The Last of the Undefeated SEC Teams Fall
There are no undefeated teams left in the SEC after this far into the season. After Alabama, Kentucky, and Missouri’s early season failings only a few teams were left. This week, the last of the undefeated teams fell.
LSU lost to Boise State by nineteen points on Friday night. The Tigers looked horrible being outmanned and outplayed from the tipoff. Finally some team was able to show the flaws in this young but talented team.
Ole Miss lost to the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders by three. MTSU was clearly the better team in that match up and their physicality demolished any hope of the Rebels winning. The SEC is a physical league and Ole Miss will have a rough time.
Florida lost Saturday night by one to the Arizona Wildcats in a close one. Florida was previously vying to get into the top three in the country, but the loss dashed the Gators’ hopes of breaking past Indiana.
The question is: has the SEC lost some of its credibility after having no undefeated teams remaining this far into the season? The answer: No. Anyone who watches many of the teams in the SEC play could see that on any given night one of the top teams in the SEC could pull off an upset against the best teams in the country. Georgia (who is last in the SEC) almost beat UCLA and was very close to Indiana throughout the entire game. The SEC is still the SEC and will continue to have success even though there are no remaining undefeated teams.
