An unexpected bye week for some teams, but overall, it’s hard to see where perceptions changed a whole bunch over the weekend, with maybe an exception or two.
- Alabama. Nick Saban’s defense has scored seven touchdowns in six games. Overall, South Carolina has scored nine touchdowns in six games.
- Texas A&M. +4 in turnover margin, your opponent has players dropping like flies and you’re still pushed to double overtime at home? Hmmm.
- Ole Miss. I’m beginning to wonder if I should flip the Aggies and the Rebels here.
- Tennessee. The Vols showed me more in their loss than they have in their five wins.
- LSU. You get the feeling the Tigers are going to milk the postponement by Florida for everything they can get.
- Auburn. Don’t look now, but this is the SEC’s most improved team over the last three weeks.
- Florida. I still haven’t figured out Jeremy Foley’s angle, but, boy, if the Gators finish 6-1 in conference play…
- Arkansas. Exposed. I haven’t seen a more meaningless 400 passing yards in a conference game since the 1985 Georgia-Florida game.
- Georgia. This is a young, talented team trying to figure out how to play. With the East being the way it is, that may still be good enough for a nine-win regular season.
- Mississippi State. If I didn’t know any better, I’d have thought MSU played in the SEC East.
- Missouri. Bet they weren’t expecting Florida to have a bye week, too.
- Kentucky. Back on bowl eligibility track, albeit shakily. Pretty much need to win the next two, though.
- South Carolina. The ‘Cocks have yet to score three touchdowns in a game this season.
- Vanderbilt. With one non-conference game left on the slate, 2016 is looking like another long slog.
