We had five burning questions we were looking to answers to over the weekend. Here's what we found out in a wild Week 11 of SEC play.
A: He did it again. This time he erased any doubters with a huge game against Alabama. He completed 24 of 31 passes (77.4 percent) for 253 yards, two TDs and no INTs. He added 18 carries for 92 yards. Amazingly, those are considered somewhat "normal" stats for Manziel, but there's nothing ordinary about putting those type of numbers up on Alabama's defense.
A: His numbers weren't bad (21 of 34 for 309 yards, TD, 2 INTs), but the two INTs jump off the page. He came into the game with no INTs. Even when McCarron struggled against LSU last week, he still took care of the football. The same couldn't be said on Saturday. He's still playing at a high level overall, but a couple of his errors were part of what made Alabama vulnerable on Saturday.
A: Both are in huge trouble after Saturday. Reports have already started leaking from Tennessee and Auburn that both of these coaches are likely out after the season. Chizik and Dooley were on extremely shaky ground before Saturday and both lost again. The Vols fell to Missouri, 51-48, in four OTs. Auburn was blown out by Georgia, 38-0. It seems to be a matter of when, not if, these two coaches are gone.
A: LSU proved to be above the Bulldogs in the SEC West pecking order with a convincing 37-17 win. Both were coming off losses last week, but it was the Tigers, a team that might be playing their best football of the season right now, that bounced back this week. Coach Dan Mullen has done a good job at Mississippi State overall, but three consecutive losses to SEC West powers Alabama, Texas A&M and LSU have put a damper on some of the early-season enthusiasm in Starkville.
A: The Commodores are now bowl eligible after pulling out a 27-26 win at Ole Miss on Saturday. Vanderbilt will make only its sixth bowl appearance in school history, but its second consecutive one under coach James Franklin. Ole Miss isn't out of the hunt, though. The Rebels need to win one of their final two games against LSU or Mississippi State. If they do, they'll head to a bowl for the first time since 2009.
