Following a big slate of games during Week 7 of the 2013 college football season, ESPN has updated its SEC bowl game projections.
It was a hectic weekend around the conference, headlined by Mizzou’s monumental upset of Georgia. The Tigers now stand at 6-0 and might be expected to march towards a BCS berth. However, things aren’t quite so easy in the SEC East. Senior quarterback James Franklin suffered a separated shoulder, meaning Mizzou still has to face Florida, South Carolina and cross-divisional foe Texas A&M with redshirt freshman Maty Mauk under center.
Alabama remains entrenched at the No. 1 spot both nationally and in the league. Should the Tide play for the national title as expected, LSU, which manhandled Florida, 17-6, in Week 7, might earn an at-large bid to the Sugar Bowl. Mizzou did jump Georgia, but remains behind Texas A&M.
As for the bottom, don’t expect Vandy or Arkansas to fill the SEC’s allotted bowl invites if they keep losing so badly.
