GATOR: No. 21 Mississippi State (8-4) vs. Michigan (7-5)
With the vultures waiting to swoop in on embattled Wolverines coach Rich Rodriguez, the circumstances seem ripe for him to make AD Dave Brandon's decision more difficult. With five weeks' rest, star quarterback Denard Robinson will flash his September form with a 200/200-type day. The Bulldogs will do ample damage to Michigan's porous defense, but lack the comparable big-play guys.
Also of note:
- He has the Big Ten going 3-5 (4-5 if you include Nebraska).
- Michigan is the only Big Ten team predicted to win on New Year's Day (1-4 record)
- He picks Auburn to beat Oregon (boo, I hate Auburn)
