Game of the Week

#1 Alabama (11-0, 7-0 SEC) at #6 Auburn (9-2, 6-1)

Saturday 11/25, 3:30 PM, CBS

The Tide is the top team in the country right now and the only thing standing between them and a perfect regular season is Auburn. The Tigers lost early to Clemson and stumbled against LSU, but they’re on a four-game winning streak that includes a beatdown of a great Georgia team. The winner of this game plays for the SEC Championship and possibly a spot in the CFB Playoff. There’s nothing better than a rivalry game with high stakes, and the Iron Bowl should deliver on the hype this year.

Full Schedule

Ole Miss (5-6, 2-5 SEC) at #14 Mississippi State (8-3, 4-3 SEC)

Thursday 11/23, 7:30 PM, ESPN

The Egg Bowl doesn’t look like it’ll be too competitive given how each team’s season has gone, but there’s more than enough bad blood in this rivalry right now to make this an interesting game anyway.

Missouri (6-5, 3-4 SEC) at Arkansas (4-7, 1-6 SEC)

Friday 11/24, 2:30 PM, CBS

The Tigers have reeled off three straight SEC wins after beginning conference play 0-4 and they’ll try to finish the regular season off with a win against SEC West rival Arkansas.

#7 Georgia (10-1, 7-1 SEC) at Georgia Tech (5-5)

Saturday 11/25, 12:00 PM, ABC

The Bulldogs are still in the conversation for a Playoff spot, but they need a win against their rivals before they can worry about the SEC Championship Game.

Florida State (4-6) at Florida (4-6, 3-5 SEC)

Saturday 11/25, 12:00 PM, ESPN

The Gators will try to wrap up an underwhelming season with a win against a rival that also had a hugely disappointing season.

Louisville (7-4) at Kentucky (7-4, 4-4 SEC)

Saturday 11/25, 12:00 PM, SEC Network

The Wildcats are a decent team, but a rivalry win would be an upset as they’re home underdogs to the Cardinals.

Vanderbilt (4-7, 0-7 SEC) at Tennessee (4-7, 0-7 SEC)

Saturday 11/25, 4:00 PM, SEC Network

In possibly the most hilarious saddest rivalry game of the weekend, the Commodores and the Vols will play to determine who finishes last in the SEC and who gets to end the season with one entire conference win of their very own.

#3 Clemson (10-1) at #24 South Carolina (8-3, 5-3 SEC)

Saturday 11/25, 7:30 PM, ESPN

The Gamecocks are home underdogs for this year’s rivalry game, but the Tigers are beatable and Carolina will be looking to pull off the upset.

Texas A&M (7-4, 4-3 SEC) at #18 LSU (8-3, 5-2 SEC)

Saturday 11/25, 7:30 PM, SEC Network

The Aggies and the Tigers have each had a chaotic year and both teams could really use a win to wrap up the regular season.
