SEC Week 14 Predictions

Just under the wire …

The 4-7 Razorbacks concern me for one reason – passing. No. 22 in the country and No. 2 in the SEC in pass offense against LSU’s No. 76 in the country / No. 11 in the SEC pass defense. But the good news is that Arkansas has the SEC’s worst defense and their biggest weakness is rush defense. This one might be another game nobody on LSU’s side will want to remember, but I have to think it’s winnable.

LSU 31 – 28

Elsewhere in the SEC:

Mississippi State at Ole Miss: The other Friday matchup shouldn’t be much of a challenge for the Rebels. If Nutt can close out his first season 8-4, he’ll have done a hell of a job up in Oxford.

Rebels 38 – 24

Auburn at No. 1 Alabama: Oh what a day it would be for War Eagle fans if Auburn were to wake up from its season-long sleep and rise up against Fonzie and the Tide. If ever there were a moment for an Iron Bowl shocker, this would be it. And I wouldn’t be too surprised if the unexpected happened – I just don’t expect it, obviously.

Bama 24 – 13

No. 4 Florida at No. 20 Florida State: The Gators also face a final challenge before the SEC Championship Game showdown with Alabama. It’s certainly possible that Florida hits a roadblock with the Seminoles, who have come on strong late in the season. Another one that should be good to watch, but I don’t see anything that suggests a Florida loss.

Gators 42 – 28

No. 22 Georgia Tech at No. 11 Georgia: I don’t see the Tech gimmick offense cracking UGA’s defense, especially in Athens.

Dawgs 34 – 27

South Carolina at Clemson: Eh, I’ll go with the Cocks.

South Carolina 27 – 24

Kentucky at Tennessee: The last hurrah for Phil Fulmer. I figure they can win this one for him.

Vols 19 – 16

Vanderbilt at Wake Forest: Battle of the 6-5 smart-kids schools. I’ll homer it up and root for a winning season for Vandy.

‘Dores 13 – 10

    Wow. Just wow. Two weeks in a row of being outplayed, outcoached, and outclassed. That was just utterly embarrassing. Forget a post-season bowl. None is deserved. I feel bad for the players that did play hard, but our Secondary is awful and at times, our defensive line just got caught with their thumbs up their butts.

    The National Champs looked more like National Chumps. I still love my Tigers, but damn, that was UGLY.

    This is par for the course. Les Miles has never instilled discipline in the tigers. They at like thugs for the most part. The freshman concer would jump around like a jackass every time the made a tackle, never mind it was a tackle 15 yards down field. Pitiful shameful and piss poor, something needs to be done. For one a D cornd. is needed. If a good one is not hired in the off season Les needs to be fired.
