No.4 Texas A&M Aggies (2-1, 0-0)
The Texas A&M Aggies (2-1, 0-0) picked up a win over 48-10 win over UL-Monroe (2-1) this past Saturday. ULM is not a ball football team and Jimbo Fisher and the Aggies took care of business. Thru three games the TAMU offense has put up 1,789 yards of total offense with 934 yards coming thru the air and 855 yards on the ground. Texas A&M is looking good on offense but they also look very good on defense.
In their first three game the Aggies defense has allowed 1,014 yards giving up 753 yards thru the air and just 261 yards on the ground. Besides the loss against Clemson the Aggies really haven’t played a competitive team but this weekend that changes as Jimbo Fisher goes against his old boss Nick Saban. The No.22 Aggies will be traveling to face No.1 Alabama (3-0, 1-0).
No.3 (7) Auburn Tigers (2-1, 0-1)
The No.7 Auburn Tigers fell in 22-21 heartbreaking loss to the No.12 LSU Tigers down on the plains. While many believed it would be a great game there were few who believed Auburn would come up short. Thru three games the Tigers have put up 1,315 yards of total offense with 609 yards coming thru the air and 706 yards coming on the ground. Gus Malzahn has a great team and still may wreck the SEC West despite the LSU loss.
Success for the rest of the Tigers season hinges greatly upon a very good defense. So far the Auburn defense has allowed 973 yards thru three games giving up 703 yards thru the air but only allowing 270 yards on the ground. With this defense and the Auburn offense Gus Malzahn has the recipe to stay in the hunt in the SEC West. The No.9 Auburn Tigers will be back in action at home as they host Arkansas (1-2, 0-0).
No.2 (1) Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0, 1-0)
The No.1 Alabama Crimson Tide (3-0, 0-1) picked up a 62-7 blowout win over the Ole Miss Rebels (2-1, 0-1) this past Saturday in Oxford. While the Tide offensive explosion came as no surprise the defense was very impressive against the Rebels nationally ranked offense. Thru the first three games in 2018 the Tide offense has put up 1,634 yards of total offense with 924 coming thru the air and 710 yards coming on the ground.
So far the Tide defense has allowed 907 yards giving up 603 thru the air and just 304 on the ground. While the win over Ole Miss was expected the defense answered many questions which Bama fans had. With Nick Saban and Tua Tagovailoa you know you are getting a tough offense but they weren’t really tested in their first three games. It will be interesting to see how the No.1 Crimson Tide perform this week as they host No.22 Texas A&M (2-1, 0-1).
No.1 (12) LSU Tigers (3-0, 1-0)
Of course the No.12 LSU Tigers (3-0, 1-0) knocked off the No.7 Auburn Tigers (2-1, 0-1) 22-21 on a last second FG to get the win. The win of course says a lot about this Tigers team who in three games has wins over two Top-10 teams. Ed Orgeron could have the best team we’ve seen in Red Stick in years. Thru the first three games the LSU offense has put up 1,001 yards of total offense with 540 yards coming thru the air and 461 yards on the ground.
While the LSU offense may not be as mesmerizing as other SEC offenses the defense is one of the best. So far the Orgeron/LSU defense has allowed 924 yards giving up 646 yards thru the air but only 278 yards on the ground. When you consider the difficulty of the Tigers first three games and the 2 Top-10 wins it appears this LSU Tigers team is for real. The No.6 LSU Tigers will be back in action Saturday as they host Louisiana Tech (2-0).
