Week 9 brought out the best of the best in college football's most prestigious conference.
We had career-high and record-setting performances and are now down to only one unbeaten team as the final month of the regular-season schedule approaches.
Oh yeah, we also have the Heisman front-runner in the fold.
Here's a rundown of who's HOT and who's NOT this week in the SEC.
Ryan Mallett - QB - Arkansas
The Razorback's signal-caller set a school-record for passing yardage with 409, completing 27-of-44 attempts to go along with three touchdown passes. Mallett's fourth career 400+ passing contest led Arkansas past Vanderbilt, 49-14.
Michael Dyer - RB - Auburn
Dyer ran through, over, and around the Ole Miss defense for 180 yards and a score on 21 carries. His performance led Auburn past the Rebels, 51-31. Dyer has been named one of three SEC players as Freshman of the Week.
Cam Newton - QB - Auburn
Newton just keeps on keeping on, throwing for two touchdowns and 209 yards while completing 18-of-24 passing attempts and rushing for 45 yards on 11 carries. For good measure, the Auburn quarterback also caught a 20-yard touchdown pass in the big win over Ole Miss. Go ahead and give Big Cam the trophy, the Tigers are now 9-0.
Jeff Scott - RB - Ole Miss
Scott was terrific in the loss to Auburn, rushing for 134 yards on just nine carries. The Rebel's slasher also tallied a touchdown run of 83 yards.
Denarius Moore - WR - Tennessee
Moore was spectacular for the Vols in the loss at Columbia. The wide receiver caught six passes for 228 yards and a score.
Randall Cobb - WR - Kentucky
Kentucky's "Mr. Everything," accounted for 292 all-purpose yards including 12 catches for 171 yards and a touchdown of 48 yards in the Wildcat's loss to Mississippi State.
Marcus Lattimore - RB - South Carolina
The Gamecock's star running back busted up the Vol's defense for 184 yards and a touchdown on 29 carries in win over Tennessee. Lattimore is 1/3 of the SEC's Freshman Trifecta of the Week.
Demond Washington - KR - Auburn
Washington had five kick returns for 176 yards, including an electric 95-yard touchdown run in Auburn's win over Ole Miss.
Trey Burton - QB - Florida
Burton rushed for 110 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown run of 51 yards in Florida's 34-31 overtime win over Georgia. Appropriately, "Trey," makes up the other third of the SEC's Freshman of the Week.
Knile Davis - RB - Arkansas
Davis ripped the Vandy defense for 82 yards and two scores on 19 carries, helping the Razorback's blow past the Commodores, 49-14.

NOT SO HOT
Aaron Murray - QB - Georgia
Murray threw for 313 yards and three touchdowns but completed only 18-of-37 attempts and had three costly interceptions in a 34-31 overtime loss to the Gators.
Mike Hartline - QB - Kentucky
The normally steady quarterback was off the mark in Saturday's loss to Mississippi State. Hartline completed 23-of-41 attempts for 258 yards and two scores, but had three interceptions on the day.
Larry Smith - QB - Vanderbilt
The Commodore's signal-caller completed just 4-of-12 passing attempts and rushed for only 10 yards on nine carries in a 49-14 loss to Arkansas.
