We've got our second offensive lineman SEC trash talk of the season.

In an interview with CSN Northwest, Oregon offensive lineman Jake Fisher sarcastically said that "No one beats the SEC" and said that SEC players were "all really big and scary" and that Oregon was intimidated in advance of their Saturday matchup against Tennessee.

Yes, Fisher was kidding. Before the first week of the season, Oklahoma State offensive lineman Parker Graham questioned the conditioning of SEC defensive lines before the Cowboys played Mississippi State.

Though let's not kid ourselves here. Tennessee is a far cry from Alabama or LSU or Texas A&M. The Vols were 5-7 last season and enter Oregon as a four touchdown underdog. And the same goes for the matchup between Oklahoma State and Mississippi State. The Cowboys won that game 21-3.
