Week 11 Predictions
Sorry these are a day late. I was busy being the winning pitcher in an epic men’s softball game last night.
This Week: 6-3
Last Week: 10-1
Overall: 88-21 (80.7%)
Tennessee at Ole Miss – This could actually be a really good game. Tennessee has been hot of late, and Ole Miss has been, well, Ole Miss. But you have to expect the recent arrests of the geniuses from Tennessee to have some sort of effect on the team. Even so, Tennessee should win considering how well they’ve played recently. Whoever thought Crompton would be playing better than Jesus Snead?
Tennessee 31, Ole Miss 21
Ole Miss 42, Tennessee 17 – FAILURE
Kentucky at Vanderbilt – This is my favorite game of the year…not. Ok, that was cool like 15 years ago. Maybe this game was too…not.
Kentucky 38, Vanderbilt 14
Kentucky 24, Vanderbilt 13 – SUCCESS!
Florida at South Carolina – When is the Spurrier/Florida storyline going to go away or at least fade a little? Every year we are fed this game as a huge rivalry…or something. South Carolina always hangs around and Florida wins. Same story every year. It won’t be any different this time around.
Florida 28, South Carolina 17
Florida 24, South Carolina 14 – SUCCESS!
Louisiana Tech at LSU – Louisiana Tech isn’t a bad team and LSU has to be down after their loss last week. Who thinks that all the sidelines at Tiger Stadium will be painted in fluorescent yellow? Tech keeps it interesting and LSU pulls away at the end.
LSU 30, Louisiana Tech 14
LSU 24, Louisiana Tech 16 – SUCCESS!
Alabama at Mississippi State – Dan Mullen is calling for his stadium to be full and loud for this one. Should he have to say that? Who wants to bet Alabama wins by a lot less than Auburn beat Mississippi State by? This one will be boring.
Alabama 23, Mississippi State 13
Alabama 31, Mississippi State 3 – SUCCESS!
Troy at Arkansas – I would love for Troy to win this one. I seriously would. Arkansas is my new most hated team not named Alabama, and yes it’s because they beat us. It probably won’t happen though.
Arkansas 41, Troy 31
Arkansas 56, Troy 20 – SUCCESS!
Auburn at Georgia – For the third year in a row this game doesn’t mean much to those outside the two fan bases. Who cares? Both of these teams need this win, and Auburn wants it too. Soulja Boy on the 50-yard line after a big victory…who’s with me?
Auburn 38, Georgia 28
Georgia 31 Auburn 24 – FAILURE
Other Games That Might Tickle Your Fancy
Iowa at Ohio State – This is the game that Iowa was supposed to lose to end their BCS chances. Oh well, they’ll lose anyway, and somehow Ohio State is going to get into a BCS bowl with a loss to Purdue.
Ohio State 24, Iowa 17
Ohio State 27, Iowa 24 – SUCCESS!
Stanford at USC – You would think Stanford would win this one. USC is down for USC. Stanford is up for Stanford. But USC knows all that and will blow out the Cardinal.
USC 38, Stanford 10
Stanford 55, USC 21 – FAILURE
Upset of the Week
West Virginia at Cincinnati – I kinda just want this one to happen. It would help Auburn’s resume and clear up the BCS picture so we can stop talking about all the undefeated teams. Plus, Cincinnati shouldn’t be talked about in national title talk. They just shouldn’t.
West Virginia 27, Cincinnati 24
Cincinnati 24, West Virginia 21
