GAME OF THE WEEK
Auburn at Ole Miss, Saturday, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
Another week, another matchup of top five SEC West teams. Ole Miss has to bounce back quickly from last week's heartbreaker, but it has the best defense Auburn will have played yet. It should be another showcase game for the conference. OK, fine. For the division.
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1
UL-Monroe at Texas A&M, noon ET, SEC Network
The Aggies are wearing great throwback uniforms and have a QB controversy brewing.
Florida vs. Georgia, 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS
If I wanted to try to make a case for a Florida win, I would bring up that Will Muschamp is (somehow) still coaching for his job, and the new starting quarterback Treon Harris could be a surprise, and the team might rally around Harris, and the defense is still really good. But Georgia is the better team all around even without Todd Gurley.
Kentucky at Missouri, 4 p.m. ET, SEC Network
I don't know why, but it feels like this is about the third time this year that this game is being played. The middle of the East is that similar and forgettable, I guess.
Old Dominion at Vanderbilt, 7 p.m. ET, ESPNU
To answer your only possible questions: yes, ODU is on the I-A level now, and no, this is not a guaranteed win for the 'Dores.
Arkansas at Mississippi State, 7:15 p.m. ET, ESPN2
If any game this year ends in two hours or less, it'll be this one.
Tennessee at South Carolina, 7:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network
It's a thoroughly stoppable force (Tennessee's offense) against an immensely movable object (South Carolina's defense). No way this one isn't bananas somehow by the end.
