Looking back: Kirk Herbstreit’s ‘ESPN College GameDay’ picks for Week 13
Part of ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit’s job is to make predictions during ESPN’s “College GameDay.” Each week, we keep track of how the former Ohio State quarterback’s SEC prognostications are going for the 2015 season.
This week: 3-4
It was a losing week for Herbstreit as he and the GameDay crew picked a slew of SEC contests. The 3-4 record in Week 13 leaves him six games over the .500 mark for the season.
WIN: Alabama over Auburn — The Crimson Tide pulled away late behind a Heisman-worthy day from running back Derrick Henry.
LOSS: Florida over Florida State — The Gator offense was M.I.A. in a 27-2 loss to the Seminoles.
LOSS: Georgia Tech over Georgia — Herbstreit rolled the dice with the Yellow Jackets, but came up empty in a 13-7 loss.
LOSS: Kentucky over Louisville — The Wildcats started fast but faltered late in a 38-24 loss.
WIN: LSU over Texas A&M — The Tiger defense dominated, and Les Miles was carried off the field after an emotional win.
LOSS: Mississippi State over Ole Miss — The Rebels got off to a fast start and made it stand up to take a 38-27 win in the Egg Bowl.
WIN: Clemson over South Carolina — It was a bit closer than expected, but the top-ranked Tigers fought off the Gamecocks.
