Texas A&M Aggies: Anthony Swain
The SEC spring meetings in Destin, Florida, are winding down, but college football news from around the conference continues to roll out. As always, we've got you covered.
- Get ready for a great kickoff to the SEC Network. The Aug. 28 game between South Carolina and Texas A&M is shaping up to be a “big production.”
- Two fast-paced offenses will go head to head in 2016 when Auburn hosts Arkansas State.
- Auburn’s defense got a bit of good news when coach Gus Malzahn announced that linebacker Anthony Swain has been reinstated to the team. The junior missed all of the spring with an issue unrelated to injury.
- Pressure? For whatever the reasons, Florida coach Will Muschamp has all the confidence he needs heading into the season.
- Georgia safety Tray Matthews has had a rocky go of it of late. But coach Mark Richt believes he’s “on a turning point of maturing ... and becoming a very dependable guy.” And if you’re wondering whether Keith Marshall might redshirt, Richt answered that as well.
- LSU may not love its annual game with Florida, but the Gators’ athletic director doesn’t feel the same way.
- Jacob Coker has yet to start a college football game under center, but his former coach at Florida State believes Alabama is getting a future NFL draft pick at quarterback.
- Michigan didn't work out for J.J. McGrath. Now the transfer could end up filling a need for Mississippi State at kicker.
- One phone call makes all the difference. LSU was Breeland Speaks' dream school, but he landed at Ole Miss because "a phone call was missed."
Here we go. It's Alabama-LSU week, which is typically one of the most heavily hyped weeks of the SEC season. This one isn't quite the same as some in the recent past, but it still ranks among the nation's biggest games.
- After a ho-hum Saturday around the SEC, Alabama-LSU week is here.
- Las Vegas isn't giving the Tigers much of a chance, however. Alabama is a double-digit favorite on Saturday.
- The (Baton Rouge) Advocate's Matthew Harris writes that LSU will trek to Alabama for its latest test of faith.
- Auburn's Anthony Swain was accused of faking an injury Saturday against Arkansas, but defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson said he suffered a legitimate knee injury.
- With two plays, South Carolina's Mike Davis showed why he's a 2014 Heisman hopeful.
- Speaking of the Heisman, the defending trophy winner -- his name is Johnny Manziel ... maybe you've heard of him -- appears set to make a late push for the award again.
- Personal loss is a heavy burden for Kentucky's Jojo Kemp.
- Mississippi State's Dan Mullen applauds a new NCAA recruiting rule.
- After falling to 4-4 with Saturday's loss to Georgia, Florida is now focused on reaching bowl eligibility.
- Georgia hopes to look more like Jekyll and less like Hyde down the stretch.
- Tennessee looks to regroup before hosting Auburn.
