Three to watch

Tennessee at No. 12 Georgia, noon (ESPN)

Georgia (2-1, 0-1 SEC) doesn’t have much wiggle room in the Eastern Division after losing to South Carolina two weeks ago. After trouncing Troy last week, the Bulldogs play seven SEC games in a row. The Vols (2-1, 0-0) open SEC play behind quarterback Justin Worley (Rock Hill Northwestern), who has thrown for 721 yards in three games.

Arkansas at No. 6 Texas A&M, 3:30 p.m. (CBS, WBTV, ch. 3)

The Aggies (4-0, 1-0) can’t stumble against the Razorbacks – A&M’s next three games are against No. 14 Mississippi State, No. 10 Mississippi and No. 3 Alabama. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Arkansas averages (3-1, 0-1) 227.8 rush yards between the tackles, best among the Power Five conferences.

Missouri at No. 13 South Carolina, 7 p.m. (ESPN)

Coach Steve Spurrier is unhappy with how the Gamecocks (3-1, 1-1) have started, but quarterback Dylan Thompson is playing well (1,140 yards, 11 touchdowns). This is the SEC opener for Missouri (3-1, 0-0), which lost at home last week against Indiana.
