Who's hot and who's not in the SEC heading into college football's Week 9

Who's Hot

AJ McCarron: It's about time we give Alabama's junior QB some love. He's thrown 16 TDs with 0 INTs and has the best QB rating in the country. He had that prolific game that a lot of people wanted out of him last week, throwing for over 300 yards and four TDs, granted it was against Tennessee.

Damontre Moore: Texas A&M's defensive end had 10 tackles, two for a loss, a sack, a pass deflection and QB hurry in a loss to LSU. Moore leads the nation in sacks (1.36 per game) and tackles for loss (2.43).

Florida special teams: The Gators are getting it done in every area of this unit from kicker Caleb Sturgis to punter Kyle Christy, who leads the nation in punting average (47.49 yards). Plus, the unit caused three fumbles last week.

Who's Not

Clint Moseley: Auburn's junior QB was handed a chance to give the Tigers a much-needed win last week when Vandy RB Zac Stacy fumbled with 2:24 left and Auburn down 17-13. Moseley only moved the team 24 yards before overthrowing an open receiver on fourth-and-13 with 52 seconds left.

“Gurshall”: Georgia's RB duo of freshmen Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, all the rave entering October, have combined for only 146 rushing yards the last two games, a beating at the hands of S. Carolina and a narrow win over Kentucky.

Connor Shaw: In the biggest game of his life, S. Carolina's junior QB coughed it up on his own 2-yard line on the game's first play. He went 9-of-20 passing for 72 yards before being benched at halftime.
