SEC College Football Schedule, Week 9: Tennessee Volunteers Vs. No. 20 South Carolina Gamecocks

If the 2010 Tennessee Volunteers are the Germans, Steve Spurrier is Japan’s 昭和天皇, who lost a week* after taking one great shot at a sleeping giant that just wanted to lumber through the regular season without anybody noticing. Axis powers collide in Columbia on the SEC Network!

The South Carolina Gamecocks have a decent defense, HB Marcus Lattimore, and QB Stephen Garcia’s good days, while the Vols are laying up treasures in heaven and tons of experience for 2012 after getting flattened by the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide. If not for an overtime squeaker against the UAB Dragons, Tennessee would be 1-6 right now. Then again if not for a sliiight miscalculation they would’ve out Les’d the LSU Tigers.

‘Cock Nation still has the SEC East title on its mind, and a spot in the Georgia Dome is entirely theirs to lose. With a win over Tennessee Saturday, they’d need nothing more than for Ol’ Ball 昭和天皇 to beat his former Gators for the first time since 2005.

TV time: 12:21 on SEC Network.
