Game of the Week

Kentucky (7-3, 4-3 SEC) at #7 Georgia (9-1, 6-1 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 3:30 PM, CBS

Georgia was exposed as mortal last week when Auburn handed them their first loss of the season, but they’re still in the playoff picture so this game is still a big one. The Bulldogs need to avoid another slip-up against a Kentucky team that’s had a surprisingly good season. The Wildcats are big underdogs, but if they can pull off an upset they’ll finish tied for second place in the SEC East.

Full Schedule

Mercer (5-5) at #1 Alabama (10-0, 7-0 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 12:00 PM, SEC Network

The Tide basically has a bye against a mediocre Mercer team as they prepare for a huge Iron Bowl next weekend.

UL Monroe (4-5) at #6 Auburn (8-2, 6-1 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 12:00 PM, ESPN2

The Tigers are coming off of a big win over Georgia and are probably looking ahead to the Iron Bowl while they host UL Monroe.

#16 Mississippi State (7-3, 3-3 SEC) at Arkansas (4-6, 1-5 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 12:00 PM, CBS

The Bulldogs came close to upsetting Bama last weekend, but couldn’t quite pull it off. They’ll try to finish the season strong in their two remaining conference games, beginning with the Hogs this weekend.

Wofford (9-1) at South Carolina (7-3, 5-3 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 4:00 PM, SEC Network

The Gamecocks host the Terriers in what is supposed to be a nice little FCS tune-up before rivalry weekend but will almost certainly be an extremely stressful experience for everyone involved.

UAB (7-3) at Florida (3-6, 3-5 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 4:00 PM, SEC Network

The Gators shouldn’t lose to the Blazers, but things have been pretty ugly for them over the last several weeks and anything is possible.

#20 LSU (7-3, 4-2 SEC) at Tennessee (4-6, 0-6 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 7:00 PM, ESPN

The Vols finally parted ways with Butch Jones after getting blown out by Missouri. They’re not likely to fare well this week either as they host an LSU team that’s looked good over the last month.

Texas A&M (6-4, 3-3 SEC) at Ole Miss (5-4, 2-4 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 7:00 PM, ESPN2

Both the Aggies and the Rebels are coming off of non-conference wins and the Rebels are barely favored in what should be an entertaining game.

Missouri (5-5, 2-4 SEC) at Vanderbilt (4-6, 0-6 SEC)

Saturday 11/18, 7:30 PM, SEC Network

After an awful start to the season, the Tigers are on a winning streak that includes big wins over Florida and Tennessee. They’ll try to keep the fun going against a Vandy team that has only managed one win since starting the season 3-0.
