Week 4 Predictions: It’s Getting Real


Week 3 was also amazing. I went 12-1, and like Week 2, most of the scores were scary close. I don’t claim to be smart. I claim to be psychic.

Last week: 12-1 (92.3%)
This week: 7-4 (63.6%)
Overall: 42-9 (82.4%)

Week 4 is starting to get a little more real. There are conferences battles in the SEC and nationally. It’s almost like real football season is here.

9/21

Southern Miss at Alabama – Multiple Alabama families have a picture of Tyrone Prothro catching a pass against Southern Miss that eventually ended up helping the Crimson Tide narrowly defeat the Golden Eagles. Think about it. Auburn fans get grief for bragging about an Iron Bowl win in a year where Auburn didn’t the National Championship, but Alabama fans have a painting of a catch against Southern Miss in a season where all 10 wins were vacated. RTR.

Alabama 45, Southern Miss 10

Alabama 49, Southern Miss 7SUCCESS!

Tennessee at Florida – The Gators’ quarterback is out, but the narrative is that the backup is better. Sure he is. Tennessee finally got a win, but they won’t go to the Swamp and get another one. Not this year.

Florida 27, Tennessee 17

Florida 34, Tennessee 3 SUCCESS!

Cal at Ole Miss – Cal is actually decent? Ole Miss is not. Black eye for the SEC.

Cal 28, Ole Miss 21

Cal 28, Ole Miss 20 SUCCESS!

LSU at Vanderbilt – Did you know that LSU scores touchdowns this year? Do you care?

LSU 48, Vanderbilt 14

LSU 66, Vanderbilt 38 SUCCESS!

Kentucky at Mississippi State – The Wildcats should’ve beaten Florida. The Maroons lost to a Big 12 opponent, which you’d think would attract a crowd, in front of a half-empty stadium. The Maroons don’t care this year.

Kentucky 31, Mississippi State 21

Mississippi State 28, Kentucky 13 FAILURE

South Carolina at Missouri – The Gamecocks gave Alabama all they had last week. Missouri, since losing to Wyoming, has rattled off two wins. It will be the freshman QB against the QB that left Clemson at the first sign of adversity. Who will it be? ‘Cocks it is.

South Carolina 34, Missouri 28

Missouri 34, South Carolina 14 FAILURE

San Jose State at Arkansas – Arkansas barely beat Portland State, lost to Ole Miss, and kinda blew out Colorado State, so I’m not really sure what they are. But I know they are better than San Jose State. I think.

Arkansas 41, San Jose State 13

San Jose State 31, Arkansas 24 FAILURE

Notre Dame at Georgia – Here we go again acting like Notre Dame is going to hang just so we can prop up the team that beats them easily.

Georgia 35, Notre Dame 17

Georgia 23, Notre Dame 17 SUCCESS!

Auburn at Texas A&M – Check back later for my prediction in the game preview, but SPOILER ALERT: the gig is up.

Auburn 34, Texas A&M 17

Auburn 28, Texas A&M 20 SUCCESS!

Other Games of Note

Michigan at Wisconsin – I feel like both of these teams are always overrated, and will always win something they shouldn’t. Wisconsin has been the more consistent team over the last decade, but doesn’t get the cred that Michigan does. Badgers big.

Wisconsin 34, Michigan 14

Wisconsin 35, Michigan 14 SUCCESS!

Oklahoma State at Texas – The Fightin’ Mullets are undefeated. People still want Texas to be back. They aren’t.

Oklahoma State 48, Texas 38

Texas 36, Oklahoma State 30FAILURE
