SEC East meets SEC West. Which Top 25 team will pass the test?
Jumping straight into this week’s predictions with bars because why not?
Seriously though, this is going to be a tough matchup between 4-0 squads going all the way.
last week against northern illinois, Kentucky held the Huskies to 199 passing yards. With that game, the Wildcats held their first four opponents under 200 passing yards for the first time since 1989. Considering head coach Mark Stoops was a defensive back during his college playing career, the UK has a solid D below it certainly tracks.
But Ole Miss would like to have a word.
The Rebels are one of four FBS squads averaging 40 or more points per game and giving up 10 or less. Ole Miss ranks fourth in the nation in rushing yards per game, averaging 280.8 yards per contest.
But we’re going to use the good old fashioned eyesight test for this one. And what we see is that Kentucky has the best win of the season among these teams. In Week 2, the Cats knocked down Florida 26-16. The best victory of the rebels? If we had to pick one, we’d say it was their 28-10 win over Troy in its season opener.
The cats get this victory.
Kentucky by 7 to 9 points
The undefeated Wolverines outplayed a fighter Maryland team last week. This game against Iowa will be another tough challenge.
The 3-1 Hawkeyes are fourth in the nation in red zone defense and sixth in the country in total defense. In their last two games, the Hawkeyes have not committed turnovers. To say that Iowa keeps a hawk eye on the ball is an understatement.
Michigan comes into this game with one of the best running backs in college football, Blake Corum. His 7.47 yards per carry ranks third in FBS. As a team, Michigan is tied for third in the nation with 22 rushes of at least 15 yards. Clearly, Michigan’s running game has been a big piece of their perfect season thus far.
Something else to keep in mind. Michigan leads this series all-time 43-15-4. And they previously faced each other in last year’s Big Ten championship game. Big Blue won easily, 42-3.
After this weekend, the Wolverines will have two straight wins over the Hawkeyes.
Michigan by 10 to 13 points
Do you know how often Alabama will legitimately look like Goliath against basically every opponent? And then there’s that game, maybe even two, that exposes Tide for the mere mortals they are?
Well, this Arkansas game is one of those.
The Razorbacks are coming off a narrow 23-21 loss to Texas A&M, but there are some bright spots for trainer Sam Pittman & Co. when they host Bama. The Razorbacks have intercepted 28 passes since the start of the 2020 season, which is tied for second in the SEC. And they lead the nation in sacks with a total of 20. That’s four more than the next closest team.
But regardless of how close we think Arkansas can hold this competition, Bama is still Bama.
Since 2018, the Tide has scored 40 or more points in 71.7% of its games. Bama’s D has forced a 3-and-out in 23 of 29 series this season. And when they do have the ball, the Tide have racked up 400 or more yards of offense in 54 of their last 60 games.
And Bama owns this all-time series 22-8.
So will it be close? Yes. But will Alabama return to Tuscaloosa with a win? Furthermore, if.
Alabama by 4 to 6 points
Michigan State has as many losses in two games this year as it did in all of last season. Sparty is going through some things and we hope that Maryland makes the most of this weekend.
On FOX Bet, the Terrapins are 8 point favorites. A late trash-time touchdown and 2-point conversion helped Maryland cover the 17 point spread last week against Michigan, and it cost a Super 6 contender. But the Terps were yet to pull out an outright victory. This weekend will be different. Look to Maryland to win and cover.
Maryland has won six straight against unranked teams. Pot, meet Kettle. But the statistics still stand. The Terps have also scored on 15 of their 16 drives in the red zone. And we cannot overstate how difficult it is to achieve.
Yes, the Spartans lead this series 10-2, but the state of Michigan today looks a little different than it did back then. Michigan State today allows opponents to convert third downs 43.3% of the time. That will be the downfall of the Spartans this weekend.
Maryland wins big.
Maryland by 10 to 13 points
“They haven’t played against anyone!” That’s us screaming into the void about these two teams. Well, Baylor played BYU and lost 26-20. But looking at the matchups of these squads, I see teams like albany Y Arkansas-Pine Bluff!
He is giving cupcake.
But this week begins the actual slate of games for State and Baylor.
Oklahoma State is 11-7 against the spread (ATS) and 10-8 against Baylor under coach Mike Gundy. In their last seven games against AP-rated opponents, the Cowboys have gone 6-1 SU.
Baylor, on the other hand, is 3-5 SU when facing top 10 opponents since 2018. But these other stats have us looking curiously at the Bears.
When they’re home favorites, as they are this weekend, the Bears are 10-0 against the Big 12 since 2017. And for 18 straight games, those burly Bears have held opponents under 30 points.
We’ve never seen a bear in the wild go down to a cowboy, and we won’t see one this weekend either.
Baylor by 7 to 9 points
Saving the best for last. This will certainly be the kind of game that puts you on the edge of your seat.
Clemson actually owns the series 59-29-1, but the Wolfpack beat the Tigers last year, 27-21. And we’re choosing them to surprise again this year.
Let’s see the Package. NC State leads the ACC allowing an average of just 11.8 points per game to opponents. The 261.5 yards per game they allow is second best in the conference. And they’re allowing for a 25% third-chance conversion rate that’s tied for 7th on FBS.
Clemson enters this matchup with a little more confidence because they thrive on night game atmospheres. Since 2015, the Tigers have gone 43-7 in night games. They also own the longest active home win streak in the nation at 36. Under coach Dabo Swinney, Clemson is 84-3 as a home favorite.
But we can’t get the Clemson game against forest stele out of our minds. It took the Tigers two overtime periods to defeat the Demon Deacons last week, a team we’d say isn’t as talented from top to bottom as NC State.
So Tiger-faithful, don’t look now. Come on Wolfpack.
NC status for 1 to 3
