Georgia looks to crush Vanderbilt in Nashville
After handling the Kentucky Wildcats with ease last week, the Georgia Bulldogs are looking to humble another SEC East foe. This week, the Bulldogs are on the road and are interested in bulldozing the Vanderbilt Commodores. Vandy isn’t all that great (they very rarely are) and the Bulldogs sure seemed to get things going last weekend after experiencing sluggish starts to most of their games this season. Can the Commodores spring an upset? Probably not. Will this game be over by halftime? Almost certainly.
Alabama Crimson Tide hosts struggling Arkansas Razorbacks
After hitting the road to beat the Texas A&M Aggies, the Alabama Crimson Tide are back home in Tuscaloosa and ready to welcome the Arkansas Razorbacks to town. This is a game that should be over relatively quickly as Alabama has shown it can be a stout team and the Razorbacks have been wildly inconsistent. Arkansas is fresh off of yet another frustrating loss and it seems likely that they’ll be reeling. Can they get back on track against one of the best teams in the country? We’ll see.
Auburn and LSU face off in Baton Rouge
We’ve already seen the Auburn Tigers provide a pretty tough test for a rivalry foe. Will we see that happen once more as Auburn takes on the LSU Tigers? So far this season, LSU hasn’t exactly been all that consistent. This is certainly a game that could introduce some very real chaos into the SEC West picture. Brian Kelly and LSU have looked vulnerable when many expected them to boast the best team in the SEC West. Can Hugh Freeze find a way to take advantage of that very sporadic defense?
Texas A&M hits the road to face Tennessee in Neyland
What could be the most intriguing SEC game of the weekend, the Texas A&M Aggies are fresh off of what has to be a frustrating loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide and is set to face off against the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville. Tennessee boasts one of the most exciting and explosive offenses in the SEC and A&M has a sout defensive front. How will that matchup resolve itself and who comes out on top here?
Missouri Tigers look to rebound against Kentucky Wildcats
Last week didn’t go so great for the Kentucky Wildcats and there’s a very real chance that this week gets interesting. The Missouri Tigers are hitting the road to meet up with Kentucky at Kroger field and, like the Wildcats, Mizzou is trying to bounce back from a frustrating win. Can the Tigers get a road win and continue what has been a fascinating season for a team that, prior to a week ago, didn’t seem to know how to lose?
Florida Visits South Carolina in SEC East Clash
Billy Napier and the Florida Gators are 4-2 and have seen some decent wins here and there, but they’ve been rather inconsistent so far this season. And now the Gators are getting to face one of the more intriguing SEC East teams as they take on the South Carolina Gamecocks in Columbia. If USC can keep Spencer Rattler upright, maybe we see the Gators struggle away from home once more. Or, well, maybe Florida gets a much needed win to help release some of the pressure from Napier.
