IT picks the SEC

Seven games are on this week's SEC slate, and most shape up to be fairly competitive. The marquee matchup finds unbeaten Auburn hosting Georgia.

South Carolina can clinch the SEC East by beating Florida in Gainesville and Mississippi State can enhance its budding reputation if it could upset Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Ole Miss at Tennessee and Vanderbilt at Kentucky offer some intrigue, as well.

Dave Hooker (63-12) continues to lead the InsideTennessee picks panel. Chris Price is second at 61-14.

Here are the Week 10 picks, plus the year-to-date records:

Randy Moore (59-16)

MISS. STATE AT ALABAMA: I'd pick the Bulldogs if Alabama weren't coming off a tough loss at LSU ... but it is. Tide, 20-17

UTEP AT ARKANSAS: Even if the Hogs are looking ahead to next weekend's game at Mississippi State this one should be easy. Arkansas, 49-14

GEORGIA AT AUBURN: Can the Dawgs' new 3-4 defense stop Cam Newton? Maybe, but not for four quarters. Auburn, 27-20

S. CAROLINA AT FLORIDA: I just don't think Steve Spurrier's best team can beat Urban Meyer's worst team. Gators, 31-24

VANDERBILT AT KENTUCKY: If the game were in Nashville, I might see the Dores in an upset. Not in Lexington, though. Cats, 34-17

LA-MONROE AT LSU: The Tigers will be flat after upsetting Bama but it won't matter a whole lot. LSU, 34-7

OLE MISS AT TENNESSEE: If the Vols are going to win any SEC games this season, they'd better start soon. Tennessee, 24-20

James Bryant (51-24)

MISS. STATE AT ALABAMA: Alabama, 24-14

UTEP AT ARKANSAS: Arkansas in a blowout, 56-21

GEORGIA AT AUBURN: With or without the Cam factor is the main question, Georgia in the upset, 34-31

S. CAROLINA AT FLORIDA: Florida will win this one at home 31-28
