LAST WEEKEND

LSU obliterated Utah State in an effort to remind the world of College Football that they're really good even when most of the SEC isn't playing. Florida pulled out an impressive, ugly win over Auburn and Georgia just absolutely smited Tennessee.

THREE SUPERSTARS

Joe Burrow, quarterback of LSU; Put another five touchdowns up through the air and rushed for another last weekend as he continues his campaign for Heisman consideration.

The entire defense of Florida: Auburn had been averaging over 30 points a game coming to the swamp and then they turned around and held them scoreless in the second half and to only 13 points for the whole game.

John Rhys Plumlee, running back of Ole Miss, on 22 carries he nailed 165 yards and a touchdown up on the board. Give this kid the rock.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND

This is an obviously huge weekend in college football with great games all over the schedule but two of them happen to come right from the SEC. Texas A&M is hosting Alabama and A&M can't lose another game this season. Florida travels to LSU hot off their win over Auburn and they have a shot at a conference championship lined up directly in their sights with a win here, but LSU sees the same thing in their future.

PLAYERS TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND

Tua Tagovailoa, quarterback of Alabama, this is where Tua needs to sharpen up and start gearing up for this year's playoff run. If Alabama is going to win a National Championship, these are the level of games they'll need to be great in to win.

Joe Burrow, quarterback of LSU, this is an awesome game and it's going to be him or Florida's defense that comes out on top. Who wants it more?

D'Andre Swift, running back of Georgia, for the second week in a row the table is set for this guy to run through a lesser opponent. Yards, yards and touchdowns, keep an eye on the scoreboard for this game.

LAST WEEKEND

Wow, last weekend was crazy right? Texas A&M was only up three coming into the fourth, Missouri and Vandy were tied into the fourth, and South Carolina led against Florida at the top of the fourth; it was a tense weekend. A&M pulled it out obviously to get their season over .500, Vanderbilt went on to win, as did Florida in a really good fourth quarter. Georgia finally got all that bad football out of their system and after being shut out in the first half, scored 21 points in the second half against Kentucky. Here's the real news though, Tua Tagovailoa had a high ankle sprain on the opposite ankle as last year and is now going to miss time to let the ankle heal from surgery. Last year he missed zero games but there was 20 plus days off between his injury in the SEC championship and the first round of the playoffs, it's difficult to gauge how many games he'll miss this time in the middle of a season that now faces actual adversity for Saban's seemingly automatically in the playoffs, usually undefeated, Alabama.

THREE STARS OF LAST WEEKEND

Joe Burrow, Quarterback of LSU, I'm sure by now you know but he was a massive underdog to win the Heisman before the start of the season and is now currently the front runner. That's because he had another great game - 327 yards and another four touchdowns through the air. He's been incredible this season.

Ke'Shawn Vaughn, running back of Vanderbilt, had two of Vandy's three touchdowns, one rushing along with 96 yards and one receiving with 80 yards on 4 catches. Vaughn is the engine that drove Vanderbilt to victory this week.

Kyle Trask, Quarterback of Florida who was efficient with only 200 yards but 4 touchdowns to pull out the come behind win over South Carolina who was stalking another upset.

THIS WEEKEND

My how things have changed in just one week. Last week Missouri was protecting first place in their division and Florida and Georgia were both reeling, now unranked Missouri is going to Kentucky to try and save their season while both the Gators and Bulldogs are ahead of them and off. All the eyes of the SEC and College Football will be on Arkansas at Alabama, to see how Saban's team handles this very real crisis of Quarterback. Also No. 9 Auburn travels to No. 2 LSU, if LSU wins big again and Alabama wins close against an inferior team, does LSU leapfrog them?

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Joe Burrow, quarterback of LSU, for the reasons above. If they have a big game and Burrows continues his Heisman worthy campaign then maybe Alabama falls to No. 2 in both the national rankings and in their own conference.

Mac Jones, quarterback of Alabma, this almost feels unfair but it's such an important game for this kid. Alabama needs him to step up and play, as he is likely to be the guy starting against LSU on Nov. 9, a scant 19 days away.

Bo Nix, Quarterback of Auburn, this is the big showdown this weekend and he needs to recapture some of that early season magic. Auburn is back in the Top Ten and nothing is out of reach now with Tua's injury and LSU on the schedule for Auburn this week and then Alabama playing LSU next week. Winning here and LSU then beating a weakened Alabama makes Auburn and in turn Nix, look amazing.
