Mississippi over LSU. The first real test for Ole Miss. LSU's Chinese Bandits aren't above stealing a ball game, but Mississippi has the better offense.

Iowa over Ohio State. If the Hawkeyes can't get through the stalwart Buckeyes, they can go over them with Matt Szykowny's passes.

Michigan State over Minnesota. When two big lines batter each other, someone has to yield. The slower Gophers will be the first to give ground.
