Wild, wild SEC West set for historic day
Three teams from the Southeastern Conference's powerful Western Division are finally going down.
That much is assured on Saturday, when six teams ranked in the top 15 clash in an unprecedented day for any division in major college football.
First, No. 6 Texas A&M visits No. 12 Mississippi State. Then the action heads 100 miles north for an even bigger showdown: No. 3 Alabama at No. 11 Mississippi.
Later that night, No. 15 LSU visits No. 5 Auburn. It's only the fifth time a division has had two games featuring Top 25 matchups on the same day, according to STATS.
No division has had a Top 25 trifecta. The last time a conference had three ranked matchups was in the Big Ten on Oct. 18, 2003.
