Here is the complete SEC football week 3 schedule with game times and TV information now updated with Vegas spreads.
Saturday, September 15th
Louisiana-Monroe at Auburn (-16.5), 12:21 PM ET, SEC Network
ULM continues its SEC West slaying tour as they head to the Plains. Of course we all saw ULM upset Arkansas, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. Auburn has a chance to exact SEC revenge on Saturday.
Presbyterian at Vanderbilt, 12:30 PM ET, CSS
Vanderbilt is off to an 0-2 start and needs a win. They should get it against Presbyterian at home in Nashville this week.
Texas A&M (-13.5) at SMU, 3:30 PM ET, TBD
The Aggies had a great start against Florida and struggled in their second half. Kevin Sumlin looks to get his team back on track against SMU this week.
Alabama (-21.5) at Arkansas, 3:30 PM ET, CBS
In what was going to be the game of the week before the Arkansas upset, Alabama heads into Fayetteville looking to take out a wounded Razorbacks team. QB Tyler Wilson’s status is unknown at this point.
- Alabama vs Arkansas preview
- Saban preparing for three Arkansas QBs
- Arkansas’ defense is the main problem
Florida at Tennessee (-3), 6:00 ET, ESPN
A huge matchup with SEC East implications, Florida heads to Knoxville on Saturday evening. Both Florida and Tennessee are 2-0 and are looking to take a leg up on the other in the race for the SEC East crown. ESPN College GameDay has announced they will be broadcasting from Knoxville this week.
- History says this game is decided by the team that rushes for the most yards
- Florida vs Tennessee preview
- It’s put up or shut up time in Knoxville
- Mike Gillislee is the lifeblood of the Gators’ offense
- Tyler Bray, the real story
- The goal for Tennessee’s running game against Florida
- SEC All-Purpose Animal: Cordarrelle Patterson
UAB at South Carolina (-33.5), 7:00 PM ET, FSN
South Carolina gets another relatively easy matchup before getting back into SEC play. Connor Shaw missed last game and the Gamecocks still rolled. Look for the same against UAB.
Arizona State at Mizzou (-6.5), 7:00 PM ET, ESPN2
Missouri can make a big statement in this matchup against the Pac-12′s Arizona State. The Tigers got their first taste of SEC play against Georgia and now get an opportunity to win one for the conference.
Western Kentucky at Kentucky (-7), 7:00 PM ET, ESPNU
Kentucky looks to build off an impressive win against Kent State by beating Western Kentucky at home.
Mississippi State (-16.5) at Troy, 7:00 PM ET, ESPN3
Dan Mullen has his team paying some good football, and I look for them to play very well against Troy. This Bulldogs team can play on both sides of the ball.
Florida Atlantic at Georgia (-42.5), 7:30 PM ET, CSS
After a huge road game against Mizzou, Georgia gets a cupcake prior to getting back at conference play.
Idaho at LSU (-42.5), 8:00 PM ET, PPV
LSU dominated Washington this past week and Idaho will be even uglier.
Texas (-10.5) at Ole Miss, 9:15PM ET, ESPN
This is quite an intriguing game. Hugh Freeze has his Ole Miss team playing pretty well, and he’s got an opportunity to make an enormous statement with the visiting Texas team. Ole Miss has arguably the toughest schedule in the SEC this year, so getting another win here would be very, very big.
