We are at the midway point of the season and each week seems to be more exciting than the last. What does Week 6 bring us?
Perhaps the most exciting part of this week is that there is only one non-conference, cupcake game on the schedule. That one? Ole Miss vs. ULM. So, if you want to be bored to death — go ahead and watch that one at 4 p.m. ET on the SEC Network. If you want to watch actual good football on both sides, here is the rest of the schedule.
The noon slate brings two games, one of which will be a blow out of epic proportion and one that actually may be an interesting matchup. On ESPN, Alabama heads to Fayetteville to crush the hopes and dreams of the Hogs, if they have any left at this point. On the SEC Network, South Carolina hosts Missouri in a surprisingly important game for both teams.
Live on CBS at 3:30, the Game of the Week is sure to be exciting and turn quite a few heads. The LSU Tigers, who are surging and sit at No. 5 in the current AP Poll, go on the road to face a Florida Gators team that now sits at No. 22 after knocking off Mississippi State. If you have to pick just one game to watch this week, this may be the one.
If the Gators and the Tigers aren’t your cross-divisional cup of tea, you can tune into ESPN at 7 to watch the Benny Snell-led Kentucky Wildcats make the trip to College Station to take on Kellen Mond and the Aggies. Has Mark Stoops finally turned things around in Lexington or will this be a big-time win for the Jimbo Fisher era?
At 7:30 on the SEC Network, Vanderbilt heads to Athens with (foolish) hopes of not being squashed like an ant by Jake Fromm and the Bulldogs. If the SEC East isn’t for you, you can also watch No. 8 Auburn take on a struggling Mississippi State team. While the Bulldogs get to host the Tigers in Starkville — this one likely won’t be pretty for those in Maroon and White.
