A look at this weekend's SEC action.
Friday, November 9, 2012
Now comes another type of test for No. 1 Alabama. After last Saturday's come-from-behind victory over LSU at Baton Rouge, the Crimson Tide will have to deal with a possible letdown when No. 15 Texas A&M comes to Tuscaloosa (game time: 3:30 p.m., CBS). The game carries huge implications for the SEC. Alabama (6-0 in SEC) still must win Saturday and later this year vs. Auburn to be assured of the SEC West title. An A&M win Saturday and later vs. Missouri could give the SEC West title to the Aggies (4-2 in SEC). This week, Alabama will have to deal with an A&M spread offense that is averaging 251 yards rushing (first in SEC) and 308 yards per game (second in SEC) passing. Also, the Aggies are averaging scoring 44 points per game. -- Who do you…

Checking this weekend's football action.
Talk about Murderer's Row. The South Carolina Gamecocks (6-1, 4-1) will continue to test some top SEC competition Saturday when they travel to Gainesville, Fla., to test the Florida Gators. (Game time: 3:30 p.m., CBS). Just two weeks ago, the Gamecocks trounced then-No. 5 Georgia, 35-7. Last Saturday, Steve Spurrier's crew came close but fell 23-21 to now-No. 6 LSU. Now come the No. 3 (in AP) Gators, who bested LSU two weeks ago. -- Do you think South Carolina will defeat Florida? Tell us how the SEC will shake out this week in the comments below. UGA still has to face Florida (6-0, 5-0), so a Gators victory Saturday would help any chances the Bulldogs might have of an SEC East title. That would give the Gamecocks two SEC losses, and …

Taking a look at the Southeastern Conference football schedule for Sept. 15.
It may not have the appeal of the 1990s, when Steve Spurrier and Phillip Fulmer patrolled the sidelines for Florida and Tennessee. But this Saturday's Gators-Vols game in Knoxville can claim to be the top SEC matchup of the weekend. And there's still a bit of coaching intrigue. Will Muschamp (Florida) and Derek Dooley (Tennessee) both were assistant coaches under Nick Saban at LSU. So we'll see who gets bragging rights for the next year. -- How will your favorite SEC team fare this weekend? Tell us in the comments below. The teams are ranked in the Top 25 (Florida 18th, Tennessee 23rd), and both are on Georgia's schedule later in the year. So stay tuned. Speaking of the Bulldogs, they are sitting at No. 7 (AP) after last week's 41-20 win …
