Branching out this week in the absence of an Ole Miss game …
LSU at Texas A&M: Johnny Football is effective but not Superman in a losing effort against the best defense he’s seen so far this year.
Auburn at Vanderbilt: History makes it hard to get out all these keystrokes but … Vanderbilt.
South Carolina at Florida: Alabama and LSU are 1 and 2 in defense in the nation. Overlooked sometimes are South Carolina and Florida, 3 and 4 respectively in the SEC and 12 and 13 nationally. Lots of defense in this game but Florida’s run game will make the difference.
Alabama at Tennessee: Alabama.
Georgia at Kentucky: Georgia.
Middle Tennessee State at MSU: The Blue Raiders are third in the Sun Belt in scoring and won 49-28 at Georgia Tech. They won’t score enough points this week.
