If Auburn and Tennessee defend their home floors tonight, there will be a six-way tie for third place in the Southeastern Conference. SIX!
Alabama and Florida are currently alone in a tie for third, but if both teams were to lose tonight on the road against the league’s first and second place teams, they’ll each fall into a group of six teams with an 8-7 record.
Alabama is up first in the 7 pm game as a heavy underdog at Auburn. Then second-place Tennessee hosts Florida as a five-point favorite in the 9 pm game.
If both teams lose, they will enter into a tie with Kentucky, Mississippi State, Arkansas and Missouri for third.
And that would mean the SEC seeding race is wide open with three games to play.
