Ten SEC Games That Will Affect The Playoff

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports
Edward Aschoff with ESPN.com came up with a list of ten SEC games in 2014 that he think will have an affect on the College Football Playoff and LSU is included in 3 of the games.
quote:

1. Wisconsin vs. LSU (in Houston, Texas), Aug. 30:
If Wisconsin is going to push itself past Big Ten favorites Michigan State and Ohio State, the Badgers need to start off fast with a win against LSU. The Tigers have questions on both sides of the ball, but people will be salivating over seeing the matchup between Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and LSU's incredibly athletic front seven. These are the games LSU coach Les Miles thrives in, but Wisconsin won't be intimidated.

3. LSU at Auburn, Oct. 4:
Even though Auburn lost this game last season, it changed the dynamic of the team's season. The fight and comeback they had in the second half injected an incredible amount of confidence into an Auburn team that ran all the way to the final BCS title game. Could this game have the same affect for either squad in 2014? With the upcoming schedules both of these teams have, a loss here could throw off their playoff plans.

7. Alabama at LSU, Nov. 8:
Of course this game will affect the playoff. It's Alabama-LSU! Ever since Nick Saban arrived in Tuscaloosa in 2007, this game has been decided by less than 10 points six times. However, Alabama has won the past two by 21 points. Both of these teams will know a whole lot more about each other at this point in the season, and while Alabama could be at the top of the polls, LSU's young talent could become dangerous.
Complete list (in order of appearance):

1. Wisconsin vs. LSU (in Houston, Texas), Aug. 30
2. Georgia at South Carolina, Sept. 13
3. LSU at Auburn, Oct. 4
4. Alabama at Ole Miss, Oct. 4
5. South Carolina at Auburn, Oct. 25
6. Auburn at Ole Miss, Nov. 1
7. Alabama at LSU, Nov. 8
8. South Carolina at Florida, Nov. 15
9. Auburn at Georgia, Nov. 15
10. Auburn at Alabama, Nov. 29

I see a lot of Auburn and South Carolina in there and I don't feel like either will be in contention late in the season.

Mark this down: NO sec team will be unbeaten at seasons end... and possibly a 3-game loser in the sec championship game...brutal year for the SEC as we destroy each other...
