Week 10 Predictions: A Nice, Hearty Batch
Is it really Week 10 already? Man, time flies when you’re having… wait, this sucks. I did have a pretty great Week 9, though. If it wasn’t for stupid pride and homerism, I would’ve been perfect. Stupid pride and homerism.
Last Week: 7-1 (87.5%)
This Week: 8-1 (88.9%)
Overall: 88-25 (77.8%)
Week 10 has some good games. I mean, it has to be a good week anytime you have the Super Bowl to End All World Hunger: PART VI, right?
Mississippi State at Missouri – Raise your hand if you had any clue that this game was being played on Thursday? My hand is not raised. Weird things happen on Thursdays. We thought Maty Mauk was coming back, but now he’s suspended again for the season. Given the way Missouri’s offense has been without him, weirdness won’t be enough.
Mississippi State 28, Missouri 10
Mississippi State 31, Missouri 13 – SUCCESS!
Kentucky at Georgia – Georgia is in shambles. Kentucky is in basketball season. If this was in Lexington, I may go with the ‘Cats, though. I still have to think that the DWAGS can score enough to beat Kentucky. Maybe?
Georgia 20, Kentucky 17
Georgia 27, Kentucky 3 – SUCCESS!
Vanderbilt at Florida – The Gators have the luxury of watching the other two teams at the top of the SEC battle one out while they get to play Vanderbilt at home. I expect a slight letdown. I’m serious.
Florida 24, Vanderbilt 14
Florida 9, Vanderbilt 7 – SUCCESS!
Arkansas at Ole Miss – The Battle of the Two Teams Auburn Probably Should’ve Beaten Over the Last Two Weeks will come down to talent. Ole Miss has more. They’ll beat the Hawgs by as much as Auburn should’ve beaten them.
Ole Miss 34, Arkansas 20
Arkansas 53, Ole Miss 52 (OT) – FAILURE
South Carolina at Tennessee – South Carolina played okay against Texas A&M last week. Tennessee obliterated Kentucky. Both were on the road. The Gamecocks might have an extra pep in their step now that it’s somewhat of a new season without Spurrier, but playing at Tennessee will be too much for them.
Tennessee 38, South Carolina 21
Tennessee 27, South Carolina 24 – SUCCESS!
LSU at Alabama – I just tried to type things about this game and the universe wouldn’t let me. It’s just too important. The game is too much. The teams are too elite. The universe would not let opinions flow forth unless they were what I just said. All hail a one-loss team and a team that has barely left home en route to a probably overhyped record. We know nothing of good football without these two teams.
Alabama 17, LSU 14
Alabama 30, LSU 16 – SUCCESS!
Auburn at Texas A&M – Check back tomorrow for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: it all comes together?
Auburn 31, Texas A&M 28
Auburn 26, Texas A&M 10 – SUCCESS!
Other Games of Note
Florida State at Clemson – This is our last chance. All the times we hoped for Florida State to lose so they wouldn’t take up a spot at the top now meets the opposite fate. Clemson has one more game on their schedule. This is it. After that, they’ll have to beat somebody like Duke in the ACC Championship. Then it’s on to the playoff.
Florida State has a weird loss to Georgia Tech but they are good enough to win, but it won’t happen because the Devil loves Dabo in Death Valley.
Clemson 38, Florida State 28
Clemson 23, Florida State 13 – SUCCESS!
TCU at Oklahoma State – The Horned Frogs have been tested many times this season. Texas Tech nearly knocked them off. Kansas State nearly did as well. Oklahoma State is a little more legit than both of those teams, and they’ll do it in a big win in Stillwater.
Oklahoma State 45, TCU 41
Oklahoma State 49, TCU 29 – SUCCESS!
