Mississippi State Bye Week: What Happened Around the SEC

New, 2 comments

Week five didn’t feature any excitement for Mississippi State fans, but it was exciting nonetheless.

NCAA Football: Mississippi State at Massachusetts Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Alcorn State 10 - Arkansas 52

This game was never close, nor should it have been. Arkansas rolled right through a cupcake in stereotypical blowout fashion that featured an interception returned for a touchdown.

(where’s the petition to call this a pig-six and how many times do I need to sign it?)

Florida 13 - Vandy 6

This game was a less than stellar slugfest that featured two good defenses. It also featured two awful offenses. There’s not much to say about this because nobody wants to acknowledge that this game actually happened. The worst thing about this game is that Derek Mason and Vandy needed this win but couldn’t get it and it might come back to haunt him toward the end of the season if Vandy gets restless and wants a new head coach.

Tennessee 34 - Georgia 31

THIS GAME WAS ARGUABLY ONE OF THE BEST GAMES IN THE SEC THIS SEASON AND IT WAS ALL BECAUSE GEORGIA COULDN’T HOLD ONTO THEIR LEAD AT ALL.

Let’s check the line score via a screenshot from the SEC Network, shall we?

20 points in the 4th quarter, huh? a 24-14 lead heading into the 4th quarter, huh? Oh, and a final few minutes that featured this nonsense:

GEORGIA GETS A HAIL MARY WITH 10 SECONDS LEFT SO THEY CAN WIN:

LOL NOPE TENNESSEE GETS A HAIL MARY AS TIME EXPIRES SO THEY ACTUALLY WIN

This game was incredible

Louisiana-Monroe 7 - Auburn 58

Auburn blew out a cupcake. This game wasn’t as incredible, but Auburn’s offense came to life and got some confidence heading into a must win matchup (for both teams) against Mississippi State.

Texas A&M 24 - South Carolina 13

Texas A&M did not have a strong offensive showing against a bad South Carolina team. The Gamecocks looked improved against the Aggies, but they simply did not have enough talent to overcome A&M’s stout defense. If the Aggies can find a consistent offense to go with that defense (that’s weird to say because it’s backwards but whatever) then A&M will have a special season.

But hey, cool interception, South Carolina

Kentucky 6 - Alabama 34

Alabama, like Auburn and Arkansas, blew out a cupcake. Yeah, sure, Kentucky had a lead at one point in this game, but they also are still Kentucky and they are still not good at football. Good try, good effort, Kentucky.

Memphis 28 - Ole Miss 48

Ole Miss got a three score lead and didn’t blow it! That’s kinda weird. Memphis isn’t the same team that they were a year ago, but they still looked dangerous at times. Ultimately, however, Riley Ferguson’s mistakes would end up costing them. You can’t throw three interceptions on the road in the SEC and expect to win.

Mizzou 7 - LSU 42

Mizzou’s passing attack completely vanished. LSU’s offense appeared out of nowhere. LSU wound up steamrolling Mizzou with little to no issues in Ed Orgeron’s first game as LSU’s interim head coach and surely people are going to react normally to this, right? Probably not but they shouldn’t because ED ORGERON HAS NEVER LOST A GAME AS THE HEAD COACH OF LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY AND THEY SET OFFENSIVE RECORDS AND THE BAYOU BENGALS LOOK TERRIFYING AGAIN.
