SEC Week 10 Predictions

No, I don’t have much enthusiasm for college football right now. But I shall at least make picks.

Tulane comes in to Baton Rouge to face the Tigers. What the hell am I to make of the Greenies? 36th nationally in total offense, but 95th in scoring offense. 33rd in total defense but 80th in scoring defense. Does not compute. Does Tulane drive to the opponents’ one-yard line and then just hand the ball to a linebacker and let him run it back for a touchdown? Bizarre.

But this is a team that lost by 31 to Army and 25 to Rice.

LSU 45 – 27

Elsewhere in the SEC:

No. 6 Georgia and No. 8 Florida. The Gators bring a better defense than LSU and a better offense as well. Georgia allowed 497 yards in the LSU game. And the Gators have a lot to prove after losing last year.

Florida 41 – 34

Auburn at Ole Miss. Both teams are 4-4 and 2-3 in conference play. But the feelings about those results could not be more different in Oxford and Opelika. Dare I say Auburn finally figures out a way to move the ball consistently? Had Ole Miss performed better against Arkansas, I would probably pick them here.

War Eagles 17 – 16

Tennessee at South Carolina. They say it’s the game to save Phil Fulmer’s job. There’s not much reason to see a chance for Tennessee here, but anything is possible.

Cocks 14 – 9

Kentucky at Mississippi State. A real stinker between teams that are both 1-3 in conference play. Too many important guys out for the ‘Cats, but Croom doesn’t bring much to the table. I’ll go with the ‘Cats defense here.

Kentucky 20 – 17

Tulsa at Arkansas. Tulsa throws up 624 yards and 56 points a game. Seriously. Yes, it’s against bad competition, but that’s what Arkansas is.

Golden Hurricane 42 – 20

Arkansas State at Alabama. Seems like years since Fonzie’s boys played a good team.

Tide 38 – 13
