In the spirit of social media, we look to condense the past weekend's SEC action...Twitter style.

#3 Alabama: Tide solid against Badgers. Derrick Henry stellar, Jake Coker OK in debut. Middle Tennessee next week should be cakewalk at Bryant-Denny.

#6 Auburn: Muschamp D strong early on. Thank goodness for them, because this one got scary for Tigers late. And what was Bobby Petrino thinking?

#9 Georgia: UL Monroe? No problem for Dawgs BTH. Chubb, Marshall 2 TDs a piece. QBs weren't great, but didn't need to be. Should roll past Vandy.

#14 LSU: Weather delay wiped out Tigers' opener. No makeup. Good for McNeese State, because they didn't stand a chance. They leave 500K richer.

#17 Ole Miss: UT Martin clobbered by Rebs. Wait: they just scored again. Chad Kelly: 2 passing TDs, 1 rushing. Better than Uncle Jim? Too early to tell.

#18 Arkansas: Brandon Allen: 14/18, 308, 4 TDs. Keon Hatcher: 6 for 106, 2 TDs. Enjoy the seniors while you can. Easy win for Hogs in Fayetteville. #WPS

#24 Missouri: Pinkel looking for another #SECEast crown. Good start against SE Mo St. in other Columbia. Mauk 2 TD passes more than enough for Tigers.

#25 Tennessee: This one was interesting, but Butch and #Vols turn it on in 2nd half. Kamara/Hurd force to be reckoned with. Big one against Sooners on Sat.

Texas A&M: #aTm pulls off upset at Jerry World. Kyle Allen took a while to find his legs. Kirk brings punt back for TD, rec. TD later. The game's MVP.

Florida: McIlwain 1-0 with Gators. They won't all be this easy. At least #NMSU got paid to get beat. How will UF do against ECU on Saturday?

Mississippi State: Southern Miss came ready to play. Definitely tougher than last year. Dak still the straw that stirs the drink. #LSU won't play around.

South Carolina: Ugly throughout, but Gamecocks take the W. Connor Mitch struggled, not great in debut. Revenge against #BBN coming on Saturday? We'll see.

Vanderbilt: Offense nowhere to be found. Failed 2 pointer for 'Dores and they lose in final minute. Rough start to year two for Mason. #LOLVandy

Kentucky: Close call against a #FunBelt team. Sign of things to come or just first game jitters? Have to be better against #Gamecocks on Saturday.
