Football Predictions, Week Two
Auburn 25 Mississippi State 18 -- This is the test for Auburn.
Florida 34 Texas A&M 19
Missouri 28 Georgia 26 -- This is the Game of the Week. I think that Missouri will be a team to reckon with this year.
Alabama 38 Western Kentucky 7 -- an easy win
Arkansas 40 Louisiana-Monroe 7 -- an easy win
Kent State 23 Kentucky 7
LSU 39 Washington 20
Ole Miss 35 UTEP 13
South Carolina 28 East Carolina 10 -- I may have overestimated the Gamecocks, or as they're known on the old T-D web site, the Game****s.
Tennessee 35 Georgia State 10
Vanderbilt 24 Northwestern 14
North Alabama 35 Harding 14
Last week: 10 right, 3 wrong, 1 postponed. Auburn and Kentucky did not come across.
Alabama impressively dominated Michigan, which is a good thing. Auburn lost to Clemson. Missouri seems to be emerging as a team to reckon with in the SEC; perhaps the conditions in the SEC summarized breezeily by that Missouri player does seem to make a difference. South Carolina looked feeble, if I might say plainly. Or are the Commodores a possible spoiler team this year.
UNA got by in a squeaker. If they don't improve, they will lose a few this year. I hope this week is better.
In general, most of last week's games were tune-ups. The SEC teams in many cases needed them.
