Around the SEC West: Week Four Recap, Week Five Preview

It looks like Les is laughing at Gus. - Chris Graythen

How did the rest of Ole Miss' division do?

#1 Alabama Crimson Tide - Alabama looked rather listless in a 31-6 win over Colorado State. That statement right there shows you just how much we all expect out of Alabama under Nick Saban, but the fact remains that, last weekend, they only managed 338 total yards of offense. Only 66 of those were on the ground, despite Alabama rushing on 21 attempts. The Tide didn't really get much of a push against the Rams, it seems. Still, it's tough to believe that such will be any indicator of future successes or failures this weekend when Alabama faces our Ole Miss Rebels in Tuscaloosa.

Arkansas Razorbacks - For the first time in a long time, Arkansas did not have a rusher eclipse 100 yards. Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams, who have been putting up some of the best rushing numbers in the conference thus far, combined for only 88 yards on the ground. Despite that, Arkansas had a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, before yielding two straight Rutgers touchdowns en route to a 28-24 loss. The Razorbacks will host the Aggies this week, which will actually allow their rushing game to shine, as A&M's defensive front is one of the conference's worst. That said, they'll lose by 20-ish.

Auburn Tigers and #6 LSU Tigers - Whoever said it doesn't rain in Death Valley is a damn liar, because it did, and it provided for a sloppy, sloppy game in favor of LSU, 35-21. Auburn did not score at all in the first half, while LSU built a 21 point advantage going into the break. This isn't because they weren't able to move the ball (they were just 20 total yards shy of LSU's total) but rather due to turnovers. That, and LSU's receiver talent is just unreal. And Jeremy Hill rushed for just over 180 yards and three scores. Auburn gets a bye before playing our Rebs, and LSU will play Georgia in Athens this weekend.

Mississippi State Bulldogs - State beat Troy by a score of 62-7. Nobody noticed. Here's a fun fact: Dak Prescott and Jameon Lewis each threw, caught, and rushed for a touchdown in the game. State gets a bye before playing LSU.

#10 Texas A&M Aggies - Remember when Texas A&M vs. SMU used to mean something? Yeah, neither do I. The Aggies unsurprisingly beat the Mustangs 48-12 by a lot to a little, and Johnny Manziel unsurprisingly racked up 346 offensive yards and three touchdowns, numbers which are rather pedestrian considering the opponent and what we've seen out of Manziel in the past. The Aggies travel to Fayetteville to take on the Hogs at 6:00 PM this Saturday.
