SEC Bowl Game Predictions
« on: December 09, 2018, 07:13:35 AM »
http://www.secsports.com/article/25395780/2018-19-sec-bowl-schedule

Baylor -v- Vandy:  Two teams delighted to make a bowl game of course.  Vandy is sneaky tough I think and wins a low scoring affair, 20-10.

Purdue -v- Auburn:  I've lost faith in Auburn, I think the team has basically hung it up, and Purdue can strike quickly, as OSU learned, 34-17.

Florida -v- Michigan:  Defense teams, slugfest, Michigan looks better to me, wins 23-13.

South Carolina -v- Virginia:  South Carolina has too much of everything I think and wins 31-17.

Missouri - Oklahoma State:  Might be some points scored in this one, Mizzou prevails with decent defense and solid running game, 41-31.

Miss State -v- Iowa:  Another defensive type game, Iowa pulls one out late 20-19.

Kentucky -v- Penn State:  Both teams are a bit disappointed putting it mildly to be here, Penn State has been there before and pulls one out in an ugly game 27-23.

LSU -v- UCF:  LSU is run dizzy by UCF's offense and UCF wins impressively for another MNC, 41-27.

UGA -v- Texas:  Close game with both sides swapping leads, but a late field goal saves the Dawgs 31-28.

Bama -v- Oklahoma:  Heavily favored Bama is unhappy about the Heisman and loads up to stop the Sooners 41-24.

Bama -v- Clemson:  Tough match up of top two teams all season, but Clemson hasn't faced a team like Bama and gets blown out in a sleeper, 42-13.

I think Vandy something like 42-30. Baylor doesn't play defense.

Purdue -v- Auburn:  I've lost faith in Auburn, I think the team has basically hung it up, and Purdue can strike quickly, as OSU learned, 34-17.

Reverse the scores. Auburn has too much defense and Stidham will light up Purdue's defense,

Florida -v- Michigan:  Defense teams, slugfest, Michigan looks better to me, wins 23-13.

Michigan 42 Florida 17. Don't be fooled by Michigan's loss to Ohio.


South Carolina -v- Virginia:  South Carolina has too much of everything I think and wins 31-17.

Yes

Missouri - Oklahoma State:  Might be some points scored in this one, Mizzou prevails with decent defense and solid running game, 41-31.

Yes


Miss State -v- Iowa:  Another defensive type game, Iowa pulls one out late 20-19.

Big disagreement here. Mississippi State imo is 3rd best team in SEC. State 28 Iowa 14.


Kentucky -v- Penn State:  Both teams are a bit disappointed putting it mildly to be here, Penn State has been there before and pulls one out in an ugly game 27-2

Penn State 49  Kentucky 14. Bad mismatch.


LSU -v- UCF:  LSU is run dizzy by UCF's offense and UCF wins impressively for another MNC, 41-27.

UCF will miss their stating qb. LSU 31  UCF 10

UGA -v- Texas:  Close game with both sides swapping leads, but a late field goal saves the Dawgs 31-28.

Georgia 45   Texas  21  Texas doesn't have five players who would start for Georgia

Bama -v- Oklahoma:  Heavily favored Bama is unhappy about the Heisman and loads up to stop the Sooners 41-24.

I will give two scores; one with Tua and one without.
With Tua  Alabama 54 Oklahoma 28
Without Tua Alabama 35 Oklahoma 34


Bama -v- Clemson:  Tough match up of top two teams all season, but Clemson hasn't faced a team like Bama and gets blown out in a sleeper, 42-13.


Alabama 35  Clemson 28

There is actually one more SEC Bowl game. Texas A&M plays NC State in the Taxslayer Bowl.

A&M 42 NC State 24

This is a crappy bowl for a very good A&M team.

That's not a crappy bowl or opponent.  It's a crappy name for a bowl, but just call it the Gator Bowl.



I don't know who's going to win what games, but I'm pretty sure Florida is going to lose and look bad doing it.

I still don't think of A&M as an SEC team.  It would be like calling, say, Missouri an SEC team.

I guess that explains why you left A&M off the list.
And good thing the SEC office didn't ask your opinion before extending us an invite.   ;)

It's also one of the more interesting games, to me, so I'll bite, if you're telling me A&M is somehow now in the SEC:

A&M  37  NCSU 20

I'm glad you guys think so much of us not only as an SEC team but as a bowl team but unfortunately our bowl record over the last ~30 years has been somewhat atrocious.  I hope Jimbo can turn the tide on that one but I won't hold my breath.

Got a bad feeling about tonight. Our passing D ranks in the 100s. Our offense better wake up.

Well, my picks were mostly really bad.  Good for A&M.  I may let them into the conference now, but not Missouri.

So happy I’m wrong. In my time We’ve lost like 80% of our bowl games. Extremely happy to get a win, put an exclamation point on a good season, move up in the rankings, and springboard into next season.
