SEC lunchtime links
- Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall's breakout season is the result of a second chance to shine in the SEC after the first one went by the wayside while he was at Georgia. After past mistakes, Marshall has shown much more maturity to help him reach this point.
- Alabama isn't certain which of Oklahoma's two quarterbacks it will see -- Trevor Knight or Blake Bell -- in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Before leaving for New Orleans, safety Landon Collins said they've only looked at one so far.
- Texas A&M got its first look at the Georgia Dome during a practice there ahead of the Chick-fil-A Bowl and discussed the transition to new offensive coordinator Jake Spavital.
- Georgia coach Mark Richt isn't elaborating on the suspensions of Sheldon Dawson and Josh Harvey-Clemons for the Gator Bowl.
- Ole Miss backup quarterback Barry Brunetti has had an interesting and, at times, strange journey during his college football career, but he leaves with a certain comfort, saying that "With the opportunity I had, I fulfilled it."
- LSU arrived in Tampa for the Outback Bowl and one of the key players everyone is watching is quarterback Anthony Jennings, the true freshman who will start in place of the injured Zach Mettenberger.
- South Carolina's defensive backfield is very aware of Wisconsin's receivers, led by standout Jared Abbrederis.
- Former Missouri receiver Jason Ray, who was a captain on the Tigers' 2007 team, will be on the opposite sideline in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, as he is Oklahoma State's receivers coach.
- New Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper is excited about his new opportunity, but he still has a week of work to finish at his current place of employment, Duke.
- Vanderbilt sophomore running back Jerron Seymour needs just two touchdowns to break the school's single season rushing touchdown mark, set by Zac Stacy in 2011.
