SEC Week 9 Preview

Taking a look around at the rest of the SEC.

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Game of the Week

No. 9 Florida (6-1, 4-1 SEC) vs. No. 7 Georgia (6-1, 4-1)

3:30 p.m. (CBS)

A Top-10 World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party matchup is a no-brainer as our pick of the week. (Geez, is Florida really in the top 10 now?) This has all the makings of a classic — it’s not only a heated rivalry, but essentially an elimination game for the Eastern Division championship. Make sure to at least drop in on this one.

Full schedule

Vanderbilt (3-5, 0-4) at Arkansas (2-6, 0-4)

Noon (SECN)

This probably isn’t the way you want to start your day, but here it is anyway. The ‘Dores missed out on an upset of Kentucky last week, while the Hawgs got a confidence boost against Tulsa. I suppose there’s some drama, though: One of these teams will finally notch an SEC win by the end of it. Who will it be??

No. 12 Kentucky (6-1, 4-1) at Missouri (4-3, 0-3)

4 p.m. (SECN)

It’s a shame this one’s on at the same time as Florida-Georgia, because this could be a really entertaining game in its own right. The Tigers are still searching for an SEC win, while the Wildcats are looking to stay alive in the hunt for the East. UK’s 14-7 win over Vandy last week was hardly inspiring, and Mizzou’s offense is usually enough to make things interesting. Can the Cats avoid another upset?

No. 16 Texas A&M (5-2, 3-1) at Mississippi State (4-3, 1-3)

7 p.m. (ESPN)

After tearing through non-conference play to begin the season, the new-look Bulldogs have hit a bit of a wall in the SEC, most recently falling to LSU. A&M, on the other hand, has heated up under Jimbo Fisher and is looking for its fourth straight W. The Aggies haven’t looked invincible, as we know, so this could be intriguing.
