The SEC’s Week 5 slate features one of the marquee matchups in the nation, as Alabama travels to Georgia for a key conference showdown. The Crimson Tide has not played the Bulldogs in a regular season game since 2008, but there’s plenty at stake in this year’s meeting. Outside of Alabama-Georgia, Florida looks to remain unbeaten with an upset bid over Ole Miss, Texas A&M hosts Mississippi State, while Tennessee and Missouri look to score key SEC wins after losses in conference play last week.
