Breaking Down The Best Games Of Week Four. The SEC Remains The Cream Of The Crop
The fastest four months of the year are here, and like always they are flying by.
It’s hard to believe that we are already a quarter of the way through the regular season and with week four about to get underway, the contenders are starting to separate themselves from the pretenders. So, without further ado, it’s time to break down the top games in the top conference for the fourth week of the season.
Alabama vs. Texas A&M
The Crimson Tide gets their first real test of the season this weekend as Jimbo Fisher’s 22nd-ranked Aggies come to Tuscaloosa. The Aggies have looked strong early in Fisher’s tenure, pounding two cream-puffs, along with a near-miss against second-ranked Clemson. Texas A&M will become the first team to hang with Alabama for more than a quarter, but still expect Alabama to pull away late.
Prediction: Alabama 34, Texas A&M 17
Georgia vs. Missouri
The defending SEC champion Georgia Bulldogs face their toughest task of the season as well, as they head on the road for a night game against Missouri and their high-flying offense led by top NFL prospect, quarterback Drew Lock. Many people thought that South Carolina would give the Dawgs a run for their money two weeks ago, and that didn’t work out too well, but this will be different. The Tigers’ offense is for real and they will be able to keep pace with Georgia for a little bit, but the Dawgs, led by quarterback Jake Fromm, will be able to outscore them.
Prediction: Georgia 41, Missouri 27

Mississippi State vs. Kentucky
The under-the-radar game of the week is going to be played in Lexington, Kentucky, and it doesn’t involve John Calipari. After stunning Florida in the Swamp, getting their first win over the Gators in 32 years, the Wildcats look like they have their best team in over a decade, under head coach Mark Stoops. They will be joined on Kroger Field by another underrated 3-0 SEC team in Mississippi State. The Bulldogs have a team under first-year head coach Joe Moorhead that could seriously contend for the college football playoff, and quarterback Nick Fitzgerald is a legit star. Kentucky is good, but Mississippi State has a chance to be special. This will be close for awhile, but the Bulldogs will score a couple of touchdowns late to put the game away.
Prediction: Mississippi State 31, Kentucky 14
