Last week: 35-3 LOSS vs. Purdue
This week: vs. Auburn
The Tigers came out flat once again last week, resulting in a blowout on their home turf. Hosting Auburn at home will give them a chance to turn the season around. Any conference win would be a big win at this point.

Last week: 27-16 LOSS @ Cal
This week: BYE
After traveling to California and losing a close game, the Rebels will try to use the bye week to figure things out. The running game should be a concern after managing only 53 yards on the ground in week three.

Last week: 23-13 LOSS vs. Kentucky
This week: vs. LA Tech
South Carolina had everything going right until last Saturday. Along with a 10 point loss, star receiver Deebo Samuel suffered a leg injury that will sideline him for most of the season. These next few weeks will be a gut check for this team.

This week: @ Texas A&M (Arlington)
The Razorbacks used their bye last week to get an early start on preparation for Texas A&M. Arkansas is the slight favorite in the Southwest Classic, but their inability to score this year is concerning.

Last week: 23-13 WIN @ South Carolina
This week: vs. Florida
Kentucky was definitely overlooked by many, including me, earlier in the year. A statement win at South Carolina helped the Wildcats significantly, but they still have not been able to win by a comfortable margin.
