After taking a week off of work (and writing this with almost no care in the world) Saturday should be a very mundane day what with the expected rain. However I can’t take any solace in the fact that there aren’t a lot of games to be excited about.

Compelling Matchups

#12 South Carolina Gamecocks at #2 LSU Tigers. The ole ball coach has the Cocks riding high on defense. It’s surprising since Steve Spurrier is known for his wacky offensive schemes. But those Cocks have one of the toughest defenses in the country.

But then again, so do the Tigers. In fact the Tigers have only given up one touchdown all season while running up 137 points. 48 of those points came against the stout defense of Virginia Tech. I see LSU running away with this game. LSU over South Carolina 52-14.

#22 Georgia Bulldogs at #16 Alabama Crimson Tide. The Bulldogs disappointed during week 2 against the Cocks. They couldn’t muster anything on offense despite their defense keeping them in the game.

Nick Saban and his Tide are riding on a high wave after their defeat of Arkansas. The home crowd should be deafening, but I just don’t think the Tide can stop anyone. If Arkansas had Heisman hopeful Darren McFadden, the Razorbacks would have won the game. I see Georgia upsetting the tide. Georgia over Alabama 21-20.

I know. They aren’t completely compelling, but then again I’m on vacation. My level of empathy right now is at an all-time low, so there. Enjoy these boring games.
