What a week in the SEC. The carnage was very real as A&M fell to Mississippi St, Alabama fell to Ole Miss, and South Carolina fell to lowly Kentucky (looking at you Jonathan).
Now it seems like the South Carolina game is no longer a good barometer for the Aggies. And if the Gamecocks weren’t already out of the hunt, they are now. I don’t think anyone expected them to have 3 losses by the first weekend in October.
The East could effectively be decided this weekend as #13 Georgia plays at #23 Missouri. Missouri is undefeated in SEC play while Georgia somehow has a loss to aforementioned South Carolina. Again, the carnage is very real. Meanwhile the race in the SEC West is far from over. Three teams remain undefeated while Texas A&M and Alabama only have one loss. It seems that LSU and Arkansas are most likely out of the running, but everyone else is still very much in it. This weekend brings another set of highly anticipated matchups.
#2 Auburn at #3 Mississippi St
#3 Ole Miss at #14 Texas A&M
#7 Alabama at Arkansas
The winner of the Auburn/Mississippi St game will control their own destiny to the SEC Championship game. Texas A&M is given a big opportunity to rebound against a red hot Ole Miss team. And we might finally have a good idea just how good Arkansas is as they face the Bama juggernaut.
Top (1-4): Auburn, Mississippi St, Ole Miss, Alabama
Middle (5-9): Texas A&M, Georgia, Missouri, Arkansas, LSU
Bottom (10-14): Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt
