PETE’S PIGSKIN PROGNOSTICATIONS

The usual suspects are on hand for the traditional suspension game openers for a lot of the SEC, but uncharacteristically, several SEC teams are actually playing teams that will be competitive. Fair warning…I know little, and care less, about Missouri and Texas A&M. There is virtually no press coverage of those teams in the Southeast. That may change if they start knocking off the big boys……
LAST WEEK (0-0)-----OVERALL (0-0)
First the traditional cupcakes:
Jacksonville State @
Central Arkansas @ Mississippi
Jackson State @
SE Louisiana @
La. Tech @
The SEC wins these games by an average of 29 points.
And now for the real games:
– Kentucky has sunk to the bottom of the SEC barrel, and will not be surfacing anytime soon. Louisville by 17.
in Atlanta – It’s been awfully quiet from the Auburn troops so far this fall. I look for a typical first game, with lots of mistakes by both teams. Auburn by 3.
in Arlington, TX – Why they are playing in Texas is a mystery to me. Makes no difference. The Tide rolls on. ‘Bama by 13.
N.C. State vs.
in Atlanta (Friday) - With all of the off-season distractions UTK really needed to have this game played at Neyland Stadium. Unfortunately, in Georgia the home field advantage will be largely negated. I wonder where the referees will be from…it might come down to that. Wolfies 27 – UTK 23.
(Thursday) - This will probably be published after the game, but is going to webmaster on Wednesday. The conference opener for both teams, and a lot of local and national interest. ESPN game, and the BLIMP will even be there. Looking forward to a real southern college football atmosphere (rare in Nashville) and an exceptionally good game. Coach Franklin has turned the ship around, but, like supertankers, it takes a while to get going in the other direction. Two more Franklin recruiting classes and Vandy wins this game, but they haven’t quite gotten up to the standard of beating a top ten team at home to begin the season. Gamecocks 27 – Vandy 20.
