On Saturday’s early 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.

Every week, I call him before Saturday and we discuss who will this Saturday inside the SEC. We will discuss betting lines, close games, and winners each week.

After the first six weeks of the football season, the SON (myself) is up 3-1.

SEC Football Week 7:

Auburn @ Arkansas (-3.5)

Pops: After that defensive let down, I’ll take Auburn to cover.

Son: I like the Hogs at home.

Florida (-10.5) @ LSU

Pops: This one is really tough for me because I keep expecting LSU to show up one week because of their talent. LSU covers today.

Son: I’ll also take LSU to cover today.

Texas A&M (-9) @ Missouri

Pops: A&M covers.

Son: I don’t care that this game is at Mizzou. A&M wins big.

Kentucky @ Georgia (-23)

Pops: Give me UK to cover the -23.

Son: 23 points is just too much for two good SEC defenses. I’ll take UK to cover.

Vanderbilt @ South Carolina (-18.5)

Pops: I’ll take Vandy to cover the points this week. I don’t have a lot of faith in South Carolina.

Son: Vanderbilt is so bad... I can’t take them to cover. Give me SC.

Alabama (-17) @ Mississippi State

Pops: I hate picking against State. So, I’ll take STATE to cover.

Son: I’m gonna take the DAWGS to UPSET BAMA. Dawgs win in a close one.

Ole Miss (-3) @ Tennessee

Pops: I’m taking UT to win this one straight up.

Son: Rocky Top, you’ll always be! Home sweet home to me! Good ol’ Rocky Top! Rocky Top, Tennessee! Rocky Top, Tennessee!
