SEC Week 7 Predictions: Alabama-Texas A&M Showdown, Florida Visits LSU

Kyle Allen

The SEC is home to two of college football’s biggest showdowns for Week 7. Alabama heads to College Station to take on Texas A&M in a must-win game for coach Nick Saban’s team. After a defeat against Ole Miss earlier this year, the Crimson Tide can’t afford two losses in the SEC West or playoff picture. The Aggies are 5-0, but Alabama is this team’s biggest test so far in 2015. The other huge matchup this weekend in the SEC takes place in Baton Rouge. LSU hosts Florida in a meeting between two unbeaten teams and a potential preview of the SEC Championship in December. How will the Gators respond without starting quarterback Will Grier? Elsewhere in the SEC for Week 7, Ole Miss steps out of conference for a trip to Memphis, Georgia hosts Missouri, South Carolina begins the post-Steve Spurrier era with a home game against Vanderbilt, and Kentucky takes on Auburn on Thursday night. Mississippi State finishes non-conference play with a visit from Louisiana Tech.
