Here are this week's matchups involving SEC teams:
Arkansas (4-6, 2-4 SEC) at Mississippi State (7-3, 3-3 SEC)--Mississippi State has given up at lot of points in the last three games and lost each of those. This week in Starkville I think the Bulldogs will end their losing streak and earn their eighth win.
Western Carolina (1-9) at Alabama (9-1)-Alabama will win in a no contest game.
Jacksonville State (6-4) at Florida (9-1)--Florida is struggling on offense, but should not have a big problem winning this week after a scare vs. Louisiana-LaFayette.
Georgia Southern (8-2) at Georgia (9-1)--Georgia Southern will be fired up for the opportunity to play the Bulldogs, but the home team has way too much talent to lose to a lower division team, even a good one.
Ole Miss (5-5, 2-4 SEC) at LSU (8-2, 4-2 SEC)--The way Zach Mettenberger is playing for LSU his team is tougher to beat than it was earlier in the season. The home team should win this SEC West rivalry contest even though it is not a night when LSU seems to play its best football.
Tennessee (4-6, 0-6 SEC) at Vanderbilt (6-4, 4-3 SEC)--The Vols have a more potent offense, but Vanderbilt has the better all-around team and is playing at home so I think the Commodores will win this game in Nashville.
Samford (7-3) at Kentucky (1-9)--I am going to pick Coach Pat Sullivan and his Samford Bulldogs to pull off a victory in Lexington.
Alabama A&M (7-3) at Auburn (2-8)--I think Auburn has some good young talent and this should be an opportunity for players like quarterback Jonathan Wallace to gain experience while helping their teammates be able to enjoy a win on Senior Day.
In other games around the country:
North Carolina State (6-4) at Clemson (9-1)--Clemson should have too much offensive firepower for the Wolfpack.
Cal (3-8) at Oregon State (7-2)--The Bears are really struggling so Oregon State should pick up another victory this week.
Southern Cal (7-3) at UCLA (8-2)--I'm going to pick Southern Cal to win the cross-town rivalry in what should be a competitive game.
Oklahoma (7-2) at West Virginia (5-4)--The Sooners should be able to take advantage of a West Virginia defense that has been giving up way too much yardage and too many points.
Editor's Note: Coach Dye was 52 on his week 11 SEC picks and 12-2 overall. For the season his record is 73-18 on SEC games and 117-32 overall.
