In this week's action:

  • More people are taking the Vols to beat Ole Miss than took them to beat Oklahoma, so I guess that's progress on some level right?  19.2% take Tennessee in Oxford.
  • In tonight's double-header, 92.4% take Virginia Tech on the road in Pittsburgh despite the Hokies being only a 2.5 point favorite.  Likewise 79.2% take Utah on the road at Oregon State despite the Utes being favored by just 1.5.  Be careful.
  • 88.4% take Alabama over Texas A&M, 80.7% take Georgia at Arkansas, 90.3% take LSU at home over upstart Kentucky.
  • Much harder to call:  55.7% take Florida at home over Missouri.  The Gators are getting an average of six confidence points, this week's lowest total for a community favorite.
