas last week, and in turn, gave up the nation's top ranking. Now they return home to Norman, where they will take their problems out on Kansas...OU, 40-14

Georgia Tech at Clemson - For the Tigers, this game went from being a "whatever" game, to being one of the most anticipated games in school-history. Tommy Bowden gives way to 6-year assistant Dabo Swinney lead CU against the Jackets, who are also in their first year under new Head Coach Paul Johnson. This game has too many side-stories to get into!...CU, 30-20

Missouri at Texas - This game has "upset" written up and down, inside and out, all over it! Texas must come prepared, because everyone gives number 1 their best shot. By the way, Mizzou is pretty darn good. This will be a war...UM, 30-28

UNC at UVA - North Carolina still has plenty of doubters. So losing this game to a struggling UVA team would really not be good for image. Virginia, after starting miserably, has shown some life....UNC, 35-20

Mississippi at Alabama - Ole Miss has already pulled its' big win of the season, beating Florida in the Swamp. They have the potential to do it, but do not expect an upset. Nick Saban is as mentally prepared as any coach, and his team will roll again...UA, 34-17

LSU at South Carolina - I think SOuth Carolina gets the win here. The Cocks have been on the verge of winning some big SEC games, and I feel like they breakthrough in this one. Stephen Garcia's ability to move around will be a big factor...USC, 20-18

Texas Tech at Texas A&M - The Raiders are a much better team, and should win this going away. A&M has been bad for a long, long time now, and even though they jump up and do something crazy every now and then, don't expect it this weekend...TT, 47-30

Michigan at Penn State - The 3rd ranked Nittany Lions are off to a magical season once again under eternal Coach Joe Paterno. But Michigan would love nothing more than to ruin JoPa's season as they did in 2005 when the Lions were ranked 6th. Being in Happy Valley, I think Penn State stays unbeaten, and is instantly the class of the Big Ten and a national title contender...PSU, 30-20
