The first of the two major SEC matchups of the day went Georgia’s way — by a lot. The defending national champion Bulldogs, ranked third, pushed around No. 1 Tennessee in a 27-13 victory in Athens.

In addition to making a major statement, the Bulldogs also gave themselves the inside track to win the SEC East once again.

As for tonight’s matchup between No. 6 Alabama and No. 10 LSU in Baton Rouge, it will play a big role in deciding the SEC West race.

Another top team, No. 4 Clemson, is on upset alert against Notre Dame as the action continues on a loaded Saturday slate.

Let’s see what the rest of the day has in store.

Time: 7 p.m. | TV: ESPN | Line: Alabama -13.5 | Total: 56.5

As consequential as the Tennessee-Georgia game is for the SEC East, the Alabama-LSU game is for the SEC West. LSU, Ole Miss and Alabama are all tied for first place in the division with 4-1 SEC records, so whoever wins this one will be in tremendous position to get to the SEC title game. LSU’s offense seems to have taken a big step forward in recent weeks, but it’ll be a tough task to try to keep up with a potent Alabama team coming off a bye week.

Time: 7 p.m. | TV: FS1 | Line: UT -2.5 | Total: 54.5

Though TCU is sitting alone in first place in the Big 12, Kansas State has a chance to significantly bolster its chance of getting to the Big 12 title game with Texas visiting on Saturday. K-State has played without starting QB Adrian Martinez for the last two weeks and it’s unclear if he’ll be back for this one. His backup, Will Howard, has performed admirably in Martinez’s absence. Texas, meanwhile, still has a shot at the Big 12 title game, but that will have to start with a win this week.

Time: 7:30 p.m. | TV: NBC | Line: Clemson -3.5 | Total: 44.5

Clemson is 8-0 and in the thick of the playoff race with four games to play. This trip to Notre Dame won’t have any bearing on the ACC race, but Clemson needs this win to get back to the College Football Playoff. In Clemson’s last outing, Dabo Swinney pulled starting QB DJ Uiagalelei after Clemson fell behind Syracuse. Will Uiagalelei have another short leash if he struggles in South Bend? Notre Dame, meanwhile, has had an up-and-down year in Marcus Freeman’s first season as head coach. The Irish started 0-2 but have since won five of their last six. Which version of the Irish will show up Saturday?
