All eyes are on Alabama, again.

GAME OF THE WEEK

Alabama

3:30 p.m. ET

Georgia

CBS

It's not an exaggeration to call this a must-win for the Crimson Tide. Fall here and the Tide will be 0-2 to start off SEC play. That's not a typical path to winning the division, much less the conference or national title. UGA has much more of a cushion with it looking a cut above everyone else in the East. Still, the Bulldogs offense didn't look great against Vanderbilt, which has far and away the best defense they've seen so far. They have something to prove here too, beyond just the résumé boost that comes with beating the Tide.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3

South Carolina

Noon ET

Missouri

SEC Network

With Missouri having no offense and South Carolina having no defense, it's the classic stoppable force meets movable object matchup.

San Jose State

4 p.m. ET

Auburn

SEC Network

After changing quarterbacks last week, Auburn actually gets a chance for a tune up game to get Sean White going.

Ole Miss

7 p.m. ET

Florida

ESPN

The Rebels already have one impressive road win on the year, and the Gators haven't seen anything like the defense they're about to face.

Eastern Michigan

7 p.m. ET

LSU

ESPNU

No one has allowed more rushing yards so far than EMU has, and now it gets to face Leonard Fournette.

Arkansas

7 p.m. ET

Tennessee

ESPN2

This game was supposed to be about which breakout team was breaking out more. Instead, it's about who can salvage something during a disappointing season.

Vanderbilt

7 p.m. ET

Middle Tennessee

CBSSN

This is a true road game at MTSU, but it's being played in a small stadium in the greater Nashville area. It shouldn't seem too foreign.

Miss State

7:30 p.m. ET

Texas A and M

SEC Network

MSU had a near-miss with LSU in its last SEC road game, while A&M is looking for another win over a solid, if unspectacular, opponent.

Eastern Kentucky

7:30 p.m. ET

This should push UK to 4-1, which is never a bad spot to be for the Wildcats.
