As it the case every year, the Southeastern Conference gives us some pretty entertaining theater.
There are highly anticipated matchups, such as the game between Texas A&M and Alabama, and thrilling finishes— basically any game featuring Tennessee. And as we move to the closing stretch, the games only figure to become better and better.
And there are plenty of great games still left on the schedule. Of those SEC games, these 10 are the best of what’s left to come.
10. LSU @ Arkansas Nov. 12:
The last two times LSU has played Arkansas, the Razorbacks have dominated them. With Arkansas coming off of an embarrassing loss to Auburn and LSU looking great against Ole Miss, this could give LSU the chance for a little payback. Also the two teams play for a giant gold boot.
9. Georgia vs. Florida Oct. 29:
Something weird usually happens when these two teams play in Jacksonville. The last two years, Florida has dominated Georgia, including a 27-3 win last year. Georgia fans would love a shot at ruining a potentially strong Florida season.
8. Ole Miss @ Texas A&M Nov. 12:
This game plans to offer a lot of points, as the game features two of the more potent offenses in the conference and two of the more porous defenses.
7. South Carolina @Florida Nov. 12
The Will Muschamp and Steve Spurrier Bowl. This will be Muschamp’s first trip back to Florida since he was fired after the 2014 season. It will be interesting to see how Florida fans treat Muschamp on his return.
6. Auburn @ Georgia Nov. 12:
Georgia has had kind of down season under first year head coach Kirby Smart. But with this being the Bulldogs’ last SEC game of the year, he could restore some of the fan bases’ faith with an upset win. And Smart said the famous black jerseys could come out this year. The first time Georgia ever wore those black jerseys? Against Auburn.
5. Auburn @ Ole Miss Oct. 29:
A big for Auburn to prove how legitimate they are. Multiple computer rankings have the Tigers as a top 10 team. If the Tigers can knock off the Rebels at home, some voters may see the Tigers as a top team. And who could forget the last time these two teams met in Oxford?
4. LSU @ Texas A&M Nov. 24:
You’ve just finished off a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. So what do you do next? Watch a great SEC game. This game has produced some magical moments, from Leonard Fournette running over an A&M defender to Les Miles saving his job last season in Baton Rouge.
3. Alabama @ LSU Nov. 5:
Both teams will be coming off of bye weeks. The last two times these teams have met in Baton Rouge, they’ve been one score games. A win over Alabama could help Ed Orgeron get closer to being a full time head coach. And this Alabama team looks like one of the most dominant teams of all-time. This year’s matchup should be a great one.
2. Florida @LSU Nov. 19:
After all the public squabbling between the two schools, you knew this game was going to rank high on the list. These game has produced some thrillers over the years and given the SEC’s weak slate that week, this game figures to have a ton of eyeballs on it.
1. Auburn @ Alabama Nov. 26:
The Iron Bowl. It’s on the last week of the regular season. If both teams continue to win, this game could determine the SEC West and the SEC Championship. And the fans absolutely loathe each other. Should be a fascinating team.
