SEC Week 10 Preview and Bowl Projections

We have another big week of SEC action this weekend highlighted by a big SEC West matchup between Auburn and Texas A&M. The Aggies are a 4.5 point favorite at home and both teams still have an outside chance to make it to the SEC Championship.

In the SEC East, Georgia has all but locked up the division and should cruise into the SEC title game and likely face an Alabama team that is starting to click offensively.

Week 10 Top Matchups

Ole Miss vs. Liberty

Ole Miss

Ole Miss faces off against old coach Hugh Freeze in Oxford

One of the most intriguing matchups this weekend is Liberty heading to Ole Miss with former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze returning to Oxford. Freeze helped put the Ole Miss program on the map when he was the head coach from 2012-2016 which were highlighted by 2 upsets over top-ranked Alabama. Liberty has a potential first-round QB in Malik Willis and Hugh Freeze will have plenty of motivation to beat Ole Miss after the way they fired him in 2016.

Auburn vs. Texas A&M

Auburn and Texas A&M got off to a slow start this season but they have started to put things together offensively and head into this matchup with plenty to play for. Auburn only has one SEC loss, and if they can get past the Aggies they will set up a potential winner take all SEC West matchup in the Iron Bowl against Alabama. While Alabama will likely be favored over Auburn, Auburn has found a few in recent years to pull off a few upsets so the SEC and CFP race could get turned on its head should Auburn find a way to win the SEC West.

Mississippi State vs. Arkansas

Mississippi State put together an impressive win last week against Kentucky and will head on the road to Arkansas with hopes of improving their bowl positioning. Mike Leach was feeling some heat earlier in the season after their loss to Memphis but has improved the offense as the season has gone on and the Bulldogs have a chance to finish the season in the top ten if they can finish with wins against Arkansas, Auburn, and Ole Miss.

Georgia vs. Missouri

The Bulldogs head to Missouri as 39 point favorites over a Missouri squad that is still looking to find their identity. This Georgia defense could be one of the best in college football history as they still have not allowed more than 13 points through their first 8 games and has NFL prospects all over the defensive side of the ball.

SEC Bowl Picture

Alabama Football

Despite the loss, Alabama controls their own destiny

Alabama: Cotton Bowl (CFP)

As of now, Alabama is slated to make it into the CFP assuming they can finish the season unblemished and get past a tough Georgia squad. If Alabama loses a close game to Georgia they still have a shot to make it into the playoffs with 2 losses if the Big 10 has a bumpy finish.

Auburn (Sugar Bowl)

Auburn has the best chance to finish up second in the SEC West which would get them into the Sugar Bowl against a likely Big 12 Opponent.

Georgia (Orange Bowl)

As the likely 1 seed, Georgia is likely headed to Miami to face off against the 4 seed in the final CFP standings.

Ole Miss (Citrus Bowl)

Ole Miss has a great shot to finish up 10-2 or 9-3 which land them in a new years day bowl like the Citrus Bowl in Orlando

Texas A&M (Outback Bowl)

The Aggies, Ole Miss, and Auburn will all be in the running for the top secondary bowls and I think the Aggies will finish 4th in the West which will likely land them in Tampa at the Outback Bowl.

Other Bowls Projections:

  • Mississippi State: Liberty Bowl
  • South Carolina: Music City Bowl
  • Kentucky: Gasparilla Bowl
  • Florida: Gator Bowl
