7 at 7: Links from around the SEC

rblack@ledger-enquirer.comSeptember 18, 2013 

AUBURN, Ala. — It's Wednesday, so let's dive in to some links from around the SEC.

1. The last time Tennessee beat Florida was 2004. In order to stop that skid this week, the Volunteers might have to do it with a new quarterback. After just three games, head coach Butch Jones is reopening the competition at quarterback.

2. In injury news, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is day-to-day due to a foot injury. However, it is not serious enough that it will cause him to miss any games at this point, according to the coaching staff.

3. South Carolina's offense is playing about as well as it can heading into the team's bye week. And after relying on its defense so often since he took over, that undoubtedly has to please Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier.

4. Georgia is looking to shore up areas that need improvement this Saturday against North Texas. The Bulldogs will attempt to make these corrections while trying to avoid looking ahead to next week's matchup versus LSU.

5. One of Vanderbilt's best players is gone. After pleading guilty for his role in the coverup of a rape on campus, wide receiver Chris Boyd was dismissed on Tuesday.

6. Alabama versus Texas A&M more than lived up to the billing last week. AggiesSports.com takes a deeper look into the numbers between quarterbacks AJ McCarron and Johnny Manziel.

7. Alabama's tight ends and H-backs are coming along as well as the coaching staff could have hoped. Last week against Texas A&M, the group combined to catch seven passes for 95 yards.
