This week is the least cupcake-y yet, so we are really getting into the heart of the schedule now. It's about time.
GAME OF THE WEEK
Missouri at South Carolina, 3:30 pm ET, Saturday, CBS
The Battle of Columbias commences with SEC East pecking order position on the line.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
Ole Miss at Tulane, 12:00 pm ET, FSN
The school that always wins the party is going to New Orleans. It should be a hoot.
Kentucky at Florida, 12:21 pm ET, SEC Network
The last time UK kept Florida from scoring at least two first quarter touchdowns was 2006. That streak is likely to continue.
FAU at Alabama, 5:00 pm ET, PPV
Alabama has pitched two consecutive shutouts. Do I hear three?
LSU at Auburn, 7:00 pm ET, ESPN
The Bayou Bengals often struggle on the Plains, but I can't imagine too many issues this time around.
Rutgers at Arkansas, 7:00 pm ET, ESPNU
If the Razorbacks are going to pick themselves up off the mat, doing so before losing to a Big East team would be preferable.
South Carolina State at Texas A&M, 7:00 pm ET, FSN
Look at the Aggies getting into the swing of things here in the SEC.
South Alabama at Mississippi State, 7:00 pm ET, PPV
The one occasion when it's OK not to like people chanting, "U-S-A! U-S-A!"
Akron at Tennessee, 7:30 pm ET, CSS
Nothing like a team that has lost to FIU to get your frustrations out against.
Vanderbilt at Georgia, 7:45 pm ET, ESPN2
This is Vandy's second big SEC test to see just how for real or not they are, and it's a chance for Georgia to make another big statement about who owns the East.
