SEC Week 9 Predictions

Its time for SEC weekly previews. Every week I will predict all the games for that weekend that feature at least one SEC team.

Last week was sheer chaos in the SEC. There were six SEC match ups and five of them ended in upsets. This week there are far less exciting games, and the upsets are even more unlikely.

Vanderbilt @ Texas A&M

Vanderbilt is coming off a huge home win over Georgia. The Commodores scored seventeen unanswered points in the fourth quarter to knockoff the Bulldogs by four. Last week Texas A&M lost their second game of the season, at home to Auburn. The Aggies could not contain the Tiger offense allowing 45 points including 21 in the fourth quarter. Beating a Georgia team without several key players is one thing, beating the Aggies at home is another.

Final Score: Vanderbilt 24 Texas A&M 45

Idaho @ Ole Miss

Ole Miss pulled off a huge upset, last Saturday, over a LSU team that was previously ranked sixth in the country. The Rebels were without several key players due to injury, but were still able to take down the Tigers with a last second 41 yard field goal by Andrew Ritter. Idaho has been horrendous this season. They have been blown out in five of their seven games this season. Ole Miss will push that total to six.

Final Score: Idaho 10 Ole Miss 41

 Furman @ LSU

LSU is coming off a last second loss to Ole Miss, that practically crushed their SEC and National Championship hopes. Lucky for LSU, the Furman Paladins are coming to Baton Rouge this weekend. For a complete preview click here. Furman is simply a punching bag that LSU is paying to play.

Final Score: Furman 3 LSU 38

Tennessee @ Alabama

Tennessee earned a huge SEC victory last week knocking off South Carolina. However, the Vols are in for a rude awakening this weekend as the travel to Tuscaloosa to take on the Crimson Tide. The Alabama defense looked weak against Mike Evans and the Texas A&M offense in their second game of the season, but since then the defense has been dominate. They have looked like the top defense in the country, allowing a single touchdown in the past five games. Tennessee will fail to find the end zone.

Final Score: Tennessee 3 Alabama 45

Florida Atlantic @ Auburn

Auburn broke into the national spotlight after taking out the previously seventh ranked Texas A&M Aggies on the road. The victory vaulted the Tigers up 13 places in the rankings. Auburn is in no danger of losing this weekend. They face a Florida Atlantic team that has not faired well this season against weak competition.

Final Score: Florida Atlantic 10 Auburn 38

South Carolina @ Missouri

Missouri had few expectations surrounding the team entering the season. Now the Tigers find themselves at 7-0 and ready to make a push towards a berth in the National Championship Game. South Carolina will try to rebound from giving Tennessee their first SEC victory of the season. Last week, Missouri proved they can win without James Franklin, and they will do it again on Saturday.

Final Score: South Carolina 24 Missouri 48
