Wow, what a first weekend of football around the SEC. And it's not over yet, since Tennessee-Utah State will wrap up the weekend on Sunday. For now, though, let's recap some of what we've learned so far about the SEC of 2014.
The SEC has been pumping out internet memes lately. Over the weekend there was Gene Chizik staring down his daughter's prom date. Then during Monday night's basketball national championship game, rapper Drake's many sports allegiances (Kentucky among them) were on display.

Spring storylines abound this week around the SEC. Let's take a quick spin around the league to see what's happening. A Nashville group is working to put together an annual, high-profile non-conference game for SEC teams to be played at LP Field, possibly as early as 2016.

It's easy to understand the hype for this year's matchup of No. 1 Alabama and No. 4 Auburn. But imagine a game so huge that it sold out two stadiums at the same time. It's the 20th anniversary of the 1993 Iron Bowl, one of the most unusual matchups in the rivalry's history.

This could be moving day in the SEC East. At minimum, we'll be able to trim one team from the list of contenders for the division title. We know today's marquee game between longtime rivals Georgia and Florida -- both 4-3 overall and 3-2 in conference play -- is an elimination game in the division race.

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- What a difference a year makes. The Auburn team coming into Kyle Field today is much different from the one that hosted Texas A&M a year ago. Both teams are 5-1 and ranked in the top 25 (A&M is seventh, Auburn is 24th), and each has a head coach known for his innovative offensive mind (Gus Malzahn for Auburn; Kevin Sumlin for A&M), so it should be an entertaining and compelling 60 minutes in this SEC West Division clash.

AUBURN, Ala. -- Freshman quarterback Jeremy Johnson threw four touchdown passes on Saturday, earning SEC Freshman of the Week honors, but Auburn will turn the team back over to Nick Marshall this weekend when it visits Texas A&M, coach Gus Malzahn said.

The SEC East is like the Wild West, while Alabama is still in control of the West. Also, eight teams from the SEC are ranked in the AP poll. What a fun conference: 1. Alabama (6-0, 3-0 SEC; last week: 1): Twitter was ablaze with tweets concerning Alabama's slow start at Kentucky.
