SEC Week 10 roundup

GATORS TAKE ANOTHER LOSS THIS WEEK

South Carolina got their seventh win of the season against Florida this past Saturday. South Carolina went up 28-12 when quarterback Jake Bentley threw three interceptions for the first time in his career but helped the Gamecocks with a 7-yard touchdown run with less than 3 minutes left in the third quarter. Florida has now lost five straight games making Interim head coach Randy Shannon 0-2.

The Gators pulled within eight points on a 1-yard Mark Thompson touchdown run with 3:43 left in the game. South Carolina place-kicker Parker White missed a 47-yard attempt giving the Gators this opportunity. Gamecocks cornerback Jamyest Williams locked the victory with an interception with almost a minute remaining in the game.

Just two years ago the Gamecocks were 3-9, so improvement has definitely taken place. The team also finished with a season-high of 469 yards, the most they have gained in an SEC game since being under offensive coordinator Kurt Roper.

Malik Zaire, the starting quarterback since Shannon replace Jim McElwain, was replace by Felipe Franks, who has started six games this year, when Zaire took a shotgun snap. The Gators finished with three turnover and 301 yards.

NO.1 losses to No. 10

No. 1 Georgia took its first lost of the season this Saturday to Auburn 40 to 17. Auburn put up 237 rushing yards to Georgia’s 46. This was Auburn’s first home game in a month and making the crowd extra loud and supportive of their team’s strong performance.

RB Kerryon Johnson and his 233 all-purpose yards stole the show in Saturday’s win. This win gave notable attention to some key players.

ALABAMA PASSED ITS TOUGHEST TEST

Alabama took a tough win this Saturday against Mississippi State. They came out with a 31-24 win in their toughest win. Jalen Hurts led a final-minute touchdown drive, culminating with a 26-yard catch-and-run TD to Devonta Smith with just 25 seconds left. Georgia’s loss clears the way for the Crimson Tide to move up in rankings.

But both teams started off strong with Mississippi State scoring with an 11-yard touchdown run from running back Aeris Williams in the first quarter. Hurts responded shortly after to tie the game. In the second quarter Mississippi stood their ground and William took another 5-yard rushing touchdown to give the Bulldogs the lead again. Alabama responded again with Josh Jacobs scoring a 1-yard touchdown.

Mississppi State’s quarterback Nick Fitzgerald juked one Alabama defensed and ran through another for a 2-yard touchdown. By the fourth quarter with 1:20 left the teams were tied.
