Week 7 picks and predictions

WHAT’S AT STAKE?

Both teams could use a win. The Tigers dropped 13 spots in the rankings after a loss to Mississippi State and are clinging to slim hopes of a repeat SEC West title. The Volunteers are coming off an open date and still seeking their first league win under coach Jeremy Pruitt.

KEY MATCHUP

Which struggling offense can get it going? Auburn is 11th in the SEC in scoring offense, one spot ahead of the Volunteers. Both also rank in the bottom half in both rushing and passing, but the Tigers present a big challenge with the nation’s No. 6 scoring defense.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Tennessee: OLB Darrell Taylor recorded three sacks against Georgia. He was the first Tennessee player with three sacks in a game since eventual first-round draft pick Derek Barnett did it in 2016 against South Carolina.

Auburn: QB Jarrett Stidham is still trying to regain his 2017 form and get the Tigers’ offense back on track.
