IT picks the SEC


Posted Oct 26, 2012


InsideTennessee gives you great predictions, in addition to great coverage. Check out our latest projections on SEC football:

Florida can clinch the SEC East title Saturday by beating Georgia in the teams' annual Jacksonville junket. A victory would give the Gators a 7-0 league record and two-game lead in the loss column over the Bulldogs (4-2) and South Carolina (5-2 if it beats Tennessee) with just one conference game left on Florida's schedule.

InsideTennessee's Danny Parker, Josh Woodward and Randy Moore went 6-0 each on last week's SEC Picks, while Chris Price went 5-1. Parker holds a commanding five-game lead for the season. Below are their picks for this week, with year-to-date won/loss records in parenthesis:

DANNY PARKER (61-8)

Miss. State at Alabama: Johnathan Banks versus Amari Cooper will be fun to watch, but reality sets in for the Bulldogs this week. Alabama, 45-14.

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas (in Little Rock): Toughest call of the week. I'll go with the home team and Tyler Wilson. Arkansas, 39-28.

Texas A&M at Auburn: If an SEC team puts up 21 points on The Plains, it's going to leave victorious. Can't see the Aggies being held down. Texas A&M, 27-10.

Georgia vs. Florida (in Jacksonville): It's looking like the Gators will roll into the Georgia Dome to face Bama undefeated. Florida, 34-18.

Kentucky at Missouri: The Wildcats are getting closer, but close doesn't equal wins. Missouri, 32-20.

UMass at Vanderbilt: Get your gun powder ready! Minutemen versus Commodores. Let's go! Vanderbilt, 31-6.

Tennessee at South Carolina: I foresee images of Connor Shaw and Ace Sanders running wide open on green pastures. Yikes! South Carolina, 47-23.

CHRIS PRICE (56-13)

Miss. State at Alabama: Again, not picking against Bama, ever. Tide 38-10.

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas (in Little Rock): If this game was at Ole Miss I would go with the home team, but I don't think the Hogs drop this one. Arkansas 35-28.

Texas A&M at Auburn: Aggies help put the nail in Chizik's coffin. A&M 33-24.

Georgia vs. Florida (in Jacksonville): Florida is hot. Doesn't change this week. 34-20.

Kentucky at Missouri: Kentucky is awful. That is all. Tigers 24-7.

UMass at Vanderbilt: Anchor Down. 23-13.

Tennessee at South Carolina: Not picking the Vols against a ranked opponent. Why would I? Gamecocks 31-17.

JOSH WOODWARD (56-13)

Miss. State at Alabama: Well, after seeing both teams in person, Alabama should roll over State. Tide 32-10

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas (in Little Rock): Toughest pick of the week for me, I will go with Ole Miss. Rebels 24-20

Texas A&M at Auburn: Shouldn't be much of a game here. Texas A&M 42-20

Georgia vs. Florida (in Jacksonville): This has the potential to be a good game, but Florida is riding high and Georgia isn't. Gators 34-28

Kentucky at Missouri: The battle of the felines could be a close one, I'm going with Missouri. Tigers 28-24

UMass at Vanderbilt: Shouldn't be much of a game. Dores 35-10

Tennessee at South Carolina: Most whom have seen practice this week have seen no motivation for the Vols. Going with the Gamecocks. South Carolina 35-28

RANDY MOORE (56-13)

Miss. State at Alabama: Both beat Tennessee but one did so in convincing fashion. Tide, 34-13

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas (in Little Rock): I'll say this for Hugh Freeze: He's turned a Rebel roster I thought would be horrendous into a respectable team. Ole Miss, 41-31

Texas A&M at Auburn: I'll say this for Gene Chizik: He's turned a Tiger roster I thought would be respectable into a horrendous team. A&M, 38-10

Georgia vs. Florida (in Jacksonville): Florida has improved on a weekly basis and is playing as well as anyone in the NCAA lately. Gators, 41-21

Kentucky at Missouri: This is the best chance either team will have all year to get an SEC win. How's that for tension? Missouri, 27-24

UMass at Vanderbilt: I honestly didn't know UMass had a football program. Commodores, 42-14

Tennessee at South Carolina: The key question: How will the Vols find a way to lose this week? Gamecocks, 34-17
