Trent Richardson is running scout team at Alabama practice

With Myles Garrett on the mend and Trevor Knight now banged up things could get worse for A&M. I think it was the type of game we have been capable of all along. "What's more fun than playing college football?"

LSU's Danny Etling completed 11 of 24 passes for 92 yards and also was intercepted once in the fourth quarter, leading to a late Alabama field goal. Despite the seemingly easy matchup on paper, a win won't be enough for the Rebels. Although Kentucky is only one game behind Florida in the loss column, the Gators own the head-to-head tiebreaker edge. That means no more head-shaking turnovers, no more gaping holes on defense, and no more relaxing with a lead.

To call the Bulldogs' season a disappointment would be an understatement. A lingering shoulder issue temporarily knocked Malone out of the Alabama game, forcing Maea Teuhema to shift to left tackle for a time before Malone returned for the final few series. They want to return to their dominant form and prove that they deserve their No. 4 ranking over some undefeated teams. The good news for coach Odom is there's no where to go but up from here. We took shots down the field. The Tigers still need at least one more victory out of three remaining conference games to qualify for the postseason.

LSU: The Tigers might not tumble out of the Top 25 because of how close they played the nation's top team, but they'll fall. And that was of course during the BCS-era when only two teams qualified to compete in the quasi-playoff. Missouri, on the contrary, has been trending in the wrong direction for four weeks now. At the top, we've got head coach Nick Saban's full press conference.

The Tigers' defense came up big yet again when end Frank Heron sacked and stripped Hurts, and Key recovered on the Alabama 42. Auburn's streak started in 2009, when Ben Tate ran for 1,362 yards. Kentucky hadn't lost when leading after three quarters since falling 24-17 to SC in 2008.

Giants Hold on, Manning Has 4 TD Passes in 28-23 Win
He is tied for the team lead in sacks with four, has a team-high 19 hurries and has done an outstanding job against the run. On Sunday at 1 PM EST, the Eagles will make the trip up the turnpike to the Meadowlands to face Eli Manning and the Giants.

The dominating performance came after star safety Eddie Jackson was lost for the season with a broken leg.

Orgeron was a graduate assistant at Northwestern (La.) State, where he played, and at McNeese State before getting a job at Arkansas in 1986 as a weight room graduate assistant. Collins and Solomon have kept quiet about their visits for the most part, but a decisive conference win is sure to give MI some points on the recruiting trail. I've been with them, and this is not going to affect us.

Earlier this season, Anderson said maintaining the team's chemistry played a big part in why he returned for his senior year.

"We want a guy that's going to go hit a guy that weighs 250 pounds running downhill as hard as he can hit him", the coach said.

Between now and January 9, you'll hear again and again that Alabama's freshman quarterback, Jalen Hurts, is just inexperienced and mistake-prone enough to represent a sliver of hope for Alabama's potential playoff usurpers. Here it is, THE game. Coach O seems to be perfectly fine sitting back and letting his staff do their jobs, and with this plan, he would have one of the best minds in the game at both coordinator positions. That's what you're looking for, somebody that's an encourager and has a positive outlook and is always trying to help people be their best, and he was doing all those things. In their way is a hot LSU team but they should be able to handle them as long as the occasion doesn't get to them.

Missouri had its chances to beat SC in the Battle of Columbia on Saturday afternoon, but three costly turnovers were what ultimately did them in.
