Weekend Games (3/8-9)

It's the final weekend of the regular season and 4 teams - Florida, Ole Miss, Kentucky, and Arkansas - are resting squarely on the bubble. Other teams are jockeying for position in next weekend's SEC Tourney. Here's what's in store...

LSU @ Mississippi State

LSU's streaking right now, having won 4 in a row. That comes to a screeching halt Saturday in Strakville. Bulldogs roll.

Vanderbilt @ Alabama
While there are some serious matchup issues for the Commodores in this one, they'll get it done in what could be Mark Gottfried's regular season finale.

Auburn @ Arkansas
The Hogs need a statement win to solidify their Dance invite. This is as good a game as any to do it. Hogs roll.

Ole Miss @ Georgia
Even though they're somehow 0-7 on the road in conference play, I see the Rebels getting it done here. If they lose they're not dancing and they realize that.

Florida @ Tennessee

A win and the Gators are probably back in the Dance. Too bad that won't happen on Chris Lofton's Senior Day.

South Carolina @ Kentucky
A win here would lock up and unlikely 2nd place finish in the East for the 'Cats. USC plays inspired for Dave Odom's regular season finale, but it's not enough in Lexington.
