Biggest Team Victories Tell Powerful Story

Now that the season is half over, let’s examine each SEC team and look at their biggest victory starting with Ole Miss. Here’s how it shakes out:
Ole Miss — Definitely Alabama. The Tide still has only the one loss.
Mississippi State — Auburn. Ditto for Auburn, just the one loss.
Alabama — Arkansas on the road (by 1 point) is their brightest feather!
Auburn — The trouncing of Arkansas at home appears to be their number one win.
Georgia —The Missouri “compromise” by far!
Texas A&M —-Either SC on the road or the OT win versus Arkansas.
Missouri — South Carolina.
Arkansas —Their nonconference victory over Texas Tech.
Kentucky — Like Missouri, it’s South Carolina.
Florida — Tennessee
LSU — Wisconsin in the season opener.
South Carolina — Georgia! How did that happen?
Tennessee — Utah State.
Vanderbilt —  Thank The Lord for the BeeGee’s Massachusetts.
The above list tells us a great deal as teams are measured by “who they have beaten.” This is especially true when determining the bowl selections and the final four. As for the Rebs, we still have a number of difficult contests, however, we don’t have to face Bama again this year…possibly!
