What did we learn Saturday? We learned that Missouri and Florida are real players in the SEC East. The East is up for grabs between Georgia (frontrunner), South Carolina, Florida and Missouri, and it’s going to be tremendous watching this one play out. Alabama remains the team to beat in the SEC West.

Out: Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Tennessee
A couple notes:
- Arkansas drops to the ‘out’ list. The Hogs will likely only be favored in just one remaining game against Mississippi State, and that will be a toss-up.
- Tennessee nearly pulled off the upset against Georgia, and UT is going to have to upset one remaining team on the schedule. With South Carolina, Alabama, Missouri, Auburn, Vanderbilt and Kentucky, do you see three wins? I see a win against Kentucky, and Vanderbilt could go either way. At this point, South Carolina, Auburn and Missouri are better than Tennessee, but I can see the Vols going to a bowl over Arkansas.
