GAINESVILLE, Fla. - The Southeastern Conference has played significant games every week for the last six seasons.

This weekend might be bigger than any of the others.

Yes, the league that has won five consecutive national championships and had a regular-season matchup dubbed "The Game of the Century" earlier this month has as many meaningful games this weekend as any in recent years.

In addition to Arkansas-LSU, which will help determine the Western Division race, the league has renowned rivalries on tap, long winning streaks at stake and plenty of postseason implications
on the line.

The No. 3 Razorbacks and top-ranked Tigers get the weekend started Friday with a game that has turned out to be as relevant to the conference and national championship pictures as the much-hyped LSU-Alabama showdown three weeks ago.
