Team Speed Kills Picks Week 3

With nine teams playing SEC or Power 5 competition, there’s more variance in our picks

Three inter-SEC games and three games with SEC teams against power five teams offer up more (hopefully) competitive games than last week’s slate which had numerous games against FCS teams.

For the non-conference games, the Kansas State-Vanderbilt and Purdue at Missouri matchups ended up with a pretty even split amongst our contributors while the majority of our pickers think that Ole Miss will drop their late night game at Cal.

Despite their offensive struggles against Michigan and coming off last week’s cancellation, three quarters of our pickers are favoring Florida over Tennessee while this week’s trendy upset pick of Mississippi State over LSU did not gain much traction.
