New, comment

This weekend will go a long way for separating teams.

Ole Miss at #14 Mississippi State

Noon | CBS

Ole Miss has looked excellent so far in SEC play. Now they have a big rivalry game on the road that can really cement themselves as a legit team in SEC play this year.

Missouri at South Carolina

Noon | SEC Network

After looking dead in non conference play, South Carolina is all of a sudden 2-0 in SEC play. If they can top the Tigers (certainly a real possibility) then they will have one of the more interesting seasons brewing in college basketball.

Texas A&M at Alabama

2:30 p.m. CT | SEC Network

Texas A&M has had a rough time shooting the three all year, and they come into a game against a Bama team that’s struggled to defend it. If A&M can make a turnaround they have a matchup in this one that has the potential to be the catalyst for that.

Georgia at #11 Auburn

3 p.m. | ESPN2

Auburn has been in a bit of a funk recently. A game against Georgia should help the Tigers get out of that, but if they struggle there could be bigger issues for them this year.

LSU at Arkansas

5 p.m. | SEC Network

Arkansas has a tough run of games coming up so this one in Bud Walton is a big one for the Hogs. LSU held off Alabama in their opener and will look to get their young team their first win in a true road game.

#3 Tennessee at Florida

5 p.m. | ESPN

The Gators have been tough at home this year, but Tennessee looks to be a completely different animal compared to the rest of the SEC. An upset is always in the cards but the Vols should be heavy favorites. Grant Williams has been dominant so far in conference play.

Vanderbilt at #18 Kentucky

7:30 p.m. | SEC Network

The Wildcats overcame a slow start to rebound against Texas A&M. Vanderbilt has had an extremely tough start in SEC play. This one could get ugly for the Commodores.
