This Week: Lost to Florida by 6, Beat LSU by 2

This Week: Beat South Carolina by 21, Lost at Kentucky by 25

This Week: Beat Arkansas by 7, Lost at Florida by 26

This Week: Won at Alabama by 6, Beat Tennessee by 26
-This team still isn’t the greatest offense in the world, but they defend better than anybody in the league by far.
