Congrats Arkansas for fighting out of the cellar with a remarkable 38-37 comeback at Ole Miss. Not so fast, you other three. Mizzou has a cleat on the top step — can it beat Florida in disarray? Tennessee had a come-from-ahead loss at Kentucky. Vandy still isn’t good at football but is tops in Latin declensions.
