FAYETTEVILLE — The SEC has 10 games on the schedule this week with many of the teams going outside the conference for a game.

The headliner this week is No. 21 Arkansas at No. 2 Alabama. As far as last week, I went 6-2 on my predictions. For the season I am 69-24.

This week’s predictions (all kickoff times CT).

Charleston Southern (4-5) at No. 1 Georgia (10-0, 8-0), 11 a.m., ESPN+ and SEC Network+

Georgia will be 11-0 after this blowout win. The Pick: Georgia

Prairie View (7-2) at No. 16 Texas A&M (7-3, 4-3), 11 a.m., ESPN+ and SEC Network+

Prairie View is better than several of these schools playing against an SEC team this week, but no match for the Aggies. The Pick: Texas A&M

Tennessee State (5-5) at No. 25 Mississippi State (6-4, 4-3), 11 a.m., SEC Network+ and ESPN+

The Bulldogs defeated Auburn last week. The Pick: Mississippi State

New Mexico State (1-9) at Kentucky (7-3, 5-3), 11 a.m., SEC Network

The good news for New Mexico State is it probably won’t be worse than last week’s 59-3 loss to Alabama, but the bad news is it’s still an SEC school and it will get ugly. The Pick: Kentucky

No. 21 Arkansas (7-3, 3-3) at No. 2 Alabama (9-1, 5-1), 2:30 p.m., CBS

Arkansas and Alabama both had very close games with LSU the past two weeks. Arkansas beat Texas A&M and Alabama lost to them. This game could be much closer than some expect. The Pick: Alabama

Florida (5-5, 2-5) at Missouri (5-5, 2-4), 3 p.m., SEC Network

Florida and Missouri were both expected to be better this year than they are, but the Gators are a real mystery team. They almost beat Alabama and now struggle to beat anyone. The Pick: Missouri

Auburn (6-4, 3-3) at South Carolina (5-5, 2-5), 6 p.m., ESPN

This could be a good game too. Auburn let a big lead slip away against Mississippi State and lost. South Carolina blasted Florida recently. The Pick: Auburn

Vanderbilt (2-8, 0-6) at No. 12 Ole Miss (8-2, 4-2), 6:30 p.m., SEC Network

Ole Miss has been on a roll since narrowly beating Arkansas in Oxford. They will get an easy win this week. The Pick: Ole Miss

South Alabama (5-5) at Tennessee (5-5, 3-4), 6:30 p.m., ESPNU

South Alabama isn’t a bad team. They aren’t going to win this game though. The Pick: Tennessee

UL Monroe (4-6) at LSU (4-6, 2-5), 8 p.m., ESPN2

UL Monroe does own a win over Liberty. LSU will likely give Ed Orgeron his final win at the school this game since the next one is against Texas A&M. The Pick: LSU
