Who's hot and who's not in the SEC heading into college football's Week 13

Who's Hot

James Franklin: Vanderbilt's coach beat in-state rival Tennessee so bad (41-18) that it prompted the Vols to can coach Derek Dooley before he could even coach a final game against Kentucky. He's got the Commodores at 7-4.

Tyler Russell: The year hasn't gone like Mississippi State wanted, but its QB is having the best year of any in school history. Russell now holds just about every major single-season passing record for MSU.

Cobi Hamilton: Arkansas' senior was in the running to be honored as the nation's top receiver, and he's been the best in the SEC all year. He set the league's single-game record for receiving yards (303) in Week 4.

Who's Not

Tyler Wilson: As the SEC's top passer, Arkansas' Tyler Wilson has been mighty unimpressive. He's had four games all year with more TDs than INTs — three in his first three games. He's had seven interceptions in his last four games.

Cordarrelle Patterson: The Vols' receiver was flagged for excessive celebration for the second straight week after a TD. An ineligible man downfield would've negated it anyway, but it's inexcusable.

Missouri: The Tigers lost to a Big East team at home with a chance to secure a trip to a bowl game in its first SEC season. Mizzou, which gave up 508 yards of offense to Syracuse, let a 14-point lead slip away.
