College Football Week 2 Quick Picks: Mississippi State, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, LSU and More

| by

Auburn v. MISSISSIPPI STATE

LJ: Auburn made Clemson look good, Mississippi State gets it done at home.

Flounder: I like Dan Mullen in this game due to the Bulldogs ability to run. If Clemson can do it, so can MSU.

Bryant: Miss St. Mullen notches his first SEC West win not against Ole Miss.

Billy:  Gene Chizik's record without Cam Newton? 21-30.  No Cam Newton?  Bulldogs win.

Western Kentucky v. ALABAMA

LJ: Western Kentucky should go ahead and just forfeit.  Bama big.

Flounder: Bama will conquer the Hilltoppers. It could be ugly.

Bryant: Alabama

Billy:  This is just as good as a bye week for Alabama.  Tide cruise.

The rest of the conference picks are after the break...

Florida v. TEXAS A&M

LJ: New head coach, first game in the SEC. Florida gets the “W”

Flounder: Love this match-up. Going to go with A&M for some reason, maybe since UF is shaky and A&M is hungry to prove themselves.

Bryant: Must win game for Muschamp. A&M sitting out last week hurts the Aggies as UF gets a win.

Billy:  The Gators offense can't do much, but their defense can.  Gators welcome Aggies.

Georgia State v. TENNESSEE

LJ: Dooley off the hot seat, Vol’s 2-0 to start the season.

Flounder: UT will have a “Bray Day” via the pass.

Bryant: Vols tune up for the Gators.

Billy:  Vols fine tune their passing offense and blow away Georgia State.

Washington v. LSU

LJ: Death Valley at night is no place for a PAC 12 school.  LSU wins big.

Flounder: Could be fun to watch. LSU will be tested but by the end of the game, the SEC defense and speed will be too much. LSU all the way.

Bryant: LSU, though closer than those on the Bayou will care for.

Billy:  LSU is too much for the Huskies.  This will be a methodical beating.

UTEP v. OLE MISS

LJ: UTEP gave Oklahoma trouble last week; they beat ole miss this week.

Flounder: Could see a upset but key word is could. UTEP has a chance but still think the Rebels pull out a nail-bitter.

Bryant: Ole Miss, but ugly.

Billy:  The Freeze era continues its rocky start, and the Miners knock off an SEC foe.

Arkansas v. LOUISIANA-MONROE

LJ: Hogs take down cupcake #2.  Smith for coach of the year.

Flounder: Arky will have fun in this game.

Bryant: Arky.

Billy:  Hogs know how to deal with mid-majors.  Expect 300+ yards passing.

Kent State v. KENTUCKY

LJ: Kentucky rebounds after looking terrible last weekend.  Big win for Big Blue.

Flounder:  I’m going with Kent State. Sorry Joker but you have proved nothing to me in week one.

Bryant: Joker gets the W, but doesn’t answer many questions.

Billy:  This may be very close.  The Wildcats are very bad, but not this bad.

Georgia v. MISSOURI

LJ: Best Match up of week #2, Georgia in a close one.

Flounder: Mizz pulls the upset. Don’t quote me but I do think UGa will have trouble.

Bryant: Mizzou takes advantage of a short handed UGA D.

Billy:  A fired-up Tiger squad takes advantage of UGa's secondary woes.

Vanderbilt v. NORTHWESTERN

LJ: Vandy gets big win, defense looks good against the Wildcats.

Flounder: Vandy. Coach Franklin has something going up yonder.

Bryant: Vandy bounces back with a solid W.

Billy:  Vanderbilt notches another win for the SEC over B1G, and quite easily.

East Carolina v. SOUTH CAROLINA

LJ: Banged up Shaw, USC will look for Lattimore to run for big game.  USC in a closer than expected win.

Flounder: USC with or without Shaw. Lattimore has a great day running the ball and the USC defense plays big.

Bryant: Spurrier rides Lattimore to a win.

Billy:  South Carolina grinds out a win with a less than awesome offense.
