A solid week for the Southeastern Conference finished with SEC teams going 9-2 against nonconference opponents, including wins over No. 8 Michigan and NC State.
The "Game of the Week" was anything but a game, as the Crimson Tide opened with 21 unanswered points and never looked back, dominating Michigan 41-14.
As for your guaranteed picks? A solid start, to say the least. I whiffed only on the Tennessee victory over NC State and finished even against the spread. I'm shooting for an 80 percent mark on the year in head-to-head matchups and above .500 against the spread.
This week, SEC play really kicks into high gear, with three conference games scheduled.
Will your favorite team continue their run? What's my impression of last week's performances? There's only one way to find out, and it involves depressing your index finger.
Picks thus far: 10-1
Against the spread: 3-3
