  Bold predictions for Week 7 of the college football season There's some significant games in Week 7 of the college football season. Our staff makes its bold predictions for the biggest showdowns Saturday.The USA TODAY Sports college football staff — Jace Evans, Paul Myerberg, Brent Schrotenboer, Erick Smith, Eddie Timanus and Dan Wolken — weigh in with some bold predictions for Week 6 of the season:

The Tennessee Volunteers hope to spring a major upset on their home turf on Saturday afternoon when they host the second-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in an SEC cross-division matchup. The Vols (2-2) are trying to rebound after a disheartening 34-7 loss to Kentucky last week, and they are in the midst of a quarterback controversy. But they can run the ball and will try to control an Alabama offense that ranks fifth in the nation. The Tide routed Georgia 41-24 last week and are well on their way to another playoff appearance.
