SEC East overshadowed by more powerful West
ATHENS, Ga. - An important Southeastern Conference Eastern Division showdown is being overshadowed this week by another deluge of compelling SEC West games.
The only ranked teams from the SEC East will meet on Saturday when No. 13 Georgia visits No. 23 Missouri in a game which could provide some clarity in the muddled East race. The game has been set for an early 11 a.m. CDT kickoff as if to serve as a warm-up for offerings from the West - the nation's most powerful division.
Georgia receiver Michael Bennett insists he's not insulted by the powerful West overshadowing the East in the regular season. He says the East will have its chance to shine in the SEC championship game.
