Week 6 was not one to remember. A few upsets. A few beatdowns we didn’t think would happen. It just wasn’t a great week.
Last week: 4-5 (44.4%)
This week: 1-7 (12.5%)
Overall: 55-27 (67.1%)
It’s another SEC-heavy week, and these ain’t the easy ones to pick. Time to show what I’m made of.
Arkansas at BYU – Well look at this little matchup. The National Championship contending Hawgs head out West to take on another team given too much credit. They’ll embarrass the SEC.
BYU 31, Arkansas 21
Arkansas 52, BYU 35 – FAILURE
Vanderbilt at Georgia – Vandy will lead a Georgia after the 1st quarter, but lose by 40+.
Georgia 52, Vanderbilt 10
Georgia 55, Vanderbilt 0 – SUCCESS!
Alabama at Tennessee – What does it say about Tennessee and more importantly the national media that they’re all giddy that Tennessee might break the streak because Alabama’s quarterback is hurt. Should it even count?
Alabama 31, Tennessee 24
Tennessee 52, Alabama 49 – FAILURE
LSU at Florida – Remember when this one used to be good? LSU is better than what some really dumb plays against Tennessee made them look last week. Florida is not as good as some of their wins have looked, but they’re at home in the Swamp.
Florida 24, LSU 20
LSU 45, Florida 35 – FAILURE
Mississippi State at Kentucky – It’s been good to see Kentucky flounder the last two weeks, but it’s been equally sucky to see Mississippi State score hundreds of points. I want my cake and eat it, too.
Mississippi State 42, Kentucky 17
Kentucky 27, Mississippi State 17 – FAILURE
Auburn at Ole Miss – Check back later for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: Rebels just don’t beat Tigers.
Auburn 31, Ole Miss 24
Ole Miss 48, Auburn 34 – FAILURE
Other Games of Note
Penn State at Michigan – Remember Penn State? They are undefeated. Michigan? Undefeated, too. But they’ve also played the easiest schedule known to man. Seriously, have you heard a thing about Michigan all year? Yet they are 6-0 and ranked #5. Penn State has played well in a loud stadium before.
Penn State 27, Michigan 21
Michigan 41, Penn State 17 – FAILURE
Oklahoma State at TCU – TCU has gotten lots of credit for beating a bad Oklahoma and media-darling Kansas. Oklahoma State has mullet power and knows how to use it. It won’t be that close.
Oklahoma State 38, TCU 17
TCU 43, Oklahoma State 40 – FAILURE
