SEC picks

Seven games are on this weekend's SEC schedule, with the headliner finding Arkansas visiting Alabama in a battle of Western Division unbeatens.

The InsideTennessee staff took some lumps weekend, as the four experts combined to go just 24-12 on their SEC picks.

Chris Price went 7-2, improving his season record to 26-5 and building a two-game lead over Josh Woodward and Danny Parker, each checking in at 24-7. Woodward went 6-3 last weekend, Parker 5-4. Randy Moore also went 6-3 last week and stands 23-8 for the year.

Here are their projections for this week's games, plus their year-to-date records:
