2019 SEC Pick of the Week – Week Fourteen
I can’t believe the college football season is almost over. Where does it all go? Oh, and we took the loss last week to drop our season record to 9-8 as Georgia ended up letting Texas A&M come back and nearly recover an onside kick to try and tie things up.
I swear, LSU is going to smash those guys.
As for this week, it’s rivalry week.
SEC Pick of the Week: Florida State at No. 11 Florida (-17), 7:30pm ET on SECN.
Out of all the games on the Gators schedule every year this is the one.
This is it.
This game means more than all the rest, especially if both teams are ranked and playing well.
This year the Gators are just fine and probably slightly above where most thought they’d be and Florida State, well, they’re a mess.
And that’s being generous.
The Seminoles are a dumpster fire of a program this year and the Gators should win against the ‘Noles in The Swamp for the first time since Tim Tebow was quarterback.
Upset alert: No. 5 Alabama (-3.5) at 15 Auburn, 3:30pm ET on CBS.
It’s not so much that the Tigers have a chance to win this thing as I think this game will look a lot different because of the quarterback situation at Alabama.
They’ll probably still win big, but compared to some of the other games this week, it wouldn’t surprise me if … well, you know.
Keep an eye on: No. 4 Georgia (-28) at Georgia Tech, 12:00pm ET on ABC.
I’ve learned three things watching the Bulldogs this year.
1. They have an elite no-name defense.
2. They play at BIG 10 style of offense.
3. Said offense is terrible when Lawrence Cager is out.
Cager is out this weekend as he hurt his ankle in practice and with Jake Fromm looking like hot garbage the last couple of weeks this game (and Georgia’s future) looks different than it did a few days ago.
Trending up: LSU.
They’re probably in the playoffs no matter what. Their quarterback is probably going to win the Heisman and their coach is probably going to win some sort of coach of the year award.
Yeah, pretty good year down in Death Valley.
Trending down: Missouri and Mississippi State.
I’ve got a feeling that at least one of these schools, if not both of them will have new head coaches when things are all said and done.
There’s too much smoke at Mississippi State and Missouri, well, Barry Odom hasn’t really done anything since taking over the Tigers.
