CFB Recap Week 12: SEC Conference

Our conference recaps are a great place to begin preparing for the week ahead in College Football as we take an in depth look at the week that was and dig into the situations that bear monitoring. Who's hot? Who's not? What are some situations to key in on or avoid? You can find the answers inside this week's recaps. Here's a sneak peek at our analysis of one of Week 12's games in the SEC:

Game Recap: It was a wild back and forth affair that saw stellar play from quarterbacks Dak Prescott and Brandon Allen, 14 total touchdowns and a walk-off win on a blocked field goal as Mississippi State prevailed 51-50.  
Key Players: Mississippi State – We’re running out of superlatives to describe the play of Dak Prescott, who was simply amazing again on Saturday. Prescott threw for 508 yards, five touchdowns and a pick and added on 46 rushing yards and two scores on the ground for good measure. As a whole, the Bulldogs had 631 total yards of offense. Brandon Holloway chipped in 164 combined yards and a score. Fred Ross and DeRunnya Wilson hauled in 10 passes apiece, with Ross contributing 154 yards and two touchdowns while Wilson had 93 yards and found the end zone once.  
Arkansas: The Razorbacks leaned heavily on the passing game and Brandon Allen delivered – and then some. Allen completed 30 of 43 for 406 yards, seven touchdowns and no picks. The running was mostly held in check in Saturday’s shootout as the team combined for 73 yards on the ground, mainly thanks to Alex Collins, who carried the ball 19 times for 53 yards. Tight end Hunter Henry led all receivers with seven catches for 129 yards and two scores, Drew Morgan chipped in 7/84/1 and Jared Cornelius contributed 5/81/1. Junior tight end Jeremy Sprinkle broke out with six catches for 47 yards and three touchdowns.  
Key Injuries: None.
Players to Watch: Mississippi State – The Bulldogs welcome Ole Miss to town for the Egg Bowl and what should be a highly-entertaining game this week. Prescott remains at the top of the short list for DFS and will likely be a popular target for what could be a high-scoring affair. Holloway should be considered as a GPP flier, while Wilson and Ross will work nicely as a stack with Prescott, with a nod to Wilson as the top receiving option.
Arkansas: The Razorbacks have a tough matchup with Missouri this Friday. Although Missouri can be tough defensively, it’s hard to disregard Allen with the way he has played this season. Collins is a little easier to take a pass on but still deserves consideration, although there will likely be more affordable options in better spots. Henry and Morgan remain the top options for a stack with Allen, but monitor the news on Morgan as he appeared to be playing in pain this past week.
