The first SEC team they listed was Georgia at No. 4, and Palmer called it an “elite defense” and got the running game going a little bit against Auburn. Galloway said Georgia looked “terrific” against Auburn.
“If Stetson Bennett keeps playing the way he’s playing, he’s not going to relinquish the starting quarterback job,” Palmer said.
Galloway went went on to call Florida at No. 3 the best offense in the country, and the defense is playing pretty well.
Palmer said, “I think Kyle Trask is the biggest game-changer they’ve had at the quarterback position since Tim Tebow. He’s got a lot of weapons to throw to, they’re really good on special teams. (Evan) McPherson might be the best kicker in all of college football.”
He added the defensive looked improved against South Carolina, but there are still some question marks.
For No. 2, Palmer pegged Alabama and said Mac Jones is driving a Ferrari.
“He’s got tons of playmakers to throw the ball to, they’re going to light up the scoreboard and score points,” Palmer said.
