Gamecock Man's SEC Picks

It's rivalry week, so there should be some good games this weekend. Expect an upset out of either the Georgia-GA Tech or Auburn-Alabama games. I'm going to keep this pretty brief because I have things to do and still have to write a preview for the Clemson game.

Friday

Mississippi State at Ole Miss

This one is going on right now, and the Rebels are predictably mauling State. Look for a pretty big MOV for Houston Nutt's team, which is red-hot right now.

LSU at Arkansas

This one might be closer than you think because LSU is playing so poorly, but the Hogs are a terrible team and the Tigers should pull out the win late and take home the Golden Boot.

Saturday

Georgia Tech at Georgia

This is my upset pick of the week. Tech is playing well and will beat the disheartened Dawgs.

South Carolina at Clemson

More on this later tonight.

Auburn at Alabama

I wish I could say that Auburn will win here, but Bama is just a much better team this year. The Tigers will keep it closer than most expect, but the Tide will win en route to a beating at the hands of the Gators.

Florida at Florida State

Again, the talent differential is just too big here. FSU might keep it close early, but in the end the Gators will win by 21+.

Kentucky at Tennessee

If Kentucky doesn't win this game, they will never beat the Vols. I think the Cats will pull it out, though.

Vanderbilt at Wake Forest

Ole Miss's victory over LSU last week probably shot Vandy's chance of playing in the Peach Bowl, as LSU is now likely headed to Atlanta. That means that this game isn't quite as significant as it might be, as a win will do little to change the Dores bowl projection. They'd still like a win, though, although I think the Deacons will be too much for them.
