Football Picks: Last week's record was 8-2. The overall is 60-15 (80%).

Congrats to Tallassee on its homecoming victory and staying in the playoff chase. That makes this week's game at Troy another biggie.

Vincent at Reeltown: Reeltown's last undefeated regular season came in 1991. Theyr'e two wins away from that and have already clinched the region title.

Not to look ahead but Ranburne, the Rebels opponent next week, is also unbeaten. As for Vincent, no need to worry. Reeltown 48, Vincent 6

Dallas County at Elmore County: The Panthers have never lost to Dallas County. I can't go against that number. Elmore County 34, Dallas County 26

Opelika at Stanhope Elmore: It's the battle for the region title in Millbrook on Friday. The Mustangs 7-1 start is the best in 15 years. Opelika 30, Stanhope 27

Auburn at Prattville: This is the fight for second in Class 7A, Region 2. That means a lot, a first-round homge game in the playoffs. The Lions probably have their best team since reaching the semis in 2014. Prattville 31, Auburn 23

Tallassee at Charles Henderson: You might remember the Tigers last trip to Troy. Nick Mullins nailed a 45-yard field goal as time expired for a 17-14 win in 2012. Those were two of the top teams in Class 4A. Both got beat by Dora in the playoffs.

Fast-forward to today. Charles Henderson is second-ranked in the region with Tallassee a game back. It's basically another must-win for the Tigers this week.

Truck Griffin scored all three TDs in Tallassee's homecoming win last week. He's the difference maker who can change the game from a variety of positions on the field.

If the THS defense can keep the Trojans at bay, Tallassee will be in position to win it in the end. Tallassee 20, Charles Henderson 14

Oregon at Washington: This might as well be for the PAC-12 title. The Ducks are favored on the road. That might be a hook by the guys in Vegas - not that I condone that sort of thing. Washington 27, Oregon 24

Michigan at Penn State: The Nittany Lions eked one out at Iowa on Saturday to remain in the playoff conversation. If they're the real deal, we'll find out in Columbus next month. Penn State 24, Michigan 17

Florida at South Carolina: The Gamecocks are primed for a Grade A letdown. They shocked the world last week in Athens. The Gators, on the other hand, have faced two top tens in a row. Florida 27, South Carolina 17

Auburn at Arkansas: The Tigers had to sit on their defeat in the Swamp for an extra week. Now they return to action minus their star running back from Lafayette nicknamed Boobie.

His absence from the lineup shouldn't factor in until next week in Baton Rouge. Arkansas is better than last year but still not very good. Auburn 31, Arkansas 17

Tennessee at Alabama: It's the "Third Saturday" with a rivalry that dates back to 1901. In the 101 meetings previously, this is the largest point spread - 35 1/2.

Nick Saban is 12-0 in Tuscaloosa vs. the Big Orange. He is also 18-0 vs. former assistants after last week's win vs. Jimbo.

Jeremy Pruitt got a much needed victory over Mississippi State last week. He has no chance in this one.

I feel for former Tallassee Tiger and Volunteer defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley who has to gameplan against Tua. Alabama 51, Tennessee 13
