Game of the Week

#3 Georgia (7-0, 4-0 SEC) vs Florida (3-3, 3-2 SEC) in Jacksonville

Saturday 10/28, 3:30 PM, CBS

Florida had a good (if fluky) 3-0 start to conference play before losing to LSU and Texas A&M. But thanks to an especially weak year for the SEC East, the Gators are still tied for second in the division. If they want a decent chance of winning it they’ll probably need to take down the Bulldogs. That won’t be easy, as Georgia has been rolling through their schedule with ease and is favored over the Gators by a couple of scores.

Full Schedule

Arkansas (2-5, 0-4 SEC) at Ole Miss (3-4, 1-3 SEC)

Saturday 10/28, 12:00 PM, SEC Network

Neither of these teams is still in the mix for the SEC West, so this game doesn’t really have larger implications, but both the Rebels and the Hogs desperately need a win.

Vanderbilt (3-4, 0-4 SEC) at South Carolina (5-2, 3-2 SEC)

Saturday 10/28, 4:00 PM, SEC Network

The Gamecocks are home favorites as they try to build off the momentum from winning their last two games, while the Commodores are still looking for their first SEC win of the season.

Missouri (2-5, 0-4 SEC) at UConn (3-4)

Saturday 10/28, 6:30 PM, CBS Sports Network

The Tigers finally got back in the win column against Idaho last week and they’ll try to keep it going as favorites at UConn.

Mississippi State (5-2, 2-2 SEC) at Texas A&M (5-2, 3-1 SEC)

Saturday 10/28, 7:15 PM, ESPN

The Aggies have played a lot of close SEC games this season and their matchup with the Bulldogs is expected to be another one.

Tennessee (3-4, 0-4 SEC) at Kentucky (5-2, 2-2 SEC)

Saturday 10/28, 7:30 PM, SEC Network

The Vols are still looking for their first conference win of the season but the Wildcats are hoping to hold them off and stay in the mix for the SEC East title.
