Florida, Auburn Take Division Leads Into Friday

Florida 3, South Carolina 2
The Gators take a one-game lead in the race for the SEC regular-season title into the final two games, making Friday's game an elimination bout. The Thursday game came down to pitching, with four Florida pitchers helping to hand Sam Dyson Blake Cooper his first loss of the year. Dyson Cooper didn't pitch poorly, allowing 3 runs in 6.2 innings. A tough way to lose an undefeated year.

Auburn 5, Ole Miss 3
Vanderbilt 4, Arkansas 3
Drew Pomeranz couldn't record an out in the eighth inning before two men were on, so Ole Miss turned to Brett Huber, who pitched what became a three-run homer off the bat of Auburn's Kevin Patterson. The win ensured a one-game lead in the SEC West for the Tigers; a win Friday will clinch the division. Arkansas' loss in a rain-delayed game in Nashville meant another loss or an Auburn win will eliminate the Hogs.

RACE FOR EIGHT
Alabama 11, Tennessee 3
Georgia 8, Kentucky 6
LSU 14, Mississippi State 13
Alabama's win against Tennessee and LSU's victory in a slugfest with Mississippi State gave them each a one-game edge on getting into Hoover. Georgia broke a 13-game SEC losing streak, making a convincing case that Kentucky should not be allowed to play in Hoover regardless of what the standings say.
