College Football Odds: Alabama Vs. Florida Prediction, Odds, Pick And More

Two storied SEC rivalries will take place on Saturday as LSU battles No. 12 Ole Miss and Tennessee looks for an upset over No. 4 Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The two games might not mean much in the race for the SEC title, but the passion and bragging rights associated with both games should be well worth your time. 

Games aren't the only storylines this week, though.

LSU announced on Sunday that it will part ways with coach Ed Orgeron after the season, which has led to plenty of rumors on who will be the next head man in Baton Rouge. Who will it be? There are some very big names being floated this week. Let's break down that situation -- and more -- before we make some picks straight up and against the spread from a relatively light SEC slate this weekend. 

Appetizer: Where will LSU turn?

The inevitable became reality on Sunday when LSU announced that it will move on from Coach O. That, of course, stirred up plenty of speculation. Penn State's James Franklin is the betting favorite to take over the Tigers, according to SportsLine, followed closely by Ole Miss' Lane Kiffin and Michigan State's Mel Tucker. The new coach shouldn't be any of those three, nor should it be Texas A&M's Jimbo Fisher, for that matter.

Louisiana coach Bill Napier would be a phenomenal fit in Baton Rouge, and should be able to bring the program back into contention in the SEC West. Napier is coming off of two straight double-digit win seasons, is well on his way to a third as the Ragin' Cajuns sit at 5-1, led the team to a top-20 finish in 2020 and has recruiting connections throughout the southeast. He runs a multi-dimensional offense that uses spread concepts with the foundation of a power running game, which is exactly what LSU ran two years ago when it won the national title.
