SEC Football Week 3 Previews and Predictions
#1 Alabama vs #6 Texas A&M
The game of the week, if not game of the season as this game is sure to have many fireworks. Alabama comes in here with the number one defense in the nation against A&M's number one rated offense looking for revenge when quarterback Johnny Manziel absolutely embarrassed Bama's defense last year. Texas A&M comes in with a blowout win over Sam Houston State 65-28 and last years Heisman winner Johnny Manzeil with a 405 passing yard game. They look to do something many teams couldn't do once and that's beat Alabama in two straight years, sadly it won't happen. Alabama has been preparing for this game since last year and won't leave without the “W”win.
Alabama gets revenge over Johnny Manziel and A&M in a close game 27-24.
#7 Louisville Vs Kentucky
Kentucky comes into this game after a 43-14 beating of Miami (OH) and also with fire after losing to their instate rivals last year 32-14. Louisville comes in after a 44-7 smack down of Eastern Kentucky looking to keep their BCS hopes going against Kentucky. Teddy Bridgewater and the Cardinals are an easy favorite for this game but like many rivalry games, anything can happen. Kentucky should be able to hit on all cylinders on defense and offense.
Kentucky with a huge upset over Bridgewater and the Cardinals 37-34.
Southern Miss vs Arkansas
Arkansas looks to keep their winning ways alive as they come off a close 22-33 victory over the Samford Bulldogs. Arkansas comes in favorites to beat Southern Miss and they should rightfully so as Southern Miss does not have the firepower on offense or defense to get the upset over the Razorbacks.
Arkansas with the blowout win, over Southern Miss 47-14.
Tennessee vs #2 Oregon
Coming in nobody really is talking about this game but this could easily be an exciting game. Tennessee come in after a great 52-20 defensive performance against Western Kentucky in which they got seven total turnovers, five just in the first. Oregon come in ranked number two in the nation not meeting real competition yet but will this week against the Vols. many favor Oregon but this can easily go either way if Tennessee can slow down Oregon.
In a close entertaining game Oregon is a little to much for the Volunteers of Tennessee and beats them 27-21.
Kent State vs #8 LSU
LSU comes into this game on a high as their QB Zach Mettenberger is playing like he has never played before. Many said he improved over the offseason and they weren't lying. LSU is easily a top three team behind Alabama and Oregon even if ranked 5th as their defense and offense is clicking. Kent State has no chance what so ever to beat LSU in Baton Rouge.
In a noncompetitive game LSU dominates Kent State 66-14
Mississippi State vs Auburn
Both SEC teams go into this game looking to get an early SEC win as Mississppi state looks to go (2-1) while Auburn looks to go (3-0). The Tigers will look for quarterback Nick Marshall to step up big in Auburn's biggest game so far this season. Mississppi can come out victors if they can stop Aubrun's Offense from and establish an early lead. Auburn looks like the favor in this one heading into Tiger country.
Auburn beats their SEC foe Mississippi State (37-21)
Vanderbilt vs #13 South Carolina
South Carolina comes off an upsetting week where they lost to Georgia 30-41 and a continuing occurrence of bad games by Clowney. Vanderbilt comes off a beating of Austin prey 38-3 looking to improve from the blowout. For South Carolina the presence of Clowney is a need for this defense as Vanderbilt has their great WR in Jordan Matthews and many other offensive weapons that can cause fits for South Carolina. Clowney time has arrived the rust has is now back in place he step's up finally helping a team to victory.
South Carolina beats Vanderbilt 37-21
#25 Ole Miss vs Texas
Ole Miss comes into this game (2-0) looking to improve off of their great start which they beat both teams Vanderbilt and SEMO and the offense has scored 70 points of total offense. Texas comes into this game with a crippled defense that gave up 679 offensive yards to a good BYU. Texas with David Ash questionable, a new defensive coordinator for Texas and Ole Miss young offensive core Ole Miss could easily have their time with this team. Oh how Texas has fallen...
