Who's hot and who's not in the SEC heading into college football's Week 10

Who's Hot

Jarvis Jones: The Bulldogs' junior linebacker had 13 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, three sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in Georgia's win over Florida. His 22 sacks in 20 career games over the last two years leads all active players (1.1 a game).

Jeremy Hill: LSU's freshman running back is coming off a bye looking to pick up where he left off the last two games, where he shredded S. Carolina and Texas A&M for a combined 251 yards and 3 TDs.

Hugh Freeze: Ole Miss' first-year coach has the young Rebels gunning for bowl eligibility with four games left. Ole Miss, which had lost 14 straight SEC games before Freeze took over, has won two straight.

Who's Not

Marcus Lattimore: South Carolina's junior running back now has a dislocated right knee and ligament damage a year after tearing his left ACL. Lattimore will likely return for his senior season but not after having to go through another long, grueling rehabilitation process.

Jeff Driskel: Florida's sophomore quarterback broke his streak of three straight games of less than 100 passing yards, but put the ball on the ground three times and threw two picks in a key loss to Georgia.

Auburn defense: The Tigers' defense gave up 671 yards to Texas A&M last week, the most in school history. Meanwhile, the 63 points it surrendered is the most scored on Auburn since Ga. Tech's 68 in 1917.
