Texas A&M, which is slated to compete in the SEC at least this year, didn’t do much of that in the first two games. It was a nondescript five-point home win over Vanderbilt, followed by a mostly uncompetitive loss in four touchdowns in Alabama last weekend. The main problem for the Aggies, especially against the Crimson Tide, was pass defense – Mac Jones completed 20 for 27 passes for 435 yards and four touchdowns. Now Texas receives A&M Florida and quarterback Kyle Trask, who completed 71.8 percent of his passes, threw 10 touchdowns and only has one interception. Tight end Kyle Pitts has scored six of these hits. As the ESPN gambling crew notes, the Gators under coach Dan Mullen are 7-0 favorites on the road, winning every game with at least eight points and giving six points on Saturday. …

Useful information! Which team has the SEC’s longest winning streak after eight games? No, it’s not Alabama and the defending champions LSU have already lost one season this season. The answer is Tennessee, which hasn’t lost in nearly a calendar year. Coach Jeremy Pruitt is letting the Vols crawl back towards national relevance, which has not been said since the Phillip Fulmer era. (Somehow, Tennessee last ended a season as a top 10 team in 2001.) It’s probably too early to declare the Vols totally back – they didn’t beat a ranked team or a particularly good team in those eight straight wins – but Tennessee could take a big step forward with a win in Georgia. The Vols haven’t beaten a top-10 team since beating the Bulldogs in 2006, a run of 33 straight losses, but they could put Georgia in a good spot sandwiched between games against Auburn and Alabama . But the Bulldogs only allowed 16 points in two games and could have the stingiest defense in the nation. …

Clemson has owned just about every ACC team in the past few years (except Syracuse, oddly enough) but few more than Miami: the Tigers won their last two games against the Hurricanes with a combined 96-3. Even so, Miami will test the Tigers like no other team this season. Clemson had to replace four starters on the offensive line, which gave quarterback Trevor Lawrence a little less time to do what he does, and Miami was somewhat adept at getting down to quarterback. There’s also Hurricanes quarterback D’Eriq King who hasn’t intercepted yet.
