ESPN 850 WRUF – Gainesville, Florida

SEC Football Weekend Preview

By on September 19th, 2013

Week 4 of the SEC football season kicks off this weekend.

It’s the clash of the Tigers as LSU takes on Auburn at home in Death Valley. Both teams are 3-0 and are looking forward to a rematch of a close 12-10 LSU win from last year. Auburn leaves home for the first time this season hoping for a win on the road, but the Tigers haven’t won in Death Valley since 1999. Auburn is going through a growing process with their new quarterback. Auburn head Coach Gus Malzahn has a lot to prepare for with the team as they play in one of the loudest stadiums in the country.

LSU starts their eight game SEC play this weekend. Head coach Les Miles is excited to start SEC play with an SEC West rival team at home. Miles thinks that the Auburn match-up will be a good one with the talent of both the quarterbacks.

Kickoff from Death Valley at 7:45 on ESPN.

Texas A&M is looking for a win at home against SMU after a devastating loss to Alabama last weekend. A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is focused and looking forward to the rest of the season and moving on from their loss.

The last time SMU and Texas A&M met was when quarterback Johnny Manziel got his first victory and was put on the radar as a breakout player. Kickoff from Kyle Field is set for 7:00 on ESPNU.

Alabama takes on Colorado State for their home opener in Bryant-Denny Stadium this weekend. Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain was coach Nick Saban’s former offensive coordinator. McElwain helped lead the Tide to two national championships, and knows better than most what to expect of Alabama on the field.  Tide coach Nick Saban is looking forward to cleaning up the defense after giving up 42 points last weekend’s to Texas A&M.

Kickoff is at 7:00 in Bryant-Denny Stadium on ESPN2.

Kentucky has a bye this weekend, but head coach Mark Stoops is working with the team to prepare for their match-up against Florida next week. The Wildcats are trying to bounce back from their tough loss against Louisville last Saturday and put a win on their record. Stoops is working with quarterback Maxwell Smith to improve his play.

Other teams on a bye this weekend are Ole Miss and South Carolina.

The rest of the SEC matchups are Vanderbilt at Massachusetts, North Texas at Georgia, Arkansas at Rutgers,  Tennessee at Florida, Troy at Mississippi State, and Missouri at Indiana.
