FAYETTEVILLE — Lots of great football action this week in the SEC with games Thursday through Saturday.
Last week, I went 9-1 with my picks and I’m 78-25 for the season. This is the final week of the regular season in the SEC.
This week’s picks with kickoff times and networks for each game. All times are Central.
No. 9 Ole Miss (9-2, 5-2) at Mississippi State (7-4, 4-3). 6:30, ESPN
The Egg Bowl features Lane Kiffin against Mike Leach. Ole Miss has been very good this season and the Bulldogs better than most expected. The Pick: Ole Miss
Missouri (6-5, 3-4) at No. 25 Arkansas (7-4, 3-4), 2:30 p.m., CBS
Lots of interesting twists to this game. Missouri has two players from Fayetteville High School, Hogs have Missouri’s former head coach and some former Tigers on the team. The Pick: Arkansas
No. 1 Georgia (11-0, 8-0) at Georgia Tech (3-8, 2-6), 11 a.m., ABC
These two teams have played some good games, but I don’t see this being close. Georgia is loaded and Tech is struggling. The Pick: Georgia
Florida State (5-6, 4-4) at Florida (5-6, 2-6), 11 a.m., ESPN
Neither team is ranked, Florida already fired its coach and loser won’t qualify for bowl game. Not typical game with these two schools. The Pick: Florida State
No. 3 Alabama (10-1, 6-1) at Auburn (6-5, 3-4), 2:30 p.m., CBS
Alabama is on the road for this game, but they need this win to stay in hunt for playoff spot. If they lose this game they would have to beat Georgia to get into the playoffs. If they win this game they could very well still get in playoffs with close loss to Georgia. The Pick: Alabama and the SEC Refs
Vanderbilt (2-9, 0-7) at Tennessee (6-5, 3-4), 2:45 p.m.,, SEC Network
Tennessee has been in most of its games this season and is a very competitive team. Not the same for Vandy. The Pick: Tennessee
No. 15 Texas A&M (8-3, 4-3) at LSU (5-6, 2-5), 6 p.m., ESPN
This could be an interesting game. This is the final regular season game for Ed Orgeron at LSU. A&M is obviously favored, but I have never been completely sold on them. I don’t think the Arkansas win was a fluke. The Pick: Texas A&M
No. 23 Clemson (8-3, 6-2) at South Carolina (6-5, 3-5), 6:30 p.m., SEC Network
Clemson has struggled some on offense. South Carolina is better than what I thought they would be. The Pick: Clemson
Kentucky (8-3, 5-3) at Louisville (6-5, 4-4) 6:30, ESPN2
Arkansas would probably benefit with a Louisville win here. Kentucky has had a very good season. The Pick: Kentucky
