We went 3-3 against the spread last week. I picked Utah to win straight up and cover the three at Florida. The Utes were in position to do that at the end of the game but threw an interception in the end zone. I picked LSU to beat Florida State and the mistake-prone Tigers had an extra point blocked and lost 24-23. Without running back Chris Rodriguez I thought Kentucky would not cover 16 against Miami of Ohio. Wrong. The Wildcats won 37-13. Well try to do better this week. Alabama giving 20 vs. TEXAS Nico Iamaleava Jersey. The Crimson Tide and Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Younf were most impressive in beating Utah State 55-0 in Tuscaloosa. Now Alabama goes on the road to play Texas for the ninth time in history. Only once, has Alabama beaten Texas and that was for the 2009 national championship. Twenty points seems a bit much on the road but Alabama wins and covers. ARKANSAS giving 8 vs. South Carolina. Arkansas looked good in all phases or the game in beating Cincinnati 31-24 in Fayetteville. South Carolina struggled early against Georgia State but got a couple of special teams touchdowns to win 35-14. The Hogs have something special in quarterback K. J. Jefferson. If this game was in Columbia, I would consider picking the Gamecocks. But I like the Hogs at home. Tennessee giving 6 vs. PITT:Tennessee has a chance to make a big statement if it can go to Pittsburgh, the defending ACC champion, and win. The Volunteers looked good in the opener with Bowling Green. Pitt knocked off West Virginia 38-31 in the Backyard Brawl. It will be a battle of two really good quarterbacks in Hendon Hookerand USC transfer Kedon Slovis, who threw for 308 yards against West Virginia Ben Bolton Jersey. Pittsburgh won 41-34 last year in Knoxville. Tennessee wins and covers the six.
