Alabama along with Arkansas will meet Arkansas and Alabama will play each other, while Kentucky along with Ole Miss will do the same. They will be playing the two top matches in the conference this week. South Carolina and Florida have changed their teams because of the storm Ian.

Members of the staff from The All AggiesMizzou Sports Talk and The Grove Report provide their predictions for the remainder of this week’s SEC game this week.

South Carolina State (1-2) at South Carolina (2-2, 0-2) 6, p.m. on Thursday CT, SEC Network

Collier Logan, Staff Writer: This game has been moved to Thursday evening because of the hurricane Ian. South Carolina State upsets big brother on the road. SC State 28, South Carolina 24

Matthew Postins, Staff Writer:They moved this game ahead by two days due to the hurricane Ian. SC State is probably going to be disappointed if the game were cancelled completely. South Carolina 46, SC State 10

Cole Thompson, Staff Writer: Our thoughts go out to all those who are affected by the effects from Hurricane Ian. South Carolina quarterback Spencer Rattler tosses three touchdowns on the way to victory. South Carolina 42, SC State 17

Connor Zimmerlee, Staff Writer:There isn’t a whole much for me to write about this game. There’s nothing to suggest that it could be a close contest. If it is, the coaching seats will be comfortable and comfortable in South Carolina. South Carolina 49, SC State 7

No. 7 Kentucky (4-0, 1-0) at No. 14 Ole Miss (4-0), 11 a.m. CT, ESPN

Collier Logan, Staff Writer: Kentucky’s having a excellent year, and it’s not luck. Wildcats quarterback Will Levis has thrown for close to 1200 yards and 10 touchdowns during the season. He’s also intercepted four times however, and the Rebels are expected to capitalise on his mistakes here. Ole Miss 24, Kentucky 17.

Matthew Postins, Staff Writer:This has the potential to be a very great game, considering that both teams are in the top 10 in the top ten and Ole Miss has settled on the quarterback they will use for their starting position. There hasn’t been a player as confident in Kentucky from the Tim Couch days. Like back then there’s a lot to be said about the quarterback. Should the Ole Miss defense can disrupt Levis then the Rebels will prevail. In the event that Ole Miss can’t, well that’s it. Kentucky 31, Ole Miss 28

Cole Thompson, Staff Writer: One of the best matchups this week as the Wildcats travel to Oxford for a chance to establish the world their SEC East status. The Rebels have found their groove with the direction of quarterback Jaxson Dart, however it’s the freshman running back Quinshon Jackson who’s been stealthy in the spotlight. What’s the x-factor in this match? Chris Rodriguez’s return to Kentucky famous the running back Chris Rodriguez. Cats are busy at Vaught-Hemingway. Kentucky 34, Ole Miss 24

Connor Zimmerlee, Staff Writer: Top 10 Kentucky. It doesn’t have to be basketball season. Kentucky is legitimate this year and they proved it with the win that was a must-win in the series against Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss. Kentucky 42, Ole Miss 35

No. 2 Alabama (4-0, 1-0) at No. 20 Arkansas (3-1, 1-1), 2:30 p.m. CT, CBS

Collier Logan, Staff Writer: Arkansas lost to Texas A&M by the width of a goalpost the other week. They’ll need to bounce back and beat ‘Bama home. Arkansas 33, Alabama 28

Matthew Postins, Staff Writer:So how much has Alabama made progress since it nearly lost to Texas? We’re going to discover. The Razorbacks are able to give the Crimson Tide a loss. But I’m not sure if I am convinced until I witness it and I’m just not sure I can. Alabama 29, Arkansas 26.

Cole Thompson, Staff Writer: Every year, Alabama or loses an opponent or plays the game far too close. Did Texas the game in which the Tide played to close? Personally, I believe Alabama is a bit beaten this year however, it appears that the Hogs defense is vulnerable to too many costly play in their secondary. Alabama is able to win the game late due an 89-yard touchdown from the running forward Jase McClellan. Alabama 38, Arkansas 30

Connor Zimmerlee, Staff Writer:Arkansas will look to recover from an upset losing loss against Texas A&M, but unfortunately the Razorbacks are beaten by Alabama. The game is expected to be competitive however Alabama is now the record of 2-0 on the year in SEC play. Alabama 38, Arkansas 35

Mississippi State (3-1, 0-1) at No. 17 Texas A&M (3-1, 1-0), 3 p.m. CT, SEC Network

Collier Logan, Staff Writer: Texas A&M’s wake-up phone call coming from Appalachian State has done wonders for the Aggies team. They’ve beat two teams in the Top-15 in a row, and they appear to be the team that we all thought this talent could be. Unfortunately Wide receiver Ainias Smith is out for the rest of the season and that’s a huge blow. They’ll have enough momentum and strength to win this game, though. Texas A&M 27, Mississippi State 10

Matthew Postins, Staff Writer:The loss of Smith affects the Aggies without doubt. It was clear that the passing game is beginning to get going when the quarterback Max Johnson has settled in. The Aggies are going to need one or two receivers to take over and help Johnson out. The Aggie defense is one of the best, and I believe that’s the reason I think it will propel the Aggies to victory Saturday. Texas A&M 28, Mississippi State 17.

Cole Thompson, Staff Writer: Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers currently leads the SEC in passing yards, and has thrown for more than 300 yards 3 times in the year. The Aggies defense is currently limiting the opposition only 153.3 pass yards, and 11.8 score per contest. If A&M can limit Rogers to a mere 250 yards of passing and win, they have a shot. The Aggies’ running back, Devon Achane score after a run of 50+ yards late in the game to take a lead and eventually victory. Texas A&M 31, Mississippi State 27

Connor Zimmerlee, Staff Writer:The key for Texas A&M in this match is to stop Mississippi State’s air-raid offense that the Aggies were unable to do last season. This season is a completely new story altogether, because Texas A&M stifles Mississippi State to improve to two wins on the SEC. Texas A&M 35, Mississippi State 20

LSU (3-1, 1-0) at Auburn (3-1, 1-0), 6 p.m. CT, ESPN

Collier Logan, Staff Writer: LSU will take advantage of an underperforming Auburn team which probably should be beaten by Missouri the week before. LSU 33, Auburn 20

Matthew Postins, Staff Writer: Look Auburn barely beat Mizzou. It’s hard to imagine an additional week of Auburn Tigers beating another team called Tigers. LSU 34, Auburn 17

Cole Thompson, Staff Writer: One of these two teams is likely to finish in the bottom third of the SEC West. A team with a steady quarterback who has had more than one game on their offensive line. The other team is Auburn. LSU 31, Auburn 21

Connor Zimmerlee, Staff Writer:It’s another battle of the Tigers for Auburn who just got out of Missouri by the thinnest of margins last week. The Tigers won’t have the same luck this time around it appears that LSU wins. LSU 38, Auburn 17

Eastern Washington (1-2) at Florida (2-2, 0-2), 11 a.m. CT Sunday, ESPN+

Collier Logan, Staff Writer: Florida needs an easy task however, they cannot get caught up in this situation. But, they need to return to the winning column. Florida 35, Eastern Washington 17

Matthew Postins, Staff Writer:If you don’t know, EWU is a traditional FCS player, which means the Eagles could cause the Gators some problems. However, not at the level of Appalachian State. This game was been moved to Sunday because of the hurricane Ian. Florida 48, Eastern Washington 17

Cole Thompson, Staff Writer: Out thoughts go out to all those who are dealing suffering the effects of Hurricane Ian. Gators get one win in the State. Florida 34, Eastern Washington 3

Connor Zimmerlee, Staff Writer: Florida. By a lot. They’re trying to remove the flavor from Tennessee off their tongues. They will do it this week. Florida 56, Eastern Washington 3
