Vanderbilt is already bowl eligible. Tennessee isn't.
Let that sink in.
Something else: Vanderbilt coach James Franklin has won six SEC games in not quite two full seasons. That's two more than UT coach Derek Dooley has won in almost three seasons.
What's next in a rivalry that has been turned topsy-turvy? Will Vanderbilt fans actually fill up their own stadium?
UT vs. Vanderbilt usually turns into a home stadium invasion whenever the teams play in Nashville. But this season, the Vols haven't even been able to take over their own stadium.
Tennessee 34, Vanderbilt 30: The Vols actually have a couple of things going for them tonight. Let's take the worst first.
Never mind if Tennessee is giving up more points per game than all but 10 FBS teams, Vanderbilt invariably brings out the best in UT defenses.
In the past 20 years, the Commodores are averaging only 12.5 points per game against UT. Two years ago, six teams scored 30 or more points against the Vols. That same defense held Vanderbilt to 10 points.
LSU 38, Ole Miss 20: The Tigers routed the Rebels 52-3 last season, but that hasn't been the norm for the series under LSU coach Les Miles, whose teams lost back-to-back games to the Rebels in 2008-09. One of his five victories against Ole Miss was in overtime and another was by just seven points.
Mississippi State 35, Arkansas 27: Next time the Razorbacks hire a head coach for one season, they should make sure his middle initial isn't "L." I recommend someone with a "W."
Kentucky 37, Samford 10: The Wildcats played 10 consecutive games, then got an open date before this. Add "scheduling" to the long list of needed improvements for the next coach.
South Carolina 38, Wofford 13: Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier should be taking potshots at Clemson by halftime.
Texas A&M 58, Sam Houston State 14: Cam Newton holds the SEC record for single-season total offense with 4,327 yards, 146 more than Tim Tebow. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel already has 3,794 yards with two regular-season games and a bowl remaining.
Missouri 27, Syracuse 17: The Tigers obviously have to improve their non-conference scheduling if they're going to get any relief in the SEC. If they're looking for a role model, I recommend Mississippi State, whose non-conference schedule this season consisted of Jackson State, Troy, South Alabama and Middle Tennessee.
Georgia 41, Georgia Southern 14: These Bulldogs haven't overextended themselves in their non-conference scheduling, either. The Eagles are an FCS team and Georgia's three other non-conference opponents have a combined record of 8-19.
Alabama 52, Western Carolina 7: Is this match-up even safe?
Florida 44, Jacksonville State 11: Remind you of anything? That's how badly the Gators beat the other Gamecocks on their schedule.
Auburn 42, Alabama A&M 7: As of this writing, Auburn still plans on going through with next week's game against Alabama.
Top 25: Kansas State 48, Baylor 20; Oregon 52, Stanford 23; Notre Dame 34, Wake Forest 17; Florida State 45, Maryland 13; Oregon State 30, Cal 19; Oklahoma 48, West Virginia 34; Clemson 41, N.C. State 20; Nebraska 38, Minnesota 20; UCLA 38, Southern California 37; Louisiana Tech 38, Utah State 30; Oklahoma State 44, Texas Tech 37; Cincinnati 27, Rutgers 23; Bowling Green 34, Kent State 31; Michigan 31, Iowa 24.
Record: 181-42 (.812), 104-97 (.517) against the spread.
