THE SEC wasn't too busy this week although A&M and Arkansas had themselves a slug fest in Jerry World. Alabama's defense continues to let inferior teams score points in bunches which is going to be a concern come SEC championship time and playoff weekends. Florida seems to have righted the ship completely and is sitting pretty in the top 10 for the first time in a while.
THE THREE STARS OF LAST WEEKEND
Tua Tagovailoa, quarterback, Alabama, had 7 total touchdowns last weekend. I'd say that's a good game, it's incredible the numbers some of these quarterbacks are putting up these days.
Kellen Mond, quarterback, Texas A&M, the offense felt inconsistent but he was able to overcome that and finish the game the right way and win a hard fought game, excellent job.
Ke'Shawn Vaughn, running back, Vanderbilt, got himself 138 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries and Vandy needed all of them to pull out a tight win against Northern Illinois.
On the upcoming slate of games there's a couple things to watch but most notably Auburn coming to Florida for a battle of the top tens, is this where Nix's run of magic ends? Missouri hosts Troy in what should be a nice undercard fight and Vanderbilt comes to Ole Miss for a great game.
PLAYERS TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND
Joe Burrow, quarterback, LSU, if you're playing college fantasy football Burrow is the points generator you dream of in the middle rounds and this week will probably be a three quarter example of why.
Larry Rountree III, running back, Missouri, the recipe for hard wins is run the ball and play defense so expect big numbers from Rountree.
D'Andre Swift, running back, Georgia, the bulldogs are on the road to Knoxville and Swift has to be hoping for about 15 great carries because the Volunteers aren't exactly stopping people these days.
