Week 9 in the SEC


THE SEC WEEKLY RECAP

 

With only a few more weeks left into the regular season of the 2010 FBS season; the match-ups get a little bit more intense and the wins matter more, Auburn has their eyes on the prize and looks like nothing will stop them.  Cam Newton probably wrapped up the Heisman Trophy barring any type of fall back the next couple of weeks; but really who is going to contain him? Green, Jones and Jeffery looking like the best WR’s in the conference with solid performances week in and week out.  With Auburn currently ranked 1st on the BCS standings; question is can they maintain that rank to play in the BCS Title game? The only game I’m afraid of it if they fall into a trap game, they still have to face Alabama and that can be a huge game. 

With that being said lets check out the action last week in the SEC as they’re some close games and a blowout or two.

Lets take a look at the upcoming games this weekend in the SEC.

TENNESSEE @ (17) SOUTH CAROLINA

               I don’t expect this one to be close as I see QB Stephen Garcia continuing to have a stellar season putting up very impressive numbers.  The Volunteers will remain winless in the SEC and Lattimore and Jeffery will put up numbers in this one. 

SOUTH CAROLINA – 34 v. Tennessee – 13

GEORGIA @ FLORIDA

               Can’t believe the Gators aren’t in the top 25, but I seen it coming when Tebow left.  The question in this one is can the Gators defense stop Murray, Ealey and Green? The answer to that will be no, and the Bulldogs will go into Gatorville and give them their 4th straight loss and will have Meyers sweating, but I don’t think his job should be on the hot seat, hard to replace Tebow in College football.  Florida will give it their best as they’re at home but the Bulldogs will prove too much firepower on offense.

GEORGIA – 41 @ FLORIDA – 24

(3) AUBURN @ MISSISSPPI

               Can you say trap game? No I don’t think so, Cam Newton and company will handle their business as nobody has been able to contain Cam yet; so why would the Rebels? Auburn will keep rolling in this one as the past couple weeks has been close games; this one will turn into a blowout, early! Maybe Cam can throw for 200 and run for 200, or is that a given? The BCS title game is in their view; they know it. 

AUBURN – 47 @ OLE MISS – 17

KENTUCKY @ (23) MISSISSIPPI STATE

               Mississippi State keeps on rolling, after their victory over Florida a couple weeks ago they got into the top 25 and moved up one spot in each of the past 2 weeks.  With the Wildcats putting up points the last few weeks and not winning; there due for a win and I think they’ll get it here.

KENTUCKY – 37 @ MISSISSIPPI STATE – 28

VANDY @ (19) ARKANSAS

               The Razorbacks are going to be no contest for Vandy, Ryan Mallett should have a tremendous day and have no problem connecting with Childs. 

ARKANSAS – 43 v. VANDY – 10
