- Auburn (4-1) at Arkansas (4-1) - The Tigers pull off a upset last week when they beat South Carolina in Columbia 16-13. But now the Tigers have to travel to Fayetteville where the last time they visited they were beat 44-23.

This is a big game for both teams as Auburn is 2-0 in conference play while Arkansas 0-1 losing to Alabama two weeks ago.
- Georgia (3-2) at Tennessee (4-1) - After dropping there first two games to Boise State and South Carolina, Georgia has won three games in a row and now are 2-1 in conference play. But the last two times the Bulldogs have traveled to Knoxville they were handled by the Vols in 2007 35-14 and 2009 45-19. The winner of this game will be a major player for the SEC East race.
- Ohio State (3-2) at Nebraska (4-1) - Both these teams are coming off embarassing losses. Ohio State losing to Michigan State in Columbus where they only could manage to score just 7 points.

Both teams will be looking to get back in the win column as both teams are 0-1 in conference play.
- Miami(FL) (2-2) at Virginia Tech (4-1) - The Hokies were beaten at home last week by Clemson 23-3 last week. It was Virginia Tech first true test of the season as they played a weak non conference schedule there first four games not even playing a team from a bcs conference.

The SEC has won 8 national championship in the last 10 years with Alabama leading the way with 4 titles ('09 '11 '12 '15) , Florida 2 ('06 '08), Auburn 1 ('10) and LSU 1 ('07).
We already think that these teams should compete for championships: Alabama, Clemson, Florida State, Oklahoma, Michigan, Ohio State and LSU. But who will be taking that next step to contend.
