Gamecock Man's Week Seven SEC Picks

My accuracy was pretty dismal last week, so take these picks with a grain of salt.

Georgia Bulldogs at Vanderbilt Commodores

If Georgia were in their current tailspin last year, I would probably call for a Vandy victory here. However, the 'Dores are among the country's worst teams this year, so while this game might be close, I doubt they'll win. Expect Vandy's defense to keep things tight, but their offense just doesn't have enough to beat the 'Dawgs.

Mississippi St. Bulldogs at Middle Tennessee St. Blue Raiders

An SEC team traveling to Murfreesboro? What's the world coming to? MTSU actually beat Maryland earlier this year and may be able to give the Bulldogs a game. However, State has actually been playing quite well lately They just haven't been able to break through with a big win against what has been a pretty brutal schedule thus far. Look for the Bulldogs to come out fired up and win this one.

Arkansas Razorbacks at Florida Gators

Many pundits have called this a trap game for the Gators. I don't see it. Florida will move the ball at will against the soft Arkansas defense, and while the Hogs' offense isn't too shabby, it's weakness is a strong pass rush, an attribute the Gators have in spades. Watch for Ryan Mallett to be sacked early and often as Florida crushes Arkansas.

UAB Blazers at Mississippi Rebels

The Rebels get a breather as they attempt to regroup and figure out a way to get back in the mix for a major bowl bid.

Kentucky Wildcats at Auburn Tigers

The 'Cats have shown a bit of life over the last couple of weeks, but don't have much to show for it. Auburn, on the other hand, was demolished by Arkansas last week after a promising 5-0 start. How will the two teams respond? I'm thinking that Kentucky's offense is good enough to move the ball against Auburn, but if I were a 'Cats fan, I would worry that the transition from losing Mike Hartline will be a tough one. Auburn, on the other hand, should be able to score frequently against Kentucky. Expect a close Auburn win.
