As has been the case throughout this season with our predictions column, Week 4 had a couple of predictions nearly work out (said Trayveon Williams would have 140 rush yards, he finished with 128; correctly predicted Jerry Jeudy’s receiving TD total of 2). But the ones that missed were dreadful (predicted DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown would have 210 yards combined, and the duo finished with only 62).

While the goal is always to get every prediction 100 percent correct, for Week 4, I want to get at least one prediction per category correct. Start small and work my way back.

Most Passing Yards
1. Jordan Ta’amu, Ole Miss (vs. Kent State)

Prediction: 375 yards
Why? After dealing with Alabama’s defense last week, Ta’amu should get back in the swing of things, especially facing the second-worst pass defense in the MAC in Kent State. Plus, in his last three games against non-SEC opponents, Ta’amu is averaging 400.7 passing yards per game.

2. Kyle Shurmur, Vanderbilt (vs. South Carolina)

Prediction: 300 yards
Why? Shurmur showed off what he can do passing when he threw for 326 yards in last week’s narrow loss at Notre Dame. While South Carolina has the reputation for being a tough defense, this season the Gamecocks are allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete 78.4 percent of their passes. That is the highest opponent’s completion percentage in the entire FBS.

3. Drew Lock, Missouri (vs. Georgia)

Prediction: 300 yards
Why? Yes, Missouri is facing one of the nation’s toughest defenses in Georgia. But Lock is starting to prove he can get his yards against anyone. The last time these teams met in Columbia in 2016, Lock threw for 376 yards in a one-point loss.

Most Passing Touchdowns
1. Jordan Ta’amu, Ole Miss (vs. Kent State)

Prediction: 4
Why? Again, this team has probably the top passing offense in the SEC, and the Rebels next face a Golden Flashes team that allowed 346 yards through the air to Penn State last week. Two weeks ago Ta’amu had 5 TD passes against Southern Illinois.

2. Jarrett Stidham, Auburn (vs. Arkansas)

Prediction: 2
Why? Last year’s first-team All-SEC quarterback has yet to get it going this season, with just a single TD pass in each of his first three games. Expect that to change against the Razorbacks, who have already allowed multi-TD passing games to Eastern Illinois and Colorado State.

3. Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama (vs. Texas A&M)

Prediction: 2
Why? Dating back to last season, Tagovailoa has thrown for 2 or more touchdowns in the last five games he has played. No reason to think he can’t continue that streak at home against the Aggies.

Most Rushing Yards
1. D’Andre Swift, Georgia (at Missouri)

Prediction: 120 yards
Why? Swift’s career high for rushing yards in a game came last season against … Missouri. With 94 yards on just 6 carries against the Tigers, Swift proved he doesn’t need the ball a lot to be a factor. True, the Tigers have the top-ranked rushing defense in the SEC (74.7 YPG). But opponents have only 75 rushing attempts against Missouri, the second fewest in the SEC.

2. Damien Harris, Alabama (vs. Texas A&M)

Prediction: 115 yards
Why? Yes, it looks as though Harris will be splitting time in the backfield all season with Najee Harris. So far this season, Damien Harris has just 24 carries in three games. But last season, he had 26 carries through three games and still managed a 1,000-yard season. In last year’s meeting with the Aggies in College Station, Damien Harris rushed for 124 yards on just 14 carries.

3. Scottie Phillips, Ole Miss (vs. Kent State)

Prediction: 100 yards
Why? The Rebels offense will not be limited to the passing game in this matchup. After he got shut down by the Alabama defense last week (44 yards), we’re looking for Phillips to return to his form of the first two games, when he rushed for a total of 311 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Rushing TD
1. Nick Brossette, LSU (vs. Louisiana Tech)

Credit: Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Prediction: 3
Why? Brossette hasn’t scored a touchdown on the ground since the Tigers’ Week 1 win over Miami, when he scored twice. That will change this weekend against a Bulldogs team that allowed 3 rushing touchdowns against South Alabama in their season opener. LSU’s passing offense is still, to be nice, a work in progress. That means the scores may have to come from somewhere else. Bank on Brossette getting in the end zone a lot Saturday.

2. Nick Fitzpatrick, Mississippi State (at Kentucky)

Prediction: 2
Why? Scoring touchdowns is what Fitzpatrick does, pure and simple. The senior QB is coming off a 4-touchdown game on the ground against Louisiana last week, and in his last two games against Kentucky, Fitzpatrick rushed for a pair of scores in each.

3. JaTarvious Whitlow, Auburn (vs. Arkansas)

Prediction: 2
Why? Auburn’s rushing game has actually been disappointing this season. Sure, the Tigers put up 429 yards on the ground in Week 2, but that came against Alabama State. In their other two games, against Washington and LSU, the Tigers have failed to rush for 150 yards. But one constant has been Auburn’s ability to get the ball in the end zone on the ground, which is what Whitlow has shown he can do, with a TD against both the Huskies and Tigers.

Receiving Yards
1. A.J. Brown, Ole Miss (vs. Kent State)

Prediction: 120 yards
Why? Because I refuse to give up on this player until I get his prediction right. Actually, over the last two seasons against non-Power 5 competition, Brown has put up ridiculous numbers: In his last four such games, he is averaging 9.5 catches and 183 receiving yards a game. No reason to expect those numbers to decline in this matchup.

2. Kalija Lipscomb, Vanderbilt (vs. South Carolina)

Prediction: 110 yards
Why? Outside of possibly Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy, there isn’t a receiver in the SEC on more of a roll than Lipscomb, who is coming off an 11-reception game at Notre Dame last week. In fact, Lipscomb has 21 catches over his last two games, and for the season he has an SEC-best 25 catches. The next goal is to have a 100-yard receiving game. Seems like a good spot for him this week.

3. Emanuel Hall, Missouri (vs. Georgia)

Prediction: 100 yards
Why? Hall is arguably the best wide receiver in the SEC and a major deep-ball threat, with 6 30-yard receptions already this season, the most in the entire FBS. While he may be slowed down by the Bulldogs’ defense, he may not. In last year’s meeting in Athens, Hall had 141 yards on just 4 catches.

Receiving Touchdowns
1. Jerry Jeudy, Alabama (vs. Texas A&M)

Credit: Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Prediction: 2
Why? Jeudy has made this column a little easier, because it has become simple to pencil his name in this category each week. To recap Jeudy’s season to this point, he has just 11 catches in three games, but more than half of those receptions 6 have gone for touchdowns. With the Rebels possessing one of the worst defenses in the nation, I’m expecting Jeudy to have his fourth straight 2-TD game.

2. A.J. Brown, Ole Miss (vs. Kent State)

Prediction: 2
Why? Remember the numbers I wrote about concerning Brown against non-Power 5 competition? The one number I left out was 8, which is how many receiving touchdowns Brown has in those four games.

3. Darius Slayton, Auburn (vs. Arkansas)

Prediction: 2
Why? This may be a bit of a reach, since Slayton has never had a multi-TD game in his career. However, his single-game career high for receiving yards (146) came in last season’s win at Arkansas. Slayton got in the end zone for the first time in last week’s loss to LSU, and we’re hoping he doubles that up against the Razorbacks.
