Arkansas was supposed to be the last team Missouri played this season, but after a win, the Tigers go bowling. South Carolina didn’t have to beat Clemson to get into a bowl game, but a win over the Tigers on the road for the first time since 2000 doesn’t hurt their feelings at all.

The tide rolled against Cadillac in the Iron Bowl, Tennessee brought the Commodores back to earth, and Texas A&M ended LSU’s college football playoff hopes.

There was uncertainty in the air before the Egg Bowl was played on Thursday night as rumors swirled about Lane Kiffin heading to Auburn.

The Missouri Tigers go bowling! After a regular season of what-if games, Brady Cook and the Tigers defeated Arkansas at home to earn their sixth win and earn a bowl game berth. This Tiger team is better than their record suggests. They’re about five games away from being one of the best teams in the SEC.

The Florida State Seminoles defeated the Florida Gators for the first time since 2017.

The iron bowl. It’s the best rivalry game in college football. It doesn’t matter how each team’s record enters the game, everyone has a chance to win. In what may be the final game of Bryce Young and Will Anderson at Bryant Denny Stadium, The Tide defeated Cadillac Williams and the Auburn Tigers 49-27. Now Alabama will wait and see if they can sneak into the CFP.
