Tennessee, 2-6, 6-6
Kentucky, 2-6, 6-6

SEC West Projected Standings
Alabama, 7-1, 12-1
LSU, 6-2, 9-3
Mississippi State, 5-3, 9-3

Auburn, 2-6, 5-7
Mississippi, 1-7, 3-9

SEC Championship Game
Alabama over South Carolina

Team most likely to exceed my expectations:  Auburn.  Some people feel Auburn will re-load, but the depth of this conference doesn't necessarily allow that when you suffer the personnel losses the Tigers did.  I could be wrong, but I have the Tigers home for the Bowl Season.

Team most likely to play below my expectation:  Mississippi State.  I honestly feel like Mississippi State can challenge for the SEC West title if a few things materialize, mainly consistent QB and LB play.  Or they could just be in that next tier where everyone else has them.

SEC Player of the Year
