SEC Football Preview: Week 11

Week 11 of the SEC football season kicks off this weekend.

The LSU Tigers (No. 13) travel to Tuscaloosa this weekend to take on the Alabama Crimson Tide (No. 1). Both the Tigers and the Tide are coming off of bye weeks, and are ready for the big rivalry that usually finishes in dramatic fashion. The Tigers already have two, three-point road losses, and the last three regular season meetings between the two teams have been decided by four points or less. LSU head coach Les Miles says that this game will be a big challenge, but it will be filled with good competition against a fine opponent.

Kickoff from Bryant-Denny Stadium is set for 8pm on CBS.

The Florida Gators are playing host to the Vanderbilt Commodores this Saturday for their homecoming game. Both teams boast the same season record of 4-4, but the Gators have clocked more SEC wins than the Commodores. The Gators are looking to snap their three-straight SEC losing streak. Florida has beaten Vanderbilt 22 games straight, so hopes are high to end the losing streak. The Gators are looking for a win this weekend to clinch a bowl berth, but quarterback Tyler Murphy says that the team is focused on taking the rest of the season one game at a time.

Kickoff is set for noon from Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

The Auburn Tigers (No. 9) travel to Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers. The last time the Tigers played the Vols in 2009, they beat them 26-22. Auburn is looking to demonstrate their run-heavy game that leads the SEC in rushing that will go against a Vols defense that has the worst run defense in the SEC. Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn says that the play of the entire offense has played a big role in getting the team to average 300 rush yards per game.

Other SEC match-ups this weekend include Mississippi State at Texas A&M, Mizzou at Kentucky, and Arkansas at Ole Miss.
