Game Roundup: The Tide Rolls, LSU Wins, And Phillips’ Seat Warms At UK

Here’s your Labor Day breakdown of each and every SEC game played this weekend.

 

Friday

Tennessee 35, NC State 21 in Atlanta

Key Stat:  524 yards.  That’s how impressive the Vol offense was in the Georgia Dome on Friday night.  Quarterback Tyler Bray and receivers Justin Hunter and Cordarrelle Patterson put on a show that will keep defensive coordinators up at night.  UT had five plays of 20 or more yards including a 41-yard TD pass, a 72-yard TD pass, and a 67-yard end-around TD run.

Quick Takes:

* In what was a huge game for hot-seated coach Derek Dooley, his team came out and showed that they’re no longer a paper thin bunch of freshmen and sophomores.  For the first time in his three years as coach, the Vols have some depth, some maturity, and some superior athletes.

* The Vols’ rushing numbers were aided by the aforementioned end-around and there’s still a need for Tennessee to show that they can run the ball between the tackles consistently.  Too often, Bray was called upon to save the day with a third-and-long play.

* For his part, Bray’s 333 yards passing might have been his best performance as a Volunteer.  Not only did pick apart NC State’s secondary with play-action bombs, but he also wisely checked the ball down, dumped it to a back, or through it away.  For the first time, Bray’s decision-making equaled his talented right arm.

 Tennessee Video Highlights

Saturday

Georgia 45, Buffalo 23 in Athens

Key Stat:  199 yards.  That’s how many rushing yards UGA’s injury/suspension-riddled defense allowed to Buffalo.  Repeat… Buffalo.  The Dawg D will have to be much, much better when they step onto the field at Missouri on Saturday.

Quick Takes:

* Freshman tailback Todd Gurley rushed for 100 yards, returned a kickoff for another hundred, and scored three touchdowns in his debut.  As unveilings go, it was an electrifying performance.  After the game, Richt deadpanned: “He averaged about what he averaged every scrimmage, about 12.5 yards per carry.  I hope that’s a trend in his career.”

* Alex Zordich complete 14 of 24 passes against UGA’s secondary and he rushed for 83 yards on 14 carries.  Missouri’s dual-threat QB James Franklin has to be licking his chops hoping that Todd Grantham didn’t hold his guys back with vanilla defenses.

Arkansas 49 – Jacksonville State 24

1. Quarterback Tyler Wilson sets the school record for passing yards in a season opener.

2. A healthy Knile Davis returns to action – 18 carries for 70 yards.

4. John L. Smith: “Our expectations are to do better than we did.”

Ole Miss 49 – Central Arkansas 27

5. Rebels have to rally – down 20-14 at half.

6. Offensive coordinator Dan Werner: “I thought we played really well in the second half.”

7. 35-7 second half binge.  Hugh Freeze at halftime: “I want our offense to score 35 points in the second half and I want our defense to shut them out.”

8. An emotional day for the new head coach: “I was a bit overwhelmed by the Walk of Champions.”

SEC Game Previews – 8/31/12

Here’s your rundown of the Week One SEC games scheduled for tonight, tomorrow and Sunday.  Everything from kickoff times, to odds, to our keys for each game are listed.

Good luck to your favorite school:

 

TONIGHT

Tennessee vs NC State at Atlanta

7:30pm ET on ESPNU

Opening Line:  UT -7

Current Line:  UT -3

Storylines:  Derek Dooley enters Year Three of his tenure squarely on the hot seat.  His team quit on him in its 2011 finale.  If the Volunteers can’t win in Atlanta tonight, will his team be ready to pack it in before the season really gets rolling?

Keys for Tennessee:  The Volunteers need an improved running game to help take the pressure off of quarterback Tyler Bray and D-Coordinator Sal Sunseri’s brand new 3-4 defense.  Facing a veteran NCSU secondary, Bray has to make good decisions in the passing game.

Pick:  NC State 28-27

Wallace Gets The QB Start, But Freeze Says He’s Still Got Co-Number Ones At Ole Miss

So much for Bo Wallace beating out Barry Brunetti for the starting job.  Oh, sure, he’ll start for the Rebels against Central Arkansas in their opener, but after that… Hugh Freeze says all bets are off:

 

“To me it’s still ‘co’ (starters).  Bo will take the first series and we’ll see how he will do, but Barry will get his chances, too.  To me it is about who can move our football team and produce over the first couple of weeks…

I think it’s a good thing if you’re looking over your shoulder.  A lot of people don’t.  I think they better know they have to compete and they have to produce.  I want them focused on what their job is and do your job and do it well.  If you do that, you don’t have to worry about a whole lot.”

 

Not against Central Arkansas, anyway.
