Texas A&M football picked up a thrilling win against Arkansas, but Week 4 did more to prove that the SEC is no longer the biggest dog in town.
Wow, Week 4. SEC football play began for most everyone this week, which means starting now we begin to learn more about each team and how the SEC race may actually play out. Texas A&M and Arkansas started the weekend off with their annual Southwest Classic game in Jerry World, and to no one’s surprise it was another instant classic, with Texas A&M winning in overtime.
After the disastrous loss to open the season at UCLA the Aggies are now 3-1 overall, and, more importantly, 1-0 in conference play.
Elsewhere in the conference Georgia stunned a Mississippi State team that handled LSU soundly last week, Auburn took care of business against a bad Missouri team, and South Carolina eked out a win at home over a tough Louisiana Tech team thanks to a 17-point 4th quarter.
Kentucky and Florida slugged it out until the final minutes. Even with the late lead, the Gators extended their winning streak over the Wildcats to 31 straight years. That’s a long time.
The SEC isn’t the powerful conference it once was. That and more in this week’s key storylines.
