On Saturday’s newest segment, managing editor, Landon Young, does this week’s Southeastern Conference pick ‘em challenge with his father, Gerald Young.
My father is the reason I am so crazy about Mississippi State sports. He brought me home from the hospital when I was born in a No. 1 Mississippi State jersey. Growing up, we woke up early every Saturday and watched ESPN College GameDay together while drinking some fresh coffee. My father taught me just how important this week is. Egg Bowl week. This week’s cover picture was taken in Jackson, Mississippi, featuring the 2019 Egg Bowl trophy. Every week, I call him before Saturday and we discuss who will win this Saturday inside the SEC. We will discuss betting lines, close games, and winners each week.
Let’s PICK ‘EM:
SEC Week 10
Kentucky at Florida (-23.5)
Pops: I think Kentucky covers. Last time I picked the Wildcats to cover, they did not.
Son: I’ll take Kentucky to cover as well. I don’t see Florida destroying Kentucky like that.
Vanderbilt at Missouri (-15)
Pops: Mizzou covers. Hard for me to pick Vandy, but I hope the female soccer player kicks well!
Son: I’ll take Vanderbilt to hang in there and cover the -15.
Auburn at Alabama (-24.5)
Pops: I’ll take ‘Bama. This one was the most difficult for me. Choosing the Tide because of how well they’re playing at the moment.
Son: It’s the Iron Bowl. Everyone knows Auburn will come to compete. I’ll take the Tigers to cover in this one.
Pops: I’ll take LSU to cover. I’m not sure the Tigers win, but I think Coach O gets ‘em ready to play this week.
Son: I’m taking LSU to cover as well. Texas A&M is good, but I think LSU will surprise some people in this game.
Georgia (-21.5) at South Carolina
Pops: South Carolina covers. The Gamecocks didn’t have a great performance versus Ole Miss or Missouri, but I think they play well enough this week.
Son: Nope. Georgia covers the -21.5. I don’t see South Carolina bouncing back after the firing of Will Muschamp.
Mississippi State at Ole Miss (-9.5)
Pops: We need to get to Corral EARLY and OFTEN. Get him shook up. That’s probably our game plan... So, I’m taking the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Son: Pops asked me who I was picking in this one... Y’all already know who I’m picking. Pops is right, we have to win in the trenches this game. GIVE ME THE DAWGS!
