SEC Power Rankings after Week 4

1. Alabama (3-0, 1-0)

Colorado State was within a touchdown and a field goal of the Tide in the fourth quarter. Lapse inbetween key games or something to worry about in T-Town? I’ll say the former.

Last week: Defeated Colorado State 31-6

Last ranking: 1

This week: Ole Miss 5:30 p.m. CT

2. LSU (4-0, 1-0)

The Tigers geaux to Athens this week hoping for better weather than they dealt with in the Bayou on Saturday.

LW: Defeated Auburn 35-21

LR: 2

TW: at UGA 2:30 p.m.

3. Georgia (2-1, 1-0)

Mark Richt is 2-6 against Top 10 teams with Aaron Murray as his quarterback. That includes a loss in the last time these two teams played, the 2011 SEC Championship that saw LSU down UGA 42-10.

LW: Defeated North Texas 45-21

LR: 3

TW: LSU 2:30 p.m.

4. South Carolina (2-1, 1-1)

UCF has a stingy, stingy defense. That said, I still believe the Gamecocks roll in the Sunshine State.

LW: Bye

LR: 4

TW: at UCF 11:00 a.m.

5. Ole Miss (3-0, 1-0)

Vandy and Texas have been great wins for the Rebels, but they are a combined 4-4 currently. A win against Alabama would be the win that turns the Rebel Revival into another “riot” on the Oxford campus.

LW: Bye

LR: 5

TW: at Alabama 6:30 p.m.

6. Texas A&M (3-1, 0-1)

The four-game home stand is over with. A&M now travels to Fayetteville before a bye week and rematch in Oxford.

LW: Defeated SMU 42-13

LR: 6

TW: at Arkansas 6:00 p.m.

7. Florida (2-1, 1-0)

Losing Driskel for the year hurts, but won’t derail their Atlanta plans completely if the defense stays healthy.

LW: Defeated Tennessee 31-17

LR: 7

TW: at Kentucky 6:00 p.m.

8. Missouri (3-0)

The nonconference cupcake tour concludes next week with Arkansas State before road trips to Nashville and Athens show the world what the Tigers are made of.

LW: Defeated Indiana 45-28

LR: 10

TW: Arkansas State 6:30 p.m.

9. Vanderbilt (2-2, 0-2)

Jordan Matthews is from another planet. The screen pass touchdown against UMass is infamous.

LW: Defeated UMass 24-7

LR: 11

TW: UAB 6:30 p.m.

10. Auburn (3-1, 1-1)

Auburn is better than anticipated, but Nick Marshall still has more DB in him than QB in this writer’s humble opinion.

LW: Lost to LSU 35-21

LR: 9

TW: Bye

11. Arkansas (3-1)


LW: Lost to Rutgers 28-24

LR: 8

TW: Texas A&M 6:00 p.m.

12. Mississippi State (2-2, 0-1)

The Bulldogs continue their quest to win a second consecutive Sun Belt championship after beating Troy.

LW: Defeated Troy 62-7

LR: 13

TW: Bye

13. Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) 

Expect Tennessee to get back on track when South Alabama comes to tailgate.

LW: Lost to Florida 31-17

LR: 12

TW: South Alabama 11:21 a.m.

14. Kentucky (1-2) 

Can anyone from that No.1 basketball recruiting class play wideout?

LW: Bye

LR: 14

TW: Florida 6:00 p.m.
