SEC 2014 Predictions: 2nd Place Finishers

2nd in the East: SOUTH CAROLINA GAMECOCKS

South Carolina, like a lot of teams in the SEC this year, lost some key players from a year ago. The Gamecocks are coming off a 11-2 season though. I think with QB Dylan Thompson having a good amount of SEC experience and one of the better RBs in a loaded SEC RB class, SC will have another really good season. The Ol’ Ball Coach will have the Gamecocks ready to compete for and SEC East title run. The early season match up against UGA in Columbia will probably once again be the deciding factor on who will come out of the East. I think UGA has the upper hand with their skill position players especially with Heisman Candidate Todd “TG3” Gurley.

PREDICTION: 10-2 (6-2 in SEC)

 

2nd in the West: AUBURN TIGERS

The Auburn Tigers are coming off a hugely surprising 2013 Season. The Tigers had 2 Incredibly “Lucky” plays last season to put them in the National Championship game. But every team needs a little luck to make it into the Championship Game. I don’t see Auburn being able to repeat their 2013 Championship run. With the “Iron Bowl” in Tuscaloosa and the “Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry in Athens  this season, Alabama and Georgia will be out for some serious revenge. Nick Marshall will probably put up crazy numbers in Gus Malzahn’s offense and could be a serious Heisman Contender. They will have to replace star RB Trey Mason but with the talent they recruit that shouldn’t be terribly difficult. Auburn will have another really good season but I don’t see them making it into the SEC Championship game this year.

PREDICTION: 10-2 (6-2 in SEC)
