Here's how our community is feeling in this week's action:

  • Close call tonight in what is probably Thursday night's most traditional match-up:  54.3% take Miami on the road in Blacksburg.  It's less fun tomorrow night, with 92.9% taking Boise State at home over BYU and 100% taking Oregon on the road at Cal.
  • This is the least optimistic Vol fans have been all year, just 10.5% taking Tennessee to beat Alabama.
  • We believe in the Magnolia State:  78.5% take Ole Miss in Baton Rouge, 96.4% take Mississippi State in Lexington.
  • Close calls of the week:  53.5% take USC at Utah, 60.7% take West Virginia at Oklahoma State, 55.3% take Georgia Tech at Pittsburgh.
