As expected, week ten of the SEC Football season delivered products at the highest levels. Across the conference, we saw the unexpected, miracles, beatings, and the resurgence of an unlikely candidate to take over as Head Coach at Auburn. Week ten provided Southeastern Conference Football fans with a better picture of what’s to come in the remaining three weeks in November.
- Georgia Football
Down in Athens, between the hedges at Sanford Stadium, the Georgia Bulldogs humbled Tennessee into submission. Tennessee was no match for the defending national champions, as Kirby Smart had his rabid Bulldogs ready for the fight. In all honesty, that matchup between the Volunteers and Bulldogs was not much of a fight. Tennessee didn’t have the answers, and the Bulldogs’ defense never buckled under the pressure. It was almost as if Georgia sensed fear on the Tennessee sideline and used that to their full advantage. Georgia will hit the road for the next two weeks as the Bulldogs travel to Mississippi State and Kentucky.
In Starkville, we saw Mississippi State somehow eke out a victory over the Auburn Tigers. Yet, the win over Auburn was not the biggest story to come out of Starkville last night. It was the fight that Auburn showed under Cadillac Williams. There was a new life that was breathed into the Auburn Football program this week following the firing of Bryan Harsin, leading some folks around the plains debating on hiring Cadillac as the full-time Head Coach of the Auburn Tigers. Sure, Cadillac doesn’t have the Head Coach experience that some at Auburn may want, but you can’t argue with the facts that Williams loves Auburn, and under him, as an Interm Head Coach, the Tigers look like a completely different team.
Down in Baton Rouge, it was madness as the LSU Tigers defeated Alabama on a gutsy two-point conversion play in overtime. It was pure mayhem down in Death Valley as the Tigers of LSU went toe to toe with Alabama forcing the Crimson Tide out of their comfort zone and leading to the crumble of Alabama. Coach Saban and Alabama had no answer for the game plan that LSU put together to defeat them. LSU defeated Alabama by playing smash-mouth defense and not making costly mistakes on the offensive side of the ball. LSU defeated Alabama head-on with no excuses needed. With the win over Alabama, LSU not sits in the driver’s seat to represent the SEC West in the SEC Championship game against the Georgia Bulldogs.
We have three weeks remaining in the 2022 regular season. As fans, you might as well buckle up and fasten your seat belts because the ending of this season will be unlike we have ever seen.
