Kentucky’s riding a three-game winning streak but to have a chance at the SEC regular season championship, they’re going to need Auburn to start losing.
After holding off Ole Miss last night, the No. 11 Tigers sit squarely atop the SEC standings, with Kentucky and Florida two games back:
Auburn’s next three games? Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, and at Georgia. The Aggies are playing well and Georgia knocked off No. 23 Florida in Athens last night, so there are some potential upsets, but really, the Tigers’ next big test will come in two weeks when Kentucky comes to town.
Meanwhile, Kentucky’s schedule just gets tougher, with a road trip to Missouri, a home date with No. 18 Tennessee, and another road game at Texas A&M. After a loss to Georgia, Florida hosts Alabama and LSU before traveling to South Carolina next Saturday.
I’d make a prediction, but this season, I’ve learned the SEC just means more…uncertainty.
