College Football Predictions: Southeastern Conference
While college football has a huge following all across the country, it is the south that is perhaps home to the most fanatical fans of the game. In some parts, anything less than a National Championship is considered a total failure. It should come as no surprise that the southern states have become breeding grounds for the best players in the college game while also having arguably the best conference in college football for years now.
The SEC is that conference, and it is home to the current National Champion, the Alabama Crimson Tide, as well as last year’s runner-up, the Georgia Bulldogs. Both of those team’s figure to be contenders again this season, but can any other team in the SEC touch them?
Let’s take a closer look.

SEC East Preview and Predictions
The Georgia Bulldogs made a huge breakthrough in Coach Kirby Smart’s second year in charge, making it all the way to the National Championship Game. As good as the Dawgs were last season, it is worth remembering that they were a team stacked with an elite class of returning seniors. Most of those guys will be plying their trade in the NFL this season, which means that there are going to be a lot of holes to plug, especially on the defensive side of the football. It certainly helps that the incoming recruiting class was about the best on paper. The East is still Georgia’s to lose.
The South Carolina Gamecocks would appear to be the biggest challenger for Georgia in the East, and they can get a leg up on the defending champs if they can beat them in Week 2 of the season. This is a team very much on the rise, and if they can take another step forward this season, they could prove to be serious challengers to the East crown.

The Florida Gators had an awful season in 2017 but have a new coaching staff in place who have some very nice pieces to work with. Dan Mullen will make this team better quite quickly but asking him to turn them into a division winner this season is probably asking way too much.
That should be your top 3 in the SEC East.
SEC West Preview and Predictions
Let’s be perfectly clear here, Alabama are National Champions for a reason. They have the best coach in the college game, and are able to keep reloading year after year, regardless of how many players they lose to the NFL draft. The Crimson Tide look like a shoe-in to win the SEC West, although there are some questions at the QB spot. Tua Tagovailoa will likely steal the spot from Jalen Hurts after his amazing second half performance last season.
Joe Moorhead will be the new man in charge at the Mississippi State Bulldogs, and it’s fair to suggest that he is walking into a great situation, with 16 starters returning to the fold. Let’s not forget that this is a team that won 9 games last season. If Moorhead can get this group to buy into his system early, they could prove to be a major threat.
The Auburn Tigers would certainly appear to be the main contenders here, especially when you consider that they won the West last season before losing to Georgia in the SEC Championship Game. They will be coming into this season with a bit of a chip on their shoulder, and they will know that they will need to win their games against Georgia and Alabama if they are to be playoff bound this year.
That rounds out your top 3 in the SEC West.
