Week Nine Picks

Arkansas 35, Vanderbilt 17 – The Hogs struggled with Ole Miss last week, but then again, it’s hard to get motivated to play the RBBs.  Don’t look now, but Arkansas is on a roll and could head into the season-ender against LSU with a 10-1 record.

Auburn 17, Ole Miss 14 – Good grief, what a game to pick.  Auburn couldn’t look much worse than they did last week against LSU.  But then again, LSU makes everyone look bad.  Look for the Tigers to rebound at home against the RBBs.  This looks to be one of the last two winnable games this year for Auburn.

Mississippi State 30, Kentucky 17 – The Dogs have struggled this year and if they hope to make a bowl, this is a must-win game.

Georgia 31, Florida 17 – If UGA loses this one, Mark Richt is back on the hot seat, but that won’t happen.  It also doesn’t matter who quarterbacks the Gators this week.

South Carolina 7, Tennessee 6 – If the Vols had Tyler Bray, this pick would have switched.  But they don’t.  Of course, the Gamecocks don’t have Marcus Lattimore, but they should have plenty of D and just enough O to pull this one out.

Alabama and LSU are off ahead of next week’s Game of the Year/Decade/Century/All-Time.
