Here is my SEC Week 5 Recap
LSU 42 vs. Missouri 7
LSU bought into what Coach Orgeron was selling. You could feel the energy in Tiger Stadium on Saturday watching the game and LSU showed it with their performance on the field. The Tigers set a school record for yards in an SEC game with 634 total yards. LSU rushed for 418 yards. RB, Derrius Guice, who started for the injured Leonard Fournette, rushed for 163 yards and 3TDs; Darrel Williams rushed for 130 yards and scored 3TDs as well. The Tigers defense held Mizzou QB, Drew Lock, who leads the SEC in passing yards and touchdown passes to 17-of-37 for 167 yards, no TDs and an interception. Mizzou finished with one touchdown and just 265 yards. It appears that Coach “O” has ignited a spark in the “Bayou Bengals.”
Tennessee 34 vs. Georgia 31
I have officially named the 2016 Tennessee Vols the “Comeback Kids.” Tennessee is (5-0, 2-0, SEC) and has trailed by double-digits in four of those games before rallying to win. Saturday’s game against the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens was a game for the record books. Two TDs in the last 10 seconds of a game? The Vols scored on a 43-yard “Hail Mary” on the final play on the game to stun the Bulldogs. Georgia had taken the lead on a 47-yard pass from Jacob Eason to Riley Ridley with 10 seconds left. Every Georgia fan in Sanford stadium just knew that victory was at hand. However, an unsportsmanlike penalty on Georgia for celebrating the TD and later an offside penalty put Tennessee on the 43-yard line of Georgia. It gave Tennessee life to make one final play to win the game. Vols’ QB Joshua Dobbs threw the “Hail Mary” pass to WR Jauan Jennings went up and made the winning catch with three Georgia Bulldogs around him. This unbelievable catch became known as the “Hail Mary Between the Hedges.” Tennessee is 5-0 for the first time since 1998, when it won a national title.
