Who's hot and who's not in the SEC heading into college football's Week 6

Who's Hot

Johnny Manziel: Texas A&M's QB set an SEC record with 557 total offensive yards in the team's win over Arkansas last week, its first in the SEC. He also threw a school-record 453 passing yards. The redshirt freshman has thrown 10 TDs with no interceptions so far this year.

Georgia offense: Aaron Murray is third in the SEC in passing, and freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall have combined for 964 rushing yards and 14 TDs. UGA has scored 40 or more in all five games.

Jadeveon Clowney: South Carolina's sophomore defensive end was named SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week. He's having a big year with 5.5 sacks in five games and it looks like he'll easily surpass his total of eight from last year.

Who's Not

Knile Davis: The Razorbacks' junior running back is only averaging 3.3 yards a carry and has fumbled in each of the past two weeks. He scored on a 64-yard TD reception last week, but his broken ankle last year has set him back.

Tennessee defense: In just two SEC games against Florida and Georgia, the Vols have given up 88 total points, at least 555 total yards in both games and five TD plays of 50 yards or more. The Vols are giving up more yards a game (425.8) than every SEC team except for Arkansas.

Zach Mettenberger: LSU's QB hasn't done his part to prevent the offense from being one-dimensional with mediocre play and his habit of missing open guys. He's been sacked 11 times, and he's fumbled three times the last two weeks.
