Every week throughout these seashe, GoVols247’s Patrick Brown, Ryan Callahan, Ben McKee and Wes Rucker will make their predictions for the biggest games in college football, focusing on the Southeastern Conference and top-25 teams — and, of course, weigh in on how Tennessee will fare.
If you weren’t able to participate in our annual GoVols247 Pick ‘Em competition, which is already under way, feel free to post your own picks — or point out the flaws in the GoVols247 staff’s predictions — in the comments below this story.
Before we reveal our picks for Week 13, here’s a quick look at last week’s results:

Ryan Callahan 136-112
Wes Rucker 135-113

Without further ado, it’s on with the picks, starting with Tennessee’s regular-season finale at Vanderbilt. It’s scheduled to kick off at 7:30 pm Eastern time Saturday at FirstBank Stadium in Nashville, Tenn., and it will be televised nationally on the SEC Network.
The 10th-ranked Vols (9-2, 5-2 SEC) are coming off a 63-38 loss last week at South Carolina, while the Commodores (5-6, 2-5) are a win away from bowl eligibility after pulling out a 31-24 win over Florida last week. Tennessee has won each of the past three meetings with Vanderbilt, including a 45-21 victory last year in Knoxville.
