GAME OF THE WEEK
Missouri at South Carolina, 7 p.m. ET, ESPN
I'm not sure this is College GameDay-level important (I'd probably have gone Stanford-Washington), but it's another important puzzle piece to the SEC East picture. If Mizzou wins, it'll take a three-game lead over South Carolina in the conference standings thanks to the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Gamecocks probably are in must-win territory for that reason, especially considering that they still have Auburn to go. It's big.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27
Tennessee at Georgia, noon ET, ESPN
Will this simply be another chance for the Vols to pick up a moral victory? Probably. But weird things can happen during noon kicks, so it's worth keeping an eye on. The East is strange this year.
Vanderbilt at Kentucky, noon ET, SEC Network
The Wildcats never beat James Franklin's Commodores. They'll probably have a bit better of a time here.
Arkansas at Texas A&M, 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS
Remember a couple weeks ago when Arkansas traveled to Texas Tech to face an Air Raid team and have the big contrast in styles and all that? Well, imagine that, only the team the Hogs are facing is one of the absolute best in the country. That's this game.
Louisiana Tech at Auburn, 4 p.m. ET, SEC Network
After struggling some with Kansas State last week, Auburn gets to face a team A) from a non-power conference that is B) coached by Skip Holtz, which C) just lost to a I-AA team. Let 'er rip, guys.
Memphis at Ole Miss, 7:30 p.m. ET, FSN/ESPN3
Here's one more tune up for the Rebels before entering a brutal five-game stretch that begins with Alabama next week.
New Mexico State at LSU, 7:30 p.m. ET, SEC Network
It's only NMSU, but expect the LSU quarterbacks' every play and movement to be endlessly dissected.
