Apart from Alabama and LSU, the SEC West has been Strugglesville this season, looking far less dominant than last season when it had both title contenders and the Cotton Bowl winner. Arkansas made one of the biggest drops in BCS history with last week’s rankings after their loss to University of Louisiana-Monroe.
This week, the ULM Warhawks again took an SEC team to the wire, as they lost 31-28 to Auburn in overtime.
So what is it that’s making them so deadly this season? Consider that with their only two games against the Hogs and the Tigers, they’re currently 2nd nationally in passing yards, averaging 324.5 yards per game. Junior Quarterback Kolton Browning already has 6 TDs and only one interception. Folks are seriously tossing his name about as a Heisman candidate.
Whatever’s going on down there, I’m glad they’re not playing us. They’re like SEC kryptonite. Or Auburn sucks. Could be that.
