SEC top five

1. It has to be Georgia, right? The Bulldogs had the most impressive performance of the weekend by wearing down Clemson on Saturday night after the Tigers controlled the first half. And the Bulldogs get two weeks to prepare for South Carolina in their SEC opener.

2. Speaking of the Gamecocks: They got to see the second most impressive team in person Thursday night when they were blown out by Texas A&M. The Aggies proved they have more than just Johnny Manziel, and this year's group will be 2-0 after hosting Lamar this week.

3. Needing Marshall: Auburn was tied with Arkansas in the first half without Nick Marshall on Saturday. But when Marshall came in, the Tigers picked up their play and pulled away. Auburn hosts San Jose State this week.

4. SEC opener: Mississippi hits the road Saturday to take on Vanderbilt, which was blown out last week by Temple.

5. Not much else to see: That's about it. The rest of the schedule is pretty bad: Arkansas State at Tennessee, Missouri at Toledo, Florida Atlantic at Alabama, UAB at Mississippi State, Ohio at Kentucky, Eastern Michigan at Florida, Nicholls State at Arkansas, East Carolina at South Carolina and Sam Houston State at LSU.
