Other SEC games for the week of the 19th are:

Georgia at Vanderbilt, noon, WVLT

Florida at Missouri, 12:21, MyVLT

Pretty stout selection of games that Saturday! As the kickoff day for the stretch run, it should separate the contenders from the pretenders and the chargers from the backsliders. Here's hoping the Vols get over that 0-fer run against ranked teams and position themselves to make a bowl.
