The SEC West once again beat itself up and one team out of the College playoff, for now. We'll start with the East and Georgia's destruction of Kentucky. I have to admit, with the way Georgia had played and all Kentucky had done, I thought it would be a much better game. Ole Miss handled Presbyterian in the way I think we all knew they would. Texas A&M beat third ranked Auburn, which has knocked Auburn out of the 3rd spot in the playoff.
Mississippi State continued to win against UT Martin and kept the number 1 slot in the playoff. Florida handled Vanderbilt and continues to look better and better. Alabama won a close game in OT in death valley. I wasn't very high on Bama a couple of weeks ago, but now I am impressed and I think they are going to beat Mississippi State next week and jump up into the top 4.
I basically told you what was going on in the top four. With Mississippi State continuing to win, they stayed in first. Auburn lost and dropped and TCU jumped Alabama for the spot in the top four.
South Carolina will play Florida in this week, and I believe that Florida will continue to impress and get bowl eligible. Mississippi State plays Alabama in the game of the week. I believe that Alabama wins in another tight game. Mississippi State better hope for some other teams to lose or they may drop out of the top 4 and I am sure that Alabama will jump in with this victory.
Kentucky will play Tennessee. I like the Vols in this one. I think that Tennessee is a team on the rise and they know they need to win to get into the bowl picture. Auburn dropped all the way down to number 9. Georgia is now at 15. I think this will be a high scoring game with lots of yards racked up in the running game. The difference for me is the Quarterbacks and I like Auburn. Missouri will take another loss to Texas A&M.
LSU comes into Arkansas off the heals of a very disappointing loss. This is the trap game I've been talking about all year. Arkansas finally comes away with that ever elusive Conference win. LSU is good, but I think last week's failure will hurt them. Arkansas has been ramping up for this one all year. It's a much bigger rivalry for the Hogs and they ride that momentum to a big win.
