SEC Week 6 Preview

This week is full of conference games but short on compelling matchups

NCAA Football:  Florida at Louisiana State Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Game of the Week

LSU (3-2, 0-1 SEC) at #21 Florida (3-1, 3-0 SEC)

Saturday 10/7, 3:30 PM, CBS

Florida has won three SEC games since beginning their season with a loss to Michigan, while LSU was blown out in their lone SEC game so far and is coming off of a loss to Troy. But Florida hasn’t looked dominant and is barely favored and this one feels like it could go in either direction. To add to the atmosphere, there’s a little more bad blood than usual between these schools after last season’s weather-related scheduling fight.

Full Schedule

#5 Georgia (5-0, 2-0 SEC) at Vanderbilt (3-2, 0-2 SEC)

Saturday 10/7, 12:00 PM, ESPN

Georgia looked dominant in their first two conference games and they’re likely to continue that trend against a Vandy team that hasn’t looked as good in SEC play as their hot start to the season indicated.

Ole Miss (2-2, 0-1 SEC) at #12 Auburn (4-1, 2-0 SEC)

Saturday 10/7, 12:00 PM, SEC Network

The Rebels were steamrolled by Alabama last week and things don’t look much better this Saturday as they take on a hot Auburn team.

Arkansas (2-2, 0-1 SEC) at South Carolina (3-2, 1-2 SEC)

Saturday 10/7, 4:00 PM, SEC Network

The Gamecocks have a little bit of an edge since they’re the home team, but this should be a close one between two teams that could both really use a win.

#1 Alabama (5-0, 2-0 SEC) at Texas A&M (4-1, 2-0 SEC)

Saturday 10/7, 7:15 PM, ESPN

This seems like it should be a big game since it features two SEC West teams that are undefeated in conference play. But Alabama’s SEC wins came via demolishing Vandy and Ole Miss in consecutive weeks, while Texas A&M barely squeaked by Arkansas and South Carolina. This is probably not going to be pretty.

Missouri (1-3, 0-2 SEC) at Kentucky (4-1, 1-1 SEC)

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

This probably won’t be as ugly for the Tigers as last week’s game against Auburn was, but things still don’t look great for a struggling Mizzou team.
