Missouri SEC East opponent roundup - Week 2: They Supposed to be SEC

The SEC is the premier college football conference. What happened with the SEC east teams on our schedule?

Vanderbilt Rolls Austin Peay 38-3 Behind 35 Point Second Quarter - Anchor Of Gold
Brian Kimbrow capped off a 74-yard drive with a six-yard touchdown run, and one Austin Peay three-and-out later, Austyn Carta-Samuels hit Jonathan Krause with a 56-yard pass to take the ball down to the visitor's four-yard-line. That set up a one-yard Carta-Samuels run to make it 17-0 barely 20 minutes into this contest. When the 'Dore defense held steady once again, Vandy capitalized with a five-play, 51-yard sequence to effectively put this one away at 24-0.

15 Thoughts: It's a Gas! Gas! Gas! - Dawg Sports
6. What can be said about Todd Gurley that has already been said? Not much. He had Herschel-esque numbers yesterday: 30 carries for 134 yards, and a touchdown. When is the last time a Georgia back toted the rock (on a hot, early September game) for 30 carries? His performance and his helmet-less rumble is one of those moments that might just stick with the Heisman voters in a few months.

Florida vs. Miami, Theater of Operations: Gators offense looks ugly in loss to Miami - Alligator Army
Aside from the turnovers, the Gators largely dominated the game from an offensive perspective. But turnovers, which to some degree are largely luck, played the pivotal role. Quarterback Jeff Driskel actually had a higher passer rating than his Miami counterpart, but that doesn't matter when you throw two interceptions inside the red zone. In this review, we'll look at both of Driskel's interceptions and Matt Jones' early fumble that allowed Miami to take control of the momentum for the entire game.

South Carolina Gamecocks 30, Georgia Bulldogs 41: Bulldogs Outlast Gamecocks - Garnet And Black Attack
--Unsurprisingly, Blackledge and Nessler weren't as awful as the idiotic Jesse Palmer about obsessing over Clowney, but they still gave the UGA offensive line too much credit for how things went down. Clowney made some plays and dictated the UGA defensive approach, but the Dawgs executed what they did well, and our back seven, as expected coming into the season, made a ton of the mistakes. Georgia converted several third-and-long plays that really hurt us. T.J. Gurley's blown coverage on the Scott-Wesley TD reminded me a lot of the kinds of coverage breakdowns that hurt us in losses in 2010. Thankfully, based on what we saw around the SEC today, we probably won't see a passing attack like UGA's from another division contender this year.

Tennessee-Western Kentucky Final Score: Vols rout Hilltoppers, 52-20, thanks in part to 7 turnovers - Rocky Top Talk
But the offense rushed for 240 yards with Marlin Lane getting 97, Rajion Neal getting 74, and Deanthonie Summerhill getting 40. And although the defense gave up a ton of yards, they mostly minimized the points, and they either forced or at least made the most of seven turnovers.

Kentucky Wildcats 41 - Miami Redhawks 7 : Postmortem - A Sea Of Blue
Here are just a few of the highlights in statistical format. Maxwell Smith 15/23, 310 YD's ,3 TD's, 0 INT's; Oh yeah, and Jalen Whitlow was 10/12, 103 YD's. That's 25/37, 413 YD's, 3 TD's, 0 INT's. There's your "Air Raid" fans. Kentucky put the ball in the air long, short, and all points in-between. What about rushing you say? Kentucky was a combined 38 ATT for 262YD's. How's that for balance? JoJo Kemp led all rushers with 78YD's on 12 attempts. Javess Blue led all receivers with 6 catches for 114 YD's and one TD.

Ole Miss Rebels Defeat Southeast Missouri Redhawks 31-13 - Red Cup Rebellion
After a pair of deep touchdown receptions by freshman tight end Evan Engram and junior receiver Donte Moncrief, the Ole Miss Rebels pulled Bo Wallace. All seemed alright, with the Rebs sitting pretty at halftime, up 31-0 on the Southeast Missouri Redhawks after amassing 369 yards of offense in the first half.

By the Numbers: SHSU - Good Bull Hunting
4. Touchdowns allowed. This was not encouraging, particularly the two long ones (68 yard run and 75 yard pass). [looks at schedule] [tugs collar]
