OLE MISS (2-1) AT TULANE (0-2)
Skinny: A third win for the Rebels tops their 2011 total and it's still September. Of course, that was true last week before Texas hung 66 on the Rebels.
Key Players: After giving up 676 yards to Texas, the Rebels will shuffle the secondary. Charles Sawyer moves from safety to corner and true freshman Trae Elston gets the start at safety.
Line: Ole Miss by 17 1/2.
KENTUCKY (1-2, 0-0) AT FLORIDA (3-0, 2-0)
Time: 12:21 p.m.
Skinny: Yes, the Gators are better than a year ago. That's bad news for the Wildcats, who aren't. The nation's new longest annual rivalry winning streak — Tennessee is off the books now — should extend from 25 to 26.
Key Players: Jeff Driskel, the Gators' sophomore quarterback, has developed by leaps and bounds the past two weeks at Texas A&M and Tennessee. If UK's Maxwell Smith throws interceptions, this one gets ugly early.
Line: Florida by 24.
MISSOURI (2-1, 0-1) AT SOUTH CAROLINA (3-0, 1-0)
Time: 3:30 p.m.
Skinny: Mizzou's first SEC road game is the battle of the sore-shoulder quarterbacks.
Key Players: Steve Spurrier says Connor Shaw will start at quarterback and hope his shoulder doesn't take another hit. Missouri's James Franklin is questionable after missing last week's Arizona State win. It could revert to a battle of the backups, Dylan Thompson for the Gamecocks and Corbin Berkstresser for the Tigers.
Line: South Carolina by 10.
FAU (1-2) AT ALABAMA (3-0)
Time: 5 p.m.
Skinny: Florida Atlantic goes from a 56-20 drubbing at Georgia to No. 1 Alabama. Next week? The Green Bay Packers.
Key Players: FAU's Adarius Glanton scored on an interception return at Georgia. He may have to do so again or the Crimson Tide might pitch a third consecutive shutout.
Line: Alabama by 49 1/2.
LSU (3-0, 0-0) AT AUBURN (1-2, 0-1)
Time: 7 p.m.
Skinny: Finally, an SEC test for LSU, even if it is disappointing Auburn, whose only win is in overtime against Louisiana-Monroe.
Key Players: Onterio McCalebb might be Auburn's chance to score — on a kick return. The Tigers haven't had an offensive touchdown in their past 11 quarters against SEC teams.
Line: LSU by 20 1/2.
RUTGERS (3-0) AT ARKANSAS (1-2)
Time: 7 p.m.
Skinny: Rutgers is unbeaten under first-year coach Kyle Flood and has a defense allowing only 8.3 points a game. Maybe Flood can be a candidate at Arkansas.
Key Players: Tyler Wilson is cleared to play for Arkansas, which has endured six miserable quarters without him. Rutgers tailback Jawan Jamison broke a school record with 41 carries last week against South Florida.
Line: Arkansas by 7.
SOUTH ALABAMA (1-2) AT MISS. ST. (3-0)
Time: 7 p.m.
Skinny: Mississippi State hopes to tighten up its defense after allowing 572 yards last week to another team from South Alabama, Troy State.
Key Players: Bulldogs quarterback Tyler Russell has yet to throw an interception this year and has flipped eight touchdown passes.
Line: State by 34 1/2.
SOUTH CAROLINA ST. (1-2) AT TEXAS A&M (1-1)
Time: 7 p.m.
Skinny: After a 48-3 massacre of SMU, Texas A&M draws an opponent with even fewer credentials. S.C. State has never beaten an FBS team.
Key Players: Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel is the SEC freshman of the week after producing 418 yards of total offense in a rout of SMU.
VANDERBILT (1-2, 0-1) AT GEORGIA (3-0, 1-0)
Time: 7:45 p.m.
Skinny: Georgia's defense is allowing 21 points a game but gets reinforced this week with All-America linebacker Jelani Jenkins back from an injury. Presbyterian's defense cured Vandy's rushing woes last week to the tune of 410 yards.
Key Players: Quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels, scheduled for a second start at quarterback for the 'Dores, will notice Georgia's defense isn't as cooperative as Presbyterian's.
Line: Georgia by 16.
