The Future of the SEC This Year: That One Week Late in the Season

Maybe things won't be so bad for him after all.

Want to know how the SEC will turn out week-by-week before it happens? Don't we all. So we hooked up the closest thing college football fans have to a time machine and will simulate each week of the season using EA's NCAA Football '13. Please keep in mind that it's all in good fun and we're not saying this is how it actually will happen. Though that would be pretty cool and a little bit eery.

This is not a week of standout games. Both division leaders are playing against FCS opponents and Tennessee Vanderbilt might actually be the most intriguing game of the remaining match-ups. Especially when we consider what happens to Missouri.

SCORES

TENNESSEE 33, VANDERBILT 20
The Volunteers can largely count on one thing in good and bad seasons: They're probably going to beat Vanderbilt. This isn't a particularly bad season by recent Tennessee history, with a 7-4 record already chalked up and a hapless Kentucky scheduled for next week. The Vols roll up an impressive 499 yards in the win.

ARKANSAS 38, MISSISSIPPI STATE 24
This is Arkansas offense we were expecting to see. The Hogs call up 502 yards of total offense, including going 25-of-33 for 348 yards in the passing department. Mississippi State's 348 total yards aren't too shabby, but they're not enough to beat the Razorbacks this week.

LSU 24, OLE MISS 13
The Bayou Bengal's total offensive output of 296 yards make this a lo-fi win, but it still has to look good to a program just trying to recover what it can of a once-promising season. For its part, Ole Miss is still alive for bowl consideration, nothing that most Rebels fans would care to wager on right now.

SYRACUSE 17, MISSOURI 14
The teams just do break 600 combined yards in this slogfest (602), with neither team even hitting the 150-yard mark in the passing game. Missouri is probably set for a mid-tier bowl unless it can pull an upset next week against fellow former Big 12 team Texas A&M.
