ESPN’s SP+ predicts every SEC Week 8 game
Saturday’s college football slate features seven SEC matchups. And if any of the conference’s top teams lose this week, it’ll be because of an upset.
There are six ranked SEC teams in action on Saturday, all of which are facing an unranked opponent. No. 1 Alabama (vs. Tennessee) and No. 2 LSU (at Mississippi State) are looking to stay undefeated while No. 9 Florida (at South Carolina) and No. 10 Georgia (vs. Kentucky) aim to bounce back from its first losses of the season.
On Wednesday, ESPN released its SP+ predictions for this week, as tweeted by writer Bill Connelly. Per ESPN, SP+ is a “tempo and opponent-adjusted measure of college football efficiency” that is intended to be predictive and forward-facing, measuring the most sustainable and predictable aspects of football.
Here are all of ESPN’s SP+ SEC predictions for Week 8:
Auburn 34, Arkansas 16
Florida 27, South Carolina 21
LSU 38, Mississippi State 24
Missouri 40, Vanderbilt 16
Georgia 39, Kentucky 15
Texas A&M 31, Ole Miss 23
