Top-ranked Alabama got revenge on Texas A&M in the form of a 49-42 win over the No. 6 Aggies. I said watch for Bama QB AJ McCarron to have a big game. No one in the national media will give him the credit he deserves. When A & M went up 14-0 in the first eight minutes, he settled the team down. Finished the game 20-for-29, 334 yards, 4 TD.
In a big SEC East matchup, South Carolina had a nice bounce back win after losing to Georgia. South Carolina scored the game’s first 28 points, then held on late to beat Vanderbilt 35-25. The Gamecocks scored touchdowns on each of their first four possessions in the game, including a pair of touchdown passes from Connor Shaw. Shaw had a big game for South Carolina, passing for 284 yards and three touchdowns, while rushing for 84 yards to lead the team.
Seven teams from the SEC are in the AP Top 25. Mizzou will play five of those teams.
