A must-see game at this week’s Southeastern Conference is easy. There is an egg bowl on top of the iron bowl on a long shot. The annual Magnolia rivalry cannot miss the match between Mississippi 8th and Mississippi on Thanksgiving Night. Rebels Lane Kiffin and Bulldog Mike Reach have two offensive masterminds of college football. Not surprisingly, Matt Corral of Ole Miss and Will Rodgers of Mississippi State also showcase the two most dynamic passers-by in the game. The final week of the SEC regular season is full of traditional rivals.
Watch the 13th week of the Southeastern Conference.
This week’s game
8th Mississippi (9-2, 5-2) in Mississippi (7-4, 4-3) on Thursday night.
The SEC West Division race ended at Ole Miss and Mississippi State. Still, both the rebels and the bulldog have powerful crimes and will host a must-see Thanksgiving night show. Olemis leads the SEC in a 517-yard game, and Mississippi is at the top of the league in over 390-yard games that pass this season. Naturally, the attack is triggered by an experienced and talented quarterback. Rebel Matt Corral attacked the entire country a year ago and continues to do so this season. He passed at 3,105 yards and 19 touchdowns and ran at 552 yards and 10 touchdowns. Coral’s bulldog counterpart is Will Rogers, who thrived under Mike Reach’s pass-heavy scheme. Rogers threw 4,113 yards and 34 touchdowns to lead the SEC in a total attack. Indeed, it sounds like a game where the last person to have the ball wins. Mississippi has won last year’s rival game 31-24 and is aiming for their first victory in Mississippi since 2017.
Several SEC teams have finished their league match and seasoned with rivals in states such as Georgia facing Georgia Institute of Technology, Florida facing Florida, Kentucky facing Louisville, and South Carolina facing Clemson. To conclude. These games were not held last year due to the SEC-only 10-game schedule by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The best matchup
No. 14 Texas A & M attack and LSU attack. Both teams, known for their high scores, sometimes struggle to catch up with the SEC. Aggie’s averaged 29.8 points in this season’s match and finished 11th in the league. LSU lags 12th in the 27.1-point game. Texas A & M has scored only 39 points in total in the last two SEC games, including a 29-19 defeat to Olemis two weeks ago. LSU has not exceeded 17 points in any of the last three SEC games.
Just a few weeks ago, Iron Bowl was like a SEC West Division showdown, as both 3rd Alabama and rival Auburn were competing for the League Championship Game and the College Football Playoff. However, the Tigers’ fate has lost to 14th place in Texas A & M, Mississippi, South Carolina in the past three weeks. Auburn had a 28-3 lead over the bulldog before falling to 43-34. The Tigers rose 14-0 in Gamecock last week, but fell 21-17. Alabama is one of the most fierce rivals in college football, and you can get the best out of Auburn. Still, it’s hard to imagine the Tigers delaying Alabama’s powerful attacks. And it leads the SEC with 59 aggressive touchdowns.
In the numbers
No. 1 Georgia aims to be 12-0 for the first time since the 1980 National School Champion at the Georgia Institute of Technology on Saturday. Tennessee leads the country with an average of 2.95 plays per minute. Vols concludes the regular season against its rival Vanderbilt in the state. When No. 3 Alabama defeated Arkansas last week, he extended the SEC record for 14 consecutive seasons, winning more than 10 wins. Alabama quarterback Bryce Young completed 77% of third down throws (67 out of 87) with 11 touchdowns and 3 passcuts. Kentucky is the second school in history to have a 2,000-yard passerby (Will Levis), a 1,000-yard rusher (Chris Rodriguez Jr.), and a 1,000-yard receiver (Wandale Robinson). It first achieved that feat in 2007. Missouri’s Tyler Buddy was rushing 146 yards with an OT victory over Florida last week. He won 127 of those yards in the second half and overtime. LSU linebacker Damone Clark leads the SEC with 125 tackles. He also outperforms the whole country with 11.4 tackles per game.
Alabama linebacker Will Anderson Jr. is at the top of the SEC for suffering losses by strengthening Crimson Tide’s strong defenses. The 6-foot, 4,234-pound sophomore lost more than three tackles in six of Alabama’s 11 games this season. Anderson has a 27 1/2 tackle behind the line of scrimmage, with a 1/5 sack of 13 heading for Iron Bowl, an annual rival with Tide Auburn.
