WRAS Picks the SEC - Week 13

SPUAT (-11.5) @ AUBURN

Walt Flanagan: Inside sources say there will be a little trickery and maybe even the unveiling of the "Big Cat Formation" (Ben Tate at wildcat with Fannin and McCalebb). SPUAT's strength (other than paying players) is their running game while Auburn's weakness is their linebacking depth. That's the difference but Auburn will keep it close...SPUAT 28 - Auburn 21

Morris Fenderbaum: SPUAT 33 - Auburn 20

Mickey Goldmill: Rivalry week. Iron Bowl. Tigers vs. Turds. Nuff said. Quite possibly Mickey’s favorite week of the year. The importance of this game cannot be overstated. What it means to the respective programs, is immeasurable. The implications, far reaching. SPUAT has proved, on the field, they are one of the best teams in the land. They have looked dominate the majority of the season. They are good on offense, good on defense, and good on special teams. Their rushing attack is brutal and Ingram is making a serious push towards winning The Heisman Trophy. It will take a near perfect game from the Tigers to give them a legitimate shot to win. Fannin fumbling can not happen. Ziemba and McCain’s false starts can not happen. Thorpe getting toasted down the sideline can not happen. Fumbled punts can not happen. These are the things that have plagued Auburn in its four losses. If Auburn is able to play a mistake free game, and get just a few breaks, we can compete. Its strength on weakness in SPUAT’s running game vs. AU’s run defense. In Mickey’s opinion, it is vital that Eltoro Freeman is healthy and starts. Auburn’s depth, or lack thereof, at linebacker has been an Achilles heel all season. “The Bull” is our best option to stop Ingram. His potential absence is a very, very bad thing. In the end the Turds have a better, deeper, more experience team, and will likely wear the Tigers down. A sad day on the plains, SPUAT 35 – AU 16

Clemson (-3) @ South Carolina

Walt Flanagan: Trap game for Clemson? This is the kind of game that Clemson loses and now that they are already in the ACCCG, can they get it together for this? I think so...Clemson 24 - South Carolina 20

Morris Fenderbaum: Clemson 28 - South Carolina 17

Mickey Goldmill: Will this be it for Spurrier at Carolina? The rumors have been out there. Clemson is hot having won there last six games to put the Tigers at 8-3 on the year and champions of the Atlantic Division. The Cocks are headed in the opposite direction, currently on a three game skid and at 6-5 on the year. This one’s in Columbia, but Big Mo is on the side of Clemson. Has S.O.S. had enough? CU 31 – SC 24

Tennessee (-3.5) @ Kentucky

Walt Flangan: 24 years of futility for the Wildcats versus the Vols. This is as good a shot as they will ever have but they won't have enough in a close one...Tennessee 31 - Kentucky 30

Morris Fenderbaum: Kentucky 24 - Tennessee 17

Mickey Goldmill: This one could prove tricky. The Cats are going for win number eight on the year and UT is trying to get number seven. Too many off the field incidences have provided a number of distractions for the Vols as of late. Mickey likes UK in the upset, 28-27.

Ole Miss (-7) @ Mississippi State

Walt Flangan: Ole Miss is running wild now that they have McCluster as the featured back. MSU was keeping it close with teams early on but they seem to have lost steam...Ole Miss 35 - MSU 21

Morris Fenderbaum: Ole Miss 37 - Mississippi State 20

Mickey Goldmill: Mickey can only guess the line is only a touchdown since this version of The Egg Bowl will be played in Starkghanistan. With wins over Jackson St., Vandy, MTSU, and Kentucky, Dan Mullen is still searching for his signature win in his rookie year at the helm. Don’t expect it to happen against the more talented Rebels. UM 42 – MSU 31

FSU (+23) @ Florida

Walt Flanagan: Let the Tim Tebow lovefest begin. It is going to be nauseating listening to Verne slobber all over the Football Jesus. He'll put on a show for the home crowd and get his name back in the Heisman race...Florida 45 - FSU 10

Morris Fenderbaum: Florida 41 - FSU 17

Mickey Goldmill: Bowden gets embarrassed in this one. It’s a shame, as this will be the last game for Mickey Andrews at FSU (except for maybe a bowl game). Apparently, Andrews got the memo. 42 – 10 Gaytors.

Georgia (+7.5) @ Georgia Tech

Walt Flanagan: This one should be a shootout as UGa can't really stop anyone and GT can score on anyone. Close but the Jackets pull it out...Georgia Tech 31 - Georgia 24

Morris Fenderbaum: Georgia Tech 34 - Georgia 24

Mickey Goldmill: The ACC Coastal Division Champion Jackets are playing for braggin rights. They get UGAy coming off a loss to Kentucky at home inside Bobby Dodd. Will they get caught looking ahead to the showdown with Clemson? Not likely. This one means too much. It’s a good thing UGAy beat Auburn because Mickey’s not sure he would have survived three losses and a losing record. GT 31 – UGAy 24 This one doesn’t have anything to do with football, but Mickey can’t get enough of the GTGs.

Arkansas (+3.5) @ LSU

Walt Flanagan: Les Miles has been hearing it from the Corn Dog Nation this week. I love Arkansas when they are at home, this game is Baton Rouge...LSU 27 - Arkansas 21

Morris Fenderbaum: Arkansas 36 - LSU 28

Mickey Goldmill: Words cannot describe the emptiness of Les Miles giant melon. Les Miles is a ritard. For that reason, Mickey likes the Hogs. rKansas 33 – Lswho 28

Walt (5-1 straight up, 3-2 versus the spread)

Morris (4-2, 3-2)
