There’s plenty at stake in the final SEC regular-season weekend. Kentucky can become the 13th bowl-eligible team from the conference. Florida is trying desperately to bring down Florida State’s reign of terror. The Iron Bowl and Egg Bowl feature College Football Playoff hopefuls. And the Arkansas-Missouri game will determine the SEC East winner.

We decided to debate and rank the meaning of it all.

Which SEC team has the most to a) gain this week and b) lose this week?

John Cooper (@JonSDS): Mississippi State, Alabama

College Football Playoff spots are up for grabs during rivalry week. One-loss Mississippi State has to escape the Egg Bowl in Oxford, while Alabama has the most pressure to stay the No. 1 team in the playoff ranking against Auburn. With an Alabama loss and MSU win, the Bulldogs will roll into Atlanta for the SEC Championship, while a win by the Crimson Tide punches their ticket. All bets are off in Atlanta against Missouri or Georgia, but the West will be a heavy favorite.

The Tigers’ season is on the line this Friday when they take on the surging Arkansas Razorbacks in the regular season finale for both teams. Mizzou has the most to gain because a win would cement an unlikely second straight SEC East title in just its third year in the conference. Mizzou also has the most to lose because a loss would drop the Tigers to 9-3 on the year, which is a rather forgettable record considering one of those losses came at home to Indiana. The result of this game will decide whether Missouri is an elite team in an elite conference or just a middle of the pack team that found a way to win a few ugly games during a modest regular season run.

Mississippi State has the most to gain as this will be its final opportunity to impress the selection committee, and needs to leave a lasting impression. Alabama has the most to lose — a shot at the SEC and national titles.

Brad Crawford (@BCrawfordSDS): Georgia, Alabama

Georgia has the most to gain this week with a Missouri loss to Arkansas and Alabama has the most to lose with an Iron Bowl setback to Auburn. Outside of a loss to Florida in Jacksonville, the Bulldogs have looked like the Eastern Division’s most complete team this season … until Missouri started its current five-game winning streak including an impressive 10th consecutive road win Saturday night at Tennessee. Alabama’s College Football Playoff hopes are likely smashed with a loss to Auburn and I’m not sure Nick Saban could stomach back-to-back losses in the series.

The Rebels have fallen off hard after rising to No. 3 in the country, but Hugh Freeze and his team can salvage the season with a win over their rivals. Beating Mississippi State would give the Rebels their first 9-win season since 2009, end the Bulldogs playoff hopes and boost Ole Miss back up to the top 10. Everyone has been doubting the Tigers all season, and they have indeed looked awful in some big moments (Georgia) and dropped the ball in a non-conference tilt (Indiana) that had folks around the country snickering. Mizzou is right on the edge of a second straight SEC East title, and they’d silence all of their doubters if they beat Arkansas on Friday. Lose and they’re exactly who the skeptics thought they were.

The Bulldogs will remain in the top four with a victory over Ole Miss. But a loss will put Mississippi State out of contention. The Bulldogs’ surprise season will be forgotten without a playoff berth and the Rebels will be ready to play spoiler to their arch rivals.

Jordan Cox (@Jordan_Cox): Auburn, Missouri

The Tigers sit at No. 14 in the College Football Playoff Top 25, the highest-ranked three-loss team. Gus Malzahn’s team faces No. 1 Alabama, with the Crimson Tide looking to lock up the SEC West and earn a trip to Atlanta. With a win on Saturday night, the Tigers have a good chance at a 10-win season and a berth in a New Year’s Six bowl. Nick Marshall and company still have a lot to play for. Mizzou now is one win away from its second straight SEC East title and a return trip to the Georgia Dome. The Tigers keep surviving, but face a confident Arkansas team on Friday afternoon in the new Battle Line Rivalry. Perception around Bret Bielema’s Razorbacks team has completely changed during the past two weeks and the Hogs present a matchup challenge to Maty Mauk and the Tigers. It’s win and you’re in for Mizzou, lose and Georgia goes to Atlanta.

Drew Laing (@DLaingSDS): Alabama, Mississippi State

With a win this week, the Crimson Tide clinch a bid for the SEC Championship, regain bragging rights over Auburn in the Iron Bowl and keep hopes of a CFP berth alive as well. All season long, Bama has been probably the most complete team and the one squad expected to be in this position at the end of the year. It all comes down to this weekend. The Bulldogs shocked everyone this season by just how dominant they’ve been in games. They were ranked No. 1 for most of the season before suffering a five-point loss to Bama on the road. MSU still is in the top 4, but this weekend’s game could be disastrous for the Bulldogs if it goes poorly. A loss not only officially knocks them out of SEC Championship consideration, but also wrecks any CFP hopes. Despite how successful the season as a whole has been for MSU, a season-ending loss to Ole Miss and what that would mean for MSU would leave a sour taste in the mouths of fans.
