Here we are in the final week of October, and SEC games just took on a whole new meaning.
No. 11 Mississippi State will travel to Tuscaloosa to take on No. 1 Alabama in a battle of unbeaten teams. The Bulldogs are still in search of respect, while the Crimson Tide looks like a machine that shows no signs of letting up.
Meanwhile, down in Jacksonville, the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party will take on new meaning this year as the SEC East championship will likely be decided by the winner. There is an outside shot that South Carolina can slide into the Georgia Dome, but for all intents and purposes, the Georgia vs. Florida game is the de facto SEC East Championship Game.
Which SEC teams get wins in Week 9? I make my picks in this slideshow.
2012 Record: 58-12 (30-31 ATS)
