Your Mississippi St. Bulldogs come in at #14 this week after slaughtering the Louisiana Ragin Cajuns, 56-10. The Dawgs are on the road this weekend headed to Lexington, Kentucky to take on the Kentucky Wildcats. This will be the Bulldogs’ first SEC matchup of the year. I’m taking our Dawgs to take care of business in the second half, 38-17.
Alabama Crimson Tide. #1. What do ya know? Anyone surprised? This past week, the Tide... uhhh... hmmm... DESTROYED the Ole Miss Rebels by a score of 62-7. So... that was fun. After the Rebels scored on their first play from scrimmage, the Crimson Tide scored 62 unanswered points. WOW. This Alabama team is the real deal this year (as if they’re not every year). The Alabama Crimson Tide host the Texas A&M Aggies this Saturday afternoon at 2:30 pm CT. Should be interesting to watch, but I’ve got the Tide pulling away in the 4th, 42-21.
The NOW #2 Georgia Bulldogs jumped Clemson and fell at #2 this week in the AP poll, after pounding the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders. This week the Bulldogs go on the road to Missouri. I think the Missouri Tigers could hang around early in this game solely because of how well Drew Lock is playing right now. BUT... the Georgia Bulldogs are actually the #2 team in the country and they handle business in Columbia on Saturday, 35-14.
Look at this team... The LSU Tigers come in at #6 this week after a game-winning field goal in Jordan-Hare Stadium. What. A. Game. Those games are the reason I love sitting in front of a TV all dang Saturday. The LSU Tigers host LA Tech this week at home and I’m taking the Tigers, 45-10.
Auburn bumps down two spots at #9 this week. They will host the Arkansas Razorbacks this Saturday night and will bounce back. Actually... they will dominate the Razorbacks. It will not even be close. Auburn wins big, 37-7.
Lastly, we have the Texas A&M Aggies breaking the top 25 coming in at #22. This past weekend they handled the ULM Warhawks, 48-10. I believe the reason they broke top 25 is more because of the fact that they gave the Clemson Tigers everything they wanted the weekend before, rather than the fact they beat ULM the way they did. As you know, they go to Tuscaloosa this weekend and that should be fun.
Here’s a look around the rest of the AP Top 25:
