Week 5 Picks

Alabama 21, Florida 13 – If The Tide can get steady play from it’s quarterback and keep Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps in check, they can escape Gainsville with a win.

Arkansas 35, Texas A&M 31 – The Hogs welcome aTm to the party with a loss. One concern: Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson received a slight concussion against Troy and was beaten up against Bama.

South Carolina 41, Auburn 31 – The October nightmare begins for the Tigers. The Gamecocks haven’t played well thus far, but can’t help but get untracked against Auburn.

LSU 56, Kentucky 6 – I don’t expect a hangover for LSU after the trip to West Virginia. Kentucky is not a good team, so the Tigers can name their score.

Ole Miss 24, Fresno State 23 – This is the toughest game of the week to pick. Which scheduling guru signed the Black Bears up for a game against Fresno? In Fresno? I guess that’s the way this season is going for Ole Miss. I have no logical reason for picking the Rebels other than they happen to play in the SEC.

Georgia 31, Mississippi State 17 – A huge game for both sets of Bulldogs. UGA is the better team and should win with ease.

Tennessee 52, Buffalo 17 – Tyler Bray should have another big game against a lesser opponent.

Vanderbilt – The Commodores have an off week to prepare for Bama.
