SEC Week 7 picks

Big weekend for both the SEC West and SEC East races. Enough talk ... get to predictions ...

LSU plays host to the Florida Crocodiles. Once again we face the consistency test. By all measures, the 2003 Tigers are better than the 2003 Crocs, but historically this is also when we fall apart.

But I am going to continue putting my faith in Nick and the boys. Chris Leak will be rattled and play even more freshman-like than he has so far; and our offense will continue to show good execution. LSU, 31 - 17

• Georgia at Tennessee - This is the game for the SEC East, barring any real collapses by the Dawgs or Vols later. As I've mentioned, I have not been all that impressed by Tennessee, but they are growing on me. And Knoxville is always, always tough for Georgia. And as much as I would like to see Georgia get another roadblock in its march to Atlanta, I don't see it happening here. UGA, 34 - 24

• Auburn at Arkansas - Apart from each of these teams' games against LSU, this is the game for the SEC West. After this week, Arkansas really only has the LSU game left as a challenge, so they need a loss here. Auburn still has to play Georgia and LSU, so my motivation is clear. And it looks like Auburn is about as good as people thought. So, Auburn, 21 - 17

• Kentucky at South Carolina - Hey, who knew this was a Thursday game? My bad. I'd have picked Kentucky to break out their offense here, so I'll take the loss. Kentucky, 100 - 0

• Southern Miss at Alabama - Meaningless unless you're Mike Shula. Alabama, 24 - 14

• Arkansas State at Ole Miss - Meaningless unless you're Eli Manning or Colonel Rebel, who'll be watching from home. Ole Miss, 42 - 10

• Memphis at Miss. State - Meaningless unless you're Jackie Sherrill. MSU, 28 - 20

• Navy at Vanderbilt - Just plain meaningless. Navy, 24 - 10
