11:21 AM CT – No. 15 South Carolina (5-1, 3-1 SEC) at Mississippi State (3-3, 0-3 SEC) – The “post Garcia” era begins for the Gamecocks as they travel to Starkville to take on the Bulldogs who are also dealing with QB issues. Tyler Russell put on a solid performance and could start in place of Chris Relf. South Carolina is now hoping Connor Shaw can come in and get them to the SEC Championship. Expect a lot of carries for Lattimore early on.
2:30 PM CT – No. 1 LSU (6-0, 3-0 SEC) at Tennessee (3-2, 0-2 SEC) – The LSU Tigers look to continue their dominance while the Volunteers will be playing without starting QB Tyler Bray, who is several weeks with a broken thumb. The Vols will start senior QB Matt Simms against a defense that is only allowing 12.5 points per game and a secondary that features one of the SEC’s top players so far in Tyrann “Honey Badger” Mathieu. UT fans hope to get some karma from last year’s controversial loss to LSU – a game in which Simms started.
5:00 PM CT – No. 2 Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC) at Ole Miss (2-3, 0-2 SEC) – Alabama will head to Oxford to take on the struggling Rebels. Getting first downs are going to be tough for the Rebs after losing several players this past week, including RB Brandon Bolden, for breaking “team rules”. Alabama will try and take care of business, knowing that the “Big One” is right around the corner against LSU.
6:00 PM CT Florida (4-2, 2-2 SEC) at No. 24 Auburn (4-2, 2-1 SEC) – Should be an interesting game with true freshmen QB Jacoby Brissett starting for the Gators and freshmen Kiehl Frazier taking more and more reps at QB for Auburn. Florida started the season “on fire” but were exposed against Bama and LSU the last two weeks. Auburn was also dealt a tough loss, last week, against Arkansas. Both will look to rebound and add a 5th win to the record.
6:00 PM CT Georgia (4-2, 3-1 SEC) at Vanderbilt – (3-2, 1-2 SEC) – Mark Richt, and the Dawgs, head to Nashville to take on Vanderbilt in what could be a trap game for Georgia. Vandy has played well defensively against the run and will need to continue if they are going to stop Georgia RB Isaiah Crowell. Georgia will try and continue its surprising run to the top of the East in hopes of getting to Atlanta.
