On Saturday, Chris Todd will lead his unbeaten Auburn football team into Arkansas, shooting for a sixth straight win to begin the season.
In Mississippi, Brandon Deaderick will be looking to keep Alabama riding its fast start to the season. Like rival Auburn, Alabama is unbeaten in five starts in 2009.
And in Columbia, S.C., Zipp Duncan and LaRod King will try to keep Kentucky from losing its third straight game after opening the season 2-0.
All four players play college football in the powerful Southeastern Conference.
