After an abysmal the last few weeks, last week got me back on track. D’s make degreez…
Last week: 7-3 (70.0%)
This week: 10-2 (83.3%)
Overall: 90-37 (70.9%)
For the majority of the SEC, it’s cupcake week. Not for Auburn, who plays a tough game or has a tough situation every week. Life’s not fair.
Charleston Southern at Georgia – The Dawgs take a step up from SEC East competition this week, hosting the Buccaneers from Charleston. It won’t be as easy as the Vanderbilts, Kentuckys, and Tennessees, but the talent gap will still be too much. Georgia big.
Georgia 57, Charleston Southern 3
Georgia 56, Charleston Southern 7 – SUCCESS!
New Mexico State at Kentucky – So the Aggies of New Mexico State flew to Tuscaloosa, got beaten by 56, flew back to New Mexico, and are now flying back to Kentucky this week. Talk about hating yourself.
Kentucky 41, New Mexico State 10
Kentucky 56, New Mexico State 16 – SUCCESS!
Tennessee State at Mississippi State – A week after paying off the refs, the Maroons should be able handle this one on their own. I hope Will Rogers is still able to walk around after the worst targeting call I’ve ever seen.
Mississippi State 48, Tennessee State 6
Mississippi State 55, Tennessee State 10 – SUCCESS!
Prairie View at Texas A&M – The Fightin’ Texas Aggies don’t care about beating anybody but Auburn and Alabama. Prairie View is not either of those, so they’ll lose.
Texas A&M 49, Prairie View 17
Texas A&M 52, Prairie View 3 – SUCCESS!
Arkansas at Alabama – If Arkansas beats Alabama, there is still a chance that Auburn could be part of a 6-way tie for the SEC West Championship. As much as Auburn deserves it, Arkansas is back to thinking they are good again because they beat LSU in overtime. Alabama isn’t good enough to destroy them, but it won’t be close.
Alabama 31, Arkansas 13
Alabama 42, Arkansas 35 – SUCCESS!
Florida at Missouri – One team has quit. One team shouldn’t be here. The team that shouldn’t be here hasn’t quit, so they will win by a good amount. Dan Mullen will be left on the runway.
Missouri 38, Florida 27
Missouri 24, Florida 23 – SUCCESS!
Vanderbilt at Ole Miss – I would say Vanderbilt has moved on to basketball season, but they just lost a game in which they only scored 37 points… in basketball. Ole Miss is clicking somewhat, but they did let Liberty hang around two weeks ago. They’ll need to watch out for that.
OIe Miss 45, Vanderbilt 20
OIe Miss 31, Vanderbilt 17 – SUCCESS!
South Alabama at Tennessee – South Alabama should’ve and could’ve beaten Alabama in basketball a few nights ago. Because they didn’t, Tennessee will beat them badly in football. This is just good analysis.
Tennessee 37, South Alabama 13
Tennessee 60, South Alabama 14 – SUCCESS!
UL-Monroe at LSU – The Warhawks are 4-6. LSU is 4-6. What a year for the State of Louisiana.
LSU 31, UL-Monroe 10
LSU 27, UL-Monroe 14 – SUCCESS!
Auburn at South Carolina – Check back tomorrow for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: we’ll be fine.
Auburn 35, South Carolina 17
South Carolina 21, Auburn 17 – FAILURE
Other Games of Note
Michigan State at Ohio State – The Buckeyes are kinda rolling. Michigan State is getting shafted in the polls, but they shouldn’t have lost to Purdue. Ohio State will end that drama.
Ohio State 24, Michigan State 14
Ohio State 56, Michigan State 7 – SUCCESS!
Oregon at Utah – Is Oregon the least talked about, less cared about #3 team of all time? You never see them play. They struggle with mediocre teams and win by like 13. They are living off a win over Ohio State in September. Utah has what it takes, but it won’t happen because the universe isn’t kind.
Oregon 27, Utah 23
Utah 38, Oregon 7 – FAILURE
