Here’s what The Nashville Tennessean had to say on possible Music City Bowl matchups before the Egg Bowl. …

Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received death threats in the wake of his not-so-good day against Auburn. Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley is of the opinion the threats aren’t coming from genuine supporters of the Roll Tide gospel.

Here’s some Celebrity reaction to Auburn’s win over Alabama.  …

The Alabama loss opens the door for Ohio State, assuming the Buckeyes win one more game. It won’t be easy. Ohio State nearly lost to a seven win Michigan team on Saturday.

The No. 2 Buckeyes are on the road agains this weekend at No. 10 Michigan State, their highest-ranked opponent this season. Northwestern, now 4-7, was No. 16 when Ohio State won 40-30 at Northwestern on Oct. 5. The week prior the Buckets defeated then-No. 23 Wisconsin 31-24 in Columbus. The Badgers are 9-3 after losing to Penn State and ranked No. 21 now.

Auburn AD Jay Jacobs says a one-loss SEC team belongs in the national championship game regardless of who has played who, who has what record of what goes on elsewhere.

Let the Ohio State-SEC debate begin.
