Week 9 offshore SEC point spreads released
It’s been a long wait but The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party is finally upon us.
This will be the first matchup between Kirby Smart and Dan Mullen in this series, although the two have faced off once before as head coaches and did so annually when Smart was an assistant on Nick Saban’s Alabama teams. Georgia beat Florida 42-7 last season, which is a big reason why Mullen is now roaming the sidelines in Gainsville. The Bulldogs hold the edge in the all-time series, at 50-43-2. Both teams will enter this game at 7-1 overall and 4-1 in SEC play.
The Tennessee-South Carolina game could determine which one of these programs end up going to a bowl game this season. With the Vols at 3-4 on the season and the Gamecocks at 3-3 (with one game already been canceled), this one appears to be a must-win for both programs. South Carolina has won the previous two matchups, but Tennessee holds the all-time edge 25-9-2. The previous six matchups have been decided by six points or less.
Mississippi State has also beaten Texas A&M two years in a row and hold the all-time edge at 6-5. Kentucky has defeated Missouri three years in a row and five times in the series 8-game series. Arkansas and Vanderbilt have not met since 2011, in a game won by the Razorbacks 31-28 in Nashville.
