We all think we’d make great headline writers, but it’s actually more difficult than it looks.

Coming up with something short, simple and witty that can tell the story of an entire football game in just a fraction of a sentence is a unique skill.

This season, we’re going to have some fun trying to predict the headlines you’ll read about your favorite team in your local paper on Sunday morning.

We’re at a disadvantage, of course, because we don’t know how the game will turn out. That’s the part of the prediction that makes things interesting.

Here are our headline predictions for Saturday’s games in  Week 12:

Alabama (vs. Charleston Southern): Option denied

There has been quite a bit of fabricated drama from Nick Saban about the difficulties of stopping the option attack of FCS opponent Charleston Southern, but don’t be fooled. He’s just trying to keep the team focused in advance of the Iron Bowl.

Arkansas (vs. Mississippi State): What a run!

The Razorbacks have been as hot as any team in college football during the last month. Arkansas has a great opportunity to push its winning streak to five games, and if it does, it will likely be thanks to continued offensive success behind the blend of RB Alex Collins and experienced QB Brandon Allen.

Auburn (vs. Idaho): Tigers win Potato Bowl

With the Iron Bowl coming next week, it is important that Auburn beats Idaho to gather the sixth win necessary to ensure that the Tigers will play in an actual bowl game in the postseason.

Florida (vs. Florida Atlantic): Gators hootin’ and hollerin’ after win

Too much pun? Probably. But seriously, Florida should handle the Owls without much trouble.

Georgia (vs. Georgia Southern): One down, one to go

In reference to playing the Bulldogs’ two neighboring option offensive machines. Georgia is likely to get the best of Georgia Southern this weekend. With Georgia Tech on the docket for Week 13, defending the option has only just begun.

Kentucky (vs. Charlotte): FINALLY!

In a sarcastic nod to the end of a five-game winning streak, that one simple word should suffice for a win against a Charlotte team that is, frankly, not very good.

LSU (at Ole Miss): Mad Hatter Meltdown

The Tigers just don’t look like the team they were earlier in the season, and with Les Miles having to answer questions about his job security in the week leading into a trip to play the league’s most dangerous offense, things just aren’t lining up for a happy ending to this week’s story.

Missouri (vs. Tennessee): Pinkel Party!

Win or lose, this day should be about celebrating the years that Missouri coach Gary Pinkel has poured into the program during his final game at Memorial Stadium. It so happens that he’s 3-0 against Tennessee and needs one more win to become bowl eligible, so why not make it 4-0?

Mississippi State (at Arkansas): Two duds in a row

The Alabama game was a huge letdown for Mississippi State. If the Bulldogs aren’t careful, they could let that game beat them twice, as they’ll need to be on top of their game offensively to keep up with an Arkansas team that is as hot as any in the country.

Ole Miss (vs. LSU): Rebs run over Tigers

Rested and ready from a Week 11 bye, Ole Miss has a chance at redemption from a heartbreaking overtime loss to Arkansas in Week 10. LSU is not built to play from behind, so if Chad Kelly and crew jump out in front early, this could be a big win for the Rebels.

South Carolina (vs. The Citadel): Gamecocks too big, fast for Bulldogs

There is no doubt The Citadel, which is 7-3 on the season, sees an opportunity to repeat the magic of 1990’s upset of the Gamecocks. But the Gamecocks are too big, fast and motivated under interim coach Shawn Elliott to let something like that happen.

Tennessee (at Missouri): Road woes bite Vols

Butch Jones is 4-9 in road games during his three-year tenure at Tennessee, and he has yet to beat Missouri. While Tennessee is likely the better team this year, the emotion that is likely to fill Memorial Stadium for Gary Pinkel’s final home game will make for a very tough place to get a win for a team that struggles away from home.

Texas A&M (at Vanderbilt): Aggies survive Nashville scare

Texas A&M is making its first visit to Vanderbilt, and they’ll be greeted by a defense that has made a habit of holding teams under 20 points. It’ll be up to the Aggies defense to keep a weak Vanderbilt offense in check, because 20 points from the offense needs to be good enough to win.

Vanderbilt (vs. Texas A&M): Bowl bubble bursts for Vandy

At 4-6, the Commodores have been holding out hope that they may be able to beat Texas A&M and Tennessee to qualify for the postseason, but those two teams seemingly have too much offense for Vanderbilt to keep up with. Even though a 5-7 bid is supposedly a possibility, the Commodores need this game.
