SOUTH CAROLINA at ALABAMA (6:45 p.m. on ESPN)
Alabama is favored by 17 points.
How do you define a trap game? This could be it for Alabama. After a week of talk about a showdown with Florida in Atlanta, the Crimson Tide has to put aside the accolades from fans and the sweet talk on ESPN and contend with Steve Spurrier, a much improved Stephen Garcia and Ellis Johnson's swarm-to-the-ball defense. Spurrier may have motivation on his side. Has he had a team that's been a homecoming foe since leaving Duke? This one could be dangerous. But I feel Alabama remains the most complete team in the nation.
Alabama 27, South Carolina 13.
