  Week Six SEC Predictions

Last week's predictions were 7-1, and overall they are 42-10. After five straight home games to start the season, Auburn travels to Starkville to face Mississippi State. The contest starts at 11:00 a.m. CT and can be seen on ESPN. The Tigers lead to all-time series with the Bulldogs 61-24-2, but MSU won last year's meeting in Auburn 17-9.

Auburn at Mississippi State

MSU enters the game at 2-2 overall and 1-1 in conference play. The Bulldogs beat South Carolina 27-14 Sept. 10, then a week later lost 23-20 at LSU.

The Bulldogs should be rested and pretty healthy after having last Saturday off. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald has thrown for 603 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. Fitzgerald leads the team in rushing with 329 yards on 47 carries. Receiver Fred Ross has 25 catches for 288 yards and four touchdowns.

So far this season, MSU's offense averages 214.3 passing ypg, 219.5 rushing ypg and 28.5 ppg. On defense, the Bulldogs allow 23.3 ppg.

Auburn improved to 3-2 after a lopsided 58-7 victory over Louisiana-Monroe. After struggling in the red zone a week before against LSU, the Tigers scored touchdowns on four out of the five trips inside the 20, and the only trip they didn't score on came from the backups with less than a minute remaining.

Against the Warhawks, Auburn racked up 688 yards of offense, which was the fourth-highest total in program history.

Quarterback Sean White completed 14 of 17 passes for 239 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Kerryon Johnson had 146 rushing yards and Tony Stevens had 109 yards on four catches.

After five games, the Tigers average 218.8 passing ypg, 269.8 rushing ypg, and 31.2 ppg.

Defensively, Auburn allowed the Warhawks just 251 total yards, which was the lowest output by an Auburn opponent this season. The unit recorded two takeaways along with two sacks and seven quarterback hurries. The stingy defense gives up just 16.4 ppg.

Prediction: Mississippi State 17-13.

LSU at Florida

Prediction: Florida 24-17.

Tennessee at Texas A&M

Prediction: Texas A&M 31-17.

Vanderbilt at Kentucky

Prediction: Kentucky 27-7.

Alabama at Arkansas

Prediction: Alabama 30-17.

Georgia at South Carolina

Prediction: Georgia 34-7.
