Ready for the big test: Georgia is 4-0, including 2-0 in SEC play, and quarterback Greyson Lambert has been terrific, completing 33-of-35 passes the past two weeks. But the competition level really steps up Saturday as the Bulldogs host Alabama in one of the marquee games of the weekend.
The streak lives on: Florida beat Tennessee for the 11th straight time in a gift from the Volunteers, who had some questionable coaching decisions and missed a last-second field goal. The Gators host Mississippi on Saturday, while the Volunteers host Arkansas.
Not the beast of the East: Missouri has won the East Division title the past two years, but the Tigers lost their conference opener at Kentucky. Missouri hosts South Carolina on Saturday.
What’s wrong with Auburn?: The Tigers were supposed to be among the nation’s best teams, but they have dropped two straight, including 17-9 to Mississippi State, and their offense has been a mess the entire season. The Tigers host San Jose State on Saturday.
Never miss a local story.
What’s wrong with Arkansas?: The Razorbacks were picked by many to be among the teams to watch this season, but they have lost three straight, including their SEC opener to Texas A&M in overtime.
