One bold prediction for every SEC game in Week 7
Here’s one bold prediction for every SEC game during the seventh Saturday of the college football season:
Vanderbilt at South Carolina — The Gamecocks readjust their offensive philosophy in Shawn Elliott’s first game as interim head coach and rush for more than 250 yards against the Commodores. It’s enough to cover and win going away, snapping a four-game SEC skid this season.
Alabama at Texas A&M — Much like the loss to Ole Miss earlier this season, Alabama falls behind by three touchdowns except this time, the Crimson Tide doesn’t recover and loses on the road by double digits. Spread offenses (particularly speed on the edges) continue to haunt Alabama.
Mizzou at Georgia — With special teams threat Isaiah McKenzie doubtful for Georgia, Reggie Davis once again picks up the slack with his second straight game with a punt return touchdown to lead the Bulldogs’ win.
Florida at LSU — One of the SEC’s best this season, the Gators’ defense shockingly holds Leonard Fournette to under 100 yards rushing and picks off two passes from Brandon Harris to suffocate the LSU offense.
Louisiana Tech at Mississippi State — Former Florida signal caller Jeff Driskel outplays Dak Prescott from a total yardage standpoint, but the Bulldogs force three turnovers to hold off Louisiana Tech.
Ole Miss at Memphis — Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch throws four touchdown passes and helps the Tigers take the lead in the fourth quarter, but the Rebels battle back to win thanks to a spirited scoring drive engineered by Chad Kelly. Memphis coach Justin Fuente’s stock rises.
