5 biggest SEC games in the last two weeks of the season
Where has the time gone? It’s hard to believe there are just two weeks left in the college football regular season. This Saturday’s schedule features some pivotal games for SEC teams.
Let’s take a closer look at the five biggest SEC games remaining on the schedule:
- Florida vs. Florida State, Nov. 28, 7:30 p.m. — The importance of this game can’t be overstated. No. 8 Florida still has CFB Playoff aspirations and a convincing win over No. 16 Florida State would pad its resume. With a loss, the Gators would be eliminated from Playoff consideration. From an SEC perspective, a Gators loss would make it possible for the conference to be shut out of the Playoff.
- LSU at Ole Miss, Nov. 21, 3:30 p.m. — It wasn’t that long ago that Ole Miss beat Alabama and LSU looked like one of the best teams in college football. A lot has changed since then. But both teams remain ranked in the top 25 and both are competing for a major bowl bid. Both squads are still in contention for the SEC Championship, though they need some help from teams playing Alabama.
- Mississippi State at Arkansas, Nov. 21, 7 p.m. — The Razorbacks continue to impress. Led by Brandon Allen, Arkansas has won three straight, including victories over Ole Miss and LSU. If they beat Mississippi State, they stay on course to finish second in the West.
- Alabama vs. Auburn, Nov. 28, TBD — No matter the records, the Iron Bowl is always a big game. But this year, Auburn likely will have a chance to spoil the Crimson Tide’s Playoff chances. The Tigers have been inconsistent, but should bring their best effort.
- LSU vs. Texas A&M, Nov. 28, 7:30 p.m. – For LSU, this game could have New Year’s Six bowl implications. A Texas A&M victory would give the Aggies an upbeat finish to a roller-coaster season. Regardless, this will be a solid matchup to close out the year.
