Another fantastic week of SEC Football is behind us. Below you will find our impressions from this week’s games. There were several intriguing matchups. Be sure to share your own impressions of them in the comments below. Off we go!
- The Tide defense looked dominant. The pass rush was incredible and the secondary benefited tremendously.
- Eddie Jackson is a silky-smooth punt returner.
- Jalen Hurts still has a lot of room to improve in the passing game, but he is a dynamic runner.
- Calvin Ridley had two uncharacteristic drops. That’ll be something to keep an eye on moving forward.
- Rawleigh Williams finally found some room to run. He looked very good.
- Austin Allen, aside from one interception, was masterful. In terms of passing, he outperformed Chad Kelly.
- The Hog defense wasn’t great, but they did enough, holding an explosive Ole Miss offense to just 30 points on the night.
- The Tigers had a bye week this week.
- Luke Del Rio looked atrocious, throwing three interceptions. He will have to play better if Florida want to win the SEC East.
