  Week Ten SEC Predictions

Last week's predictions were 4-2, and overall they are 61-15. This week, after winning five straight, Auburn returns home to battle Vanderbilt. The contest can be seen on ESPN at 11 a.m. CT.

Vanderbilt at Auburn

In the series, Vanderbilt leads 21-20-1, with the Commodores winning 17-13 in 2012.

Vanderbilt is 4-4 overall and 1-3 in conference play. The Commodores had last weekend off. Vanderbilt's only conference win came at Georgia Oct.15 when it upset the Bulldogs 17-16.

The Commodores are averaging 20.8 points per game, 145.8 passing yards per game, and 162.9 rushing yards per game. Quarterback Kyle Shurmur has completed 106 of 200 attempts for 1,089 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions. Ralph Webb has 855 yards on 164 carries and six touchdowns.

Auburn continues to improve each week after starting the season 1-2. The Tigers are now 6-2 overall and 4-1 in SEC play. After an easy 56-3 victory over Arkansas on Oct. 22, the Tigers had to battle Ole Miss on the road in a contest that wasn't decided until midway in the final stanza. An interception by Josh Holsey sealed the 40-29 victory for Auburn.

Against the Rebels, quarterback Sean White was 15 of 22 passing for 247 yards and a touchdown. Kamryn Pettway had a career game with 236 yards and a touchdown. For the night, the Tigers had 554 total yards of offense.

After eight contests, Auburn averages 303.4 rushing yards per game, 204.3 yards per game through the air, 507.6 total yards of offense per game, and 36.3 points per game.

Ole Miss had success against a defense that's been stingy all season. The Rebels had 570 total yards for the night and quarterback Chad Kelly threw for a career-high 465 yards.

Auburn's defense allows just 16 points per game. The unit allows 126.6 yards per game on the ground, 231.6 yards per game through the air, and 358.3 total yards.

On special teams, Daniel Carlson nailed all four of his field goal attempts, including a 45-yarder and a 47-yarder. Carlson was also perfect on extra points, going 4-for-4.

Prediction: Auburn 35-10.
