SEC Picks — Week 10

Have a look at what the InsideTennessee staff had to say about the weekend's schedule of Southeastern Conference football games.

As we head into the final full month of the season InsideTennessee managing editor Danny Parker continues to lead these picks by one game over publisher Scott Hall and by a commanding 12 game lead over VFL Joey Kent. Hall looks to lay claim to the top spot this week while Kent looks to start a major comeback.

Scott Hall (60-16)

Florida vs Arkansas

Florida makes a statement that they are heading to Atlanta yet again. Arkansas is very poor on defense and won't be able to outscore the Gators against that elite defense. Florida, 31-17

Alabama at LSU

Coach O needs this win to hold on the head coaching job long term. That isn't going to happen as Bama is just too much. Alabama, 24-13

Missouri at South Carolina

South Carolina rides the momentum for another win. Missouri is by far the worst team in the SEC and the season can't end soon enough for the Tigers. South Carolina, 31-21 

Georgia at Kentucky

Are Kentucky fans still paying attention to football since we have moved into November? Yes they have and they should. This one is tough to call but I am going with the hot team. Kentucky, 21-17

Georgia Southern at Mississippi

Ole Miss needs a win and they get one. Ole Miss, 41-21

Vanderbilt at Auburn

The Tigers have a good thing going. Auburn, 35-17

Texas A&M at Miss State

The Aggies keep their payoff hopes alive after a surprise early on in Starkville. Texas A&M, 27-21

Tennessee Tech at Tennessee

After a little bit of sluggish start in front of a sluggish crowd turn into a restless crowd the Vols pull away late. Tennessee, 42-10

Joey Kent (49-27)

Florida vs Arkansas

Arkansas, 31-27

Alabama at LSU

LSU, 27-24

Missouri at South Carolina

Missouri, 21-14

Georgia at Kentucky

Georgia, 28-13

Georgia Southern at Mississippi

Ole Miss, 33-12

Vanderbilt at Auburn

Auburn, 27-17

Texas A&M at Miss State

Texas A&M, 41-17

Tennessee Tech at Tennessee

Tennessee, 35-14


Danny Parker (61-15)

Florida vs Arkansas

Bret Bielema pulls a rabbit out of his hat from time to time. Even as losers of 2 of 3, the Razorbacks are tough to beat in Fayetteville. His Hogs have a porous defense, but they do have experience facing plenty of talented attacks. Arkansas, 30-27.

Alabama at LSU

One of the matchups the entire country looks forward to each year. Always a load of talent on both squads. Mostly interested to see if the Bayou Bengals can get Leonard Fournette going. If they can do that and slow down the Tide running game, they'll win. Jalen Hurts isn't a prolific passer. Not so sure it happens though as 'Bama does have what's easily the premier run defense in the nation — and stout run Ds don't go in slumps. Alabama, 19-7.

Missouri at South Carolina

Jake Bentley running the show has new life breathed into Gamecock Country. Got to think they take down the league's worst team in the Chicken Coop. South Carolina, 21-10.

Georgia at Kentucky

The Bulldogs aren't going to win their program's third national championship this year, and they're a hard bunch to figure out as losers of 4 of 5. Drop this one and Georgia likely has to win its last two over Lafayette and Georgia Tech to get bowl eligible. Is it sacrilege to pick Georgia to lose to Kentucky? If either Nick Chubb or Sony Michel is alive and well, Jim Chaney needs to order Jacob Eason to put the ball in their hands until the final whistle blows. Don't get cute. The Wildcats have the 89th run defense in the land. Take advantage. Georgia, 38-27.

Georgia Southern at Mississippi

Easiest game of the week to predict. Have to think that Hugh Freeze's team is cash-money at home for this non-con matchup. Mississippi, 42-20.

Vanderbilt at Auburn

Hard to stop that train now that it's on the tracks on The Plains. Have to think the Tigers ground attack keeps on keepin' on. Auburn, 30-13.

Texas A&M at Mississippi State

A voice in the back of my head says the Bulldogs pull off the upset. It's not quite strong enough to operate the keys on my computer, however. Texas A&M, 57-17.

Tennessee Tech at Tennessee

Raise your hand if you're expecting a blowout. An SEC team at home versus an OVC team with a losing record should always equal a thrashing. Also have to think Derek Barnett gets another sack and John Kelly eclipses the 100-yard mark. Tennessee, 45-10.
