There’s just one more week left before the SEC championship game, and it’s highlighted by a certain game in the state of Alabama. But let’s also take a look back at Saturday’s action in today’s news and notes from around the league.
- After handling Chattanooga over the weekend, Alabama finally can turn its attention to Auburn and this year’s Iron Bowl.
- Saturday is the Iron Bowl. It’s No. 1 versus No. 4. It’s for first place in the SEC West with a trip to Atlanta on the line. But Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is taking the same approach he’s taken all season.
- With a win over Ole Miss on Saturday, Missouri proved it’s here to stay. The Tigers are just one win away from the SEC championship game.
- It’s been a season to remember for South Carolina’s Connor Shaw. On Saturday, he became the school’s all-time wins leader at quarterback.
- It was supposed to be a shootout between LSU and Texas A&M, but LSU’s defense pushed around the Aggies for the second straight season.
- Johnny Manziel had been tearing up opposing defenses all season, but LSU finally gave he and the Aggies a taste of the SEC on Saturday.
- Florida reached a new low Saturday with a loss to Georgia Southern. After the game, head coach Will Muschamp blamed the Gators’ offense and vowed to get it fixed.
- Aaron Murray's Georgia career ended Saturday with a knee injury. Looking back, where does he rank among the top quarterbacks in UGA history?
- Ole Miss suffered a tough loss to Missouri over the weekend, but the Rebels already have turned their attention to in-state rival Mississippi State and Thursday’s Egg Bowl.
- Tennessee can no longer reach a bowl game, but the Vols will try and make the most out of their season finale at Kentucky.
