Around the SEC

NCAA Football: Georgia at Louisiana State Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It’s finally here. The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. And this year, it’s the biggest version of the game since 2012 when Georgia knocked off an undefeated Florida team on their way to that devastating defeat in the SEC Championship Game.

Before our pilgrimage to Jacksonville (or St. Simons for some undergrads), let’s check out what’s happening around the league.

Here’s what’s happening around the SEC:

  • College Gameday will be in Jacksonville for the WLOCP for the first time since 2005. This is shaping up to be quite the weekend.
  • Florida linebacker Rayshad Jackson has come out and publicly challenged Elijah Holyfield, stating they are all “capable of trucking him back”. It’s not the most offensive thing ever said, but I for one would not want to come close to offending Holyfield.
  • Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts sustained a sprained ankle against Tennessee and would not be available if the Tide played this weekend. The hope is that he will be back for the LSU game on November 3rd.
  • LSU linebacker Devin White has been suspended for the first half of the Alabama game after being called for targeting in the second half against Mississippi State. A lot of LSU fans are not pleased about this suspension and have even accused the league of collusion.
  • Arkansas quarterback Ty Storey is expected back this weekend when the Razorbacks take on Vanderbilt. He was held out last week while dealing with a concussion.
  • Kentucky coach Mark Stoops has stated he will play “several” quarterbacks this weekend against Missouri. What that will look like, I am not sure, but I’m very curious to find out.
  • Juco wide receiver JaVonta Payton has decommitted from Ole Miss after visiting Tennessee. The Nashville native is a heavy lean to the Vols at the moment.
  • Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead has stated that backup quarterback Keytaon Thompson could get his shot at supplanting starter Nick Fitzgerald as soon as this weekend against Texas A&M. This is a far cry from the preseason Heisman talk for Fitzgerald.

Until next time... GO DAWGS!!!
