SEC Football Predictions – 2013 Season


Sunday, May 26th, 2013

The SEC has taken home each of the last seven national championships, and with Alabama leading the way don’t be surprised if the SEC makes it seven straight. The SEC West is the best division in college football, but the East has a few teams capable of a BCS run as well. Check our predictions below.

rosters

East

  • 1. Georgia 10-2 (6-2): The ‘Dogs may need to rely on the offense more than ever this year, and luckily it should be more than up to the task. QB Aaron Murray should own the major SEC passing records by the end of the year, and there may not be a better RB tandem in the nation than Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, who are both just sophomores. The line is also back in full force, though it will need to improve if the offense is to reach new heights. The defense may take awhile to come around; Georgia must replace SEVEN players that were selected in this year’s NFL draft. Unfortunately, the schedule won’t give the Bulldogs any time to settle in on defense: the first two games are against Clemson’s high powered offense and SEC east rival South Carolina, and LSU comes to town for game four. The defense will almost surely end up as a strong unit, the only question is how big of a hole Georgia will be in after the early part of the schedule.
  • 2. South Carolina 9-3 (6-2): The Gamecocks will feature a pair of quarterbacks this season and will need both to improve their play to help offset the loss of RB Marcus Lattimore and WR Ace Sanders. WR Bruce Ellington appears ready to fill the void left by Sanders, and there are several other receivers looking to step up this fall. RB Mike Davis will get the first crack to replace Lattimore, but it will likely take a group effort make the offense go. You already know about DE Jadeveon Clowney, but the secondary is a strong group as well. LB is a bit of a mystery as all three starters must be replaced. South Carolina misses the Big Three from the West (Alabama, A&M and LSU) so the schedule aligns nicely for a run at a division championship. An early season matchup with Georgia will go a long way in deciding the East. (more…)
