College Wire’s Week 6 SEC game predictions

A massive week in the world of SEC football goes down on Saturday. The future members renew their annual showdown in Dallas, Texas, with the Red River Rivalry. We also have the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry when the Auburn Tigers travel to Athens to take on the No. 2 Georgia Bulldogs.

Of course who can forget the nightcap, Jimbo Fisher going for two straight against his former mentor, Nick Saban? They stole the headlines this past offseason with their spat. Fisher even had a press conference to address it. Once that all went down, everyone in the South and across the nation circled Oct. 8 on their calendars.

One game that has been under the radar kicks off at 11:00 AM CT with the Tennessee Vols heading to Baton Rouge to tangle with the Tigers. LSU is 4-1 and Tennessee sits at 4-0. This win could boost either team and give the SEC a good indication of how good both teams are.

Last year’s matchup between Missouri and Florida was just another nail in the Dan Mullen coffin. The Tigers prevailing win helped propel the downward spiral that ended with Mullen being ousted just one year after a New Years Six appearance. With Billy Napier now in command, do the Gators return the favor to Eli Drinkwitz?

As we do each week, the SEC editors on the College Wire network make their predictions for each conference game on the schedule.
