Key games this weekend (Rankings based off of AP Poll)

10.Michigan State at. Indiana (12 PM ET, FS1)
Can Michigan State continue its undefeated season? I think so. Projected Score: Michigan State 35, Indiana 24

12.Oklahoma State at. 25.Texas (12 PM ET, FOX)
After a gut-wrenching loss to Oklahoma, Texas has to win out to even be in the picture in the Big 12. Oklahoma State just has to keep on winning, and they too, will get a shot against the Sooners. Projected Score: Oklahoma State 42, Texas 31

Auburn at. 17.Arkansas (Saturday, 12 PM ET, CBS)
With both Arkansas and Auburn coming off of losses, this game should be interesting. Considering also the fact that Arkansas absolutely got a win taken away from them on the plains last year, expect a fired up Razorback football team, returning home for the first time in three Saturdays. Despite the loss, Arkansas QB KJ Jefferson accounted for 6 touchdowns in his return to his home state of Mississippi. Auburn QB Bo Nix has also become more consistent. The battle of this game is going to be which defense can stop the opposing team’s running game. Auburn’s Tank Bigsby and Arkansas’ plethora of backs (Trelon Smith, Rocket Sanders, Dominique Johnson, and AJ Green) will run all over the opposing defenses. It should be a fun one in Fayetteville. Projected Score: Arkansas 38, Auburn 24

11.Kentucky at. 1.Georgia (Saturday, 3:30 PM ET, CBS)
ESPN’s College GameDay will head to Athens for a second time in three weeks for yet another undefeated battle between the home Georgia Bulldogs and the upstart Kentucky Wildcats. While it is no surprise Georgia is number one in the country after Alabama’s loss, it is unsurprising how little the Tide fell. Kentucky’s new pass offense is finally clicking as they hope to give Georgia at least a fight. Projected Score: Georgia 42, Kentucky 9

5.Alabama at. Mississippi State (Saturday, 7 PM ET, ESPN)
Of course, everyone knows that Alabama lost its first match up against an unranked team for the first time in 101 tries against Texas A&M last Saturday, 41-38. That Texas A&M team handled Alabama fairly well. They looked like it did not know what it was doing most of the time in conference losses to both Arkansas and Mississippi State. Of course, the Tide head to Stark Vegas, still in control of their path to Atlanta and the SEC Championship. All Nick Saban’s squad has to do is win, and I expect them to do it, coming off of a game where they did not play all that well. Projected Score: Alabama 38, Mississippi State 20

13.Ole Miss at. Tennessee (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, SECN)
After Ole Miss QB Matt Corral’s career day a week ago against Arkansas, a trip to Knoxville comes next. Tennessee’s offense is also hitting its stride. But, the offensive showing Ole Miss and Arkansas put up a week ago shows that it will be tough for the Volunteers to keep up. Projected Score: Ole Miss 49, Tennessee 38

TCU at. 4.Oklahoma (Saturday, 7:30 PM ET, ABC)
With Caleb Williams taking over at QB, Oklahoma should be fine against a talented TCU team, led by running back Zach Evans. Projected Score: Oklahoma 45, TCU 35
