The SEC has some key divisional matchups this week, with Alabama hosting Arkansas, Georgia traveling to Tennessee and Florida looking to take control of the East at Missouri.
Here are my SEC Week 6 Picks:
Saturday, October 10
10 New Mexico State at #14 Ole Miss 70
The Rebels will most likely put up 70 points for the third time this season.
41 #7 LSU at South Carolina 13
South Carolina may be the worst team in the conference and they may be going up against the best. They also have to travel to Baton Rouge after the devastating floods in South Carolina forced them to move the game. I like Leonard Fournette rushing for 200+ yards for the fourth straight game.
34 #19 Georgia at Tennessee 30
Tennessee has been a huge disappointment so far and it looks like it will only get worse in the coming weeks. The Vols will host the Bulldogs on Saturday and travel to Tuscaloosa in two weeks to face Alabama. The main question for Tennessee is can they hold onto a lead, as they’ve already blown two this season. Georgia is coming off a blowout loss to the Crimson Tide, but still control their destiny in the East. I like Nick Chubb to continue is 100-yard streak and the Bulldogs to beat the Vols late in Knoxville.
10 Troy at Mississippi State 48
Dak Prescott should look like his old self in this easy win for the Bulldogs.
6 Arkansas at #8 Alabama 31
A few months ago I thought this game would be a real test for Alabama, but now I think it’s an easy win after watching them take care of business at Georgia. The Razorbacks have already lost three games with their offense struggling to put points on the board against decent competition, so just imagine what the Crimson Tide defense will do.
24 #11 Florida at Missouri 17
Florida holds their destiny in the East and will look to get one step closer to the SEC Championship Game against the two-time defending division champion. Both teams will be starting freshman quarterbacks and both have very talented defenses, which makes this game a real interesting one to watch. I love the way the Gators play and think they’re too much for the Tigers to handle.
