Around the SEC West: More of the Same

#2 Alabama 5-0 (2-0 SEC)

Ho hum. Alabama beat Florida 38-10. The Crimson Tide defense held Florida to fifteen rushing yards on twenty-nine carries. Yeah. I didn't write that wrong. Alabama's offense continued to thunder along with 226 rushing yards on a 5.3 yard per carry average. Mark your calendars for November 5th. That's when Bama takes on LSU. Epic. This Saturday, Alabama decimates Vanderbilt at 6 PM CT on ESPNU. Watch it if you like that video of the girl hurling puppies into a shallow river.

#10 Arkansas 4-1 (0-1 SEC)

The Razorbacks won a stellar, comeback victory over the soon-to-join-this-column Texas A&M Aggies wih a 42-38 score. If you didn't watch, you missed out. The Aggies were up 35-17 at the half and looked to be cruising. Then Tyler Wilson came alive for a school record 510 yards passing. Wilson played a great game, but the story of the night was the Arkansas defense who forced two turnovers to A&M's zero. When first-year starters throw 51 passes against a strong defense and don't turn the ball over once, they're sure to be something special. Wilson, a junior, is going to be a force at Arkansas. The Razorbacks play against Auburn in Fayetteville this Saturday at 6 on ESPN. This is the matchup to watch this weekend. 

#15 Auburn 4-1 (2-0 SEC)

Auburn did just enough to pull an upset of the South Carolina Gamecocks and continue SEC West dominance with a 16-13 win. The Tiger defense forced Stephen Garcia to a 9/23 line with two interceptions. Even with such a dominant performance at stopping the pass, they were able to hold Marcus Lattimore to just 3.9 yards per carry. The offense was mediocre but got the job done on the last drive of the game, scoring the go ahead touchdown. Auburn is surprising a lot of people this year, and they've got a shot at something good when they travel to Fayetteville this weekend.

LSU 5-0 (2-0 SEC)

In comedic fashion, LSU beat the Wildcats 35-7. By comedic fashion I mean that QB Jarrett Lee completed just eight of his twenty-one attempts on the night, but the Tigers still had no trouble with Kentucky. Felon Misdemean QB Jordan Jefferson returned to the team and carried the ball four times with twenty-nine yards and a touchdown. The Jefferson-Lee dynamic is one on which to keep an eye. The LSU defense continued on their quest to single-handedly win a national championship by allowing just sixty-six yards through the air.... in a game they were winning from the start. LSU plays #17 Florida this Saturday in the 2:30 time slot on CBS in what is sure to be.... a blowout win for the Tigers.

MSU 2-3 (0-3 SEC)

Lolocaust. Roflcopter. State lost to UGA by the same margin we did. MSU has to win this weekend to have any hope of winning more than six games. This season has been awesome for them. They play South Carolina at 11:00 on the SEC Network. Watch their linebackers try to stop Marcus Lattimore. Laugh.
