So there you have it. Officially, I was 9-3 (.750) in Week 1. That’s not going to get me into any BCS bowls. I need a big Week 2. Here goes:
Mississippi State 31, Auburn 30: Why not a thriller in the first SEC game of the season? These two offenses have come a long way since the 3-2 tug-o-war two years ago in Starkville. Both programs have made considerable strides across the board, but Mississippi State’s defensive line will be the difference. Now that I’ve made my pick, it’s OK for Mississippi State fans to go ahead and ring their cowbells.
