Chaos reigned supreme in the SEC last week. No. 6 LSU, No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 11 South Carolina, No. 15 Georgia, and No. 22 Florida all went down in flames. Suddenly we're looking at a Missouri vs. Alabama SEC championship game if the Tide emerges from the Iron Bowl unscathed.

Prevost: Handing out midseason grades in the SEC

Unbelievably, we're just about halfway through the college football season. After six weekends of college football in the South, this much is certain: your Bloody Mary recipe should be perfected by now. But, if not, you've still got time to make the grade.

Clausen: Trojans, Spartans lead power ratings after solid starts
