Scott Feinstein picks the SEC

Week 7 is a light week with only 4 games, all SEC vs SEC matchups. Here is what I think will happen.

Last Week: (4-1) vs. spread: (2-3) Yearly: (32-12) vs. spread: (19-20)

Ole Miss @ Alabama (-13): Alabama completely shut down Florida last week. One would think if they could do that to Florida, they surely can do it to Ole Miss. I am one who agrees with that way of thinking. Alabama is rolling and has enough offense to go with a strong defense. Ole Miss struggled with The Citadel last week. Ole Miss has beaten Bama the last two meetings in Oxford. This is not Eli Manning vs. probation hit Bama however. Bama may overlook Ole Miss for a while (looking forward to UT), but will snap out of it in time to roll Ole Miss. Alabama 24 Ole Miss 10

Auburn @ Arkansas (+8): I am still not sold on Auburn, but I wasn't sold on Bama either. As we all know Bama smoked Florida and now I am a believer. Auburn can make me a believer this week if they can handle Arkansas, like they should. Arkansas finally has a little momentum with their easy win last week over UL-Monroe. Auburn has played a very easy schedule thus far in 2005. I'm going to go with the not so popular pick and pick Arkansas to pull off the upset. If Auburn handles the Hogs, I will admit I am wrong and move on. I think it will be a good game regardless of who wins. Arkansas 27 Auburn 24

Florida @ LSU (-6): The visiting team has won the last 4 matchups in this series. These two teams also appear to be going in different directions after last weeks results. LSU must reduce the amount of turnovers and errors if they want to win this game. I think LSU will indeed do just that. Florida still doesn't seem to grasp Urban Meyer's offense, as is evident by the 3 point outing last week. Alabama's defense had a lot to do with that, but it was still ineffective. I think Florida is questioning themselves after last weeks game and LSU will take full advantage of that with their attacking, aggressive defense. LSU 30 Florida 17

Georgia (-16) @ Vanderbilt: Georgia has won ten straight games in this matchup. All the wins were by 10+ points as well. While this years Vanderbilt team may be better, the Georgia team is just as good as the teams that laid the wood to Vanderbilt in the past. I am sure Georgia will watch the film of the LSU game and try to duplicate the attack the LSU defense buried Jay Cutler with. Vanderbilt usually seems slow to adjust. They have had a whole week to adjust, so let's hope they can change it up and pull the upset. I hope I am wrong, but the Georgia defense will be too tough to overcome and the 25,000 that Georgia will probably put in the stands will make it even tougher for Vandy to win. Georgia 34 Vanderbilt 13
