Against Oklahoma, 14.4% of our community picked the Vols to win straight up.  Against Georgia, that number jumped up to 30.2%.  As of Thursday afternoon, 81.1% are picking Tennessee to get those Gators.  This thing is an avalanche.

In other news this week:

  • 100% take Oregon at home tonight against undefeated (hail mary) Arizona, who put a 42-16 spot on the Ducks last year.
  • In the SEC West triple-header, Alabama is carrying 92.4% at Ole Miss and Auburn has 92.5% on LSU, who beat them last year.  But no one knows what to do in Starkville:  Texas A&M holds 53.8% of the vote with an average of 7 (out of 20) confidence points going for each team.
  • Other close calls of the week:  Notre Dame has 55.5% of the vote at home against Stanford, and Georgia Tech over Miami is currently the tightest match-up of the week with the Yellow Jackets at 52.8%.
