So what have we learned this afternoon? Texas still isn't that good in year two under Tom Herman. Florida State is at least a little better than Northern Illinois, which shouldn't be as surprising as it is. Alabama is an 800 pound cyborg gorilla with chainsaws for hands.
Now as your football Saturday comes to a close the big question is, which is worse: Tennessee under Jeremy Pruitt or Florida under Dan Mullen? I think the Fightin’ Mullens are ever so slightly more talented and will make just a couple of more plays.
But this may well be a fight for fourth place in the SEC East If they could both lose by 30 I'd be pleased.
If that 7:00 ESPN matchup doesn't tickle your fancy, there's also the surprisingly competitive game between #14 Mississippi State and Kentucky on ESPN2. And Auburn coming off last week’s heart-breaking loss to LSU, trying to take its frustrations out on Arkansas (SEC Network).
Outside the SEC #7 Stanford travels to #20 Oregon for an 8:00 eastern tilt on ABC. And #18 Wisconsin looks to avoid an upset as it travels to Iowa (8:30, FOX).
Everybody have fun, play nice, and be glad you're not breaking down film with Kirby Smart tonight.
