Who's hot and who's not in the SEC heading into college football's Week 11

Who's Hot

Adrian Hubbard: Alabama's sophomore linebacker had a game-high 12 tackles, 2.5 for losses and a sack in the team's big win over LSU. The SEC Defensive Player of the Week was in on a fourth-and-1 stop with the Tigers at the Tide 24. He leads Alabama in sacks (4) and tackles for loss (8).

Aaron Murray: Georgia's junior quarterback was on fire last week, going 21-for-28 for 384 yards and 4 TDs against Ole Miss. He was 13-of-15 in the second half, finding 11 different receivers. He hit four different guys on his four touchdown tosses.

Florida defense: The nation's fifth-ranked defense continues to come up big despite the struggles of its 102nd-ranked offense. The unit nearly erased six turnovers to Georgia, then forced four last week.

Who's Not

Joker Phillips: It was announced on Sunday that Kentucky's coach will not be returning next season after the team's 40-0 loss to Vanderbilt. Whoever steps into his shoes will have a hard time as Kentucky hasn't had a winning record since 1977.

James Franklin: Missouri's final six drives of the second half all reached or started in UF territory, but the Tigers' junior QB came away with no points each time. He threw four interceptions on the day, three of them coming in Gator territory.

Mississippi State: After starting the season 7-0, coach Dan Mullen's team has been hammered by Alabama and Texas A&M by a combined 76-20. Now, MSU has to face an angry LSU team in Death Valley.
