It should be a wild weekend of college football, and after the upsets of Week 4 now have the season wide open, we’ve got the opening spreads for what will be one of the most anticipated games of the year.

Teacher finally meets former pupil when Nick Saban and Alabama takes on Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss. The Rebels have one of the best offenses in the country, and if anyone can get points on the Crimson Tide it will be the Rebels. But will Mississippi be able to slow down Bryce Young and the ‘Bama offense? It should be a shootout in Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Arkansas has been the darling of college football so far this season, but they’ll run into the No. 1 statistical defense in the sport in Georgia on Saturday. Sam Pittman got the biggest win of his young career against Texas A&M on Saturday, but Georgia provides a different level of resistance.
