In Week 9 action in the SEC, the game featured on CBS pits the Georgia Bulldogs against the Florida Gators at the world’s largest outdoor cocktail party in Jacksonville, Florida. While the game was closed for a while, UGA got away with it.

In the first window, we saw the final game of the Bryan Harsin era as the Auburn Tigers fell to the Arkansas Razorbacks 41-27. That snapped a six-game series slip for the Hogs. On Monday, Harsin was fired after just 21 games on the Plains.

After a huge win for South Carolina in Week 8, they fell to unranked Missouri at home, 23-10. The week’s blowout saw the Tennessee Vols edge past Kentucky, 44-6. In the night game, we saw Ole Miss hold off the Texas A&M Aggies in College Station, 31-28.

This week, we’ll see all 14 SEC teams in action. The biggest matchups will feature the Vols coming to Athens to take on the No. 1 Georgia Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide heading to Death Valley to take on LSU. Both games could determine the SEC Championship game.
