SEC Power Rankings Week 6

1. LSU (38-4, 15-3)

After winning a road series in Tuscaloosa over the weekend, the Tigers don’t play on the road until the middle of May.

LW: 1

This week: 4/24 Tulane, 4/26-28 South Carolina

2. Vanderbilt (35-6, 16-2)

Not an impressive week for the Commodores with back-to-back losses to Tennessee Tech and Georgia.

LW: 2

This week: 4/23 @ Louisville, 4/26-28 Mississippi State

3. South Carolina (31-10, 11-7)

Rebounded from last weekend’s debacle with a home sweep of Kentucky, next up is a goliath series in the Bayou.

LW: 6

This week: 4/23 @ Gardner-Webb, 4/26-28 @ LSU

4. Ole Miss (29-12, 10-8)

A rough midweek for the Rebels with losses to Memphis and Southern Miss, but a second consecutive SEC sweep bumps them up.

LW: 7

This week: 4/23 @ Arkansas State, 4/25-27 Kentucky

5. Florida (22-19, 10-8)

UF avenged an earlier loss to FGCU with a win in Fort Meyers in the midweek, a ho-hum series win in Columbia capped the week.

LW: 4

This week: 4/23 USF, 4/26-28 Tennessee

6. Mississippi State (32-10, 10-8)

A make-it-or-break-it week ahead for the Bulldogs, escaping at 2-2 or better will be impressive.

LW: 5

This week: 4/23 @ Memphis, 4/26-28 @ Vanderbilt

7. Arkansas (27-15, 11-7)

Three losses in one week for the Razorbacks is not great, but a road-trip to Athens might do the trick.

LW: 3

This week: 4/23 Oklahoma, 4/26-28 @ Georgia

8. Alabama (24-18, 9-9)

Alabama broke a five-game SEC losing streak with an extra-innings win over LSU on Sunday, one of the Tigers’ three conference losses.

LW: 9

This week: 4/24 @ Southern Miss, 4/26-28 Texas A&M

9. Kentucky (24-15, 7-11)

The wheels are off in Lexington as the Wildcats have lost six-in-a-row and have dropped 8 of their last 9 conference games.

LW: 8

This week: 4/23 @ Western Kentucky, 4/25-27 @ Ole Miss

10. Auburn (24-16, 6-12)

Auburn almost won its third straight SEC series but fell behind in Game 2 on Saturday in Starkville and got shut out in Game 3.

LW: 11

This week: 4/26-28 @ Missouri

11. Texas A&M (22-19, 7-11)

Like Kentucky, the Aggies are reeling and will need a 3-1 road week to salvage any momentum heading into the home stretch.

LW: 12

This week: 4/23 @ Texas State, 4/26-28 @ Alabama

12. Missouri (13-22, 5-13)

Mizzou closes the conference season with a manageable slate, playing Auburn, Texas A&M, Alabama and Kentucky with none of the four above .500 in-conference.

LW: 13

This week: 4/23 Murray State, 4/24 Missouri State, 4/26-28 Auburn

13. Tennessee (17-21, 5-13)

The Vols have now been swept in three of their last four series.

LW: 10

This week: 4/23 @ Middle Tennessee State, 4/26-28 @ Florida

14. Georgia (15-26, 4-14)

The Friday victory over Vanderbilt is easily the highlight of the atrocity that is the 2013 Bulldog baseball season.

LW: 14

This week: 4/23 *Georgia Tech (Turner Field in Atlanta), 4/26-28 Arkansas
