Don’t blink guys, or the college football season will pass you by.
The season is already half gone, which is extremely depressing to think about.
Last week I went 7-1 with my picks. My lone miss was the LSU-Georgia game, as I picked LSU to narrowly defeat the Bulldogs in a low-scoring affair. Obviously I was nowhere close to being right.
Anyway here’s my week 6 picks. As always, feel free to tear them apart.
Georgia State @ #1 Alabama -55 12:21 PM ET
Chances are you’ll hear way more about Ha Ha Clinton Dix and his suspension than you will about Georgia State’s football team. This game will not be close at any point, no matter what Nick Saban says. Alabama will cruise to victory. Alabama 63 Georgia State 0
Arkansas @ #18 Florida -11.5 7:00 PM ET (ESPN2)
Arkansas gave Texas A&M a run for their money last Saturday and Florida’s team has been devastated by injuries.
But it’s still the Gators and it’s still the swamp.
Florida’s stout defensive front, even without Dominique Easley, will prevail in Gainesville. Florida 20 Arkansas 10
#24 Ole Miss @ Auburn +3 7:00 PM ET (ESPNU)
It’s a little bit of a surprise that Ole Miss is only a 3 point favorite, but the game is at Auburn.
Ole Miss looked better against Alabama than the score indicated last Saturday. I think they’ll handle Auburn fairly easily. Ole Miss 28 Auburn 13
#10 LSU @ Mississippi State +9.5 7:00 PM ET (ESPN)
This is yet another game where the low spread surprises me. LSU looked as good offensively against Georgia as they ever have. I think LSU will head into Starkville, MS and have their way with Mississippi State. LSU 45 Mississippi State 14
Kentucky @ #13 South Carolina – 21 7:30 PM ET
South Carolina is coming off a narrow victory over Central Florida and their starting QB, Connor Shaw isn’t 100% (but he’s expected to play).
So Kentucky has a chance right?
Not so fast my friend!
Kentucky is easily the worst team in the SEC. The Wildcats don’t stand a chance in Columbia (or anywhere really). South Carolina will roll. South Carolina 38 Kentucky 10
Missouri @ Vanderbilt 7:30 PM ET
This is a pick ‘em game and it’s understandable as to why. Missouri is undefeated, but Vanderbilt will be their first conference opponent of the season. I think Missouri is the better team, but I’m going to give the edge to Vandy at home. Vanderbilt 24 Missouri 17
#6 Georgia @ Tennessee +10.5 3:30 PM ET CBS Sports
A win by the Volunteers in this game could define Butch Jones’ season. The stage couldn’t be bigger. It’s Jones’ first home conference game, the Smokey Gray jerseys are being brought out and it’s a nationally televised game.
This game has the potential to turn into a shootout, which is not something the Vols would be comfortable with. I think the Vols will give the Bulldogs a run for the money, but I just don’t think Tennessee’s offense can outscore Georgia’s Georgia 38 Tennessee 28
