SEC teams proved that they could win on the road and everything went as it was supposed to. LSU and Auburn had a close one, Georgia duked it out in the desert, Florida showed its dominance against Tennessee, and Vanderbilt worked its way into the Top 25.

The Big Red Board did not fare as well as it went with two upsets and missed on them both. Week Four was a sub-par 5 - 2 with a 14.1 points per game differential. The running total doesn't get affected much, however, as 28 - 8 and 13.4 ppg are the prediction stats on the pubescent season.

Enough yada, yada, yada; let's hit the crystal ball button:

All games are September 27th

Ole Miss at Florida (12:30 p.m. ET / Raycom Sports) - With USC losing Thursday night, Florida is one of the teams in the hunt to get the Number One spot in the polls. They'll be glad to show the voters what they have on Saturday when the Rebels come to Gainesville....all too glad - Gators by 21.

Tennessee at Auburn (2:30 p.m. CT / CBS Sports) - "Tubby vs. Tubby." Fulmer and his volunteers are down and Auburn knows it. Both have something to prove and Fulmer needs a +1 badly in the win column. We almost feel sorry for the guy because the Tigers are going to blow on the hot ashes located directly below Phil's chair. Auburn at home by 8.

Arkansas at Texas (2:30 p.m. CT / ABC Sports) - Oh dear, where to begin. This does not look good for the Hog faithful. Texas was like Nostradamus in scheduling the Razorbacks, even though a two week delay might have increased Arkansas' chances. Sorry, SEC, the Big 12 gets this one, but Texas does not cover the spread. Painfully, Brown's Boys by 24.

Western Kentucky at Kentucky (7 p.m. ET / PPV - Big Blue Sports Network) - Okay, Kentucky, time to shake off the rust from sitting at home last week. There isn't a better way to get ready for the SEC schedule than with a tune-up versus the Hilltoppers. Brooks sprays his boys down with WD-40 and the Wildcats put Western Kentucky back on the bus with a big loss. Wildcats by 22.

UAB at South Carolina (7 p.m. ET / PPV - Gamecock Sports Network) - UAB needs a paycheck and South Carolina needs to get above .500. Both will happen this week as Spurrier gets his team ready to play in front of a hungry home crowd. Gamecocks struggle a little early, but they have no problem flattening UAB by 21.

Mississippi State at LSU (6:30 p.m. CT / ESPN2) - LSU sees a top spot in the polls as a possibility, and Mississippi State sees redemption for early season woes. The game is in Death Valley so it will be hard to hear Sylvester saying "Bad Ol' putty tat;" the Bulldogs will only see Tigers...and a lot of them. LSU by 30.

Alabama at Georgia (7:45 p.m. ET / ESPN) - Two very good teams square off against one another in a game that could have BCS National Championship inclinations down the line. Saban's Crimson Tide are red hot and Georgia, as expected, is finding ways to win ballgames. The deciding factor in this one is that it is a home game for the Bulldogs in this Game of the Week. Georgia overpowers a quite possibly over-confident Alabama team by 10.

Vanderbilt takes a week to stare at the polls and smile, plus they have a big quantum physics exam on Friday.
