5 for Saturday

17-12-1 on the year after a dismal 1-4 last weekend.  Slowing we are returning back to earth.

All games are Saurday.

Arkansas (+3) @ Auburn 3:30 CBS

This should be a really fun game to watch with the 2 best QBs in the SEC. Both teams are still alive in the SEC West with a chance to oust Bama.  Maybe Auburn finally loses.  Either way they should have their chance to beat Bama at the end of the season and go to the SEC Title game.

Iowa @ Michigan (+3.5) 3:30 ABC

An odd choice for a homecoming game for Michigan but its kinda out of there hands.  Michigan needs this one bad to avoid the comparisons to 2009 and I think they are capable.  Last year a young Denard Robinson was brought on late in Iowa City and lead one touchdown drive late to get Michigan back into it only to throw a terriable pick to end what could have been a game winning drive. Iowa is coming off a bye and have the defense capable of slowing down Denard.  Offensively though Iowa is average and that may not be good enough. If you are betting Michigan here the play is straight up. Bonus: The soothing sounds of Ron Franklin should be music to your ears. 

Texas @ Nebraska (-9.5)  3:30 ESPN

The rematch of last years Big 12 Championship game that Texas survived by the skin of their teeth.  You think Nebraska wants this one.  They made a video in the offseason dedicated to beating Texas and then removed it because they are not Michigan State.  I feel like this is alot of points here but I can't pick Texas here. Expect the Corrnhuskers to win the turnover margin and win by double digits.

South Carolina (-5.5) @ Kentucky 6 ESPN2

Ok so this is a game you can probably skip but it should be decent if your not watching baseball.  Perhaps a let down?  Kentucky is not a bad team despite starting SEC play 0-3.  I have been riding South Carolina all year though and will continue to do so.

Ohio State @ Wisconsin (+4) 7 ESPN

You are looking Live! This one should be a dandy.  Thanks Brent that's about all your good for anymore.  Newly annointed #1 OSU travels to Madison for a night game.  This on paper is the toughest test the Buckeyes have all year.  I'll take Wisconsin here to cover this spread.  As Corso says, closer than the experts think, Buckeyes by a field goal.
