Week 8 of the college football season is underway, and the SEC has a light schedule this weekend. Alabama is the only one of its four ranked teams in action, and we only have four games in total. Auburn-Ole Miss played at noon, and with the help of a controversial replay booth call Auburn came away with a 35-28 victory.

Alabama-Tennessee gets underway at 3:30, Kentucky-Missouri kicks off at 4, and South Carolina-LSU wraps up the day with kickoff at 7. Alabama then whipped Tennessee yet again, this time it was 48-17 in Knoxville. And Missouri got their second win with a 20-10 victory over Kentucky.

And finally LSU got back on track with a 52-24 win over South Carolina, putting Will Muschamp right back on the hotseat.
