SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 4

By Jess Nicholas TideFans.com Editor-In-Chief Sept. 19, 2017 Last week’s record: 5-5 (50.0%) Season record: 31-5 (86.1%) The wheels came off in a big way for the Predictions Dept. in Week 3, as we were lucky to go five-up, five-down in what turned into a week of upsets. This week’s slate of games is no […]

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 3

For only the second time in our history, the Predictions Dept. has opened up with two perfect weeks in a row – and the record would likely have been better had Hurricane Irma not stolen the gimme pick of Florida over Northern Colorado from us. This week’s slate of games is headlined by Florida-Tennessee, and it’s tough to find a B-game pick. Either Ole Miss-Cal or Kentucky-South Carolina will have to do.

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 2

The Predictions Dept. got off to a home-run start in 2017, correctly hitting on all 14 SEC games in Week 1. For Week 2, things get a bit easier, as the toughest game on the board to pick is either Georgia-Notre Dame or Auburn-Clemson. Most SEC teams are taking a break after challenging openers.

SEC Preview and Predictions: Week 1

Week 1 in the SEC has turned into a mini-playoff week, and this year’s offerings – highlighted by Alabama/Florida State and Florida/Michigan – is no exception. The prevailing opinion among college football observers is the SEC is in for a down year overall, with a lack of challengers at the top (Alabama excepted, of course) and a mass of teams in the middle. If true, the Predictions Dept. has its work cut out for itself in 2017, as the always difficult task of picking winners gets harder and harder the more parity is present.

SEC Previews and Predictions: Week 13

Rivalry week is here, and for the first time perhaps since the inception of the SEC’s dual-division setup, there may not be a game on the list with any real consequences. Alabama goes to Atlanta no matter what it does against Auburn, and would still go to the College Football Playoff by winning the SEC Championship Game as a one-loss team. Really the only drama this week surrounds the teams needing a sixth win to get bowl-eligible.

The Predictions Dept. slid under the 80-percent mark for the first time this season on the back of a mediocre Week 11. Given the lack of competitive matchups this week, it would be difficult not to rise back above the 80-percent mark heading into Week 13. The rescheduled Florida-LSU game is by far the most intriguing of Week 12’s games, to the extent that Mississippi State-Arkansas is the next-best offering on the sheet.

Week 11 might be the first time ever – and the only time for the foreseeable future – where both the South Carolina-Florida and Kentucky-Tennessee games could produce decisive results for the division-winning candidacy of all four teams. Such is the case in the wacky SEC East, which ought to draft a circus clown car as its official logo for 2016.

The Predictions Dept. bounced back last week, missing only on Tennessee-South Carolina as the Volunteers entered full meltdown mode. This week, Alabama-LSU is undoubtedly the premier game in the conference, but Florida-Arkansas might get intriguing and Kentucky will try to keep its slim SEC East hopes alive while hosting Georgia.

A second consecutive poor week for the Predictions Dept. has caused us to reevaluate our feelings about several teams in the middle of the SEC pack. While Alabama is off this week, Bama fans won’t find much to look at from the rest of its conference neighbors. Auburn has the key game of the week, facing a tired and beaten-up Ole Miss squad, while Tennessee tries to avoid having its season fall apart when it visits defensive-minded South Carolina.

The Predictions Dept. finally had its first bad week of the year, going 50/50 on its picks. Thankfully, it was a small slate of games, so there wasn’t much damage to the season record. This week, Alabama has the headline game once again, but Arkansas-Auburn and Ole Miss-LSU will both bring plenty of drama.
