Well, about now, every week is a tough week to pick games in the SEC. But I’m starting to get sad that the season is getting toward the end. Still, Basketball’s right around the corner and that should be another exciting season of SEC sports.
Arkansas State at Alabama – Alabama’s on a roll, no pun intended. Undefeated, #2 in the nation and AR State coming to town? If I were Arkansas State, I’d go ahead and take the check, not show up and save the players from injury and embarrasment. Alabama 45 Arkansas State 0
Tulsa at Arkansas – This is an interesting game. Tulsa is in the top 20 and Arkansas owns the cellar in the SEC West. On paper, Tulsa should win. But, I just have this feeling the Hogs will pull this one out. Arkansas 27 Tulsa 24
Auburn at Ole Miss – Tuberville coming to Nutt’s house is another interesting game. Auburn is tanking in a bad way and Ole Miss not only hates Tuberville but they’re looking at that rare bowl possibility this year. I wonder if the Tigers haven’t already thrown in the towel. The grove will be fired up this week (not from smoking). Ole Miss 24 Auburn 14
Florida vs. Georgia (Jacksonville) – You just have to love weeks like this where good solid teams play some college football. This one’s a toss up. Tebow’s playing well and Moreno is also playing pretty well. I’m not sure who really to pick in this one. I guess I’ll give the edge to Florida on behalf of my friend preacherpen. Florida 34 Georgia 31
Kentucky at Mississippi State – This game will be decided by which team the respective University decides to bring. I keep waiting for Mississippi State to step it up a notch and I’m hoping this will be the beginning. Kentucky’s no slouch and is playing for a bowl game. MSU 21 Kentucky 14
Tulane at LSU – I can’t believe anyone at Tulane thinks they have a shot at this one. Root for the underdog but expect LSU to wear ’em out. LSU 52 Tulane 3
Tennessee at South Carolina – What can I say? Tennessee all but stinks this year (though they did end up blowing my Dawgs out). The Gamecocks are playing decent, better than TN, anyway. SC will be at home for this one and I think the Vols are looking ahead to a new coach. South Carolina 27 Tennessee 21
