This week’s SEC games weren’t a lot to talk about. While the likes of Alabama, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida were blowing out FCS opposition (and Auburn was struggling for a lot of its game with Samford), Ole Miss travelled to Arkansas was absolutely shelled by the Razorbacks. Speaking of shelling, Mississippi State dropped 50 on Vanderbilt, while Missouri moved one game closer to the SEC Championship Game with a win over Tennessee.

Anyway, here’s our top-to-bottom SEC Power Rankings, folks.

1) Alabama

A hard-fought game against Western Carolina at the start, then the Crimson Tide started to roll. 

2) Mississippi State

Slaughtering Vanderbilt might not get any love from the rankings, but hey, at least it wasn’t a directional Carolina.

3) Georgia

We simply can’t believe – still – that UGA lost to South Carolina and Florida. But it’s true that the 3rd-best team in our Power Rankings might not make Atlanta because a team they smashed on the road has a better defense in bigger games.

4) Ole Miss

Pretty horrible in all areas in Fayetteville, the Rebels are going to have to rebound quickly for the Egg Bowl.

5) Missouri

Terrific defense covered up manageable offense and pretty horrible special teams. The Tigers ‘D’ is for real, though.

6) Auburn

It might seem weird to have them a mid-table SEC team, but Auburn has played horribly for three weeks in a row. And in the last of the three, Samford didn’t lift any gloom. Everyone in Jordan-Hare seemed miserable.

7) Arkansas

At the moment, there’s no team on better form than the Razorbacks, after consistent shut-out wins against LSU and Ole Miss. Should be a heck of a showdown at Missouri on Friday.

8) Texas A&M

#FireMarkSnyder, as Aggie Twitter aficionados might say. Or will probably say.

9) LSU

With all that talent, LSU STILL can’t seem to recruit a good quarterback. And before you ask Anthony Jennings certainly isn’t him.

10) South Carolina

The Gamecocks aren’t very good. They should be higher than this, but they can’t play defense. A solid performance against a FCS team won’t change that – although it might increase confidence prior to the Clemson game.

11) Florida

I’m beginning to believe – as Vegas seems to – that the Gators are going to give FSU a hell of a game this weekend. Particularly with that strong running game they have.

12) Tennessee

Playing “Turn Down For What” on every 3rd down the defense faces might work out. You know, if the defense could have made a stop on third down. Which they didn’t. Almost all night long. A lot of people will blame the fact that the Vols couldn’t do any stopping on the suspension of star linebacker AJ Johnson. Of course, the only person Vols linebacker has got to blame for the trouble he’s in is himself. You know, if he’s guilty.

13) Kentucky

Louisville is coming. We can’t wait.

14)  Vanderbilt

Urgh.
