Arkansas’ matchup with Notre Dame is obviously inconsequential from an SEC standpoint, but the Hogs can vault their record up further and earn themselves a series win over the Fighting Irish after Saturday’s doubleheader was split.
Elsewhere though, there’s plenty more to be had. After they clinched the SEC Championship on Saturday, Florida is back in action again against Tennessee as they look to keep the Vols in a spiral. The Vols have already tumbled down to fourth in the league - having lost their last three - after sitting at second not too long ago. A loss can’t send them anywhere further down the ladder given the two-game gap between them and Alabama, but it can certainly put them in a precarious position.
Texas A&M-Kentucky follows the same protocol. A loss for the Aggies could put them only a game up on Auburn and Tennessee (results pending) but there’s far too sizable a gap between the two teams for this to directly affect them both with regards to this matchup. Kentucky can fall to a meager 10-11 mark in conference with a loss, and the Aggies likely relish that idea.
Speaking of Auburn, the Tigers battle Mississippi State that could affect their standing if they lose. The Tigers are tied in the loss column with Tennessee and if the Vols were to pick up a win over Florida, then Auburn would tumble down to fourth with a loss to the Bulldogs. State can’t do much but drop to a tie in the loss column with rival ole Miss. At 8-12, they’re far too behind Kentucky and LSU to make any kind of movement with a victory on Sunday.
Finally, South Carolina and Georgia do battle in a matchup featuring the two teams who sit at the bottom of the SEC. A victory for South Carolina would send Georgia down to 4-17 in SEC play while a win for the Bulldogs sends the Gamecocks down to 5-15 in the SEC. No matter what comes of this matchup however, these two will remain where they’re at in the standings heading into the final week of the season.
