The Dawgs had a bye to regroup before their crucial showdown with Florida.
Fell Out: #15 Texas A&M, #20 Cal
Newcomers: #24 UCLA, #25 Mississippi State
#8 Alabama. The Crimson Tide have one of the better teams in the country; however, they received a first place vote in the recent polls. Alabama’s loss to Ole Miss knocks them from contention for the top spot until they meet LSU in two weeks, thus they are this week’s overrated team.
#12 Oklahoma State. The Pokes are undefeated yet getting no respect in the recent polls, coming in at number 12. Oklahoma State should be ranked a few positions higher above some of the one loss teams.

#9 Notre Dame at #21 Temple
Last week I took Virginia Tech over Duke. It was an overtime thriller, but the Hokies fell short.
This week, I’m going with Auburn at home to knock off Ole Miss.
