South Carolina Gamecocks 2013 Football Preview – South Carolina finished No. 7 in the polls in 2012, their best ranking in school history, but they were still the third-best team in the SEC East. They’ll be returning 11 starters which shouldn’t hurt them too much in the long run.
2013 Tennessee Vols Football Preview – Even with Tyler Bray and multiple standout receivers on the offense last season, Tennessee could only muster five wins, with only one of them coming in SEC play. That was against Kentucky in the final Game of the season. Now, with their Fourth different head coach since 2008 in Butch Jones, the Volunteers will just be hoping they can reach five or six wins again.
2013 Vanderbilt Football Preview with Schedule and Odds – Vanderbilt started 2012 with a 2-4 record, but reeled off seven straight wins to mark the most wins by the Commodores football team since 1915. That’s saying something for the strides they made last year with head coach James Franklin. The positives for Vandy are that they will be returning 13 starters including seven on the offensive side.
Ole Miss Football Preview with Odds and Schedule – After two straight losing seasons, Huge Freeze already has the Ole Miss faithful looking up after finishing 7-5 last year, including a bowl win over Pittsburgh. An even better season is expected with 15 returning starters and a Top Five recruiting class.
2013 Miss State College Football Schedule with Odds and Preview – Mississippi State surprised plenty of people last year when they started the season out with seven straight wins. Of course, a deeper look showed that they didn’t beat anyone of importance in those opening Games. They finished with an 8-5 record, but lost five of their last six Games. They’ll return 11 starters which is good, but not great.
Missouri Tigers 2013 Football Schedule with Preview and Odds – Missouri’s debut in the SEC was a bit of a disappointment to say the least as they struggled to find their footing all season finishing with a 5-7 record with only two wins in Conference play. That’s what happens when you get the short end of the stick as the two teams they had to face from the SEC West were Alabama and Texas A&M.
2013 Florida Gators College Football Betting Preview with Schedule – Florida had a good season record-wise in 2012 finishing with only one loss in the regular season. They were then upset in the Sugar Bowl even as -14 point favorites against Louisville. That led many people to believe their record was somewhat deceiving, especially after they had to eke out more than a couple of close wins throughout the year to less than stellar teams (Missouri 14-7, LA-LAfayette 27-20).
2013 Kentucky Wildcats Football Preview with Odds and Schedule – Kentucky is just one of those teams that can’t get over the hump, playing in the always difficult SEC. The Wildcats are regarded as a basketball school with a football team. While they had shown promise in recent years with a couple bowl appearances, they took a step back in 2012, finishing a measly 2-10.
2013 Auburn Tigers College Football Preview and Schedule – Auburn found themselves in a hole from the start last year and could once again be in that same situation in 2013. They are returning 15 starters which is good, but that team only had three wins and zero in SEC play. At head coach, Gene Chizik is gone with former offensive coordinator Guz Malzahn taking his place.
2013 Arkansas Razorbacks College Football Preview with Odds and Schedule – Well, there’s only one way to go for this team and that’s up. In Tyler Wilson’s senior season, the Razorbacks were a lost team without Bobby Petrino and it showed immediately.
Texas A&M College Football Preview with Schedule and Odds – Texas A&M surprised everyone last year in the college football world. They weren’t in the Top 25 to start the season and proceeded to finish with only two losses while playing in the best conference. Both of those came to the usual SEC powerhouses Florida and LSU.
LSU College Football Preview with Schedule and Odds – LSU didn’t exactly finish the 2012 season how they wanted to after going into the year ranked No. 3 in the AP Polls. They faltered on the biggest stages, losing to Florida and at home to Alabama. Without much motivation in their Chick-fil-A bowl Game, they lost to Clemson by a point. While their defense was one of the best in the nation, it was their offense that let them down in the big Games.
2013 Alabama Crimson Tide Football Preview Schedule and Odds – It’s no surprise that Alabama is once again the favorite to win the BCS title in 2013. The Crimson Tide have won three of the last Four National Championship’s and look to extend their dominance even further. The scary thing for the rest of the nation is that they are returning 14 starters from last year’s squad.
2013 Georgia Bulldogs College Football Preview Schedule and Odds – In 2012, Georgia finally put together the type of season many thought possible for them and reaffirmed faith back into head coach Mark Richt. The only problem for them was that while they did finish 12-2, the Bulldogs only made it to the Capital One Bowl after losing to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.
