Football Picks: Last week's record was 8-2. I'll take it. The win percentage remains at 75% with an overall record now of 64-21.

The parachute delivery of the game ball for Senior Night at O'Brien Stadium was quite the treat. It energized the crowd and team in establishing an early lead only to see it foiled by at Trojan comeback win in overtime.

This week's Beauregard matchup has a lot riding on the Tigers' playoff aspirations with a multitude of scenarios for seeding.

The Tide and Tigers take a break after big wins. Gus Malzahn is back above water for the moment. Bama had a cigar party for the 12th straight year and are prepped for what should be their stiffest challenge to date in a Death Valley showdown the first weekend in November.

Notasulga at Wadley: Everybody's playing for second in this region behind Lanett. Wadley clinches the two spot with a victory. Win or lose, the Blue Devils are still in. Wadley 34, Notasulga 20.

Ranburne at Reeltown: The Bulldogs are a formidable non-region foe. The Rebels are tuning up for the post-season with a bye week next Friday. Reeltown 28, Ranburne 20.

Elmore County at Lincoln: As previously noted, this is a tight-knit region. Five teams are separated by one game in the win column. Lincoln claims the top spot outright with a win on Friday. The Panthers earn a share of the title and then let the tiebreaking formulas begin. Lincoln 34, Elmore County 30

Carver vs. Park Crossing: The Thunderbirds aren't what they were last year, but they're still good enough to make this one interesting. Carver has been impressive with one hiccup at the hands of Lanier. Carver 25, Park Crossing 17.

Tallassee at Beauregard: The Hornets stumbled out of the blocks this season but have found their footing in winning four of their last five.

The Tigers have to shake off last week's second half collapse against Chucky Henderson and get back to business. They still control their post-season destiny and will clinch a playoff spot with a win.

Beauregard has won the last five in the series, the last in 2015 - a 33-7 beatdown. Tallassee reeled off five in-a-row prior to that. The Tigers lead the overall series 14-12.

Turnovers cost THS in the Senior Night loss last week. If they control the football they can win, otherwise the Hornets' streak extends to six straight. Tallassee 34, Beauregard 31.

Clemson at FSU: Dabo has the Tigers rolling again. I'll give him credit. He pulled the trigger on the Lawrence for Bryant exchange. It wasn't popular but will likely be the best move for Clemson's championship hopes.

The trip to Tallahassee "was" supposed to be a toughie. I just don't see it. If the Tigers start "Clemsoning" again, the 'Noles can pull the upset. Clemson 24, FSU 15.

Kentucky at Missouri: What Kentucky has been able to do has been nice. They are having a nice season. Still, they're still Kentucky. Missouri 31, Kentucky 21

Tennessee at South Carolina: I don't believe either of these teams are any good. I know the Vols beat Auburn. That's on Auburn. Cocky's at home. Cue up "2001" and "Sandstorm." Carolina 27, Tennessee 24

Texas A&M at Mississippi State: This might be the toughest pick on the board. I know that Nick Fitzgerald can't throw, but he can run, and State has a pretty good defense.

I'm putting this one on Mond at quarterback. Despite the cowbell, the Aggies make enough plays to pull off the mild upset in Starkville. Texas A&M 21, Miss. State 20.

Florida at Georgia: It's back. The rivalry ensues with two Top 10 teams. It's been ten years since that's happened in the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." In 2008, Florida was No. 5 and Georgia was No. 8.

The Gators won 49-10 and were coached by Urban Meyer, who went on to win the national title. The Bulldogs were led by Mark Richt, who went 10-3.

Dan Mullen's turnaround in Gainesville has been admirable. Florida was 4- last year. They have a shot in this one, but they're still not quite there yet. Georgia 24, Florida 17.
