SEC Football: Conference Play Kicks off with a Bang
After a largely successful opening weekend, the SEC is one of the only conferences to begin conference play in the second week of the season and these games promise to be exciting.
Georgia, one of just two teams to lose last weekend, played against a very good Boise State team and will be looking to be a factor in the SEC East. They start with South Carolina, the division champions from last year, who bring back a bunch of talent at the offensive skill positions.
The challenge for Georgia will be to keep the Gamecocks out of their backfield and then deliver an accurate ball. Devin Taylor, Melvin Ingram and all-everything recruit Jadeveon Clowney are all outstanding pass rushers and Stephon Gilmore is a great cornerback.
Georgia’s Brandon Boykin was the breakout performer against Boise State and he could see a lot more action on offense in this game. He’ll have difficult task of covering Alshon Jeffrey while on defense. Aaron Murray hopes to have more time to throw than he did against the Broncos.
The other big game is Mississippi State at Auburn though this game lost some of its appeal after Auburn’s near loss to Utah State though having that close call could be a wakeup call for the Tigers.
The Bulldogs have one of the best rushing attacks in the country with Vick Ballard at running back and dual-threat Chris Relf at quarterback. Their defense had a solid performance against Memphis forcing three turnovers but they were without standout tackle Fletcher Cox.
Be sure not to miss either of these games.
