WEEK 8
LAST WEEK (6-1)-----OVERALL (57-7)

Finally a weekend with no breathers. The SEC is keeping it in the family this time, with nothing but SEC games on the slate, and the two arguably weakest teams in the league (Kentucky and Mississippi State) are off. Oddly enough, those two teams play each other next week. That will be a real exercise in futility, reminiscent of past VU-UK games.

Arkansas @ Alabama – Did I say no cupcakes. Well, no SEC team is going to be a cupcake, but still…. Tide 35 – Arkansas 10

Auburn @ Texas A&M – The Aggies keep rolling along, but you’d better believe that they had better keep Johnny Football healthy. A&M 31 – Auburn 14

Florida @ Missouri – The tigers are a different team without James Franklin. It will take them more than a week to recover from his loss. Gators 24 – Mizzou 17

LSU @ Mississippi – LSU is cruising toward their showdown with the Tide in a couple of weeks. They could get a rude surprise this week if they don’t take care of business. Mississippi is physically capable of the upset, but after crashing and burning the last three weeks, I don’t think that they are psychically ready to make a statement. LSU 27 – Mississippi 20

South Carolina @ Tennessee – The Vols are just trying to survive the season, waiting for their next few Butch Jones recruiting classes to come in to help. Gamecocks 31 – UTK 17

Georgia @ Vanderbilt – Vandy has been outscored 54-17 in the first quarter this year. That includes games with Austin Peay (0-6), UMass (1-5), and UAB (2-4). Unless the Commodores figure out how to play a full game, chances for a win against even a banged-up and reeling Georgia team are virtually non-existent. UGA scores 21 in the first quarter and hangs on to win. UGA 34 – VU 24
