SEC: Statement games and national title implications


SEC links for Saturday:

– The Cowboys Classic is a statement game for LSU and TCU. LSU isn’t happy with its No. 12 ranking and wants to prove its better than that.

– As Georgia meets Clemson tonight, Bulldogs know their key to victory is execution not emotion. This is a game with national championship implications, by the way.

– Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron was wearing a walking boot as the Crimson Tide arrived in Atlanta for game with Virginia Tech. The school says the boot is a precautionary measure and McCarron will be ready to play against the Hokies.

– Alabama players say they are anxious to see where the defending national champions “are at” as they open the season.

Two different versions of the spread offense clash tonight when Auburn meets Washington State. It’s Gus Malzahn vs. Mike Leach.

– As Oklahoma State gets ready for Mississippi State, coach Mike Gundy had to change his defensive philosophy. Be sure and check out MSU’s new helmets, too.

– With Johnny Manziel decision decided, Texas A&M opens the season against an old SWC foe in Rice. Manziel will sit out the first half.

– Tennessee opens the Butch Jones Era, but how will it look? The Vols meet Austin Peay.

– Florida isn’t expecting a cakewalk today against Toldeo. The Gators swear they are not taking the Rockets for granted.

No more talking as Bret Bielema Era starts in Fayetteville. Arkansas plays Louisiana-Lafayette.

– Missouri wants to put its 2012 season in the rearview mirror as it opens against Murray State today. James Franklin’s legacy is on the line.
