Around the SEC: Week 8

A lot of the top teams in the SEC showed us what they were made of this past week.

Crimson Comeback

No. 11 Alabama Crimson Tide and No. 17 Tennessee Volunteers faced off.

The Volunteers entered halftime with a 21-7 lead over the Crimson Tide. However, a scoreless second half for the Volunteers allowed Alabama to come back and finish the game with a 34-20 victory.

Jalen Milroe threw two touchdowns and had a total of 220 yards. Running back Jase McClellan ran for 115 yards and also had a touchdown in the victory. Jihaad Campbell even returned a fumble for a touchdown.

Missouri Keeps Moving

Quarterback Brady Cook threw for 198 yards and even rushed for 64 yards and a touchdown. Running back Cody Schrader ran for 159 yards and two touchdowns. The Tigers defense was able to intercept Spencer Rattler once and sack him six times. The Gamecocks went without any touchdowns and were only able to score from field goals.

The LSU Tigers also had a dominant 62-0 win over Army this weekend. Army quarterbacks Champ Harris and Larry Robinson combined for an underwhelming 42 total passing yards.

Making History
