Everybody is still recovering from the weekend that was in the SEC. Let's see what people are saying about the top games and performances from Week 5.
Alabama started the season 3-0, but it didn’t look like the No. 1 team in the nation. On Saturday,
the Crimson Tide finally played with passion
in a shutout victory over Ole Miss.
Saturday’s loss to Alabama wasn’t pretty, but all things considered,
the Ole Miss defense held its own
against the Tide.
When former roommates
competed against each other on Saturday,
it was Murray who got the last laugh
as Georgia defeated LSU in a shootout.
Mettenberger and Murray will meet again
-- if not in December, in the near future on Sunday.
LSU coach Les Miles always covers for his players, in victory or defeat, but
he can’t cover for the Tigers' defensive woes against Georgia
and a balanced rushing attack, the Texas A&M offense keeps getting better, but eventually
the Aggies will need their young defense to mature
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is hopeful that quarterback
will return in two weeks
. In the meantime,
will start for the Gamecocks.
The Florida coaches raved about running back
coming into the season. They knew they weren't wrong.
Jones stepped up for the Gators
with a career-high 176 yards against Kentucky on Saturday.
Auburn has had a week to prepare for
what could be its biggest game of the season
For better or worse,
is Tennessee’s quarterback
. Coach Butch Jones stuck with Worley in Saturday’s win over South Alabama.
