SEC Top Letdown Games for Every Team: 2022 College Football Season

SEC letdown games – the date on every team’s college football schedule that might be dangerous.

SEC schedules don’t let up too often, and that intensity level is an occasional problem. Where will that letdown come among all the big-time showdowns? Each team should win these games below, but let’s just say the focus might not be there – these should be more dangerous than they need to be.

Missouri Tigers Preview 2022

This is a good program that needs to get great fast.

In just the SEC East, Florida is about to rocket back up, Tennessee is becoming dangerous, South Carolina has some momentum, Kentucky is rock solid, and Georgia just won the national championship. However …

42-43.

Ever since losing the 2014 SEC Championship to Alabama, that’s what Missouri is – a decidedly mediocre 42-43.

Now, that’s partly due to living the SEC lifestyle. There aren’t a ton of bad losses in the bunch – even when the offense totally fell off the map in 2015 and the team went 4-8 in 2016 – but it’s been hard to bust out of this rut.

There was a time when Mizzou’s offense was a differentiating factor, and the program has been great at winning the games they’re supposed to – one borderline-unforgivable bowl loss aside – but outside of a strong road win over Florida in 2018 there haven’t been a whole lot of big, splashy moments.

But that’s living in the SEC. You can do lots of good things, and you can have a big, splashy recruiting class that might be your best ever, and it gets thrown on the pile with everyone else in the conference.

Yeah, Alabama would jump off a building if its recruiting class was Missouri’s, but it really was a good haul of talent for head coach Eliah Drinkwitz. Now in Year Three, the program has to start busting through to look like it at least belongs in the SEC top ten.

The defense has to be far stronger, especially against the run. The offense needs to be better against the good teams, and there needs to be a little muscle flexing, especially after the way last year ended with the bowl loss.

College Football Rankings, Season Predictions: SEC Spring Version 2022

SEC college football rankings and predictions with realistic best and worst case records and quick analysis – the 2022 spring version.

SEC college football rankings and predictions with the realistic best and worst case records and quick analysis – the 2022 spring version.


[mm-video type=playlist id=01f1343a1wt7q817p7 player_id=none image=https://collegefootballnews.com/wp-content/plugins/mm-video/images/playlist-icon.png]

As always, the SEC is going to be loaded with talent, full of teams in the College Football Playoff chase, and there’s a shot at least 12 of the 14 teams end up going bowling.

And then Alabama and Georgia will show off how awesome they are – again.

However, Tennessee has improved. Florida will be better. Texas A&M is terrific, Ole Miss reloaded through the transfer portal, and whatever team really is 7th-best in the SEC West could probably fight for most other division titles in college football.

There will be more transfers, more big personnel changes, and several other parts to the SEC puzzle, but for now, this 2022 looks even better than 2021.

The rankings are based on how good the teams should be and not the final projected records. Keeping in mind that this all could/might/will change when we make the final calls in August …

2022 College Football Schedules By Teams: All 131 Schools

SEC East Rankings: Spring Version

1. Georgia Bulldogs

2020: 8-2 2019: 12-2 2018: 11-3

No, this won’t be 2020 LSU falling off the map after a historic national championship season, but no one loses that much NFL talent – especially off the defense – and gets better. However, there’s still more than enough talent coming back to be in the national championship mix.

The Dawgs should be favored in every game with no Alabama or Texas A&M to face from the West. They have to deal with Oregon to start the season, and there should be a slip somewhere along the way, but it’s going to take something major to beat this team twice with this slate.

Realistic Best Case Record: 12-0
Realistic Worst Case Record: 8-4
2022 Georgia Prediction, Spring Football Version: 11-1
CFN 2021 Spring Prediction: 11-1

Georgia 2022 Schedule & Analysis

2. Florida Gators

2020: 8-4 2019: 11-2 2018: 10-3

How fast can Billy Napier get this whole thing going? He was always the next IT head coach in college football, and now he gets to finally crank it all up with his amazing rushing offense that puts up big, efficient numbers.

All the work done last year as the Gator offense pivoted styles should pay off with QB Anthony Richardson and Louisiana transfer RB Montrell Johnson about to blow up. The O line should be fine, but the defense that loses seven key starters will need some time. It’s Florida – the athletes are there, and the overall production can’t be less consistent than 2021.

The schedule doesn’t have enough early layups with Utah to start and Kentucky and at Tennessee in September. On the plus side, the team only leaves Florida once before going to Texas A&M in early November, and leaves the state just three times overall.

Realistic Best Case Record: 10-2
Realistic Worst Case Record: 5-7
2022 Florida Prediction, Spring Football Version: 9-3
CFN 2021 Spring Prediction: 9-3
Florida 2021 Final Record: 6-7
Florida 2022 Schedule & Analysis

3. Tennessee Volunteers

2020: 3-7 2019: 8-5 2018: 5-7

Is this finally when Tennessee turns the corner and becomes something fantastic? There aren’t a ton of personnel losses, getting QB Hendon Hooker back for another year was huge, and now everyone knows how to work the Josh Heupel offense.

The schedule helps with a manageable start before dealing with Florida, at LSU, and Alabama. Going to Georgia doesn’t help, and sneaky-tough dates at South Carolina and Pitt will make this a bit of a challenge, but anything less than eight wins and a step forward will feel like a disappointment with this team.

Realistic Worst Case Record: 6-6

[lawrence-related id=546064]

4. Kentucky Wildcats

2020: 5-6 2019: 8-5 2018: 10-3

The Wildcats didn’t have massive personnel losses, but the ones who are gone were big. The offensive backfield is loaded, a few transfers will help to fill the holes across the attack, and seven starters should be back on defense. Again, though, it’s going to be partly about quality of returning talent as much as quantity.

The schedule gets a tune-up against Miami University before going to Florida. The non-conference schedule is a relative breeze – Louisville makes the trip over to Lexington – there’s no Alabama, Texas A&M, or LSU from the West, and the Georgia game is at home.

Realistic Best Case Record: 10-2
Realistic Worst Case Record: 5-7
2022 Kentucky Prediction, Spring Football Version: 7-5
CFN 2021 Spring Prediction: 7-5

5. South Carolina Gamecocks

2020: 2-8 2019: 4-8 2018: 7-6

This just got interesting after a great first season under Shane Beamer. Now the Gamecocks return relatively strong on offense with Oklahoma QB Spencer Rattler stepping in behind a veteran line and strong group of target. The D is another story with several big pieces of the front six gone, but the line should be a positive.

It’s going to be a grind, though, with road games at Clemson, Florida, Kentucky, and Arkansas to go along with home dates against Georgia, Texas A&M and Tennessee. November ends with a brutal kick – at Florida, Tennessee, at Clemson – so there’s no margin for error early on.

Realistic Best Case Record: 8-4
Realistic Worst Case Record: 4-8
2022 South Carolina Prediction, Spring Football Version: 6-6
CFN 2021 Spring Prediction: 5-7
South Carolina 2021 Final Record: 7-6
South Carolina 2022 Schedule & Analysis

6. Missouri Tigers

2020: 5-5 2019: 6-6 2018: 8-5

Someone apparently likes to use the transfer portal. The Tigers might have lost a slew of parts on both sides of the ball – 13 starters are done – but they filled in the gaps fast, had decent depth to rely on, and they should be okay as long as the lines come together fast.

There’s Louisiana Tech and Abilene Christian early on to tune up. and there are more than enough winnable games to at least get to six wins and a bowl. Throw in the break of not having to face Alabama, Texas A&M, Ole Miss, or LSU – and with Georgia coming to Columbia – and this needs to be a step-up season for head coach Eliah Drinkwitz.

Realistic Worst Case Record: 4-8

7. Vanderbilt Commodores

2020: 0-9 2019: 3-9 2018: 6-7

Second year head coach Clark Lea still has a whole lot of work to do., but at least the team returns with plenty of experience. The 2021 team took its usual lumps, but the positive part is all the experience returning back on both sides of the ball. Now the team needs to find more steady playmakers – and find an offense.

Getting to start out the season at Hawaii will at least be a nice way to enjoy a late August Saturday, and there should be enough winnable games to get past the two victories of last season. However, it’s going to take a massive upset for the Commodores to get an SEC win.

Realistic Worst Case Record: 1-11

2022 NFL Draft: Best Picks of All-Time From Every SEC School

Who are the SEC’s greatest NFL Draft picks of all-time? Here are the top three best picks from each SEC program.

Who are the best NFL Draft picks from each of the SEC programs? Which players turned into the greatest stars at the next level?


Who were the best NFL draft picks from every SEC school?

Considering the conference dominates the NFL draft with all of its talent, you’d think this would be easy – roughly a quarter of every draft lately is made up by SEC players – but this is way harder than you might think.

This isn’t a list of the top pro players to come from the SEC schools – these are the best draft picks.

If an SEC player came up with a great career for someone other than the team that drafted him, he’s not on this list, or he’s diminished a bit.

The goal with any draft pick is to get a player who performs at a high level for a long period of time, so longevity matters.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Ole Miss vs Missouri Game Preview, SEC Tournament


Why Ole Miss Will Win

Ole Miss should be able to crank up the threes enough to stay in this.

It lost seven of its last eight games because the scoring punch hasn’t been there and the defense has been a giant problem. On the plus side, Missouri isn’t sign to light it up.

It’s struggling to get anything consistently going with too many turnovers and absolutely nothing happening from three. Worse yet, Mizzou can’t guard the three. However …

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why Missouri Will Win

As bad as the Tigers have been, they managed to beat Ole Miss twice.

They rolled to a 25 point win in the first meeting in January, and won with one of its better shooting days of the year in February.

Ole Miss might be able to hit the three, but it’s not putting up enough points on the board. It’s having a hard time getting to 70 points and the consistency just isn’t there.

Worse yet, it’s not getting to the free throw line. Any sort of a push from Missouri early on will make it tough, but …

Top 25 Game Previews, Predictions

Ole Miss vs Missouri: What’s Going To Happen

Ole Miss is overdue for a big performance.

It’s coming up with takeaways and it’s okay at guarding the three. That should be enough to keep this low scoring and close. Missouri is having big issues scoring, too.

But not against the Rebels.

The Tigers went off in the first two games, and they’ll work it around enough to come close to 50% from the field in this, too.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Tennessee vs Missouri Game Preview


Why Tennessee Will Win

Missouri has stopped scoring.

It lost four of its last five games and 13 of the last 17 mainly because there’s just no pop. It’s not hitting from three, it’s scuffling to get to 40% from the field – and wasn’t close to getting there in losses to Arkansas and Mississippi State – and it can’t get 60 points lately.

The Tigers aren’t manufacturing points by getting to the line, they don’t come up with enough steals and turnovers to get on the move, and rebounding isn’t there to come up with second chance points.

Other than that, everything is going great.

Tennessee lost to Arkansas on Saturday, but other than that power outage the offense has been fine, the assists are there for easy points, and it shouldn’t take much to get by.

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why Missouri Will Win

What is Missouri doing right? It’s doing a great job at guarding the three.

The defense has its moments and isn’t allowing a lot of offensive rebounds. It needs to keep the score low and it has to take advantage of every possible scoring chance.

Tennessee is coming off a 48 point outing against Arkansas when the shots weren’t falling and there was absolutely nothing happening from three, hitting just four of its 24 tries – and that’s where it starts.

Missouri has to do what it does when it comes to guarding from the outside. Tennessee has occasionally gone dead cold on the road – like in losses to LSU and Texas – and the Tigers have to force that, but …

Top 25 Game Previews, Predictions

What’s Going To Happen

Again, Missouri just doesn’t score.

It took the intensity of a great day from Arkansas to keep Tennessee’s offense down, and that’s not happening for a full 40 minutes in Columbia.

It’ll be a good first half, but there won’t be any Tiger threes to matter and there won’t be enough free throws to slow down the momentum.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Missouri vs Iowa State Game Preview


Why Missouri Will Win

Iowa State fits for Mizzou – there isn’t enough size to matter.

The Cyclones are okay on the inside, but they’re not great on the boards, the don’t get nearly enough defensive rebounds, and they’re about to have problems against a Tiger defense that comes up with a whole lot of blocks.

The guard oriented offense that’s struggling with its consistency from the outside. The attack might have been enough to get by Oklahoma State in a fun overtime battle, but the Texas Tech and TCU defenses shut things down from the outside.

Missouri doesn’t shoot the lights out, but it should be able to generate a whole slew of offensive rebounds and second chances.

NFL Mock Draft: First 1st round mock

Why Iowa State Will Win

Missouri is having even more problems than Iowa State.

It battled hard with No. 1 Auburn in a 55-54 loss, but that was the sixth defeat in the last eight games. The offense doesn’t do nearly enough from three – it came up with double-digit threes just once this season – and the D doesn’t force enough mistakes to generate easy points.

Iowa State’s defense should be able to clamp down with enough takeaways to get on the move. Missouri isn’t built to make big comebacks or keep up in any sort of a shootout.

The Tigers are 1-7 when allowing more than 75 points. Iowa State is 9-0 when getting to 75 or more, but …

What’s Going To Happen

This isn’t going to be a whole lot of fun offensively. Iowa State doesn’t score enough, Missouri can’t seem to catch any sort of a break and can’t do enough from the outside.

It should make for a game with a few power outages. It’ll come down to mistakes, and Iowa State will force more of them.
