LSU picked to win the SEC West, SEC Championship

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU has been picked to win not only the SEC West, but the SEC Championship as well, by Fox Sports College Football Analyst Bruce Feldman.

Feldman predicts a LSU win over Alabama to win the West and a victory by the Tigers over the Vols to win the SEC Championship.

New DC Dave Aranda is a big upgrade, and Year 3 for QB Brandon Harris should bring more improvement from an offense that will still lean heavily on a punishing run game but also has downfield playmakers outside to burn defenses. My hunch is this year the Tigers, bigger up front on D and on the O-line, beat Bama and win the SEC title.

SEC West Predictions:
LSU: 11-1, 7-1 
Alabama: 11-1, 7-1
Texas A&M: 9-3, 5-3 
Ole Miss: 8-4, 5-3 
Arkansas: 7-5, 4-4 
Miss. State: 6-6, 2-6
Auburn: 5-7. 2-6

SEC East Predictions:
Tennessee: 10-2, 6-2
Georgia: 9-3, 5-3
Florida: 8-4, 5-3 
Kentucky: 6-6, 3-5
Vanderbilt: 5-7, 2-6 
Missouri: 5-7, 2-6 
South Carolina: 4-8, 1-7

SEC title game: LSU over Tennessee:
Both teams ride revamped defenses to Atlanta and each have potent running games and a lot to prove when it comes to their passing attacks. I'll stick with the Tigers, who I think have more team speed and a better O-line.
