Ole Hotty Toddy's SEC Power Rankings 2/18

1. Florida (21-3, 11-1)

The Gators looked strong in their win over Kentucky, then blew out Auburn. They look to be in heavy contention for a 1 seed.

LW: 1

This week: 2/19 @ Mizzou, 2/23 Arkansas

2. Alabama (17-8, 9-3)

Alabama has benefitted from a cupcake section of their schedule and they will need to continue to win those games in preparation for their back-to-back road trips with Florida and Ole Miss.

LW: 5

This week: 2/20 Mississippi State, 2/23 @ LSU

3. Ole Miss (19-6, 8-4)

Ole Miss dropped a heartbreaker in College Station, but showed good resiliency in a comeback win over the Dawgs in OT.

LW: 3

This week: 2/20 @ South Carolina, 2/23 Auburn

4. Kentucky (17-8, 8-4)

First the Wildcats lost Nerlens Noel for the season in a loss to Florida, then they lost by 30 to Tennessee. Something tells me their descent on this list will continue.

LW: 2

This week: 2/20 Vanderbilt, 2/23 Mizzou

5. Arkansas (16-9, 7-5)

Arkansas moved their home SEC record to 6-0 while also winning their first road SEC game this year.

LW: 7

This week: 2/21 UGA, 2/23 @ Florida

6. Missouri (18-7, 7-5)

The Tigers slaughtered Mississippi State, but who hasn’t these days?

LW: 4

This week: 2/19 Florida, 2/23 @ Kentucky

7. Tennessee (14-10, 6-6)

A 12-point win against the Commodores followed by a 30-point blowout of Kentucky? Good week for the Vols.

LW: 9

This week: 2/19 LSU, 2/23 @ Texas A&M

8. LSU (15-8 6-6)

A pair of blowout wins over the SEC’s cellar-dwellers. LSU’s got it a lot tougher from here on out.

LW: 8

This week: 2/19 @ Tennessee, 2/23 Alabama

9. Georgia (12-13, 6-6)

Georgia hasn’t had a loss as tough as their one to Ole Miss in awhile.

LW: 6

This week: 2/21 @ Arkansas, 2/23 South Carolina

10. Texas A&M (15-10, 5-7)

Kept their reputation of being giant killers, but coming up small the rest of the time.

LW: 10

This week: 2/20 @ Auburn, 2/23 Tennessee

11. Vanderbilt (10-14, 4-8)

Vanderbilt has a reasonable schedule to where they can end the season 8-10 to gain momentum for 2013-14.

LW: 11

This week: 2/20 @ Kentucky, 2/23 @ Mississippi State

12. Auburn (9-16, 3-9)

Caught a drubbing by the Gators, but at least they have USC and Mississippi State.

LW: 12

This week: 2/20 Texas A&M, 2/23 @ Ole Miss

13. South Carolina (12-13, 2-10)

Lost six straight, and only once has it been by single-digits.

LW: 13

This week: 2/20 Ole Miss, 2/23 @ UGA

14. Mississippi State (7-17, 2-10)

Lost by 42 at home to Mizzou. Uninspired to say the least.

LW: 14

This week: 2/20 @ Alabama, 2/23 Vanderbilt
