There’s nothing like rivalry week in the SEC.
There is a different feeling in the air. No matter what the record is of either team entering the game, anyone has the chance to win.
Arkansas was supposed to be the last team Missouri played this season, but after a win, the Tigers are going bowling. South Carolina didn’t need to beat Clemson to get into a bowl game, but a win over the Tigers on the road for the first time since 2000 doesn’t hurt how they feel at all.

The Missouri Tigers are going bowling! After a regular season full of what-ifs, Brady Cook and the Tigers took down Arkansas at home to get their sixth win and secure a spot in a bowl game. This Tiger team is better than their record indicates. They are about five plays away from being one of the best teams in the SEC.

For the first time since 2017, the Florida State Seminoles have defeated the Florida Gators. In the highest-scoring game in series history, Jordan Travis made a lot of plays with his legs and the Seminole defense stood strong when they needed to the most. The Gators finish their first regular season under Billy Napier 6-6.

Beamer ball. The Gamecocks last two wins have come against two teams ranked in the top ten (Tennessee and Clemson). The win knocks Clemson out of the college football playoff picture. This is the first time Carolina has won at Clemson since 2000.

Will Levis and Chris Rodriguez both had a spectacular day as the Kentucky Wildcats took care of business against the Louisville Cardinals. A nice bounce-back win for Kentucky after dropping their last two games to Vanderbilt and Georgia.

The Iron Bowl. It’s the best rivalry game in college football. It doesn’t matter what each team’s record is going into the game, anyone has a chance to win. In what could be Bryce Young and Will Anderson’s last game in Bryant Denny Stadium, the Tide knocked off Cadillac Williams and the Auburn Tigers 49-27. Now Alabama will wait and see if they can sneak into the CFP.
Texas A&M 38, No. 5 LSU 23

No Hendon Hooker, no problem. The Tennessee Volunteers smoked the Vanderbilt Commodores 56-0. Vandy was riding high after two-straight SEC wins, but the Vols brought them back down to earth.
