CFB: (8) Mizzou at (24) Ole Miss

Even if Alabama beats Auburn in the Iron Bowl, its work isn't done. The Crimson Tide then must play in the SEC Championship Game, against an SEC East winner that just might be Missouri. But the Tigers have a lot of work to do to get to Atlanta, starting Saturday at Ole Miss and, if they beat the Rebels, ending next week at home against Texas A&M. James Franklin returns from injury to retake his spot under center. Will he lead the Tigers to the two wins they need?

CFB: (5) Missouri vs. (21) S. Carolina

Everything has been breaking right for Missouri. A perfect 7-0 record and back-to-back wins over slumping Florida and Georgia teams have the Tigers sitting pretty in the SEC East. Two ranked teams remain on the schedule, starting with Steve Spurrier's South Carolina team that is coming off a disappointing loss to Tennessee. Do you believe in the Tigers, or are they simply benefiting from good timing? Should they meet Alabama in the SEC championship game, could they hold their own?

CFB: (22) Florida at (14) Missouri

What a week for the Missouri Tigers. On one hand, they traveled to Georgia and beat the Bulldogs, catapulting them up the rankings and keeping them undefeated. On the other, they lost quarterback James Franklin for at least a few weeks, putting their fledgling SEC East title hopes in jeopardy. Speaking of SEC East title hopes, the Florida Gators' took a hit with an uninspiring loss to the LSU Tigers a week ago. Which team leaves better off?

CFB: (2) Oregon at (16) Washington

What a weekend for the Washington Huskies, who almost pulled the upset at No. 5 Stanford. Now, all Steve Sarkisian's team must do is brush off the disappointment -- and the fake-injury controversy -- to face what might be the most impressive team in the nation this season. Yep, the Oregon Ducks just keep flying; they haven't scored less than 55, nor have they allowed more than 16. Yikes.

CFB: (25) Missouri at (7) Georgia

On Saturday, Georgia barely escaped on the road against struggling Tennessee. The Bulldogs' reward? A home date with the hot (and healthy) Missouri Tigers in what suddenly is a hugely meaningful SEC East matchup. Is Missouri legit? Should Georgia fans be worried about what happened in Knoxville, Tenn.?
