Here’s what to watch before and after the Gators play.

James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Halloween, football fans! Hopefully, this evening the Gators will give us quite the treat by beating Georgia. Florida takes on the Bulldogs today in Jacksonville at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. The Gators are in control of the SEC East race and can almost clinch a berth to the SEC title game with a win today. Once again on paper this week's slate of games doesn't look to be the strongest but I said that last week and then this happened. Such is the wonderful volatility of college football.

Here are our picks for today's viewing windows:

Early (noon to 3:30 p.m. Eastern)

Mississippi at Auburn (noon, ESPN): Ole Miss got some of its mojo back last week but how much of that was the result of true improvement or of facing the spiraling Texas A&M Aggies?

South Carolina at Texas A&M (noon, SECN): Speaking of those Aggies, and speaking of teams that are spiraling, the Gamecocks travel to College Station.

Evening (7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern)

Tennessee at Kentucky (7:30 p.m., SECN): Stop me if you've heard this one before - Tennessee narrowly lost to a good team it had a lead on last week, while Kentucky was shellacked (by Mississippi State). I have no idea what is going to happen with these two in this game.

Notre Dame at Temple (8:00 p.m., ABC): The College GameDay game of the week. The surprising Owls are unbeaten and boast college football's No. 14 defense*. The Irish should prevail, but it figures to be a low-scoring affair.

Stanford at Washington State (10:30 p.m., ESPN): This one is for all you night owls out there. This game was the runner up for College GameDay this week. Washington State is a surprising 5-2 and Stanford looks like one of the best teams in the country, making this an important Pac 12 North matchup.

*Take a look at the top 25 - Florida is No. 17 ... and will be playing three of the top 25 defenses in consecutive games (No. 19 LSU, No. 15 Georgia and No. 21 Vanderbilt).
