MidWeek Games (2/19-20)

Georgia @ Kentucky

After being embarrassed on Super Tuesday last week, Kentucky pulled through in a tough battle Saturday against LSU. They'll be seeking to redeem themselves from last week's performance tonight, but will have to find a way to slow down UGA's Sundiatta Gaines. It'll be closer than 'Cats fans want, but the Big Blue Nation gets it done at home and holds onto 2nd place in the East.

Auburn @ Tennessee

Unless Tennessee is already focused on Saturday's mega-showdown with Memphis, no reason this one is close. Auburn won in Oxford Saturday, but no chance in Knoxville.

LSU @ Arkansas
LSU has been playing much better since John Brady disappeared, but they're overmatched in Fayetteville. The Hogs still have an outside shot at an SEC West crown, but a loss here would be devastating. Their defense is too much for LSU.

Mississippi State @ Ole Miss
This game will go one of two ways - Ole Miss gets back to their early season form and runs past MSU or the Rebels' wheels come completely off. Based on each team's play lately, I'm thinking option B is much more likely. MSU wins in Oxford.

South Carolina @ Florida
After an 0-2 week last week, this game is the Gators season. Another home loss here and the the Gators would most likely finish 4th in the East. Billy Donovan will have UF ready for this one. Florida wins.
