It is officially championship week here on the SEC blog.
After a valiant comeback by the Young Guns, Over the Hill pulled off a clutch victory in our ESPN College Football Challenge by getting a 133-103 win last week in a must-win situation.
Chris' team went off last week thanks to 35-point performances by Alabama running back Trent Richardson and South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw. It didn't hurt that Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson dropped 365 yards and three touchdowns for another 26 points.
My leading point-scorer was LSU's defense, which racked up 27 points after stomping Ole Miss. It was a down week for my quarterbacks, but Auburn running back Michael Dyer came back strong with 21 points.
We're both tied with identical 6-6 records, so this weekend has the championship feel to it. And for that, we're making lineup changes so that we can get the best out of this weekend as possible.
Chris is dropping Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell, who just can't stay healthy, for LSU's Spencer Ware. He's also dropping South Carolina wide receiver Alshon Jeffery for Tennessee's Da'Rick Rogers, who has been on a tear.
For me, I'm dropping Dyer because of the Alabama defense matchup and will pick up Vanderbilt's Zac Stacy. He's been solid lately, and Wake Forest is giving up 151 rushing yards a game and has allowed 16 rushing touchdowns.
A lot of bragging rights are on the line right now, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't bitter about the picks. A win in fantasy could give me some much-needed momentum heading into bowl season.
