Now, Kentucky sits atop the standings, followed by Auburn at No. 2 and LSU at No. 3.

    Oh man… kinda feels like a Auburn/UK SEC championship is brewing again.

    Wouldn’t Auburn have 3 losses?

      Yes. Not sure why the official SEC website hadn’t been updated yet, but I uploaded from a different source. Standings remain the same.

      If we beat LSU on Tuesday, Auburn, Florida twice it then it really won’t matter because we would clinch at least a share of the SEC regular season Title and the probable#1 seed however even getting the #2 seed still means having only to play 3 games in 3 days instead of playing 4 games in 4 days or 5 games in 5 games which is still possibly although not likely. We will likely eliminate LSU from contention with a win on Tuesday, which I’m not going to lie it will be incredibly difficult to beat LSU on the road could beat LSU especially with them coming off at really bad loss to Alabama. Elite Ashton Hagans better show up and not the Ashton Hagans from the past 5 games.

    While that looks good right now it doesn’t really change much. Still have to take care of business against each of them, just like before if we want to win it.

    I sure hope we can close out. This team can beat anyone or anyone can beat them. All depends on what kind of intensity they bring to each game.

    You’re right – but this team seems to always get up for the big games, and the rivalry games. In a way, the game at A&M might be the most worrisome.. as the others are all against either Tennessee, Florida, or the teams we’re battling for first place.
